    Im getting 50 fps on The Witcher 3, on high, im PC master race officially now, they optimize the hell out of these newer games because I was getting 30-40 frames borderlands 2, I was nervous. My kids glad though they get a PS4 but ill probably build them one of these cheap gaming PCs and cut that psn bullshit out btw out the blue the pc is recognizing the ps4 controller and has the triangle, square etc commands on screen before it was showing XYAB Xbox control scheme. Edit the Witcher 3 has PS4 Dual Shock support and i just realized its only on 720 but it still looks leaps and bounds better than my ps4 running it in "1080p".

    PC's are good for offline gaming but online gaming there is a disadvantage when playing someone with a lesser graphic card than the one you have. You'll eventually have to turn down the foliage in order to make it a level playing field. You may see beautiful trees, bushes, and grass and they see maybe a tree and a stalk of weed. there are pros and cons to all gaming platforms b.

    It doesn't affect you. Someone with a lesser graphic card may not have the same visual as you do. I saw a picture that would show the difference in graphic cards with them playing the same game. What you see may not be what they see.

    129 for the ssd on sale its usually 149 thats another reason I went ahead and copped, ill be straight with that moving foward hopefully I wont have to upgrade that for a while.

    Micro Center is where I got it from they be having some competitive prices on par with online when them sales hit. The irony is I paid the same for the I7 PC I swear im chilling on buying PC shit after this.

    129$ plus 17$ shipping with no hard drive, so around 150. It should arrive tomorrow, really not looking foward to migrating and reinstalling my games and shit at least the ssd + and improved processor should speed things up.
  • AP21AP21 Posts: 16,942 ✭✭✭✭✭

    I needed ram so I said fuck it might as well upgrade everything for few extra dollars cuz ima keep it a stack my first joint was a small form factor and I had that bitch rigged up to fit the graphics card. Windows 10 just installed in 10 minutes no pun.
  • The RecipeThe Recipe Posts: 10,434 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Yo that ssd changes your whole gaming experience on Dragon Age and Witcher 3, the load times are so short you blink and miss them on console you can go run an errand come back and still be loading.
