HI fellas!

Just dropping by, as I traditionally do every fifth year.. ;D

Got all nostalgic today and decided to pop in.

I don't have a gaming rig anymore unfortunately, not like in the old days.
Kinda miss all our great mapping making discussions, those were the days.. ;)

Hope y'all are good?

My blog can now be found at steelnpurple.com, NOTHING there is gaming related though, all makeup and skincare. ;)

TTYL <3

Hello diffuse! If you want to build a gaming rig I could offer some information that might save you some cash. If you are interested send me a PM.

Good to see you here again!

Speaking of gaming rigs, I built one fairly recently just for Quake Champions:

i7-6700K (got a deal on it)
ASRock Extreme-4 motherboard, holds 3 graphics cards (wishfull thinking)
ASUS Dual Nvidia 1070, dual hdmi ports and card length of 10.5 inches
AData 120gig M.2 SSD
Seagate Black 3tb drive
Corcair H75 CPU Water Cooler
Crucial 2x8g DDR4-2400 (16g total)
Corcair CX650 power supply
SilverStone HTPC box

Dual boot: Debian Linux on SSD and Win10 on hard drive, to install Win10
on greater than 2gig drive requires a GPT install work-around.

Fits in a media stand that supports the Sony 55X850D 4K HDR TV
Need to disable motion and misc video processings in Sony's settings

Plays QC at 1080p at a pretty good frame rate using high settings.

Oh, I ran into Oppie and Keen on QC :)

My new rig will be delivered tomorrow after work. I’ll post specs and pics tomorrow!
Omg I have so much to install! Gah!

EDIT: Quake 3 will be the first thing to install, I haven't played ANY shooters for like five years! I am so rusty, need to get my rail aim in shape! ;D

I'm sitting with my MAC mini and I love it to death really, even upgraded the RAM on it so it's got 16 gigs, very smooth. But yeah I am SOOOO excited to finally get a gaming worthy rig again! AS I said, I will post pics tomorrow when it's all set up!!
