daniel_ got a reaction from Sandy in Current Gaming Setup
I find it weird when people play csgo on settings that are not ultra low. High settings in csgo only brings negative consequences even when you can still get 300fps on ultra. Too many extra visuals with high settings that literally gives you a disadvantage in game.

daniel_ reacted to Demon in After $2338, My first build is born
I'd like to preface that this is my first ever PC build but also includes the progress of my entire setup as a whole. I really wasn't sure what to expect, was a fairly slow start saving up the money but extremely worth it. Not running half the games I play at an acceptable (to me) image quality VS framerate to my absolute dream build has been mind blowing, being able to experience everything you throw at this rig on their highest settings without so much as a sweat so smoothly and easily has genuinely rejuvenated my experience of playing PC games as a whole. Overall just beautiful and something I've been wanting to get going for awhile. Below I've put together a basic rundown of the project and how much it has cost me. (Pricing will include tax.)
• AMD RX480 4GB
• Intel i5-7400 3.0GHz
• B250m Bazooka
• 8GB DDR4 RAM (stock is lowest speed)
• 1TB Toshiba HDD
• Thermaltake 600w PSU
• Desk was a temp I made (48in)
• Logitech G403 mouse
• HyperX headphones
• BLUE Snowball desk mic (new headset includes BLUE technology for the mic and a desk mic isn't prominent enough for me personally)
• Cyberpower case
Newly added upgrades:
• EVGA RTX 2080 SUPER XC ULTRA
• Ryzen 3700x (Includes wraith cooler)
• Asus TUFF X570+ WIFI
• G.SKIL DDR4 Ram 3200Mhz 16GB
• Silicon Power 1TB M.2 SSD
• WD Blue 1TB SSD (including SATA cable and mount cost)
• Corsair RM750X PSU
• Auag 55" gaming desk
• VIVO Single arm monitor mount
• Glorious Model o Mouse
• RAZER Mouse Bungee
• Logitech G. PRO X headset
• Aftermarket fans X3
Breakdown pricing of newly added upgrades in order:
Total spent on setup new setup: $2338
Pre-existing PC Setup/untouched parts
• DX Racer (duh)
• Cyberpower case (literally the only thing I haven't replaced on the rig yet)
• ASUS VG248QE 144Hz 24" Monitor
I used to play on an old laptop stacked ontop of two books and a Cheez-it box (no joke I ran that setup for two years from 2014-2016). Pleasantly surprised how quiet and consistently cool this setup is as well, my old rig was a jet engine with the power of a shopping cart but the heat of the sun
I am still waiting on some of these parts to come in through shipping (none of which are main components, I've already got my rig essentially fully set up) but I will post the end result of everything together in a couple days whenever they come in. Current cable management is enough for me right now as I'm switching everything out of this old case soon. I'm also not bothered by the overall money I've spent like I originally thought, I'm genuinely happy with everything and it's performance compared to where I started. My mindset behind this build is to not be limited because of price or if something seems out of reach and to just purchase what I want.
As you can see I've yet to sync any RGB yet (too busy enjoying Witcher 3 atm). I'm waiting the rest of my things to come in to swap out the old with the new but here is a little sneak peak .

I mean what really is counting? An abstract process that we, as a race, created millenias ago to aid and normalize daily life? 1, 2, 3, 4, 5… and it just goes on. And on. AND ON. The thought process is behind that is just wild. Imagine being the first person to rationalize the idea of counting. What did they call it? Not one, or two, or three like we did? Probably something like, ร๔, ﻮŦร, ﻮร. We know the system we use now isn’t anything like that, and that it is based in on an ancient Arabic system. Did those back then assume that they would be altering the course of history when they formalized their concept of counting? To us it is easy to look a pile of things and say, “Hey, that looks like X amount grams of weed. Neat.” Presumably someone else would from millania ago would also find easy—but how easy would it be for someone back then to rationalize the idea of negative objects. Even now, how do we see that without seeing it on paper. If I have a stack of 9,289 rocks, and move 32 over to a new pile, it’s easy and simple to see that there are now only 9,257 rocks in the OG pile and now a new pile of 32. But if I was to come up and eat 384 of the rocks from the pile with 9,257 rocks, how do we explain where they went? The pile went from 9,257 to only 8,873, but yet there are no additional rocks in the pile of 32. Do we consider those which use to be members of the larger pile to now be negative?
