All the old PC threads I could find were shitty. Seems like a fair amount of PC gamers on here so here's a thread for us. Gonna be posting deals and news and stuff, and I got a good one for you today.

You can get all the Batman Arkham Collection games along withe all the Lego Batman Collection games free right now in the Epic store. Just login and they are all free. Usually each collection is $60 which would be $120 all together.

I'm not into superheros at all but the Arkham games are really good. I never played the 3rd one but the first two are really fun. Would highly suggest logging in and just redeeming to your account. Then if you decide you want to play later all you have to do is login and download the game.

Yeah only just threw my hat in the ring for a 3D animation rig that destroys any game I throw at it.

Epic game store is sick, I致e got about 8 games for free off it in the lat few months, plus got control and wolfenstein free with my graphics card. Love it. First non Mac too.

Just built this little beast, not fully complete so disregard the hanging RGB connector, I知 waiting on some front fans before I route that properly.

CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 1600 AF, overclocked to 3.8 GHz
GPU: Evga GTX 1660 super
Mobo: MSI B450M Pro Vdh Max
Ram: 16 GB 3200 MHz
CPU cooler: deepcool gammaxx 400
PSU: currently a shitty thermaltake smart 500W
Case: fractal meshify mini c

I bought a new quality Seasonic 550w PSU gold cert to replace my nonmodular fire starter. This thing runs games like a champ, just bought the RE2 remake and I知 getting 144 FPS on 1080p 144hz monitor on high settings. The only thing I regret about this build is skimping out on the motherboard, I feel like it痴 limiting my overclock.

My old motherboard fried out so I donated my monitor to my dad's studio and haven't got a decent system back together.

On a shitty dell laptop so only been playing emulators, stardew, and league of legends if I'm super bored.

Still using my razer mouse and roccat keyboard though which I'm very fond of and an old pair of AKG 240 headphones

Just got a new case and an AIO last week. Never used an AIO before and I'm pretty happy.

That Nvidia RTX 3000 series official announcement... god damn unleashing the beast. RTX 3070 to outperform RTX 2080 TI at half of the cost, $499. 3060 should be a budget beast when they announce it later.

So I almost just burned down my apartment building while trying to get my PSU working. Also have to spend another $45 at some point to get my fans working properly. And I've literally shed blood.
First time building a PC is going great. Time to try this again with another power supply wish me luck.
If I catch another motherfucker talking sweet about Ben K I知 fucking beating they ass! I知 not fucking playing no more You know those niggas role with Fat Bill and them.

dawg i gotta ask how the fuck you managed to nearly burn your apartment down getting a power supply working? the only time i'd ever imagine a psu popping would be if it was overloaded, a screw fell in and shorted something or you flipped the voltage switch (which those havent been a thing for the last 10 years or so)

$45 to get fans working?? whats the spec of this build because this sounds odd

I bought the cheapest PSU possible that had at least 4 stars on pcpartpicker. To put it short I don't know PC's it's too much to explain. My EVGA power supply is working great though.

And the fans are ARGB, I don't have an ARGB header on my mobo so I had to buy an external SATA powered controller. As well as a splitter for the fans.

The build is odd, kinda the definition of bad priorities honestly, I haven't even bought my dedicated GPU yet. I'm just using the Ryzen's integrated graphics for now.

Buying either a GTX 1650, 1050Ti, or RX 570

yeah never skimp on a psu, made that mistake when i was younger. pcpp ratings dont really mean shit, a psu can have good reviews and still be garbage. much like skateboards while there may be a shit ton of brands theres a way smaller amount of companies actually doing the production. luckily evga tend to use pretty good oems for their production.

gpu wise im saying go for the 1650 or 570.

Just went with a RX 460, since I play in 720p everything will be running perfectly. (at least judging from all the benchmarks i've looked at on YT. Plus I get to use the extra $30 or so for weed so its perfect.
