Well the new PC is beefy but not beefy enough to play The Division, but at least it can play with some of the higher resolution! It just needs a bit more oomph to it, then again I didn't buy it for gaming in the first place, I got it for making videos.
Sakiri
Reminds me, I gotta get filmora working so I can finish that one video I was working on.

Or find a different program. That one crashes a lot for me during playback of an in progress video.

As a side note, apparently unemployment rate is as high as it's been since the great depression.

When you layoff or furlough workers cause a company is afraid of germs, unemployment spikes tend to happen. however I do believe the media should also be held accountable for causing a world wide panic. I mean people get sick even die from it all the time but leave it to the news trigger people into panicking and crashing the economy over nothing.

Oddly, I'm having no trouble with it whatsoever. That said, I'm not using the current version, since for whatever reason it can't be updated to from the version I use. I don't feel like doing a clean install and have re-do all my many setting modifications, assuming I remember them. But again, the version I run has behaved admirably.
Sakiri
It started with later versions of Filmora9 as of last year.

9.3.whatever is the current version, and it's freezing, lagging and crashing for others, not just me.

So I'm in the market for another piece of software.

Oho! Indeed, 9.3 is the version that doesn't allow a simple update from within 9.2x. Ergo, I still use 9.2x. I guess that turns out to be a good thing!

That might explain it then.

Also, nice setup, Reaps!


Thanks, I'm going to get a HDMI splitter so both my PC and Xbox One X can enjoy the monitor without having to switch between the two cables.

Wise. I hate having to switch cables.

Actually I can't wait to play The Elder Scrolls Online with this new setup.

I have a switch that allows me to switch between two computers. All I do is hit two buttons and it goes from one computer to the other. Was pretty nifty at the time I wanted to do that.

Gave my PC a proper workout today, I downloaded TES: Online and have it playing at MAX SETTINGS!!! Game looks amazing!

Clicky thing here .

Saw in the guild roster that you were playing earlier today, Reaper. So pleased to see you in ESO and your game does indeed look fabulous!

Thanks. I would have played on PC but didn't have one that could play TESO very well, I usually played it on console. But I'm back on PC better then ever biggrin.gif .

I never played ESO on console. Or any mmo really. Just seems like an awkward idea.

The one thing I LOVE about ESO is that you can play it just like a regular Elder Scrolls Game, sure there's social stuff you can do but mostly you can play at your own leisure. It's why I prefer ESO over WoW.

I'm still not to keen on PC gaming cause mostly with every game that comes out you need to update your rig and that can be a pricey hobby. At least with consoles like the Playstation or Xbox One the game will run no matter what.

Which is why--even though I greatly prefer PC gaming over consoles--the whole PC Master Race thing is so stupid. Elitists actually get offended that somebody would want to play on something that isn't a computer. But I'm not trying to play all the latest and most technologically intensive games, so I'm not constantly trying to upgrade my rig. I'll joke about being part of the PC Master Race, but the people who actually believe they are superior because of what they game on are idiots.

I remember seeing a legitimate argument from somebody who apparently felt the need to lecture people on all of the reasons PC was the only real way to play games that featured a webpage that was practically a whole book's length. That someone actually took the time to write it up was quite sad.

Related to this, here is an article about trying to build a PC to match PS5 specs for the same price as the PS5 at launch. I was curious if it could even be done.

As for PC gaming, I haven’t had to upgrade a single piece in my PC since I built it and it runs every game I’ve thrown at it on “ultra” settings. That said, I built it with longevity in mind so I spent a little more on some components than was technically necessary at the time. That year before I built it, I was saving up and buying components like some people buy guns! tongue.gif

Yep. I say let people play games however they prefer. If they are happy with consoles, that’s fine! If they decide they want to save up and build a more powerful pc, that’s also fine. In the end, it’s all about games anyway.

I like to joke about being a PC Snob too. But it is just a joke. Play however you like. Back in the day I owned a Sega. I bought it just to play Soul Caliber. My girlfriend had it, and I loved playing it at her place. So I went out and bought one for myself, played the crap out of Soul Caliber, and never touched it again once I 'beat' the game with every character.

What really keeps me away from Consoles is I hate the controllers. They feel slow, crude, and clunky in my hands, when compared to a keyboard and mouse.

That is a really interesting article! Like you, I built my current PC about 7 or 8 years ago. I am not really sure how long ago it was. I spent about 2k on it, because I wanted something that was going to be able to play Skyrim on Ultra settings. Since then I had to replace the graphics card because the old one died. But other than that, I have never had to upgrade it in any way to keep up with technology. I don't see having to for at least another 5 or 10 years, to be honest. Maybe not even then.

On the other hand, if you aren't concerned about playing games at the very highest settings, you can go buy a PC at Micro Center or Best Buy for $300 - $400, and put a decent gpu in it for about the same price, and still have a serious gaming rig. My second PC, that I use for burning discs and keeping backups, is like that, except without the add on gpu. It could run any game on it just fine, even it not at x16 Anti-Aliasing and so forth.

I, too, hate controllers. They feel wrong. I don't have the same level of control as I do with a keyboard and mouse.

There was supposedly some argument for why they wouldn't do cross platform play.

The answer was, computer players stomped console players.

If the reasoning for that is because controllers are sub par game control devices I'll never know... but I will say that some games are absolute trash with keyboard and mouse.

I actually own a PS4 controller. Why? Because Monster Hunter: World plays like complete buttcakes without one.
