also got a vega64 liquid for $699. i just looked at video card prices and i could sell it used right now for nearly double that.
Funny, I just read an article the other day about someone who did exactly that with the same card. They then purchased a new Nvidia Titan Xp, and actually had money left over.

EDIT: I would have done the same thing with my 1080ti, but they aren't going for as much as the AMD cards, which apparently have better compute performance for crypto mining. No biggie though, I'm definitely happy with the 1080ti.

My computer is 2 years old. I think I told the story here, but I skimped on the processor some to keep other components, but ended up having to keep replacing things and ended up with a $1100 rig. I know the processor is a Haswell, but I couldn't tell you if it's a 4590 or 4670 or whathaveyou. I think 4590. The GPU is a 970.

Sad to see that already "recommended." I knew I was buying at the exact wrong time (my old PC died, so I didn't have much choice.)

I'm running a system I built ages ago, with an i7 980x--a CPU that debuted in like 2010 or something. I'm in zero hurry to upgrade. I'm running a 1tb SSD and 1080 Ti. I'm one of those "almost nobodys" who plays in 4k. CPU doesn't even really mean all that much in gaming, and CPUs have been pretty stagnant for years, not really making any appreciable performance jumps. But now, with these latest exploits, the soft fixes have been reducing their performance significantly. I hope the permanent fixes don't also impact performance, because CPUs really need to start making the leaps and bounds that they did back in the 90s and early 2000s. Setbacks like this are worrisome.

Yep, RAM prices, HDD prices, GPU prices, Meltdown & Spectre... Worst time ever to buy a PC. I need a new one soon too. I guess I will have to wait 1 or 2 years longer, even if the prices drop to normal levels again, because Meltdown & Spectre will probably only be fixed in 1 to 3 years.

always upgrade during black friday. i got a 1600x for $180; even with proposed amd price cuts they'll be above $200. also got a vega64 liquid for $699. i just looked at video card prices and i could sell it used right now for nearly double that.

Prices were crappy during Black Friday too. AMD hardware is always cheaper.

Is multiplayer p2p matchmaking? I've never spent any time playing the previous farcry games multiplayer because it's always a subpar experience.

I don't think the game has PvP, only co-op.

Anywho, I appreciate that they actually define their image quality and performance targets per spec. All developers and publishers should do that.

Ubisoft is a shit company but even I can respect the fact that they're targeting specific settings with their system requirements.
Not me, because almost nobody is using 4K. The next strongest higher resolution is 2K. Going by the Steam survey, its about 7 times as common as 4K.
And by the gaming gods, China really messed up Steam stats. Holy crap!

Those specs don't look too horrific.
My system is long overdue for upgrades but as everyone has pointed out it is not a good time.

It's really nice that both minimum and recommended systems have an anticipated fps and resolution posted with them.

Was contemplating a new system this year, but component prices are f*#*% ridiculous. I'll be waiting it out as well.

Was going to buy an upgrade for my CPU for the upcoming games, but now all this Meltdown stuff has me waiting. Think mine is going on 4 years now, the longest I've ever had one.
