Outage Update

Just want to give a quick update on the status of the outage at the Blue Tower. We are still without power or cell phone access, and the power company is not offering a time when things are expected to return, which is obviously not a good sign. It turns out there was a tornado in the area which explains the devastation. We're keeping our fingers crossed that things will return, and I'll try and let you know what's up as soon as I can. Sorry for the down time.

Oh, that's probably true, there are some seriously intense texture packages now days. I don't play big competitive mboa and CS pvp type games, will see if I can squeak by. Do you think I will need 8gb to get 60fps@1440p in single player games like HZD, Fallout 4 (so many mods, so little time) and really looking forward to Steam versions of Outer Worlds and Control?

You need 8gb VRAM .. never, ever go below that. Anything less than 8gb will give you issues in modern games, at 1440p anyway. But even at 1080p it can rear its ugly head... it's got nothing to do with FPS, if you run out of VRAM most DX12 games will just crash. And for RAM, not below 16GB
Gtk, thanks. I've never even tried dx12 or 1440p, so I can just run it at 1080p. I'll still wait to pick up a new video card, iirc the new cards come out in about 2 months. I probably won't be able to save more than $100 on mobo and cpu, which I would get the benefit of for the next 4 months. It's strange to hear dx12 just crashes, if I had an issue in dx 9-11 we could just adjust settings like AA or Shadows. I most meant being able to run at 60fps as being a smooth measure with most settings at high. Sounds like I've over estimated the power of the 3700x, RAM, and GTX1060. Thanks

It's true - 8 GB is the minimum for current gaming at 1440p. The1060 is still alright at 1080p, though. I hope AMD and Nvidia will offer good value with AT LEAST 8 GB video memory with their new cards that should be coming out in a month or two. We will see. And 16 GB system RAM are also a good call for the next few years. The Ryzen 3700x is a good choice - maybe get a mainboard with the new B550 chipset, too. They are pretty cheap but some are really, really good and you could even run a new 4700x on them.
