You people make me feel better about my frivolous spending.
 
In hardware news (will spoiler to shield Motoki's sensitive eyes):

Microcenter is the devil go thing it is a 4 hour drive so I can't go anytime. I really like that case was a contender when I was looking at my next case upgrade (even though you already know that I liked it from TheHangout). You should post in the Show Your Build thread once you get everything in there.
 

That looks nice, but I was secretly hoping it was going to be one of these when I clicked:

Another contender was that Tristellar case but I would have had to buy a new itx mobo for it and sacrifice so things for it so skipped.

So I got this case that I preordered on May 27th and still waiting on and bought a whole bunch of extra shet I don't need instead of just swapping out my old components:

The one I got is on the left, it will be all white and it holds a full atx mobo next to an itx case it should be small as Fuck

So I pretty much checked out of the CoD franchise after Modern Warfare and only returned with Blops 3 since it allowed me to shoot robots that would then explode, so I'm completely unfamiliar with everything in between. Is the Ghosts campaign worth it for $6.99? I'm only considering it because in the last year or so my mind has deteriorated to such an extent that I find myself enjoying shooters more than most other genres.

Seasonal Resident FPS CAG:

For $6.99 it is a good game to play through for the campaign. The story will be like most CODs where there is a bad guy have to go kill him but there are some twist in the story. I played through on the console (boo I know) but if you liked Blops3 like I do then it will satisfy your FPS hunger. I remember it being short so to get any good length out of it play on Veteran which you should play all CODs on anyways.

 

tl;dr: Activision is stingy with discounts and campaign is good enough for $6.99.

Does anyone know if getting the extra 4 GB of VRAM for the RX480 8 GB is worth it or would 4 GB be sufficient for gaming? Are there a a lot of games needing more than 4 GB especially since I'm still gaming at 1080p? 

 

The extra $50 isn't much but I wonder if I'll see any performance changes with the extra RAM.

SeasonalCAG Hardware Opinion: You should try to get the highest card you can afford so it lasts longer learnt that lesson the hard way when I got one 970 some games need more VRAM then SLI got tired of some games not supporting SLI then got a 980ti. Just like others have said with more devs not making pc the primary platform we get some very bad optimized games. Some games that would use up that 4GB is Shadow of Mordor with HD and Ultra settings, Witcher 3, Ashes of Singularity and Batman Arkham Knight (I know I know) off the top of my head.

 

tl;dr: Get the 8GB because some games need it even at 1080p.

Seasonal Rant: Where is Brut when we need him for this hardware talk?
 
Everyone talking about SSD you need to step your game up and get one of these:
 
 

Got the Samsung 950 Pro M.2 and it is fast as heck transferring files not noticing any with games but it is really the size of a pack of chewing gum:

To get back on topic:

 

Tale of me breaking records on Just Cause 3 (it's steam game, so totally on topic)

This is reminds of me of when I use to try (and did) beat Fox's (not hack the cheap one) scores on Sleeping Dogs it made me play longer and added an extra incentive to complete tasks and I was doing the same in JC3 and took down alot of Mad and Motiv scores but he picked the ones without my score although he did demolish me on that heat level 5 one congrats.
