i7 2700K @ 3.5ghz

16Gb DDR3 - Dual Mode

AMD 7970 w/ 3Gb VRam (GDDR5)

I still run a good deal of recent games well at 1440p at Medium-to-High or above w/ 50-60fps.

I have: i7 950 Bloomfield, 16 GB RAM DDR3, and GTX 970.

 

No clue how FC5 runs, don't have it yet. Probably won't have that for a while.

My PC is too weak for FarCry 5.  It looks like they could have modeled the game after my town (based on scenery) in Montana.

We're surrounded by 7th Day Adventists (same cult as Davidians in Waco).

 

...I may need to upgrade, or just snag a console for this game.

What are your PC's specs?

A cable is a cable when it comes to HDMI.  Its not analog were it can lose signal.  It either works or it doesn't.  Just make sure its 1.4 standard.

My old 25'' foot HDMI cable (which worked perfect on my old 1080p HDTV) doesn't work on my 4K HDTV. Don't know the name of it (bought it ultra dirt-cheap off NewEgg, a while ago), but the signal it sends is funky-looking - flashes on the screen b/t the the picture itself and a blank picture; picture can work and turns pink or white w/ other nonsense; and other ugly non-sense you can think of. It's also very skinny cable, too.

 

I use namely SteamLink for sending from my 4K PC to my 4K TV. That works fine and dandy.

 

I do have a nice thick 6 foot HDMI cable (again, another no-name cheap cable) that I sometimes connect from my 4K laptop to the 4K HDTV - and that works just fine, when I do so. No issues.

@BigTime2Play

 

Welcome to PC gaming! I hope you enjoy your new bad-ass PC gaming monster rig, once it arrives and all.

 

I can't wait until you tell us your stories of fantastic gaming at 60fps gaming at 1440p and maybe some stuff at 4K, with a CPU and GPU like that - you know, to get me super jealous and all. ;)

 

What kind of monitor are you pairing w/ this monster rig of yours?

Steam client was updated today, includes high-DPI support for Windows 10 (looks much better now) and this one for MysterD:

Improved behavior when re-installing from retail discs or backup files, preferring to avoid downloads whenever possible

This is a Humble Monthly sacrifice trap right?

 

Vanquish + Bayonetta = $11.99

 

https://www.fanatica...s-vanquish-pack

Sega Humble incoming tomorrow. There's our BTA tier.

 

Regardless, don't think I can resist Fanatical's deal here...

 

EDIT:

Yup, I bought it. Glad I did. Bayonetta's incredible so far.
