Finally upgraded my PC!!

Recommended Posts

After tolerating a Phenom (I bought off Snacko ages ago) for way too long I stumbled into a bit of luck

My eldest (who works at same company as me and lives at home) took pity on his mum playing Sims on a non-gaming laptop, and dropped $800 on a new one for me.

This liberated the same amount for me from my bonus, and I now have a Ryzen 1800X in an Asus ROG (yeah really lol) Crosshair V1 board with 16GB DDR4.

Oh and my first SSD, a Samsung 960 Evo 256Gb.

Yet to get the RAM running as well as it could, who new RAM timings could run to 100s of settings! (I got GSkill F4-3200C16D-16GVKB which is not on the QVL for the board).

DCS is smooth, with my 4 year old 770GTX (perhaps I may get a 1070+ for my birthday) as is Assetto Corsa powered by my G920 Wheel setup (I was 'permitted to buy that out of my bonus last month to replace the one I sold to FruitBat LOL).

IL2 in all its flavours is silky smooth too, now to get practiced again so I can get online.

I feels good to let go of the old girl huh?

Mine old AMD died in January and it took till almost March to break down and order myself a new Mobo, CPU and Ram. I almost bought the same stuff you did, but ended up going Intel with a Gigabyte board.

Yes!  I recently went from a 770 to a 970 and it's really made a difference.  1070 should be...mmmm.....:thumbsu:
