Will keep the core 2 quad as a back up. the old tank really was quite indestructible...

 

So... I am only eight years behind the times.... instead of ten.... wow.

 

Now.... how do I really test it.... hmm... some kind of game I think...

Salute!

hmmm...

 

A Gamer simulator! Of COURSE!

 

You can choose to live at home with your perants

or

homeless person war driving with a solar powered super laptop

or

double income no kids urban professional but are addicted to prescription medication but have all the expensive toys...

 

You have to balance "in game" with "real life".

 

wow so many different things that could be modeled. Acts of god, relationships, hackers, intoxication.... wow!

 

of course some person is working on this right now I bet. or will be...

 

May fave would be

 

* you are too fuzzy from the night before to input your password and get it wrong three times in a row you now have to wait 15 minutes to try again.."

 

or

 

* ignoring the storm warning you try to stay ahead in the stats only to get struck by lightening which fries your new PC and sets fire you your parents house. "

( and stuff about voiding the insurance as you did not heed warnings to unplug your PC )

 

Me come back? Never.  My Russian girlfriend would have a red white and blue fit. or thump me with a frying pan. * cowering sounds*

 

Merry blinking christmas!

 

Salute!

 

Planky.

I think a new GPU would help aswell mate. Especially with Flying Circus coming, I'm assuming there'll be a big step up in graphics. Hopefully.

 

Merry Christmas to you all!

Its actually an Honor to get stung by a bee.

It hates you so much, that its willing to die just

to cause you a mild amount of pain.

Dads been thinking about getting a 4k 48+inch tv/monitor to hook up to my computer for watching movies, etc. I might be able to do some gaming on it too. That would be great!

4K TV's are just about the way to go now.

Only thing is you'll need a suitable Graphics Card to drive all those pixels around.

p.s. and once you have a large screen, and resolution, you'll never see those arrows again on the icon servers !

Off the top of my head I think you need the 1070 to run 4K.. ?

I have to agree, my old 980Ti (comparable to a 1070) used to creak a little with really busy sorties on high settings using a 3440x1440 super-wide display. 4K requires even more graphics power at 3840 × 2160. That's the same as running 4 1080p displays.

 

You'll be able to run the game at 4K on the 1060, but you'll probably have to dial the games graphics options down to get smooth gameplay.

 

You could try and play at a lower res than native, as a 49" screen is still a really good size to game on. Even with settings dialled down.

Am i able to make the screen smaller by putting a black bar at the top? I mean, a 49 inch seems a bit over kill.

 

But if i keep the width but drop the height of the screen a bit it might improve performance a bit.

 

Am i right?

Does it allow you to run in 3440x1440 or any kind of 21:9 ratio?
I have no mega screen experience. Just an idea.

If you haven't got the screen yet and it's not too late to change.. may I suggest a 40" instead ?

That's the size I got a few months ago and tbh probably wouldn't want anything bigger.

It's a big area to look around from close range, e.g. if my head is turned left (utilising tracking), my eyes can barely swivvel far enough to see the right of the screen.

But but but...

 

ZF your eyes don't swivel!

 

Ahem, they is compound eyes and you just switch to an "eye cell" what is pointing the the rite direction. : - ) 

 

and.... this thread was about my spangly new old used i7 what I got.... 

and... there is already a thread devoted to LARGE screens what stumble is getting.... 

 

here:

 

https://riseofflight...c/51319-4k-rof/

 

 

so, lose points for thread duplication!

 

Duel? Looser has to buy the bar a round.... ( and plonking down a .303 tracer on the bar is not cricket! see what I did there...) 

 

Salute!
