How powerful is your computer? What specs do you run in your rigs? I want to know how serious your hardware game is. Mine isn't very serious:
CPU: Core i5-4690k
GPU: GTX 1060 6GB
Storage: 240GB SSD, 1TB HDD
RAM: 16GB DDR3
Hoping to get a new PC with a 3090 soon

Aren't you gonna have to upgrade your CPu and Motherboard and PSU and probably RAM when buying the 3090?

CPU: Ryzen 3600 (£160, Amazon, 2020)

CPU cooler: be quiet! Pure Rock 140mm (£30, Scan, 2020)

Motherboard: MSI Mortar Max (£96, Scan, 2020)

RAM: Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB @ 3200 MHz (£65, Scan, 2020) though they're bugging out so using TEAMGROUP RAM currently.

GPU: 980 Ti (£160, Ebay, 2019)

Storage: 1GB Toshiba HDD (£38, Scan, 2014), 500GB Crucial SSD (£53, Amazon, 2020)

PSU: 750W Seasonic M12II (£80, Scan, 2014)

Fans: A few 120mm and 140mm be quiet! and Enermax ones from the Bit-Tech forum for £10 or £20.

Case: A big black one / Silverstone RL04B (£30, Scan, 2014)

Monitor: Either my old 24" Samsung TV (Christmas present!) or my 42" Panasonic Plasma (£150, Facebook, 2014).

OS: Windows 10

And... a DVD RW drive, keyboard and mouse of course

It can generally go 60 FPS on Ultra (at 1080p), though with next gen games like Watch Dogs Legion and Cyberpunk it was 30 FPS. Before I upgraded the CPU/RAM/mobo I was using a near decade-old 2500K (and briefly 2600K) system and that had no problems with even the likes of RDR2.

I only upgraded GPU because my GTX 780 died. I got an SSD because I was getting BSODs and thought it was old driver issues, but it wasn't, otherwise I might not've bothered.

Howzat? Or was it my Windows 98 / XP PC you wanted specs of? :lol:

It's pretty sweet. I initially had the 1TB drive in my XPS 13 while I was travelling with work, but now that job no longer exists it made more sense to throw it in the desktop and put the original 256GB back in. As for the SATA drive, I think my A4 is just a little out on its tolerances and won't close fully with a mechanical drive installed in the front, so I had no choice other than to pick up a very reasonable SSD drive that was a couple of mm thinner :ahee:

Yeah. I think it has taken a toll on my eyes as well. 27 inches is enough and definitely not ultra wide.
