    Planning an AM4 build in January assuming AMD comes through with Summit Ridge on the 17th-18th or so. Lots to plan, and since Asus had arguably the best FM2+ boards (A88x-Pro, Crossblade Ranger), it makes sense to go back to Asus for AM4.

    So um, hi!

    Cool HI All

    Don't Consider myself to be a Gamer anymore...lol
    Duke Nukem or Castle Wolfenstien I think was the last games I really played.
    Been around computers since Dos 5 and Windows 3.1. Commodore 64 was given to me right before I built my first computer.
    My first build was a 386 AMD which I had playing lots of games that were supposed to run on faster machines. Qemm 386 and quarterdeck software made it all possible till Microsoft assimilated all the competition. {Memmaker in Dos 6 was stolen from Qemm}
    Ancient history.
    Built lots of computers over the years and IT my own network for students that live in our guest house and go to the local university.
    Just replaced a pos Dell Precision that I threw back at Dell after 7 months and told them to stuff it.
    Visa gave me my money back and Dell is still trying to ship it back to me...Dell...never again.
    Present machine is a
    http://www.asus.com/ROG-Republic-Of-...52VW/overview/
    that I bought off Amazon.ca
    It will become my office laptop and I am sure it will be able to give me good service for years to come.
    I have one quick question I would like to put out there.
    If I wanted to connect to a monitor or two which mini display port accessory would work best with this machine?

    Question Long time gamer

    Hey everyone.

    I've been a gamer since before I was born. My parents purchased an Atari 2600 before I was born and my mom played it the most while pregnant with me. At some point I became capable of playing myself. I recall playing Asteroids, Combat, Defender E.T., Missile Command, Pac Man and more. Later on I became a Nintendo kid with a subscription to Nintendo Power, followed by a Genesis, and a Playstation. Until that point PC games were limited to school options such as Oregon Trail.

    It wasn't until Doom and Falcon that I started to transition to the PC Master Race. I somehow convinced my parents to pick up an IBM Aptiva where I started to cut my teeth on DOS and random games I would come across. The second PC we had was also an IBM Aptiva and came with Mechwarrior 2. This was when I finally started to get into online games. I still remember Mplayer and Kali.

    Finally I started to run paper routes and cut grass prior to turning 16 to save a little money to buy my own PC. Shortly after getting my first job as a cook for Pizza Hut I was able to purchase my own machine with my own hard earned cash. It was an Alienware. Many years before Dell made that purchase. I called them up. Spoke with a sales guy. I knew what I wanted. Pentium 2 with a pair of Voodoo 2 in SLI. The thing was a beast, tower speakers, large monitor the best $2500 I'd ever spent. I learned basic web design at the time and I was able recoup my cost on it by doing some local websites (looking back they were horrible), along with gaming (Command and Conquer, Jane's games, Diablo and more).

    Over time new hardware came out, new games stressed those Voodoo2s 3Dfx was dying. The TNT2 Ultra came out. Was my first upgrade. Followed by RAM. A hard drive. After that I lose track, full PC builds came along, I recall one of the ever popular Dragon cases. I won an Abit NF7-S 2.0 motherboard in a 2v2 WC3 tournament. I think I popularized the oversized mouse mat well before they actually existed (staples printer pad). Played massive amounts of Unreal Tournament.
    Went to college.
    Got sucked into WoW.
    Became a Network Admin.
    Got married.
    Had a kid.

    And anymore you can find me playing Overwatch, Battlefield 1, World of Warships and World of Tanks mostly.

    My most recent build as of this year:
    CPU: Intel i7-6700K
    Cooling: Corsair H110i
    Motherboard: Asus MAXIMUS VIII GENE
    RAM: Corsair Vengeance LPX 32GB (4 x 8GB) DDR4-3000
    Storage: Samsung 950 PRO 512GB M.2-2280 (and a couple non-important random old drives)
    GPU: EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 (was actually a step-up shortly after making the mistake of getting a 980ti FTW)
    Case: Corsair 350D
    PSU: Corsair AX860i
    Keyboard: Razer Blackwidow Chroma Stealth
    Mouse: Razer DeathAdder Chroma
    Webcam: Razer Stargazer
    Mousepad: Razer Goliathus Extended Control Edition
    Speakers: Logitech Z-640 5.1 (these are ancient, but still functional)
    Headset: None at the moment, I have a nice directional lapel mic that I use instead and still leverage my speakers
    Displays: 3 Dell U2212HM monitors (In the not too distant future my center monitor will be replaced with a 1440p 144hz variety)

    My PC:
    The 980ti has been replaced by the 1080 now, I'm just too lazy to take a new picture.


    My office (shortly after moving in and before building the new PC):

    Bonus hobby/work photos, my home network/lab:

    Passion for PC's

    Hey there guys. CowPrince you're a beast man. I actually am very new to Pc Gaming but I love it. I built my first gaming Pc about a yr ago with a 2600k 16gb ram and a gigabyte mobo with a gtx 560ti. Two months later traded my 560ti for an h100i v2 cooler and bought a gtx 980 Strix oc from a friend for 275. Three months ago sold my whole set up and after falling head over heals in love with the custom PC movement. Got an i7 6700k oc'd to 4.5 Ghz with 1.31v, an Asus z170 Deluxe Motherboard, 32 gb 3200Mhz Dominator Platinum that I have oc'd to 3333Mhz. Gtx 1080 Ftw Hybrid, 256gb 950 pro m.2 all crammed into a sexy Corsair Carbide 400c case. 27" Asus 1440p 144hz display and a Razer Blackwidow Chroma kb and Naga Chroma mouse that I absolutely love. That I just learned how to use. Up until just under 2 months ago I used a controller, now I'll never pick up another one again in my life. I love Pc's and I'm perfectly happy driving my 22 yr old Isuzu Rodeo for the rest of my life and blowing all my money on tech stuff Lol.*Click image for larger version.

    Hello and welcome!

    Hello and welcome! I'm a 37/m living in MI, who just got my hands on a (gently used) ROG GL502 Laptop!

    At any rate, I dabble mostly in the FPS realm, although I dabble in the RTS or Civ Strategy games here or there...

    I also game with a group (GSN), so if you're interested, let me know! See you around...

    Hello, on and off gamer that got the Z170 PRO GAMING/Aura during boxing day sales.Other than that, person into Japanese idols and wota (2D and 3D), anime, and Japanese things in general.

    Coming from a rather old PC running a Core 2 Duo E8400 after about 8 years of use. Now sporting an i7 6700k OC'd to 4.6 GHz and loving it!

    Still keeping the old parts in storage in an event I could use them for a HTPC or something.
