Just built a new PC using an RTX 2070 with the help of the Toms Hardware user forums and also all the helpful articles written during the Amazon Prime Days to find the best deals, such as the Logitech G430 headset and G403 mouse. Games I'll be playing this winter? Most likely ARMA 3 and DayZ especially after the new DLC in ARMA 3 and the modding support DayZ has recently received.

So, I never won anything and wonder how many people have said that in the past. Anyway, my hopefully useful, comment is to state the t the RTX 2060 Super will probably be sweetspot for the average gamer looking to get the most bang for the buck. It's performance is better than most high end GTX and first generation RTX one model up. It also adds some future proofing for those who plan for that. That said, most people on this forum probably already know that.

Anyway, I'm aiming for the 2060 super for my next build. I'm mostly a flight sim guy that plays other games for distraction. With Cyberpunk on the horizon and other games that will take advantage of RTX features, well, the choice is obvious.

Nuff said!

If I had Tom's Hammer -
I'd hammer in the morning
I'd hammer in the evening
All over this land.
I'd hammer out frame rate
I'd hammer out gigahertz
I'd hammer out speed between my buses in my pc
All over the floor.

Add music and dance.

Sure, can't go wrong with free, useful stuff!

There aren't any video games I"m looking forward to right now. There was a lot of impressive content at E3, but most games are loaded up with randomized loot, currency stores, and loot boxes. AAA gaming feels too much like gambling and not enough like entertainment now.

I find it more entertaining to sit down with Unreal Engine and work on game prototypes. Yes, it's a lot of work, but really not that bad given that today's AAA games demand hundreds or even thousands of hours to get all the things.
