  1. I'd be interested. Evening/night times are best for me.
  2. I have picked it up. Currently $4.99 on Steam.
  3. Members of MadCast, To begin, thank you to all the members who have been a part of 12 years of success. MadCast has lived through three American presidents, the entire MCU catalogue, and two-and-change generations of video games. Some of our members have found their spouses here. Some have formed friendships that have endured for years. We are proud to celebrate our anniversary with an event that has not occurred since our founding: the installation of two new Staff members. It is no secret that the activity level and availability of some of the current Staff have waned as careers,
  4. Ram prices are supposed to continue to drop into nearly 3rd quarter this year. So keep your eyes on the Ram deals and sales. I'd highly recommend a 2nd 8gb chip so you can get that dual channel goodness rockin.
  5. Then yes I'd say you are at the end of your line at a 1080p resolution with that rig. Moving into 2K or 4K will likely require a GPU and CPU upgrade in your rig, but with that obviously comes a need for a new mobo. You might be able to stretch the machine out, but you're gonna have to drop lots of graphics settings. So I guess it'll depend on how low of settings you are gonna be happy looking at. That's one of my other goals is to get me a somewhat decent 27" 1440p 144 hz as my main monitor. Prices are coming down for them, so soon I hope
  6. Cuz the deals going around for the current available Ryzen chips are pretty good and cheap, relatively speaking. Plus, some of my current games my old CPU is tripping over itself trying to feed frame data. Plus, I certainly am not going to mind having a backup CPU on the off chance there's some issue with the first batch of 3000 series chips. At the ultimate end simply it's AMD and their pricing for the current Zen chips as to why I can justify picking up a nice Zen chip until 3000 comes out. I picked the mobo specifically based upon knowing I'm gonna have a current chip for a short t
  7. Whether you're good with that system depends entirely what you want it to play and what monitor and resolutions you play at.
  8. The ol' raptor drive may be old, but she's still kickin without issue When the 1080 TI becomes an irrelevant bottleneck, I'll look into upgrading it if it's still alive when that time comes.

  10. GoG.com Lots of older games patched to work on current machines. Plus everything on GoG.com is sold DRM free. So once you've got it downloaded and installed you shouldn't need a net connection to run the games. Downside is that you'd have to buy the game on GoG.com. Totally worth it though, IMO. Supports them continuing to bring them old games back from the grave. A lot of the older games do go on sale rather frequently so getting those old games for $5 or so can be doable if you really want to keep costs down.
  11. I hope your shoulder recovers quickly and easily! I have an elbow surgery on my dominant arm in a couple of weeks which has me nervous so I understand how obtrusive and disabling it can be to daily life.

  12. I just bought it from best buy for $40. Sale still ongoing, fyi. I won't get it until the 5th, but that's fine considering my current condition of only really being able to use one hand to operate my comp. Shoulder surgery 2 1/2 weeks ago and hasn't quite gotten to a decent place to start using that arm to do any serious gaming. Surgery was done on the right shoulder of which i am right handed so that makes for an interesting time of things in and of itself, lol.

  14. https://pcpartpicker.com/list/NFbyvV I changed out a couple parts as to what I would go for. Basically switched over to a Ryzen chip. Swapped Motherboard to an AM4 chipset to support the cpu and changed over to ASUS. Also kept the same grade of GPU but with a far better company meaning changed out the gigabyte card to a EVGA card. Comes in cheaper and that Ryzen chip is going to get you more than that Intel chip can. AMD retook a lead finally with their Ryzen chip over the Intel I-chips. Plus the parts I have in there are $150 less, which frees up even more room to up that
  15. https://www.razerzone.com/gaming-mice/razer-naga-hex-v2 Razer Naga Hex V2 on sale this weekend for $34.99 I picked one up since my my normal MMO Naga is randomly losing it's tracking now and then. Plus, I don't really MMO much anymore.
