    Surprisingly many people are now getting a new pc or upgrading their old, so i thought this thread would be good for talking about all the specs and such.

    Im getting a new (1st ever) pc after christmas, and it would include:
    i5 6600
    16GB Ram
    2TB hard drive
    A GTX 1060

    And all other cool stuff. If you want to give me some ideas, or you want to share your pc parts for some thoughts, be sure to leave a comment!!
    Lets be a happy gaming community!!!

  5. I have had VERY bad experiences with MSI motherboards. I would get Asus or Gigabyte. Personally, the motherboard I use is the Gigabyte
    Gigabyte GA-Z170X-Gaming G1 EATX LGA1151

  16. Hello,

    I just thought I would clear things up here. The reason I have such a powerful PC is because I am a freelance cinematographer. I currently have 2 cameras that fill in incredibly high resolutions. (http://www.red.com/store/products/weapon-brain-with-helium-8k-s35-sensor) Due to the high resolution and framerate, I need a lot of storage and a super-powerful PC to handle it. I also need the 3 monitors to improve my workflow and maximize productivity. (This includes work on Mineswine) I also use the computer to run and manage all of Mineswine and play Minecraft. Asides from Minecraft I also play Rust, GTA V, and Arma 3. Let me tell you, those games in 4K is absolutely amazing.

    Thanks

  19. Hey,

    It's not like all of this stuff was given to me. I work 100+ weeks (I am a Fire Fighter Paramedic) and have lots of overtime pay.
