Just shy of two ton.

Have to spend a fucking fortune to remain part of the master race these days
Nice, I wish I could find the space for a gaming rig or could justify the price at the minute but I’ve got my Series X arriving on Tuesday all things going smoothly.

Wow.

No point bottlenecking that with a 60hz monitor. You getting 120hz or GSync?
Got a new 120hz monitor coming with it.

Should get 150-200 frames playing Warzone and about 4 million on CS

Just need a PS5 at a later date for the exclusives now

Nice.

Despite what people say, there is a significant difference between playing a FPS like CS at 120hz comparatively to 60hz. It's not even close.

The old 'your eyes can't recognise anything past 60 fps' myth :lol:

Loads of CSGO pros managed to compete at 60hz but all moved over eventually. Even without the minitor though higher frames usually results in less input lag as well.

Warzone will be so much better 120hz

Yeah, it's amazing you still hear that in 2020. The only people who perpetuate that myth have obviously never played these games at higher refresh rates.

Got to give it to the new consoles though, they are going to shit on the average budget gaming pc, even a middle of the road one for half the price.

Yeah the loading times look incredible too. I'll probably end up buying one because I only really playing fighting games now and the player base on console is usually better. And frame rates can't actually exceed 60 as a rule, so a 2 grand PC isn't needed.

Honestly the main reason I got this is because I want to play tournaments next year and can't bare the idea of someone killing me with higher frames :lol:

Has anyone played the new Star Wars Squadrons?
a mate bought it when it came out, seems the kind of thing you need a flight stick accessory for and it’s not an arcadey pick up and play kind of experience.

More like a flight sim in terms of difficulty.

Not saying don’t buy it, just know what to expect going in.

Thank you. The last time I played a game similar to that was back in 1991.

I want to play It with a flight joystick controller...not a regular controller.

I think it makes or breaks the game having one.

The demand for them is huge at the moment though and it’s hard to get your hands on a decent one. I think the Thrustmaster sticks are meant to be the industry standard but my bud basically stopped playing the game until he gets one.

Wheels too. Especially back in March were in extreme short supply and at least double the price. Lower end entry stuff was going for $800

I’ll sell anyone here mine for £5k

The machine is fantastic, whisper quiet, really small actually and other than having to download updates for a few games after transferring them from my ext drive, the machine has been flawless.

Downsides are that it’s a next gen machine with no next gen games.

I mean it absolutely chews up anything from the last gen but other than maybe Dirt 5, there’s nothing that’s putting it’s graphics power through it’s paces yet and I hope developers don’t get hamstrung trying to make their games run on old and new hardware.

Don’t get us wrong, I played Warzone all last night on a 4K HDR tv with the new texture pack and I was blown away by how good it look and just stayed awestruck for the entire night.

Doom Eternal plays and looks unbelievable too and the loads times are blistering.

I just want a game that shows me the next gen is here... hopefully Cyberpunk will be that game.
