here's my rig, with the latest technology of 2012 in it
Surprisingly, that 5750 still keeps up with most newer games on full settings.

I don't find it surprising given your monitor resolution; you're more CPU-bound than GPU-bound around 720p.

The CPU is an i5-3470, not sure why it doesn't say that.

Either the piece of hardware refers to itself using a family name rather than the exact model (AMD GPUs do this; they call themselves "7900 series" rather than 7950/7970/etc.) or it's a model that Piriform doesn't see often enough to add a specific identifier for; the 3570k was the popular one out of the Ivy chips.

I'll probably be putting together a Ryzen box at some point over the next year.

I'm going to attempt installing my new R9 270 soon, should be a nice update.

We got fibre a few months ago. It's pretty good.



Specs are probably different too.

I don't even know what I'd do with downstream speeds like that, but I'll certainly take that 11ms ping.

Just upgraded to a GTX 1060, and I'll be getting a 1TB drive soon as well. Apparently my primary hard drive is actually a datacenter-grade drive. Great for reliability, but seek times are less than ideal.

So apparently that GTX 1060 (6GB) is worth $600+ right now.
THANKS BITCOIN.

Right? Tempted to take my graphics card out. It'd pay for RYZEN build I've been wanting to do.

It jumped up to $1000 at one point, and that would've paid off a good chunk of my car loan. Oh well, I'd rather play video games.
