Holy shit that is a nice build and fantastic racing setup.......and you play Euro Truck Simulator. That said I have played it a few years ago and actually enjoyed the moderate change of pace where you can go fast, but within the speed limit works okay as well.

Please tell me you got a case capable of showing off such a build.

It is build for the future too ;) There's no doubt it'll be used to the fullest :)

That's pretty much what I want with my build. Not have to do much to it for at least 12 months or so. Then maybe trying and maintain it and turns the parts over a bit more regularly. Preferably only 1-2 parts at a time so its not such a cost when I do upgrade. I think any house I live in now would have to have a good space for me to use my PC. As much as I love my MacBook it just doesn't work for PC gaming and more intensive projects.

That's a nice setup, I'm jealous. My European trucking company only runs at 30 FPS.

I'm also tempted to get a new monitor whilst I'm at it. Its only gonna cost me $150-$250 depending on what I get. I would still keep this one and just run dual monitors. Which if I'm gonna do some more streaming it would be handy.

Also realised that at the end of July or so I should get my tax refund, which could be anywhere between 500-800 bucks (if the past is any indication). This would possibly be enough to get my "over the line" so to speak in my PC upgrade.

Okay, so certain scenarios in my life have actually flipped stuff on its head. I'm writing a long post up but the end game is that my PC build can be moved forward. If the money clears in the next 48 hours (which it should) then I can go shopping THIS WEEKEND to buy and build the parts.

Also, a slightly upgraded version of my build.

Nice 8) That'll do nicely, i'm sure.

I went from a 19 to a 27 inch HD monitor. Such an improvement (thumbsup2)

Sounds nice for the games you play, what did it cost you?

it should run all that i want and then some ... as far as cost around $800, lets just say i stayed within my budget but could have gotten more bang for my buck if i had picked parts and built it myself ... however that was not an option ... the monitor is amazing i can actually read the different gages and info on the dashboards of the trucks in ets2 ...

What about the "I just didn't want to go slow" excuse?

Also, we will need to have another session once you guys have decent mics which you can use on your PC.

Discord is easy.

Quite literally you can click this link and it will take you into the "General" voice chat channel. From there I can drag you down to the Gamechat channel which we try and restrict to those actually playing the game.

@VMB-TAN What headset do you use for the PS4? Is it possible that its able to be used on PC as well?

try the following instructions copypasta from Reddit:

While headphones are plugged in... Goto - Control Panel -> '... Audio Manager' (might be Realtek HD Audio Manager) -> Select 'Mic' Tab (At top) -> Click 'Device advanced settings' (At top right) --> Select radio button, "Separate all input jacks as independent input devices". Click OK ----- To confirm... Right click tray speakers(Volume) select 'recording devices' (confirm microphone is active) --> highlight "microphone" --> Click 'Set default'(Default device) (At Bottom) --> Close. Done.
