Talk about games other than Destiny. We don't mind.

So I'm migrating to PC gaming (share your build!)

I've been planning this in the background for over a year, and seeing what a trainwreck I think the XB1 is about to become for its core audience I'm hauling ass and moving to the good side of gaming (again). Since I haven't been down this route for almost a decade, what hardware is good right now? Basically, post your builds :D

    i7-3770k Intel processor GTX 670 8GB ram Windows 8 1TB hard drive I believe the i7-3770k is the best "performance" (not extreme level) grade processor out there currently for Intel. If you're building a new build though I would highly recommend waiting a month or so and getting a 4th-gen Haswell Intel CPU. Intel's roadmap is based on a yearly "tick-tock" system where the "tick" is an updated version of the previous technology and the "tock" is a new microarchitecture as a whole. The i7-3770k was a "tick" so it wasn't a huge advancement, but a good Sandy Bridge advancement nonetheless, but I may just update to a Haswell CPU if I have extra cash to blow this June as it should bring some cool improvements. That's pretty unlikely though as the Haswell CPU will require a different socket than what my mobo supports and what my current CPU requires and I don't feel like gettin a new mobo and goin through the process of seeing what is compatible and what not. Shit I remember last year around this exact time I was tracking my shipments for my parts. Building this PC was fun as hell If I strike it rich in the future I'm gonna love making a yearly build just for the shit of it cause that was some real fun lols. I'm not even a hardcore PC gamer anyways. Intend to log more hours on my Xbox One as opposed to on my PC in regards of gaming just as I have the past 6 months with this new build and my Xbox 360.

    image only slightly related... AMD FX-4170 (lapped and mudkip'd) MSI 990-FXA GD80V2 2x GTX 460 8GB RAM Samsung f3 1tb Plus everything watercooled. Just a note for GPUs, I believe Nvidias 700 line is starting to come out. It's re-branded 600s, but it should also be cheaper/make the 600s cheaper.
