Went from a 25 inch budget monitor to this 34 inch wide screen beast.



I've only played about 1 minute of games on it but I can say that games with a wide screen resolution are a new experience. You can see so much shit that its really incredible.
@chumpy this is what I'm running Metro on.

Except the SSD is now 1TB.

I’m running all RTXed and shizznit. It’s glorious.

I keep running out of filters in that giant worm area though :(
Which RTX card do you have?

The ASUS 2080 OC.

It would be pretty disappointing to play an atmospheric type game like this without ray tracing after this. It’s really THAT good. You can’t appreciate how realistic it is make a game feel by seeing it on YouTube videos.

I really wish I could afford to get one of those. :(

AMD certainly has my attention with the potential of their new hardware. Also the new Sony and Xbox versions will be run by AMD so that tells me their new hardware doesn't suck. Hopefully.
 
Anybody use Linux to game? I still use windows 7 and don't want to go to windows 10 post-2019.

Doesn't it spy on you and take issue when you steal programs off the interwebs?
Even hardcore paranoids are using it now. You can turn off pretty much any features you don’t want.

As far as stealing, I never needed to. you’re on your own there. Sounds like a hard way to live.

At first I did it because I was in high school and had no money to buy Morrowind. Now it saves me from buying woke games. If I get even a hint of social justice I pirate and test it to see if its worth buying.
