|prerunnerwannabe||Yeah there are some amazing deals on RX 470s. If AMD had a shadow play equivalent, I would almost certainly have a 470 or a 480. But the 1060 is nice too lol|

|sleepyboy||Yeah it really kinds of bugs me. Almost wish I would have gotten the 470 with it's back plate. But the way prices are going I'll be able to pick up a brand new one for the price I almost paid for an open box model. Right now Micro center is having some great motherboard combos. Some of the motherboards end up being free with the combo deal, plus they severely reduced the price on their open box models. I may try and pick up a case and another video card. Right now Amazon had the EVGA 600B and 700B for 49.99 shipped. That's a great deal and exactly what I need right now, but I'm holding out for the thanksgiving sales coming up. There's always a better deal that pops up.|

|prerunnerwannabe||Yeah, gaming on a 1060 is a throughly enjoyable experience! No backplate is the only complaint I have with mine as well.|

|sleepyboy||I got a cheap led mechanical keyboard and a cheap gigabyte mouse with 3000 dpi. Much better gaming on my newish rig. Wish they had a back plate for my 1060, that or I should put the side back on the case lol. It's a Dell XPS 8300 with a 2320 i5, not quite a 2400 i5 but kicks butt either way. Solid 60 fps on everything I've played so far. Can't complain for something that was free, besides the video card.|

Someone update this lol.
On my end, I picked up a Rosewill mechanical keyboard with cherry mx blue switches for $29 bucks after a rebate. I freaking love it!
I've also been really enjoying playing Day of Infamy. Anyone on here have it?

|CFHGARZA||Moved my desk around and organized my "office" a little bit. Need to rehang the two missing Left 4 Dead posters. Still have car parts EVERYWHERE|

|CFHGARZA||I usually only play games at the second hardest setting, too little gaming time for the ultra hard grind.|

Don't play it on anything but Hardcore and Horde mode for the best effect , the group I was playing with the other night got stuck on the Relic map and couldn't get passed wave 30 on Hardcore and it was getting seriously brutal ..

The other two 470's were 161 bucks. Now that I'm sitting here looking at it installed I kind of wish I went with the Saphire 470 with it's nice looking back plate lol. My friend gave me a Dell XPS 8300 so it's in that for now. Been installing Win 10, formatting drives, and downloading my game libary. The computer came with a 1tb WD, a solid hard drive, so I threw one of my SSD's I have from my bundle buy in it for an OS drive.
Right now I need a bigger power supply. The 500w one I have now is pitiful on the 12v rail as far as amps are concerned. Plus my wife's build really needs a 600w if I want to take it any farther. I was going to pick one up when I got the video card but if that happened then it I would have gotten a 460. Which would be stupid right now being the 1050 is about to drop. One more reason I jumped up in card ranks. I'm pretty excited for the little build that fell into my lap. All I have invested into it is the video card and power supply. All which will swap over to my eventual skylake build.

|prerunnerwannabe||Nice buy! I really like my 1060 but I paid like $285 for mine :D|
