    What PC's do you use and what's the (relevant) specs?

    Do you use a desktop, a laptop, or a macbook?

    How many (or rather, what kinds of) ports does it have?

    How many gigs of RAM does it come loaded with? How fast does it operate for you?

    What's the hard drive space? Is it the old HDD, an SSD, or a hybrid of both?

    I have a surface book 2, which is a hybrid of a laptop and table. Has around 237 Gigs, but I bought a 8 terabyte external hard drive plus another 5 terabyte EHD. It has 2 USB ports, the rest I don't know what they are for. A decent computer, hasn't failed me yet.

            Built my PC over the holiday. Went for affordability over all. Sales helped.

            Found a cool green tower to fit it all in, too.

            MSI-X370 Gaming Plus motherboard
            AMD Ryzen 5 1400 Quad Core
            GTX Geforce 1060 3GB GPU that was a gift
            16 GB DDR4 Corsair Vengeance RAM
            200GB SSD (gift, not sure the brand or anything), 650GB western book external drive (had it for a decade), and a 1TB WD Blue harddrive (that I ripped from an old PC I had)
            Elgato HD60 Pro capture card
            Also ripped a CD/DVD drive from that old PC. My tower has a slot for a second one, so I might add a Blu-Ray drive later on... Idk.


            Whatever ports are on those pieces lol

            I'm sure I'll double the RAM eventually, but I already upgraded from the 4GB I had when I first bought it. I'm sure I'll also upgrade a lot of the other pieces, or add secondary ones later on.
            My next purchase needs to be another monitor... but I'm honestly fine with finding a compatible one at Goodwill if I can xD
            My current one is a Sceptre 24 inch curved model I got over black Friday for cheap. I have it connected through a DV-I port on my laptop to an HDMI port on my monitor. If I could find a monitor with HDMI and VGI connection like this one, I could connect this AND my TV to the mix (so that I stop having to unplug my SNES classic to move my PC feed to my TV when my wife and I watch our shows)

            I use it for gaming, movies, and streaming, so I have a cheap camera, a decent cheap mic with a nice arm, a Redragon gaming mouse, and an Azio keyboard.


            I also have 2 2GB RAM sticks and an old ass GPU in my closet that I don't know what I'm going to do with xD

              That really sounds heavy duty. How well has it held up so far?

                Oh its working perfectly.
                Got it hooked up to a ROG Swift 1440p 144Hz GSync monitor and its working beautifully.

                The only issue I have is I was a bit careless while cleaning my PC with a pretty powerful air compressor, and I spun the shit out of my graphics cards fans. Now the bearings on the middle fan are kinda fucked and its making all sorts of annoying noises.

                  Cool, how does Quad HD work on it though, does that render certain apps hard to view due to lack of optimization?

                  Would a warranty happen to cover that or is it already void/expired?

                    Havent noticed any issues with the resolution. Pretty much everything supports QHD
                    Warranty would probably cover it, but I just keep delaying it because it still works as it should. The temps are unchanged and performance isnt suffering. The sound is just annoying.

                        But surely that's not the only thing you use a PC for, is it?

                              That looks fine but also too flashy as well. Could use an SSD or two.
