It was REALLY funny that I got an i7, and then immediately played Diablo 2 on it, same as you are doing...

I had like $36 in my Steam Wallet from selling uncommon items in TF2, so I just bought Borderlands the Pre-Sequel just today,
not sure about today, it was actually yesterday, as it is on sale, and I am a sucker for sales, even if I played and was done with a game on Xbox 360.

I don't play too many games these days, once I got into Linux my gaming was stunted, and I had primary custody of my son,
but the Fallout 3+++ series, Borderlands, and Bioshock (OG was the best) flipping ROCKED.
Playing some games proceeded as he approached 18.

I haven't tried NV yet, though I do have it on Steam. I always buy games on sale, and I've played probably about 5% of my entire Steam library due to having two young boys and time constraints. But I'll just continue to build my library for the rare occurrence when I have time to play.

My current go to is still Skyrim, which also has a huge modding community, and a fully modded Skyrim is so much more fun (and challenging) to play. I currently use the Ultimate Skyrim mod pack, if you might be interested, I highly recommend it:

Hardcore gamers play Hillsfar (1989), and Pool of Radience (1988)... like it ain't no thang...


I THINK I still have POR(, and MAYBE Hillsfar) 5.24" floppys, IN BOX (NOT new), BUT you can get them on abandon-ware rings...!

POR was the shiz-nitz!

Ran siege flawlessly.
Arma not so much!
The ram I intended to install was not the right size, apparently I have an itx motherboard so i need these small memory sticks, not the big whoppers my friend brought over lol.

The 8gb it came with was not sufficient!

I'd be curious to know how that affects Arma 3 performance. I have a GTX 1650 Super, about the same as yours, but I haven't had any performance issues.

It was advertised with a gtx 1650, but when I checked on the nvidia software it indicates that the installed graphics card is actually a gtx 1650 super.
Im also going to change out the hdd to an ssd soon.

At some point I may rip the components out and install them into a bigger case so that I can have more room.
