Restarted reading articles and stuff, thanks for all your comments, keep them coming.

That Pc you pointed out seems perfect for 1080p which is what I am targeting. My only concern would be the 1060 over a 1070, any opinion ? Reviews are not too good either..


The latest review seems to be a red flag. According to the nVidia website, the Geforce GTX 1060 requires a 400W PSU and they have a 300W listed in the specs so yeah I would expect it to have issues performing.

Getting closer to a decision on this. Stay tuned :lol:

There was no escape, I did get back into it and read many articles and reviews.

Forgot to post back here.

Received the new pc a couple of weeks ago. Already have more games than time ...

My son and I are loving it ! He already got invited to a boot camp to join a Rainbow 6 team :shock: Kids are unbelievable...

Did not go full high-end but we are running everything over 60 fps on ultra settings so we are happy. Only have a 60Hz 1080p monitor and we feel that it is way enough for our skills :D
