Is that a real Gibson I spot hiding behind your left speaker?

Yep, it's a 1985 standard.

Here's a family photo!

How are you liking the 2500k? I was thinking of doing a budget build for my son using the 2500k.

@Chablo Buy an old Dell Optiplex System and throw a GTX 1050 Ti Low Profile card and boom, you have an entry level gaming PC.

I did it with a Dell Optiplex 9010.

i7-3770 / 16GB DDR3 / 500GB HDD / GTX 1050 Ti 4GB LP Card.

Optiplex was $172 on ebay plus a $179.99 GTX 1050 Ti.

$351 for a Entry level gaming PC...cheaper than most consoles.

That's exactly what I plan on doing haha. It's going to be a minecraft machine so just thinking of grabbing a budget RX gpu like a 550 4gb or 560.

I'm running the Ryzen 3 1300X, B350 Gaming PRO, G.Skill Ripjaws V Series 16GB and a EVGA 1060 6GB. Built it last year and it's still running strong.

I have always run AMD processors, I love them. Plus I didn't have a lot of money to spend so, at $205 total, this was a bargain for me.

I've used both and don't see any difference between the two except the price.

The processors I've had that I can remember:
1. AMD Athlon 64 X2 5600+
2. Intel Core i3-2100
3. Intel Core i7-4770K
4. AMD Ryzen 1700

I am currently on Ryzen and this has been the best out of all 4. (talking about price and performance) I am planning on upgrading to Ryzen 3700/X/3900X when they come out. Will see which one when the benchmarks land.

I dont have a setup right now cause i'm packing up to move and will be still moving around a lot for the next month or two, so using just a laptop for the timebeing.
Have a question though for everyone that has a gaming chair - are they as comfortable as their price implies? like for sitting at hours upon end everyday? i have a shit office chair atm and looking to get a new one, wondering if itd be worth getting a gaming chair or just a better more comfortable office chair that doesnt hurt after sitting in it too long.

They are 100% a marketing fad for rich people or poor people that have no idea how to manage their money. Buy a nice chair from IKEA that will last you 5+ years.

As im working from home and sitting in front of computer for countless hours every day - I opted for nice gaming chair for around 500 dollars. It is good if you care about your back health as you can set pretty much anything on it (depends on the model of course). I've got Maxnomic Commander after few months of scouting the market.

I had problems with back but thankfully thats all gone. Its really comfortable and much healthier than plain office chairs. 95% of IKEA products are shit btw.

Edit: My chair is not gaming - its office/home office chair. But its picked precisely to fit me. I definitely advise to scout the market and pick what you like and what fits you.

I can't imagine buying a $500 "gaming" chair as a supplement for back problems.

Good for you that you dont have back problems.

That wasn't the intent of my post whatsoever. Surely there are better alternatives for whatever injury or disease you have other than paying five hundred dollars for a videogame chair?

It probably depens on country but the chairs for that starts for around 700 dollars here and thats just for the cheapest models. So I used this option instead.

I bought IKEA Markus 2 weeks ago and can only recommend it. The taller the person, the better. Was looking at gaming chairs like DXRacer, but in my opinion they cost too much. You pay for the brand just like for Apple products.

Lumbar support is pretty damn nice, have you ever sat in one? I know it would do me a world of good but likewise I can't justify the money right now.
