Today is Maybe the Day

EXCITED! Today is the day, maybe… That my new PC build gets here and as mentioned in a previous post, I am pretty excited about it all. I need to move a chunk of gear about. I am pretty sure that for now I need to downsize to just two monitors (1st World problems eh?) but I think that may be for the best anyway. Do you use three monitors? I find my 3rd is turned off bar streaming times so its essentially wasted space for 90% of the time. I will need to buy a new 2k monitor so I have two of the same but I can ‘manage’ until then.

Sometime next year I will be grabbing a 1TB gen 4 SSD to fit in the ‘lightning’ slot. I need a new mouse… NEVER touching Steel Series again for cosmetic reasons… but as of today I am boosted heavily over my current gaming laptop setup. Don’t get me wrong, it did well but the heat issues caused by the newer top 2% games are now something I am tired of. So, you want some specs?

*MSI B550 Gaming Plus

*Ryzen 7 3700X

*32 GB 3200

*WD Blue SN550 1TB NVMe M.2 SSD

*Corsair TX550M, 550W PSU


*Gainward GeForce RTX 2060 Ghost

*Phanteks Eclipse P400A RGB Black

Its a RGB Neon tripping super upgradable DISCO loving hunk that has room for the latest AMD CPU next year and of course that tasty RTX 3070 when they are finally in stock at normal prices. All in all, very happy, very excited. Did I mention I am excited?

Emma has also been treated to a new PC for Christmas. Almost the same specs as mine but she went even better Ryzen CPU and some seriously tasty RAM. Had a lot of fun last night with her whilst we ate cake and built hers. Sadly the PSU on hers is faulty out of the box so that has to go back but she will be up and running soon I am sure. The cake was needed to cheer us both up when we realised it was broken. Cake is god tier.

To top yesterday off I recieved my Terrys Chocolate Orange Whites in the mail from the UK. Any day with a new PC, cake and a chocolate orange is a good day.
