    The 8700k and 1080ti are still a dope combo in 2019 if you dont care about RT. Use linux, not windows. Linus is an idiot

          I just upgraded from my 2013 PC. I didn't realise how old it was. Neither how old I am. I saw that Titanfall 2 was released 4 years ago and i still think it was last year... Damn....

            Wow, skipped right over the processor I just upgraded from, the i7-5820k. That one had DDR4 support a year before the 6700, quad channel memory, NVMe support, less expensive, and has a better Passmark rating than the 6700.

                        Man I wish you would have set up to play one of the new 2019 games or benchmarks in split screen side by side with the 2009 PC... if you could mash the graphics down hard enough to get it to run.

                          Tbh just looking at ONLY THE PAST 10 YEARS, hardware and games has progressed so fucking much.
                          Just imagine what we’ll get in another 10 years.

                                            Not much difference over the years. Especially in this second part. The difference between 1999 and 2009 was much bigger. Or 1989 and 1999 that went from 2d to 3d games.

                                              gta v was and is an amazing game. at the time i was rocking a g3258 and gtx 750 Ti and i could play gta v at 1080p with a bit of detail and still get playable frame rates.

                                                                              I was confused about power connections so many youtube videos helped me especially yours but so many have different instructions on cpu power connecting. As i understand it on this motherboard there are 2 cpu power a 4 pin on the top left and an 8 pin on the right side, i was worried about getting it wrong so i called asrock support and was told just to use the 8 pin which i did and it seems to work fine but i will be using this for business video editing in Resolve and photo editing printing mostly in affinity photo and capture one some other graphic programs.

                                                                              My question is do i need that left 4 pin cpu power connected or not and why or why not, I only one 1 gpu but will be adding 2 more as needed and the bench I ran after installing windows and driver updates put it at 65%. with everything on auto in bios.

                                                                              Speed is important but I want stability over speed spending hours editing and loose anything is no fun... also at what number of gpus do i need to add the 4 pin power to the bottom left side, thanks for your time and for all that take the time to educate me and for all youtubers that take the time to share their knowledge

I think these gaming PC specs most likely would be close to top end from 2016, can still handle new games today.

Do you compare it to sth that mocaped everyting? You cannot mocap hundreds of hours. Doing it all in engine is much more impressive. All the subltle movements of eyebrows, lower eyelids, chicks, lip movment, head movents. No other game since then made me think "wow that was some good facial expressions".
