#3468 PC Build Thread in Hardware

I'm running into hardware issues with my current build from 2013, so since the parts are 6 years old I figure I better start from scratch. I have a soft $1000 budget and would rather buy parts now (within this month) than later so my team can actually scrim.

The worst frames I ever get in TF2 are 90 in some pubs so I'd prefer if this new PC had any form of FPS boost in comparison at all so I can always have 3 digit FPS. I'm very used to not being able to stream without dropping a lot of frames, and only really getting to play games like GTA/Rust/Borderlands/Deus Ex/Witcher ect on all low settings without seeing serious performance issues. If any of this got to change for the better with a new build that'd be great, but if my budget only allows for this to remain the status quo then I can live with that. The most stressful thing that the PC will probably have to take is Cyberpunk I would imagine. I can play that on low too if needed but something higher would be nice. I prefer not to overclock but will if deemed necessary

I had a friend make a partial build. (missing GPU/harddrive/windows) but anyone that's helping me feel free to build your own thing if you see something better.

Edit: I forgot to mention I can reuse the harddrive/PSU/case short term if it fits with the build and softens the budget, and replace the old parts sometime in 2020 when I have more money. Bear also has an old GTX 760 he can send me at break if using that for a GPU to save extra money (in general or to put towards other parts) is the play.

#1362 PugChamp in Projects
PeteI really don't know where the negative mentality for elo came from? I guess it was because people want pugs to be for fun and not playing for the win, but having some dude just not try on your team isn't fun when the rest of you wanna win

The lessened throwing and greater incentive to play came with more stalemates and an increased amount of killed drafts. Also pugs usually get harder later into the evening, so depending on when you play it's very easy to obtain an inaccurate ELO.

#6 A follow up on opinion articles in News
articleTopics will be restricted to articles that “inform on topics and/or foster relevant discussion that can improve the competitive TF2 community."

This will prob be the most important thing. Maybe I'm wrong, but I don't think a lot of people will care about "I feel x about y because of z" unless they have a unique or interesting perspective on the information stated. If it's just a random opinion from someone who happens to be a writer, then more people will just not read it. Which is fine I guess, but obviously not the goal.

Rebitei want the underdogs to win. i don't know who the underdogs are but i want them to win

Chaos Esports Club will probably get a lot of praise just because people will want to see Matumbaman do well after getting kicked from Liquid so close to the tournament. Not expected to go very far though.

Past that, you'd be hoping for Fnatic/NiP/TNC squeezing their way into top 6 and beyond I guess.

#8 TI9 in e-Sports

If anyone thought the Chinese fans were harsh on their teams when they don't happen to win in TI grands, imagine how bad its gonna be if that happens on home soil. Worse if they miss finals completely this year (decent chance VG or maybe LGD get there though).

#23 Unveiling NACL in TF2 General Discussion
bearodactylNot gonna lie, the fact that RGL starts so early is absolutely abysmal planning on their part. No idea how invite teams are going to actually get their rosters figured out as it's right after grand finals and there won't even be time to try people out.

This is a really important point; multiple playoff Open/IM/Invite teams are gonna get fucked when they have 0 time to do tryouts for people shuffling in and out of teams. I understand a short off season is a side effect of not wanting a fall season to run through the winter holidays, but how does anyone honestly expect a 1 day off season to work when for years ESEA has usually given us more and we still pray for a fucking extension.

Regardless of which league ends up being "better", RGL is flat out not going to be an option for a lot of teams, even if they wanted it to be. The creation of this league is by no means "too late" in my eyes.

#90 Announcing RGL.gg Sixes - Season 1 in TF2 General Discussion
Jarrett000whatever league mimics ESEA the most would probably get the most traffic, I would imagine. The more change all at once you throw at someone, the more turned off they'll be to the idea.

I still believe this is true and it makes me kind of curious why it would be decided that this season, of all seasons, would be the perfect time to implement not 1, but 2 new maps into the rotation.

As much as people might dislike badlands and granary, with all of the other changes people have to adjust to with joining a new league, I'm sure at least some would rather have things like this stay the same for the short term. How many? Well, nobody really knows, and that's kind of an issue.

The invite meetings in the past have been heavily criticized not for having the final say in decisions, but not taking the public majority into account at all when making them. For the past year or two attending these meetings I've tried to push for more public posts on the forums so tri can reference what the community wants when the captains in the discord debate about which decision is better.

What I find interesting is with the regular season between the top and bottom of the league being different (invite and advanced can p/b and ban what they don't like, everyone else is back to assigned maps per week), it doesn't appear the lower half was inquired at all about what they would want (please correct me if I'm wrong). That's at least 50% of your potential player base.

I would rather have top players making the final decision like normal yes, but if you want to introduce x, and it turns out 200 players didn't want x, it's not good when we're at a point where everyone's trying to find a new home, and nobody is obligated to commit to anywhere. It just doesn't seem like a good move to me.

#19 Leagues meet to discuss future of North American TF2 in News

Fingers crossed for the NA community not to slightly fracture because people have different ideas on which league will be "better". Remember when part of ESEA bled off to CEVO (albeit for different reasons)? Smaller sized divs (because less players) suck, no matter where you're playing.

mustardoverlordI just hope at least one of the leagues that emerges from this is the "normal" one- no experimental whitelist, no 20 new maps at a time, no overly hands-on admins, just a regular-ass league

if that league exists I guarantee you it wins (barring massive discrepancies in prize pool or whatever)

+1, whatever league mimics ESEA the most would probably get the most traffic, I would imagine. The more change all at once you throw at someone, the more turned off they'll be to the idea.
