@katsuo every manufacturer has horror stories at some point. I have never had a high end board. It’s far too good for my little i3 in it! Haha I’m most likely going to swap it out for an updated gaming rig. The wife has already given me approval to do custom cables and a new case within a reasonable price range.
Well, I didn’t have any issues myself, but I am used to action RPGs by now. You should try the tutorial of FFXV, it’s really useful for newcomers! As far as tips go, try to utilize Warp Strikes as Katsuo said (Triangle) It’s the most useful mechanic!
