All I can say is that I get motion sickness at under 45 fps. Gaming above that simply doesn’t trigger it. Good read… factual which is a refreshing change.

RE: A wild Noctua NH-D9L appears!
Many thanks to @Sgt_T8ie for his generosity and good fortune filtering down. This is one beautiful cooler. Please excuse the cable management, but moving from a ASRock Z97E6 with its blue theme to a white theme doesn’t quite work, hence the shambles and later pulling out the 6 pin and 24 pin cables for the pics.
The issue I had with the Z97 was that m.2 PCIE3x4 slot shared lanes with the GPU and the other m.2 slot ran 3 times slower. Was still mighty, but it was a compromise that bugged me. Left GPU out to visualise the m.2 that shares lanes with GPU.
The Z170 platform offers no compromise between m.2 and GPU performance. Both can go at full tilt. Trying to mount cooler with air flow through back of the case wass challenging and a new compromise and low profile RAM is highly recommended and the new shrouds over I/O ports was a worse option.
The best and a clear solution was to vent upward.
Desks are proudly made from recycling pallets and the setup is a slow work in progress. It will get prettier as I go along (cable management and monitors).
RE: Costs: Console Vs. PC
@ButtStallion It is easier. But it’s also 400 bucks more expensive. Think about that
More to my point is that the PC is $400 buck more, but over the lifespan off the console (before next gen & yes you don’t need to upgrade) which could be 7 years, it would be easy to spend more on a console. Only caveat here is that you pick up games for $10, so yet again my point falls over.
Costs: Console Vs. PC
Lessons learnt and why I game on a PC now. So Daniel (my 5 year old son) bugged me to setup my PS3. Being Xmas, I did and quickly realised I had no games to play. Last week I took him to EB Games to buy a Lego Game, second hand as he is only 5 (yeah cheap dad). Saw they had a 2 for 1 deal and bought two Lego games for NZD24 and then bought a relatively newer one for NZD48. I did not think too much of it, as it was for the boy and the problem solving aspect of the games are OK. Today bundle stars had a promotion for 3 for USD10 (NZD 14.50) for Lego games. So I bought 3 more, 3 of them that can be selected are the newest versions.
Moral of the story, yes a PC cost more to build, but this single console games purchase has probably costed me more than my entire Steam catalogue, if I subtract Borderlands 2, which the only game I believe I paid full fare for.
Let the vitriol flow.
RE: Good friends are hard to find.
Let me know how that is. I love a good racing game.
Did the 20gb DL and install and naturally had a quick look in (XBOX 360 controller). Started career with Karting and did the first season on novice (Way too low). One race I clipped a barrier through a sweep, spun out and still no one in site to drive past.
General first impression, even the easy go kart had moments of instability where skill is required. So a very good simulator is my first impression. Getting offline on grass causing car to twitch, requiring careful input (second box ticked).
The braking zone guides, seems to be a recommendation and not lore, compared versus Forza 2, where it was.
Believe I will spend a good deal of time on this. Reminds me of DIRT Rally, but for track racing, I.e. will be surprisingly difficult, requiring over realistic skill set. Very good as a result of the challenge.
Bring on the Bathurst and Nordschleife.
