So, I’m turning 30 this weekend. Crazy. I’ve decided to treat myself by building an awesome budget gaming PC. I haven’t built a PC since the P4 days.
- Intel Haswell Core i5 3.2Ghz Quad Core
- 4GB Memory (upgrading to 8GB next paycheck)
- 120GB SSD
- ASUS B85M-G Motherboard (really nice!)
- NXXT Case (BEAUTIFUL CASE! Very impressed with it)
- Thermaltake 600W PSU (Have to RMA it. It’s acting up, and not giving the proper voltage)
- Radeon R9 270 GPU.
All in all I spent about $600 on this machine. I’m getting 200FPS in Team Fortress 2, and I’m currently waiting for some new games to download. Happy Birthday to Me!
If anybody is on Steam, I made a PiMAME group. Let’s get some TF2 games going 🙂
In other news, since the new menu system is taking longer than expected, I’m going to do one more 0.7 PiMAME release. It’s going to be upgrading to the new Raspbian version, and including some much needed functions to the console menu (joystick support, and favorites).
Look for that update this week!
