The year is 2003 and my OC’d Athlon XP/5900 ultra rig was tearing though the latest games like Vice City, Splinter Cell, and Max Payne 2. I was also getting enjoyment from being kicked off of counter strike servers after being accused of hacking. My cs clan was awesome and I loved practicing and playing in ogl matches. I spent hours upon hours tweaking every last fps out of that rig and Guru3D was my go to for everything. Well life, kids, and other responsibilities got in between me and pc building/gaming and sadly my rig eventually became an internet browser and was finally retired to the closet when windows stopped supporting WinXP in 2012 Fast forward to the present and my teenage boys are sick of hearing me talk about the good ‘ole days of PC gaming and how 120gb hard drive was a lot of storage . They kept pressing me to drag out the old tower and getting it updated so they can play CSGO and Fortnite. So I call an old friend and he tells me he’s got an MSI 970 motherboard with an FX6300 and 8gb of DDR3 sitting in his closet and says I can have it for free. So I throw it all together with an R9 380 I found on CL for cheap and it works suprisingly well on mid range settings. Problem is now I’ve got the bug again... I want to tweak every last ounce out of it as I learn all about the newest gear and plan to build a brand new rig. So I start digging around the web and what do you know, my search brings me here. It’s like seeing an old girlfriend So my question is are there any other old timers like myself still hanging around here or am I intruding on a new generation of gamers and pc builders?
