Aaaaand it's gone. But it's OK and I have a new friend and a new game to play.
Okay so where do I start? How about starting by saying I sold my expensive components because I feel kinda bad that I spent so much money on my PC, and while it was awesome, bills and debts kinda do come first. That, and my mum really wanted a wooden floor in the hall and living/dining room (the cats brutalise the carpet >_>). So there it is.
I loved the Ryzen 9 3950X, don't get me wrong. Awesome CPU, it's just I made a bit of a midjudgement buying it. While it does speed up Adobe Premiere Rush and Eyesight (a lot) it wasn't worth it to me, since I usually leave my PC running and go nap or play with my cats. It makes really no difference long term, especially since nothing I do is time-sensitive. £700 is a lot of money that right now I feel is better spent elsewhere. Someone else will benefit a lot more from the 16 cores (via eBay) than me.
Oh, so what are you using now, Sash?
Ryzen 5 2600X and a budget B450 motherboard, of the ASUS PRIME-A variety. I sold pretty much everything else. As far as gaming goes, I'd like to point this post out and re-iterate it, lol. I think you get the message. So rather than beat that dead horse...
YOU HAVE A NEW FRIEND?
Yeah! Wait, I'm talking to myself again. Anyway, this person contacted me on my website after reading my blog. And while I am anxious at first, they are really friendly and pleasant to talk to, and I enjoy chatting to them about tech and games. Oh, they also bought me a game. And that game is Deep Rock Galactic.
I'll start by saying that this game is pretty damned awesome, and is most likely going to steal a lot of time away from Warframe, but that's okay because then both experiences will be more refreshing - because I'll be less prone to burn out.
So I am going to be doing a lot of gameplay videos on DRG, along with my usual ones on Warframe and Fallout 76.
So here's a shout out to my new friend. Thanks for wanting to chat to me, and being very generous. I appreciate it :>
