I got that same email, and I'm in (almost) the same boat as you are.jztemple2 wrote: ↑Wed Sep 25, 2019 1:30 pmI got an email from Falcon Northwest today, notifying me of their Talon 20th anniversary sale, in that they have been offering the Talon model for twenty years. Actually it isn't a sale in the sense that anything is discounted, after all this is Falcon NW . However, they have a new version of the Talon chassis with extra bells and whistles.
But they are a victim of their own build quality. I got a Talon back in early 2014 and aside from a video card upgrade the machine still runs fine, upgraded to Win10 OK and still can run the latest games. Maybe on the Talon's 25th anniversary...
By the way, I'm surprised to find that their monster Mach V is listed as "Sold Out". I'm wondering if they are planning to discontinue that model since it is a full size tower. My first Falcon was a Mach V back in 2002 and while I've stripped the guts I still use it as a side table
I'm still using the Talon that I bought in January 2014. I don't think I've even updated the video card (still have a GTX 780). It still runs everything I care to run.
I figure I might buy a new machine for either MS Flight Sim 2020, or for Cyberpunk 2077. One of those is almost certain to require more than a new video card for me to run at high quality.
I also previously had a Mach V (which arrived at my home on 9/10/2001) and another Talon (April 2005).
