i might actually get a new video card this year!
Same. I'm feeling it. The first decent deal I see on an RTX card (AFTER I get my first paycheck from new job, obviously), it's on.
OTOH, I'm shocked at how well my old GeForce 760 is holding up considering I upgraded my monitor to a 32" 2560x1440 not too long ago. AND considering I have what I assume to be an unusual computer gaming...rule: play it on max gfx settings (and native monitor res) or not at all! (bitches!)
This is precisely when having an absurd backlog of fantastic old games that any decent gamer would have played and completed long ago shows its advantage. There have been only a few games I tried to play with this particular monitor and gfx card combo where I immediately uninstalled due to chop (to be re-installed whenever I could buy a decent card).
I bought the recent Humble Bundle monthly deal that someone here mentioned, which contained Mass Effect Legendary edition, and was shocked to find out I could play that with no issues whatsoever! WTF. Maybe as you get into 2 and I guess especially 3, that will not be the case. Shocked. Pleased. I'm shleased. Pleaked?
