Agreed! It does look great and a few friends are playing it and say it's good too.

I still want Rise of the Tomb Raider first, but I think Doom will be next after it. I had the first one in Windows 95. It came with my old Gravis GamePad.

I know once I get Doom, my older brother will be bugging me to play it.

You can't blame him.. :)

No, I sure can't. Then he'll realize I have Batman: Arkham Knight and want to drive the Batmobile.

Apparently while I was doing my previous post, the motherboard was having it's arrivel scan done at Newegg according to Package Tracker. I guess it arrived a day early there.

I'm curious how all my games are going to look and run on the new pc, once I get the new video card for it.

Well the new card has to be at least 25% faster to be able to notice any difference apparently.

Definite good news. I guess that means they'll be mailing me the new one sometime after next Wednesday. I guess I'll get it around the 20th.

It should be and I'm going for the 8GB one. I'll be able to put $50.00-$75.00 aside next month for it, so I'll definitely get a RX 480 8GB in August. September will most likely be fan month for me. Probably the Bitfenix Spectre Pro red led's. 2 200mm and 4 140mm's.
In October, I'll probably look into that new Intel Webcam for Windows Hello.

It's gonna be bright inside that case.. :)

Probably.

OK, I found the webcam to get. I couldn't find the Intel one, not even on Intel's site. I found one that Creative Labs makes that will work with Hello. It's probably cheaper than the Intel one anyway. BlasterX Senz3D

One thing I need to do when I have the new pc up & running is install my Cyberlink Media Suite. I then need to see if I can reconvert my videos with MediaEspresso and have them do them in 2560x100 this time, instead of 1920x1080.

I think a few of them were converted to 1280x720. Every time I reinstall MediaEspresso, I always use the Xbox option in it, but I always forget I can set it higher than the default 1280x720.
Reconverting all of them will easily take a day when I do it.
I've got over 100 video folders and a few of them have 3-15 videos in them.

Wow lot's of work then...

Sure is. I guess that's what I get for having all my dvd's and blu-ray's on my pc. That and all the full concert's, I've downloaded from YouTube.
If my tv were ever to get cutoff, I could probably go a month, without watching the same thing twice.

I may get to find that one out soon. Bright House was sold to Charter Communications in my area recently.
I haven't heard any good reviews on them, so far.
I can say my internet has already gone out twice under them.
