That's why I went with Stadia for this game. After trying it at my brothers house for like 8 months.

Getting a decent gaming rig has never been cheaper - like seriously, I think you can get a full setup for like 600 USD that’s actually performing really well

Yep... I just need to start reading up and figuring out what I want for performance. Also where the heck I'll put it around my desk which is rather full

<@U4P0WL954> just don’t go into small form-factor hell 😂 I went down that route a couple of years ago because I wanted something small and easy to hide. It is not worth it

Just finished a mini itx build, but more for general use with parts I picked up on sale over the past year and a bit. Looks like AMD is the way to go these days. Agree with @vrklgn. Originally bought the case to do a Sophos build but my needs changed

I wanted to play YBA recently and wanted a PC that could handle the game and they helped alot when I went into the YBA Discord servers because they are experts. Anyways, if you want to build a PC for gaming, what game are you going to be running? I might suggest specs based on that and yiour budget.
