Same here i spent so many years on the xbox 360 as most of my friends had them so it was easier to follow suit than convert them all to pc....rolleyes.gif now the xbone and ps4 as struggling to play modern games at even 1080p im back onboard with pc gaming as my main setup and xbone just for fifa and exclusives. luckily as i do photography and editing my pc has always been 'half decent' i just needed to upgrade the graphics card thumb.gif

I had a 360 and just decided I needed something I could tinker with and evolve, so when I saw water cooling guides and the likes I thought I would make the change. I was blown away by how much better games look on PC so never looked back. The wife's not to happy with the cost though:) Same situation as you though all my mates are on xbone.

Those were the daze.....my 486 DX4 100 with 16 meg RAM....I was so proud. RAM back then was $40 a meg. That system, back then, overclocked, whooped anything made by intel, to include the first generation of 'Pentium's'......thanx for the flashback. thumb.gif

Yeah, running at 20 mhz seemed the business and a 100 Meg HDD. Shows how far things have come, lol.
