New Computer!

So, last week I constructed a new computer. It’s… a tad powerful. Suffice to say I was rather excited for the arrival of all of the components- a GTX 1080, i5 6600k, 32GB of InsaneX Ram… The Ninjabeast III went together surprisingly quickly- with the exception of the secondary hard drive everything worked on my first attempt, which is lovely to see. With the computer 95% functional, I got it running Doom last night with maximum settings. It didn’t even blink at the heavy load; it’s incredible.
The Ninjabeast was originally put together in 2010, and has been upgraded and tinkered with almost constantly since. This is a major upgrade, but even so it still contains a few hard drives and cables from that first incarnation. The spare bits leftover from the upgrade have now formed a second computer called the Dragon, which my partner uses so that we can play together.
Looking forward to playing Civilization VI along with many other games on the latest incarnation of the ‘beast.
