Sorry for poor quality, took this from my phone.

Behold my complete Multi-Platform Deity setup that I have affectionately dubbed "The Furnace". My PC is displayed in front of the desk, my PS4 above and to the right, with a PS2 behind the monitor. If you're wondering where the PS3 is, it's currently de-commissioned and in mothball. The PC is a second hand purchase and has cost me just over $810-US...$550 for the machine and right at $260 on upgrading the GPU.

Current specifications:

Motherboard: MSI 760GMA-P34(FX) Micro ATX AM3+
CPU: AMD FX-6300 3.5GHz 6-Core Processor
Memory: ADATA XPG Gaming Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3-1600 (still can't run two tabs on Chrome, jk. :lol: )
Storage: Toshiba 2TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive + 1x Toshiba Canvio Slim 1TB USB 3.0 External HDD
GPU: Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1060 6GB 6GB Mini ITX
Sound Card: 404 Not Found (not necessary, really)
Power Supply (current): Apex AL-A350ATX 350W
Power Supply (planned): Corsair CXM 450W 80+ Bronze Certified Semi-Modular ATX
Monitor: Asus VS228H-P 21.5" 1920x1080 @ 60Hz
Mouse: Razer Naga Chroma
Keyboard: Customized, uncertain of Manufacturer
Case: iBuypower ARC 647 CASE ATX Mid Tower
OS: Windows 10 Home (pre-installed, so don't give me any lip)

This monster will run just about any game on Ultra settings and give between 40-60 FPS depending on action levels and/or terrain features in game.
