    I am a long time ultima fan and played UO for over a decade. found out about this game about a week ago, 2 days later i donated and started testing, and the game has inspired me to buy a new gaming pc that should be here in a couple weeks :D

    i know it doesnt have much to do with the game but i am excited bout the game and the new pc and wanted to share lol

    Just an update. ordered the new pc this morning. i got an X99 motherboard i7-5820k processor with 8GB DDR4 2133 and the R9 270 gfx card with a 120GB SSD for windows and SoTA and 1TB HDD for everything else.

    i know i dont need more than 4 cores for gaming, the ram could be faster and have more of it, the gfx card will need upgraded and probably the SSD but i got a good deal and this is all i could afford at the moment and it should still be pretty fast lol

    Hello Dismayven,

    Sounds like you got a good deal there. I have been keeping an eye on those solid state drives. I will be replacing my WD 7200's soon enough with these.


    Regards,

    If you would, once you get all set up, let us know if you notice a significant difference using the SSD? I am happy with the speed I have now, and afraid to spend the money on something I may not notice that great a difference.

    I've had excellent results with using an SSD exclusively for my OS. Definitely the way to go at the moment.
