Unique build, don't seen Linux that often. Only suggestion would be to clean up the cable management a bit. Might also recommend getting a board or something to set it on if you are going to keep it on the floor. Carpet is probably starving the PSU for air, which is not a good thing

Thanks. :) Yeah, I plan on cleaning up the cables once I get a more permanent living situation figured out. and I'll look into getting something to set it on. Thanks for the suggestions!

Very good parts choice! Even the peripherals are really good

Isnt that bad for the PSU, sitting on the carpet like that?

Yeah probably starving the power supply for air

Yeah, probably is. I just don't have anywhere else to put it. Maybe I'll try to find a small plastic mat to put under it.

Lol, xD well, it wouldn't be starving for air anymore, that's for sure. :P

Do you have to run a VM to play most games?

Nope. :) Over 80% of my Steam Library is on Linux natively. Sure, I can't play all the latest AAA titles, but honestly, most of those are over franchised and overrated for me anyways.

Nice. I've been interested in converting to linux, but I've wary about gaming on a VM eating up resources

It mostly depends on the games you play. :) Personally, I play a lot of indie games, and Linux has plenty of those. But if you're the type of person who always plays the latest Far Cry, or Assasin's Creed, then Linux might not be for you. But one of the great things about Linux is that it's free. :) Try it out on a separate partition, and if it works for you, great! :) If not, you can always delete it.

I'm like 1off from mainstream. Elder scrolls and forza are as mainstream as I get, not a big fan of press-e-to-play-the-whole-game games like assassins creed

Well, I'm not for sure on Forza, but most of the elder scrolls games work well with WINE. :) If you don't know what that is, it's essentially a translation layer that converts windows system calls to a format that Linux can understand. It's not the same as an emulator, and actually offers pretty decent performance.

Thanks. :) It's been pretty decent. Not much to say about it honestly though. To me, a case is more about personal preference.

lol, haven't used winblows for a couple years now. :) Last time I used it, it rebooted itself in the middle of my game, so it could apply some stupid update. That was before the 10 nonsense was even a thing too.

Some OS fanboy appears to have downvoted you and not gotten the gist of your joke. Allow me to correct that.

No I knew you were kidding but when I saw your comment someone had already downvoted you, apparently someone either didnt get the joke or was being a turd.
