My computer is about 4 years old, still runs Warhammer Total War on High though.

 

i5 3570k

Radeon HD7850 2GB

16GB RAM

5TB of HD space, a 250 GB SSD.

 

Also got a 750W Strider Gold PSU, ASRock z77 Extreme4 motherboard and an aftermarket CPU cooler (hyper 212 EVO).

 

I've been thinking about an upgrade, but really the only thing I could justify is a new GPU, my CPU still runs everything perfectly fine (most games aren't bottle-necked by CPUs and can't utilise multiple cores anyway).

Atari 2000 or when I'm feeling risky, C64. Better?

 

Oldest bit I have laying around is a ColecoVision. I wasn't actually around for it though so most of my retro games are in the 16-bit era.

 

I have somewhere around 300+ Sega Genesis cartridges laying around?

Yea I really liked 7 but got used to vista from my laptop. I really don't even notice the differences between 10 and vista other than how you have to go about some things system wise.

8GB is more than sufficient. You don't need more. Games stating that they require more is bullshit.

I just like to multitask a lot and having JNGP and wc3 running the same time as some steam game while also listening to music or streaming is less than ideal. My laptop is only powerful enough to run wc3 or youtube these days.

I am not sure how much RAM JNGP eats, but generally speaking 8 GB is more than enough to run a game which is over 10 years old, music or a stream (or both) and another steam game. It's probably your CPU that causes problems. Your GPU isn't bad either, but since it's a laptop these GPUs are usually much worse than the desktop PC version. But that's actually impossible to barely run YT & WC3 with that rig. Something must be wrong with your PC overall.

Oh no those specs posted were for my desktop. GPU is a msi radeon R9 380. Nicest thing in the computer :D. I think I have bottleneck issues with my CPU but I don't ever notice it much. JNGP runs slow for me because of the map I'm working on. I can run/edit other maps and navigate them much much quicker. I can't get more than 40-60 fps while playing wc3 whereas in csgo I am getting upwards of 300fps.

 

My laptop has an AMD A10 processor and it gets me by well enough for less resource intensive things.

Oh, I see. Though you said R9 380 above, which makes quite the difference! :P

And yea I can see how working on Alternate Future is like opening Photoshop.

You can upgrade to the 7700k in a month or that 6C/12T in 2018 with a drop in upgrade. Ram could be upped to DDR4-3200 CAS14 or DDR4-3600 CAS15 for about 10% better performance.
