hard core simulation = PC domination ....fly sims- military sims - racing sims ...this is really the only thing I care about anymore, but yeah I remember when PC had more focus and consoles were lucky to get those great games made for PC

Windows xp was great, still have a few PCs around the workplace still deployed on xp that are running older CNC machines...our workstations are 80% windows 10 and 20% windows 7 now in 2019

if you are into racing games I would get an 21:9 ultrawide monitor, which I also find nice for fp shooters...very immersive I have an LG 29" 2560 x 1080p ips 75hz

the new bf games dont appeal to me, BF2 was the peak and I also like BFBC2 and still play it. The series strayed from what set it apart from everyone else and feels cheap. I now hangout mostly on arma 3 , squad

I have a 29" ultrawide but its flat, not curved. I looked at the curved monitors but didnt pull the trigger on one, they looked ok though ....for work related stuff I prefer 16:9, but 21:9 gaming is more immersive

I do IT in the corporate world and we have a few 10+ year old dell workstations that run 24-7-365 on battery backups , amazing considering if you ever crack open a dell they use mid tier bare bones motherboards and power supplies to save costs ....our last set of servers ran for 13 years non stop, redundant power supplies and raid 10 quick release drives
