The steam survey represents your typical gamer. TPU like many other forums is full of enthusiasts so the hardware would be a notch or two above average.

After all if I went onto a car enthusiast web site, I might think BMW and Audi sports cars sell more then Toyota and Ford family SUVs and sedans.
Yea sometimes I'm not sure what I'm doing here as I'm not an enthusiast by TPU 'standards'.:oops:

Pretty much always had budget or entry mid range systems at best and I have no interest in ocing and I'm totally fine with less than 60 fps gaming on not all maxed out settings.

I'm just interested in tech and gaming stuff like most ppl here I guess + I got kinda tired of the 'general' tech communities/forums in my country with their attitude so to say.

I was poking fun at how I actually think about these things.

High fps tiny res gaming is like an oxymoron.
For competitive i think it makes sense. They play so fast/focused that it's impossible to take in the eye candy anyways. I can see how it can be fun but not my thing.

You can compare two different things on a quantitative level but not qualitative level when it's two different opinions of equal value. After all you can say case A is better then case B. I can counter and say you are absolutely wrong. Case B is bigger, cheaper, holds more drives, has better airflow etc etc., but the second you say you just like the looks of case A better then B so that's why you like it better then the argument is over.

That's the ONLY place it makes sense. However its the argument that gets ballyhooed around like its the goal for everyone, anyone, ever that gets to me.

the only thing that doesnt match up with the results so far is my gfx....RX 480 was great 2 years ago but now that im at 1440P with a R7 2700 and 16GB of ram, my gfx is my systems weak point. CAD $ doesnt help either as 5700 or XT starts at $424 for ref 5700 and close to $600 for XT AIB versions. I will save up and upgrade next year, will settle for a Vega 64 even :)
