I always build my own pc's. Every few years I do a heart transplant, ie. mb+cpu+mem replacement. I'm still running dual core, but I also always buy top shelf parts when I do an upgrade, so she still purrs like a kitten. I'm about due for a new graphics card however.
I have a copy of Fary Cry 4 that came with a Samsung SSD I bought. I've never played it however. I need to make a new windows partition first, and I just haven't found the motivation to do so. Renpy works just fine on linux.
