Most of you know me as Bulletstorm65, I am a 50 something year old, newbie to gaming. I started playing Tom Clancy’s The Division when it first came out, and was hooked from there.
I really enjoy the simulation games because they let me take my mind off real world problems, and just be in a world where I am a truck driver, farmer, wild game hunter, train engineer, or even a pilot. Not to mention I typically don’t get shot at as well! I do play some other games such as Minecraft, SpinTires, and some others from time to time.
I built my own gaming PC, and have invested quite a bit into streaming. I am fully partnered on YouTube, and am an affiliate on Twitch. I do not stream to Mixer because I really don’t like that platform. Too many trolls if you ask me!
My PC Specs are:
- Gigabyte GA-Z170X-UD5 Motherboard
- Intel Core i7-6700K 8M Skylake 4.0Ghz
- 32Gb Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 2666
- Gamer Storm Captain 120 CPU Liquid Cooler
- EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 8Gb GDDR5 PCIe 3.0
- Kingston HyperX 120Gb 3K SSD (Windows 10)
- Kingston SSDNow 240Gb SSD (Games)
- Samsung EVO 500Gb SSD (Games) x 2
- Razor BlackWidow Ultimate 2016 Keyboard
- Zelotes T-90 Gaming Mouse Adjustable DPI
- Corsair Carbide Spec-02 Gaming Mid Tower
It’s a very capable Gaming PC, worth every penny, and it cost a LOT of pennies! I also have 4 screens, 3 are 40″ HDTV’s, and 1 is a Acer 27″ wide screen. I only play games on one screen at a time, since the 3 40″ displays, aren’t the exact same model, the spanning function in the Nvidia software, doesn’t work that good. Also I don’t like streaming at that high of a resolution. 1080p is perfect for me.
So many of you are wondering why I went back to Twitch. My biggest reason is the ability to make money on both platforms. Now me streaming isn’t about money, because I usually give away all that I get in donations, and payments. But the twitch platform, for me, right now, is a better place to stream. I have given my feedback to Google on what they need to change to really compete with Twitch as a live stream platform, but they haven’t changed anything as of yet. So, I am going to Live Stream to Twitch and export the video to YouTube. At least for the time being.
