Why do kids think they need the best graphics card to play just one game like fortnite? I'e seen stories before about kids needing one of those but whats the point if you're just going to play one game on it? Most people who have these graphics cards play multiple games with it.
Why?I don't understand...

I've just noticed you discuss CM Storm Spawn's firmware issues above. Have you taken the latest update into account? Speaking of that (the spawn has been discontinued in Europe due to bad reputation probably caused by the firmware), do you plan to mention availability of each mouse?

Well, technically speaking the only things you need in life are food, water shelter and clothing.

It's just a matter of wanting the newest and best thing, or being clueless.


a gtx 1060 6gb or a rx580 can run fortnite at  90+ fps easily.

I mean, it may be the age difference, but I really find it hard to give a crap about what people I've never met or will ever meet do with their money.

Some is wanting the best, but mostly I blame Youtube for this.
You see guys like Linux Tech Tips, Gamers Nexus and Jayz2cents throwing around Titans and 1080's and such like they are a dime a dozen. They get handed a LOT of free (high end) parts, the average person is NOT running this stuff.

One look at the Steam hardware survey proves this (more on this below).

Depends A LOT on the person/customer.
People without a clue balk at gaming system prices, "I can buy a gaming system at Walmart for $500, why is this $1400?". They don't understand that you can't toss a $100 card into an office computer and play games (well). Then you have those who only know enough to be dangerous, these people balk at a GTX 1060.

I do agree though, the people with "some" knowledge tend to knock these when in reality they work perfectly fine (I use a 580 and my system is a beast). For well over a decade a $300 gaming card (or thereabout) has been the best bang for the buck and you get quickly diminishing returns on anything above that with very little in the way of future proofing. The last few gaming systems I've built for myself and others all used GTX 1060 and RX580's. Would they like a GTX 1080? Of course, but even if they had it their experience wouldn't change. They don't have the screen resolution to push the GTX 1080, would bottleneck at the CPU/ram, or their frame rates are already high enough to not make a real improvement in 99% of games. Mostly though, people in general just don't have a system capable of pushing a 1080. 


Oh, and I won't even offer a quote on a low spec gaming system just for one game, especially Fortnite. Had a customer want that exact thing and I refused to do it. They had been playing it on a laptop and kind of freaked when I quoted $1400. If it's just built for one thing, it's a dedicated system, not a gaming system, and I don't want them changing games and finding it's sub-par.

Young people don't yet understand cost, so they're more loose about Wanting something.

But overall, I would say 1080Ti is, a better buy than most things, even though it's sold at a high premium. 

Would you rather have a leather jacket, or a 1080Ti.. Just the other day, My aunt had me proxy her a $5000 jacket from hermes. I mean, you could buy 7x 1080Ti's with that, and yet, mm.. some people, Jacket.

I blame targeted marketing, its been proven it works its why Tobacco adds are so restricted now days. Instead of advertising the latest product in a magazine they advertise for next to nothing thought streaming. Give a popular streamer your latest card it cost what the company maybe 700-800 bucks.. then watch sales come in cause they say how amazing the game looks with said card. I bet old fashion adverting cost far far more and didn't reach close to as many.

Does it really make a difference that the young person thinks he needs THE BEST graphics card to play one game ?

Because THE BEST graphics card will play all games, including that one game..   Seems the logic works even if the intention is narrow.

In the end, the parent will buy whatever they can afford regardless of -who thunk what-..


The result is probably almost always 1060 or 1050ti, I just feel bad for the peeps playing on laptops.. what a horrible way to live. haahha, i'm joking, no i'm not, it's awful, no it's ok, but not great..

Only a few, a very small few.
Women's stuff can be more expensive, but that's way beyond normal.

I'm not sure if it's because tobacco has fallen so far out of relevance or if I've been spending faaar too much time shopping online, but I I started to read it as taobao-co.

You have no idea how often I see this, with computer illiterate who recently switched to Mac being the worst about it.
What is worse is when they hear that their computer is not meant for gaming (or high, sustained loads in general) they immediately start trying to figure out how to upgrade to the newest Macbook, as if that will fix the gaming and heat issue.

I don't play Fortnite myself, but for competitive reasons I completely understand the appeal of a good GPU :)

And "playing only one game" isn't a good argument if you ask me. If they play a single game on a competitive level and spend 30+ hrs a week on it, it would make perfectly good sense to spend the money on a good GPU. Especially in comparison to someone who (casually) plays multiple games.

Though for the kids that think they need a RTX 2080 to play Fortnite, I believe the case is that they just want to copy the setup of their favorite streamer/pro-player :))

I was working the other direction.
I'm saying don't build to the lowest common denominator.*

I mentioned Fortnite for a good reason, the minimum requirements are a core I3, 4gb ram and Intel Intel integrated graphics. I won't even sell you an office computer with those specs, much less a computer labeled as a gaming system.

Minimum requirements won't do for someone playing on 144hz or higher :p My comment wasn't directed at you by the way

What's happening is, you've become motivationally detuned.

It requires X-amount of effort to feel X-amount of pleasure.


Playing computer game, 3 effort, 5 pleasure

Watching movies, 2 effort, 5 pleasure

Eating chikam nugats,  1 effort, 5 pleasure

Top-Ramen, 1 effort, 6 pleasure

Coffee, 1 effort, 8 pleasure

Alcohol, 1 effort, 8 pleasure

Hard Drugs, 1 effort, 10+ pleasure

If you Do the things on the bottom of the list for long enough in your lifestyle,  Your body will apply a divider to the perceived pleasure of those things.  Making the things further up the list nearly impossible to _Feel Motivated towards accomplishing_

Giving an extreme example, we see meth/heroin/hard drug addicts loaf around and do nothing all day waiting for a hit.

It's not that they don't find video games pleasurable, it's that their drive system perceives REWARD in such a detuned state,  that the RELATIVE motivation to complete any menial daily tasks has become Zero.

Meth mouth is the most obvious, there's NO REASON why a meth addict can't have OK teeth, if he continued to Brush his teeth., However,  that neglect of the day to day comes with the territory, because of that lopsided motivation drain/consumption of the addiction.

That is to say naasfu, (you are currently meth-addict LITE).. Same situation, lighter load.

Everything can be a need if you have extra money. Everything can be a project if you have spare time. Just look at this MK hobby, anything can be sold, everything can be a valid project. GH is full of people with extra money and spare time.

Kids generally have not experienced the opportunity cost between buying the best of something as opposed to being evicted from their residence and living on the street.

Kids brains are also filled with sugar and a form of financial absorption material that leads to them costing a substantial amount of money.

Kids are also grotty, ungrateful and smell funny.

Kids also **** themselves.

Dogs can be toilet trained in a few weeks, kids continue to smear fecal matter throughout your house for years.

Kids also scream when they don't get what they want.

Kids are easily manipulated by advertising, yet cannot be manipulated into not being turds.

In the olden days, you would give a kid a loin cloth, bowl haircut and a stick and send them off into the big bad world. They would return in 18 years and help you swap the engine out in your car.

These days you dress your kid in a Ralph collared shirt, give them a tablet and they code Skynet. But they cant even move your car out of the driveway. Because they don't have the attention span to learn or the coordination to manipulate a clutch with an accelerator.

Kids+money= biological bitconnect.

Maslow's hierarchy of needs is similar to galen's humors.

It's the right idea, but incomplete.

We've already got lots of good info on hedonic systems, most are quite recent since it's only been 15yrs since we've developed operational high res brain scanning devices.

Eat veggies and buy 1080Ti  is the only thing most people need to live a very complete life..

Ray tracing has certainly come a long way from when I used to play around with PovRAY back in the day.
"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But that’s incorrect. It’s in HHKB’s slogan, but when America’s cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada

Why do kids think they need the best graphics card to play just one game like fortnite? I'e seen stories before about kids needing one of those but whats the point if you're just going to play one game on it? Most people who have these graphics cards play multiple games with it.
Why?I don't understand...

Kids think funny things, but they think it will improve their performance. Because, it does!

$5000 dollar jacket holy smokes dude.
I'm surprised she didn't fly you there personally on a private jet.

?? Women buy stuff like this all the time..

I never even opened the box, I just got it from hermes and then took it to the water-trade shipping place.


That's a really expensive jacket. It really depends on the girl. Personally, i wouldn't pay that much for a jacket, but she can do what works for her.  :)

I don't see the parallel between the number of games one plays and what graphics card they need. The question is how demanding the game or games are, no?
