God my wallet hurts but it’ll be worth it

@marenzie Valorant and VRChat. And not much else. I mostly want it for NVENC.

@loveshock Nice! NVENC is for rendering art and such, right? Anything big you're working on you don't mind telling a stranger?

@marenzie Actually, I’m a streamer and graphic designer, so it’s mostly for those things. AMD cards aren’t really up to snuff comparatively for those tasks.

@loveshock Oh, whoops. Today I learned, I guess. Well here's wishing you luck on whatever you do! Love your website by the way and looking forward to seeing your next stream!

@loveshock I know the feels. I just got what I can only describe as a "mid-life crisis" computer that has all the specs I dreamed of as a teenager and cost me about 5k all in. Is it worth it? I mean... yeah? lol
