That video looked really fun. I'm wondering if windowless, empty green rooms with floor mats and in wall speakers may become a new home designer fad. Like a padded cell for geeks, heh.

If I remember right barrelbelly, it was you who posted a link from a game dev who claimed dx12 would benefit older cpu's more than the bright and shiny new stuff. So with a little luck, your gear...

Thanks DaverJ, I'm glad I'm not the only one. I did get really lucky with Win 10 though, and it didn't behave badly at all.

It's a premium item at a premium price. If nobody buys it, than I'll doubt they'll make a controller as nice again. With that said, go geeks. Buy and enjoy the good stuff.
