    Sharing directly from Google is asspain, yeah. I gave up years ago.
    I had to edit it on the PC, that's why now you see it in correct orientation.
    And yes, sharing from Drive sucks big time.

    Thanks Freude for the suggestion!

    Pick yourself up a 1440p Freesync monitor to take advantage of that 580. It’s being held back by your 60Hz monitor.

    I dunno, Alan, I would rather prefer to run any game at Ultra settings, 16x anisotropic and full AA with 60fps than lose that.
    I've a 4K 50" HDR Samsung TV I could hook it up, but then the 580 would die trying to keep up the resolution and high settings.

    So, I added a third HDD, the old mechanical one from the old PC.

    So, right now the new PC has this setup: Crucial MX500 250GB SSD for the OS (Win 10 Pro), Crucial MX500 500GB SSD for the games and WD Blue 500GB HDD for my personal data.
    It was a bitch to put the HDD rack inside the case since I've many cables in it, but I managed; I think the 3 storage solution is ideal so far.
    I still have a 240GB Kingston SSD in my old PC, dunno what to do with it... maybe a quick external portable hdd?

    Future purchases? a new backlit keyboard (possibly the wireless Logitech K800?) and some decent headphones - no stupid gaming headphones with useless USB connection needed - I'm going to look into Sharkoon or HyperX, otherwise jump to Sennheiser or AudioTechnica.
    Many people swear by the cheap Superlux HD681EVO, but they are very fragile and I'm know to break products too flimsy (aside from the fact I find them ugly).
    Still entused to buy the classic Sony studio headphones, but I dunno if I'd enjoy their flat, neutral, sound (still, I've used them working years ago and I think they are phenomenal).

    The open back AT headphones are legendary for their placement. Very useful for FPS.

    I did end up switching to Logitech G930s because of mic convenience though. Also because now I'm now no longer a h4rdc0r331!! 1!1! FPS (or indeed any) gamer.
