    I honestly have no idea. I always assumed that the resolution had to do more with just the throughput of the GPU while the detail had to do more with the processing power of the GPU. That said, I base this on a couple of articles I read 15 years ago in questionable video game magazines.

    That's a good looking build. And it takes a full size graphics card, so that's very helpful.

    I'm at work today and it turns out we sell most of the things I want, so I priced a few things up at chump price vs staff price. I mostly deal with furniture here, IT is a very different department.

    We've only got the lower-spec Trident with an i5 and a GTX1060, but even then it looks like I'll save close to $750 on a $4000 outlay, bringing it down to $3250. Add roughly $500 for the up-spec pooter with the i7 and 1070.

    At least buying a wheel is an easy decision. Being both a PS4 and XBone owner (XBoner???) I'd have had to really decide whether I get an Xbox or PS4 wheel, but with MS bringing their major first-party racing game releases to PC it means I can use a PS4 wheel in Forza 7 without an issue.

    Which naturally leads into that eternal question: why bother with the XBone if you can have a better quality experience on a beefy PC, especially if you've got the hardware already and aren't averse to paying 5x the price.

    BUTů gotta pay off some credit cards first!

    Pay off your credit cards first. Then get an i5 with a 1070. Don't bother with an i7.

    Again, however, pay off your credit cards first.

    PAY OFF YOUR CREDIT CARDS FIRST.

    Just bear in mind credit cards can't be paid off unless you load them up first, so GET CHARGING.

    I just want to be reasonably responsible.

    My current thinking is to build it myself, and buy stuff a little bit at a time, while I pay off some debt a little bit at a time. It's much better that way, despite what the naysayers say.

    I've only got about $3500 ticked up across two cards anyway, so it's not like I'm swimming in debt.
