    Anyone going to build a new PC for Pantheon?  Or is in the process of doing so?  What did you end up putting in? Anyone running thread Rippers and 4090's?

    I've built 5 PCs for the household using a tight budget and diving on good sales.  But I should hopefully be good for myself (8600k with 3070).  I also tried Pantheon on my steamdeck, worked well for the most part but i'm interested in seeing how well it can run once more of the video settings work.

    Good to know it works on Steamdeck, I can play on the go now :) But yes, I need to build another PC myself seeing how the fans are running ins super turbo mode when I play lol

    All I know is that I ran a test of my own - and was amazed to find that the alpha ran pretty well on my wife's 2013 Inspirion All-in-One. I was expecting a screaming heap of plastic and bits exploding into oblivion upon start-up and was utterly amazed at just how well it ran.  I am sure that this does not mean that this title will actually support such an archaic pile - but this should be a very strong indication of the level of support that it will have.

    I find that if you buy a decent machine and not some celeron / gimped processor type of rig, they generally last quite a long time.  Alot better than they used to.  I remember back in the days of EQ1 it was pretty standard to do a full upgrade every time a new game came out / every 2 or 3 years just to be able to play anything.  Glad those days are over.

    I've had my PC now for 10 years and it plays just about anything decently well.  Sure I don't get to play with all the settings cranked to the hilt, but I find I can make most games look acceptable.

    That said, I'm feeling it's time.  I was planning to buy a Gigabyte B760M C board so I could get to DDR5 / LGA 1700 processors.  I'll put in the least expensive LGA 1700, so probably a 12th generation i9 processor with 32GB of DDR5.  The rest of my stuff should come over fine, mine water cooler is compatible with an adapter, the case I still love, and my video card I didn't upgrade too long ago, so still rocking a Nvidia 3060, which I think still has some life in it.  Same with my NVME cards and power supply.
