Upgraded my video card to a  XFX - AMD Radeon RX 480 8 GB GDDR5. I like how you can change the fans out so you can install a fan that lights up to a different color (sold separately.)

 

I ordered a set of blue fans since the stock white fans clash with the blue case fans I have in my PC.

Found my monitor that I bought on Newegg a year ago is on sale around $400 off its original price. Couldn't pass up on that so I ordered it and I'll have dual monitors in a couple of days.

Impulse-bought a Lenovo Thinkpad T460s to replace my T440s. The new machine is a base model i5 compared to the older one which was a i7 (still dual-core) Haswell, so the final performance would probably end up fairly similar. Other specs are the same - the usual 256GB SSD, 8GB RAM, 1080p IPS screen, which is all that matters. I dropped the touchscreen which turned out to be more hindrance than help, and the backlit keyboard which I used maybe once a year.

 

So really there was no reason for me to do this changeover, but the price was irresistable: $1000AUD for the new machine when I paid well over double that for the older one originally. The new one is about 20% lighter at ~1.35kg (3 pounds) which is nice but just icing on the cake. Old machine goes to my parents who were using my old Core 2 Duo Dell with an almost completely dead battery as a spare machine.

Weird. The Lenovo Thinkpad T460S (1080p, 8GB RAM, Core i5, 256GB SSD) is our company's current standard laptop model. It's clumsy, ugly and soulless.

 

I would never have guessed someone would actually buy one of them voluntarily.

Those are the exact traits I look for in a laptop. :p It's a business machine not concerned with being "sexy" but rather having things like the best keyboard available on a laptop, good connectivity options, being tough as nails, etc.

When I see that I read good value. Paying extra for branding is silly after all ?

Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 and GTX 1050 Ti review: The new budget gaming champions
www.pcworld.com
Nvidia's GeForce GTX 1050 and GTX 1050 Ti are the best graphics cards for budget gamers and people looking to upgrade a prebuilt "big box" PC.

"
Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 and GTX 1050 Ti review: The new budget gaming champions
Bottom line

Nvidia truly knocked it out of the park with the GeForce GTX 1050 and GTX 1050 Ti. Not only are these graphics cards a worthy successor (and worthwhile upgrade) for the legendary GTX 750 Ti, Nvidia’s cards are notably cooler, notably more power-efficient, and notably more powerful than AMD’s Radeon RX 460. "

Memory: 8 GB DDR4 RAM

1 TB HDD
What no SSD? Does not affect gaming, but Windows boots/starts slower.

Operating system: Windows 10. I do have separately a 24 inch gaming monitor with 1 ms response time and Flicker-free , TUV Low Blue Light technology. Please note that I live in Finland Europe.  Therefore any price questions are a bit flawed since I bought it with euro currency and most of you live in America and use dollars.

I found this ok so you have Nvidia 900 series top end ELITE graphic card:

https://en.wikipedia...orce_900_series

 

It will run great certainly at FULL HD absolutely no problems with max settings. Please keep in mind that POE1 is more demanding then say

Battlefield 3, 4 and newest. However PoE2 is not a First person shooter and does not constantly need 60+ frames.

 

I don't know what is the situation regarding if that game POE2 has both 4k resolution and virtual reality support? If it does in those EXTREME

settings I don't know what performance it will have but remember it is not a first person shooter where you need constantly super frames.

 

You have a super computer and you don't need to upgrade. Since you have 32 GB RAM you can also have music playing that are other then the game

if you get bored on the game music and have lots of browser windows open while playing without worrying about RAM usage.

How are your temperatures? According to the reviews I've seen for that Notebook you might end up thermal throttling and should look into undervolting the CPU and/or repasting the system.
