Getting a New Computer Rig for Fortnite Streaming

am




Yes, you’re reading it right, I’m downing $5K to get THE BEST computer graphic card the NVidia (I’m so buying this stock on the next downturn), The computer itself is a Tank!

CPU: Intel® Core™ Processor i9-7920X Twelve-Core 2.9GHz 16.5MB Intel Smart Cache LGA2066 (Quad Channels) [+780]
HDD: 512GB Intel® 660P SERIES PCIe NVMe M.2 SSD – Seq R/W: Up to 1500/1000 MB/s, Rnd R/W up to 90/220k (Single Drive)
MOTHERBOARD: ASUS TUF X299 MARK 2 ATX w/ RGB, USB 3.1, 3 PCIe x16, 1 PCIe x4, 2 PCIe x1, 6 SATA3, 2 M.2 SATA/PCIe [Intel Optane Ready]
VIDEO: [Pre-Sale Ship on or After 9/27] GeForce® RTX 2080 Ti 11GB GDDR6 (Turing) [VR Ready] (Single Card)

I have not built a computer since 2001 🙂 after that I got a laptop for school, after graduation, I got another laptop, then strickly iPad, then MacBook Pro. It couldn’t handle the streaming, so here I am, getting the TANK. And it’s not even the biggest, baddest computer out there.

My computer won’t be home until 1 month, I hope I don’t get bored with the tournament or get to burnt out by then. haha

Fortnite has taken the majority of my free time these days, I’m getting around 2000 players under my wings, but I’m still sorting out who’s who’s what’s what’s of Fortnite. The Tournament is super competitive, 39 kills in a squad game.

I grow out of my laptop, I need a strong computer for game play and streaming. Somehow, I can sense that my Tournament can get big. I just don’t have all the resources at the moment to make it all work out. But I’m still building this.

If somehow, I can’t make it, I still have a great computer to use and will not be outdated for a long long time. haha

Wish me luck.

For those of the blogs that I subscribed to, I’m still reading your blogs through email that you sent.

  1. Wow, you know so much about YouTube.

    I didn’t know tipping is a thing until about 6 months ago. I don’t think I’ll be getting any tips. Hahah

    As far as ROI, I expect to be in the losing position for another 6mo to a year. Until Fortnite allows me to open my own private tourney, it’d be hard.

    What I’ve noticed is people don’t read the rules, but after 3 weeks of tourney, they are used to the rule, old contestants are explaining things to new contestants. I’m getting noticed, and climbing in popularity in Fortnite.

    The only thing missing is live-streaming which I hope will make things even more interesting as people would try to get in the same room as us to snipe stream, or prevent other teams from winning which

    Plan B if Fortnite doesn’t allow me to run my own private 100 people tourney, I can still run a tourney is playground for p vs p, solo tourney. And I could charge a fee to participate, but the prize will be so much bigger.

    I’m getting 30% of the top players in Asia, I’m going to continue to network to get 50%, once that said and done, my stream would more interesting to watch. 🙂

    I’ll have to keep telling myself to keep at it. If I fail, I still have a beast of a computer that will be great for at least 5 years 🙂
