5 Ghz or more?

Hi guys, I'm glad I didn't get a new PC yet. My old nVidia had 3.88Ghz or something I think. Don't remember. It was always the RAM that was important before.

So an FM that craves 5 Ghz or more? What processor is that now? Had the i5 in my xfx machine. 

What's the best, but not most expensive machine to get for these newer FM's? I like building them myself, but I'm not spending 6K again. Not with todays technology!

Any suggestions? Mom's HP laptop works with smaller games (20 or less Mbs) with TDM with the 2.10 & Win 10, but even the Acer Desktop with Win 11 is having slag issues with the latest version.

If I'm gonna build my own FM (one day) I need to know this for the future

Generally speaking the CPU isn't too important for FMs, but the GPU (graphics card). Even the RAM isn't that important, I have 8 GB in this machine but a relatively beefy graphics card and I still have yet to encounter any game that has been tripped up with the amount of RAM.

Unfortunately GPUs aren't particularly cheap right now (at least for something decent), but then again if your primary interest is in The Dark Mod, you don't need something super powerful - it's an advanced Doom 3 engine after all. I suspect the main issue is the GPU in your laptop/desktop isn't powerful enough, either because it's old or it's some integrated unit that doesn't do games very well. I'm sure others will have advice for specific cards though, I'm out of the loop.

A word of warning, Agent Denton. This was a simulated experience; real LAMs will not be so forgiving.

      Anyone here played Inscryption? At first, I was like "no, I am not going to play a stupid card game", but this game is so much more than that. It is so meta, full of 4th wall breaks, and feels so damn spooky and weird because of it. Absolutely recommended, if you can stand the visuals. I recommend not reading up too much on it, as that could easily spoil half the incredible surprises. Just know that what you see in the beginning is by far not everything.

      Tried to make a tdm advertisement commentpost at one of civvie11 youtube videos about T2. Post got marked as spam. His problem (to not discover TDM for himself),..not my problem.
      But some help of some fellow TDM yt-videocomment posters would be nice. To ask him and others, to play TDM. To get more players/creators.

      Currently Profile Information has 3 fields, these are shown in forum posts under your avatar:

      I think that it could be useful to have an extra field called "Operating system" (under location). It can be useful for tech support and to see what people use.
      Alternatively it could be a more general term, like PC system, so that you can for example state that you use an AMD gpu.
