First off, I have to give a HUGE shout out and Thank you to this community. They are family to me. They are the reason I can even be a real #redteam member. I thank mohotashi for turning me on to the AMD community. virgo4u for being the first #AMDRTP streamer I ever watched and being so entertaining I had to keep coming back for more. Without them, I never would have met all the people I now consider not just friends but family. Let me explain.
My MSI 970 Gaming Motherboard and FX8370 CPU and Gigabyte R9 380 4 Gb M1 Gaming GPU are all courtesy of remixreviews .The Case is courtesy of swaccelerated . The Case Fans and 120 Gb SSD for my OS are courtesy of gtagshuffle . The Ultra X3 PSU is courtesy of bernie8001 . The CoolerMaster CPU cooler is courtesy of georgefern , who I can say with great pleasure I actually got to meet in person as he made the drive out to deliver and help install said cooler. Much thanks on both fronts there man. I could have put it in alone but would have taken longer and aggravated my back more. Also, I wouldn't have had the afternoon with you. You are as awesome in person as online. My Sades K9 gaming keyboard also came from swaccelerated that I redeemed with points earned watching their great streams. Imagine getting to watch a family of great streamers, getting to join in the fun with them in game and getting a keyboard for doing it. It sounds too good to be true but it is. My Sades headset was won by bernie8001 from swaccelerated . He asked them to send it to me so double thanks go out there.
The Asus ROG Strix was originally a RX 570 4 GB GPU I won from the AMDGaming stream channel. I was however cursed with some real bad luck with 3 consecutive defective GPU's sent back for RMA's and tested and replaced with more RX 570's. After three consecutive defective 570's Asus was kind enough to offer me a fourth try with a new RX 570 or a refurbished quality tested RX 580, with the bad luck I had with the RX 570's I opted to take the Refurbished RX 580. Seems to have been a good choice as I have had the GPU in my system for 3 days now with Zero Errors and crashes. I have to give Asus customer support props they did do everything they could to get me a working GPU. It is Glorious and seems to be fully functional!
At this point, the only parts of my PC that are not from the great community members mentioned are my 500 Gb HDD for my games, pics and music that is from my old computer and the 16 Gb of Crucial Ballistix DDR3-1866 Ram (won from Crucial for my Valentine’s Day Ram Poem). Since I now have a complete system, I enter contests and giveaways like a madman in an attempt to get things I can pay-forward to others. It's not a lot but at this time in my life it is the best I can do. I have managed so far to win a Razor keyboard from katiya_graves , which I was able to pay-forward to a friend who had just earlier that day tweeted out that their keyboard died. Talk about timing! I have also won a Sapphire Nitro RX 460 from havenbreaker , which after discussing with other community members we were able to get that to a person in need as well.
Sorry this was so long winded. However, I felt the need to express my Gratitude and my feelings for this awesome community. #redteam, #AMD, #betterred , #TheStreamersLounge , #SWAccelerated.
Thank you for your time,
James LaTourneau = RQS-devine
