Cool. So I was thinking Windows 7... Windows 10 is... hit n miss. I duno. I personally think Win10 is a sad attempt at redemption for Win8 and Win Vista. I think their clinging on to some new, really bad ideas. Like how on Windows 10 the program files has a ton of conflicts with steam and other applications because its so locked down. I get their trying to protect my files, but I dont want my computer to treat me like the lowest common denominator of human intelligence... Even the task manager treats you like you're a total nimrod 70 year old lady who cant get her Email to work without her grand sons assistance. I find it insulting. I'll probably go back to Win 7.

As much as I too liked Windows 7, I really suggest keeping Windows 10. It has more modern features, like DX12 - as well as modern security improvements. Sooner rather than later, Windows 7 will reach end of life support and will no longer receive any updates. Windows 10 is the overall better choice. It uses less system resources (as Windows has in general with each new iteration) and has a host other benefits (the big one for gamers being DX12). I can sympathize with you on permissions though. It has caused a lot of frustration for me over the past year, as I've been fiddling with my file structures and mod lists more than I usually do. But it's just one of those things I personally feel are worth putting up with. In the long run I think it will be worth it. However, you may have a different perspective on it and that's totally fine. If you feel like rolling back to Windows 7 is the right move for your situation - then I that's okay. You know what you want out of an OS better than I do.

It plays nicer with most games, but for regular desktop jobs, and application usage. Editing files, and file paths its a major headache.  Like I said. Hit n Miss. Games arnt my main priority in decision making. Thats why I own the 5820k, over the 6700k. I can get about 5-15FPS more on a 6700k then I can a 5820k. But when it comes to my job. The work load is heavy in 7zip and winrar files, which the 5820k is much more attune to dealing with. Thats where my graphics cards of Doom comes in to make up ground on the video processing loss of the 5820k. It's a balance act between being able to work hard and play harder with one machine... :cool:

 

Deal is I'm self employed. I own my own company. I cant rely on the head man to provide me a computer for work. I am that head man...

Maybe next year I'll get one Pc for Gamming and have all the nic nacks, bells and whistles, but I only have about 7-15k a year of wiggle room to play and to enjoy life. So I try to make one rigg to cure it all. :laugh:

 

Speaking of play money. I need to renew my nexus Premo... Thats going to get old, fast. I'll probably just buy the lifetime. Their advertisers are dangerous with malware., and extremely obnoxious... No thanks, It's like a flashback of my days on shady porn sites in 05' lol!

I figured you must have reason on why you'd prefer to roll back. If it's better for you work - then by all means go back to Windows 7. The extra cores are beginning to be more helpful in some modern games, so it's not too bad to have now. In a lot of ways, you were ahead of the curve picking that over a 6700k. I mean, a look at Intel's latest lineup with Coffee Lake shows that more cores seem to be the future.

It's Nexus' shifty ads, and the resources that they steal away when I have like a dozen tabs open at once, that encouraged me to buy a supporter membership. I felt too bad using adblock on a site I use so often.

Yeah, I can sleep easy, knowing I've contributed to a greater cause. And now I dont feel as guilty, knowing I've downloading 200 mods for Fallout 4. ha!!!

Benchmarked my FPS with that program. Mind you I have (4) youtube video's going. My video editor Running, Daz3D open. Photoshop open, with a photo in it. 1500x1500. Photoimpact XL3 open with a photo in it. (same image) Creation Kit open, and steam running.

 

I still haven't installed my SSD and RAM Sticks yet.  I'll save that for this weekend. Also, pay no mind to the 4GB you see in the Unigine interface. It's a bug. It hasnt been updated yet. My PC and Photoshop shows 11 gigs.

 

The game was ran on Extreme settings,

Which is the highest I can go for the unpaid version. but basically this is what you get out of a GeForce GTX 1080 Ti 11GB with all those applications running as well. Though I'll be honest I dont know how much my processor has to do with it. Probably not a big difference though. I havnt even looked and my snipit. so what ever it is, is what it is.

Wow, my games are beautiful now. O.O

I have my card on the highest settings, and game on highest settings.

With Ambient Occlusion on. It did hit 40 FPS when I had 30 'odd people fighting in skyrim, but I mean thats a lot of bodies to calculate especially on 4k textures with maxed out settings. Thats still very impressive.
