I am probably too late to catch current trend in gaming culture, five years in college with old laptop while I watch lets play videos and play some casual online game like MOBA was regular thing I used to do. And seven years backward, I lived in a place where there was no real gaming activity besides trying to be more religious in religious school.
The reason I like video game activity and its culture (i know its pretty general but I want to make some post that specify my definition of gaming later) is this is something like part of my escapism today and when I was younger. Maybe, my motivation to learn English came from video game (I remember when I try to translate some phrases on video game dialog and want to know the meaning of the plot. It was back when I cant afford to have console and watch some people play in public video game rental (this is something to post worthy).
Today, I am aware of technology and what it can offer toward the consumer of current gaming system that I can choose (when I was kid, I really want to have console like SNES or PSX. PC had double price than today and I was too afraid to have one because if you couldnt use it, it will infected your PC and blow).
In 2008, dad bought me a pre-build PC as for my long-waiting gift. Its a time when I just barely knew a little bit about Internet and also dont know too much about how to understand pc works and its hardware until 2012 I took a course in PC building and repairing. (Its became my part-time job for additional bux).
Fast forward now, I can have my own stable job where I can afford more higher budget for my building better pc than I had before for music editing and rendering video (its just dualcore processor with shitty vga that basically used for daily entertainment and browsing. So, after many research and considerations to get better PC. I plan to build my own PC with more budget. Anyway, here the components I am using.

I know its not reaching for ultimate PC gaming for sure I get decent PC to maintain my productivity besides gaming. I tried to run audio project with heavy loaded sample packs and premium VSTi's that ran on my old PC very lag and unplayable. With the rig I use, it runs flawlessly.
Anyway, I dont really talk about the title about PC Gaming Master Race, maybe later. Its midnight and I need to sleep so that tomorrow I can get my earning while this pc gaming master race is my debt that probably I can pay in two - three months.
