Holy crap, 5960x at 4.4Ghz, 64 gigs of ram and quad Titan

Everything about displays and monitors. 120Hz, 144Hz, 4K, 1440p, input lag, motion tests & TestUFO, monitor decisions, and more. Questions? Just ask!

Pretty much everything in any game is only accessed once from disk. After that, there's no disk I/O happening; everything comes from the Windows cache that's in RAM.


Yeah, ram disks don't seem very useful. You can spend time loading the entire game to the ram disk before you start playing so you don't have as long of initial loads during game, but meh. It doesn't seem worth the effort when SSDs are already so fast.

That's not the case with MMOs but they are an outlier.

That rig will be relevant for a couple years at least. The name is fitting.
