    If you buy the game directly from Origin, get Origin Access first. 5$ a month, will give you a 6$ discount on BF1 (and any other Origin game).
    You'll also get to play around 40 games for free for 1 month.

    And if you decide to give a try to the multiplayer: Play War Pigeons and Operations, not the others. Team Deatchmatch is a less interesting War Pigeon, Rush is a less interesting Operations, and Conquest is the most popular mode but also the hardest for new players.

    Also: DICE has the best sound design in the video game industry, if I remember correctly they were a professional recording studio before. Play with the audio settings to make full use of your home theater.
    Also, do not currently use DX12. It offers no improvement and introduce some slight stutters. I don't know why, DICE had Mantle in a previous BF game and it ran GREAT.

    Thanks! i will have to check my config here because games detect my system as a stereo instead of a surround. I connect through the digital audio so i have no idea what's going on.

    My recent purchase. 2 units of the Bluboo Maya Max smartphone to throw my Lumia 640XL Windows Phone to the bin. My display is dying and my wife's touch-screen doesn't work anymore so we have to replace the crap not to mention Windows 10 Mobile sucks in all corners. A huge middle finger to MS for destroying the awesome and highly potential OS by not using it properly and allowing idiots to work on it.

    It's a Android phone and is very solid. Aluminium case, vibration physical button, finger print scanner, great audio sound, great display(eventhough 720p only), great camera for a chinese phone, great battery life, gorilla glass 4, USB-Type-C, quick charge, 3GB Ram, 32GB internal storage, LTE support, great wifi support, Android 6 on board, solid performance and quality and 6" display for just 159€.

    What else can you ask for that price?

    I got a MacBook Pro 13" 2014.
    Passed the Air to my wife. The trackpad on the XPS 13 was always failing and windows 10 had a weird issue with the display.
    She loves the battery and the amazing trackpad from the Air.

    I'm very happy with the upgraded performance from the 2012 Air I had.

    Paid a bit less than 600 but got like 300 back from the Dell. So at the end it was a good deal.

    By the way, that high res display is legit!
    My previous Dell and Air were both 1366x768, so this is a very nice jump from it.

    @Strike105X here some pictures I made today using the rear camera. Which is not that bad for a chinese one and better than many I have seen so far taking the price in count. The battery also charges super fast too which is really nice.

    Interesting, the camera seems to be a bit to blurry honestly, but anyway use the phones in good health @ruantec, hope you'll enjoy them ^^.

    No, i said you can't believe the stuff i could get for the lowest i5, and to be honest the most discounted i5, one for which wouldn't even fit in my system since it was skylake, not haswell, the prices for i5's are freaking insane... I honestly feel like i really got my money's worth and its not like i wanted to go with intel anymore either, i'm more of an AMD man. NVIDIA won me over, Intel however did not.

    The last two parts are finally here XD:

    WP_20161124_16_14_20_Pro.jpg

    Now, you may think that's a big cooler, but i swear its a whole new experience after seeing it live, not in videos or images, its HUGE!

    I'll start making my build on the 29th, can't wait, i hope i got a decent binned chip, so i can go up to 4.6 Ghz XD.

    Ah, yes i also got this for free with the CPU:

    Can't wait i'm so excited to play it, i kind of given up on it due to priorities, but i did love the prequel.

    That is some cooler ;)

    I finally got myself Reebok Nano 6, couldn't decide between them and Nike Metcon 2. Nanos were a bit cheaper in the end ;)

    Also got two new books (just finished Star Wars Darth Bane trilogy too):

    "Plantains" or "Cook-Banana" if you translate it word by word.
