*looks at AMD 7870*

I need moar powah!

Why did you make a comic about me?

I am laughing out loud for the first time in a while.

It's over the top to the extreme, but damn those expressions.

I love this strip, but who could say no when such a product's key selling features are the "Higher Numbers" and "Newer Letter Combinations"? It even says so on the box! :D

Surpise Motherfucker?

But yeah, this illustrates why I'm kind of glad that I don't own a PC. I'd be far too tempted to buy the shiny new thing as soon as it came out.

At least when that happens with consoles it takes a good few years to happen =P

Is that a unicorgy?

And I really do need a new GPU... and monitor, and motherboard actually... oh, and extra memory and probably a SSD...

Ha! Joke's on you, two months ago I upgraded from a Pentium D to a second hand Q6600.
You don't have fall in with those evil and seductive store pushers, with their promises of phat frame rates and awesome resolutions. Upgrade responsibly.

Meh, the GTX 985 is sooooo yesterday. I just upgraded to three GTX 990. I can run Crysis 3 with 2 FPS more then before. totaly worth the 3k bucks.

Awww. I was expecting a "There are somethings money can't buy. For everything else there's MasterCard" parody... still good... I guess ;P

Not sure which is worse... the people who do this with PC parts or the people who need the newest smartphone model every time they come out with a new one.

So apparently Walter White is now selling PCs... and cutting them with drugs.
That somehow actually makes sense in my head.

Comic itself is not all that funny because it holds no real relevance to how often PC gamers actually upgrade...and the fact that most of us consult benchmarks before we shop so we don't have to ask retarded questions like "IS IT FASTER?". I don't think I've heard any self-respecting PC gamer ask that question actually, not since the invention of Google.

But the facial expressions are HILARIOUS (especially the talk-dirty-to-me face and the last one), so I'll give this one a pass based purely on that :)

GTX 990? That unstable piece of garbage?

I'll just wait for 995

I've been using a GeForce GTS 240 for almost three years and I can run the latest games smoothly with high settings (on a 1600x900 resolution). I might get a new graphics card next year, and it probably won't be the most advanced and expensive one out there.

PC gamers don't have to upgrade as often as console gamers would like to think.

I can relate to that feeling of having to buy the newest and shiniest, though to be truthful it turns more into a game of gauging components than a prebuilt computer vs another one. I don't think I'd even consider buying a prebuilt machine unless I was really low on time and didn't have a weekend open to build a new PC.

I'd really like to upgrade to a radeon 7970 from my radeon 6950, though. Skyrim with high rez textures must run at 60 fps damn it!

You're obviously completely mistaken. This comic exactly dictates how members of the PC master race (like myself) act when looking to buy new components. There's just no possible way this comic exaggerates for the sake of funnies at all.

I'm fine with exaggeration when it at least holds a hint of truth and exaggerates in the right direction.

If the comic exaggerated someone asking "by how much % is it faster?", etc then it would've at least shown that the comic writer has a vague clue as to how PC gamers shop around when it's time to upgrade.

The equivalent of this would be showing a "console retard" who is struggling to put the disc into his console, or can't figure out where the power button is. Hilarious.

Those people both have the same identifying name: Idiots :P

best part of the comic was the Unicorn Corgi

There is sort of a joke about this already

Just replace Female with Console :P

Pretty sure these last few strips have just been excuses to show adorable Erin artwork. ;)

Corey killed Grey a few weeks ago, and has been distracting us with saccharine artwork until the heat dies down.

Erin:Talk dirty to me
*BLUSH*
Ladies and gentlemen we have just come one step closer to critical miss rule 34 porn
*searches google images*
OMG IT ALREADY EXIST'S
*continue to search*
To bad it's only one rude pic of naked Erin :(

That last panel made my day. It's flawless in every possible way.

No, there's more, you just aren't searching hard (*snrk, snrk*) enough.

Also, some unpublished official stuff came closer than that panel.

CHIBI ERIN FOR THE WIN! Rainbows, robots, jets and cuteness; a dangerous and lovable combo.

The Graphics card is not weak.
YOU'RE weak!

Being able to run Crysis 3 at an FPS three times higher than your monitor's refresh rate?
Priceless

Yes your right I must continue you to pound away *giggle* at all the garbage pics intill I can finally complete my Erin hentai collection by finding all the critical miss porn there is to find!
P.S. I wonder if Grey knows about it and how he feels towards it?

Eh, I tend to wait almost a full ten years before upgrading. There's no sense in changing anything until the need for new components is absolutely drastic. Drastic as in "I can't play most of the releases from two years ago" drastic.

Before that, you're basically paying for an extra GT or an X in front of a number you already have, or for pretty abstract concepts that barely impact the visual quality. I remember buying my first vid card about fourteen years ago...

"Lookit this one! Nvidia GeForce Something-Something GT! It's got THIRTY PIPELINES!"

Me: "Uh, sure. What the fuck is a pipeline in relation to a GPU?"

Vendor: "WHO THE FUCK CARES, MOAR PIPELINES!"

Me: "Will this run Max Payne 2?"

Vendor: "PÄYPLÂYNZ!!!!!ONEONEELEVENLOL!"

Me: "Thanks, but no thanks. I'll keep browsing."

Captcha: Weylan Yutani
Oh, come on, Captcha. If you're going to nerd out, nerd out properly. Typos are for losers.

Don't do it Erin! If you hold out a few minutes, I bet you could get him to write a 6 or 7 on the box instead.

Aaron Sylvester:

I'm just surprised 2/3 of the top cards are still advertised as high-performance even though they're below 60fps average, seems kind of strange. I guess it's only a fool who plays any Crysis game on Max settings.

I'm going to go see if that last panel will function properly as an avatar. May the 'shopping commence.

EDIT: Yep, successful.

well, since you seem to be cliche driven why dont you tackle the urge webcomic artist have to draw females expressing emotions in chibi style..

the last panel is me when i get to install new components.
when i had to completely rebuild my gaming rig last summer because my old one died i was actually really disappointed when everything was running when i turned it on for the first time.
