    It doesn;t mater if it's cosmetics or gpu. Someone will think it is stupid that people spend their money they way they want to. It all comes down to if it doesn't concern you then mind your own business.

    Because you're buying something that has no resale or real world value. Here's a tip, learn to dance and go to your local hobby shop, finds some paints and paint yourself up like a game character, you'll save a couple of bucks and probably make a few people laugh.

    One wonders if CliffyB is sad he "departed". Wonder what his stock options would have been like nowadays.

    Ah who cares, dude is 100x richer than I will ever be anyway.

    I wish, a little boy can dream, especially with UT99 coming up to its 20-year anniversary.

    Nah, I just don't care about gaming as a service. But you can continue to support nonsense.

    Yes, supporting people who buy what they want is nonsense. I mean you bought a 1070 why did you spend so much money when you could get by with a 970?

    it's their money and it's their choice to spend it on what ever they want as long as it doesn't ruin the enjoyment of a game for everyone else playing it that don't want to buy that stuff..

    Do you drink? Smoke/vape? All consumable that you don’t need and has no resale. Candy? Soda? Red Bull?

    I could go on... you have something you spend money on that people would say the same thing. That you waste your money.

    Just because you think those days are over, doesn't mean I have to buy into what's happening currently.
    Gaming isn't on my to do list these days.

    This PC is for light multimedia work, not Fortnite.
    Let's see your rig. So I can tell you how money you wasted to play a game on PC that's just as good on consoles for much less.

    Fortnite is pretty much the reason Epic stopped developing Unreal Tournament 4, so screw it.

    I'm not the one running off about what people spend their money on, or what they want to run on their equipment. What I said was a jab at the idiocy if your statement. Sorry you don't want to hear the truth.
