  1. I've not had any sleep...but there are some changes made as of late last night to FG. For a change, no long essay from me, no long explanation - go and have a look. Massive room for scope. Just want to hear your thoughts. GGFG

  2. No worries everyone. I didn't think even I would struggle for time and other things around this Christmas week but here we are! Kind of helps the fact you guys could see who won what before me as it was automatically done by the system. Well done to @Spacedeck , @Plumbers Crack and @Misneach_ getting the remaining presents from the Big FGFGF Xmas Giveaway. Hopefully, like @phil bottle says above, it gave many of you something to look at, get behind for a bit of fun and joy as that was the only intention because it was only for existing FGers. Sorry if you didn't win, if we can pu

  3. Gary, please ignore one piece of Lee's advice.....do NOT try and put the monitor, keyboard and mouse inside the case, it'll make using the system a bit difficult and you might have trouble getting the side panels back on! 🤣

  6. As we can't really travel at the moment I thought I'd share some pictures of some of the places I've been over the last decade in the hopes that you guys would do the same, the one thing that has changed with covid is the lack of travel, true for others it's much worse so I get that a lot of us have been lucky so far. Pics from Norway, Australia and aushwitz and closer to home Scotland,Wales, IOM and Yorkshire.

    Hi everyone, I'm Ant and new to the forums. I've been a gamer since i got my first playstation back in the 90s and have been a playstation guy ever since (though i did have a couple of xbox's too lol) and recently managed to upgrade to PS5. I play all sorts of games, but love horror and action games. I'm currently playing Need for Speed Hot Pursuit Remastered, God of War and Maneater, with a bit of Fifa 19 now and again (career mode mind you lol). Looking to get into this online multiplayer lark and improve upon my noob status lol. Looking forward to chatting games and getting online with peep

    PC gaming for noobs

    As my daughter is hopefully leaving home for good this year I have a spare room. This room used to be a place where my weights and other assorted shit lived in my house, that is not going to happen again. Due to covid stopping me spending cash on fun I've now got some money to finally waste on PC gaming, something I've thought about in the past but ultimately dismissed. This is possibly largely to do with not wanting to waste a significantly sum of money( though that's been happening throughout my life especially at various sex shops due to being married but that's a different post altoge

  9. Great racing last night everyone. Only time for 2 races, which was outlined tbh, but I know sometimes people hope for an extra race or two if possible. I think in future weeks, as the newer people keep coming on and get used to the racing, alongside buying more cars, we can have slightly less Practice time moving forward. Race 1 - Circuit de Barcelona - Catalunya After practice looking likely that @Greboth would take this at a stroll as no one could get under 1.48 or any consistency so he had a 2 seconds advantage...and Qualifying proved that right as @JBR-Kiwi unfortu

    I believe it should now and forever be referred to as The NOT MATT! NOT MATT! incident 😆 My thoughts on the races; Race 1 - Blue Moon Bay oval GR3 This was always going to be a tricky one to hold the lead on due the slipstreaming and there basically being no corners to ever pull a large enough lead on. Qualifying was as expected close with it seemingly coming down to a bit of luck of who was getting a tow at the rights parts of the lap without being hindered at others. In the middle of qualifying I managed to time it perfectly, getting a tow from Mike out of turn

  11. I've not done some updates for a while but suffice to say we've had a roller-coaster of a ride with us now bouncing around Division 3, sometimes Division 4 and hitting the dizzy heights of Division 2 a few times already. Pretty amazing achievement I think really, considering that vast difference in skill level between us all and we're pretty much having a laugh and putting the world to right as we're playing! Having said that, Monday Night Football this week started off to a flyer after having one game left in Division 3 which we needed to win to get promoted. Usually the first gam

  12. Always good to welcome more to the PC gaming 🙂 I'd disagree with Ren though about going prebuilt, while there is more hassle in building your own at your budget I'm almost certain it will be cheaper (or a better spec) and the warranty on individual parts is usually equal or longer to that offered by system builders. GPU - Parts are a pain at the moment but as James said an RTX3070 (or AMD 6800, maybe 6700 depending on benchmarks) at minimum should see you sorted for a good few years. Obviously if you want to splash the cash there's always a 3080 too. Or even simpler -

Honestly love getting on with you lot Tuesday evenings for race days. The wife has not been pleased as our time difference puts me directly in the cross hairs of the end of the workday, time to pickup our son, and get dinner on the table.

  17. I'd start saving your money and buy a better one later in the year as £300 is not going to get you a lot and you may find you'll have to buy another one in a few years time. My advice would be to buy a laptop stand and buy a seperate keyboard and mouse. The laptop stand will raise and keep your laptop cooler, so you shouldn't be hunched over too much. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Kensington-Portable-Ergonomic-Cooling-SmartFit/dp/B0007YB8NM/ref=sr_1_5?dchild=1&keywords=laptop+riser&qid=1610027525&s=computers&sr=1-5

  20. £1500 is a decent budget - a rig with a 3070 would be a fantastic entry point and it'll already get you ahead of the PS5 for the entire generation. This could handle 1440p like butter and would be great for 4K gaming for years to come. Trouble is you'd probably need another £500 on the side for peripherals and a monitor. If you aim to spend £1000 on the device and £500 on the side, you'll probably restrict yourself to 2K gaming and then have a pricey upgrade route going forward if you wish. It will be perfectly satisfactory though and still offer a great gaming experience but for j

  21. FG has form for building our own machines so I will encourage that😁 My advice is to first decide what display you want, 1080p, 1440p or 4K. That will determine which GPU to go for. Personally I'd go for 1440p. It's the sweet spot between lovely graphics and high frames. There's some good GPUs that will give 1440 and all the fps, that won't destroy your wallet. Then we need to decide AMD or Intel. @Diddumswill be better suited for that advice as I'm Intel only.

    Good racing last night guys. It was good to see a large group racing again this week and even my missus says she hasn’t heard me laugh so much on a race night! 😄 @Greboth3rd race was hilarious but I enjoyed the close racing on that one with you even if it did get close! Definitely think the GT needs to have another look at the penalty zones on the red bull track as there was a lot of frustration flying about!

  29. I won a few races last night in the Sunday league thing. I haven't raced properly since GT4 (apart from the NFS stuff and GTA which is to racing what Blackburn Rovers is to professional football) so it was nice to have a little go again. I have a fucktonne of practice and shit to do but it was a laugh, I can see myself getting in to it again.

  31. Race 1 - Catalunya Gr.3 I don't dislike this track as much as some though since they added the chicane in the last sector it is very mickey mouse. I wish more games would give the option of running the Moto GP layout which does (did?) run the older double right handers rather than the chicane. A pretty quiet race night for me all told, qualifying started off badly with a penalty on my first flying lap meaning I was about a second off my pace. Lap 2 of qualifying saw me get a good lap in, a few tenths off my PB but good enough pole which was going to be important as Phil had said it was

  32. As part of looking for something to entertain whilst stuck in the house this year, i've really started to get into my board games as part of having something different to do whilst stuck in the house. The general feel for these have been to either be single player games or decent group games that aren't too difficult to get to grips with so the kids could join in easily. We've really enjoyed these so far and i thought it'd be good to share the experiences of these games with you all I'll continue to add to the thread as the collection grows as i have no doubt it will!

    My package arrived today also. Thank you very much Lee and everyone from FG. The wife was unsure and surprised I had won something. She was chuffed for me and proud. Maybe it will result in extra game time over the year. I can say if I want to have a chance of winning anything else in the future I need another few games. 😂

I think its similar to having Astros as a headset over a cheaper version. Both do the same job but this chair has helped me no end, especially now I live in it every day for 12ish hours at least a day in lockdown. As we seem to have a bit of time here as i'm sure Gaz will be delighted about 😄 from a dummy to another dummy when it comes to this stuff around the highly tech guys and girls, we should make th

  38. No Thanks This is a card game based around numbers and the idea being to have the smallest total once the deck is exhausted. The numbers in play are numbered 3-35. Everybody starts the game with no cards and between 7-11 "pass counters". The first card is then revealed from the deck and then it will be down to the first person to decide whether to take the card or to play a pass counter (No Thanks!) Obviously there is slightly more complexity and tactics to the game which is down to 2 factors. When you elect to take the card, you also collect all o

    Happy New Year everyone. Here's hoping that this year is an improvement! What did you do this NYE? How did 2020 work out? I'm just home listening to My Dying Bridge and trying to get my head around what to do in Terraria. Daughter was sleep when all fireworks started, but she isn't a big fan of the loud noises (luckily they didn't wake her up). So as with any new year that closes in, do you have any resolutions you want to aim for? I did have a few, which I think I'm going to have to scale back to be more realistic. 1. I want to read at least 6 books in

Couldn't agree more with you @JBR-Kiwi , this weeks racing was seriously good fun. 10 players on the grid this week after 9 last week - we'll soon have a max 16 players on the grid after hearing @Macca89 @Diddums and @Stretch616 are also looking to get involved when they can. I'm really starting to get a rhythm going for the first race of the night. It took me the whole of practice though to work out what car could work on that Tokyo track but I eventually settled on my 5th choice, the Audi TT. Although I got the 3rd fastest time in practice (pipping @Mikepjbell ) a

We usually spend the days around Christmas running around visiting family so I was actually really looking forward to this Christmas. The wine was flowing early. Aside from some gift cards from family I usually only get a present from my parents. Me and the wife stopped giving each other presents a long time ago. Us
