Dang, that's some serious specificity there. I truly couldn't even tell you the manufacturer of my current GPU. I just bought it NIB for thirty bucks off of a dude I met through work and then chucked it in my PC (well, I did also need to buy a new PSU off Amazon in order to run it). Before that I was just using the APU, which was good enough for SoC with high FPS on static lighting.

Well, that's because I picked all the parts specifically and built it myself.
However my current system, I admit I was lazy and bought it pre-built.
The only thing I've changed is immediately replacing the turd video card.

Got mine pre-built as well, as it was on sale and cheaper than any of the comparable builds that were near my price range. It's good for old games though, along with some of the less-demanding newer indie releases.

It's a picture of Max Chill: King of the Bandits surveying his Dark Valley domain during an emission in Call of Chernobyl. I highly recommend checking out that mod when it releases, the A-Life and AI are superb.

I thought it was an empty vessel. The levels are there but it has no
story, no tasks, no missions or anything for the Player to do actually.

Nah, there's plenty to do. Traders have your usual assortment of item acquisition, assassination, and camp elimination missions. Plus random NPCs also have basic quests as well. And there are stashes to activate (which can be achieved through a fairly novel bit of gameplay), along with the basic framework of a main mission thread (get the psi-helmet, deactivate the Brain Scorcher).

But the A-Life is the best part. It's truly unpredictable, and you'll often find yourself confronted by enemy factions and almost any type of mutant at any point along your travels. Playing as a bandit I would start at the base in the Dark Valley, and just in that level alone I battled with nearly every faction and mutant type on a semi-regular basis (though some more than others as dictated by the general spawns of the levels, meaning that it's not too random). And the difficulty levels have been tweaked a bit so that Master is slightly harder, which makes survival all the more thrilling (and I hear that the lower difficulties have also been balanced to the point of actually being worthwhile).

Altogether it makes for a freeplay experience that easily tops anything that can be found in any of the base games. Plus it's a standalone install, so you wouldn't have to worry about disrupting any of your ongoing games. It's definitely at least worth checking out.

Yurik and the 3 trench coat Loners are all perma-bodies so actually
this would be neat to do because you will always find out where they
will end up in case they don't die in front of you ( except in an anomaly ).
