      @Arend Galenkamp are you Blind and or Deaf? I mean his Vids are mostly easy to watch and hear, just because it's not best of the best doesn't mean it's unwatchable, you're just wanting to bitch about something that trivial, I bet you are a blast at party's!!

      You know what's a lot cheaper than that, even without the 2,000 dollar sulfide sensor? An air refreshener; and the rule that after you've dropped a deuce, you use it.

                That little thing is super useful! A lot of projects that can be controlled wirelessly require an Ardunio and a Raspberry Pi. With this you have both in the same system, saving space, possibly money, AND time.

                                  Worth noting that the main reason why Cities: Skylines isn't just locked at 1fps is that most of the heavy CPU load in that game is asynchronous, you can see this if you have a huge city, where the game will appear to run normally but all the cars and people will be in slow-motion. The game world itself is still running as a static object alongside the camera synchronously which gives you decent fps, but all the city simulation stuff (vehicles, people getting/losing jobs, building development etc) is running at a snail's pace behind the 30fps facade, which will make the game mechanically unplayable.

                                                    You wanna talk bottlenecks? I used to run a core 2 quad q6600 with a gtx760. It ran overwatch on minimum settings and 70% render scale.. at like 40-45 fps.
                                                    So I upgrades my processor to an i5 7500. Now on the same settings I get around 200 fps.
                                                    Turned my settings up to almost max and still get 100+ stable fps. That core 2 was holding my PC back soooooo badly lol
