Okay, so aftermarket cards are just all the non reference/FE cards. Palit and Zotac are two manufacturers of GPUs, so getting one of theirs would be a good thing.

 

 

Yay all my ducks are lined in a row now. Happy bunny. Such good advice on this website!!

 

Holy sh*t, you're spending some $3000 on a NASA build so you can play Kotor at 1000FPS? All the power to you, but you could spend probably 1/3 of what you're paying for all of that and get a build that can play all of those games at max settings with 60-120FPS and several graphical mods.

 

I do want to buy a Bugatti Veyron for the nice looking cup holders!

I now have a problem where the guy on the phone said they have Founders Edition and that they sell Palit / Zotac GPUs. But the support team say they sell aftermarket cards and that they aren't Founders Edition. Confusing. 

 

Here's some info on "Aftermarket cards". From what I read they aren't Founders Edition.

From your expertly written replies I now know so much more about Graphics Cards! Nvidia are cruel haha. $100 more for a worse specs GPU is nasty haha.

I emailed them and they said: 

 

Regarding the GPU's we have aftermarket cards. 
 
Whatever that means!

I actually use a lot of USB ports for various different reasons. I have 2 x 8TB Seagate External Harddrives, 1 x 2TB Seagate External Harddrive and a 250GB External Harddrive (I have 150GBs worth of Kotor files copied on all of them 'cause I'm that weird about collecting and not losing the mods!). A Xbox gaming PC controller. A wireless mouse and a keyboard. 

 

I have recently bought a PS4 Pro for the playing of BLU-RAY movies. The DVD Drive is for games and software etc. 

 

You've really got me paranoid about my Graphics Card now haha. The founders edition are more expensive than the rest aren't they? Is that why you advised not getting it because it's Overpriced? And... why do people get two Graphics Cards? And do you know if I'll be able to install another one and maybe another internal SSD card in the future with my PC case?

Many thanks to both of your advice. 

 

I'll download all the tools available and work out how to make the mods run smoothly!

@Deadman: That last paragraph hurt my head trying to get around it haha! You had me until Modkit lol. 

 

I'm still not completely understanding the Creation Club thing for Skyrim. Looks like a commercialised version of modding.
