Just a quick question about PC performance/lifespan.

I was just wondering what you guys think of hardware stress due to gaming. Simply put, do you think running your pc maxed out vs dropping graphics settings to reduce cpu/gpu usage has any effect on your PCs overall lifepan? Or is the effect basically unnoticable?

  1. Unnoticeable. At lower settings the framerate is higher, so the actual work the components perform is not reduced as much as you might think.
  2. Well I cap my fps whenever possible. try not to go over 60. Because of this theory. lol.

    Agreed, unnoticeable. Unless the system is running hot or over heating. As heat damages electronics. And dust makes it worse, even a system idling is drawing the dust in.
