It was nice going from my first laptop to my wife's new one. Who knew slow starts, lag and random crashes are not normal?
Everyone in the game was trying to tell me it was.

The computer is one I built myself. Asus ROG Strix B350F gaming mother board, Ryzen 5 2600G processor, started with 16 GB memory, two 8GB sticks, so 16 GB dual channel, and the primary hard drive (only one that is hooked up at the moment) is a 480GB solid state drive. Also, this one has no Wi-Fi, so it is hardwired to the router.

I had the graphics at the standard setting for a new install, which is very pretty and smooth, even using the processor's on-board graphics and my 15 year old LCD monitor. I went from regularly sitting and loading for anywhere from 1 to 5 minutes AFTER the match started to getting to the map loading screen with the start button already lit up. I sat in game waiting for 40 seconds for the timer to count down. Best part is that there were no lag-pauses anytime a ship near me died, or launched or got hit by torpedoes.

I am, needless to say, happy.
Glad you got it running. 16gigs of ram is a good start. I run a gtx 1060, 480gb ssd, AMD black edition 8 core processor, msi 970 gaming motherboard. Runs anything I throw at it really well. Plus now you can get discord and we can chat in game.

And that's all it is. This board can handle up to 64 gig, but I chose to spend my limited funds on the processor and SSD drive for now and split the memory to two 8G sitcks. The alternative would have been a single 16gig stick, this way I get more processor and dual channel.

I still need a mic. The headset I used to use for gaming chat won't work on this computer because it doesn't have Bluetooth capability.
