We’re PC enthusiasts. We buy bigger graphics cards to improve our gaming, better audio cards to improve our immersion, and feature-richier gaming peripherals to improve our skill.

Perhaps it’s because I once placed a sword next to my router and called it the “Killer Router” that did it – I’m not sure.
