    Could not think of where to post this so here is good

    I'm in the planning stages of a new (Over Kill) system for gaming and was curious as to what is being used to create ToA?

    How many gigs does is the entire island and all assets occupy ?
    How many processor cores can the game put into use ?
    What will be the max video resolution supported ?

    I'm very sorry on the delay to answer! We hosted all of our alpha testing, including the stress testing, on Brax's computer. His specs are:

    CPU: Intel I7 7700 @3.60GHz

    GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB

    RAM: 8GB 2133 DDR4

    HDD: SSD 2TB

    Thanks for the responses..
    After the lightning strike cooked my old system I was able to salvaged 1 GPU and half of the ram, and cobbled that together with some other parts I had in use for other things.

    CPU: i5 750 @ 2.67 Ghz (from my CNC milling machine)

    GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti (has a flicker at times it was the only one that did not get totaly fried)

    Ram: 6GB

    HDD: WD VelociRaptor 250 GB

    For my new system I'm gathering parts for a top end workstation/gaming build.

    CPU: i9-7980XE

    GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti (x2) New units

    RAM: 64GB likely will go the full 128GB

    HDD: Samsung 970 EVO NVMe m.2 1TB set in RAID (x4) already have 2 of them on my desk.

    Just going to say... SLI doesn't have great support in most games, to the point that even some AAA games even run worse on SLI than if they were run on a single video card.

    When you're already looking at getting the 1080Ti (which is already overkill for most tasks), you should ask yourself: what is the purpose of getting a second top-of-the-line GPU, and does it warrant adding another $1000 to your machine's price tag?
