I am using a Corsair HyperX Cloud Stinger headset together with a cheap USB sound card. Sound quality is good enough, I have zero problems locating gunshots.

Spent the evening yesterday playing the new build on the test server. I am getting excited for the 1.0 build now, the performance on my crappy PC (i7-3930k + RX-470) was significantly better, graphics looked better, vaulting works well and looks nice too, ballistics and vehicle physics are much improved, the map got some improvements. Not entirely sure about all the sound updates, but the music in the menu is at least much more epic now.

I'm looking for a new video card for pubg and other newer games. Hoping to find a cyber Monday deal. What's your guys's recommendations for a sub $200 card?

I would not go sub 200$ when buying a new card I think. I would go Geforce GTX1060 or Radeon RX470 / RX570 as minimum, but those are most likely a bit more than 200$.
If you really have just 200$ to spend I would look second hand, if that is not possible I think your only choice would be the GeForce GTX1050Ti as the AMD offerings below 200$ are not worth it in my opinion.

Gtx 980. That's not a lot of money for a vid card today unfortunately.

The last GTX980Ti I had I sold for $300 used... a reg 980 I think goes for 200-250 right now.

Haven't touched PUBG in a while. How are the recent updates? Is the game a bit more optimized?

I think they have done some minor stuff, but the test server has a bunch of new stuff going on. We should be close to the 1.0 patch soon, can't wait!

Its been a little smoother lately. Still died twice in the last week due to server lag.

V1.0 to be released around Xmas, the feedback from the test servers looks really promising. And apparently Xbox on dec 12th? and they're still undecided if they are going to allow cross platform servers. Not sure if that's a good or bad thing. PC vs console players in a FPS just doesn't go well for the console guys. PC master race.

Really? I thought the feedback was somewhat negative other than vaulting. Also the test servers were having major lag and glitching issues.

From what I saw it was a bunch of unimportant petty changes. Moved **** around on the UI, fonts and sounds changed. New gun looked decent, I thought there was two but I only saw one. Some optic changes. I really dislike how it's different on different guns. If they're gonna do that it should be random as you pick it up.

I do like the new heavily wooded area they added. That is what the map needs more of.

I guess it depends who you listen to. The few streamers I watch besides Doc all seemed to like it, dunno.

Yeah. A lot of those guys were kinda saying the same thing. They didn't mind the updates and changes. But would of rather had the issues fixed and the gameplay optimized.

You're first mistake is watching doc play any game. I used to like him waaaaay back in cod4 days. He gets way to upset at a game that's in alpha.

I picked up a Plantronics Gamecom 788 headset for $20. Even though I'm sure the HyperX is a great value, I've been spending like crazy lately and have to save a few $$$. Also, I picked up an Oculus Rift, so not only is that more money spent, but most of the games I'll be playing from now on won't need a headset anyway. Either way, this headset got really good reviews for the price. The headset is a total game changer! Not only do you hear every footstep, car/house door, etc, it also makes you a lot more aware of your own sound and how to minimize being spotted. Squad also seems pretty fun so far, despite the fact that playing with rando's is annoying and they usually don't communicate or know what's going on.

I bought a 3gb gtx1060 from newegg black friday for 170. Super stoked on it. It runs BF1 on medium/high at 60fps SOLID. Have yet to pick up PUBG.
