    I actually can most likely not make the weekend after this one. @Utwig: We could play a couple of 3+2 at lichess.

    I'm on chess.com but I can also make lichess account. You're a better player than me, I have around 1300-1400 blitz rating and ~1250 bullet rating on chess.com. I'm up for it.

    Speaking of gaming:

    I hadn't had a proper gaming rig since 2006: Parhelia + dual Athlons overclocked to 3200+ or T42p with Radeon 9600. But I'm thinking of cobbling together something in 700 EUR range for Christmas holidays.

    I added a Geforce 1070 to my Intel 4970k and use it for gaming. We don't play the latest games, and with the ones we play it manages surprisingly well. The Witcher I in full quality, Close To The Sun in full quality, ...
    There are often very nice giveaways on Epic games (every week, but sometimes they really have nice games).

    The card I got was the MSI ITX-1070, as my case depth is limited and that card got good reviews... and is quiet (even shuts down the fan when not needed). Very happy with it: of course I can hear it when it spins up, but that only happens in some game situation and then still it is not that much louder than my projector (possibly because that one is closer-by, but it is what your hear where you sit that matters).... Now of course the 1070 is already quite weak, but I'm nicely surprised how well it manages.

    It's been a while that I was on Chess.com, I think I am in the 1500 there. Your bullet is better than mine.

    Try lichess. It is a very clean interface, tranquil I would say. Also, ratings are weaker there so I am consistently in the 1900

    I know lichess because two Russian streamers I watch sometimes use lichess.
