Twitch superstar Dr Disrespect has shocked his fans by revealing his brand new PC live on stream, with a flashy trailer and a hefty price tag to boot. 

The variety content creator has a whopping 4.3 million followers on the streaming platform, at the time of writing, and members of the famed Champions Club will be wondering how they too can get on the same level as the self-professed best video gamer in the world.

Well, during a broadcast on May 20, they were given some details on how to catch up with the top dog as Doc showed off a number of parts for his new build.

The Doc revealed his new PC during a recent Twitch stream and it looks amazing.

As ever, fans couldn’t help but think about how much it will have cost to assemble. After all, we could all do with a bit more speed, violence, and momentum in our gaming lives.

So, while he never gave an exact figure during the stream, we thought we would do some digging and put together an estimated cost of the gaming computer – and it’s much higher than the average player’s, that’s for sure!

How much is Doc’s PC?

Using PC Part Picker, we calculated an estimate that should be pretty accurate. The CPU alone, AMD Ryzen Threadripper 39990x, will set you back a staggering $3,500, which shows you the type of ballpark the Two-Time is playing in. In total, taking into account the Aventum X case, Double RTX 2080Ti’s, and everything else included – you’re looking at about $10,000 for the entire thing.

“I wish I was prepared to show this,” he said after revealing a few photos of it, before playing a promotional trailer for everybody to see. He also posted it to Twitter, as seen below.

It’s difficult to work out the exact price, as there is a custom waterloop and we don’t know what power supply is running it all.  But for something like this, a power supply of at least 1500W would be needed, and other extras will mount onto the price as well.

Dr Disrespect’s PC specs

  • CPU: AMD Threadripper 3990X 2.9 GHz 64-Core
  • MOBO: Asus ROG ZENITH II EXTREME ALPHA EATX sTRX4
  • GPU: 2x NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti 11GB
  • RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws V 256 GB (8 x 32 GB) DDR4
  • SSD: 2x Samsung 970 Evo 2TB NVME
  • Case: Aventum X
  • Case Fan: 14x Corsair ML140 PRO RGB

It was put together for him by Digital Storm, a boutique computer manufacturer based in the United States, and he wanted to thank them for their work during the broadcast.

He said: “Digital Storm, firm handshakes. I mean the craftsmanship. When I took it out the box, I said… Who am I kidding? I’m like a little kid. Any sort of tech I take out of the box I’m gonna be excited but man, I was really, really excited about this one. Craftsmanship is kind of nutty.”

While that might sound like a hefty price to play for messing around on a few video games, it could be argued that nobody really does it better than Dr Disrespect in terms of stream quality, production, and excitement.

None of that would be made possible to livestream without the best of the best unit in place to pull it off. So, he’s went out and got himself exactly that.

Sodapoppin & The Kittens explain why they’ve quit OfflineTV’s Rust server

Chance ‘Sodapoppin’ Morris and Vigors, two key members of the Kitten’s group on the OfflineTV Rust server, are taking a break from the RP server. 

Even though Rust was first released in 2013, it’s experienced incredible levels of popularity in recent weeks thanks to some of Twitch’s biggest streamers.

They’ve, mostly, been flocking to the OfflineTV servers – The Badlands and The Divide – for a bit of roleplaying and PVP action, and it’s given fans some incredible moments. 

While some players have called it out as a phase, and are expecting streamers to move on in one fell swoop, they haven’t just yet. However, a few names are starting to depart from the server, even if it’s just for a break.

Creator’s have flocked to OfflineT’sV RP server ‘The Divide’.

The main two that have departed so far are Sodapoppin and Vigors. They make up part of the Kittens group on the OfflineTV RP server, where they finish every sentence by saying meow. 

Sodapoppin hinted at quitting a few weeks back when the OfflineTV server first got going, but didn’t, and moved over to the new server when more creators where invited. 

He hasn’t played Rust – on stream, anyway – since January 17, saying he’s just not in the mood. “I don’t feel like streaming Rust at atm,” he tweeted on January 18 after a creator skin for his group went live. “I streamed it for 2 hours, but they now made it a drop for mostly everyone’s channel since I have no interest in streaming Rust which is awesome, just filling y’all in.”

Vigors echoed Sodapoppin’s tweet a few hours later, hinting at more members of the Kittens taking a break from Rust.

“Our dumb little group had a fun as f**k time on the rust server but we deciding to take a break for now, he posted. “Met a f**k ton of dope people and am glad I got to experience this last month. Meow.”

In his day not playing Rust, Sodapoppin has still been streaming, but he and others have moved on to different multiplayer games. He’s even made a few returns to VRChat, even getting his Dad to experience it. 

The group could very well return to Rust at some point in the future, but that’ll be up to them. Who knows, everyone else might have moved on to something else by the time they’re ready.
