Greetings All,

This is my very first post, so please forgive me if I've posted this in the wrong area.  Please feel free to move it if that's the case.

Well, I've got a NIB MSI GV62 8RD-200 15.6" Full HD Performance Gaming Laptop PC i5-8300H, GTX 1050Ti 4G, 8GB RAM, 16GB Intel Optane Memory + 1TB HDD, Win 10 64 bit, Black, Steelseries Red Backlit Keys arriving today, and I couldn't be more excited!

This is my first MSI product, and I'm reaching out to you for some beginners guidance.

I'm wanting to know if there's anything that I'll need to do before I get started, ie: update drivers, install/update software like Flash or the like, install specific MSI software, etc.....

Please know that I'm not a hardcore gamer, so if you reply, please don't use big words. hehehe

To be honest, this is my first 'gaming' pc, so I'm a little intimidated.  Does anyone have any words of wisdom or advice that might help me avoid 'newbie' mistakes?

Thank you alll so much for anything you can do.  I'm looking forward to getting my new toy, and can't wait to learn more.

Have a great day & happy gaming....,
Boofette :)

It's really great to see a guy who's so excited to have an MSI laptop!
And I guess, depends on your laptop, you can only play League of Legends and the most popular game right now - Fortnite.
I do hope you enjoy the experience that this laptop will bring you!
Have Fun!

Hi Whitecat,

Thanks for the kind words.  My computer arrived and I took lots of Unboxing photos that I'll post tomorrow.  Because my previous laptop was so ill-equipped, I haven't played any of the 'big' games, so when I say I'm SUPER new at this gaming stuff, I'm not kidding.  I'm sure I'll have to start with something easy so I can ease in to it, but, one has to start somewhere, right?

Oh, and btw....I'm female.....although I wasn't offended by being called a guy at all, so no worries.  Just wanting to keep it real.

I'll stop here so I don't get off topic, but thanks again for your reply.

Boofette :)

The 1050Ti isn't the top-of-the-line card but should be able to handle most games at a playable quality. What games are you a fan of?

The new six-core Intel Coffee Lake mobile Core i7 gives user CPU abilities that are on par with all but a premium desktop.
