Yes, you read that headline correctly - Terry Crews is really getting into PC gaming.

In fact, the former NFL Linebacker-turned-acting legend has even declared himself a member of the 'PC Master Race', which is an obscure reference to Reddit's PC gaming subreddit, /r/PCMasterRace. In a video posted to Instagram yesterday afternoon, Crews confirmed that he bought - with his own money, mind - all the components to build his own gaming PC.

By the looks of his specs, he's got a beast on his hands. Crews' PC will pack a NVIDIA GEForce GTX 1080 and a Corsair H100i v2 70.7 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler, not to mention some very high-end peripherals to go along with it.

Crews went on, explaining that he plans on building the PC with his son and that he'll be playing pretty soon. The question is, of course, is what game is Terry Crews going to play?

XCOM 2 is a pretty good starting point, but you've also got the upcoming Civilization VI and Star Citizen is always on the horizon. There's always Skyrim, of course, and the endless amount of mods for that and you've got Fallout 4 too.

World of Warcraft, sure, you could play that but it's a bit stale at this stage. Could go old-school, go for something like Starcraft or Quake III? Who knows. He's got endless possibilities.

Terry Crews getting into PC gaming. Maybe he likes all that PPPOOOWWWWEERRRRRRR.
