Runs anything and everything flawlessly. It runs Skyrim on max settings plus many .ini tweaks and texture/mesh/content mods and it just eats everything up. I have yet to find anything to slow this monster down.

Cool build! How are you liking those headphones?

thomasf94 [2 Builds] 1 point 10 months ago

My first build had that exact same case and psu!

Nice looking build. +1

I really like the build and the color scheme and the gaming peripherals are nice too. pretty sure thats an IPS monitor which I actually prefer for gaming, the response times aren't as good but visually the colors are just stunning :) great job! +1

Edit: Check out tftcentral you can download professionally calibrated settings for your IPS monitor or manually change its settings with those provided on the site. looks much better then the factory calibration http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/articles/icc_profiles.htm

Nice build! PSU should be a beauty, have the 850 black and has been a dream. You should buy some sleeved extensions in white for the gpus and MB, would really enhance the look. +1

remove the bottom drive cage if possible, better airflow +1 nice setup!

Sick build, that tower cooler really sets it off!

TooGood [1 Build] 1 point 8 months ago

Nice! Do you plan to OC that CPU further? I'd personally keep it at 4.2-4.4 for daily gaming, and then just kick it up as high as it'd go for benchmarks.

Any reason why two 760's opposed to one 780 that you could add a second to always in the future?

FlyinRyan [1 Build] 0 points 10 months ago

If he doesn't plan on upgrading in the future, two 760s are more powerful than a single 780

Gregfx [1 Build] -1 points 10 months ago

Not sure if that's completely true. The only reason i could see behind 2 760s is if he wanted to have multiple monitors.

jaredt [1 Build] -2 points 10 months ago

2 760's are barely faster than a 780. Like the difference is in the range of not being able to see it. Maybe 2fps at the most.

Gregfx [1 Build] 0 points 10 months ago

are two 760s really faster than a 780? Since someone told me a while back that 1 770 is faster than two 760s.

can some one clarify? I may need to grab another 760 :p

Thekingisbeast [1 Build] 3 points 10 months ago

Who ever told you that doesn't know what he's talking about or he must be trolling. Having 2 760 sli doubles the performance, but requires more power. 760 sli is even better than an Titan. So yea, of course it's better than the gtx 780.

Gregfx [1 Build] 1 point 10 months ago

sweet. I have a 650w PSU and i only need around 300w to run my system.

another question: would having two SLIs be beneficial without multi monitor setup? since i'm still looking for more monitors that i like..

TooGood [1 Build] 1 point 8 months ago

Little late to reply, but it really depends on the single monitor. For example, one card @1080p is not going to really benefit from another, but at 1440p 60Hz, you would definitely see a performance increase. I don't know how much with those cards, as I am kind of a fan of AMD, but I would suggest looking at benchmarks and seeing where you want to go. Hope I helped!

TooGood [1 Build] 1 point 8 months ago

Well, not exactly double. It's more like 100% and 35-60% depending.
