So this all started because I got pissed off about the Xbox One... And I've been wanting to build a PC for years. This is the first build I've ever done and I'd say it went pretty well. Today is 9/16/13 and I've just finished the build this weekend. I'll be adding some more pics and videos as well as overclocking in the weeks to come. This PC is just too sick. I did the bright green limited edition UV reactive tubing by Primochill to remember my Xbox roots ;) Leave any comments or questions.
I played some Planetside 2 and Battlefield 3 on it this weekend and netted these results:
PS2- All setting on Ultra- 100-120 FPS
BF3- All setting on Ultra- 100-140 FPS easy, spikes quite higher (even though my monitor can't display them)
Edit 9/18/13: Holy Sheet! Tons of comments and feedback in a day guys. I didn't even think anyone would be reading this. Just to add some more detail: I know this is overkill, it's not meant to be compared to the Xbox One in any way :P Just my joke with my buddies. Also, the BenQ monitor is a beast. Some of this equipment like the BenQ and Astros I already had from my gaming setup. I also built a custom desk for this setup which I'll show you in some pics this weekend. Thanks for the feedback and warm response to the site! I found this site EXTREMELY valuable when doing this build.
