Description

I chose the name WinterWidow because of the relationship between The Winter Soldier and Black Widow in Marvel comics.

Watch out for versions 3-5/6 which will include upgrading SSD, Case, GPU, RAM, and CPU cooling/GPU cooling!

Parts

  • CPU: Bought at full price on Newegg.
  • CPU Cooler: Custom liquid cooling loop, belongs to a friend but he is letting me use it to get better cooling since I can OC.
  • Motherboard: Bought on sale at Newegg.
  • GPU: Temporary until I can buy 1(or 2) GTX 1070(s) or 1080(s).
  • Case: Borrowed from a friend until I can upgrade.
  • PSU: Bought from Newegg.
  • HDD&SSD: HDD came from a laptop which was upgraded to budget SSD. SSD is from a friend, using as temporary boot drive until I can upgrade
  • RAM: Budget DDR4 Memory running at 2600MHz
  • Keyboard: Temporary budget keyboard until I can afford mechanical.
  • Mouse: Bought at half price from a friend due to sleeving being missing from cable.
  • Headset: A trusted friend bought a pair and recommended them, got them and don't regret it!

I don't have Overwatch sadly. I plan on benchmarking in a few AAA games like GTA V or FO4, maybe ARK Survival. There are updates to come on not only this but later versions of Selene.

Me too. I still haven't gotten around to my benchmarks but now that I have better cooling and airflow I think my GPU will do at least a little bit better in games.

That 2GB extra of VRAM is very worth. :D Noice.

It's a surprisingly good GPU for it's age. I'm just lucky to have a friend nice enough to let me get his old GPU as a temporary since he's upgrading.
