My gaming setup

by jjoner

Description

My gaming setup capable of running nearly any game you need at Ultra 1440p

Part Reviews

CPU

Very fast for the cost and good for 1080p 60 fps video rendering with high end software (gpu acceleration required).

CPU Cooler

Keeps my 4790k at 30 degrees idle and 50 under load and overclocked to 4.9 GHZ. Make sure you have a HUGE case though.

Motherboard

Good budget board. Overclocking isnt amazing but for 110 its really good.

Memory

Hard to get set up. Wouldnt run at 2400 with XMP enabled with a 4790k@4.9GHZ.

Memory

Overpriced but good for most uses.

Storage

REALLY overpriced but good performance.

Storage

Not the fastest out there but amazing deal for only 60 dollars.

Storage

Good storage for a good price.

Video Card

Outperforms a stock 970 by a mile. Amazing looking cooler too.

Case

The ease of use is subpar for the price but still really good.

Power Supply

Dont know what to say its a power supply.

Monitor

AMAZING deal for a 144hz monitor. Fully adjustable stand with tilt/rotation/height adjustments.

Keyboard

This thing has survived so much abuse. I think i might have grew a new species of fungus under the WASD keys.

Mouse

Its razer it breaks fast. Good while it lasted and really good price.

Headphones

Yup, amazing headset.

I'm curious to know if you realize that the Nvidia reference 970 is stock. It can't outperform a stock 970 because it is a stock 970. Even with a decent OC, it's still considered the base model. Also, which of these monitors is the 1440p? There's 2 listed and they're only 1080p monitors.
