Description

new titan x pascal and x34 predator My little helper wanted to open the new gpu and was happier than anything. The box that came with he monitor is now his "house" which he shares at times with his sister.

I was thinking of dong 1080 SLI but then would have the annoying part of some games scale better than others and some don't' work at all. Then I also sat down and figured out that a single Titan X pascal was cheaper than 2 1080 EVGA Hyrbids with taxes and shipping (around 322 bucks CDN less) I do plan on liquid cooling the titan, the stock cooler on the titan X pascal is not a great cooling solution for it you rally need a custom fan curve which gets rather noisy.... 1500 CDN gpu and Nvidia tosses on a crap cooling solution I was disappointed in that. All round great upgrade I can actually see things with the nice new monitor but my god that stand is overkill.

Part Reviews

CPU

First time in since the slot style cpu I have used INTEL, I always like overkill :P 4.4ghz no issues and its undervolted my my motherboard and stable

Motherboard

I got tired of ASUS motherboards, 3 horrible times I tried them 3 times I have had huge issues.. back to good ol Gigabyte, I woudl recommend this board or the gaming 3 even

Memory

RAM is RAM now a days pretty much to me as long as it has heatspreaders and lifetime warranty I will give it a shot

Storage

its fast and does the job

Video Card

the stock cooler is crap on the reference designed nvidia gpus unless you need the blower style fan

Case

Only real gripe I have is with he "basement" part its hard to hook stuff up with larger hands

Monitor

Pros: Awesome Picture quality, 100Hz is really nice, Gsync is a nice touch, Stand is solid (you can knock someone out with it or worse)

Cons: The price, The buttons, The menu for the adjustments, Stand size

If you can get it cheaper than the 1600 CDN do it, either way rally rally nice monitor

Keyboard

it does the job.. the wrist rest is too small for me though sadly. the software is a nightmare but work. overall i am enjoying my first mechanical keyboard

Mouse

first wireless mouse and the only thing I can even suggest is make it wider for larger hands and or maybe a removable battery. Overall my favorite mouse I have owned

Headphones

Destroys my old Logitech g930's that I had and both lasted me around 16 months. The price was worth it no more damn cahrge cable, such a smart idea

Nice build!

What are your thoughts on SSD? Will you add one in the future?

bad_eyes submitter 1 Build 1 point 38 months ago

Not important really to me, I look at it more what is more important, frame rate or load time. to me I choose frame rate, but I do intend on getting a SSD eventually. Maybe even another 290x (same one I have now) and a bigger power supply.
