Hi Guys. First I want to thank this site and all of its members. This is my second PC that I built. My first one was seven years ago,so I was out of the loop for some time. This site really brought me up to date with components and know how.
This PC is mostly for gaming and everyday use. I do mess around a little with particleIllusion 3.0 and other video effects programs . I do realize that this build is probable a bit overkill. I look at it like this, I work hard ,make a decent buck and wanted to do something nice for myself. I originally had a budget of $2000 but that went down the shitter really quick! When I started looking at components it snowballed and snowballed fast! But Like I said,its what I wanted.
When I first saw the CORSAIR WHITE 760T , I knew that this was the case I was going to use for my build. I love the full window. I liked the white color but I thought it need a little pizzazz! I thought it need some red,and maybe some silver. Then I was thinking. How about aluminum diamond plate? I got to figure out how to incorporate it into the build!
I went with the ASUS MAXIMUS VII HERO mother board. Now I’m not a big overclocker but I do fiddle around with it here and there. Plus the option is there if I want to get serious with it down the road. I love how you can navigate around the bios with your mouse. The color matched perfect with what I planned my build to look like.
I’ve read nothing but good things about the MSI Twin Frozr GTX 980. The chrome heat pipes matched up perfect with the diamond plate. That sealed the deal right there! I knew I was getting the ASUS ROG SWIFT MONITOR. Everything I read is that you need 980s SLI to get the full potential out of this monitor. This monitor is amazing. The picture is incredible. 1440p 144hz G sync . I’m getting 100+ fps no matter what game I throw at it . With the settings maxed. It’s really a cool gaming experience.
The CORSAIR DOMINATOR PLATINUM RAM was just too badass to pass up. I know I paid a little more then I should’ve for ram but its definitely quality. It went perfect with my color scheme.
Now I know I’ll probably catch some flak for the SOUND CARD. I’ve always had a dedicated sound card in my pcs and like the quality . I have a decent set of 5.1 speakers. I have them in all four corners of the room. I love the expanded sound ! Nothing like bullets whizzing over your head.
But anyway, this is my build. I hope you guys enjoy the pictures. Thanks for looking. Brin
