Description

This was my first completely from the ground up build. My aim was to build a “do it all” machine that is air cooled, full featured (pcie 4, USB 3.1, RTX) and reasonably futureproof (5+ year life) .

i used to have it. For the time that i had it, it was wonderful. I haven't been able to find another monitor of the same res, refresh rate and curved, for this price

I like it, not very color accurate, but it's snappy and responsive. No glare, and the curve is perfect

Yes I know that, however, the reason I questioned it was because you are using an Nvidia graphics card and I heard that we need a G-sync monitor or atleast one that is compatible for screen stability while gaming.

I'm pretty sure Nvidia Cards are compatible with FreeSync, as long it is a DISPLAYPORT cable, than your good. However, this is what I know, it may be wrong, but this is what I believe.

Yeah, I read that Nvidia worked with several companies to make it compatible for their cards. What monitor would you recommend for rtx cards if we were to use those types ?

gsync isnt necesarry at all. only if youre playing 4k games at max settings, and a few other rare cases. It's something you only need if you're struggling with frames. Some people swear by it, but competitive-wise, gsync wont let you climb a single point higher than your own skill. It's a feature, not a requirement. edit: it also drastically increases the price.

Oh, I'm not into 4k games, just games like wow, f1. I was looking at some Asus monitors but they have mixed reviews, some screen bleeds etc, so I'm seeking alternatives.

for wow, its is NEVER necessary. You could run max graphics and still have room and thermals to spare. As for f1, unless you're gaming at super high graphics settings, or as i mentioned before, 4K, you won't have any issues. What card do you have/are planning on getting?

It's not an approved by nvidia. From what I can tell there is a very subtile backlight flicker if the game dips below the 40fps range under the extreme response setting

On the default setting I haven't seen an issue

People who want or need the features in pro know it.

I hate to say as it sounds rude, it but its one of those "if you have to ask, it's not for you" thing

Congratulations on a very nice build. Did the cable for the USB-C connector on the case reach connector on the motherboard? Any problems so far or things you would differently?

  • 5 months ago

USB 3.1 was a little challenging to route, other than that (cable is a bit shorter than everything else)

cable management is good overall. Very easy to build.

I especially like showcasing some of the cleaner cable runs between the different back covers. If you are using individual sleeved cables, it's a sharp look.

That said, I don't think it will look great with extensions, so you are going to want to go for full replacements if you plan to do that
