Coming from an i5-7600K and a GTX1070 (1080p 60hz) this is a huge step up.
Parts that I kept from my old build: - 500GB SSD - 2TB HDD - 650W 80 Plus Gold PSU
I've built this basically for gaming and aesthetics, I know I could've saved some money getting rid of all the rgb nonsense but I just love it. I think it's a really nice way to customize your computer the way you want and you can always change the color scheme if you get bored of it.
I might add three more fans (or an AIO, the Wraith Prism gets the job done but it can be pretty loud) and another 2tb SSD for storing games, since my HDD feels really slow for games now.
Update: - New 2TB SSD. - New fan layout: x3 LL120 top intake, x3 LL120 side exhaust, x3 LL120 bottom intake.
What can I say? This beast can handle any game in 1440p with the usual applications running in the background without any hassle. After adjusting the fan curve, the Wraith Prism is quiet enough even while gaming.
It lacks a usb type-c connector for the front but it's okay.
I bought this sdd to store all my games because my hdd started to feel really slow doing simple tasks like copying or unziping something. This ssd just flies.
I don't need an nvme but it's not that expensive and I didn't want to deal with more cables, also the m.2 port seems kinda wasted with sata.
It has no zero RPM mode for the fans and it can get noisy with the default fan curve, but it's an overall great card for the price I bought it (nearly MSRP).
This case is just gorgeous and really good for cable management, or, better yet, hiding the cables without much hassle.
The colors are just amazing and the ips glow is non existent, I wish it had better contrast but it's not really that bad since I'm used to a basic TN panel so I can live with that, but it's something to have in mind if you already have a good panel. The freesync works perfectly with nvidia cards as you would expect having the G-Sync compatible certification, no flickering or any other issues. I got a VA freesync monitor before this one but I returned it because it had severe flickering at low fps.
They do what they are meant to do without any issues.
The monitor stands today are huge and take up a lot of space. This solves the problem and gives more freedom to place the monitor.
