Description

I went from a crappy, refurbished, and cheap Alienware R4 into this. I went with the black and red theme, but ended up having some blue in there. The GTX 760 is a card i have had for 2-3 years now and it has done more than anything i need for 1080p. I play League of Legends at 300-400 fps, Dying Light at 60+ ultra settings, and so on. Solid card for now until my upgrade to 1440p. This is my 4th or so PC build and the last one i built was probably 4 or 5 years ago. I know i have crappy pictures, but it was the best i could do with my iPhone.

The 450d case was a case i just fell in love with. Has the all black and modern look i have wanted. It is also 1/3 the weight of that way to heavy Alienware case. The case fits everything perfectly, but hiding the cords in the back started putting some pressure against the back panel and it made it tough to put back on. can easily fit any graphics card and up to 3 radiators if you wanted to. The pretty big Corsair power supply fits good and you can even still mount a 120mm fan down there.

The Asus Maximus VII Formula is such an awesome looking and does everything is should with a breeze. Installing was easy and all the components fit well on the board. People i read had problems installing some stuff, but i seemed to have no problem at all. Probably the main reason i got it is because of the Republic Of Gamers logo that lights up in red. The included wifi and Bluetooth card is a cool bonus. The wifi signal is super strong and feels like it works better than being wired.

The Intel 4790k 4.0Ghz is such a huge upgrade for me. I don't know why but i games 150fps in League of Legends switching for the R4 onto this pc. I already had the 32g of ram and GTX 760 in the R4 and it still made that big of a difference, so it must be the cpu. I have the Corsair H100i hooked up to it also lit up with the red Corsair logo, which makes it look awesome and cools the cpu down to mid 20's at idle. I can play 2 games at once, stream to twitch and watch youtube videos with out any lag.

The EVGA Geforce GTX 760 Superclocked is the only card you need for 1080p. Runs every game perfectly on the highest settings with more than enough FPS. Once i switch to 1440p it will be time to put this card away as it will start lacking the power to keep up. I have had no problems with this card for the years i have had it.

Everything else is pretty much obvious. The ram runs as it should, the Corsair power supply does its job, and the 2 Samsung SSD's run without any problems. The NZXT Hue RGB LED Controller is an awesome touch. Doesn't stick very well, but gives off an awesome light show. It isn't to bright where you want it off and blinds you while on the PC. I highly recommend any of these parts for a build that you want to start, as they are all well made, perform more than i expected, and has so much more potential than i use them for.

This pretty much sums up my build. I love building PC's and wish i could for a living. Leave any feedback and criticism as to what i should do or shouldn't. Thank you for the time you took to read this post and you will see more in the future! I am always looking for people to play games with and i play pretty much all of them.

Microsoft Windows 8.1 - I know how everyone just hates this OS, but i seem to love it. It took my 10-15 minute boot time with windows 7 to a simple 5-10 SECONDS. Now i don't even dread over getting updates since it restarts in 20 seconds.

Why 32gb of RAM??? I have 16 and it is plenty fast. Just curious even though you already had it.

unless he does some serious 1440p 3d video editing that's way overkill

He did say he had the 32gb of ram from before in his description...

What I was trying to say was why not put in 16 and use the other 16 for another build?

I'd suggest setting the parts you already had to $0 to make it more obvious. Not many people read the description, as the comment section more than likely proves (predicting 760 hate/y no 970 whine).

Yeah i realized from these comments that no one saw that i had the ram and 760 already.

Why the. Gtx 780, the gtx 970, has a better price to performance ratio

I don't get why other people hate windows when it has better performance. They could use a desktop shell

Also 32 gigs of ram is overkill for that build

Yeah i had it in the Alienware before this build. Im planning on upgrading the 760 and get some Corsair ram in the next few weeks or so. I have had the 760 for 2-3 years.

Nice build. With a new GPU, this thing will be ready for 1440P easily. Also, good job on the cables, they look pretty clean. Gotta love that 750D. Such a pretty case.

Thank you for the nice comment. It is so hard to photograph a computer. I don't know how these people do it haha. I wanted to get some straight on shots but i kept getting a lot of glare. The 750d is a beautiful case and houses everything nice with half of the size as normal cases.

I said 2/3 years because i am not exactly sure when i got it. I am trying to get a 980 now, then eventually another.
