Description

Built this back in January, 2014, and since then, endless things have been added to make this an ultimate powerhouse. Next on the list is the graphics card. This computer can run all games on ultra at decent frame rates (60+ except for a few) on a 1920 by 1080 display. [Note] The pictures show an AJAZZ Ray Eagle 2400DPI mouse but since then, I have upgraded to a Logitech G502. The AJAZZ is now for my laptop. By the way, the laptop is an HP ENVY m6-1158ca. The small screen in the middle is a 7 inch Blackberry Playbook tablet with a quick charging dock.

Um, last pick shows you have 3 mice? Do you have 3 hands? I don't think so... :)

Tyreathian 1 Build 7 points 37 months ago

No serious gamer has only one mouse.

_Pheonix_ 1 Build 2 points 37 months ago

Sunnix8476 submitter 1 Build 1 point 37 months ago

Exactly correct :)

What is that cool looking ROG screen in between the monitors? An OC panel? Cool setup! +1

TheZer0 2 points 37 months ago

I wanna know too :c

Sheddemon 1 Build 2 points 37 months ago

I think its just a tablet on its docking station/

Sunnix8476 submitter 1 Build 1 point 37 months ago

Yeah, its a Blackberry Playbook (pretty damn good). I just use it to check my twitter feed. Got it for around 140 bucks.

Sheddemon 1 Build 1 point 37 months ago

I used to have one of them until the charging port on it broke. Now I have some crappy Android replacement.

Sunnix8476 submitter 1 Build 1 point 37 months ago

You can replace them by cracking it open but if that is a hassle, you can just buy a quick charger which is pretty good, and you can just transfer files via wireless.

+1 for the Audio Technicas!

zaam

IrshaadH 1 Build 1 point 37 months ago

umm, your 760 seems to be running quite hot...

Sunnix8476 submitter 1 Build 1 point 37 months ago

It it overclocked but I didn't remember the clock speeds so I left it as is. I'll update it once I get home.

Ham_sammies 1 point 37 months ago

How do you like those BenQs?

Sunnix8476 submitter 1 Build 1 point 37 months ago

BenQs aren't that bad although color reproduction is lacking and it only has a 60Hz refresh rate. I should have gotten an IPS but hey, TN panels aren't that bad.

DavisTheWalrus 1 Build 1 point 37 months ago

Thought those were two rog swifts in the picture and I was like wut

ManThunder 1 point 37 months ago

how are you running 2 monitors on a 760? whenever i try my computer freezes

Sunnix8476 submitter 1 Build 1 point 37 months ago

I usually game on one and use the other for something else because I don't have a third one ( and if I did, I would need a much better GPU to do Nvidia Surround). The only suggestion I have is to upgrade your driver your drivers.

How do you like the 8350?

Sunnix8476 submitter 1 Build 1 point 36 months ago

The 8350 is pretty good, it's a beast at overclocking and can render pretty well. It is also pretty good at gaming, even at stock, but it runs pretty hot and I wouldn't use the stock cooler at all.

Euphemia -2 points 37 months ago

Why would you get an 8350 for $210? Was the 4670k unavailable?

Mark8008 1 Build 2 points 37 months ago

Well this was built about a year ago and back then they were about $180? When I got mine it was $200 (a year and a half ago).

18hockey 1 Build 2 points 37 months ago

What's wrong with an 8350. Price:Performance ratio is better imo

JPCRacing24 2 Builds 1 point 37 months ago

Just depends on the user. Anyways at 1080p a gamer wouldn't be able to tell much a difference between the i5 and 8350 especially with a 760 GPU.

Sunnix8476 submitter 1 Build 1 point 37 months ago

The 8350 is more overclockable in my opinion. Plus it was cheaper for the performance.

Euphemia 1 point 36 months ago

It seems everyone here misunderstood me. I'm not arguing that the 8350 is incompetent;I meant that considering the 4670k costs $180, it should be the choice for the price range. It would have been cheaper and higher performing. Since I know that Microcenter isn't available everywhere, I mentioned availability.

Sunnix8476 submitter 1 Build 1 point 36 months ago

Yeah, Microcenters don't exist up here in Canada, so we have so solely rely on NCIX, Newegg Canada, Canada Computers, and Tiger Direct. I have failed to mention that I do 3D model a fair bit and video edit too so I guess the extra cores in the 8350 is more beneficial to me.

Euphemia 1 point 36 months ago

In that case, you made the right decision.
