Description

This machine took me a while to build and cost me some sweet dosh. My only regret is that I didn't get a 980. I will be using the machine for games, editing videos, editing photos, and programming. It runs perfectly so far. I have windows 10 on my SSD and it starts up extremely fast. This is the best computer I've had so far in my life(even comparatively). I'm also surprised I was actually able to put it together on my own. Hardest part was putting in the CPU cooler. That was really awkward. Had to watch what my hands were touching at all times.

This is my sixth personal computer(including portable personal computers) even though it says XVI at the top. I started at X.

You aren't actually gaming on that 900p monitor, right?

If your monitor is doing less than 1440p resolution, and you're not itching to play Crysis 3 at insane settings, then the 980 would be overkill. Aside from that, nice build!

But I have a 970 and a 1440p Monitor and I can play most games I have on Ultra/High with AA off at 60+ FPS

Sorry, just saw the 1600x900 monitor, and thought, "Not my first choice, but whatever. Why does he want a 980 for that?" If the 980 is really calling to you, it's your money, not mine.

I didn't mean for my comment to be harsh if that's how it came across, I was just saying that the 970 is a great card for the price and can handle most things thrown at it :)

No worries, it's not like I could hear how you said it or anything. For 1440p, the GTX 970 is capable, but the 980 is more capable :)... too bad it's $100-$200 more. If your card didn't come with such a good factory overclock, that would have been my recommendation to get the best performance for the money.

That is very true, I got the MSI Gaming 970 (I don't over clock my GPU's as I always get crashes) as it was all I wanted to afford and at the time but I was playing at 1080p when I got the GPU and then upgraded to 1440p after lots of research and I was not disappointed

I mean in the long run it would have been better. That was a really old monitor I had.
