Description

So this PC has gone through everything. Started out a 800 dollar PC build, then everything changed and I have a completely new PC.

If you would like to see the main part to this build, here it is : https://pcpartpicker.com/b/LX4CmG

Everything in that build is the same as in this, except one, major thing. This build has a GTX 1080.

When I upgraded this PC and put it all together, I built it wanting a Pascal card inside of it. And I did just that. I knew I wanted an aftermarket card cause reference cards are bleh, I'm sorry, "Founder's". I waited and waited to get my hands on a card as stock is very poor at this moment for 1080's. I saw Gigabyte post on their Xtreme facebook page about them going on sale 6/17 @ 6PST, so I took that day and just waited and got one. I was like a little kid in a candy shop when I got it.

The GTX 1080 destroys everything you throw at it, no matter the settings you push it at. Crysis 3, The Witcher 3, DOOM, Battlefield, just completely demolishes everything. Here is a 3DMark FireStrike score of my PC : http://www.3dmark.com/3dm/12728888 AS you can see, pure slaughter.

I'll let you guys see some pictures, Enjoy :) Sorry about the pictures as iPhones are a hunk of junk.

Open to any feedback/criticism you have!

That GPU is looking a little lonely there... Maybe he (or she, no judge) should have a companion? ;P

Overall very solid build, I love how the LED's flow quite well with each other

How's that GPU treating you? Might get it myself so I'd love your personal perspective of it.

The red led case fan is pretty noise, isn't it? But it is very cool.

Great Build Man! Just a question if you dont mind. Im thinking of getting this gpu and im wondering if it will sag or hell break the pcie slot. My mobo is the asus maximus viii hero and it doesnt have the fancy metal thing around the pcie slot like yours do. But an awesome build anyway!!

This is an awesome build! very similar to the one im working on. I'm looking into whether i should get this gigabyte card over the standard EVGA one, my only concern is the size. would two be able to fit into your Gigabyte Gaming 7 mobo? Just in case i was interested in SLI down the road.

my current build. http://pcpartpicker.com/list/P4pLcc

Please ignore my 1000 watt power supply, i got it on sale and couldn't resist.
