Description

Actually built in February 2016.

My first "real" build. Worked like a charm instantly. I expected something not to work right, since it was my first custom computer I built, but it powered up beautifully. I can't express how happy I am with it. However, I regret getting the Asus GTX 980 Ti 6GB Matrix instead of the EVGA GTX 980, simply because I don't like how the Asus 980 looks through the window, and I love the green LED logo of the EVGA. Not that it's a big deal, but I really admire beauty and aesthetics. I'm drawn like a bug to pretty lights. As for those annoying fan wires, I am waiting for my fan cord extensions to arrive so I can hide the wires.

I wrote an article on this build on my site here http://www.techstuffonly.com/snonite-my-first-gaming-computer/

What is that monitor? That is a unique resolution to be running at. either way, great build

I have a triple monitor set up with one of those monitors and it does seem super off. Luckily you can't blatantly see the pixels with mine, they kind of blur together. which probably isn't good and it doesn't look as crisp but every time I notice pixels on any of my monitors it makes me want to throw up

blockbuster4664 1 Build 2 points 19 months ago

Maybe a new monitor is in order then, like how I'm getting a 1080p monitor to replace the 1600x900 trash I have now

steelenoose 1 point 19 months ago

Have you bought it yet? I don't want to ween you away from 1080, 16:9, but after having a couple for awhile now (bout a year maybe 2) and I find myself annoyed by the pixels. If I could go back, I'd get me some cheap 1440s 60-144hz

blockbuster4664 1 Build 1 point 19 months ago

I have a 1060 3GB so I'm pretty much stuck on 1080p, I'm getting either a high performance 144hz one or a 2560x1080 75hz because widescreen. I don't have room in my budget for a 1440p monitor either because i only have around 200$ to spend

It's a Dell E2210 22.0". I got the monitor around 2009 or 2010. It was the best monitor I could find in stores at the time, so I chose that one. Eventually I want to get a 4k TV to use as my monitor. But I'm OK with it, since I still use it conventionally, at a desk, which is pretty comfortable.

blockbuster4664 1 Build 1 point 19 months ago

I didn't know the 980 Ti could handle 4K, good to know, but either way it's still an okay resolution, is better than 720 or 900p

s0s submitter 1 Build 1 point 19 months ago

Wikipedia via google said

"4K UHD is a resolution of 3840 pixels × 2160 lines (8.3 megapixels, aspect ratio 16:9) and is one of the two resolutions of ultra high definition television targeted towards consumer television, the other being 8K UHD which is 7680 pixels × 4320 lines (33.2 megapixels). 4K resolution - Wikipedia"

That said, on the GTX 980 TI spec page: http://www.geforce.com/hardware/desktop-gpus/geforce-gtx-980-ti/specifications it says it can handle a max res of 5120x3200 so I don't know what that would convert to.

Hm cool,

s0s submitter 1 Build 1 point 19 months ago

My bad, I updated my monitor because the model number was wrong.

Thank you very much! :D I really hate those small fan wires, though. I'm going to get around to fixing that soon. It drives me crazy :P
