Description

This was the first build I have ever done, this was a birthday gift from myself to myself. All parts listed were bought on the original date except for the MSI GTX 970 Gold Edition, which used to be an MSI GTX 770.

Primary Uses- Gaming about 100% of the time. League of Legends, Counter Strike: Global Offensive, my steam also has 300+ games that I play every so often.

I also do video editing and 3d rendering for fun.

Name- Many people think it is weird that I named my computer... I named her after Lara Croft from Tomb Raider, this is because Lara Croft is very Shmexy and I think that my build is very visually appealing too, such as she is.

Note: I like the spelling of the name 'Laura' since it is more appealing to me.

Monitor- (Edit) The monitor that I use is an ips 25" Lg 21:9 monitor, rocking 2560x1080.

Future Upgrades- A 240 SSD for faster boot times and storage(completed) Additional 8gb ram(completed) i7-4790k(Intended to happen in the next few months) Another MSI Gold 970 for Sli(Not sure about this one yet)

I liked the spelling 'Laura' more but I accidentally wrote her name like that too

Dont upgrade to an i7, you already have one of the best processors for gaming.

16GB of RAM is overkill for gaming. I would invest in either a monitor (can't tell what yours is by the photo) and headphones. I personally own AKG K712 Pros and absolutely love them. Obviously, there are plenty of options around. From Beyerdynamic, Sennheiser, AKG, Audio Technica.

It looks like he's rocking a 1440p monitor, no point of upgrading that at the moment. And if he does want to upgrade the monitor it would be into a ROG swift... $1000 :'(

I would probably upgrade the ssd first (most noticeable performance improvement), then the ram. Another GTX 970 would make sence ONLY if you want to go 4k or 1440p 120hz, and that's up to you.

when u upgrade to ssd I definitely recommend the mushkin chronos 480gb, its really fast for the price at 190$$. I was lucky and only paid 170$ for mine when it was on sale
