Description

Been gaming and editing on HP office pc for 6 years, finally got the money to complete my build. I mainly use it for gaming and adobe creative cloud. Setup was smooth. The NZXT Kraken x61 was easier to install then I thought. Gonna upgrade my video card soon, only got this one cause it was free from a friend. Any Suggestions or criticism will be appreciated!!

I have a GTX 1070 and I think it's all the power I need for a good while. I game at 1440p and this does just fine maxed out in all my games like Overwatch, Witcher 3, Arkham Knight, and GTA V. So at 1080p it should kill any game you throw at it.

that card is much overkill for 1080p, i hae a 980ti and a 1440p monitor, i can max out any game and still are above 60 fps. i´m not saying you should buy a 980ti, but a 1060 i think would be more suitable for 1080p

I agree with Batman if you have the power and you are looking to spend less than the 1070 price tag though the 480 is a good card or if your waiting the 1060 will be an amazing budget card with some insane specs.

I like your build but I think you may have a PSU that is overkill for your build. As far as what GPU to suggest it may depend upon the games you play and your budget. A little more information on that and the folks here will be all over you while making great suggestions. Perhaps posting that question in the FORUMS would be best. You should have this beast for quite some time.

        ENJOY !!

I plan on doing a very similar build. How is the noise level from the fans and pump?

I actually get between 70-90 fps in GTA V on my 1070 at 1440p maxed out. I think GTA V is a CPU intensive game so my 6800k probably helps out a lot.

I would love to BS you and say I did all those settings and got 60+ fps lol but I won't. You're right. I got an average of probably 20-21fps. It's because of the frame scaling. However, use the same settings but turn off frame scaling, go into nvidia control panel under 3d settings and turn on DSR 2x native resolution (I have a 1440p monitor so this would make it 4k DSR) then restart the game and change the resolution to higher than your monitor then try it. It's the same process as frame scaling but it's not done by the game. I got a high of 47 fps and an average of about 35 fps. However it is using a little over 6GB of VRAM and your 980Ti's only have 6GB so I'm not sure how well it would work on your it give it a try and play around with it. The game is definitely playable "maxed" out. :)
