This is my primary gaming rig. It also doubles as my home office system & a general every day PC. I originally built my first PC "Father and son" as my gaming rig and decided to upgrade my video card in it from a 270x to a 290. Well one thing led to another and by the time I was done I had a new system (case, processor, GPU, ram, everything but the orange cables and fans are new. I reused the old parts in another build for my nephew.
I love everything about this machine. It is by far the best PC I have ever owned and plays everything I want (I mainly play FPS games like Bioshock, Farcry & Portal - Crysis is next after I finish the third Bioshock) The only thing I may do is try my hand at water cooling just to see if I can get a better OC (at 4.6 now, it can go higher but not stable). I also want to learn how to install a custom water cooler since I think they look so cool but that is long down the road.
I went with A 750 power supply However, think I should have gone higher in the event I wanted to add a 2nd GPU, I will have to cross that bridge when I come to it. Other than that the only other problem was finding parts I liked to keep in line with the orange color scheme so I had to bust out the spray paint a few times.
The NZXT Hue is awesome, you can change it into almost any color and blinking patter.
GPU back plat is just for aesthetics Firestrike - 9329, 3d mark - 11,759, unigine heaven - 2,335, Amd Overdrive sytem test - 13,262
I my opinion the best bang for your buck currently out there.
It just works
It does what I need it too and is all black which fit the color scheme. If I didn't can about the color scheme I would have went with a higher end Asus board but this works ok.
I am a G.Skill fan
Not the fast out there but great price to performance.
Its works great
I love this card, can't say enough good things about it. The best one I've ever had and it was under $300.
Everyone should build in this case at least once so you know haw a case should be laid out. It is as good as the reviews say.
I know people say Corsiar is the that great of a power supply but I have always used them and never had a problem. I just wish I would have gone larger. If I upgrade it I will go with a Seasonic.
Only used it to load the operating system & burn my CD collection onto the PC. It did those two things well.
I really liked 8.1 but have since upgraded to 10 which is fantastic
Wireless Network Adapter
This thing works great and has excellent range.
Simple and easy to use. You can also change the led colors.
$138 for an IPS monitor, there is also no bezel so it is perfect for a multi-monitor set up (which I plan on doing). Picture is very sharp.
Customization is easy with the software provided. I'm left handed and this is one of the few mice that have side buttons on both sides and can be used by either hand. If your a lefty this is the mouse you want.
Christmas Gift from my son so I love them but it you plan on doing a lot of recording the mic isn't the best.
Works like it should.
