Description

This was the first PC I built,it's gone through numerous changes and now it's my gaming system as well as my entertainment system for movies.

A couple of notes:

The GTX970 Strix isn't what I run,I run an IChill Inno3D 970 but it isn't listed.

The HDD is purely for films and music,the 840 houses my OS and program files then the Crucial houses games.

The sound system consists of 2 x 100W Wharfedale speakers and a 100W Eltax subwoofer,all this is powered by a Yamaha 100W per channel reciever that supports 2 x 2.1 or a 5.1 system,running off my motherboards sound,

The two monitors are Asus VH242H's , the left one is slightly newer and has HDMI input where as the other one just has VGA and DVI,I run DVI from the monitors and then it gets converted into DisplayPort at my graphics card.

The Desk suits my system perfectly,giving enough space,the monitors are at eye level and the Amp/Sub fits perfectly.

My CPU while playing games such as BF4 and War Thunder on ''Ultra'' will sit around 45c,this is with the radiator fans only turning at 500RPM.

The GPU sits slighty higher than the CPU at 55-60c with the fans set on auto to rise in speed to keep the temperature cool.

The keyboard and mouse in the picture is a Cyborg V5 and a Rat 7 mouse,I use the mouse on the Ichill mouse mat that came with the GPU.

I run the sound in 2.1 mode,I don't have enough space for 5.1 but I also have a TV so I run the TV speakers from the same amp and just change inputs and source,the subwoofer has a dedicated output so it will be used by whatever channel is outputting.

Congratulations on paying the highest price for a $99 operating system! Sorry, I meant, why did you get the 32 and 64-bit version? I like that build you got there! How does it perform? :) +1

It's simple. 32+64= 96-bit. Simply jam both CDs in SLI in the DVD drive and you're good to go.

But really I agree build looks awesome but his motherboard seems pretty expensive.

I didn't,I presume 32/64 means or,not and.

It performs perfect,nothing it cannot run reasonably well :)

Well, the 64-bit one is only $99, and the only reason you should need 32-bit is if you have a 32-bit processor, which is not a very commonly seen thing anymore.

You don't understand...I only have the 64bit and the price was less than $99 anyway.

I don't know what you mean. We must not be on the same page because your parts list says you payed "$475" for "Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium Full (23/46-bit)". It does not say you payed <$99 for just 64-bit...

Because the option wasn't there,I paid 99,simples.

People on the internetz are very dense....

Might I ask why you would pay 475 for an operating system.

Because he didn't. That's the current price of it, not the one he got it at.

Curious as to why you chose a second gen i7 and 1155 rather than a newer haswell for the price range? I, personally would have built an m99x system with a 6 core i7 for the money.

PC is over 2 1/2 years old, the CPU and PSU is the only things that remain original.

They said that this PC has gone through a couple of changes. I assume that it's the same CPU from when they first built the system. I also highly doubt that they bought W7 fro $475.

I am interested in that GPU. What company is that?

He said the GPU was an IChill Inno3D 970. And the chip is designed by NVIDIA, and produced by IChill in his case.

IChill Inno3D,it's a great GPU,very bulky build quality.
