This was my first build. I decided to go as all-out as it really made sense to for gaming at 1440p 144Hz. This is also for video recording/editing for YouTube and playing around with virtual machines. I went with a black/white/gray build because I wanted a classy look that would last. I purchased a reference Titan X when they first came out, before the 980 Ti was announced, but I couldn't be happier with its performance especially after I installed the EVGA Hybrid kit as an upgrade. However, installing the hybrid kit was a real pain and I don't plan on doing anything similar in the near future. Under load, overclocked, the card performs like a champ and never gets above 50 when gaming. When it's really amped up there is a quiet but distinct coil whine, but it isn't very loud at all. My system is very quiet and you can hardly hear it; you certainly can't hear it with headphones on. I had the Bose speakers lying around and they're fine for my needs. Also added a wireless adapter for my Xbox One controller as well as a Dbrand vinyl skin for it. Now the only thing left is a new desk!
I should add that I purchased the wifi card so that I could connect my desktop to my dual band wireless router. Just my desktop uses the 5 GHz band and since the router is in the same room as my comp the connection is rock solid. Gaming I never have more than 63 ping which is amazing!
Translucent keycaps for my K70 are coming soon!
