Pretty much a step up for gaming as my old rig (with i5 2500 cpu) was getting a bit old. Needed to go topish of the line as far as my money got me for the games of now i still play, bf4 etc and for the new games which hopefully it should be future proofed. Noted difference in processor usage down 30% on bf4 already.
BenQ's 144hz, 1080P Monitor looks amazing and has some cool options for software profiling. Great cable management in the adjustable stand and having 2x USB 3.0 is fantastic. Also something to hang my headphones on with the hook attached. Case is fantastic, a bit larger than I thought it would be, But was easy to build inside of. A little but of cable clutter, but supplied cable ties made it a lot cleaner. Had to fit the massive R9 390X inside of a small case was hard but this did it perfectly and with the window looks good, easy to take off side panels as well. Makes it ease to get inside. Power supply runs very quiet, cant hear it run, in fact I don't even think the fan has been going yet. Kraken X61 works great at cooling the processor. this is the only noise I can hear with this rig. still very quiet. All other fans are NZXT and at full power, no noise. Samsung SSD's run super fast.
