Description

So after deciding to invest my money into a desktop rather than a laptop, I still wanted to have a "mobile" pc portable enough to put in a car and carry up a flight of stairs once a week. I'm a pretty serious gamer, so my machine has to be powerful, with no hampered potential, yet i need it compact. This is the build I came up with and I think it works pretty damn well.

Have transported this thing back and forth every week for 2 years now with no hiccups. Originally, booting off the OCZ ssd didn't work well, so I just put the OS on the hhd, and honestly it isn't noticeably slower. Takes about 35 seconds from power off to logging in and using the computer. I run every game I play on ultra at 60 fps (CSGO, Skyrim, Fallout 4, Rainbow Six Siege, Day Z, Rocket League, Chivalry, etc.) the MSI gtx 970 can have some coil wine from time to time, but the fans powering off when the graphics aren't under load makes the machine extremely quiet in idle--plus I game with headphones anyways. I'm not anti-semitic, and have Jewish family; so with that being said, the red LEDs in the front kind of look like a swastika, which I noticed while taking the pictures lol.

Maybe it is me but it looks a little dusty inside but what I LOVE about your build is you had an objective and you built a PC with that in mind and you did an awesome job. Aesthetics are second to function but in the case of the swastika......... perhaps there is something you can do...... good thing it does not bother you.

As it is a couple years old...... do you feel you may upgrade anything soon? If so, what?

What's worth upgrading? I was thinking maybe switching the 970 for a 1080, but I don't think I really need that.

What have you heard about the 1070?

Looks pretty solid. I think you may be able to fiddle with settings to get a faster boot on the SSD though.

look on the bright side, that symbol was around long before Hitler was even born and has a totally different meaning, now if it was red and turned clockwise a bit, yea i could see someone question it.
