Description

First off let me say that it has been a goal of mine to build a gaming computer for over 3 years now. So when I saw the opportunity to buy the parts and build it, I jumped at it. And I settled for nothing less than some of the best equipment that I could get. Things like my mouse, keyboard, monitor, external HDD, headphones, and speakers I bought or was gifted over the past year or so. But for all of the internal parts and components for it I purchased the same day.

My goal with this computer was to be able to play just about any game out there at either high or ultra settings, and not have to upgrade for a while.

If you would like to see the video that details my entire setup and how i have everything setup, you can follow this link to watch it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pd9Y2VS5Adc

The main monitor that I use for gaming is a Dell monitor that is 1920x1080 and runs at 60Hz. My secondary monitor is a Samsung and is 1336x768 and it is also running at 60Hz.

I went with an R9 390 GPU because of its price and how its is about on par with a GTX 980. And for a price that is less than that, I had to go with the 390. I'm using the 32GB SSD only as a boot drive, allowing my computer to boot up in under 20 seconds.

I went with a 1TB HDD because I already have a 1TB external HDD. But the only problem that I am having with my internal HDD is that my computer won't recognize it.

The motherboard I chose because of it ability to overclock, and that I could also do two way crossfire if I wanted to.

The case I chose because of its size and the fact that it already X3 140MM case fans that are based off of an already great fan design.

For the keyboard I chose the Corsair Vengeance K70 RGB with Cherry MX Red switches. I chose it because of it being RGB, and I have always loved the Cherry switches.

The speakers I got because of one of my friends. He has them and they are absolutely stunning in sound quality. The sub that comes with them literally can shake an entire floor of your house.

In all this was an awesome build, now granted, I regret not having gone with a fully modular PSU, but it is what it is.

i think that with a cooling system like the one you use you cannot overclock as much as you want (i suppose) you should upgrade the cooling system to water loop

Have any issues with your system crashing etc? I'd like to know if that power supply is handing your 390, because that seems you're pushing it pretty hard

Zero crashes that are power related so far.
