Description

This was much easier than I thought. I'm really happy with it and was wondering what everyone here thinks.

I already had the HDDs, BR drive and OS from my old HP this is replacing. Everything else was purchased on Thanksgiving and Black Friday except for the memory. I had purchased Ripjaws on Thanksgiving but one of the sticks was bad and went back to Newegg. Ended up purchasing the Patriot sticks last week at Fry's.

I didn't reduce build price for rebates ($95 total) and I also got AC4 & Splinter Cell Blacklist free with the GTX 760.

Thoughts?

Nice part choices and cable management! Bummer about the ram but it happens. How are you liking the 760?

Thanks, unfortunately I have no other experience to compare to and the 760 just arrived yesterday but I like it so far.

I let the games download overnight and tried AC4 for about 10 minutes on 1440p today. Going to play around with 1080p as well and see how it differs. I've only gamed on consoles so far so the keyboard and mouse deal will take getting used to!

what kind of fps do you get on 1080p for ac4?

I will let you know when I try. Forgive the dumb question as I'm new at this: what is the best way to measure fps? I've seen YouTube videos where there is a graphic overlay constantly measuring it-do I need something like that?

you can use tools like fraps. or find some free tools to use fps counters. i have only used fraps so i am unaware of other choices

Didn't do it for very long but this is what I got at 1080p:

Frames, Time (ms), Min, Max, Avg

4131, 90532, 29, 61, 45.630
