Build with emphasis on next-gen gaming and live streaming.
Next stage is to add a second R9 290X and 3rd 27-inch monitor.
The Asus DC2 R9 290X (slight OC to 1110mhz using the software) is very strong and stays very quiet. The i7 processor (20% OC to 4.2 ghz) is extremely snappy paired with Windows 8.1 on a solid state drive. Currently running Titanfall at maximum settings and 1440p resolution with no problems and no overheating at 60% fan! Unigine Heaven 4.0 maxed-out score is around 1450, but there is a couple high-stress parts of the benchmarking where the FPS dips heavily.
Unfortunately having issues with the front audio ports on the case; still trying to figure that one out.
Prior to this, I was using a Asus G73 laptop (mobile radeon HD 5870) for gaming, so I am obviously stoked about this one!
