Description

A PC that started from the monitor choice - ultra wide. Meant to be reasonably silent and require low maintenance.

Had it for around two weeks now and it's being shared between me (gaming) and my wife (photo editing). That's why it runs on the slightly more overkill i7 and it features the extra storage.

Works like a dream.

Update: thanks for the comments, I will add more pix later this week.

$300 in RAM O_O Wish I could spend that, but it's about half of my whole budget.

Looks nice, but I would love some more photos!

My bad on the RAM - i messed the link there. Updated with the actual one installed. I wouldn't spend 300 on RAM.

That's much better! How do you like Ultrawide? I've wanted one for a while and don't know if I should jump in with one of the 60hz $800 models form LG or go all in on that Acer

It's my first ultrawide monitor so i have no frame of reference here. Gaming is phenomenal. Working also actually results in several parallel tasks managed on the foreground - more stuff in front of ur eyes (with lots of space to spare). The experience is a bit like going dual screen for the first time - u realize u'd never go back to single monitor setup from that - it's overwhelming at first. Personally i also kinda dislike the current 4K PC experience, which is quite oddly supported in most software except games, and when it is - everything looks microscopic and odd. So this 3440x1440 is the perfect upgrade from classic 1080p, at least for my eyes (my wife also agrees on this but i realize this is very subjective). In terms of what model to get - the GSync seems worth the extra bucks. For instance right now I play Total War a lot and those games are never particularly well optimized (no matter what rig u have - FPS will dip every once in a while in specific conditions). I would get drops from 70 FPS to 37 sometimes and I'd never notice, save for some input and the fps counter on screen. I have also tried a few benchmarks, ran around a bit in Arma 3 and I have not seen a single tear on screen so far. It's voodoo stuff. But in all fairness, I've got this for just a couple of weeks so my experience is fairly limited. All i can say for sure is that since I had this machine built at the office, two more mates at work got Predators after spending 20 minutes with mine... I would recommend it but only as long as u don't have to make some serious sacrifice to get it. U could wait also for the second gen incoming this fall i guess.

How good does the gtx 1080 fit in that case

Awesome looking build. Glad to see some people still running their rigs on air. +1

Just picked up an Acer X34 today for a new Kaby Lake build that's going to be cooled via a Noctua NH-D15S. Glad to hear you like yours.

The monitor yeah, the RAM not so much - i had the wrong one listed. The display is worth it btw...
