Hi All,

Looking for an overkill gaming pc. Have had my eye on a 6-core haswell processor and the hybrid 980ti. Prefer a non-liquid heatsink.

Have a £2K budget, I'm from the UK. Build needs to include and monitor aswell which wont bottleneck the system. Looking for mainly gaming and some general browsing.

Show me what you're made of! AND THANKS IN ADVANCE!!

The lovely black mistress. Paired with a 28" 4k 60Hz monitor. I hope you like it as much as I do!

The CPU cooler in the list is pretty much the only air competitor to the Noctua fans, but looks a whole lot nicer

For 2k pounds, I'd much rather have my black mistress list, but honestly I'd be perfectly okay having either, haha

They'd definitely be an improvement over my solid little $850 system!

Lol I'm still foraging for parts to bring my latest monster into usefulness. There's only so much a 6 G3258 and 650 Ti can do lol
