It's 1080p 144Hz, but you can probably fit a 1440p 144Hz monitor in if you go with a smaller SSD. Overall, it's very nearly overkill, but it's very very nice.

He said no on overclocking.

He doesn't have to if he doesn't want to...

I went with the k because of the ridiculous stock clock and the h7 because it's really quiet, and the z chipset for the higher clock ram.

I do have reasons behind my choices, ya know

Most don't, I wasn't sure if you misread.

Fair enough. Apologies for getting snarky.

but yeah, the list will still be great for stock speeds, and overclocking is an option down the road if OP get curious.

Yeah.

For your consideration:

CPU cooler is to help keep the CPU cooler so it stays on the turbo clocks and quieter that the stock cooler.

MB: Has gaming features.

980 paired with a 2440X1440 IPS G-sync monitor for great, smooth gameplay.

Quiet, builder friendly case. 3 PWM fans to take advantage of the MB cooling tuning and be quiet.

AC capable wireless adaptor and should have no driver issues.

Win 10 full so no need to purchase a DVD drive which the case does not have a spot for anyway. Goes with the owner and not tied to the MB.

Included sound because you need to hear them coming !!

thanks bro. You think i dont need i7 or 980 ti instead

  • 53 months ago

Im using a 980 and this monitor and seeing 100-110 fps at max settings on GTA V. Im sure a 980ti would do better but it pushed it to far over the price goal. Your call.

If only gaming then an i5 will do but if you want to spend the $ it sure won't hurt.

Here's a build that will do you well and last quite a few years. While it has parts for overclocking, overclocking in and of itself is optional and nothing says you can't run stock speeds. It will give you 2560x1440 gaming resolution w/G-Sync and 144 Hz with a fast 1ms gtg refresh time. These are proven brands as well.

It however has these caveats:

  • No OS
  • No speakers/headphones
  • Single monitor.
  • Socket 1150 platform is becoming limited on availability of parts.

Wdym by Socket 1150 platform is becoming limited on availability of parts.

  • 53 months ago

The 1150 socket is the "old" socket. All the parts currently being produced new are on the LGA-1151 or "Skylake" platform. 1150 isn't really old, it's just not the newest.

As a result, 1150 uses an older ram standard and motherboard sockets/chipsets that are going to become more and more rare as time goes on, whereas Skylake has much more time of new production.

Performance-wise, the 4790k is still more than enough for gaming.
