why did u go with a nice monitor over better internal parts

  • 52 months ago
  • 1 point

because the monitor is the gateway to your gaming experience. this is something you're likely gonna have longer than the build itself, so might wanna get a good one. what "better" internals would you prefer? you asked for bang for buck parts. i5, good budget cooler, best bang for buck SSD that's single digit % behind the 850 EVO but like $30 less expensive. I have a 980ti and Fury here (with a couple 4K displays) and the Fury is a great value by comparison. the case is also a very good mid tower with a full acrylic side panel. can't see any different choices that aren't essentially a waste of cash. maybe the gpu to a 980ti and a cheaper 1440p monitor. then you lose adaptive sync. :)

right now i am comparing it to the first build on https://pcpartpicker.com/forums/topic/137490-2000-gaming-pc

  • 52 months ago

I see. that build:

  • is not even within your stated budget
  • has a gpu from that store that never actually has anything in stock (it's not in stock)
  • needlessly expensive cooler and motherboard that do nothing for performance
  • the monitor is good, it has the same panel as my Samsung 4k monitor
  • has a worse headset

all said, the Fury X is marginally faster than the Fury, but has a higher chance to be noisy with coil whine. also, you'll get more gaming performance at 1440p than at 4K, but I do use a Fury (non X) on a Samsung 4K freesync monitor and the experience is good for the most part. 60hz medium - high settings vs 144hz at high - very high settings is the deciding factor.

my budget isn't a fine line it is just the area i want to stick around

I am just trying to get as many suggestions as possible as i can so i can tailor my own build to fit my needs and thanks for that info on the graphics card i din't know that

i know right

Since there are sooooo many ways to twist a build, here is another take.

Includes Headset but no mouse mat.

No mention of the desire to OC so didn't put the $ there. NO REBATES.

27" 1440 screen, 980TI, 1 TB SSD storage AND 1 TB spinning rust drive, Ram is 2133 with 13 CAS.
