Nvidia are supposed to be releasing a bios update this week to enable freesync monitor support. You therefore get a very capable gaming pc, monitor with freesync for tear/stutter free gaming.

This includes everything including peripherals.

Can I ask why you opted for 32gb ram? Plus could have saved by excluding mouse and keyboard and gone for a GPU which can push a high frames rate at 1440p without graphical setting compromise.

Flaming.GoolzZz 1 point 2 months ago

He asks for peripherals, thats why I included them. 32gb ram because right now industry standard is pushing out of 8gb and into 16 so I included 32 kit because if he ever wants to venture into streaming/ doing youtube he should be covered for everything including ram, so basically "future proofing". Also the 2070 can run 1440p no problem at high-ultra settings and since it is a 20 series card it has ray tracing if he decides to play new games like BFV. Also even if I did take away the 32 kit of ram for 16 still wouldn't be enough to upgrade to a 2080 with the cheapest one being $700+.
