Hello, this is my first build ever, i've been planning this for almost two years, and now it finally came alive! I wanted not only a platform that i could upgrade easily later, but i also had to make it look awesome, now it sits on my desk unlike my old computers wich were used as feet rest under the desk. The components speak for themselves, they boast incredible performance, i can play anything with 100+ fps in any scenario in 1440p with all settings maxed out and that is perfect. I've spent a great deal of cash on it, but the components were chosen wisely after a lot of internet browsing and although i live in Italy, the prices we're the same in euro.
CPU - i'm still not sure if it was the wisest decision in this build but i wanted a Broadwell platform so this is what i could get for the lowest price. This way i could easily upgrade later when prices drop for a higher-end part. Cooling - went for AIO, looks cool, stays cool, easy to install and manage. MB - the x99 platform was the best choice here, did i mention it has RGB? :) RAM - 32 gb of 3000 mhz red lighted awesomeness, what more do you want? HDD - went with two different SDDs, no HDD here, i considered them obsolete VGA - best i could find on the market at the moment, i couldn't wait for Ti anymore Case - for that price and for how cool it looks i consider it 50% free easy to manage, to install, to upgrade PWS - it's too much, but there was a great offer on this 1200 W PWS so better for future upgrades Fans - the originals are great but.. did i mention they are red? oh and maglev? how cool is that? also very silent Monitor - best ips 165 hz. looks great, delivers great performance in gaming Speakers - they are almost one year old actually, but they sound so good... the bass and clarity is incredible Headphones - the order should arive in the next few days, can't wait to unbox them, they should sound great Keyboard - in the picture but not in the part list, a pretty old Logitech G19. Old, but still works great!
Not much else i could say about it, other than what i can already complain about it. Nvidia drivers kinda suck so they have issues with these new Pascal video cards. My 6 year old computer had none of these problems ever; it's a letdown having these hiccups even when paying premium. All in all i know i could saved a lot not going with good looking parts or it could have more performance for the same price. But with the Ferrari, you get the performance, and the looks, right?
