Description

This is my first PC so please feel free too give me props, or tell me that I blew it!

I had purchased both the Xbone and PS4 in hopes of the next best thing and felt fairly underwhelmed with both, so I started looking into building a PC and joining the "master race". I sold both for PC part money on craigslist along with my macbook pro. I felt obsessed with building this damn thing and it quickly became my new favorite hobby. I started out with much cheaper parts but my OCD wouldn't allow it and I started whipping out fliff like a sultan. Whipping out all that fliff drained my bank account and I somehow was able to not piss off my fiance too bad, but it didn't matter. I had built this thing and it was everything I hoped it would be and more. And overall it was a sinch to slap together. Installing the water cooler horrified me to a degree, thinking a hose would pop out and dump juice all over my motherboard and gtx 780. But alas, nothing got drenched and nothing blew up and I am proud to be typing on this marvelous machine (marvelous to me anyways). Runs everything on ultra and plays some youtube flicks in 4k, hot dog!

Oh yeah, I was so paranoid about shocking my motherboard that I built this wearing only my underwear and some timberland (anti static) boots. I chose to leave out a photo of that.

ooooh... Very nice! I love it. Cable management is great for a first timer. Very balanced part choice and everything. As for that last section, best way to build a computer I suppose :P

EDIT: Welcome to the master race!

with it facing up it will steal air from the gpu, and it will take in hot air from the inside, and cooling with hot air isnt exactly effective. itll run cooler and more quite if you flip it.

I'm working on selling my PS4 and other non-used tech stuff so I can get going on my build! PS4 is nice but, I expected more I figured why not build a PC. Also, how well does the GTX 780 perform?

good thinking my dude. So far I'm loving it. It handles everything with ease. I have been playing the titanfall beta and it is working like a dream. There is a fairly steep difference in price between it and the 770 but I think it's well worth it especially down the road.

How are titanfall graphics? I can't tell based on youtube videos due to compression.

they're definitely not jaw dropping. The game however is so fast paced and so much going on all at once that it looks pretty impressive on the screen. You could have it running around medium settings and probably wouldn't notice too much difference from the higher settings.

Love that case, was considering it myself, looks very clean. I laughed at the "whipping out fliff like a sultan" lol. Really nice job overall though!

haha glad you liked it, and much appreciated. It's quoted from a youtube cartoon called the "professor brothers" check it out you won't be disappointed! I love the case too, nice and minimal design.

Why pay $600 for a dell 1440p monitor when you could;ve grabbed a ~$350 one that is nearly identical.

  • 69 months ago

Stupid question, the question is why not 120/144hz NIGGAAZZ

  • 69 months ago

You barely notice the difference, I have 144hz myself and have compared to 60hz. Not much of a difference. Would rather have 1440p. However, i am ugrading it to gsync which will be a game changer.

do you need to take apart the monitor for gsync? It looks interesting.

  • 69 months ago

Yes you do. Currently it costs $200, but i won a kit from tomshardware for free.

Obviously you don't play much FPS or fast paced games dude. Or you don't own one. Because dude, its incredible. I was 75hz to 144. Massive difference.

You could've gotten a 3TB drive for less than $150, I would've switched the budgets on the two drives. Other than that its a solid build.

Wrong monitor you put in the parts list. I know because I have the one you took a photo of xD +1. Great build.

Haha, there's too many Damn numbers and letters for each name. How do you like it?

I absolutely love the monitor. It is responsive, has amazing color reproduction, and the viewing angles are almost scary. Awesome purchase in my opinion.

for sure, I'm really liking it. My only gripe is some reflection at times but I can live with it.
