Introduction: So I decided to build this pc in order to stream and play games without any issues. My old build was a i5 6600k, MSI Krait x3 z170, NZXT Kraken x42, and a Asus Dual Series 1060 3GB. Pretty big jump here in my new build. I then thought, why not use my old PC to stream and just have the new build strictly for gaming and video editing.
Build: I decided to go with the Corsair 280x series due to it's size. love the compact look. I was doing a good amount of research between the i7 8700k and i9 9900k and could've justify the price tag on the i9 :( , therefore I went with the 8700k. During the build I did come across minor issues with cable management for the h100i heat sink cables, just don't like how the wires are pre-attached to the device, anyway it took some time but I got it looking the way I want it (i think i do). The biggest hurdle I came across was the RTX driver.
Mind you I have an old windows 10 iso, so the version of the windows was pretty outdated. When trying to install the driver, I hit the error "This driver can't be installed with this version of windows". I was completely lost and thought, wth, specs says it needs windows 10 and that's it. After further researching, the 20 series needs 1803 and higher due to DXR. After finding the update for 1809, I started the upgrade and took about 2 hours. Nevertheless, I'm all up and running and ready to test this new set up with the free battlefield V and Anthem games I got for purchasing the RTX. Hope you guys enjoy!
