I use this build for gaming. I can play Rainbow Six Siege at ~250 fps without a cap on and I can run Arma 3 at ~60 fps. I haven't had any issues and although it's expensive, it's really good for the price.
I paid $1500 for this pc as I got the 1080 for free. Recently a lot of the parts have gone up in value so it looks like I paid more than I did.
Edit: On Cyber Monday i upgraded my cpu cooler from the Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo to the NZXT Kraken x62 and i upgraded my mouse from the Razer Mamba TE to the Logitech G502 HERO. At Christmas, i got a new keyboard, the Corsair K70 SE, which replaced my Razer Ornata Chroma. The photos of my pc with the red scheme was my old setup, the white ones are what i have it to now.
great cpu. i havent overclocked yet, but it runs everything well. temps are steady too.
really great cooler. the infinity mirror looks really good and the fans are quite. it could be up for debate on whether this is worth the extra price for the same performance as some corsair aios, and that depends on how much you care about aesthetics.
great mobo that looks cool too. the asus aura software is easy to work with and i havent had issues. highly recommend
great ram, but i had one issue that my other friends with 16g dont have. sometimes when i enter a gmod server it crashes due to ram issues. no issues on other games
this is fast for the price, nothing else to say. highly recommend
it had good reviews and its just a hard drive. no issues. seagate is also a good way to go
looks cool and gives me high frames on all games. even on demanding games, such as arma 3, i can get 60+ fps. the gigabyte 1080s are cheaper though, but idk what the catch is. i got this for free so thats pretty cool
cool case that has easy cable management. only 60 bucks for full tempered glass side panel is cool
a power supply, no issues here. its also energy bill friendly so thats cool. it doesnt matter that much what brand you get. just pay attention to the ratings and fan noise. this one is quiet-ish, corsair is also good
great monitor but overpriced. acer makes a 27 in 144hz 1440p monitor thats significantly cheaper.
amazing keyboard. the white looks really nice and the cherry mx speed switches feel amazing. they are quite loud, but that doesnt bother me. the pbt double shot keycaps feel really sturdy, and so does the metal frame the keyboard is made of. my only gripe is that i dont really like the wrist rest, but i just bought another one and it was good (noo1a white memory foam wrist rest).
great shape and i love the 67g weight. the holes are small so you cant feel them when holding the mouse. i palm grip, but this mouse might be even better for claw. only issues is that there is a bit of side flex, so dont press in too hard on the sides or you might activate your side buttons. software is great and easy to use. wish i could go below 400 dpi though.
awesome headset. its really comfortable and the sound quality is great. the 7.1 also works great. only issue is that the mic isn't very good quality, but its fine for talking to friends over discord. if you record audio for youtube or something, i would recommend investing in a blue yeti mic or something like that
