So here is my Republic of Gamers themed gaming pc. I pre apologize for some of the blurry photos, I was more focused on building than taking pictures during the main build. This is the first pc I have ever built and I could not be happier with the outcome. I ordered all of the parts during the weekend of black Friday/cyber Monday 2014 in hopes to save some cash, and was able to do so. All of my parts shipped on time and everything looked to be shipped properly, all parts came in perfect working condition. I was extremely happy about this as I was afraid I'd have to send things back and wait longer to build...But when it came time to put everything together, I did the best I could for a first timer ;) When I powered it on everything fired up perfect! After setting it up and running some games and benchmarks, I am very happy with the performance. My machine runs cool and quiet at all times, the cooler master HAF case breathes extremely well. I really wanted to go with a 4K monitor, but already pushed way over my 2000$ budget(lol)so i decided to go with the 144hz asus monitor. Now at first this screen didn't really look that nice to me, but after installing the proper icc profile and a bit of tweaking, I love this monitor. I have not tried the 3D capabilities yet, but I am overall happy with this monitor. I'm using the SSD for my OS and primary games and the WD green is for storage. I plan on adding another strix980 and doubling my ram in preparation of multiscreen 4K gaming come tax season, but so far for single screen gaming one gtx980 is doing the job for me. As it sits I feel I will be happy with this machine for at least another year or more without having to do any upgrading. The Logitech desktop speakers sound amazing for their price, the headset doesn't sound nearly as good as the speakers in my opinion. Mouse and Keyboard both do the job and then some, I have no regrets whatsoever. All in all for a first time build and my first gaming pc, I am happy with this setup and cant wait to see what the future brings to pc gaming! Any questions, comments, criticism or advice please feel free to let me know!
