Description

Built it to for FPS and MMO games, was not disappointed. Plays everything I've thrown at it with no problems at all on max settings.

I get around 70 FPS on Battlefield 4 (Same with Battlefield Hardline Beta) with Ultra at 1080p with AA disabled.

The motherboard is great for overclocking and so is the CPU currently running it at 4.0 GHz stable with 1.26 Volts (Had it up to 4.2 with 1.29V) with 12GB of RAM in Triple Channel @ 1600 MHz. Another good thing about this premium motherboard is the ability to run TRI-SLI/Xfire configuration at 8x or SLI/Xfire at 16x if running just two cards.

Corsair M65 is freaking amazing plain and simple, The 1500 Vengeance has great positional audio and bass, mic is crystal clear.

Razer Goliathus Speed Edition mat is tremendous, soft and has excellent tracking!

The Gigabyte Windforce 3 OC 760 GTX is an absolute beast and I got lucky with an awesome overclocker :D

Power Supply is the Corsair 850W TX but they didn't have it listed on PCPARTPICKER.

Why 12 gb of ram that takes up 6 slots? You could have gotten 16GB for cheaper, and you would have saved 2 slots. Also, a GTX 760 in a 1.8k gaming build? I'm confused.

It's a triple channel mobo and I don't like empty slots. Already have 3 slots of the same RAM then I bought another pair for $30 so yeahhhh.

Different amounts of money during the process of the build plus the mobo has the option to add in another 760 in the future.

Looks like you have a bit of a dust problem there... I would suggest cleaning that out to prevent throttling. +1 tho

Good thing I didn't pay that much. Only payed around $100 in total for the set.

This is really imbalanced. That RAM isn't helping anything; even 8GB dual channel is more than enough for any modern games. 16GB dual channel for $150 is overkill. 12GB triple channel is just silly for $240.

Additionally, the PSU is overkill. You could've gotten a better Platinum rated 520w Seasonic model for that much money, and it'd be the same and last longer. An i7 and 760 won't take more than 400w.

That small HDD is also odd. Just splitting the system across 2 drives will barely improve responsiveness or loads at all, it was really kind of a waste. Though the SSD would be perfect as a boot drive.

Having Windows 7 and Windows 8 is ridiculous, as nothing is exclusive to Windows 7 aside from a few outdated drivers that don't matter anymore. Picking either 7 for the GUI, or 8 for the newer software would work, but both is a waste.

It's a strong PC, but you could have gotten the exact same performance for $1000 instead of $1800.

The prices are all from PCPartpicker, I didn't pay no where near that for most the stuff.

Older parts seem to cost more, most these parts where left overs from previous builds.

Was posting this on craiglist to give people an idea of the price for most the parts. Hence why I also included Windows 7 ultimate to let them know if they didn't want Windows 8.1 I'm including Windows 7 disc.

On note of the HDDs they are all spares I had laying around, lol.

PSU was a left over from another build and the mobo is SLI/Crossfire ready so yeahhhh.
