Description

Purchased and built by DD computers as my first desktop gaming pc. Fairly new to pc gaming, last year spent on an msi laptop and before that consoles. I only have two gripes with this pc, first being DD computers cable management, i believe they could've done better, and secondly I kind of regret getting a 27inch screen, seems a bit too big...but bigger is better aye ladies?

Tell us what you think.

I would have to agree you paid someone for this computer the least they could do is tuck a wire or two, next time DIY!

Was originally gonna go for a budget build and do it all myself, but my love of shiny things became too much to bear. And because of the amount I spent I really didn't want to screw anything up. Next time though ;)

never doubt yourself, the joy of building your own pc is rewarding and gives a good sense of pride, yep you're right it looks like the guy who built your pc didn't even bother with routing and cable management even though its a full modular, did they also do a stable OC on this build?

In a couple of years down the track, when i replace the GPU with the latest and greatest i'll probably tidy the insides and look into overclocking but at the moment it runs like a dream. Would over clocking really give me much of a performance boost, aka is it worth the time and effort at this point?

quite long explanation so forgive me on this:

It is so much worth it with that build since the part that you chose applies on it , but that depend's entirely on what you're planning to do in this upcoming pc's life with you, basically there are few different type's OC'ing your CPU,GPU,RAM are the one's that you can OC mainly, there are several different type's of where you can apply this because there are game's or program's that use CPU intensive use and then there's the GPU intensive use if purely for gaming i'd say CPU and GPU and what you paid for the item you can benefit from less lag more fps quick load/response time but in the real world application it wont be noticed at all too much but still you can sense it, if video editing rendering OC the RAM aswell. there are so many explanation and guide'sssssssss on this on the web and i cant post a link since you'll be doing it from scratch, my advice do a lot of reading and start now because it will help "ALOT" one thing to bear in mind OC'ing to much will ''de grade the component(ENTER the Close.Loop.Water.Cooling)'' so bear that in mind. this is also the reason why most people who post here have a bit of a ''why'' question on parts and reason on the item's you bought..don't take that the wrong way they do know what they''re talking about. gl and welcome to pc building!

A 5820K and a 970 for just gaming???? A 4970k and a 980 would have been so much better.

When it came to the cpu I didn't really know what to get. So I panicked and chose one of the latest.

At least you won't have to upgrade the cpu anytime soon! :)

Spoke to a mate the day i got it and said basically the same thing everyone here is with the 4790. but i'm happy with it, and the longer it lasts the better.

Seriously? An i5 is excellent for gaming. And the 970 will run pretty much any game maxed out. Don't listen to this guy who doesn't know about price to performance.

I agree a 4690K and 970 can run any triple AAA title out there excellent.

He has an X99 motherboard with DDR4 memory and a $480 CPU and paired it with a GTX 970, WTF does this have to do with Price to performance in gaming and who said anything about an i5?

Price wasn't an option til; literally the day i was picking the parts (was going to get a 1440p monitor and two 980's) my mates decided to plan a trip away for the holidays, thought accomodation and booze would be the better option :)

To many people D huggin the i5 series acting like its gods gift to gaming, once hyper threads r needed in gaming cuz real AAA games use more cores now it's gona be more demanding <_< plus going with the latest is probably better off this way he needs a graphics card before he needs a processor/mobo upgrade with is how much more $?
