+1 for the predator. Maybe time to upgrade my ROG Swift?? Getting close to monitor perfection.
HD800s :-O , One day! I still have my 558s and a dragonfly DAC . One Day Tho!
What software are you using? Thought about JRiver?
Soooo , What case is that? Sorry if silly question. I do see that it is an in - win. Which one tho? Thanks. +1 obviously.
Love the Kefs #worth
Na, I think you hit the sweet spot for gaming ! Worth every penny isn't it ?!?! :-)
Have you had any problems with the 4k TV and Asus monitor combo? I have a ROG Swift for gaming and was thinking about picking up a TV for movies\netflix. Has having monitors with different resolutions caused you any problems or messed with your settings?
980 seems OK for 1080p
Congrats! and don't let the haters hate on your i7-5930k for a gaming PC. It really does kill a i5 or 4790k for gaming also.
4790k has the fastest single core performance. There are in fact a couple games that have better FPS with the i7 than the i5. And maybe next gen games will run better with hyper threading. And the 4790k simply kicks butt. I really want to upgrade to one soon.
Are you still happy with the integrated graphics? I hear a gt730 can be significantly better. I am getting a similar PC together in a node 304. I am using an i3-4130 and considering a gt 730 for it
I am starting to see this case more often. How would you rate it ? Seems pretty cool . Also, my noctua nh - d14 cools pretty good for a little overclocking :-)
Good job on the conversion! PC best IMO. )
Depends on your monitor.
1080p-- gtx 960 or 970 --- or even 750ti if all you play is LOL and watch movies.
1440p-- gtx 980 or gtx 980ti.
4k-- gtx 980 sli gtx 980ti sil or TITAN sli.
Since you have a KICK BUTT 1440p LG monitor. I would try and save up for a gtx 980ti :-)
Ya I tried out one of the industrial fans in my PC and just sold it for an nf -f12 . Great fans, just too loud for my desk.
I just can't get on board with your assessment. More reliable brands? This build is much better.
whats so massive about the price? nice electronics cost money, maybe he is not a big gamer. Maybe he will add one later.
They are all SATA 6 ports correct?
Mostly just playing around:-) Awesome PC!
Ultra 4k ? Those don't look like titans to me :-)
Awesome PC ! I wan't to copy this build a bit as IO want to do an alien theme :-) Thanks for posting +1
I can't down vote this comment enough.
You made the right choice.
3 ROG Swift :-O I just got my Swift in the mail last weekend and I love it. I couldn't wait for more competition and the price to drop. I really love it . G Sync is so good. Awesome setup m8 !
I wasn't asking why one better card, I was commenting on his comment section, 5th sentence. lol :-)I know the reasons not to go sli but I still think it is cool , but thanks anyway.
Says the guy with no posted build of his own. Everyone is a critic. Nice PC man!
Why one better card? 960 sli beats 970 for 1080p. I think you made a perfect PC for 1080p gaming. Cheers
Freaking cool , I have always wanted to get a pcie ssd , just haven't been able to afford yet. One day though. You happy with the mushkins? Seems like a great brand , made in the USA, to me.
Well butter my biscuit
The cards are running a little cooler after I put on the NT H1 thermal paste. They would run at 80.
I have been using 2 780's successfully on my samsung 590d. Post updates on how your 970 works out for you . Your video card looks like a transformers face : )
You are correct sir, you know your stuff. It is just I was trying to build a new setup and by the time I was done we went from z77 to x99 and 780 to 980. But of coarse it is not that outdated....
Currently I have Sennheiser 558 and a dragonfly DAC. ONE DAY THOUGH! Nice sounds man! Worth the $ IMO
I got an HRT Music streamer 2 for my audioengine speakers and was shocked at the difference it made. Great speakers, crappy DAC. Cool setup.
and also they come in black now.
Noctua fans are by far my fav.
I guess only because of the case though, it is unique to you 4sure.
This reminds me of Js2cents build . +1 10 / 10
So what , what is wrong with Air?
There is ALWAYS going to be a next big and better thing, don't get obsessed , your set up is bad *** , period. I just love seeing builds where monitors and accessories match what the pc can do.
I like your build man, it is much like mine. I feel like you hit the sweet spot for performance vs. dollars spent. How do you like the sound card? I went for exterior DACs instead and am happy with the choice. Ill trade you my corsair c70 for your cooler master cm storm haha.
Yes I am old and still use these medevil devices.
Ya man, it is an office star Prado L-Shaped workstation I got off amazon . They are bad ***, come in white or black and reversable. It weighs 100 pounds and is very sturdy.
Man that is the debate I am having with myself. The 970s are just so sweet and it is getting harder to get a 780 ghz and now they are completlly discontinued. Still not sure what to do. I am finding one here and there on ebay for around 300, not much less than a new 970, so I think switching may be the better option. You are prob right about just getting a single 980 though.
I save boxes because I tend to resell things after not so long.
Oh thats an old CAD u37 mic I got a long time ago to record myself playing guitar. Its nothing great.
Ha ha , I had good cables until I redid the fans, controller and out in aio. , gonna clean it up when I switch to the 970s and get rid of the aio.
So why did you take off the Noctua for the H80i? Just curious, Thanks and nice build. )
