Hey so I mostly play FPSs (mostly Black Ops 3/4), open world games like Assasin's Creed, Forza Horizon 3/4. I don't really have any "eyecandy" ish games yet. The reason I settled for the 580 was because with Ryzen, I needed a dedicated GPU anyway, and I got it second hand for a good price, and also FreeSync. I do want to go all out on the GPU in the future, so still debating on RX Vega 64/ Radeon VII or waiting on Navi. To achieve it, I mostly play with a mix of medium and high, as well as turning down antialiasing and shadows. The games still look gorgeous, but doing 100fps on Ultra will be amazing in the future. The good thing to keep in mind is that 3440x1440 is 4.9 millon pixels vs 3840x2160's 8.2 million, so a lot less pixels to render. Think of it as a slightly wider 2560x1440p screen (about 3.8 million pixels).
Hey aas713, I just recently finished my build that was partly inspired by your current build. The only difference is that I went all-AMD on my build. I even managed to work a nice 34" 3440x1440 100Hz ultrawide into my budget that's FreeSync friendly. You should check it out. I'm debating getting the ML360R to gain the three extra ARGB fans or just getting the MF120R 3in1 pack which will still give me a RGB'd out setup, minus the liquid cooling.
Yeah it's pretty sweet. I love the ASUS UEFI BIOS. It has so much custom stuff. Mind you, I'm coming from a Dell laptop that also had a mouse enabled GUI BIOS, but this ASUS one blows it out the water. Also helps that the Crosshair VII Hero is one of the best X470 boards you can buy nowadays.
Disregard my last question, I just realized what you did. You used the ML360 with its radiator and RGB fans, and repurposed the three builtin case fans to put 2 at the top and replace the non RGB fan with the third one
I notice in your pics, you have an extra ARGB fan? Did that come with the case, or you sourced that yourself?
