Description

Built around a bargain GTX 970 purchased from a friend, brand new CPU and mobo (my 1st new parts!).

I have yet to play anything serious on this as just moved house and awaiting internet connection.

Played No Mans Sky nicely however we all know that is not the best example. Plays Rocket League on ultra settings without issue.

Will be playing Star Wars Battlefront and Overwatch when connected.

Wishlist for future additions: - soundcard for music production. - dedicated gaming mouse. - new case (low priority) the current Zalman case does fit the Windforce edition GTX 970 if the removable 3 drive bay is rotated 90 degrees.

Nice set up! +1

For the WQHD monitor, I use the Pixio PX274. I got mine for less than $220USD. I believe they're second hand panels that get repackaged so your unit might have a little backlight bleed, but similar panels from ASUS, Acer, etc. cost easily twice as much. If you're really concerned about backlight bleed I'd order through amazon since they're so lenient with their returns. You can find the monitor here:

They're a pretty big brand name. Many times they're comparable to Noctura, Zalman, and the other other large names.

Not a bad build, but not a fan of those ram. Not good looking, rather slow.

However, nice build.

Probably not. If you're on a tight budget, which I'm assuming you are, then you can check out my budget list here:

This is not the place to ask that question...

And towards "fast enough for some sort of gaming" yeah, of course it will do some gaming... But that build is not good. If you're gonna make a PC, you might want to wait for a bit extra money... Like, $300 at least. Towards the parts, the ram is way to little for most things, your storage is far to small, and that PSU is not great.

Just wait for extra money to build a PC.

It's pretty good for a small bomb
