Forums - PC Discussion - Just built my new pc, I'm in love!

Yeah, I got my $99 PC a few weeks ago. Pretty sweet. Guys like you and me--we know where it's at! PC master race 4 life!

LOL 32GB of ram. Should of used all that ram to buy a a good Noctua CPU Cooler. Nevertheless, sweet setup!

Nice. Congrats!

Pretty beastly rig ya got there.

Here's my build:

Intel i5-4670k 3.4GHz CPU
Nvidia GTX 980 Zotac AMP edition 4gb GPU
Corsair Vengeance LP 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 RAM
Asus Z97-A ATX LGA1150 Motherboard
Samsung 850 Pro Series 128GB 2.5" SSD
Western Digital BLACK SERIES 2TB 3.5" 7200RPM HDD
Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler
Corsair Vengeance C70 (Black) ATX Mid Tower Case

I use a regular keyboard but used to use a RAT3 mouse but the grip didn't do me too well so I opted for some i-Rocks mouse that does the job from GAME UK store, I'll probably buy an Adder mouse at some point but only when the price goes down.

Also I'm currently using a BenQ GL2460 monitor but the colour banding is driving me nuts with some games so I've also opted for an Nvidia G-Sync monitor from AOC since it will give me what I need without having to put p with horrid stuttering from Nvidia's Vsync via control panel or screen tearing from not using Vsync, that and using Vsync gives me stuttering frames for some games and for competitive games it;s just not worth it.


Welcome to the PC gaming family :)! Been PC gaming since 2012 myself!

-AMD Radeon 7850 2 GB OC
-AMD Athlon II X4 2.8 Ghz(something something I forgot exactly and cant check what it is since its in the US and I'm in India right now :P)


My gaming laptop which I have with me has....

-Intel Core i7-4500U Dual Core 1.8 - 3GHz

You should try playing CSGO, Portal 2 or Left 4 Dead 2 first ^_^

Nice! Not too far away from the new rig I'm going to be building this month:

Intel i7 6700K
Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo CPU Cooler
Asus Maximus VIII Ranger Motherboard
16GB Kingston HyperX Fury Black DDR4 (2 x 8GB)
In Win GR One ATX Full Tower case
EVGA 850W G2 Power Supply (80+ Gold Rated)
Lite-On iHAS124-14 DVD Writer

Am using my SSD and hard drives from my current rig and may just use the iGPU until May next year when I'll be getting either a Pascal GPU (as long as it doesn't cost an arm and a leg and if NVidia ever decide to release the bloomin thing) or a Radeon R9 Fury X.

Will be planning on getting another GPU at some point and running them in SLI/Crossfire, hence the beefy PSU, plus I always run my machines practically 24/7.

If the iGPU can't produce the goods then I'll use the 2GB Radeon HD 4870 from my current rig.

For your first game I would suggest something that looks good - Ethan Carter Redux, Skyrim, Witcher 3.

ohh.. the old sin of envy
