Not sure if this is the right subforum but I just wanted to share my new gaming PC that I've built. After my old one was really showing its age (i5 2500k with 8GB RAM) and having issues where it would randomly decide to shut down on me and forcing me onto a crummy laptop for a week I felt it was time to get something new which would also provide me with the means to actually play Squadron 42 and Star Citizen at some point. Here is the list of components that I used and some pictures ASUS ROG MAXIMUS X CODE Intel Core i7-8700K Corsair Hydro H115i Corsair 32GB DDR4-3000 Vengeance RGB (2x16) ASUS GeForce GTX 1080 Ti OC Strix Gaming 11G Corsair Carbide Clear 400C White Corsair AX860 PSU Samsung 960 PRO M.2 512GB SSD Corsair ML120 Premium - Twin Pack Corsair ML140 Premium - Twin Pack Picture of all the components prior to unpacking and assembly It was a tight fit due to the midsize case but I was able to fit everything properly. I replaced the original casefan and the ones for the radiator with the ML fans. And here's the end-result! I wanted to go with an Aegis Avenger theme and I believe it worked out great I got the Aegis decal from a site called Redbubble
So my coworker, an admitted PS4 gamer, saw some trailer for a PC game on one of his forums and was really moved by it. He came to me, the biggest nerd IT guy in the company, to chit chat about it and ask if I could help him build a PC he picked out. Well ho-de-ho, it was not a trailer, he watched the entire hour long GamesCom Star Citizen 3.0 demo. Muhaha, after breaking to him I know all about the game and pointed out that the photos on my office are concept ships. So he is likely going to sign up once he get a PC running. I jumped into his parts list. It was all crap, a crazy $3000 total, and half of it was discontinued, so I started from scratch. He wanted a Red & Black themed Corsair and Asus tower. OK, I should be able to do this. Here's what I built: http://pcpartpicker.com/list/8CrDZ8 He has not settled on a budget, but wants to aim high so he can get VR. Any other PC builders have any comments? Suggested changes?
Hey people. It's been almost a year since I posted last on this subject and I think it's time to get a new computer. My current setup is too old and can't really run anything I want to play. After browsing some local boutique shops and seeing what they put in their gaming computers I put together a list, I wanted to run it by some people who might have a better understanding of these things. I'm not really that tech savvy but I'm beginning to understand the basics. I'm still in doubt on whether or not I should go for SLI, I picked the motherboard with that option in mind. Would need a higher wattage power supply if I get myself 2 GTX 980 Ti's My overall budget for this system itself is around 2500 euros, so i have a little bit more to spend if the pricing is correct on PCpartpicker Had to choose Germany for Euro pricing, there was no option for the Netherlands. http://de.pcpartpicker.com/p/JT9x7P
