Description

This was my first desktop build in over 6 years after using a Samsung Series 7 Gamer laptop as my main computer. It was great fun to see how things have become so much easier for builders, and yet so painfully expensive (at the time of the build). Overall, it was a relatively painless build. The hardest part was transferring everything over from my old computer.

U might want to consider a monitor upgrade as a gtx 1080 is total overkill for a 1080p 60hz monitor

adamsw216 submitter 1 Build 1 point 13 months ago

Totally right. I am definitely going to move up to a 1440p 440hz monitor in the near future, but I just didn't budget for it right away, hah. My own fault.

Whoa 440hz? Where can I get one lol

adamsw216 submitter 1 Build 1 point 12 months ago

Whoops, typo. 144hz, lol.

I mean a 440Hz monitor would be great for gaming in FPS games.

Nice build, how are you liking the Shiit Stack?

adamsw216 submitter 1 Build 1 point 13 months ago

I like it. It's fairly neutral, and I've found I like something a little warmer sounding, but it's great at driving my HD650s, so I'm happy with them. And they're super affordable.

Cheers, how are the low ends?

adamsw216 submitter 1 Build 1 point 12 months ago

The low ends are a bit lacking, but honestly, for me it's not as bad as some people have said online. Sure, it could be kicked up a notch, but it still sounds good, imo.
