ericdawg's Completed Build: Silent But Deadly Antec P160 Born Again 1080 GTX Gaming Rig

ericdawg submitter 1 Build 2 points 16 months ago

Hi. Yeah it's been perfect so far. I don't notice it at all. No problems.

Ha nice! Yeah that's funny I did the same thing. I told whoever shared that the same thing. They really dialed it in. I'm so glad I found that monitor. Second one.... hmm..... I have been pretty good this year unfortunately.

Yes the pixel density really makes the images smooth. I definitely notice the difference.

I sit about 2-3 feet:

I had the ROG Swift at first. Had 4 dead pixels right in the middle, and the backlight bleeding in the corners was pretty lame for the price. Definitely buy it somewhere that has a lenient return police like Amazon or Fry's.

Out of the box the display looks very washed out....but with these adjustments, man this thing is beautiful....totally the best TN panel I have ever used, and the motion clarity @ max FPS is sublime :)

He he... yeah I still rage every now and then but really once I slow down and take a look around and watch what other people are doing I've learned a lot. I still get frustrated a lot he he but the graphics are awesome. I just need more time to play it still. Come on lottery.

It doesn't appear smaller. Definitely more detailed. I made a few changes to windows I think to make fonts a little bigger but I don't really notice anything being small. Gaming definitely not.

Well yeah... what games that require 2 1080's? 3 monitors or something? :-O

He he I have the same case badges. The MSI Gaming badge is sweet.

Nice build. Didn't overspend like I did.

How do you like BF1? I like it... but was hoping for more vehicles like the good ol' days of BF42. I'm getting my *** kicked as I learn the maps. Kinda hard to see people and there are some frustrating glitches - like getting killed with a sword while you're hiding behind a wall or tree. But the graphics are really amazing.

Did you consider an SSD?

What do you do with all that GPU power? I like that MSI Gaming case badge.

Very cool! Man love the purple! So nice to see a build that isn't red and black.

Yeah I think SeaSonic actually makes PSU's for other companies? I recall reading that somewhere I thought. The packaging was really cool and the case badge was a nice touch.

Yeah I don't recall what the difference was - the latency was slightly higher than advertised. When I had the one bad stick and was using just the one 16 gb stick the latency using XMP was as advertised. Then when I got the new set it was a tad higher. I thought about returning it but I guess it wasn't high enough to care. Honestly I don't think I'll notice. But still kinda odd.

I used Corsair before but it was kind of hard finding sets that were approved for the motherboard based of the MSI website. The fact that they were red like all the other parts (although what isn't these days) kinda made it seem like it was meant to be. But yeah... I've heard good things about G Skill.

He he a little divine intervention never hurts. The chair warmer was free, but the daily treat costs keep rising. But it's worth it. Meow.

Yeah I learned a ton research parts. Pcpartpicker is a gem, as is HardOCP and all the folks that take the time to share their experience. Now if I could just stop getting my *** kicked in BF1. Sigh.

Lol. You wanted another black case ? I love the silver with blue lights. Has a lot of good memories attached to it I guess.

I just put that in my new build a couple of weeks ago. Super easy to install. BIOS recognized it and Windows 10 installed to it. No problems.
