Here I was, just having finished high school and with a lot of saved up money and time, thinking that my 5 year old MacBook Pro ( worst purchase of my life) wasnt enough anymore.
In my freetime I love to watch youtube videos and it just so happend that I came across various videos regarding the upcoming Star Citizen game. I was so fascinate by the scale and graphical fidelity and at that moment decided to get a computer that can run the Beta asap! I started watching tons of videos on how to build computers, different parts, performance, upcoming tech and so on, checked PCPP and Reddit every houer, started making Partlists, checking out retailers for sales and avaiability; it really fast became and addiction.
Fast forward 3 months and I have not only build my dream PC but renovated my entire room to create a cool setup. I went with a very simple and clean look that doesnt look too "gamerish".
Initially I wanted to go with a 1440p monitor and something like a 980 Ti, but I quickly fell in love with ultrawide monitors and ended up buying the Dell U3415W. Now that I had a monitor with such an insane pixelcount I also had to up my GPU game and, in the end, went all out with the GTX 1080. I guess I can say that im not good at sticking to my budget but hey, I think the result is more then worth it!
Looks really nice and is extremly quiet. The only problem is that the installation is annoying, but if you have someone to help its no problem.
Really sturdy and simple MOBO. Perfect for an all black build!
Feels like heaven after using Harddrives until now. Can only recommend!
What a beast of a card! Runs very quiet and looks amazing. I managed to OC it to 2088 with peaks up to 2114.
"Cheapest" of the 34' 1440p monitors with a curve. Not only a dream to play on (if your hardware can drive it) but also great for media consumption and productivity!
