Right now I use it for websurfing, email, and remote logging into work. Yes its way overkill for that, but my old PC lasted for 10 years so I wanted to build something that would last me around as long. Yeah, I could have saved $100 or more (I was given a friends old video card), but I am hoping this will be good for many years. My wife doesn't think it was worth the time. I told here that if anything goes wrong I'll know how to fix it/replace it, and NEXT time I build a PC I'll be experienced. :-)
I watched many youtube videos, and asked some questions here. The build was relatively smooth and straight forward, though it took several hours/
minor problems - 1. The system booted up fine so I moved it and got the dreaded video card error about not sensing a DP connection. When I moved it I stupidly connected to the mobo and not the video card. Took me 30 minutes of curing to figure that out.
- I must not have set up the case to mobo jumpers correctly the first time. I reread the configuration diagram and it worked.
It went relatively smoothly. I'm glad I was able to resolve the problems on my own. In truth it wasn't difficult, just new.
I watched a couple of youtube videos before installing it and they helped a lot.
Reattaching the fans with the Clips was a little difficult, taking a couple of minutes. Whisper quiet.
Very easy to work with. Great air flow. Great cable management.
Great for productivity (not used for gaming). Crisp image with nice colors. I like the ergonomics - I can rotate the monitor 90 degrees or raise/lower it and tilt up/down.
I bought this cheap because its an older model. I'm happy saving 1/3 of the purchase price of a virtually identical newer model (U2719D)
Large Hands - productivity not gaming
I LOVE this mouse for productivity. ( I don't game. ) I don't care about RGB. I love the tactile feel size and shape. Its the best mouse I've ever used.
