RE: Finally building a new gaming rig!
So I finally got the e-mail I've been waiting for.

EVGA
-We are happy to announce that your Step-Up request has completed the queue process and is ready for final processing.



About fucking time.

Cool.

How long were you waiting for that?

I want to know what EVGA do with the old products sent back to them.

Having a system with heavy configuration is good for playing games. I also have a similar configured system which is only used for video games.

Well, looks like they've finally okay'd everything and shipped out my Step-Up GTX970, and it will be delivered by end-of-day this upcoming Tuesday. So once I have that, I'll pull out my rig and give it a good dusting, finally install the backplate they already shipped me for my first GTX970, and install the second one in SLI. I already had the extra power cables from my PSU installed and ready to go, so that's one less thing I have to worry about doing at least.

Cool, another step to the finish line then?

Yeah, or until some piece on it shits-the-bed. I don't see myself getting a monitor larger than 1080p anytime soon, and the one I have is only a year old (my last one was the original monitor from my old 2008 build, so it lasted 5 years). My sister will be graduating next year, so I was thinking about building her a PC. By then Z97 chipset boards will be cheaper and no longer the newest chipset, and the Broadwells will be out. I might buy myself a new Broadwell i7 and put my Haswell-E i5 into a machine for her. Just a thought, might not even happen, but it's an idea; especially if my brother and I both get in on it and make it a joint project.

But yeah, I currently have the fastest i5 available, on the latest Intel chipset, and will be running in SLI the best bang-for-your-buck GPU's, which should make my 1080p gaming a solid and enjoyable experience for quite a while. I can't see any reason why this setup won't run Fallout 4 and Killingfloor 2 smooth as butter, especially given the current bar being set by the consoles. My machine currently runs the original Killingfloor and PAYDAY 2, some of the biggest time-sinks that I have, at 120FPS without breaking a sweat. It ran Crysis 3 on High settings at a very respectable 80+ FPS on average, and SLI should allow me to push that graphical benchmark to Very High without dipping below 60 FPS.

Oh yeah, did I forget to mention how much I can't wait for Fallout 4 and Killingfloor 2? We need that shit playable, like yesterday!

Be thankful for what you've got, I figure.

For the time being, I'm still stuck with my glorified calculator.

Soon though... Buying a PC piecemeal is rather frustrating...

RE: Finally building a new gaming rig!
Still waiting to finish my build with a nice graphics card. I've decided to go for a single Nvidia even though I have a 750 watt power supply. I do have other demands on my money though. I need to start preparing for my driving test again. I had to put it on hold while living in Germany. I want to start paragliding again and I need to save enough money so I can move back to Germany after 18 months.

RE: Finally building a new gaming rig!
I'm trying to justify an upgrade to a Samsung 4K display.
And the video card upgrade required to feed it.
And the power supply upgrade to feed that.
It would only be about $1100 all up. That's not a lot of money, right?
It is a lot of money Sad

Give me your argument in the form of a published paper, and then we can start to talk.
