Description

Hi all,

I built this rig with VR in mind. It's been a while since I got into PC Gaming but Virtual Reality being on the horizon really gave me the stimulus to do a proper VR Build.

Most of these parts have been sourced from various forums including the GTX Titan X, the Asus PG278Q monitor. The CPU is a 4770K running at a conservative 4.3GHZ with a NZXT X61 AIO Water cooler.

The casing is a NZXT H440 (Razer Edition), which was chosen due the stealthly matt black finish.

Finally I picked up a Ducky Shine 5 Mechanical RGB Keyboard with Cherry Brown MX switches, which feels absolutely heavenly to type on.

So far i've only been playing Cities:Skyline, and Battlefield 4 plus a bunch of Steam Indies but really waiting for a game to really push this system to its limits.

Thanks for following, all the best.

VR might need the extra vram though

RAM doesn't increase or decrease VR ability after a certain point. 4 GB is plenty for VR.

Not true, the titan x outperforms a 980 ti.

Granted, for the price, the 980 ti is definitely the better choice.

Interesting.. Gold 80+ Certified Thermaltake Tough Power, is there any anecdotal evidence to suggest this is Tier 4 as you say?

Everything i've researched indicates this is closer to a Tier 2 or 3.

I bought it off a forum member for pretty cheap. I was looking at a Gigabyte G1 980ti, but this second hand Titan X came up at the last minute.

Funny story how he came to have it though. He had 64gb of DDR that he swapped with a local PC store for it, why he had that much memory I don't know (he's a student at a local college by the way). Then his girlfriend booted him out of their house, and he needed money for a car. So he sold the Asus 27" gsync monitor and Titan X to me for about 1k usd. Only drawback is no warranty receipts.

Me neither. Think he was studying Game Development at college.
