+ Total (Canada):
My last computer I built probably 7 years ago. i7 920 overclocked with 12 GB DDR3, swapped the videocard a couple times, most recently with a 1060 6gb. But this machine struggled hard to play any modern games - ie. PUBG, Anthem, Hitman, Apex, etc.
So, I decided to try to build something that would last me awhile and provide me with the ability to upgrade in the future.
The 2080ti STRIX is amazing. It plays all new games on high very well. Paired with the 165 hz ROG monitor, its actually easier to get kills in FPS games.
The lighting took me awhile to figure out because Corsair fans are proprietary and the controller + rgb fan hub required had to be ordered directly from Corsair.
Overall the entire build looks great and performs really well. Boot time is non-existent. Frame rates are in 120-200 range, and it handles excel pretty well. Money well spent!
