Description

After using my pc for about 4 months now i have to say its a great machine for gaming at high to ultra settings at 1080p, streaming and video editing.

Intel Core i5-4690K 3.5GHz Quad-Core This was a great cpu to pick it can handle all the latest games at 1080p without bottlenecks, it can handle many programs at the same time like when im streaming and i have my stream open , my chat, my alerts, music video and a skype call. I haven't overclocked on this chip as i only have the stock cooler, but will definitely look into it. I got this on a xmas offer on scan.

MSI Z97S SLI Krait Edition ATX LGA1150 This motherboard was a bit pricey to start with but now I love it the colour scheme matches mine it comes with great features such as usb 3.0, 2 way SLI, up yo 32gb ram and supports up to an i7. I have a hard drive and an SSD plugged in at the moment but it has plenty of sata ports for more and i am only using 1 gpu but there is room for another one.

Kingston HyperX Fury Blue 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3-1866 I did originally only plan to have 8gb of ram but when i saw the price for 16gb i went for it its fast and can handle anything i try(it also matched my colour scheme).

Crucial BX100 250GB 2.5" SSD I had spoke to my friend adam he had said about going for a crucial SSD the 128gb, but again when i saw the price difference for 250gb it made more sense to buy the bigger one and its BLAZING fast boots windows in under 7 seconds and has plenty of space for my applications.

Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM I had to replace my old seagate barracuda and went for one of these so far i have had no problems with it but at the time of writing this i have only had it about a week.

Zotac GeForce GTX 970 4GB I wasnt going toi buy a gtx 970 but i was going to buy a 4gb gtx 960, but then Aria had a deal that when buying a qualify card it would come with rainbow six siege and they dropped the price to £215 which for a 970 was to good to pass. I have all of my games set to High to ultra at 1080p and get roughly 70-80 fps.

Silverstone PS11B-W ATX Mid Tower I picked out this case because it come with 1 blue led fan and had a good window, but after buying it and now using I realised its too bulky and would not buy again, but it dose have plenty of cable management holes and zip ties and has 2 housing for SSd's and a hard drive cage with 3 slots.

Corsair 650W ATX12V / EPS12V I have no complaints its quiet its cool and its just perfect.

The dell monitors one was a hand me down and one i bought on ebay.
