Description

This is my first and only built Rig. I do plan on getting either a 1080 or a 1080Ti in the next year, hopefully when the price drops further. I really enjoy the Corsair 750D Case, it's a full ATX Full Tower case that allows flexibility and looks good doing so. The black brushed metal in the front and the tempered glass side panel are great and showcases the monster within.

I am very satisfied overall with the build and very excited to upgrade in the future. I think it is future proof even for another year or two. I am aiming at upgrading from a 1070 which by the way is probably the greatest bang for your buck giving it's capability. I chose the single blower ASUS 1070 as I focused on limiting the airflow within the case as much as possible, that's not to say that I can't get performance out of the card because it delivers flawless gaming experience.

Hope you enjoy it and stay tuned for more upgrades in the future.

Update May 27th, 2017

I purchased the KRIËGER KL3327B • Triple Monitor Desk Free Stand which I will add to the part's list. I wanted to get something like this due to my limited space on the desk. This stand is very sturdy, easy to install and easy to maneuver. The center monitor has it's attaches to the main vertical stand, while the two outside monitors are screwed onto the arm, and the arm then goes onto the vertical stand.

Not only does it look very nice to have a stand with 24' monitors on it, the practicality of having the stand outweighs anything else.

Also, I had a 750Ti laying around so I installed it and made it a dedicated Physx card, of course not all games utilize such feature but playing on GTAV, Rocket League has been even better after installing that GTX 750Ti.

I'll continue to update this as I make changes to the build.

Thanks for you support.

+1 for fitting THREE monitors on that tiny *** table, I had the same table until a few days ago and barely managed to fit one ultrawide on the thing
