Hello, fellow D3Scene members,
I just got my new computer yesterday, and I thought I would share the specs and I would appreciate it if you would comment with what you think of it - I will also be posting my gear and what I will be buying relatively soon - feel free to comment about it, I would appreciate some feedback and whatnot.
Honestly, it was about time I got something new. Up until yesterday I had been using my MacBook Pro for everything, because I didn't have a desktop, and the Mac just didn't do well enough for gaming.
So, here goes...
Monitor: 22" ASUS VS228NE. Full HD, 1920x1080. - I will be upgrading to BenQ XL2420Z when I can afford it.
Keyboard: Razer BlackWidow Ultimate
Mouse: Razer Mamba. - I will be getting a new Mamba when I can afford it, as this current one I have is right about 5 years old now.
Headset: Razer Electra. - I will be upgrading to Razer Tiamat 7.1 when I can afford it.
Mousepad: SteelSeries QcK+ FNATIC Asphalt
Chassis: CM Storm Scout II Advanced Black
Motherboard: ASUS Z87-A
CPU: Intel Core i5-4670K
GPU: ASUS GeForce GTX 770 2GB
RAM: Kingston HyperX Beast 8GB 2400MHz
SSD: Samsung 840 EVO 120GB
HDD: WD Blue 1TB
Cooler: Cooler Master Seidon 120V (Watercooling)
Power Supply: XFX 650W
Operating System: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit. - Just thought I would mention it as many people seem to use Windows 8(.1) - not that I can understand why... in my opinion it sucks.
So, well, those are my specs and my gear. Any commenting or feedback is appreciated. Also, when I say feedback or comment, if you think I should have chosen something else than what I have in my build (computer), please do point it out, tell me and explain why you think something else had been better instead.
For anyone asking about fps etc... I get 450-999 fps in CSGO with low settings and 1024x768 resolution. It depends on the map, location and amount of players, but it seldom goes below 450 fps. And I tried playing Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 a few hours ago and it ran with 300+ fps on high settings and 1920x1080 resolution. I will be trying out BF3 within the next few days - going to be great actually trying to play that game with more than 25 fps (what I was used to on old laptop, never installed it on my Mac with Windows in dual-boot), especially since I have had BF3 since November 2011, lol.
Feel free to share your system as well. I'm sure there's some other thread about system posting, but I didn't want to gravedig.
