First things first sorry for the quality of photos all I have to take photos is an iPhone 4S and the camera quality is not the best.
So the initial concept was to have a powerful gaming/university build that would last me until the end of my degree, but now it is primarily a gaming rig.
I use the machine for gaming, internet browsing, video rendering and day to day word processing.
Most games play at 60+ FPS although more modern heavily taxing games run at around 45 FPS, all at max settings.
It can render a 20 minute video in just over 90 mins.
Comments and questions are always welcome.
Thanks to the people commenting I have decided to upgrade to a better GPU (Radeon R9 390 8GB) which for £5 more than the 290 4GB is a steal. I have also decided on increasing my PSU to 750 Watts and finally a much better, much quieter liquid CPU cooler.
See link for listed upgrades.
Fast responsive CPU but it runs really hot, I have the MOBO set to a lower BIOS while I get some more money to upgrade the CPU cooler and then I will be able to unleash the full power of this beauty.
A very cheap, effective way to boost your boot up time. Great storage capacity with excellent read speeds.
Reliable storage solution combined with my SSD gives my rig fast reliable boot times and large storage capacity.
Good but a little out dated now it is a cheap way of getting a lot of graphical memory. however it is an old chip set now and it shows its age by not quite giving the performance you need.
One word - Beautiful, however the fans that come with the case are louder than expected and the overall size is a troubling issue when factoring in real world applications.
Great piece of kit fast burning, fast reading however the drive is loud and everyone is aware when it spins up.
