Built to play Witcher 3 decently and the like : ) Upgrading from a 3570k / GTX 660 that served me well since 2012.
Well reviewed and should last me a while hopefully. Regret not spending a bit more for the new 1151 boards I'm starting to see on sale, but oh well.
Highly recommend by Silent PC Review, that's all I needed to read.
Never did take advantage of the $30 rebate back in April/May. Good at $130, much better at $100. Again, some regret about now getting an 1151 board instead. But has nice color scheme, plenty of features, and many good reviews.
The prices just keeping dropping on these things. I may swap out for 16GB eventually.
Very, very fast. I got the ACHI instead of the NVME version, but the former isn't perceptibly slower the latter. I am limited in space, but don't plan on playing many games at once. Everything else is in the cloud or on a backup drive!
Have to remember to use my rebate! A very nice card, much improved over its red/black predecessor (no window, so it doesn't bother me that it doesn't match mobo).
Very happy with how solid and well thought-out/made this case is.
Another great deal - new, but lacking original packaging, from Amazon warehouse. Anxiously waiting months to complete build to see if it worked, but happily, it did. Invested in a PSU tester, but the cables were incompatible (always a good idea if getting non BNIB PSU's, though!)
We'll see. I miss 7 already!
