I like it a lot, the black is maybe a tad plain, but mine is non rgb and sits next to my other build in a corsair 570x mirror finish case.
As with any build it depends what you're doing with it; I would expect it to be perfectly fine without, if you're not stressing it for long periods :)
No issues :)
At the time of looking at everything, the Evoke reviewed extremely poorly (GN thermal issues) which wrote it off for us. Also the gold seems more pink gold too
Exactly, I think the 2600/580 combo is pretty good tbh, esp if youre after 1440 at 75fps, you dont have to turn much down! It even runs quieter than the main beast!
I do aim to be the best host out of all of my friends; this is my new trump card on that front!
If you're based in the UK, don't get this case, it's waaay overpriced here apparently, 20% of your budget on a case seems a bit high for me.
So, the stand is the only real problem, and it's not like a big one. It's just a little on the wobbly side, and has no height/tilt adjust. It is vesa mountable so that would resolve that. as yet, ive had no issues with it, it's pretty damn good
Don't get the Gigabyte Windforce card, there are so many people who have been having issues with it, it is far and away the worst third party vega 56. I just had to RMA mine.
