    Booted up into my old old Windows 7 partition (which wasn't very happy to see completely new hardware, although it handled it quite well)

    Here's a WEI screenshot:




    And after installing new chipset, network, and nVidia drivers here's a new shot:




    Of course this old Win7 isn't on my SSD hence the slower bottleneck. Will add a Win8 WEI shot later

    Here's the Win 8 WEI screenshot that I never added:





    Also today I got around to updating the BIOS/UEFI firmware and then used a built in XMP profile to overclock the FSB.

    Core i5 CPU from 3.4GHz (3.6 with Turbo) to 4.1GHz
    16GB of DDR3 RAM now running at 2133MHz instead of 1600MHz

    I wonder if 16GB of DDR3 RAM @2133MHz was just a bit overkill?

    Nice to see my old gaming PC (2008-2012) is still loved



    Just the tower, plus I recently sold him my 680 GTX (was a 480 GTX before) to handle those triple screens.

    So I've built gaming PC's for myself in 2007, 2008, and 2012. The 2012 build started off with an nVidia GTX680, then in 2015 a Titan X Maxwell (900 series). I have always regretted listening to advice to get a $100 cheaper Intel i5 CPU over the i7 I had earmarked as it was slower at rendering videos than my previous Intel Q9550 Extreme. At some point in the past I switched PSU to reduce noise - I think now the Corsair H80i (set to Low) CPU cooler is the loudest thing in my PC at idle. I wonder how the fluid is after 5 years.

    I do a lot more than just game (but when I do I want max FPS for VR and 1440p Ultra). I also want to get as close to silent as possible without custom watercooling. Not shopping seriously just yet, especially looking at the total price so far (I also need to change my desk, and am not sure if I will build the PC directly into the desk or get a case).



    I'm sure I 'only' spent around $3500 on my 2008 build and closer to $2000 on the 2012 build (retaining some parts). Must be inflation.

    The ultrawide is for work purposes, to make it easier to design software interfaces, so obviously should be tax deductible somewhat (besides the 100Hz GSync specs, obviously). Seeing Rocket League opponents sneak up from the elongated sides may also be helpful, along with the higher than 60Hz refresh rate.


    The idea also is to see how much prices drop from over the next few months, and to see if Intel has an epic response to Ryzen.

    no, doesn't make sense, inflation rate in australia is around 1.5%, by your calculation it is around 14% per year. If you ask my opinion getting the most high end stuff is never feasible or efficient with technology. The fact that all of the items on that list will be outdated in a year doesn't make it worth spending the kind of money you would spend on a 2nd hand car. There's always a sweet spot, it's called the pareto principle. Also I wouldn't buy amd.

    Sorry the inflation thing was a joke.

    I don't really want to go AMD either, although the main tangible benefits to Intel are Optane and Thunderbolt, neither of which I care for. If Intel release an 1800 killer in the next few months then I'll be all over it. The CPU would probably cost more but I wouldn't have to spend extra on 3200MHz RAM as it probably won't impact game performance like it does for Ryzen.

    The storage costs are both unnecessary but I like the idea of a fresh start (with the exception of carrying over my 1TB SSD) and ditching 4x noisy WD Black 2TB drives with one quieter 8TB WD Red. It only spins at 5400 RPM but would be more for archival of recorded video from motorbike rides, etc. For the extra silence I think I can afford a 1MBps slower speed. The alternative is to get 4 of them to upgrade my QNAP NAS, but that is (a) a pain in the neck to move files around again and (b) much more expensive.

    I was hoping a new version of that monitor would be out by now so that I could choose between a price drop (if anyone stocks them) or any new features. I have a basic LG ultrawide at work which greatly aids productivity. I do of course agree that the price is bonkers, but at the same time it's just as expensive to start cheaper and upgrade sooner. My only exception to that rule is graphics cards which I'm always going to upgrade every 2-3 years and cannot be future-proofed. The 1080ti is 40-80% faster than my current GPU and as quieter than my reference card. That's a surprisingly massive jump for just 2 years progress - too bad Intel can't manage the same with their CPU's.

    My bottleneck right now is the CPU, which requires a whole new system. I'd rather sell or repurpose the entire new system than save a relatively small amount to keep things like PSU and storage. If I really want to reduce the initial cost I can postpone the PSU, GPU and storage upgrade.

    Unless you're into simulating galaxy models or rendering special effects for michael bay movies, a 7700k is good for anything you can throw at it. I'm waiting for the price to drop just a tad, gonna be building a new system myself this summer.

    Wait so now you reckon I need an i7?

    CPU's with >4 cores have historically performed worse than i7 CPU's because no-one developed for them, because hardly any gamers owned them, because they were far too expensive, because only Intel made decent ones. I see enough gamers getting 6-8 cores thanks to Ryzen which will incentivise developers to update their engines to make better use of them. One game/benchmark released a patch that saw Ryzen performance jump up 30% already. Don't forget that both PS4 and Xbox 1 have 8 core processors.

    Hopefully Skylake-X delivers the goods and at a competitive price.
    Rumor: Intel pulls X299 and Skylake-X release to late June - The Tech Report

    If benchmarks of either Ryzen or Intel X show much better rendering times and only minor frame rate losses in games I'll be all over it.

    well hyperthreading was a gimmick back then, now it is very beneficial for vr/rendering/higher resolution. Also you're the it guy you should know always go with the common hardware. Codes are written for intel then sort of ported for amd.

    1TB SSD, jeez!

    1080ti should be very nice

    Don't know if you know but I build computers for a living and that build would be awesome! (IT Technician)

    ok I lied, I've ordered them just now. I've substituted the gskill rams with corsair 3000mhz ones. Also threw in a CM 212 hyper cpu cooler. Since I have the old gtx760 still lying around along with my old hdd and case I have enough parts for 2 pcs, will be handy in LAN parties.
    Will be posting em once they arrive.

    Some initial plans - Ignore the desk colour (just need something to stand out).
