A bit of an introduction here, as I’ve never made an appearance in this thread. I grew up without the benefits of modern technology. My family are very simple people, and computers just weren’t their forte. Couple that with having grown up in a town of less than 3,000 people in rural Texas, and I was using a Compaq on Dial-Up until 2008.
Fast forward 8 years, several degrees, and a thorough amount of self-instruction regarding computers and other computing-based technologies, and here I am today.
This is what my current setup looks like. Looking to upgrade the GPU in the near-future to the 1080 once availability becomes less of an issue, but it all works for now.
Case: HAF 922
PSU: Cooler Master 750W
Motherboard: Asus Maximus VII Formula
RAM: 4x4GB Corsair Vengance DDR3 @ 1600 Mhz
CPU: i7-4790k @ 4.2 Mhz
Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO
GPU: EVGA GTX 780
Drives: 2x Samsung SSD (180GB C:/ | 500GB A:/) & 2x Western Digital HDD (2TB B:/ | 750GB D:/)
OS: Win7 Home Premium (x86)
Out of idle curiosity, anyone from Kaza looking to get into the new 10-series of Nvidia cards at all?
They just announced the 1060 at a $250 price point, with claims that it exceeds the current specs of the 9-series. For people trying to get into slightly more graphic intensive setups while avoiding the top-end GPU market, this card might possibly open up some doors for people. And for not a lot more, the 1070 doesn’t look bad for someone with an extra $200 to throw at it.
