Computer builds

I gotcha. Everything for a decent price, and all of it is rather overkill lmao.

Also, you can OC the GPU with that board, since it's all software-based. #googlefu

What kind of PC monitor will be the mainstream from now on?
There is nothing which corresponds to 4K+HDR yet, so It's a very difficult decision.^^;

With the 1080 you can play any game at woth 4k with a least 30 fps...but not always stable. So fps drops might happe.
I can recommend the palit 1080 gamerock ..with this one i get 40 fps on an 28" 4k Monitor

I built this over the course of the summer decent parts. The power supply is kinda overkill, really. I just took it from my previous build. Shoulda just got a new one. Only thing I could see myself using its full potential is dual 1080's?

Here's a link to the gallery with the list I have above (sans monitors):

@Ry. Yep, pretty much lmao.

And since were in this thread, I was wondering what a semi-decent laptop for school would be? Something with power but decently priced (Under ~1000 or so, though I'm not afraid to splurge for the "right" computer)

Posting specs? I've got two!

Desktop (custom build):
-CPU: AMD FX-8350 @ 4.4 GHz
-CPU cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO
-Motherboard: ASRock 990FX Killer
-SSD: 120G SanDisk SSD Plus
-HDDs: 1TB WD Black, 500GB Toshiba... thing.
-Case: NZXT Source 210
-Displays: an old Acer 1440x900 and a 1080p TV (both 60Hz)

Laptop! It's a Dell Inspiron i7559.
-CPU: Intel i5-6300HQ
-GPU: Nvidia GTX 960m 4GB
-SSD: 256G Toshiba M.2
-HDD: Some HGST 1TB drive
-Screen: 1920x1080 60Hz IPS

Edit! @GranTurismoT My laptop was only around $800, and they have a newer model lineup with Kaby Lake i5/i7s and GTX 1050/Ti chips. Really good value!

Yeah. I think I'm going to try and go for a 1070'd laptop just to have for LAN or build a mini-ITX. My MSI Apache Pro's 960m is wonky with a few games and its afterburner fans kinda make my lap all hot when not on a flat surface (ie airplains and travel)
