Overkill for what i need now as i only game at 1080p but i wanted something that would last me a good few years. I game on a 42" TV and i will be buying a decent (low lag) 4k TV with the next few month. I also like to be able to turn every setting up to max.
Processor: Overclocked to 4.4ghz and runs like a dream. I nearly bought an i7 for fear of bottlenecking but i really don't see that happening. Could always upgrade down the line if need be.
CPU Cooler: Very quiet. Processor sits at about 38-39c on idle and gets up to about 69-70c while gaming. Little hotter than i would like. I may downclock the CPU to around 4.0ghz to see if that drops the temps a little.
RAM: More than enough to last me a few years.
Motherboard: Has good reviews and allows me to OC the processor.
Storage: Would like more total storage but SSD's are expensive. Got the 480GB on Amazon prime day for £92.99 which was an absolute bargain. Boots to windows in about 10 seconds. Once windows 10 is released on the 29th of July i will be installing that.
PSU: Read good reviews for this PSU and it was in the top tear lists. Made by seasonic and very reliable (So im told!)
Case: My second build with this case. Excellent little case. Easy to work with and looks good. Word of warning though. The MSI GTX 980 ti JUST fits into this case. It was VERY difficult to connect the power cables to the GPU. The side vents have no dust filters so i made some with a pair of tights (Not mine!) I used magnetic tape and stretched the tights around it. Works perfectly. You can see in one of the pictures.
GPU: Its a monster! What can i say. I only game at 1080p and its runs everything with all the bells and whistles. As you would expect it too! I've used a few other GPU's in the past 6 months. MSI R9 290x, Sapphire R9 280, ASUS Strix GTX 970 and this 980 TI. The has the least amount of coil whine. I can hardly hear it. Some games it has none! The 970 had quite a bit and was really annoying! It's seems all GPU's have it to some extent these days. I have not OC'ed the GPU as i don't see the point at 1080p. Once i get a 4K TV i probably will. GPU runs at about 32c on idle and around 65-75c underload which is fine.
