This build is purely for gaming and movies. I play competitive cs go on a daily basis, as well as other casual games such as GTA V. This build was put together over time and undergone a lot of changes, however I believe it is now near its final form. I am looking to purchase a 40inch 4k monitor in the near future for 4k Blu ray when it comes out. (I am planning to wall mount it above my existing benq, have it tilt downward so I can lie back on my dxracer and watch movies)
CPU: sold my old I5 3570k and upgraded to this when it was on sale, so didn't have to fork out too much extra money for it.
GPU: Brilliant piece of equipment that has given me amazing gaming experience for the past 2 years. I can run pretty much all games on ultra settings in 1440p whilst maintaining 50-60 fps.
Case: Very spacey, perfect for future upgrades and airflow. It's also very good looking, but I prefer keeping it under my desk to give myself more space
Monitor: Best monitor I have ever had to this point. 144hz + benq's blur reduction functionality = buttery smooth game play in cs go. (it has certainly helped my gameplay as I went quickly up to LEM from MG2 after using this monitor). Freesync technology perfects the gaming experience, it really is worth the extra money. For a TN panel, it's picture quality has exceeded my expectations, it is certainly equivalent to entry level LED panel which is amazing.
Corsair K65 RGB: Sold my old K70 on eBay for £75, bought k65 RGB for £80 on black friday, 5 quid for better lighting? Fk yeah!
