Project Nightingale

PhotoScape




Well hello again OCN I had to cancel my old 8350 rig I decided to stop being a AMD fanboy, and now i'm a fanboy of hardware thumb.gif

This would be my first build log ever I'm so excited. My current Rig is far to old[Q6700+5770] I figured its bout' time I build new rig. I chose the name Nightingale because its the Mobile Suit Char Aznable used I really love Gundam wubsmiley.gif so a lot of the inspiration for this build will be from there. I'm going to be using this rig for gaming I play Guild Wars 2 primary but I've started to take an interest in Crysis 3 and BF3/BF4 so I want to be able to play all of them on very high @ 1440p. I will be doing a little bit of folding, mining video editing and streaming also. I do plan on watercooling it extensively I plan on overclocking the GPU and 4770k. I hope I can get the 4770k to 5ghz but I plan on keeping it at 4.6ghz daily hopefully i'll get a good chip and of course I'm going to de-lid thumb.gif. I will be buying monitors very soon I am going with two 27 inch monitors I am looking at the Korean monitors Qnix, Catleap and Achieva don't know which one to choose redface.gif . The theme i'm aiming for is a Black and White, the tubing and PSU cables will be white while everything else will be black. I will be updating this thread as I buy my other parts thumb.gif







Hardware







Watercooling Setup





Future Upgrades

Sound Card: Essence STX
  • I want my sound to be perfect for music and gaming I still need help choosing an amp, heaphones, speakers and sub I know the sound card I will be using though. My budget is $250 for the headphones and $500 for everything else so advice is welcomed.

Monitors: Qnix or Catleap or Achieva
  • As I stated before I need to decide which one of these I should pick I wanna hear some opinions.

I'd say stick with Asus monitors, 1ms or 2ms response. There's a reason MLG uses them, they are godly when it comes to gaming. I can vouch, have an Asus myself, 23" 2ms LCD and it has some of the best quality I've ever seen. Stick to ASUS!

If your running dual monitors you might wanna try a dual xfire 7850s setup for 100 more. They scale pretty decent
