Hello! Back from being gone a long time - and new Build!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello!

So I'm back from the 'dead.' Don't remember my original screen name so made a new-ish one awhile ago and using that now.

I finally replaced my old q9550 - gtx295 this week! Here's the new build.

MSI G45 'gaming' motherboard
i5-4670k
The usual Hyper 212+ cooler. I'm OC'd only to 4ghz but so far it's keeping the Haswell plenty cool!
16gb Patriot "Intel Extreme Masters" memory
MSI gtx 780
2tb HDD w/HDD Boost connected to a 120gb Samsung SSD
3tb USB 3.0 external (I play all my steam games off this drive)


I'm totally diggin' the new build! I had a GTX 770 originally but it came damaged so I'm returning it for the GTX 780 which will come this Friday.

Do you guys think this is enough for Minecraft?! (just kidding)


As far as my personal life goes and who I am. I'm 30 years old, work in Fresno California at a market research software firm. I'm married with 2 little girls, 2.5 years and 9 months. Tons of fun!

I like fishing, RC cars and planes (I race on weekends,) and of course computer gaming. If you like playing games and are a non-cusser (gotta keep it family friendly!) feel free to add me to steam! yoster_ac@hotmail.com



As far as future upgrades go, I've been kicking around one of those Korean 1440p monitors.. but I just don't know. I hear a lot of people say that at the end of the day, they still prefer 1080p for gaming. Mostly because 1440p looks bad at 1080p it sounds like.. for games that only support that for instance. I'm not sure what to do. My current monitor is only 2 years old - it's a TV actually - a 26" LED 1080p display by AOC. Works pretty well I think.

Then I'm also considering getting one of those mechanical keyboards or a gaming mouse. I think the keyboard is more of a "I want it" rather than an "I need it" type of thing, so I'll have to weigh out the options lol.

Thanks for reading!
