How'd I go broncospwn? I went with a high-end CPU Cooler as I plan on OCing at some point, couldn't justify the extra $150+ for the i7 8700K, as nice as it is, won't be using it for anything bar gaming.
Already ordered, so won't be making any changes :PThat's a sweet build.
I would definitely go for a 1080Ti. That's the most significant upgrade you can do and will mean you can 4K or ultrawide game if/when you do that. I would get a cheaper config of memory, or a 600/650W PSU (even 550 would be sufficient), or a cheaper case, I'm a huge fan of Fractal cases, and you can get an awesome one for cheaper than the Corsair case. Or keep what you ever and budget more for a 1080Ti
The i5-8600K stuff IIRC is better than the i7-7700K and OC's to 5GHz fairly easily, so plenty powerful for gaming, unlikely to bottle neck any but the most CPU intensive games. Really good choice of CPU.
That's part of the reason I bought it haha, I tried to play PUBG on my current rig (i5 4670 & GTX 760) and it was hell, couldn't crack 30 fps in high density areas on the lowest settings.Join our PubG squad you noob.
It's a dicey affair tbh. The communication at times is fantastic....That's part of the reason I bought it haha, I tried to play PUBG on my current rig (i5 4670 & GTX 760) and it was hell, couldn't crack 30 fps in high density areas on the lowest settings.
I've already got a squad that I game with, but I'm keen to have a game with you boys some time.
They addressed the issue.. by making it even larger than the D14..Excellent choice on the cooler although it will absolutely dominate the inside of your case. Easy to install, but make sure you've installed your memory sticks prior to fitting it. I had the D14 and you could get the sticks in and out, but you had to remove the fan on that side.....depending on your fan config anyway. They may have addressed the issue on the 15
