Hi guys, I assembled  a new i7 system 2 months back, just wanted to share here the specs and all

 

Asus Z270A motherboard

Intel i7 7700k 4.2 Ghz

Gigabyte Radeon Rx 480 8GB DDR5

Corsair 16GB DDR4 RAM

Primary Disk 512 GB SSD

Secondary Disk 2 TB SSHD

Corsair v650 Power supply

Corsair wireless gaming keyboard and mouse

Corsair Black gaming tower with Cooler master cooling system

 

The total cost was $1280. Excluding the 4K monitor that i got 2 weeks back

 

I bought a good second hand monitor for about $280. Acer UHD4k XB280HK 28"

 

Moreover, I have ordered a new supply machine of 850v and a very powerful graphic card. Titan Xp. That would make my total cost go to $2580.

 

Give your feedback on the machine and tell me what more I can do with it. Suggest me some games to test my machine and more powerful parts. But keep that in mind, I won't be able to shop for any parts now till November as I have spent all the major chunk of my savings on this beast. :P

Isn't the Titan XP substantially more expensive as the 1080Ti for like ....5-10% more gaming performance?

 

As for things to test...

 

Hard to find a more stunning game than BF1 with all details set to high! Every blade of grass with a shadow, every rock and wall with awesome texture...love that game!

 

Enjoy that rig, some of us must 'make do' with a GTX1060 at 1080P! :)

You'll be hard-pressed to find a more demanding game than RollerCoaster Tycoon 2. You'd need some proper cooling for your rig, as this game usually provides for some intense gameplay. Even then I'm not sure if your machine would be able to handle it.
