Nah I just got the medium, but DTC.co.nz stock small, medium, large and the big extended one you're talking about. Everything I couldn't find from Computer Lounge during their recent 11% off everything sale I got from DTC and they were really good actually. They didn't have the 2666 RAM I wanted in stock so gave me the 2800 at no extra charge.

 

The red lights are from the two stock fans that came with the case. Debating whether to swap them out for blue, but I'm kind of liking the variation.

Awesome thanks.

 

I have a similar issue with my cooling fan at the back. It is blue....and the rest of the fans in the front and the RAM etc are all red :(

Nice Build Rebus. Damn that must of cost you a fair bit! Guessing your case is a full tower? going to SLI or XFire one day? (gathered from the 750PSU like mine, options there)

Hah, apologies, yeah some of those Dutch angles of the Windforce were a tad explicit. Yep chinaman will be aiming for SLI next year. The whole rig certainly cost a fair bit but the Computer Lounge 11% Off Everything Sale recently netted me about $480 in savings, and the only reason I could afford it is because I've been in the gaming wilderness for the past three years while I saved and budgeted my arse off. Now I'm set up I can keep on top of upgrading every other year or so.

In a word. Beautiful. Am pleased it comes with a DisplayPort option as well as HDMI ports as that 60Hz sure looks good. Haven't pushed it to 4K yet as I just have one GPU, I don't want tot push it too far after just getting it. But even 1440p is a whole new world to me. Yeah, couldn't be happier.

 

Good to hear. Can't go wrong with Asus. Even their 27 inch 1440p monitor looks really good.

I just completed my first build a couple day ago!!

 

Case: Corsair 250D

Motherboard: ASUS H97i

GPU: ASUS 970

CPU: 4690 with stock cooler

RAM: Corsair LP (2x4GB)

PSU: Cooler Master V550

SSD: 840 Evo 250GB

 

Monitor: ASUS ROG Swift - PG278Q

 

looking to swap out that stock Intel cooler for a H100i. Apparently the Corsair 250D is made for it. Can get a little loud under load. 

The monitor + G-Sync is amazing. Incredibly smooth..

 

edit: ^^ Oh wow Gnome you have the same monitor! How are you enjoying it? I need to get some decent/budget speakers as well. Are those the Z200s? I was looking at the same model. How do they sound?

Lol yes same monitor. It is fantastic so far. No screen tearing, 1440p looks amazing and high frames make games so smooth. 27 inches seems like a good size as well. Easily able to fit two documents or browser windows on one page.

 

Very happy so far. I'm sure you'll enjoy using it :)

 

The speaks are Z200's. I guess they sound good? Only paid $30 when they were on special. I'm not really an expert in audio but I think they are decent. They look pretty nice as well which is a bonus I guess considering their small price.

Sweeet. Do you have a G-Sync capable card? I'll just be using the speakers for youtube vids so i'm sure they'll be fine. They do look nice.

I do. EVGA GeForce GTX 980 Super Clocked :)

 

Honestly for the price I think the Z200's are your best bet.

Might I just say, a fine choice of mouse there sir. I have the very same and it's a joy to use. As for the H100i, I just installed one recently and haven't had any issues with it at all. My next goal is to join the ROG Swift gang.

Indeed. Paired with the 144Hz it is spectacular. Browsing and scrolling is a joy. 

 

I managed to get the Swift for $1274, pretty good given RRP in NZ. IDK i think i made silly price match on Mighty Ape and they agreed! Saved a good $50.

Some very nice hardware in this topic - it's making my old workhose look rather .... bad ;)

 

I put this rig together in 2009, added some bits (mainly storage), swapped some parts (mainly broken RAM and PSU), but it still does the job for BF3 and GOW and my photo editing work. (PS/LR).

 

I won't put a pic up since my office is so full of crap, that I would have to dig out my case in order for it to show up in the photo!

 

CPU: Intel Q9550 2.83Ghz Quadcore (stock with stock cooler)
Motherboard: ASUS P5Q SE2
Memory: G.Skill 8GB (4x2) DDR2 (replaced Corsair XMS2 DD2 RAM that failed twice now)
Storage: Samsung 840 PRO 120GB SSD + Kingston V 120GB SSD
Storage: WD 2TB Black, WD 1TB Black (x2), Seagate 320GB (x2) in RAID-0
Video Card: XFX ATI 4890 1GB
Case: Thermaltake Element S (Brilliant!)
Power Supply: Corsair CX600
Optical Drive: LG SATA DVD-RW
Operating System: Windows 7 64-bit Home Premium
Monitor: HP 2335  23" S-IPS
Headphones: Microsoft USB headset - replacement for my legendary Plantronics that died :(
Keyboard: Microsoft Digital Media Pro
Mouse: Logitech G400
Mouse Pad: Some Razor gaming pad
 
All of the gear was purchased at Playtech.co.nz - which have delivered great service over the years. (Swapping my defective XFX 4870 for a 4890 as the '70 wasn't in stock, replacing the Corsair RAM several times until suggesting to replace it with G.Skill which has worked fine for me, etc.).
 
I've always been very fickle about my cases and I have used Antec cases since '99 - I couldn't find the case I wanted here in NZ (and shipping from the USA would have been stupidly expensive) so I went with the Thermaltake Element S ... and what a beauty she is, plenty of space for all the hard disks, which are all mounted at a 90 degree angle from most cases, so that the front of the HDD faces the large side panel.. making it very easy to just slot them into their screw-less slots. Case also comes with a large side panel fan, a good size top fan and two in-take and two extraction fans on the top and rear of the case, blowing cold air over the hard drive bays - none of the fans are overly noisy too.

Also how is the driver situation for AMD cards these days?

What are the parts you have already?

 

Uni PC....? Will you be gaming? Do you need a GPU? What Games? What monitor? What resolution? 

 

With 1K you could get some decent bits...

SSD? How large is it? Cause you will probably need another HDD just for storing general crap. My SSD was 128GB I think, but I can basically only fit Windows, user data and general applications like drivers and the like, only have 30GB left.
