Finally building a new PC  Reply with quote  

So yeah.....after many years it is time to quietly take my i7-970, GTX580 system out behind the barn and put it out of its misery. The old girl aged gracefully....

Have a case (much smaller this time), ram, PSU and video card on the way now. Already have the motherboard and CPU. It should be ready by the April LAN.

More details to follow Very Happy

So I gots a box today....



And what do you know....it does contain awesome



not the happiest about it being a Zotac but it's the only one I could snag on launch day....EVGA came in stock briefly on Monday and I got lucky enough to nab one...so this will hold me over for the week until the EVGA one comes (then this Zotac is going to a friend but not before trying some oh so sweet SLI).



Mmmmmm so pretty.....I stroked it gently for a long while...... Very Happy


And then for shits and giggles I decided to see what going from a 580 to a 1080ti is like.....enjoy the screenshots....


What my aging system did with the GTX 580



And the 1080ti improved it just a little bit.......

What is the recommended monitor now with an nvidia setup? I haven't purchased one in 5-6 years.

Yep.....this. have it on the list as this card is bit overkill for 1080p
