Hi gorks it has been a while. In true time honoured tradition I present to you my good sirs a new build. Context. So for the last 5 years or so I have stuck with teh same primary gaming PC setup more or less. They have been a few graphics card changes but the system for the most part remained the same. I did even one and a half years ago buy a whopping 900d case and watercooling for a project I never completed. So I have been on holiday this week and decided I would do it. So originally my upgrade plans were a new monitor and a gfx card. But in BFB tradition if you are going to upgrade then go all the way or not at all. So for my choice of monitors there were only two that actually interested me. I don't care about G/sync or monitors that do over 60hz. So everyone knows I only do Dell monitors and everyone also knows I only do IPS monitors. The choices were 32' Dell 4k or the Dell 34' Ultrawide. In the end I went with the Ultrawide. I could of been happy with both but when I was reading up on them and looking at other people setup I just felt the Ultrawide was the way to go. Also another primary reason is due to old age my eyesight is failing. If apps and what not, support it and allow you to scale that's great but if not I don't want to be putting my eyes under more strain. The other upgrade was a graphics card. I haven;t changed my graphics card in an eternity. Which in reality is not long but in my book and anyone else that knows me 'an eternity'. I bought the 780ti as soon as it came out. I was going to switch to the fury X but when I saw the pricing and then the performance while good but not earth shattering I went with the Nvidia option. When the 980 was released I nearly pulled the trigger on it but knowing Nvidia practices I knew within a short period they would release a Ti version. They did this with the 780's as I have had both the SLI 780 and SLI 780 Ti setups. So I was going to get a 980 Ti. But something happened...and it did not go that way...well not quite... As much as I love my 2600k setup I felt that my setup on features was lacking behind the times so I started to look at a 4790k setup. Then Skylake was released. With that support for the m.2 standard. If I went with a z97 setup my SSD's were still bottlenecked by the Sata 3 controller limits and SSD technology if using SATA 3. So then I switched my sights to a Z170 setup and Skylake. So I knew this was going to set me back about 800 quid for the setup which was fine and within budget I had. But then I noticed a x99 5930k setup cost the same. So to me it made more sense to go the x99 route. I luckily enough found a 5930k setup used on OCUK for a reasonable price of 550 quid so it was cheaper than buying skylake or the x99 setup brand new. So I got that.... I thought "Great now I can build it in my 900D case"... But then I realised that I have nothing to stick in it besides a mother and cpu and graphics card. All of media (porn) is being switched over to a NAS and also due to teh fact I have so many gadgets which can accept streaming media a dedicated NAS/Media streamer made more sense. I don;t have any HDD's due to the aformentioned NAS and no SSD's as I didn;t want to be bottlenecked by the SATA 3 limitations. So I ordered a Synology DS1515+, WD Red 6tb drive and a samsung sm951 Nvme pci-e SSD. And seeming teh 900D is way too overkill for this build I got a new case even though I already have 2x corsair cases already. So I got a Corsair 760t to do the build. Sigh :/ But it doesn't end there. Of course it doesn't. So for my last few build I have mostly gone with Gigabyte windforce, Evga classifieds or MSI lightning. So I was set on getting the Gigabyte windforce 980 ti and was about to click the 'But Now' button but then I was scuppered again by what I can only describe as 'intervention of the gork gods' and ended up buying 2x KFA 2 Hall of fame 980ti cards. It is only what I can describe as a 'lolwut' moment. Most of the stuff is already built and ready to go just waiting on the cards which should be here tommorrow. Pics to follow as usual. I do hope you enjoyed the yores of derpiness that is I. I may have been absent from these forums for quite a long time but if there is one I can assure you of is 'Gork4life' Thanks for reading.
