    Very nice setup.
    Got 1 or 2 or 3 questions though.

    Why did you pick a Radeon ? (Really just curious. I always buy nvidia, so I'm curious how the stability is with their drivers these days..)

    Also question about the memory :
    Is that memory what Asus recommends as being compatible with their mainboard ? Or did you pick it just because it's uhh fast ?

    How much "maintenance" is that watercooler thing ?

    The closed loop watercoolers (which that one is) have come a long way in the last couple years. I would not do an open system again - too expensive and too much maintenance.

    Alright something for december rig update prob...

    AMD is best bang for your buck performance wise, has been like that for the last few generations. Drivers have also come a long way.

    Hmm, ok. Still a few months away. Guess I'll just keep my eyes open, right now my GTX 690 performs good enough, no reason to upgrade to a R9 295X2.
    But that watercooling looks promissing. Less noise is good, right ?

    Damn, Evoex..AMD really? I would have thought the Bulldozer debacle was enough to know Intel chips are the best period.

    2600k@4.8ghz on a single cpu loop on 4 years now. Best bang for the buck for me!
     
  7. I hvae the 2600k right now and it is really shitting the bed for me, which is why I'm getting a new rig. It lets me play but not the way I want. I want to stream and do all kinds of other shit too, but nope, wont let me.
