Got my new computer!

Recommended Posts

Hey there,

 

I was itching to replace my old faithful Intel i7 4770K OC'd t0 4.0GHz (mild), 16GB of DDR3 1600mhz and GTX1070. It has not been passed on to my wife.

I finally managed to find an Asus RTX 3070 Tuf OC in a local shop on the West coast. If you follow the hardware scene, you know that its been super hard to find the Nvidia RTX 3000-series cards since launch. Scalpers have jumped on them, re-selling on E-bay for twice the card's worth. And/or miners cut deals with manufacturers to buy bulk and availability for the gamers have been very problematic.

 

Because shops dont want to say no and want to keep customers happy, they dont want to sell all their cards to crypto miners, they want to sell to peeps that order other parts from them, aka a pre-built. I like to build my own, but this time, its was a little bit different.

This is what i got, had good prices for what it is. I splurged too much on the motherboard, but its both a beauty and a beast. Beautiful beast lol. I probably won't push it to its limits right now, but its got room for overclocking in the future.

10700K, closed-loop 240mm Lian Li water cooler, 32 GB of Kingston Fury 3200mhz CL16, RTX 3070, MSI Z490 ACE motherboard, coolermaster H500 case with a good Corsair RM850x power supply. SSD is a 1TB Samsung 970 EVO PLUS NVME drive.

 

Can't complain! There is always something new around the corner (aka z590 and Intel 11th gen, or ryzen 5000 (unavailable)), so yes I could have waited for something new, but with covid, its hard to find parts at launch without being price-gouged or suffer from early adopter fallouts.

The picture doesn't look too nice, and the protective film on the case window is still on. I will remove it once I move into my new home.

 

Your thoughts?

Those are some nice specs.  I bet your ragdoll will look awesome with that machine. LMAO

But ya, I am sure it's tough finding the latest stuff without paying gouged prices.  Me, I'm too cheap so I'll live with my aging machine but is still plenty for COD haha.

Lol,

 

 Idiots have no boundaries. I'm usually cheap too, but I got a one-time fun money opportunity that I took before wifey started to convince me I don't need a new rig lol. I have spent 7 months of 2020 in the high arctic with no internet gaming capability whatsoever, and that hit me with revenge. It was timely. This new tower doesn't help my scores, but my love for gaming made me appreciate hardware, and I game to use the computer, so full circle. To be honest now, I believe that my newer 1440P 32 inch monitor helped me a little with my scores, must be that my eyes need a check!

Should be a nice RIG and keep you happy for a few years.  I build PC's and starting a PC business right now. But its really hard due to the supply and demand right now, oh and dont get me started on the miners and scalpers either lol.

I am working on  ASUS ROG build right now my self. Already have a Corsair 5000D case a Corsair H150I and a 2080TI. Just waiting on a few more parts to take off on it.

Nice! So the white knight is your rig, but that ROG is for a customer, or a secondary rig? I see you got a 3080, it is what I wanted to get...i didn't jump on the bandwagon in time when they came out, I thought that all this shit (delays, scarcity, scalping) was not possible... I was curious about the Ryzen 5000's but they are in very short supply...I'm more of an Intel guy in all cases.

Yes, can't wait. BF4 is 71 GB total with the expansions...if I download that on the WIFI, I'll get caught...they make us sign a disclaimer....I'm assuming that all I do is checked....but its free wifi and fairly good at 30 Up and 15 down...

Yeah The White Knight is my gaming RIG I have a Alienware R11 I9 10900K with dual 2080Ti's for my editing RIG for videos and such. But the ROG build will be a secondary RIG for the Shop. It will be used for Streaming/Recording for YouTube and just about anything else I want to do up there. It will handle gaming when I get bored to 🙂

This is what the PSU runs:

Power Specifications

Rail 3.3V   5V   12V  5VSB -12V
Max. Power Amps 25 25  70.8    3 0.8
Watts 150  850   15 9.6
Total Max. Power (W) 850

So 71a on the 12v rail.

 

And yes my old computers were running COD fine...I'm just an enthusiast I guess.
