    I'm running a i5 9600K, a GTX 1070 and a 500GB Samsung 970 EVO nVME PCI-e M.2 2280. Running WIndows 10 Pro 64 bit, it fires up cold boot to usable in 17 seconds!!! The motherboard I have will allow me to go up to the latest i9 processor for future upgradeablilty as well. That all being said, Nice build X-Ray!! Will keep him into gaming for a long time to come!!!

    What video card do you have. Technology has gotten to the point that you almost need to match the monitor's abilities to what the video card is, and is capable of!! ASUS 144hz monitors are the best, in my opinion. I've heard really good things about the HP Omen line as well. That being said, I LOVE my Samsung monitor...have had it for a very long time with no screen blur or burn in. BenQ are budget monitors. If you really have that $1000 max spending limit, go with an ASUS ROG 144hz or a HP Omen 144 hz monitor. EDITED: I posted this before seeing SixGun's post. Even that article lists the BenQ as the budget monitor lol Also has multiple ASUS monitors on that list Personally, I would shy away from anything like a monitor as "budget". When I was talking about the video card capabilities and the monitor capabilities, do some research into G-Sync vs Free Sync (https://www.digitaltrends.com/computing/freesync-vs-g-sync/)

    Video evidence.....doesn't lie. Granted, there did seem to be a bit of caressing on both parts. That sounded wrong....
  7. PFFFFT!!!! I built my old rig back in November 2007!!! It was a Core2Quad Q6600! It was upgraded to 8GB RAM and a GTX 560 Superclocked (from dual 8800 GT OC). Runs CoD 4 and CoD 5 fine. Even runs games up to Fallout 4 and Wolfenstein New Order and Old Blood. But beyond that, it was not good for gaming anymore.
  8. If anyone wants a 2TB m.2 drive, this came through email just now... Intel 660p Series 2TB m.2 2280 for $199.99 with coupon code "EMCTWUE22" - https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820167461&utm_medium=Email&utm_source=IGNEFL031919B&cm_mmc=EMC-IGNEFL031919B-_-EMC-031919-Index-_-InternalSSDs-_-Blitz-20167461-S0&ignorebbr=1 The 1TB is only $114.99. Not bad for either...... What's wrong with your "CDKey in use"? For what game?
  9. If hell bent on getting SSD for storage, don't get a m.2. Get a regular SATA. 1TB is $155 US, 2TB is $345 US and the 4TB is a whopping $735..... https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?item=N82E16820147673
  10. You shouldn't need the SSD for storage. Only really useful for boot times. Look into a Western Digital Black drive for storage. You can get the 2TB for around $120 US and the 4TB for less than $200. 2TB is $109 US - https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?item=N82E16822236624 4TB, 7200RPM 256Mb cache is $180 US - https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?item=234-000G-000W6 I have been running WD Black drives for YEARS. VERY fast drives, and VERY durable.
  11. Need to do that to my previous computer, and clean up the wiring to make me feel better about it!! Need to wait until it warms up a bit though, because I really don't want the multiple inches of accumulated dust blown around my house! LOL
  12. Literally just finished building almost the exact same rig!! Same power supply, same processor, same motherboard chipset, same m.2 SSD (I went with the 500gb though), same memory size.... Differences are: Asus TUF Pro Gaming z390 motherboard g.Skill Trident Z RGB 16gb Gigabyte GTX 1070 video card Samsung 970 Evo 500GB m.2 Western Digital Black 2TB drive Windows 10 Pro 64bit. DIYPC Vanguard-V6-RGB Steel/Tempered Glass Mid Tower w/ 3x RGB 120mm fans Up and running and doing AWESOME!!! Haven't gamed on CoD4 yet. Been trying out all the newer games that are out there that I couldn't before lol
