  1. Wow ….that was actually a very good build , it's not stuppid expensive like putting the 1080ti , not a fan of the case but that's a matter of personal taste , yep , that's actually a pretty good PC for reviews , if I'm not wrong more people have the 1060 and equivalent , but the difference is not abysmal , the only thing that misses is the screen , 4k or 1440p and 124hz or more shootery like and 240 hz

  2. I wouldn't put or recommend a 4 core processor in a modern gaming pc… Why you could't just put in a Ryzen 1600x which would give much better results in many of the latest and upcoming games. 4 cores just don't cut it in many cases. Framerates may seem ok wit a 4c processor, but in many games there are these little pauses and hitches that occur on 4 core systems. Those do not affect the framerate numbers but are very annoying.

  3. Cool video. One request, can you included your costs for the build or a PC part picker link. You reference a cheaper build and while yes I could just look it up it would have been nice to see it included. Thanks for the video, I thought about getting that case while I was doing my build.

  4. That's great and all but this isn't very realistic for the average gamer.
    Should make a video of a cost effective pc build

  5. nice video my personal rig is
    CPU: intel core i7 4790k @ 4.5ghz
    GPU: palit super Jetstream GTX 1080TI
    RAM: corsair vengeance DDR3 16gb @ 2600mhz

  6. I love a fast machine as much as anyone but I just wish I could get enthusiastic about this kind of design…

    I'm not gonna be like 'oh I only follow the Mac school of design' or something like that I just think these 'glitzy' pc setups look… Well I just never got it. I think you have to be fanatical about gaming/pc technology to appreciate this kind of look.

  7. So my Asus Sabertooth Z170S with i5 6600k (OCd 4.21 GHz)…NZXT Kraken X52 and 2x8GB Corsair Vengeance 2666MHz DDR4 ram (on 2.4 GHz because of the MOBO)
    Asus Strix GTX 1070 8GB Gaming should be just fine for a couple of years… 🙂

  8. It's nice as a multiplatform gamer that IGN looks to be making an attempt at getting more serious about their PC user audience.
