Make your own thread for "Will-be's", please.
I've got everything for the build at home, was just wanting another person's perspective on the components I've gotten
So you bought it all already... without asking us?
I assure you, no one is going to tell you that you spent your money well, except on maybe the HDD, case, and monitor.
Processor and motherboard are an ancient architecture, literally 4+ years old, I have no idea why you bought those, unless you got them used, then it would be a different scenario entirely.
Power Supply is well over 200 watts overkill.
Again though, I suggest making your own thread, as people come here to comment on fully-built rigs, not to tell someone their opinions on their purchase. This is a picture thread, not a Q&A, but we'd love to help you out in a separate thread.
Man the battlestations!
Finally came home from Dreamhack, I had hoped that Proshop & Post Greenland was quick enough to deliver my haswell parts, but that was not the case. (Paid $120 for shipping)
My K701's & Snowball microphone has arrived from Thomann.de (Paid £8 for shipping, they came within 4 days), their customer service is seriously the best I've seen.
Yeah, that's a Shimian behind a $80 monitor from Samsung, I miss my 2560x1440 but my laptop won't drive it.
Anyways, update on setup:
Headphones: AKG 701 & California Headphones Silverado's
Microphone: Blue Snowball, haven't tried it yet
Keyboard: CM Storm Quickfire Rapid with Cherry MX Red. Went from QPAD MK85 with Cherry MX Blues, My parents can actually sleep now.
Mouse: Logitech G400s, got a refund of my G400 when it started acting jerky
Clevo P150-EM laptop
GPU: GTX 670M
RAM: 2x4GB 1600MHz Kingston
SSD: 256GB Samsung 830 Series
Externals HDD's: 4TB WD MyBook, 1TB MyPassport & 1TB Lacie, all 5400RPM
i7-6700k 4.2GHz | Gigabyte GTX 980 | 16GB Kingston HyperX | Intel 750 Series SSD 400GB | Corsair H100i | Noctua IndustialPPC
ASUS PB298Q 4K | 2x QNIX QH2710 | CM Storm Rapid w/ Reds | Zowie AM | Schiit Stack w/ Sennheiser HD8/Antlion Modmic
That post, well, getting the email for that post, reading it, then seeing Sweetleader's reply gave me MASSIVE deja vu.
Good stuff though, hope you get Haxwall soon.
Some really amazing setups.. makes me feel ashame of my simple laptop setup lol. But then I didn't have to pay a lot for it.
Neutron GTX 240GB + Crucial M4 128gb + 2TB Seagate 7200 rpm
16GB G Skill 1600mhz
ODAC + O2 Amp + Sennheiser HD 598 + KRK Rokit 5
Went from a i5 2500k because I wanted moar threads for work stuff, same reason for going from 8 to 16 gigs (going for 32 as soon as I can). Obviously great for gaming too. Pretty happy and will start messing with OCing that i7 soon enough.
