    I'm more impressed by those studio monitors, you should include all your audio stuff in your sig since it's an integral part of the PC

    They are the same studio monitors as I have.

    The Presonus Eris E5s, he came to me asking about buying them, after a while, he got them, he's pretty happy from what I can tell.



    Wow, just realized how out-of-date this picture is... I'll have to get a new picture soon!

    Hehe, can you imagine if you had the Presonus Eris E8s? It'd be like Cyanotical's setup. :P Much... much smaller.

    Haha very true, I'm actually looking at that 34" LG Panel if it drops to about $1k I'd buy it.

    If you don't mind 21:9, be my guest. :P However it's definitely not for everyone.

    also, i can vouch for those, again as deltrus said, its not for everyone, but i like the extra FOV you get in games, so far most of my games work with no issues, even older games.

    Sweet I'll definitely keep an eye on the AOC one you linked in September as it seems it should fall around $850 in the US if I'm doing my conversion correctly. For that price I'd jump on it in a heartbeat. Since you have one already what GPU setup you have powering that monitor?

    oh should add my screen is 2560x1080, meant i can vouch for the aspect ratio, guess i need to proof read more on what i write.

    linustechtips did a review on the LG one, saying its much easier to run then the 4 k screens.

    though i am running a nvidia 780 now, though has no issues running that 2560x1080 and the extra FOV, though 2560x1440 has more pixels, the 21:9 just generates a larger image to render, so you still need something beefyish.

    Well since you asked, I think you overspent on the RAM and motherboard.. Some savings there would have got you a nice 250-500Gb SSD. But other then that it looks pretty solid, especially for WoW considering the CPU. Any overclocking yet?

    I agree with Ghazh, the high speed RAM is always both overkill and overpriced, well, almost always. For WoW, it is. The motherboard is also pretty overkill, unless you know how to use it to its fullest potential.

    The savings could have garnered an SSD like Ghazh said, and/or a higher level GPU.

    Still, good looking system! Would love to see pictures once you have it all setup!

    No overclocking yet. Saving for some decent cooler first.

    What MOBO and RAM u guys think would suit better this build ? I knew the RAM was overkill but about the MOBO as Ghazh said, planning to overclock in fullest potential as soon as some decent cooler arrives.
