Took the plunge.

Recommended Posts

My 2016 build will be my first complete new build. I have done many builds in the past for clients, but never for my self. Like most of us, I re-used my old parts to keep cost down. Not this time! This time I'm going big. And, in the words of Hammond, "Spared no expense." Without further adieu, I list my specs:

 

Monitor: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824236399

ASUS PB287Q Black 28" 4K UHD 1ms 10-bit HDMI Widescreen LED Backlight LCD Monitor height&Pivot adjustable 300 cd/m2 100,000,000:1

 

Video Card (2x): http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814487142

EVGA GeForce GTX 980 Ti 06G-P4-4995-KR 6GB SC+ GAMING w/ACX 2.0+, Whisper Silent Cooling w/ Free Installed Backplate Graphics Card

 

Motherboard: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128835

GIGABYTE G1 Gaming GA-Z170X-Gaming 7 (rev. 1.0) LGA 1151 Intel Z170 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Sweet build. Out of curiosity, why an Evo 850 and a Pro 850 instead of 2x Pro 850?

Just out of cost.
My question is why not just the 950,maybe a bigger one? What's the 850 for?

Brilliant machine other than that confusing part :P

Nice build and great choice of components. But why not go with a nicer, more up to date chassis? I still have my HAF932 and love that tank of a case lol,but there are better options out there. Unless you are going for that specific look.

Finished the build except for some cable management. 

 

Only two issues:

1. Having trouble entering the BOIS, the keyboard is not responding till after POST, probably try a different port or an older PS/2 KB.

2. OS (10 pro 64) not seeing 250gb SSD or 4TB HDD, suspect either incompatibility with SATA ports/lanes since I have M.2 working and 2x GPUs.
