    SUMMING UP MY THOUGHTS

    Well this was certainly a wild ride for me. I apologize for this taking so long to complete, but life just kept getting in the way of things. I certainly learned a LOT in...

    Here are the stock results for 3DMark on this system. Not too shabby at all really, all things considered. But what happened when we overclocked?

    Those are some pretty healthy gains...

    THE CONCLUSION

    Alright folks, here's the long overdue conclusion to my build log! I went ahead and ran some basic benchmarks on the system to see what exactly I could squeeze out of it before it...

    Re: GTX 970 or....

    The R9 290X holds its own against nVidia's newest offerings, but mostly at higher resolutions. 1440P and 4K are really the only place that an R9 290X belongs now. Even then there are a great many...

  8. Re: GTX 980 Reference Card worth the money?

    Of those cards, IF you can swing the cash for it I would go for the FTW edition card. It performs admirably right now, and in the near future EK is going to be producing a full cover waterblock for...
  9. Re: GTX 980 Reference Card worth the money?

    Short answer: a reference card is one that is identical to the "reference" circuit board design that nVidia or AMD produce to show to the AIB (add-in board) partners when they go to make their own...

    Re: i7 5960x for only $899.99!!!

    Same. I had plans that were going to revolve around X99, but it's far too prohibitively expensive for me so I get to stick with my 8350 for the time being -_-. Gaming is fine and all, and I love...

    Re: R9-295x2 $650 ERMAHGERD!!!

    I wouldn't unless I were using the CUDA cores for Adobe software acceleration on top of gaming. Sure there's less power draw with the 970's, but individually the 970 is more or less only slightly...

    Yeah the ONLY reason to get into this platform is if you plan on using those CPU cores (along with some GPU acceleration) to render video or music content. If I were to make a recommendation for...

    Re: ASUS or Sapphire?

    ^this.

    Binning consistency between the two manufacturers is pretty good (the 290X Matrix Platinum being an exception), so basically whichever one you can afford/looks better to you.
