 Doesn't have to be 4k IMHO. Dont get me wrong 4k is nice but I rather have a 1080p or 2k monitor and be able to run full maxed graphics with out having to spend the extra cost on a gpu + to back a 4k monitor up. I run my U3014 with a gtx 1080 and i can run all games fully maxed and its still looks nice and "crispy" lol. Just my 2 cents and i am certainly not knocking those who have a 4k monitor ether btw. I use lumasharpening via Reshade and it makes games so clean and sharp as well with out taking more resources. Like EA_Tom says you have a great setup indeed and got a really great performing / balanced system going on there.

Jeez man as a tech addict myself i was drooling reading your setup and tech talk lol. Great build there my friend. I dig it. Its really cool to see some ahem' slightly older" gamers like myself out there , or on here. I totally get  where you are coming from. I was late 30s before i was able to start building my dream setup. It takes time and hard work to get to a point in your life where your career finally takes off and you can spend money in order to build your dream setup. IMHO its more the a game setup for many . For me its pride in the building of , learning about and the tech behind the gaming rig and room sort of speak. It is a great hobby indeed.

Thanks for the shout out on my room. As well , being young affords you the time to gather ideas from gamers like my self ,BadJasper  and others to create your own vision with the latest affordable tech. I always enjoy it when i see others finally being able to realize their own dreams. Soon my friend before you know it you will build a rig like no others has ever witness . It took me a good while before i even decided on what i wanted to go with . With tech changing so fast its a task that needs careful thought and time IMO

Doesn't really matter how extravagant or how minimal a setup is. If it works, you're happy and, it does what you want, that's all that counts. Gaming is all about fun! Let me put it this way. The first time I played a video game, believe it or not, was in 1975. I was living in Texas and the local watering hole (Back then, you could have your whole family in a bar) had Pool, pinball, darts, etc. But, one day, we went in and seen this little table with a TV screen in it and 2 little knobs on it. Turns out, it was a video game. PONG. 1st game I ever played. Dropped a lot of quarters in it. The point is, it was a simple black and white screen with a dot and two lines on it. It was controlled with that little wheel. It was VERY simplistic but, I was hooked. Compared to what we have now, it was just a box but, it was all it took to give me hours of enjoyment and, it followed me as I got older. Enjoy everything you have. Enjoy Everything you play. That's what it's all about!

 

THIS is what started me on my path....

Nice, any particular reason you haven't upgraded to Win10 (you can still for free, in case you did not know)?

I still use Win7 on my home machine and see no reason to upgrade Standard smile
