And shall ever be thus

At least we can still utilize the hardware for the most part.

I can see how it could appear that way, but if you knew me better mate you'd know I don't play that game

I'm pragmatic. I realize my rig is an uber rig compared to many, but it's still mid-high compared to others. I don't deny I'm proud of it however. I've already said I love my setup and have been complemented on it - I don't need 'sneak' compliments. No pretense here

To slip into the high category I'd expect a watercooled X79 system with 3-4 GTX titans in SLI, x3 30" screens, all max capacity SSD's etc

Compared to a system like that, mine doesn't hold up.


I'm simply asking what others consider to be a high end rig since opinions vary.

I know... jealousy does not become me
Lol. I don't have debt or kids and do flap all else - that's the only way I've managed to build my machine. I will let this rig run through a few more generations I think.

Quote:
Now, let me understand something... do you play on all those 3 screens at the same time or I am reading all these wrong?
Yep. It's called surround for nvidia and Eyefinity for AMD. Some games I stick to single screen for performance reasons, but most others I game at 5760x1200 so it's pretty resource demanding. That's why I decided on a third card. Cheaper than two new 780's etc.

Yep

Quote:
See your rig to me would not be high end, it would be to the point where it is complete overkill, because I would never need that much power. Now your rig may not be overkill to you but simply high end, again depending on what you do and how you use it.
Tbh, I could actually do with more power solely because of surround. For single screen, it is massive overkill.

P.S. Nice rig man!
Thanks Mate

I don't do as much gaming as I used to, and believe it or not, I've played CoD: MW3, Diablo III, Dishonored, War Thunder and now Neverwinter all @ 1080p with medium-high settings on OC'd HD 4000 graphics. Until I find a game I HAVE to play that I can't, I'm going to hold off and put the money where it's needed.

And if you go with a Haswell upgrade, the IGPU will do even more

I believe it I've tested out the iGPU on my chip and was quite surprised with it's performance on certain titles.

The point is to offer your opinion on what you see your baby as

To me it's a mid-high, great AMD build.




And after some further thought, I've decided that for this site and quite a few others - mines a high end rig. I guess adding a third card, despite other specs, does put it into a different category. I figured that since I bought a large PSU and a 4 slot mobo with the intent of one day adding 3 cards, I'd be sillier not too.

That is one of the reasons I like AMD they may not beat Intel down like most people want but learning how to tune there chips for optimal performance is very fun and educational

I spent maybe the last 3 years reading about how to fine tune AMD architecture most people think just throwing the multi up and some voltage at it is all they need it goes much more deeper then one can imagine

But on the flip side of things I have seen a lot of people swaying AMD's way im not sure if it really is budget or they really caught on to something with this 8core cpu because this thing has some balls and I can say even on a bad server this thing keeps me smooth in game
