Aloha and greetings from Germany,
I’ve been gaming on an Acer V Nitro 15'' 960m Gaming Laptop since July of 2016 so this is a major upgrade. Before that I played on a HP Gaming Laptop with even worse Specs, this is the first time ever I get to experience a self build PC with decent Parts and it is a mindblowing experience. I’m super satisfied.
I also had to make room in my Apartment for the Battlestation, before this I just played on the Kitchentable which was horrible both for my back and me and my GF could not eat and sit there properly.
If you have any questions about any of the hardware or experiences with this build please ask! Selecting Parts and looking for Deals in Germany took me about 2-3 Months since I never build a PC and had to learn so much (also with your help). I already had the Headset and Mouse, everything else is new.
Building took me about 7-8 Hours with some breaks, I had not a single issue building it because I watched tons of videos and guides on how to build a gaming PC.
I have overclocked my CPU to 3.8GHz @1.35 Voltage, RAM to 3200MHz, my Graphics Card to ~2000MHz GPU Clock and ~4500MHz Memory Clock and Monitor to 165Hz.
I want to upgrade my GPU to the new Nvidia Generation once it is released, an EVGA 2080(1180) would be perfect to fit the black&white theme. A man can dream!
