Holy crap what a massive difference with this monitor. So clear and crisp, I have so been behind the times. Helped that the graphics card turned up yesterday so ran some 3dmark test and whoa not used to this sort of power hahahah.

So i decided I wanted to upgrade the system already and have added the following.

 

Another 16gb of the same ram so now have 32gb total

 

Changed out the cpu to a 6700k

 

This is the bit I am interested in and wondered how many other people had these and what you thought of it. I put in one of these.

I cant believe how much of a difference this has made over my SSD which I thought was bloody fast in the first place.

Pretty grunty machine now. Should keep you going for a while. Yeh those drives are pretty good. Another thing that people are getting into is M.2 drives. They are much the same price and in some cases cheaper . Glad you are happy. Did you overclock the CPU yet? You don't buy a K chip and leave it stock clocked :)

Just the standard overclock to 4.6 , Pretty stoked with the system now should be a few years before I need to do anything. Pehaps a bigger monitor , should have gone for the 27" and not the 24".
