Looks like a very nice machine. It's a lot of money but I would be tempted. The main thing its let down on is the HDD. 1tb..... :-(

waiting for price on 1070 version

Yeah, I've been looking to build a 1070 m-itx using a Raven RVZ02 case and thats coming in at around £1k with decent parts. This thing looks awesome but I can't justify an additional £700 primarily for the 1080 and a slight bump on some other components.

Can just build your own mitx pc for half that.

i like it but I'm building my beast right now. so hot from me

Price wise it's in the ballpark of the Asus ROG G20, but then again I'd say that's probably £200-£300 overpriced too.

One more thing I'd note is that the model number on Amazon is for the 1070 model but the description suggests 1080. I assume it's supposed to be the 1080 model number instead...

Gets a decent review but apparently noisy fans, which could be a problem in a living room environment. No point being 'discrete' if it sounds like a jet engine.

I've attempted to try and get a build for less this is the best I came up with. I would like to see if you can get this for half though only way i could see that is if you were to get most of the items on ebay/gumtree here's a similar build I've made. This is purely a price to performance build could easily oc to 4.4ghz probably would need a stronger cooler for 4.5ghz plus though.

I'm in a similar situtation myself I have all my parts except the GPU waiting for what the GTX 1080 Ti will bring whether it will bring down the prices of other GPU's or will it be a better purchase for playing games @ 1440p 60fps.

Discounting the OS, which can always be had (legit) cheaper, it's probably a fair shout. This PC is definitely £1200+ of components even if you shop around.

Depending what you want it for, the main draw for me is the width though. Lots of options are around if you don't mind a 'cube' build but there aren't many good choices for a slim (<12cm wide) case. That's my main issue - I need something that'll fit next to my TV stand.

1440p is a redundant resolution.

And you couldnt run this system on a 400w psu could you, specially if you are planning to OC too, 1 1070 want s min of 500w

It's a bit of a head-scratcher that one. 1070's have comparatively low power draw, yet want 500w PSU's and 550w for OC'ing. Most build's I've seen seem to run just fine with 500w though, and no idea whether a 450w would still work.

Ah right, because 4K 100hz is dead easy to do with todays GPU's isn't it.

Well 1440p is an expensive stopgap, especially when new 4k hdr (the new standard) monitors are being released.

You're better off waiting till nvidia release their next cards, the 1080 is sufficient for 4k at a reasonable frame rate atm anyway.

I understand why someone would say 1440p is redundant from a technical point of view - it's very much an evolutionary missing link. Still, from a purely "what looks better" point of view, I'd certainly get better from a 1070 running 1440p on a 4k TV than I would running 1080p or trying to get it running 4k smoothly.

Still, this runs a 1080 (supposedly) which should make 4k viable even if it's not always super smooth.

Redundant? you do realise most people are still at 1080p?
Even with SLI 1080's you don't get reliable 4k 60fps.

Sadly that's not the case - I've just got rid of a GTX 1080 SLI setup because it wasn't cutting the mustard for 4K 60hz (in part due to SLI support), and single 1080 and you're looking at 20-50fps with lowering settings. Sync tech can make up for it, but not at the bottom frame rates.

What diff is HDR going to bring to 4K? We're lacking the GPU grunt to make use of 4K - I'm all excited at the oc 4K panels they showed off recently, but until we get single 4K GPU's it's 1440p all the way. Maybe ultra-wide at a pinch.

I believe it's a generation away, consistent gaming at 4k.

It doesn't make sense to invest heavily in 1440p right now when the next standard is right around the corner.

I'd still be plugging away with my (then state of the art) Voodoo2 by your reckoning...

Of course the next big thing is right around the corner, but if we all waited then we would never buy anything!

But 4k gaming is very close!

I understand waiting for the next best thing is counter-productive but I don't see the point in 1440p.

It's pointless even on phone screens. Only place I'd like to see it is budget laptops!

I agree that 4k gaming is pretty close.

In fact it is here now. My GTX 1080 runs the likes of Rocket League perfectly in 4k at 60fps (and with everything turned up to full) on my 65" Samsung (my self build rig is not too different to the one in this thread).

Admittedly RL is a Direct X 9 game, but with a bit of twiddling in the settings most games run very well in 4k (remember things like anti aliasing aren't really required for 4k res so turning the likes of this off frees up many frames per second).

Other than that, 1440p is a good trade off - my TV doesn't display this res, but the game can be rendered in this res at extremely high settings with the Nvidia card and then upscaled to 4k and it looks damn fine compared to a standard 1080p display.

That is simply not true.

A lot of these parts are cheaper because they are nowhere near as good as the spec in the deal.
You're sacrificing a LOT of power consumption and a clock speed on your CPU, as well as having a micro mobo and a really cheap (and probably inefficient) cooler.

I feel that if you built this PC the computer would constantly be at full load and would be subject to overheating - if you could even run the 1080 on a 400w PSU anyway.
