First and for most I like to thank everyone at PCpart Picker. This is my first build, this site and the people helped me a lot. This all started out when I went into the Microsoft store and saw the LG ultrawide they had on display. I started to do some research on ultrawide. I knew this monitor (Acer X34) was the one. The monitor I got is the XR341CK bmijpphz (freesync) and not the Acer Predator. PCpartpicker only has the Acer Predator to select from on their list. Amazon had it for $888 with free shipping, the wait was over, I had to jump on that deal. I wanted to build a PC that was just powerful enough to drive this monitor. This is mainly my work station. I do most of my gaming on my PS4. Will most likely slowly move over to PC gaming.
What can I say, best bang for the buck. 4 stars because its not an i7
Had no issues with it. Easy overclocking, very friendly bios interface. First time building a PC. I had a lot of questions, called MSI, was never on hold more then a min. Their staff is very knowledgeable.
Was only able to overclock them to 2800 without crashing my PC. I could have gotten a back one.
Nice cable management. Very easy to work with. I love the look, and the lights are a plus. 4 stars because its not as quiet as I thought.
Not a big fan of Windows 10, so I went back to Windows 8.1. Could be better if they just got rid of the stupid tiles BS. Maybe Windows 9?
