Critique How I Built a New Gaming Rig For Around $1,000

Awesome. Those settings are insane, too. It would probably kill my card!
I used to have a GTX 970 super clocked (I think I bought it in 2013) and I got about 60-70fps at ultra/extreme settings at 1080p. I was surprised to get so much performance running 1440p. Guess the 2060 super is awesome. I really wanted a 2070 or 2080 super but it was simply out of reach.

The only thing I’m really disappointed about is that I can’t play Half Life Alyx. I have a powerful enough computer to do it but it’s VR only and the equipment is way too expensive.

I haven’t dialed in the RAM timings and frequency yet. May work on that soon.

Got some unicorn barf fans for the exhaust yesterday. Thermaltake. The front 3 intake fans are cooler master and they perform well but they’re really loud, may look at replacing them with the same model fans I just put in.
