monitor: Samsung C32HG70 144hz 32inch HDR 600 VA panel @1440P. (got it for 400 Euro) secondary monitor is an old BenQ 24 inch 1080p 120hz monitor.
i dont think any part is worth above 500 Euro and any part with a price above 500 euro is a rip off.
Its doing fine, but i actually find playing without the freesync enabled to be preferable to freesync on. I love the colors of my monitor, ive tried far cry HDR and i liked it, also got the eye saver mode on from time to time and its a blessing for long days and nights gaming, makes my eyes relax more by removing the blue light that makes your eyes unable to relax.
I find the monitor a big upgrade in every aspect from my old Benq 27inch 144hx TN panel. the biggest upgrade is the color and black to white ratio. the panel also feels more smooth when it comes to the refresh rate for some reason.
i Used to have an old CRT 19 inch samsung monitor back in the day before going to a 24 inch flatscreen in 2009. i Remember getting headaches in the start from that monitor but i got used to it, the bluelight from those old TN and LCD monitors are something i hate. had i had a 21-23inch CRT monitor back then id probably still be using it. but doing any kind of photoshopping or 3d modelling on an old CRT just wont cut it any more. having the ability to use half the screen for each at the same time is just way better even if the colors of a TN panel is off.
I’m curious, why the humongous PSUs in both systems, they are not even using 50% of what the PSUs are rated at.
Seasonic 1200W was bought during xfire 7970 or 290x days.
Then I decided to go trifire fury x. So Superflower was acquired. Now when these days are in the past, I don't see the need to get rid of either PSUs, since they are working perfectly and they are silent, as fans don't spin at all 😉

The sound card is only needed for recordings now but it was a godsend back when internal sound cards were a noisy mess. The primary monitor has adaptive sync, is factory calibrated, has a light sensor for brightness adjustments and the panel can be used at 1440p/1080P@75Hz if needed. The secondary monitor has a light sensor as well. It needed some repair and was lazily calibrated by eye.
Edit: Removed some weird spacing issues and made the post more human readable.
Forgot to mention my internal LG blue-ray burner, tells you how little I do with BR's these days.
I also got a USB powered 3.5 inch floppy disk drive and some external USB 3 drivers for storage and backup hooked up. They are just simple HDD's in an enclosure making the occasional snapshot of my files.
I see a lot of highly powered systems and some of them look spectacular. What do you guys use them for?
Mine is used for audio/video, some VM's for testing purposes and the occasional game. I also get people over from time to time to check their music, play a few games or just watch a movie.
With kind regards, Ype
PS: I added a picture of my desk. The laptop on it is just a cheap passively cooled 13 inch notebook. I can easily hook it up to my keyboard/mouse, speakers and either screen. The mouse pad is showing quite a bit of wear and tear though so I got a replacement coming in today.
Wait, you use your PC for web browsing too?! What are the odds!
I'm glad to see another protein folder. My 1060 was rather bandwidth starved so I overclocked the memory a bit. I expect that your Vega card with the HBM2 will tear through those workloads.
Nah, AMD doesn't want to know anything about F@H in regards to optimisations. Nvidia rules there big time. Since Polaris AMD situation improved a bit in regards to folding, but still not enough to challenge nvidia.

Haven't tried vega 7 though, that might crack a million. Will be interesting to see Navi with its new arch.
