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.

sorry for the rant.

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 😉

No need to upload a picture, it's just a silent black box.
https://www.userbenchmark.com/UserRun/17747103

Full specifications:
Case: Fractal Design R5
Case Fans: 3x Fracal Design 140mm, intake front, intake bottom blowing on GPU, outtake back
Motherboard: Asus x370 Prime Pro
CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 1600X @ 3.9Ghz, undervolted
Cooler: Scythe Mungen 5 PGGH edition
Memory: 16GB Corsair LPX DDR3000 (Hynix AFR) @ 3200, 1.4V, manually tightened sub-timings
GFX: Nvidia 1060 6GB, MSI cooler, GPU @ 2Ghz, Mem @ 2302Mhz QDR (9.2Ghz effectively)
SSDs: Samsung 860 Evo 1TB (Windows 10), Samsung 850 Evo 500GB (Linux, Manjaro)
PSU: Corsair RM 550X

Peripherals:
Primary Monitor: BenQ BL2420U 4K@60Hz
Secondary Monitor: Samsung 40 Inch Full HD
Mouse: Logitech G403 (with disabled RGB led)
Keyboard: Full size Ducky One, Cherry MX brown switches, double shot PBT keycaps, black with no back light
Sound card: External USB ADC/DAC 24Bit/192Khz + headphone amp
Speakers: Active crossover -> subwoofer for sub 80Hz -> 2x JBL LSR 305
Headpones: Sony MDR-7506
Microphone: Samson USB condenser mic

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.

I use mine for web browsing 😀 😀

On a serious note:

Warframe, Cities Skylines and any other game I'm in the mood for.

Occasional video creation, so good to have system which just chews through whatever I throw at it. 

Folding at home. Been a member since 2003. Folding on CPUs for a moment because of ridiculously loud Vega 7 😀

Just retrofitting push pull dual fans onto Vega 64 to fold. Stock fan while praised by everyone is very noisy, and recently GPU started coil whine.

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.

Vega 64 nets 700-800k PPD

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