Dark Rage v.2 is complete

My PC upgarde is complete. Featuring an all new LED RGB RAM sticks and an EVGA 1080ti. This is Dark Rage v.2. My previous graphics card, the EVGA 1070 will be sold to a friend of mine, who is building his own gaming pc this weekend. I have offered to assist in building his rig after we get the parts at Sim Lim.

Isn’t she a beauty?

I have decided not to do further upgrades, like the CPU and motherboard. Despite the recent official announcements by Intel on their upcoming launch of Coffeelake CPUs, I feel that the upgrade (at this moment in time) of motherboard and CPU would be a waste of money. This is because I predict that the performance increase in real world usage (primarily in gaming) would be so minimal, that it would not justify getting a brand new processor, AND a whole new motherboard. It is quite unfortunate that despite the fact that Intel is launching Coffeelake using the same LGA socket, prevous z170 and z270 motherboards are not supported. Thus, I would need to buy a whole new motherboard just to use these CPU. If it was possible, I might have considered just upgrading my CPU, while using my current motherboard.

I guess I just have to wait what AMD has to offer down the line, now that Intel has shown its hand.
