So why did I do it? I guess you can blame it on the smart marketing at Xbox. Man, these Xbox advertises are all over the place! Kidding, although it’s partly true-ha! For all the PC fanboys who are disappointed, I don’t care. YOLO- you gotta try everything.
I think what finally drove me over is actually a combination of reasons, and in the past, I’ve always said that if Xbox One made certain changes I would buy one. And indeed the Xbox of today is quite different from when it first launched. This is a great time to get an Xbox One if you haven’t- don’t wait for Black Friday. Personally, I bought it because of serval factors, 1) saving, I managed to pull some couponing skills and received a generous 15% discount. 2) Price, compared to launch day version, current Xbox Ones are cheaper, mainly due to the decision to exclude the Kinect unit. Lastly, 3), larger storage capacity option- doubled from 500GB to 1TB. But aside from those reasons, most important are the changes coming at end of year- the long anticipated wait of Halo 5 and Direct X12. If rumors are true Xbox One will receive a significant performance boost and finally delivered on “next gen gaming” concept…maybe. Basically, there’s just too many exciting things happening for the Xbox, I just didn’t want to be left out- there I said it!
First time building an x99/ LGA 2011 platform. Few things that caught my attention, the CPU is incredibly huge and DDR4 makes a huge difference. I’m tempted to upgrade mine.
The owner of this rig is a freelance photographer and videographer- this rig should serve him very well. Some parts were picked beyond my comfort level, but it’s mainly to fit the all red theme.
Decided to ditch my custom water cooling H440 rig and settle for this little guy. I really wanted to display the GPU, and locating the rig next to my favorite toy and PS4. What do you guys think?
