    My rig
    Ryzen 1700X slapped onto an Asus X370 Prime MB,
    16 GB Corsair 3200 Vengeance LED ram.
    Corsair H110i Cooler
    Asus Strix GTX 1080 X2 running SLI to get decent 4K game play
    Crucial 256 M.2 ssd, sandisk 240 ssd, seagate 2 TB hdd
    Phanteks Ethoo evolv case lit up in purple the birthstone color of my two month old baby girl
    Asus 28 in 4k monitor, Asus 27 in Full HD monitor, and a Vizio 40 in full HD TV for movie watching while I surf.
    I play FPS or any kind of game I can play when the little one is sleep (rarely)
    This past weekend I built a rig with my 9 yo nephew with parts from my previous build as a reward for him advancing to the state bowling finals happening this weekend.
    This would be a great upgrade from the Zotac GTX 960 currently in his system, so he can play his favorite game Minecraft.

    Still working on my backlog (DA: Inquisition is my current game). Looking forward to Prey and the indie game Midair (spiritual successor to Starsiege: Tribes).

    Pic of my current rig (soon to be upgraded to Ryzen once all the parts arrive).

    This is my current rig. I don't need need a new card for myself but my wife is struggling along with an old GTX 680. She would love a new ASUS 1070 Series card as she is always looking forward to playing new games. She loved the Bioshock series so I'm thinking she will want to play Prey when it comes out. A 1070 should 1080p Ultra in that game just fine :)

    Would love to update my 760 in my htpc for battlefront 2. Probably other games coming out, but that's the biggest one on my radar.

    I'd like to play some Project Cars 2 (in VR, of course):

    http://www.wmdportal.com/projects/project-cars-2/

    Be interesting to see how it compares to Assetto Corsa and iRacing.

    Pic of my build attached, it's an htpc SFF build, drives my 1080p 135" projector screen and Oculus (which could use a little bit more power than my 1060).

    Well, here's my main rig. It's sporting a 290X, but i changed it last week to a R9 Nano to wait for something more powerful to properly drive my 4K display (Nano will be going into my HTPC, which is rocking a HD 5770). The Ryzen build on my sig is still a WIP, so i'm still rocking my E5-2670.

    I want to work through my 100+ game backlog (Gabe stahp), but i have the dream i'll someday finish Skyrim with 4K mods and everything cranked up.

    Asus - Help me get my GPU brand to match my mobo and display brand! My some-other-brand 770 is an old stinker. :dead:

    Looking forward to trying out The Witcher 3, and SpellForce 3 later this year.

    Asus 1070 would go nicely with my new Asus 2k 144hz monitor! I'm actually looking forward to CoD WW2 since the Las CoD game I enjoyed was the last CoD WW2 game..;)

    I was honestly looking at the Asus Dual 1070 OC to put in my Cube that I built last month and have been rebuilding since. Right now I'm playing Mass Effect Andromeda, Civilization VI and (still) flying heavily modded Microsoft FSX, but am looking to (finally) get Doom, and if they ever get out of Alpha, Star Citizen.

    My EVGA GTX 970 whines and buzzes like it wishes it was a fire alarm. Help me [H]ardOCP. Help me Asus.

    "Old school" i7-3770 and GTX 980. I still play a lot of Doom 2016 and Diablo 3 but I'm looking to start playing some new stuff.

    Yes not technically a desktop in the conventional way:) BUT the Alienware laptop does run with a desktop 1080 GTX video card via modified Alienware graphic adapter. Technically i also have my cube server in the picture so there....

    upload_2017-4-27_9-49-48.png

    Games I current have installed, but been mostly playing Victor Vran, Starbound and grim dawn at the moment. If I win a card it will go into my htpc to replace an aging 750 ti card. so I can do more sofa playing, and who wouldnt be excited about that?

    PS: what I have on my main screen :)

    This is my main system, I am looking at building a new rig with Virtual Machines and using GPU passthrough, so any of these cards would be exceptional for the new build.

    Well this is embarrassing because my rig is in such bad shape. Been planning lots of upgrades first is replacing those old 570's and now since my SSD died this week that is high on the list. I'm tired of telling myself "That looks like a fun game but it would run annoyingly slow on my machine".

    i5 build with a poor old beaten and abused HD7970 stuck in a tiny ass CM-130 elite. Sure could use a nice upgrade especially since it struggles some kinda fierce trying to play VR games on my Vive...

    The games I'm looking forward to playing this year:
    Quake Champions
    Prey
    Scorn (If it is released)
    Ghost of a Tale

    Also, this will most likely go to my wife's machine, as I'm building her a white themed system. One of These will go perfectly in it!

    changes from the sig are another Gigabyte z77 board and only running a 480 GB Corsair Neutron XT right now in it.

    Would love to get back to playing MechWarrior Online again.... mayhaps the new DOOM as well.

    Help me Asus, you're my only hope. (Edit: Just realized I got ninja'd on this by Ricochet!) This old girl needs attention, she's overshadowed by her younger, thinner Asus Strix laptop sibling.

    What I'd use it for? If I was fortunate enough to snag a 1070, I'd love to build a a nice VR rig and get into that properly. I get pretty jealous of the guys here at [H] and their VR reviews while I'm stuck here on the sidelines in stupid normal reality. As a married man, you understand my need to escape from....reality....from time to time, and I'm betting crushing some bots (and a few beers, maybe) in Robot Recall would help fix what ails me. And I'm betting it'd power my ultrawide monitor quite well in a weekend marathon of Mass Effect Andromeda (and really show all the details on the weird faces). And should the 1050 be in my future, I can't think of a better start for a Steam machine for my living room 1080p TV.

    Either way, you'll be doing this guy here a solid.

    -Humbly submitted,
    Pusher of Buttons

    It's about time for me to upgrade. It's been 11 years and 3 kids since I have had anything above a midrange card. Just like [H] says you upgrade graphics card and monitors before cpus. If I won a new high end graphics card such as this I could spend the money I would be saving on the graphics card to finally get away from 1080p gaming and move onto 4K gaming. I can't wait to play gta v and the upcoming COD WW2 at 4K. Specs of current pc in pic
    I7-2600@4.1
    8gb ddr3-1600

    My current system. It's nothing too fancy but it sports a lightly overclocked i5-6500K & a EVGA GTX 970 FTW. Considering that I am using a 1080P monitor still, the GPU holds up well for the games that I am currently playing. Mainly Final Fantasy XIV & Mass Effect Andromeda. Games I am looking forward to at the moment are Bless Online, Destiny 2 & COD WWII. Best of luck to everyone that is entering the giveaway :).
