[pre][color=#212121][font=Arial  sans-serif][SIZE=3]Well, it's been a few years now that I've upgraded my system. Now it was time again, because I could not play the latest games anymore.[/SIZE][/font][/color]

[color=#212121][font=Arial  sans-serif][SIZE=3]So it was in my case the new game PUBG. With my old GTX 750 it took about 3 minutes until I landed on the ground. It was horrible! So I decided to completely upgrade my system. My choice was pretty simple. It has to be the GTX 1070 for the following reasons:[/SIZE][/font][/color]

[color=#212121][font=Arial  sans-serif][SIZE=3]- looking forward to 4K [/SIZE][/font][/color]
[color=#212121][font=Arial  sans-serif][SIZE=3]- double frame rate[/SIZE][/font][/color]
[color=#212121][font=Arial  sans-serif][SIZE=3]- good heat dissipation and cooling[/SIZE][/font][/color]
[color=#212121][font=Arial  sans-serif][SIZE=3]- Low working noise of the two 100 mm fans[/SIZE][/font][/color]
[color=#212121][font=Arial  sans-serif][SIZE=3]- Power consumption at about 150 watts and thus very efficient[/SIZE][/font][/color]
[color=#212121][font=Arial  sans-serif][SIZE=3]- favorable price [/SIZE][/font][/color]
[color=#212121][font=Arial  sans-serif][SIZE=3]- suitable for overclocking[/SIZE][/font][/color]
[color=#212121][font=Arial  sans-serif][SIZE=3]- 4k on HDMI and DisplayPort[/SIZE][/font][/color]
[color=#212121][font=Arial  sans-serif][SIZE=3]- Memory doubling[/SIZE][/font][/color]
[color=#212121][font=Arial  sans-serif][SIZE=3]- many connection options[/SIZE][/font][/color]

[color=#111111][font=Arial  sans-serif][SIZE=3][color=#212121]What more do you want. High performance and the noise level is perfect. The graphics card usually runs without additional ventilation, because I can not exhaust my system so much (I usually play LOL). Here the card runs really comfortably with constant 144 FPS (capped because of monitor). [/color]I also tested PUGB. Since the graphics card is more to their limit. I play with medium details (I do not like very low ones), so I play on average at 80 FPS.[/SIZE][/font][/color]
[color=#212121][font=Arial  sans-serif][SIZE=3]My further setup is as follows:[/SIZE][/font][/color]

[color=#212121][font=Arial  sans-serif][SIZE=3]Ryzen 5 1600X (not overclocked)[/SIZE][/font][/color]
[color=#212121][font=Arial  sans-serif][SIZE=3]DIMM DDR 4/3200 Corsair Venegance LPX 2 x 8 GB[/SIZE][/font][/color]
[color=#212121][font=Arial  sans-serif][SIZE=3]Samsung SSD 850 EVO[/SIZE][/font][/color]
[color=#212121][font=Arial  sans-serif][SIZE=3]Motherboard MSI X370 Gaming Pro (this will come later in a separate unboxing)I did not wanted a high-end system from the beginning on. Of course, there is still an increase up, but for my use, the price-performance ratio is right. [/SIZE][/font][/color]

[color=#212121][font=Arial  sans-serif][SIZE=3]A small detail should be noted with space inside:[/SIZE][/font][/color]
[color=#212121][font=Arial  sans-serif][SIZE=3]- 12.5cm card height are generally necessary for the card from the top edge of the PCI-E slot.[/SIZE][/font][/color]
[color=#212121][font=Arial  sans-serif][SIZE=3]- But where this PCI-E power jack is, you have to additionally plan 1 to 1.5cm of space in height, so that the PCI-E power plug has room. That should not be a problem in Midi / Maxi-Tower. Well in my case, i do not have more space inside [IMG]https://forum-en.msi.com/Smileys/msi/smiley.gif[/IMG][/SIZE][/font][/color]

[color=#212121][font=Arial  sans-serif][SIZE=3]I give a thumbs up to MSI, keep up the good work![/SIZE][/font][/color]
