I'm suprised as well, especially since I use both my laptop and normal monitor at the same time

Efficiency means nothing when looking at high quality power supplies. Look at the Corsair "CS" series of power supplies - gold rated, cool. But no, they use very bad capacitors, and some of the most vital components don't even have heatsinks on them. These are rated tier 3 on the PSU tier list - not recommended for gaming systems or overclocking systems.

Intel i3-4160 3.6GHz not overclocked atm

16GB HyperX fury DDR3 1866MHz

GT 640 Overclocked

Corsair CX600M Bronze

4TB SSHD + 500GB HDD

MSI B85M-E45 Micro ATX motherboard

HP x2007v <- a monitor that wishes it was 1080p but is off ever so slightly :trollface:

keyboard is an old KB-0630 and mouse is an old PS/2 mouse or something.

 

These components together are actually my first ever build so it was done on a budget, i'm hoping to upgrade the graphics card in the future but atm the one I have is capable enough. It's funny though because all these new parts are still in the old factory Hp pavilion case so no one would suspect a thing :teethhappy:

The ram was on sale and i bought all these parts with the ambition that I would interchange them as and when I need, also I was stuck with 3GB of ram on a 32 bit OS for most of my life so I far from wanted to scimp out on it, The GT has been capable of handling the games I like to play at decent frames on medium quality so i'm not really too concerned, setting my eyes on the gtx 980. I considered the 970 but not really sure I want a misinformed 3.5GB card with the other 0.5 being apparently incredibly slow

I was offered a full refund for my GTX970 due to the memory seperation not being disclosed. I considerd it then I did some research. I found that for the money there is no better card out there regardless of the memory splitt. The only limitations this card has is for 4k resolution and if your watching 4k you wouldnt buy a GTX970 in the first place. This GPU handles star citzen at 1080p rather splendid. obviously if you have the extra cash get a GTX980 for sure but its a whole lot of cash for an extra few FPS at 1080p.

 

theres a detailed test done on the memory and its effects in games well worth a look.

Yeah thanks for the summary I always try and do a fair amount of research before I buy pc components because I care about what i'm actually putting into my system and knowing i'll have to live with it, so I know it is very good value for what you get and the memory split isn't too much of an issue, It just annoys me that it costs a fair bit of money and comes with a catch. I'm more than content with what I have and thought that if I was going to spend that kind of money on a good card I may as well be patient, save up and get one which doesn't have any sort of catch

If you're looking at getting a GTX 980, I recommend saving a bit more to get a GTX 980 Ti. The gap between the 980 and the 970 aren't respective of the price difference at all, but the 980 Ti is a massive step up.
