    I like it. Revelation is going to look and play great.

    You are pretty much set for a while. A few years down the line if you want to keep on the cutting edge of graphics you can always just look at the current graphics cards to swap out. You also have an m.2 slot for faster SSD storage, if you ever have money burning a hole in your pocket. The cost/benefit is high right now but will get cheaper through the next couple of years.

    Don't underestimate the usefulness of a second monitor, if you have never tried it before. It can be a cheap one, maybe somebody you know has an unused one sitting in a closet or basement. Anyway, if you have the room on your desk it is nice to have mumble open and various web pages while you game.

    For a mouse I use the Razer Naga Hex v2 and like it. I map things like the action key, weapon swap, mount/dismount, and PTT for mumble on it. I have heard some people say they don't like this style though.

    I am going to try out the SteelSeries Rival 500 when it comes out next month. Similar concept, different design. I think I might like the button layout better.

    Probably going to switch out my Graphics Card but in no rush to the 1080 right now the canadian dollar stinks :<.. $1000+ for one. That mouse looks pretty nice :D.. I was going to get two the MX279H monitors but one monitor is already pretty big to me for now .. I have been eyeing this mouse(I have a thing for wireless gaming mouses) my old one was a Cyborg Rat 9 wireless, now im looking at the wireless sensei.

    My old Mouse.. lasted about 3-4 years

    Currently looking at this one..

    That computer will Kill Rev and pretty much any other game out right now.

    Currently running a 970 and it's a beast.
