    ASUS Z170M-E D3

    Intel I5-6400

    ASUS GTX 1060 TURBO-GTX1060-6G

    Crucial 2x 8GB DDR3L-1600

    Samsung SM951 128GB

    iStarUSA D-340HB-T


This lil puppy is performing well! Admittedly, I could have sprung for a i5-6500, but when you can get this mobo/cpu combo $260, it was hard to pass up, and allowed my budget to go from a GTX 960 to a GTX 1060.

I haven't tried any gaming as yet, but this this chomps through any video that I have thrown at it without breaking a sweat, even at 4K.

I did have a bit of a heart attack when the ASUS GTX 1060 Turbo arrived. Before installing the card, I installed nVidia's 368.81 driver into the Win 8.1 OS and after booting with the 1060, it was like there was no driver installed.

I tried reinstalling 368.81 but ran into the 'no compatible hardware' issue. Same results for 368.95, 369.00 and 369.05! So WTF!?! Let's check ASUS site.... NVDriver_Vista_Win7_Win8_64_VER368_81WHQL.exe installs fine.

I believe that this is the first time that I needed to install a manufacturer's drivers over any from the nVidia site.

Wonder what version that is. Anyway nice setup dude. I'd be curious to know how the 1060 holds up in 4k in DOOM or GTAV.
