The Man and his Build
The Guru3D Rig of the Month February 2014 was made by Amlett, he designed a PC that is not extremely modded, but very stylish, simple and subtle. Yeahs these keywords would suit his rig called the Omen the best. Looking at is is understanding as his rig oozes passion of the build. So have a peek at Guru3Ds Rig of The Month February 2014.
1. What is your name / nickname /age / occupation?
Amlett, 32 year old. I'm system engineer in a spanish ISP providing IaaS, RaaS and Saas using virtual enviroments.
2. What did you first come here for?
Guru3d is one of my three references for hardware reviews and, of course, I love your rig of the month section. I've been wanting to build a rig for this section since I first saw it. My main hobby is building rigs, so having one rig of the month is a great achievement for me.
3. What do you mainly use the system for?
Gaming, benching and some virtualization labs for work. I have other computers at home for different uses. Of course this is my most powerful rig so this is the one used for heavy tasks.
For gaming I use a Samsung 2233RZ for BF4 at 120hz (incredibly fast panel), and a Dell 2709W for everything else (S-PVA panel with great blacks, colors and acceptable gaming response time for non-online FPS games)
