Gaming and Music Room

This build has come a very long way starting out with an old Intel motherboard when they used to make them back in the day and it was accompanied the Intel 2600K. Pushing the pixels i was running a ASUS HD 6970 - Still one of the beafiest coolers on a card to ever live!
Over time I've slowly upgraded and made things look as clean as possible in all corners of the PC itself and of course upgraded the tech which is housed by the beautiful Phanteks Enthoo Pro M - such a great case and can't recommend Phanteks enough.
Prior to the hardware i have now, I was rocking and FTW Z87 EVGA mobo with the Intel 4790K of course and boy was that fun. I think i've down graded slightly from that going to the Ryzen 2600 but it's new gen so i'm totally stoked. Now, i have the Gigabyte Windforce 1080, I had an AMD R9 380 from MSI which was great at the time i bought it but the more i gamed, the more i wanted more frames. I was using an old ASUS 144Hz monitor too at the time but got rid of it for the LG 34UC79G After buying my GTX 1080. never been more satisfied but having a 1080Ti would've been awesome.
As a whole i'm so stoked where my setup is at right now and the only thing that i would like to change maybe in the future is to have a higher resolution monitor, at least a RTX 2080 and possibly a newer gen Ryzen CPU (which might come first as the chipsets are soon to launch)
As you might've noticed, there are a few guitars in my room as you can see. Myself and my father are luthiers.. If you are clueless as to what that is, that's okay lol.. we are guitar builders. Striving for perfection we make beautiful acoustic guitars and I'm a singer songwriter that just loves gaming a bit too much.

Thanks for reading this quick history of my PC building, I tried to keep it brief but intimate.
