Those cables... You might check to see if Tarzan and Jane live in there.

 
 
LulzAreGud [1 Build] 33 points 12 months ago

Probably not. Tarzan's gotta breathe too.

Is this new? Would have gotten 6300

 
 
kenh536 [2 Builds] 0 points 12 months ago

That or an 8320. At current prices theres no reason to go between them.

 
 
Funkbass [1 Build] 1 point 12 months ago

8320 is a bit more, not sure if it's worth it at this price point.

Strange choice of CPU.

 
 
dschutt84 [3 Builds] 3 points 12 months ago

A hamster could run games/video editing apps faster then the 8120 :)

Sell that CPU and get any of the Vishera CPU's or wait till steamroller.

 
 
splat761 [Submitter] [1 Build] 0 points 12 months ago

definitely gonna upgrade my cpu and mb soon

 
 
dschutt84 [3 Builds] 1 point 12 months ago

But you just said you bought all this stuff about a month ago? Just get a new CPU don't worry about the motherboard.

 
 
splat761 [Submitter] [1 Build] -1 points 12 months ago

yep. the motherboard was second choice because i ran out of cash

 
 
iAmNicklezz 2 points 12 months ago

This is an irrelevant question. But I'm going desk shopping, and I would like to know, what desk is that? Thanks in advance. :)

 
 
iAmNicklezz 1 point 12 months ago

Thanks! :)

Dem terrible cables. A razer logo? What a declaration of ignorance.

16GB RAM why? W7 Ultimate why?

 
 
Ggadget 1 point 11 months ago

Some people like razer, and while their products are overpriced, they are good. Well at least most of them.

 
 
xSWATxBadkid [1 Build] 0 points 11 months ago

I beg to differ, their customer support blows, their Synapse software is broken, they will start to break after a year or two of usage, and are terrible overpriced to begin with.

 
 
Alexandar07 1 point 11 months ago

i love razer it may be overpriced but every one of my mice was razer and they never even scratched !

 
 
Ggadget 1 point 11 months ago

I have some of their stuff, and synapse works fine. I have not used the products for a year, but they seem good so far. I don't usually recommend them to others who want to save money though. I do know there are better products, in terms of build quality and price.

 
 
xSWATxBadkid [1 Build] 1 point 11 months ago

Synapse never saves my "gaming mode" profile on my blackwidow ultimate BF3. And it is confusing, none of the button say what they do, you must learn by trial and error.

 
 
Ggadget 1 point 11 months ago

I don't know why it doesn't work for you. It works for me. But I understand your point.

 
 
on4209 [1 Build] 1 point 12 months ago

Yes definetly work on those cables, and why that 500Gb hdd? i have seen deals on 2tb 7200rpm for $79. Nice build though!

 
 
splat761 [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 12 months ago

its not that specific one. ive had this one for a few years. its similar to the one listed tho

 
 
on4209 [1 Build] 1 point 12 months ago

oh ok that makes sense

 
 
Goku671 [1 Build] 1 point 12 months ago

what i would of recommended was get one of the rog boards for the integrated sound card and take out the xonar. For your price range, if you wanted to get great sound i think the supreme fx from asus would of been perfect. You could of saved money and just got 8gb of ram and got a better ahardrives.

 
 
splat761 [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 12 months ago

i originally had 8GB of ram. i upgraded to 16gb recently

 
 
Eatin_Sundip 1 point 10 months ago

Why 16gbs? do you do virtual work?

 
 
splat761 [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 12 months ago

ill look into that. i plan on upgrading the board in the near future. i thought that this one had 6ch but i got the wrong version on accident. im looking into getting one of those SSD hybrid drives

 
 
Mattios 1 point 12 months ago

How is the 7870 going? I'm planning on getting the exact same one.

 
 
splat761 [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 12 months ago

its great!

 
 
evil_rat 1 point 11 months ago

how do you like your rosewill wireless adapter?

 
 
splat761 [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 11 months ago

its okay. but not the greatest.

 
 
Trinity596 [3 Builds] 1 point 9 months ago

haha where did you get that desk, i want one!

 
 
Sh4dow_Ph4ntom [1 Build] 1 point 1 month ago

+1 for the poster but can i ask what performance you're getting from that cpu as i'm thinking about getting one as an upgrade from my fx6300

 
 
mark5892 [2 Builds] 0 points 12 months ago

Why the 16 gigs of ram for a gaming build?

 
 
splat761 [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 12 months ago

not strictly gaming

 
 
splat761 [Submitter] [1 Build] -1 points 12 months ago

well new ish. got it all a month ago. did the last upgrade today wish was the RAM and the desk

 
 
splat761 [Submitter] [1 Build] -2 points 12 months ago
