Build For The Girlfriend!
by Mario64
Permalink:   (33 comments)
Description

So my girlfriend wanted her own machine because she says that she feels as though she cant use mine. She tells me she will give me the money to build her one. She wanted to keep it under 1k. So this is what I came up with.

I originally was gonna go with an i5 but after doing a bit of research and accepting the fact that this would be more for regular use and only minimal gaming I refrained myself from the pricey stuff. She of course decided on the case and after that I just tried to keep the theme.

Hey, nice build! +1 Also, if your girlfriend needs to upgrade, she can always crossfire those cards. Heard it was damn good performance with two.

How much FPS do you get in games?

 
 
Mario64 [Submitter] [2 Builds] 2 points 11 months ago

I have only played Loadout on it so far and the average was 80fps. Lowest was 75 and the highest reaching 110.

I would use the cpu cooler fan in a push configuration, but nice build!

 
 
Mario64 [Submitter] [2 Builds] 1 point 11 months ago

Yeah, I originally wanted to but with the fans I have in there now I figured pull was more sufficient.

Very nice build you have for her +1. Also what keyboard and mouse is she using atm?

 
 
Mario64 [Submitter] [2 Builds] 1 point 11 months ago

KB is a Corsair K40 and the mouse is a Cooler Master Storm Recon

A very nice, solid build for daily use/minimal gaming. I really like the red case. Very nice job.

hitachi drives.... hope it doesnt die!

 
 
Mario64 [Submitter] [2 Builds] 1 point 11 months ago

Its funny you say that because it is awfully loud as if it wants to die.

 
 
EcoMCG [1 Build] 1 point 11 months ago

How's the Mobo?

 
 
Mario64 [Submitter] [2 Builds] 1 point 10 months ago

It pretty good.

 
 
CDGRockZ 1 point 10 months ago

do you have an operating system

 
 
Mario64 [Submitter] [2 Builds] 1 point 10 months ago

Yeah,we used Win7. Sorry for not putting in the description.

 
 
CDGRockZ 1 point 10 months ago

how much did you pay for it

 
 
Mario64 [Submitter] [2 Builds] 1 point 10 months ago

My friend had a copy that we used. So... free

 
 
CDGRockZ 1 point 10 months ago

ohh thats nice.

That is a pretty terrible graphics card to go along with that Proccesor.

 
 
Mario64 [Submitter] [2 Builds] 1 point 11 months ago

What would you have suggested

 
 
RealmOfVenom 1 point 11 months ago

Radeon R9 270X or Radeon 7870

 
 
Mario64 [Submitter] [2 Builds] 2 points 11 months ago

Both those cards are 100 bucks more than what I got. I figured she did not need a $200 gpu.

 
 
RealmOfVenom 1 point 11 months ago

It depends on the games. But if you upgrade to an 270X or 7870 I believe when Mantle is released the graphics cards will be able to use it. I'm not so sure about the 7790

 
 
markwheato71 -1 points 11 months ago

nice build, love the cpu but i would of went with the 7770.

 
 
Mario64 [Submitter] [2 Builds] 2 points 11 months ago

Im not too familiar with Radeon and Amd, So why the 7770?

 
 
nike2k8 [1 Build] 1 point 11 months ago

I would say the 7790 is probably the best choice for what she is doing, and will do well in the future. It is about 30-40% faster, with it being relatively inexpensive. The PSU, and aftermarket cooler are somewhat overkill though.
