Description

This is my first build for personal use. Like..world of warcraft. This build costed me from 1.5k to 1.6k. I also needed an extra Sata cable and a cable for my optical disk drive. This was originally a budget build till my dad supported me with $800 bucks. *correction. Motherboards don't come with its own screws. The case has built in standoffs. This computer is now fully functional and it boots up on moniter in 6 seconds. It takes a few more to get to the password/sign in screen. I was taking snapchat videos of its boot time for fun lol The computer is cold to the touch. Its almost uncomfortable to rest your arm on it. I may have installed the fans in the wrong way. It gathers dust like a champ. If you could feel the outake wind fans. The h100i liquid cooler has very loud fans. I brace for the noise every time. If anyone could show me how to do intake and outtale fans thatd be swell. Maybe it would run even better. A buddy of mean used a technique where he'd tape the extra holes to get better wind force. I feel numbingly cold when I touch it so I dont think i need it. Im also going to follow his lead and use nashua tape to disperse lighting. Make this baby a center piece of my room when I turn it on. Lol or a disco light.

First, the build looks awesome.

Second a couple things aren't making sense to me:

-Is there any specific reason you went all the way back to a sandy bridge CPU? Is it for the better OC?

-Any particular reason you got a triple channel memory kit when your MB/CPU combo only handles dual-channel? If you install that third stick of RAM you will immediately lose the dual channel functionality and performance will drop down to single-channel data rates.

-Did you get a good deal on the GPU (and what did you spend on the build overall)? I actually almost got the same model GPU, but decided on a 2 GB version of the GTX 760 after my research showed the card does not have enough power to reach the levels where 4 GB is beneficial.

However, if there is a game that slightly starts using more than 2gb's of vram, you will begin to see proportionate fps drops.

From the benchmarks I saw, by the time you hit resolution and texture setting levels that actually utilize more than 2 GB VRAM, the actual GPU on the GTX 760 is unable to process frames fast enough to make it worthwhile. The benchmarks that I saw only utilized 3 or 4 games, but by the time there was more than 2 GB VRAM in use each game was down around or under the 20 FPS rate on the 760.

First of all, I did not expect help thank you all. This is actually my first build.Thank you. Second, the three mushkin rams were bought on accident. Now I have to buy a single fourth one. The third ram isn't even in use. This build was on a bFirst of all, I did not expect help thank you all. This is actually my first build.Thank you. Second, the three mushkin rams were bought on accident. Now I have to buy a single fourth one. The third ram isn't even in use. This build was on a budget I only intended to spend 1k on it and by the time the parts for it came my dad supported me with 800 bucks. Thats when I started buying better stuff and future proofing what I could. as for the gpu it is awesome. I got the 4gb in hopes of learning how to OC. I havent started yet but playing wow I stay around 70fps even in raids. This computer was meant to oc but I think i like it as is. I don't know what doge is but WoW stands for world of warcraft.

How Do you think this will do in 25-man raids? http://pcpartpicker.com/user/littleman99/saved/QzGtt6 I wanted to be able to run 60FPS anywhere and at least 30FPS in raids. Thanks!
