Working on getting current performance data.
Idk to me just looking at it it would seem the video card is a little low key for the higher end parts your getting.
You think so? You very well may be right, but why would you say that anyhow. Just so I get a little more knowledge that is.
Well if you want an AMD card I'd at least look at the R9 270x, it's around the same price and gives slightly better performance. The difference is that it's much newer so it has potential to be more reliable.
On the plus side, you could always crossfire a r9 270x with the 7870 later on.
Would love a more detailed description..
nice build. what was ur budget?
My budget was around 1100 with everything.
More of a description would be nice, along with more pictures.
Assuming it's for gaming, 16gb of ram is overkill and the PSU is way overkill.
I question a few of the chioces made parts wise, but I will not like nor dislike until I know exactly what this is for, upgrades planned for it, etc.
The main purpose will be for gaming, but I also use it to compose, edit, and render video from video games as well as other sources. I also do a bit of CAD and CNC mill work for guns and bullets, so I just built something very versatile!
The PSU isn't terribly overkill and if they decide to crossfire, it will be fine.
I guess not for crossfire. Then, it won't be terribly overkill. But the 600 watt version would probably have been plenty.
I take back the ram being overkill, too, now that I know that some video editing will be done. (Although that specific ram is a little on the expensive side for 16gb, but not ridiculously overpriced, considering it is vengeance.)
Overall, Fausty0, nice build!
Looks nice! Would be cool to see more pictures though.
Posted more pictures.
Love those pictures! Great build you got there :)
If this build is for gaming, you could have gotten 2x4gb of RAM and but that towards a better GPU imo.
I also do some editing and videos rendering. It wasn't too expensive so I just upgraded/future proofed.
Nice build but a few things are over kill. But to fix this build buy a used 7870 from amazon or something. You could find one for around $160 which won't be terrible. Not sure when you bought this but a 760 or 280x would have been better and only 8 gigs of ram.
If you don't mind me asking, what do you think is overkill and why?
Well the ram for one, why buy 1866 over 1600 when you wont see any real life benfits. Second 8 gigs would have been fine. Finanlly 600 watts would have been fine unless you want to crossfire. Could have saved around 150-200 dollas and thrown that towards a better gpu.
He mentioned in a comment that he does some 3d modelling and video rendering so the ram is adequate. I agree about the psu & gpu. If its about spreading your budget as thin as you can, then you're definitely right. I think It will matter less and less as time goes by though. That psu would be adequate for future builds, overclocking, sli/crossfire, and drive additions. Not a bad build by any means but the budget probably could have been spread a little bit thinner to maximize current performance.
I think you could've gone with the 8320 and cheap cooler. Then, you would have been able to get a 270x which is a little faster than the 7870 and an update on the design. Also, Gigabtye released a newer version of that motherboard a while ago.
humm okay, I am still a bit new to all the products and why which one is better, etc.
As long as you are enjoying it and it does everything you need it to, then it doesn't matter.
maybe should have looked into a better board with that 8350. you are not going to get much out of it in terms of overclocking. personally not a fan of Gigabyte's AMD boards. I would have looked more at Asus or MSI.
can you please tell me your performance with games preferably bf4
Okay, I had my settings is auto which would put me in the High to Ultra high quality settings. I just recently switched it to ultra high as the default and I am running with 56-67 FPS according to BF4 in game stats and my Video Recording Software.
I tested it our on the range and it still looks as amazing as ever.
thank you ima get this processor add me on origin if you want ventus1238
not a problem. I added you on Origin as well.
thank you very much man im going to bu the processor today
