cable management... other than that, very fine job!!!

PretaxSkydiver 2 Builds 1 point 38 months ago

Nice job looks good. Cable management is always a plus but newer builders always get some slack for it. I had the same GT 610 back almost 4 years ago and wasn't happy with it. When I upgraded a few years back I went to a R7 260X 2GB and it work so much better. So if you are looking to play anything like Skyrim, Total War Series, Call of Duty, or really any AAA game that's in the last few years I would have gone with a 960 if you wanted to stick to Nvidia or 260X/360 for AMD. That would get you moving forward in gaming. For anything else movies, videos, etc it's going to be enough. Like the case, not a bad line up of parts for a low-end build. +1 Hope you enjoy.

yea the 610 is just for now budget ya know lol

PretaxSkydiver 2 Builds 1 point 38 months ago

Lol I know. Its a pain to work with a budget when you play higher demanding games but yet still even the low-end cards give you plenty sometimes for what you need.

Sirpz 1 Build 1 point 38 months ago

I'm going to try and give you helpful criticism without coming off seeming like a ****, you shouldn't have gone with that processor, if you wanted a good dual core Intel, go with the $50 anniversary Pentium that preforms probably better than that, and it can OC up to like 4.7GHz. The GPU you picked is so insanely stupid, you could have gotten a 750ti that would EASILY double your performance, maybe even triple it for $99, thermal compound is stupidly overkill, you only should have bought like 0.5g of thermal compound, not 30g... SSD is ok but not necessary for budget PSU is ****, should have gone to at least 500w.. because upgradability.. that wireless adapter is ****, good luck playing online games, and OS was not necessary, on Microsofts website you can get it for free just use a flashdrive, but case I give A+, and memory, you should have gone 8gbs of ram. again, just trying to give helpful criticism, sorry if I came off like a ****

I can speak from experience with a budget because my system I built early january for $350 and it could probably run laps around yours, heres my build http://pcpartpicker.com/p/vsDcJx

Sirpz 1 Build 1 point 38 months ago

a 750ti would be plenty, I can play fallout 4 on my machine I made for $350 at ultra average 80fps (60 heavily modded)

PretaxSkydiver 2 Builds 1 point 38 months ago

Well you must be one lucky person because I've looked up some benchmarks on the 750Ti on Fallout 4 here: http://www.gamersnexus.net/game-bench/2177-fallout-4-pc-video-card-fps-benchmark-all-resolutions and here: http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/digitalfoundry-2015-the-best-pc-hardware-for-fallout-4-4023. Now I'm not saying you aren't but this isn't helping your case. Now as for the build you provide me above is not bad. Your PSU is the worst but hey no worries since it's a $15 PSU. Other than that it's a good starter. And as for your "I can speak from experience with a budget because my system I built early january for $350 and it could probably run laps around yours" **** move.

Sirpz 1 Build 1 point 38 months ago

I didn't think I mentioned I play at 720p on a borrowed monitor from a friend, if you still don't believe me I can take time to screenshot my fps

PretaxSkydiver 2 Builds 1 point 38 months ago

That makes sense then and I'm sorry for calling you out. 720p with 60+fps on Fallout 4 with a 750Ti makes sense. I don't see how that makes sense that your 750Ti beats my 260X because they are pretty close in fps on 1080p with res of 1920/1080 (what I use). In Battlefield 3 the 750Ti runs at 44.9 fps and the 260X runs at 40.1 fps. In Bioshock Infinite the 750Ti runs at 60.3 fps and the 260X runs at 50.9 fps. In Metro Last Light the 750Ti runs at 31.1 fps and the 260X runs 28.8 fps. So really they aren't that far apart, yes yours is better by a little but not enough to run laps around mine. Please research/explain further if you decide to claim something in the future. (if you are curious TechPowerUp did reviews on both.)

Sirpz 1 Build 1 point 38 months ago

Lol, you might have misconstrued my message, I was not referring to your system that I could run laps around, but Mr Keilos build. I was trying to say I built mine for half the price and I can outperform the **** outta it. Perhaps when I replied to Keilos under your message it could have come across as I was messaging you personally, if It was my mistake or PCPP derping out, apologies. But yes, 750 Ti and 260X are pretty similar overall, I much rather prefer nvidia cards however I can see the budget aspect of AMD (Which is why I went for a x4 860k). At first I purely thought you were trying to defend keilo xD

Sirpz 1 Build 1 point 38 months ago

And plus, I stated multiple times in my paragraph of sorts I wasn't trying to come off as a **** and said sorry but I was leaving criticism, you took that one statement and call that a **** move but it is the truth. the build not saying it was terrible but it was something I would call far from perfect from a budget/performance standpoint. Plus I acknowledge my **** PSU if you see my build guide on it, I had a very strict budget and couldn't afford one, however I intend to upgrade it ASAP. I don't want to claim my build it perfect from a budget-performance standpoint, I think if I would make one now it would be damn near close to perfect.

Sirpz 1 Build 1 point 38 months ago

Also, I don't know if you only saw that small sentence and my remark about fallout, but there is also the whole list of criticism you didn't even bother to acknowledge in your reply to me

AW1018 1 Build 1 point 38 months ago

U can't OC a locked i3...

[comment deleted]
Vauun 1 Build 1 point 38 months ago

Especially with stock Intel coolers, as well.

AW1018 1 Build 1 point 38 months ago

I got to 4.0 GHz on stock cooler BTW. i5 4670K here. Don't judge and don't ask how i did it. i just did.

Vauun 1 Build 1 point 38 months ago

Pics or it didn't happen.

AW1018 1 Build 1 point 38 months ago

I replaced my cooler, and now I'm at 4.4 Ghz, not seeing temps over 55 :D

xDiiThy 3 Builds 1 point 38 months ago

You can't oc and i3 and you would have been better of with a dual channel set of 1600mhz 8gb ram with a H97 mobo as I think you believed in i3 OC as spent the extra for a Z97, Sandy Bridge used to allow baseclock modifications but 100% not Haswell. Also on stock cooler so even if you were able to oc it would heat up.

keilo submitter 1 Build 1 point 38 months ago

z97 was for the future upgrade capability I still plan on water cooling so temp wont be a factor and ill have a i5 or i7 before next year and I'm not done getting ram this is just a start up and work in progress

xDiiThy 3 Builds 1 point 38 months ago

Oh Right, Sweet Okay I understand now, no worries that's a good plan, enjoy it :) I stand Corrected!

BillyBroken 1 point 38 months ago

Nice method for checking if your case fans are drawing in air...Just remember "Second hand smoke kills" :P
