So hello guys this my new build/gaming/editing/streaming pc! I built it myself and bought the parts and stuff to make sure it really last. The rig was about a grand and the main purpose was for it to last long and prevent upgrades and also to stream and play video games.Also cant find case in listings but its a ultra case and has 3 green fans. I bought the HDD off a friend.

Why no 6gb per second

With HDDs the difference is negligible, The access speed is gonna be about 50mb/s, and 3 gb/s is somewhat faster than that.

All in all I think the build is ok. Not as future proof as you might want though. I would have chosen an H77 mobo wth a lower end locked i5, this way you'd have more room in your budget for a faster gpu, which currently is you limiting factor.

You are right about the HDD speeds, however you are messing up your units. HDDs run at MB (MegaByte) and bus speeds/ internet connections and many more run at Mb (MegaBit). 8 bits are one byte so 3Gb/s is equal to 3000 Mb/s is 3000/8 = 375 MB/s. Modern SSDs run at around 500 MB/s read/write. Using SataII (3Gb/s) is going to bottleneck your SSD because 375 MB/s is lower than the read/write speed of 500 MB/s which the SSD is running at, that is why for SSDs SataIII is recommended. HDDs normally run at 50 MB/s write and around 200 MB/s read so using the 3Gb/s ports is not going to bottleneck the HDD in any way, just like you mentioned.

He doesn't have an ssd, so your point is moot.

I was trying to teach you and others who read this comment to use the right units (MB vs Mb), was not trying to make any point whatsoever. As I mentioned you where right about the HDD read/write speeds and the SataII port.

I hate having to say this to people, but you really should've done some more research before buying the parts.

It's not a bad build, but for $1000, you could've done a lot better.

Case looks cool. Inside pics please.

Part choice isn't what I'd consider future-proof (as you were going for) except for the OS, RAM, and processor. I would have maybe cut back on the RAM and put a few more dollars into the GPU/ Mobo. With that processor you'd like to have some head-room to over-clock, that board will more than likely prevent that. Also not having a CPU cooler as well. Should have maybe gone with a locked processor to put more money into other components. Also that hard drive won't do for gaming. At least if you want good performance. We live and we learn eh?

Hi, is your case the ULTRA Etorque X4? Some photos inside would be nice.

I too feel your choice of parts is not future-proof but is anything...

The 16GB of ram is nice for the video editing but if this is a primary function then the GPU my be a little underpowered.

As for the CPU/ Mobo combination I feel that a Z77 board would have been a much better match for the CPU or maybe the CPU could be stepped down to the i5-3450 0r i5-3570 if you could buy the for less than the $189 you spent on the i5-3570K at Microcenter. But here again, if video editing is your main thing then perhaps an i7 with hyper threading would be a better choice.

Sorry, I'm not a fan of your choices. "K" CPU + H61. 650? weak for gaming.

You made some odd choices here. You have a bad power supply that doesn't give its rated power. The video card is weak compared to a similarly priced 7790, the HDD is a laptop HDD which is slower than its 3.5" counterpart. Finally, the H61 board is very limited. I usually don't see a problem if people pair a locked processor with a z77 motherboard, but pairing a feature-stripped old H61 motherboard with an overclockable processor makes no sense. The things that you should do to upgrade the build are buy a z77 motherboard and buy an xfx 550 watt power supply. Then upgrade to something like a 650ti boost, 7790, or 7850. That would be the best way to redeem the build.
