The 270R looks amazing for only being a $70 case!

Blacksm1le 1 Build 1 point 21 months ago

I know that your PC is based on the price, but the games of today become more in more demanding you will have had to invest a little more for the future

TheGloriusRooster 1 point 14 months ago

Of course you will. this is a base platform with plenty of room to upgrade. I'm pretty sure that was the whole point.

Featured build?

Nah, we try to leave the featured builds for users.

MannyPCs 1 point 21 months ago

Ok true, and besides, you can get really nice builds from others too, I just like the photos you guys take a lot and it shows me that I don't want to use a potato camera once I build a PC and post it on here

And you don't build often, so it is nice to see staff on here and talking with the users

I get around 90 fps on bf4 maxed everything with this build? So how are you only getting 55 fps?

cobbleking 2 points 14 months ago

Just buy one and put it in one of the 3.5 inch bays.

Monitor 1 Build 1 point 21 months ago

Wow those photos are magnificent, would love to see more. Also are you able to upload the Avg. FPS on the games aswell?

Dynamite_Jason 1 point 17 months ago

This is a really solid build! Though I would recommend the AMD Radeon RX 470 over the GTX 1050 ti.

I'd have to look at the individual photos to see. I leave the shutter speed up for the camera to decide and dial in the aperture I want. Most of the photos are taken at f5.6.
