Description

Hey, I thought Id put up my current gaming rig, I built this about two years ago, so some of the parts might seem out of date, the monitor is also not a VS247, but rather a VS242. What do you think? and as it is coming up to its two year anniversary i was thinking of upgrading a few parts? any suggestions. Also I have two monitors, the Asus VS242 and a Sony 3d ps3 display.

Nice build, not sure how good it was 2years ago since I just started getting into the pc stuff a couple of months ago. The only thing that really needs an upgrade are the cpu and gpu. Depending on your budget, try to aim for a FX-8350 and GTX 670. Or you could get an AMD card: Radeon HD 7950. 7970, or 7970 ghz edition/

Yeah I was thinking of upgrading to the 8 core cpu, and the 670, they are both on my new egg wish list. two years ago this was nice, still love it!

If you can, the Radeon HD 7970 ghz edition is a great buy since the drivers are getting better. They also overclock really good.

in no way trying to sound offensive but you should dedicate a day to just sitting down and fixing up some wire management, even zip ties can go a long way.

+1 on the cable management. Not just for looks, it frees up airflow and keeps your computer happy.

I totally agree with you, i think it would be smart to probably sit down, do some dusting, and then rewire nicely

Agreed, it looks pretty bad. I mean, have a window, at least make it worth looking into.

I feel like the motherboard costs too much, and the PSU is overkill. Still, it's not bad.

The PSU is definitely overkill, but its something that i can bring on to my next build in the future

The motherboard is awesome.

Yeah, but when it costs more than the CPU, I feel like it's overkill.

I love my motherboard, and AMD is always cheaper, that's why I put more into my motherboard

To be fair, the 1090T was around $250 when they were first released.

Well, I'll accept that, since for gaming, I see it as (for value that is) GPU price>CPU>motherboard.

  • 82 months ago

Yeah when i built this everything cost my around 2k, so the GPU and CPU where a bit more expensive

So you wouldn't pair a 3570k with a Z77 Sabertooth motherboard?

Other tahn the cable management this thing is beastly throw a new CPU in there and you're ready for just about anything.

holy over-the-top optical drives, Batman! you could run disc cloning if you wanted to! XD

i would definitely upgrade the CPU and GPU, preferably to an FX-8350 and a GTX670/HD7970. you could also go for another hard drive or two; it never hurts to have extra storage space.

Ha I actually have used it for cloning, make two copies of a disc at once, its nice

Awesome rig! Very similar to mine actually. If I were you, I'd upgrade the video card before the CPU as the 1090T is still amazing 2 years later. :)

Totally agree with you, the 1090T was such a great buy, and it hasn't let me down yet

I built this two years ago, some of your recommended parts weren't even out then, and if they where they costed much more. I decided from the beginning I was doing an AMD build, and am very happy with the choice because id be running a sandy bridge and not ivy since they weren't around at the time... also my gpu is not the best I completely agree, that's why im looking to upgrade it first. My ramm is the best support for my motherboard and is over clocked nicely, but I probably could have gone for the 1600. The mouse and key board is your opinion, I support Logitech and my mouse is gorgeous. Thanks for the comment tho

How about you just stop being being a douche and let him enjoy his computer? Honestly, your preaching is getting old.

You're very welcome sir!

These damn kids, you know? Think they know everything! Just gotta put them in their place, lol. That, and I can't really stand Intel fanboys. Like everything from Intel is the freaking Gospel, or "because the benchmarks say so!"

You have a lovely computer. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise. I'd kill to have a Phenom II X6 1090T.

By the way, I'm a girl, heh. No worries though.

Then maybe you should stop preaching the Gospel of Intel, fanboy.
