Yeh it sucks it throttles the whole system

*Bottlenecks the whole system. Throttling is a completely different behavior exhibited by specific components when they get too hot or receive too much voltage.

but why

Why because its only got like 1GB of dedicated ram when most games at high detail want like 4gb

Dat GPU ain't bottlenecking anything, it's a perfect fit for that CPU and, from my brother's reports, is an awesome card that delivers great performance.

Well on system lab requirements it only ever says to upgrade the video card so that in my eyes is a bottle neck?

Don't believe it. That card works fine.

Come here. Wiggles finger

Yes, here.

Just a little closer, I don't bite.

Sets hands on your shoulders

Bro, dis ain't no entry level build. This is a medium level build.

HTPC/Family build - $100-$199.

Entry level - $200-$499.

Medium Level - $499-$899.

Pro Build - $899-$1999.

Enthusiast Build - $1999-$9999.

OMG WHY YOU NEED DIS?! Build - $9999-Anything Over 90,000.

So, as you can see, dis ain't no entry level build.

Yeah a 750 ti would have fit nicely in this build. I dont know the currency but based off the other numbers, i think you might have over paid for that gpu, kind of surprised you even found one for sale.

Yea I just noticed that. At first I was like 'Wait what? a gtx 650Ti The whole system costs 850 pounds. Why a gtx 650' I mean look at this. https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/part/asus-video-card-strixgtx750tioc2gd5

https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/part/msi-video-card-r9270xgaming2gitx

For cheaper you can get a gtx 750ti and for 5 pounds more an r9 270x.

I think the 650 was on sale at about 120 when I bought it and I rushed into it 1GB GDDR was looking into an I5 and two 980s as an upgrade but not sure yet

Ah okay that sucks. Hopefully you like your build anyhow.

Its alright but like I say video card is a downside and a bad choice

I know a friend who has the gtx 650 and he enjoys it so I guess you do too.

Definitely should have went for a 750 for £110 but this builds over a year old and its done me well,

I have to agree with the other guys you could have been more efficient with the video card. Although to tell you the truth everyones first build isn't perfect. On my first build i overpaid for ram because i got it to early. But hopefully you will make better purchasing decisions now that you have more experience. Overall i like it though. not bad

  • 63 months ago

yes definitely fell in to the trap of rushing in and buying things my first case was a mess with no cable management and the case rattled

  • 63 months ago

I still have no idea wether the 980 is worth £500 though?

  • 63 months ago
  • 1 point

it depends. if you have a job that depends on how fast you can output video then definitely get 2. If you want an almost as fast card and you only use it to edit the occasional YouTube video and for gaming, a 970 (or 2 for just a little more than a 980) would be a great and probably a better suited choice. If you're going to upgrade to a high end card then I definitely recommend a better CPU like an i5 or i7

Lol my cable management isn't great. :D although its functional and stays pretty cool.(i think)lol good luck

You DO know that the 750 is essentially a repackaged 650 with slightly lower power consumption, right?

They both have the potential to perform the exact same.

the 750 ti was the first card to feature the new Maxwell architecture, so its not a rebranded 650 ti. The performance is actually closer to a 650 ti boost. Its not a huge deal but if you pay more money for less perfomance on an older generation card i just dont think it was the smartest decision. I really like the idea of the card being powered by the pcie lane and not needing a cable.

  • 62 months ago

I don't mean to be rude, but, I said 'Essentially'. The performance is very, very similar, I use an R9 270, and my brother uses a GTX 650. But my cousin uses a GTX 750 and he brings his computer over occasionally.

I can say with one hundred percent certainty that the performance difference is only 3-6 FPS based on our tests, although I agree, the power being drawn wholly from the slot is cool.

Well, if he'd gotten the $63 GTX 650 card or a generic one of EBay, the bang/buck level would certainly have been higher than a GTX 750.

looks like a nice build. seems kinda funny that you got an ssd for less than a hard drive =P (albeit for 1/8 of the space)

  • 63 months ago

Why not a r9 280, r7 270x or something?

Hi, this may sound like a stupid question but i'm new to building a pc so bear with me lol, ok here goes... is the word "video card" another meaning for "GPU"?? Thanks for your time and sorry for the stupid question...

  • 62 months ago

yes

Ah okay, thanks for the reply :)

In the casual sense, yes. The Graphics Processing Unit is what handles all the graphics as the name suggests, so "video card" and "graphics card" are often used synonymously and interchangeably with the term "GPU". And in a day-to-day context, this is correct.

In the technical sense, no. That is incorrect. The GPU is like a CPU; it's the actual piece of silicon usually smack in the middle of a graphics card. In this particular context, you might see "GPU" and "GPU core" used synonymously. If you remove the cooler and wipe away the paste, you'll see a square die that looks like a CPU, albeit a little bit bigger and without a silver heatspreader. This is the GPU. The "graphics card" is everything the GPU sits on (basically the rest of the circuit board), and includes the VRAM, fan header(s), and the VRMs that support the GPU core. These are not the "GPU core". An example would be Nvidia's GK104 or GK110, or AMD's Tahiti XT or Hawaii XT; these four are examples of GPUs. These four are respectively used in the GTX 680, GTX 780, R9 280X and R9 280X; these are "graphics cards".

In short, you can use them interchangeably and usually won't get picked on.
