I have a few questions out of curiosity:

  • Why professional as opposed to premium for 30 or more less?

  • Why 3 sticks of ram?

  • Any reason for the 680 vs. the recently price dropped 770/780's? I assume it's due to when you purchased, but thought I'd ask.

Otherwise, interior looks pretty clean. The price feels high when you just view it until you see the 680.

thanks i spent a hella long time on cable management. and yes i bought it before the 780 went out. i think in going to save up for a 780 ti or even wait for the gtx 880 whenever it comes out. (or what ever nvidia names it) the 3 sticks of ram..... eh i dont know. im probably gonna max it out at 32 eventually.

You need pro for more than 16 gigs of ram. I didn't know they made 4gb 680s; I thought they were only 3gb.

You can't use premium with 16G or more of ram, as in it's just not detected or not used? For instance if I had a MB that let me use extra as ramdisk, would windows prevent that if it were just home premium?

i dont exactly know why you cant use more than 16 for premium but i think its a way to get people like me to spend the extra 30 bucks. well they won this time. its a sowtware limitation.

thats a good point but the points don't matter to me that much.

thats a good point but in terms of the 780 it wasn't out yet when i got the 680. and i needed the extra ram for ramdisk. so my minecraft server runs smoothly and chunks load instantaneously

Ok, I can see that. I was just wondering "Why the 680, not anything newer?" And I guess the more RAM the better the server will run.

Very nice build, but you really only need 8gb of ram for gaming, 16gb to futureproof. Also, why cheap out on the psu?

read the description and 16 is not futureproofing

i recently edited the description mainly because of his comment. but by the way how did you stumble upon my build so fast? i only put it up a few hours ago

  • 73 months ago

so thats how it works. im new to pcpartpicker. and ive used at max without my ramdisk 9.2 GB of ram at one time while recording googling and playing Minecraft and the server.(which is now on ramdisk) and a few other random programs. so 8 would not be enough for me. close but not enough. pardon my poor sentence structure and grammar anomalies; im usually better about that.

At least you can use a semicolon properly!

ehh it works. no power faults yet. (im gonna get a bigger one like 1000 watts to sli). and i host a minecraft server so the extra 16 gb ram is for ramdisk. made chunk loading so much faster. so much.

I highly suggest swapping out that PSU for this XFX Proseries 850W. Much higher quality (rebranded Seasonic, and enough wattage for SLI, should you go that route in the future. Plus it's on sale right now, which is nice. :p

Other than that, I like your build. Happy gaming. :)

thanks for the advice. i might have to save a little, because my coffers are a little deflated at the moment. apparently computers are expensive. so i hope it stays on sale long enough for me to get one.

Or maybe it'll drop in price even more with Black Friday coming up. :p
