Description

So yeah. Not much to say. I built a computer today. I didn't go for Haswell because I already had the CPU and Motherboard. This was basically a reiteration of a build I didn't post, but with better parts. I use this computer for gaming only. Not even internet browsing really. I might add some pictures of the setup later. This was the first build I did on my own for the most part.

(THERMAL ARMOR REASON) I took the Thermal Armor off because the H100i wouldn't fit if the armor was on.

(WHY A 650Ti) Because I don't really need a overpriced GPU for the type of games I play.

$240 for a 650ti boost? Is that right?

Hmm spend all that money on a Sabertooth and remove the armor? Ok preference, but you could have saved money on the mobo and got a nice Gigabyte or Asus for about $130 and for the price you overpaid for that 650ti, you could have opted for a 770 or a cheap 7970. (I know you already had the mobo but it is not worth it if you have to cheap out on other parts.)

I had to remove the armor or else the H100i wouldn't fit. Even without the armor it is still very tight. And this motherboard wasn't mine, it was my dad's and he lent it to me so I used it in this build. The price on the GPU was a typo. Hopefully that answered some of your questions. :)

Okay well thanks for explaining then. You said your rig was for only gaming so a better video card would be wiser for a pure gaming rig. But, as always if it works for you, who can say **** amiright? Btw nice dog =P

Pure gaming doesn't need a better video card than that. I get 60FPS with max settings in all games so I'm happy. I have another build for gaming.

http://pcpartpicker.com/part/sapphire-video-card-100351sr A 7970 for just over $300 and a vapor x goes for $350. Take the $100 getting a cheaper (quality still) mobo plus the $240 he paid for the 650 ti and that's a $340 for a 7970. I mentioned the 770 because it is a bit more and offers a lot better performance. They overpaid for the features on the case IMO and that would have saved money as well.

I wanted something under 200$ for the GPU. I didn't need anything better, I got a 680 for that. I wish I could've gotten a different case as well, but I was limited on options.

hmm, yes. being 15 really did suck.

now that im 17 i can get a job and my computer just died.

our power plant Diablo Canyon went offline and when that happened it killed my pc.

Im going to try and get PGE pacific gas and electric to pay for my new one since its there fault that it died.

By the way nice build.

Being 15 isn't bad, you have no expenses and all the money you make is yours.

650Ti is perfect for gaming. I don't need to waste my money on a 780. And I'm too young to get a job. I'm only 15. (at least where I live, I can't get a job.) Not going to lie though, if I did get the money for a 780, I would just replace it with the 680 in my first build and give this build the 680.
