I wanted to do a new build for the year, with these new "next gen" consoles being announced. The old excuse of "all my friends play on Xbox, so I play on Xbox" won't be valid anymore, since Xbox One hasn't been released yet ; ) These components are easily down-gradable, meaning you don't have to spend this kind of $$ just to do a similar build, and you'd still have a gaming PC that outperforms....."next gen" consoles lol. Even with an i5, GTX 670 and a single SSD you'd be cutting the price by as much as 75%. My version of this is purely enthusiast built : )

This build is slightly larger than a shoebox and only requires one power cord, that's it. The monitor is wired into the PSU, and the mobo's bluetooth function allows for the integration of a wireless headset as well as the use of the Jawbone Jambox. While I could have also used a wireless mouse and keyboard, this rig will definitely be used for high-end gaming and I love my Razer products lol

The build is currently at 90% completion, with the installation of exterior trim pretty much the only thing left to finish. Stress testing/benchmarking has been great so far, with the Titan complimenting the small form factor of this build with low temps and quiet performance.

Just to give you an idea of the results, I'm getting 120+ Fps on BF3 completely maxed, around 90+ Fps minimum on Metro: Last Light. More updates to follow : )

But if a 780 Ti can get 110 FPS average on ultra on Battlefield 3 (not even OCed/turbo boosted... just in its low clock speed mode) then why not a Titan?

  • 61 months ago

the 780ti is a gaming card, the Titan is a CUDA card that Nvidia decided to put in their gaming line for some stupid reason

Yeah, like a GTX Titan won't beat a Playstation 4. Makes sense.

Oh. I thought that a Commodore 64 was more powerful. Oh well, my judgement was only slightly off.

;)

  • 56 months ago

Maybe not a Commodore 64, but it MIGHT, MIGHT be able to pull off Minesweeper at 5 FPS on the lowest settings.

Only the Titan Supercomputer can successfully play Minesweeper.

  • 52 months ago
  • 6 points

5 frames is a little too generous, it's probably more like 0.12 fps on minesweeper at lowest settings. Either that or it crashes instantly. You'd need like idk, NASA's computer to run minesweeper. But a rock definitely could, without a doubt play minesweeper :D

Props on a very unique build. Do you not think a Titan is a bit overkill for a 1366 x 768 resolution monitor though? coulda saved at least $600 and gotten a card that would still run everything flawlessly at that resolution. +1 on the build nonetheless.

  • 77 months ago
  • 27 points

Thank you : )

Yes, even cards in the 500 series could have handled these resolutions, I mainly went with the Titan for three reasons:

-It barely generates heat and unless I'm running something like Metro maxed out, it's super quiet -Titan is optimized for multi-output setups, which is awesome when combined with the WiDi enabled motherboard! (playing on my 55" tv at the same time =D ) -My current main build is 680's SLI, so eventually I will swap one of those into this portable and grab another Titan to go SLI in that main rig

Definitely a good question and I reasoned similarly before finally deciding on this card

WOWEE. single coolest build on the site, period. Saying it eats consoles is an understatement. One thing, for that kind of a build I would have gotten a better monitor. Your wasting the titan's power with a $70 monitor that runs 780p at 60fps. Its a huge bottleneck. I know you had size constraints, but considering everything you could have found something better. Overall kickass build

It's kind of an obscure briefcase I found at a thrift shop, 16"x11"x4.5" dimensions. For a power button I just purchased a replacement motherboard header kit, you could actually probably just use an original PC case's kit if you take the time to pull it from there. It was a little harder to build but if you plan the layout in advance and jott down your measurements as you go, you'll do fine : ) This case is pretty small, 16"x11"x4.5", so you could even use a slightly larger case and get some great results

So i'm a first time builder and I was wondering if this was a decent build for the money(in Canadian Dollar). My question is that could this computer run games like Titanfall, Battlefield 4, and any other graphically intense game on high:ultra settings?

Thanks for replying & stopping by :)

Nice, but for a cpu of that price, the 4790k would get you slightly better performance and it is superior to anything else when it comes to overclocking. Other than that, your build looks about as premium as it gets without spending >5000. That could probably tie up in performance with a 5000 $ build. I adore your ability to form such a great build for what you are paying.

You know you have a "next gen" computer when you only have SSDs as storage. It was a surprise to see that PSU wihout any case on it.... I hope there isn't too much dust around this computer.

Great build, I'm thinking of doing something similar, but using a vintage case from something like a non-working Osborne one, they're rare so I have to find a way to make it work and keep it around $500.

Seeing as these usually have no ventilation I'll probably have to mutilate the case a bit, but it's all for the sake of science.

This will be my first time modding, do you have any suggestions or tips?

hey man im planning on doing a similar type of build however i want a bigger, and better screen. im planning on using this panel http://www.panelook.com/LP173WF2-TPA1_LG%20Display_17.3_LCM_overview_14169.html along side this converter http://dp2retina.rozsnyo.com/ this build isnt gonna happen anytime, im waiting till pascal, but anyway i was wondering could possibly try this out? i mean if youre interested, you already have the pc, and you maybe want a better screen, this is 120hz 1080p, and maybe you can give an update. im not sure if this would even work, but if you want a better screen for your briefcase pc this is an option, and if it works you can post an update.

Looks at the PC's specs Meh... Not bad, but could use some upgrades...

Looks at the PC's pics WTH?! THAT IS INCREDIBLE! O_o

Edit: To Clarify, I think the RAM should be bumped up, since it has a Titan in it... Other than that, good specs from what I can tell :P

This build is pretty awesome considering the beast specs and pretty small form factor DIY case, no complaint against that, however, I don't know if it's that great for long term portability, but I didn't see it myself, so I don't know. I would've put in a HDD for mass storage, because SSD has shorter lifespan. Your 15.6" display is good for the size, no offense against 1366x768 res, since you use your PC a lot on TV. The i7 is a good choice because it has low TDP and lot performance.

If I were you I would do some major tweaks to slim the case down & save power. The parts I would replace is following:

8GB DDR3-1600 RAM Only one 500GB SSD 1TB 7200RPM HDD GeForce GTX 750 Ti (lot less performance but most power efficient + VERY SMALL)

An awesome addition would be if you add 12V batteries which are found in motorbikes, which is about 6x4x3 inches, so you can play games ON THE GO!!!

Great recommendations, staying with SSD I did recently upgrade to a single 1tb mSata SSD, since a normal HDD is unable to fit in such a tight space. How cool would that be to be able to use this anywhere with a portable battery?? =D After much research I've found that even the smallest amount of portable power I could implement would add significant weight to the briefcase : / But these ideas would probably be viable in the near future for sure!

On the topic of screen size, just wait till I finish this next portable build... 6144x1536 resolution! =D

hdmi is not terrible. It can handle sound and 1080p at 60Hz very fine. Unlike DVI or VGA, you will need extra cord for sound.

he said he is hooking that computer to a 1080p TV. He knows why he wants GTX TITAN (even though looks too much compared to 780 Ti), because he is probably playing high-end games like AC4 and Metro at max graphic settings and 60+ frames per second. Yes, for me it would be overkill since I can live with lower settings (somewhere mid/high)and 40-50 frames per second.

[comment deleted by staff]

he is using that on a TV as well. The 15" in the case is when there is no other display around.
