I use this machine to plays the latest games and use it for school mostly. The OS I used is not something I ordered from this site, it was an old disc I installed on another computer, but now has a different OS on it.
Honest Question: Is that gtx670 from and old build or did you pay differently than what was listed. I only ask because the gtx 760 performs almost as well as a 670 but it retails for $100 cheaper.
i just got the 670 for $290. the 760 is definitely better value but the 670 outperforms it by 7% on average.
The gtx 670 is a brand new GPU. I built this back in May/June and went out of town for 2 months. I didn't know about the 700 series until after I got the 670 back in May when they just went on the market. Plus I wouldn't be able to really have gotten one of those due to the price at the time!
Sam? Sam Plant??
PSU's gonna die if you don't give the PC some clearance from the carpet.
Ok Thanks for that! I will see about raising the tower up somehow. Will a wooden board be OK for clearence? If so like how high off the carpet should it be for sufficient air flow? I don't want to put it on my desk as I have very little room to fit it on there!
A wooden board should be fine :) I'd say anything around 2 to 4cm will do the job
Ok check the right most picture I just added to this build and see what you think, its a creative solution I think! Two shelving units for the wall strapped together with twist cable ties. Seems to hold up the computer well as I am typing this!
That's actually more than enough. It should do you fine :)
Great thank you!
Could someone tell me how to check for my CPU while idle and under load? Also the same for GPU?
Check my most right picture I just uploaded.
