Description

I decided my previous PC was not enough for the games I wanted to play/do play. And I didn't think it was worth upgrading it either because just about everything needed upgraded.

Part Reviews

Motherboard

Okay motherboard. Works fine with no problems.

Storage

Really fast start up and shutdown times for Windows. Highly recommended.

Storage

Works fine and stores my games and programs I don't want on my SSD.

Video Card

This card is a beast! Runs every game I have tried on max or near max settings @ 60fps or above.

Power Supply

Solid, reliable, top quality power supply from Corsair.

Optical Drive

Works fine

Operating System

Fast and easy to work around.

Don't post those pictures, ...ouch!!

Can't you get someone's camera and take decent pics?

TheOwl18 submitter 1 Build 1 point 27 months ago

Sorry about that. I activated night mode on my phone by accident.

Hey Phil. :D

Did you take those pics while staring through a fish tank? They are blurry as heck

I have to say good job with the value of the system.

+1


Those of who you think the 980 ti is being bottlenecked, in gaming it is most likely not. He may be missing a few frames when compared to an i7; however, the quad core performs incredibly well in gaming scenarios.

Rendering and prodcution values? Well that's a whole other argument.

ABundleOfBunnies 1 Build 1 point 27 months ago

Cool exept that that GTX 980 ti is overpowering everything else in ur build.

Duartico 0 points 27 months ago

Isn't the 4460 bottlenecking the 980 ti?

tiny_voices 1 Build 1 point 27 months ago

Nope not at all.

It most likely won't, but if it does, only minorly. if the CPU was overclocked with a good Z97 board to about 4.5ghz, it should be fine.

I know, just saying that a unlocked CPU and some form of overclocking motherboard (H97,Z97 etc.) would probably relieve the minor bottleneck.

Tultamaneli 1 Build 0 points 27 months ago

It is possible to overclock non-K cpus... It's just harder and won't OC as much as the K cpus.

TechyinAZ 14 Builds 2 points 27 months ago

Yeah it's possible, but your lucky if you get 100mhz extra boost clock out if it.

Tultamaneli 1 Build 0 points 27 months ago

I did say that it wouldn't be much.

MonkeyBrick12 1 point 27 months ago

it wont go up to 4.5ghz like the guy stated.

Tultamaneli 1 Build 1 point 27 months ago

I never claimed it would. I said that a non K CPU can be OC's just not by much. -_-

qazsadf 0 points 27 months ago

yes it is.

qazsadf 0 points 27 months ago

WHY THE i5!!?!??!?!?!?!?!?!??! you have a 980 ti!.... something isnt right about this build... the 980ti should b e paired with a 5960x or a 4790k at least.... I expect to get hate from the same people who think i3's are good but I accept that...

Sorry Bro.... Some people dont even know what an i7 is... 4460 is **** I have one with a 970 and cant run anything because the cpu stutters.

johngerges582 1 point 27 months ago

Some people dont even know what an i7

Well since you seem to be the CPU god would you like to tell me what an i7 is?

TheOwl18 submitter 1 Build 1 point 27 months ago

Mine never stutters.

Also that psu will explode in a few weeks

It's not the best power supply and it should be replaced for a PC of this level, but it isn't going to burst into flames.
