Description

I use this build for high end gaming as well as just using it for an overall computer. I like to modify my stuff and actually start this computer with a physical key. I recently fixed my prices for what I pages for them so it's more rational.

Even though people say your GPU matters more than your CPU for gaming, your CPU still matters quite a bit. A 4350 will REALLY bottleneck your performance. For a $1600 build, an i7 or 9590 (preferably the i7), should be used. Other than that, nice man, nice.

The 8350 is probably the best buy for this guy, without completely redoing his build or breaking his wallet.

i5 won't bottleneck it at all and its $100 cheaper than an i7. I would only recommend an i7 if he were to be editing videos. The 8350 in his build would be best.

That PSU looks like it's suffocating on the carpet.. :/

I actually have a peice of cardboard underneath the case also the case has a filter under the PSU just in case it was trying to have some carpet for dinner.

Just to clairify, since I'd not seen one of them until a couple days ago, but those expansion slot case fans, do they intake or exhaust from the rear of the case?

I only ask because if it exhausts out the rear of the case (which is what my common sense is telling me), the way it's setup is stealing fresh air from your GPU's intake, which will probably actually reduce cooling efficiency.

This particular one blows air into the card. If you want to look it up, it's the Antec Vcool.

That's why I asked. Guess I'm just not used to the idea of drawing air from the back of a case.

Two things: You can edit the prices of your parts to match what you actually paid for them, thus avoiding confusion.

Also, that keyboard looks incredibly uncomfortable and bulky.

I like it its actually pretty ergonomic but it definitely took some getting used to at first.

Nice build. +1 Is the mouse comfortable?

Maybe dust a bit....

Yes I love my mouse. You can adjust the overall size and almost each individual price of the mouse to get it to that perfect feel.

Nice solid build. Enjoy! +1

At this price range it would've been smarter to go with an Intel cpu/mobo, unlocked Haswell i5s go for ~$200 and show a huge performance boost in general operations than a AMD processor.

A lot of the total price came from the peripherals and the $300 error on how much he paid for the graphics card. He paid something more like $1125. Not to mention that almost $300 more is from the storage alone.

Yea I apologize I just fixed all prices.

I mean, at 1K I still would've gone intel. Just my 2 cents. Nice build overall though!

Price has only some influence over what brand of CPU you should use. You also have to take into account uses of the computer. For instance, this guy wanted a high-end gaming build, so he got a fantastic graphics card, and spent less money on the actual CPU. I'm also intrigued as to what Intel CPU you would have had him use, because the 4350 is one of the best CPUs at the $120 price point.

You're kinda constricting it somewhat to specific terms, but I would've used the i5-4670K, w/ unlocked mobo. For general computing tasks (such as unzipping a file), playing CPU-intensive games (such as physics games like Kerbal Space Program), as well as boot time between log-in and all startup programs launched, the i5 destroys the FX chips and at the 1k price range I consider it a worthy upgrade. Don't get me wrong, even at $750 I'd be going AMD, they're great budget CPUs. I've seen Intels outperform AMDs time and time again, however, which is why I suggested it.

If you're really curious, I threw together a quick i5 parts list for right around 1k, complete with a R9 280X that will match if not best the 7950.

The FX-8350 costs $140 so you might wanna upgrade now.

I'm sorry, but did you say that you start your PC with.. A KEY? Fantastic, +1. My only suggestion is that you should probably flip that PSU.

  • 75 months ago

Yes I took out the power button (shown in one of the pictures) and replaced it with a key switch from a local hardware store then just wired it to the power pins and now I start my PC with a key.

That's beautiful, and I may have to steal that idea!

How did you get windows 8.1 pro for only $40

  • 75 months ago
  • 1 point

When windows 8 first came out you could purchase it for $40 then free upgrade to 8.1.

http://pcpartpicker.com/p/2mfWo you should have gotin this kind of a build. I think the 32 inch monitor is to overkill, you could have just gotten a 32 inch tv

Nice base parts but like others suggested the 4350 will bottleneck your video card a bit. You won't really lose maximum frames but the minimum framerates suffer a bit (I know from experience). Going for an i5 combo I went from a minimum of ~30 FPS on a game like Skyrim at its most stressful to about 50 minimum. Plus things like Dolphin play at max settings (if you play that). Nothing wrong with the build though, just don't understand why you have so much "extra" stuff like 4 hard drives and a nearly $400 monitor at only 1080p.

Nice build. Fx4350 is underrated ^

So i have a quick question. I own a Gigabyte GtX 760 4gb and was wondering it's that card actually fits inside the case. The reason for my inquiry being pcpartpicker says that card isnt compatible with the m59 case.

It fits fine in mine but probably could not Sli.

I am planning on using this cpu. Do you find it good for gaming, or do you suggest I replace it with another one? I am not an extremely High End gamer, but I would prefer if I didn't lag while playing them

Might want to dust your desk off, just a thought.

Love the build overall and it looks stunning, but a 4350 for this ??? No way, in the future I highly suggest upgrading to at least a 6300. or 6350 if oc-ing isn't your thing. But for any budget over 1200 dollars, Intel is usually the way to go. Other than that great build. And a damn good job on cable management.
