Description

all you people who want a longer description well here it is...this is a gaming/streaming/part media center pc for my 11 year old son on his birthday for his room,i surprised him with it as i worked on it right through the night so i could have it all ready by the time he woke up in the morning.Hes been asking for his own rig for a while now but he was not expecting it until Xmas.this was a build that didnt cost me too much all at once cause i had the psu,ssd,hdd,cpu cooler and the blue ray drive already from my spare parts (all in perfect condition) the motherboard and cpu were not my first choice as i was gonna go with the 4570 and a stock mobo but the deal at microcenter was to hard to pass up...289.99 after the rebate.Now! my son will no!t be overclocking until i feel hes responsible enough but im more than happy to sit down with him and teach him cause like me he shows a great interest in anything that has to do with tech stuff..Now theres two issues with this build ..one is the 750ti, that was my decision cause i can always upgrade him in the future to a 770 or even higher who knows ,but at his age i think the 750ti will be fine for him in the begining ,the other was the case which i didnt want any part of but he picked it out a month ago even tho i tried my best to talk him out of it, but to no avail,its a mediocre case at best with the worst 3.5 drive bay system ive ever seen,the only ok thing about it is its apearence but it will have to do,all the other parts i picked and so far hes loving it with no complaints,i havnt had a chance to do any bench marking because hes been on it all day, it looks like its running titanfall ok but i have no idea what the fps is im just gonna let him enjoy it until theres an issue,sorry for the long description guys and girls but i guess you have to be a parent to understand that...happy building everyone! :)

i would recommend the corsair 750D or NZXT h440 with green LED lights and fans if green is your color, sorry for the late response, good luck with your build

Contrary to some of the comments above, I think this is a great starter build for an 11 year old. If I got a gift like this for my birthday when I was eleven I would have been very happy. Well done. Everything here provides a solid foundation on which many upgrades can be added in the future.+1

I wish my dad did things like this for me, although I'd rather him give me cash so I can build my own rig :D

Not a bad build. Hope he likes it! I would love to see updated prices though (putting prices for items you already had at 0.00). That would give a better idea of what you actually spent on this rig. Still +1.

Dude he should have gotten an amd cpu with a better gpu that core is too extreme for him

I would have suggested just going locked i5 and 760 or better. Why? Low maintenance. However, this system is designed for upgrading in future.

Great Job Sir.

Could I simply replace the liquid cooling with a couple of fans instead of having to deal with liquid?

I played Titanfall on a 750 Ti on high settings and it was extremely playable. The 750 Ti is incredibly powerful for the price and (more impressively) power draw.

So an i7 with 16 gigabytes of ram ( im gonna be doing alot of things with graphics) and a 750 Ti will get the job done for gaming?
