i use it for gaming but its also built to eventually do some graphic designing. i built this computer so i can one day work from home as a game designer and have no issue with needing a huge computer as this one works great if not exceeds great. its with basic stuff as you see the items listed below but it runs so perfectly that when i upgrade it will do all that i need with no issue. plus i love blue so it gives it a nice glow.

Not to be rude but there are too many bottlenecks in this build :p. You have one of intels best CPU but a mediocre gaming GPU and a mediocre motherboard. A very nice build though. But I would highly suggest upgrading your graphics card in the future :)

ya i know the GPU isn't at the top of the line but it wasn't cheap either and honestly it runs really well for a 2 gb card. the mother board i'm not too stressed about because i know later on i can change it but thank you for the feed back.

hey what would you recommend for an upgrade. kinda saw some new games from e3 and well if they come for pc i want to be able to run them.

For battlefield 4, I myself am getting the 760 to when it comes out. But for a cheaper alternative you can do a radeon 7850 and it should run bf4 on medium - high at a solid fps

rio345 submitter 1 Build 1 point 52 months ago

i saw the 7850's but didn't know which card you reffering too. although i did see one with 4 gb and wasn't too sure if that was the card you meant or a different 2 gb card. btw i didn't see a single 760 anything as i didn't know what card you were talking about. :(

also and i'm sry if i keep asking questions. this was my first build and i haven't learned everything there is to know about full gaming builds but how can i pick a good gaming motherboard? how do i know what i am looking for so i don't make these errors again?

I always constantly research every single item in my build to see which is the perfect bang-for-your-buck. If there won't be a GTX 760 coming out any time soon, I'll get a radeon 7950 or 7870. Definitely always get radeon gpus from XFX. Their customer service is great and they offer a lifetime e warranty

Oh and by the way, on a new computer/part, NEVER immediately open your most graphic intensive game and max it out. That just screws it up forever. (learned that the hard way ;-;) Just browse the internet or open MS office and keep your PC idle instead of off when you're not using it for the first few weeks. Then gradually work your way up to the best games.

Nonetheless it's a great looking build!

hey i decided i'm going to get the gtx 770 soon. and i wanted to ask how do you know when your system is bottle necked? do you know any sites that can explain this?
