Description

Hello everybody! This was my first build that I built for a class. I have not found a game that you can't run at max video settings with my horrible internet connection. It is a little pricey, but you wont be unsatisfied with this decent build. You might want to buy the RX 480 when it comes out this June 29, 2016! Nothing against the GTX 750 Ti, but the RX 480 looks way better! I originally paid about $950 for it during a sale.

Thts good as well...hopefully zen is a decent CPU ? Else its Intel all the way!!

There really isn't any logical reason it wouldn't be, I mean, they're skipping process nodes OVER the one Skylake is using, so it should be at least as powerful as Skylake.

Guess, ur right. AMD is always behind intel yet they deliver a good performance for the money.

Amd isn't always behind intel, the athlon 64 was much better than the pentium d (I'm pretty sure that is the right generation pentium) and intel's core2 quads were comparable to the pheonom cpus iirc. But intel used exclusive contracts and shady marketing to keep a bigger market share than deserved which hurt amd's returns on all the r&d it took to do that.

I have a feeling that a your CPU might bottleneck the RX 480 and also why so much RAM? Not criticising, just curious.

At the time I didn't know much about the cpu, but now that I'm getting closer to finishing my program I know it could have been better. The OK ram was just in case I needed it fit 50 different things open for school and games. Thank you for your reply.

GG though on maxing out your RAM before DDR3 becomes really expensive :)

overkill mobo and ram. aftermarket cooler not necessary. spent too much for a 1tb hdd. overkill power supply.

If he is overclocking, it's not overkill, which makes the aftermarket cooler a necessity. That's a hybrid, not an HDD. The power supply leaves room for future upgrades. If he decides to make his next build actually good, he won't need a new PSU.

I'm sorry but this is a terrible build. If you were going to spend this much money you should have went with a way stronger CPU (i5 6600K or i7 6700k). The CPU cooler was a good choice. The motherboard was a good choice in terms of overclocking, however you could have went cheaper with a different brand. That RAM is such an overkill. Unless you are running 250 programs at once, 8GB would have been PLENTY. I could never personally recommend a Hybrid because they are just so much worse than just going with an SSD and HDD. Next time just get a 1TB HDD, and a 120-240GB SSD. That graphics card was such a terrible choice. For the same, if not lower price, you could get a GTX 950, and get anywhere between 5 and 20 extra FPS. I can't say much for the case, but I will say an ATX Full Tower is only really useful for water-cooled builds. You chose wisely on the PSU, but you could have went with the gold instead for like $5 more. I'm pretty sure you need super expensive software to watch blu ray, so I wouldn't have gotten an optical drive at all. But whatever. Windows 10 Pro is good. Gigabyte and TP link have very good wireless cards for the same price, maybe even lower. Case fans are a personal choice. Same with fan controller. You can get even bigger monitors from Acer for less... That keyboard and mouse combo are probably going to fail in a year.

Overall, you really should have learned more about PC building before you built. You could have gotten WAYYYY better performance for the same price, maybe even less. This build is worth about $600 in reality.

For BluRay I think there are Windows 10 Apps or VLC should be able to run it

Thank you for your reply. This was my first build and I have looked at the gpu stats and defiantly agree with you. The monitor was on sale so I got it for $100.

Can you change the prices to what you actually paid? Noticed the completion date is awhile ago.

Lmao Sadly the 750Ti is not powerful enough to use that much Vram.
