Description

This is a temporary system until I can complete Nightfury V2 (saved part list)

I find the Hybrid drive is slow, so will upgrade to a ssd and a hhd.

So little cable room behind motherboard tray, you will need flat black cables like from an RM series to properly use this. all of the fans are arctic cooling.

About the RAM, i got each stick for £21 a few years ago Case and gpu i got second hand.

Monitor is actually Dell 2007wfp, i couldn't find it on here so i picked the next best thing. Its from my old dell system.

No it ref to How to Train Your Dragon

this build need to be named Toothless :)

uuberk 4 points 49 months ago

Look at the monitor's wallpaper.

dragoon20005 4 Builds 3 points 49 months ago

Oh... can be confusing

That CPU is going to be holding you back. Spending a little extra on something like a 750K would've gone a long way.

He mentions as v2 of the build in his saved parts list:

http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/user/bilalnuman/saved/FTRH99

The 860k seems to be the way he's going, the best fm2+ proessor currently available.

TheGingerBeard 3 Builds 2 points 49 months ago

Looking at the saved parts list you mentioned, you have a pretty good upgrade path, but I wouldn't bother going from an r7 265 to a 750ti, it looks like the one you have is better:

From the same review, and your v2.1 list, the 760 looks good, but it isn't spectacularly better, you can get currently get a 970 for around £100 more, which should be a massive upgrade, so I would save up and go for that instead:

However, the cpu upgrade and ssd should be a definite priority :-)

+1 anyway, nice upgradeable build

Thanks, i just realized how silly buying a 750ti would be.

The 960 is said to be released at 300$, instead of buying the piece of junk, just buy a 970.

WolfenWings 1 Build 1 point 49 months ago

$200. Never go by rumors.

Moltraze 1 Build 2 points 49 months ago

I posted that comment before the 960 was released. I know that the 960 is 200$. Still, price to performance ratio on it sucks, just go with an R9 280/280x. Better performance for the same cost.

WolfenWings 1 Build 1 point 49 months ago

I'm gonna go with a 970 myself. But yeah the 690 dosen't seem worth it to me.

Truenirvana 3 Builds 2 points 49 months ago

No matter how cheap it is, DON'T get that Kingston V300 man. Just save an extra $10-15 for a quality SSD.

Sebas152286 1 point 41 months ago

What is wrong whit it I am building my first computer and I am juat asking why is it bad

Truenirvana 3 Builds 1 point 41 months ago

It's the worst SSD on the market. Just google more information about it.

Sebas152286 1 point 41 months ago

Ok thanks

dragoon20005 4 Builds 1 point 49 months ago

I think of Toothless when I see Nightfury

Get the 760K or 860K

you can update the mobo BIOS with your current CPU so that the 860K is plug and play later

Crucial or Sandisk SSD are good for the price now.

Needs a description.

bilalnuman submitter 13 Builds 1 point 49 months ago

sorry juggling different builds, have updated a little.

epicnerdgreg 1 Build 1 point 49 months ago

I personally would've gotten 1600 ram, as you can find 1600 ram for cheaper than that, and spent less on the GPU and more on the CPU. otherwise, it seems like decent computer. Can't wait to see the V2 though

ajpinton 11 Builds 1 point 49 months ago

Good PC for the price, looks like you are using it for a security system? What OS did you go with?

bilalnuman submitter 13 Builds 1 point 49 months ago

The small box on the far right is the security system dvr, I just have the feed connected to the monitor on my desk. Using windows 7 home premium.

Wcschuyler 9 Builds 1 point 49 months ago

very very clean i love it, maybe grab a 860k, a faster hdd and u got yourself a capable gaming rig.

edit* checked out your saved parts list, your on the right path, maybe i can help you a bit, stick with everything you got here, just get an 860k and an hybrid 2tb sshd, everything else is fine man. all the other parts you listed are redundant. if you do that you will have a solid pc.

bilalnuman submitter 13 Builds 1 point 49 months ago

After using my toshiba hybrid drive, I've decided its not for me. It will cost more but I think I ca get better performance out of a ssd and hdd combo.

the_walker_lives 1 Build 1 point 49 months ago

I HATE ARCTIC COOLING!!!!! I ordered TWO cpu coolers from them, and when they arrived the fan was missing, and no mounting accessories were included. I attempted to get a refund. Long story short I got "bummer. Buy another one." I ALWAYS try to avoid that company. Plus, when I ordered the spare parts for on of the coolers, it only dropped the temp about 5-10 from the stock cooler. NOT A GOOD COOLeR.

bilalnuman submitter 13 Builds 2 points 49 months ago

You are right, there was so temperature difference, but it is a lot quieter than the stock cooler.

the_walker_lives 1 Build 1 point 49 months ago

Once I did get the one cooler up and running, I did notice it was a lot quieter, but by then I had already ordered an Enermax ETS-T40-TB, which dropped my temps down to 30 C idle, 55 Full load on my i7 4790k.

andrewmorano 1 point 45 months ago

just saying, you could've gotten a higher speed in ram for not that much more. im using some of the same parts as you and i have 1866 DDR3 8GB Ram

Geode1010 2 Builds 1 point 45 months ago

That hybrid hhd is a 5400rpm, not a normal 7200rpm. That's why it's slow.

Sebas152286 1 point 41 months ago

Is the cpu good for gaming ?? And is it worth it to buy ?

bilalnuman submitter 13 Builds 1 point 41 months ago

i Wouldn't recommend it for gaming, but i bought it for less than £40 and its great for just normal web browsing and media.

ReVa 2 Builds 1 point 40 months ago

In the 7th pic, I see your right monitor is hooked up to a CCTV system. Are you running it using a DVR?

bilalnuman submitter 13 Builds 1 point 40 months ago

Yeah you can just about see it on top right corner.

Charcoal_ 1 point 38 months ago

Hey? I'm building a Night Fury soon! http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/p/9jyWHx

zing523 1 point 34 months ago

You should unlock the extra two cores on that CPU
