Decent 4k setuup

The rig purpose is primarily for gaming on 4k

Nice, love seeing air coolers! +1

Apart form that SSD, this looks great!

milesknight 2 Builds 2 points 43 months ago

whats so bad about the ssd

tiny_voices 4 Builds 1 point 43 months ago

It is the worst one you can buy. It uses a junk controller and is known to be slower than a standard HDD after you use it for a bit and get some data on it.

oh, had no idea thank for that tip

tiny_voices 4 Builds 2 points 43 months ago

No problem!

This is truth, they pulled the plug on it.

mikenuve submitter 1 Build 2 points 43 months ago

lol ssd killed it huh?, i told you its kinda on the budget aspect lmfao

tiny_voices 4 Builds 1 point 43 months ago

But for like $5 more you should have had a substantially better SSD that won't be as slow as a HDD in 6 months.

4k with dual 970s? Experienced any dropouts yet?

mikenuve submitter 1 Build 2 points 43 months ago

what u mean with dropouts mang?

philphaser 12 Builds 1 point 43 months ago

Stutters. Know to happen when the 970 touches it's 32-bit-memory-controlled 0.5GB VRam; multiplied in SLI.

AlexDimGR 2 points 43 months ago

dont want to be rude but you should of gotten 980ti instead of two 970's

somawhite402 2 points 43 months ago

I'm guessing that was because it was put together over 5 months. I've done the same thing myself before.

mikenuve submitter 1 Build 2 points 43 months ago

i wanted that, but for me the sli setup looks more appealing. and PS am not tryna go higher, cant afford two 980tis lmfao

AlexDimGR 1 point 43 months ago

looks above all :) i like the way you think

mikenuve submitter 1 Build 2 points 43 months ago

yea dude, im spending that ton of money might as well make it look good

vekspec 3 Builds 1 point 43 months ago

Definitely 980 Ti if he just built it, but if you already have a 970 or two, no point in switching to a 980 Ti because most likely you'd be loosing money and they are comparable in performance (SLI 970). plus for some reason, if you have a 144hz monitor, you can only hit that 144 fps in SLI, not a single card.

mikenuve submitter 1 Build 2 points 43 months ago

yep, at first only had a single 970. i just recently upgraded to the 2nd one

Hello fellow Filipino! Looks great! How's the 4k gaming going?

mikenuve submitter 1 Build 2 points 43 months ago

its good bra, just waiting on that 4k panel :)

MannyCalavera 1 point 43 months ago

if you didnt buy / sold cpu cooler and paste, you could fit 980ti in there but ok dx12 wil hopefully make sli scale better

mikenuve submitter 1 Build 2 points 43 months ago

actually got the cooler and the paster for a lot cheaper, some of them are bought here locally in the Philippines.

kevinwargo 1 point 43 months ago

Love the blue LED's with the white case! +1How has that case held up for cable management? Was thinking about getting that case, would you recommend that case?

ROG2000_PCs 1 point 43 months ago

This is not budget 4K

Budget 4K costs $700 (FX6300, R9 390, 8GB DDR3)

Either way, it's a decent build.

asyed862 2 points 43 months ago

A budget is the amount of money someone is willing to spend. And besides, a 390 and an FX 6300 can barely play at 1440p.

ROG2000_PCs 1 point 43 months ago

Not true. I have a 290, i7 3770K, 8GB RAM and get FSX on max settings to run at around 40FPS. The FX-6300 is a step down, but will still be able to handle it, along with the fact that the 390 is great for 4K

But saying "BUDGET 4K" indicates that it is 4K on a low budget; I don't consider $2K a low budget. But hey, why should anyone, including me, give 2 ***** if the PC is good and can easily outperform a console? Just saying that I find his title quite deceiving.

mikenuve submitter 1 Build 1 point 43 months ago

my bad haha, lemme correct that. decent 4k set up :)

ROG2000_PCs 1 point 43 months ago

Okay, thanks! Because it is a good 4K setup. I have a 4K setup which costs less than this but probably doesn't perform nearly as well as 970 SLI

ROG2000_PCs 1 point 43 months ago

http://pcpartpicker.com/p/nW4cD3 is a list I came up with the capability to play most games in 4K. This is based off experience and research.

Tru dat. My friend who owns Skunkworks, Jr. (check in my saved part lists) has about 200+ mods and 4K/8K texture packs, and he averages around 80 FPS with Hairworks on, not a ton for a $7K PC

[comment deleted by staff]
ROG2000_PCs 1 point 43 months ago

Not really. My 4K monitor (lol a TV) was under $400 and the PC is around $1500. I have a higher end PC, but you could do decent 4K gaming with the same display I have for around the entry price of an iMac... DOWN GOES APPLE LOL

mikenuve submitter 1 Build 1 point 43 months ago

actually i though about that too but i kinda went for the looks and the little horsepower advantage of the sli set up :)

philphaser 12 Builds 1 point 43 months ago

Gold certified tier 2. Nothing wrong with that. Just can't count that look-argument in connection with a S340. ; ) For the looks you should've gone with a HX/HXi to compliment the blue Gigabyte Logo, but since you don't see it anyways...

mikenuve submitter 1 Build 2 points 43 months ago

yep, tier 2 is not that bad hehe, since i dont even OC that hardcore :)
