Description

This is my gaming machine that is used for minor video editing. It runs pretty much any game at max setting 1080p 60 fps and is VR ready. it also is easily up-gradable both in processing power and in gaming power... it was a build that i wanted to have everything and look sweet doing it.

is that an led screen in the front of the case?... pretty high-tech!

though... personally if I were to go big and also do video editing, I would have def gone with a i7 for the HT or a X99 system. they aren't much more these days, still a rocking nice build! :) +1

The mobo heatsinks and RAM heatsinks look brown.

Do you mean the royal 'we'? Or was there a secret party to this build?!

Nice build, having a 3TB harddrive is so roomy. Oculus can't show up soon enough!

Why do we have to buy an OS if we just do free updates later on?

For your case, what is the difference between microATX and just ATX and the other kinds?

Did you have to add on the backplate for that 970? I'm thinking about getting it since I love EVGA but I won't go without a backplate.

Doode.. GPU is way too overpriced

Whether it's overpriced or not depends on where in the world you are. In Canadian dollars that is a pretty average price right now. $500 CAD for a GTX 970 is not unusual.

Yeah, I'm saying get an R9 390. Noticeably less money (~$30-60 USD less than a 970) and faster in almost every scenario

I would agree, but it's really only faster in 1440p. NVIDIA is kinda sketchy but the difference between the R9 390 and GTX 970 is really up to personal preference, though the 8 GB of VRAM is appealing.

IMO to be competitive, the 970 should be $275 USD because the 390 does still outperform it in 99% of all programs in 1080p and everything noticeably in QHD and 4K. The 970 is more like the 380X.

Source to this? I support AMD too but in 1080p it really depends on the program/game you are running, especially since most games nowadays are optimized towards NVIDIA. The 390 is not at all relevant at above 1440p. I really want to see where you got this info from.

that GPU is priced at where it's supposed to be. That is the FTW edition. FTW/Classifieds are always more than the SC or SSC editions. The SSC goes for $329 at Micro Center, that's the price it's pretty much been at. The FTW slightly more than that so $350 is about right for that edition.

dude. 350 for a 970 is overpriced. you could get 390X for 350. the GTX 970 should be around 300 to 310 or less. I got my MSI gaming one for 290 on sale :)

A 390 is faster than a 970 in 99% of all scenarios and as fast as a 980 in QHD and 4K. The 390X is above the 980 in all scenarios. A 970 costing $275 would make sense.

The 390X is above the 980

all scenarios

Power consumption is still a thing.

I dont know why i got bumped down? I never said taht the 390 is faster. it is fact about the same speed as a 970. Ive done my research. I just know that a GTX 970 for 350 isnt the best deal since the 390x ( for 350) outperforms the 970. GTX 970 VS GTX 980 VS R9 390X

Okay, I am talking about real time performance, not temps/power/noise (although I have experienced that it isn't far off)

Less than 100W difference last time I checked, and it would take many years to actually make your money's worth, by the time in which you will have upgraded to a new card.

JayzTwoCents has a video regarding AMD/Intel CPUs, but the same applies to the NVIDIA/AMD part.

That's what I paid with like a $30 rebate dude. It's worth it.

The 970 should be going for $275 to be reasonable, and $300-$310 (all USD) for the FTW. Considering a Gigabyte SOC 390 is as good as a Classified.
