Description

EDIT: I swapped the molex out for the PCI-E cables, good thing my PSU came with four :) Thanks for telling me guys! the last thing I would want is for my brand new PC to start smoking. -Added two pics with the updated cables

3D Mark test on Fire Strike. http://www.3dmark.com/3dm/5033748? I only have the demo so that's the most intensive one I could do.

** This is my first build ever, I've been saving up for awhile to get a new system so I thought I'd get something good. I wanted to be able to play all of the newest games on max settings without any problems, and this build delivers! My cousin helped me quite a bit with what all the numbers on everything meant, but I picked everything out except the ram. Everything's finally here so its 100% complete! Although I'm sure I'll be adding stuff like sleeving (Oh boy..) and more drives for dual booting different Operating Systems. I gotta say I'm in love with this PC

I just finished putting in the final piece today (Asus PCE-AC68 wifi) and DAMN this card is fast for wifi. I'm getting around 80-90mbps down constantly and 5 bars signal (up from 10-20mbps with my old card!!) in my basement with the router up two floors and on the other side of the house! (I have charter so the max speed is somewhere around 100mbps, I can't wait till we have some fiber-optics **** in my area.) - and yeah I used A speaker magnet to mount the Antenna for the asus PCe card on my wall :) check it out in the pictures!

Also these video cards are amazing, I've been playing Far Cry 4 like crazy on max settings and 120hz frame rate with no problems and its beautiful! I've tried a bunch of other new games too and haven't had any problems maxing everything out. I love it. God you should of seen my old PC. Could barley handle minecraft with fancy graphics enabled.

Also for the money the speakers I got are really great! The subwoofer can go loud as *#&$. I also bought a cable splitter and added my two old creative speakers for better surround sound.

Anyways what do you guys think of it? :) If you have any questions ask away!

O.O And I'm over here, surviving on .80 Mbps up & .30 Mbps down :'(

/me goes and sobs in a corner "It's not fair I tell you! It's not fair"

On the subject of the build, nice components, definitely a good build :)

I'll be adding stuff like sleeving (Oh boy..)

For sure :D Gotta love those ketchup and mustard cables!

AT&T DSL :P We pay $36 a month (I think) for that crap service. Technically we are getting 100 Kb/s, but our very old router only sends through ~.85 Kb/s max unless you're on Ethernet.

Molex to 6 pin??? Bleh... You should replace those immediately... They're known to melt down and start fires... Doesn't your PSU have enough 6 pins lol. Nice build nonetheless

the gpu came with those cables, i just added the splitters (yellow and red cables) because it woulda taken 8 molex connections. the pcie cables that came with my power supply had an extra connection poece hangng off so i didnt think they would work.

They will work. The extra piece is out of the way for a reason.

Sweet rig ! Glad you changed those adapters not only do they look better but there is a much lower chance of having a 780t and 970 barbecue. That case is a monster. There are times I looks at it and go ooh that's nice and others I feel I like the 760t much better. Either way with that i7 and 2x970 you should be able to crush just about whatever play!

I have 4 PCI-E cables, but they are the 6+2pin ones, would those work? the GPUS need two 6 pin connections

Those are 6 pin pci-e cables with a 2 pin pci-e attached incase the need of an 8 pin.
