This is primarily a gaming rig. I also use it for basic web browsing, word processing etc. It's my main computer so I do pretty much everything on it.
I think you couldve done more for the money. Cool build tough.
Thanks :) The prices aren't indicative of what I paid though, this build is a year old and I'm in NZ where prices are... different
I don't mean to be one of those people, but for the price you paid for the 670 4gb, you could have spent a few more dollars and got a 770 4gb edition. Or spent less and got an AMD r9 280x 3gb for less. But it's your computer.
Do like the build though. Also love how you have all of your snacks right there in front of you ;)
Ha snacks are important for gaming! I should point out that this build is now a year old. the prices are not what I paid and the GTX 700 range had not yet been released.
this build would max out anygame u play
Holy $#!7 that's unbeatable for the money.
some of the stuff you bought is uneccesary like the mobo and case
Not bad :) I do really like my case though
Daaaaamn, but i like to get balanced out if i have a 780 ti i would obviously be able to afford a better cpu cooler XD even tho thats one of the best "bank for the buck" coolers
I like this build :)
Nice build! Though maybe it wasn't necessary to have that much storage, you probably could've put that towards more GPU strength. Then again, I don't really know the specifics of what you built this for, maybe you need it for movies/music and such. I love those Corsair cases, they look cool, come with fan filters, and have great cable management in them.
The corsair cases are amazing, that's why I bought it. I reckon it's worth it for the extra cost.
gtx 770 or r9 290 woulda been better choice
Now perhaps, but when I built this rig they hadn't even been released yet. I'm a touch late in publishing this :)
You way overpaid for that GPU. A 770 or if you would want to go AMD an R9 290 would do wayyy better for the money than a 670, a card that's a generation old.
Why two SSD instead of a single 250gb?
Also mobo seems like a bit of overkill. Should've been a flag when you paid less for your CPU :X
So by your estimation, he should have gone with Mwave's price and overpaid for the CPU by $100 in order to be able to use the MB he chose? Equivalent financial advice "Yes sir, best way to make money in blue chips is to buy high and then sell very low!". :)
I do agree that a single 250G could have been better, assuming it met his pricing criteria.
For some reason I thought it would be a good idea to have two SSD's raided. Now it seems a touch unnecessary and I just use one. One works perfectly well as all I put on it is the OS and a few programs.
Perhaps you're right about the motherboard, but I don't regret my decision. It looks badass and it has some sweet features.
you dont really need a OC board though for gaming. u could have saved a hundred dollars and went for a better gpu also u overspent on the case too
I believe the case was worth the extra cost. It's solid, was easy to build in and looks amazing. The board may be overkill but hey, futureproofing right? :p
don't forget to put quotation marks on "future proofing" :P
