My buddy made this build for me. I'm clueless when it comes to all of this.

I'm really just looking for confirmations that this is a good build and not a piece of junk.

Not really worried about price. Just wanted a BEAST PC that makes games look beautiful and can handle simple work programs.

I could do waay better mate... I just need more info. What exactly is your budget budget? Under 2.5k? Hell i can even put in a triple monitor setup. Give more specifications as to what you want. You want to play at max settings? Programming? Anything. Just tell me. And ill build you one. Help me help you mate

Getting me excited over here!

I want to keep the budget around $2,000. I'm willing to go up to $2,300 if you have some crazy good ideas.

I'll be using the PC for gaming and basic work programs. I want it to run games like a BEAST. I'll also likely stream over Twitch.

Triple monitor setup sounds incredible but my desk can really only fit one monitor.

Youll be amazed. You have any questions feel free to ask mate.

You can always get a triple monitor mount. But its up to you. Ill warn you though, if you start using triple monitors or even duo, there is no going back to one. Heres the improved build. Even cheaper mate.

Does this essentially do the same thing as the one I posted but for a cheaper price? Or is it better and cheaper?

Also, please educate me.... When you say keep in mind this is a gaming PC, what am I restricted to?

A gaming PC can do almost anything, and with that CPU, running programs like Autodesk won't be much of a problem. This PC is better suited for gaming than rendering in programs like Autodesk and Photoshop. If you don't use either of those programs, or you do but not extensively, then you're perfectly fine. This PC is cheaper, and slightly better.

The case has no side panel window and I think he would want that, something like the Phanteks eclipse or s340 is a better option

Went with the SCYTHE FUMA because it has the potential for a really high Overclocking.

The 4k monitor is an added bonus because the games will look a lot better.

You say potential for really high over clocking. Does that mean that it over clocks no matter what with the chance of insanely high overclocking?

Looks awesome regardless.

Dont get a 3-way SLI especially if youre new to this. Having duo or tri SLI CAN cause problems and a lot of games dont support those. As for monitors 60hz usually have better coloring effects since the panels are different than 144hz. My build theres room for a better monitor. What games will you be playing? Fps games 144hz is best.

I probably won't be playing FPS games on PC.

Check my cheaper build. Upgrade the monitor and thats about it. Theres builds here with more than one gpu (graphics card) also called 2 way SLI/3 way SLI. Thetre overkill and could cause problems.

  • 37 months ago
  • 1 point

The Fuma is better than all 120MM/140MM AIO coolers and all other HSF's/"air coolers"and the only 240MM cooler that is better than it is the EK Preadtor 240 which means it is quiet a beefy cooler and I can confirm its great myself. You most likely will be limited by the CPU with how far you can overclock.

Also 3 way crossfire is a horrible idea.

  • 37 months ago

Yeah, yeah it's pretty terrible. But, I made an updated Black/Blue Build NOT with 3 way Crossfire, but 2 Way SLI. (Or, I can just put a 1 $850 card in there.)

The Nex isn't a good PSU, The Evo 850 is of bad value. 32GB of RAM is a complete waste. Why two HDD's instead of something like a 2TB Barracuda. Zero point in going X99 for gaming build.

It has a CPU cooler with a bang for your buck that can't be beat. A overclocked i5 would be better than a i7 6700 and even slightly better than a i7 6700K at stock speeds. It has a decent all around board. It has a 1.1TB SSD along wit ha 2TB HDD. It has a much cheaper GPU model that is just as good. It has a much much better case. I included a 1440P monitor too.

That black HDD is of awful value, no point in a $90 wifi adapter. That SSD is of **** value. No need for a 850 watt PSU. I'm doubting you actually need a optical drive. Too much for that RAM. You have a Z170 motherboard but a locked CPU so I am confused if you want to overclock or not. The 200R is crap for that price. What is this build for? Are you using mail in rebates?
