Thanks for the offer but I am stepping away from gaming as a whole. Besides for the replacement parts that I would like to get, I will not be doing anything else with PC building or gaming so I would prefer cash offers.

Late to the post but... I was looking for a thread exactly like this. I just bought a c7 for a itx build I am going to do but decided to put it in my big build that I had a 212 Evo in. I was expecting slightly higher temps but weirdly enough the temps are slightly lower.

This is slightly over budget but it gives you quality parts that you can further upgrade. The Cooler Master Silencio is a cheap clean looking case that matches that simple design. The i3 surprisingly benches relatively well in gaming and with the right graphics card can easily run games at 60 fps 1080p. The 460 4gb should have no problem running non-graphic intensive games at 60 frames. The motherboard is a decently nice MSI one with 4 ram slots which will give you room to add on later from the current 8gb. Could not really fit an SSD for the budget. The monitor I chose you could change, but it is an IPS so the display will look very nice. PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant

Haha funny story actually. I was trying to sell the 970 and I told someone to bring me the card that was in my pc. They yanked it out and literally pulled the PCIe slot out of the mother board. So I only have that one PCIe and the graphics card ran the same as I remember. I didn't see why it wouldn't because they are both the same thing.

If you want to save money on the operating system, I believe that you can download it onto a USB drive and then put it on that way. Eventually you will have to buy a key but it can help so you don't have to sacrifice any parts for the OS. Trial of Win 10 lasts forever but it will give you an annoying popup every once in a while.

You have a big budget and alot of money was going to waste. The ram was not even supported on your mobo and was a waste of money in general. I understand having Corsair Dominator as a "status" but I did change to 32gb because unless you are doing hardcore stuff, it is not needed.

Option 1: Lots of SSD This come under $2800 and you get lots of the best storage out there. No annoying buzzing noise ever because there are no moving parts. Also changed the power supply on this build to a better one. PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant

Option 2: 1080 SLI. Comes a bit over $2800. I changed the storage to SSD and an HDD, took off the Dominator and added Vengeance. Edit: forgot about this but you may need a bigger PSU for this choice as those Strix's suck 315 watts a piece. PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant

Comment reply on Forum Topic "First PC build Looking to trip out on some VR"

  • 46 months ago

I think he means that your parts are low end and a gtx 1070 is not low end so they do not fit together. This build is perfectly fine and I can not find a reason why the 1070 would be bad. I do not know why he recommended a gtx 970 because I see no sign of any specific resolution for a monitor but I do see VR and gtx 1070 greatly outperforms the 970 in VR. No more money is needed to take advantage if the 1070. Edit: Just a side note, the gtx 1070s I have seen right now have all been over $400. So $380 is most likely not going to happen until a couple months.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "First PC and really pricey."

I see you say it is really pricey and I assume that price makes you uncomfortable. I think you are under and over estimating some of the parts abilities. Firstly to take down the price and really not hurt performance too bad, I would get an i5 6600k. It is perfect for gaming as most games can not take advantage of hyper threading. My opinion on the gtx 1080 vs gtx 1070: tight on money,buy the 1070. It will do you very good and perhaps all you need. Got a fat wallet, buy the 1080. It may be unnecessary but at least you can brag and have a physiological feeling of superiority towards virtual opponents.

Everything looks good to me but I don't think it will be too long before 1080s become widely available or if it is I still don't think it would be worth buying a 980 ti unless you have some use for it after. If I were you I would just wait and not get a place holder.

If you get a new monitor in 2k or 4k, definitely go with a 1070. I have a 2k monitor and I am buying a gtx 1080 because I want to future proof my build for a little while and I want to show that thing off.

Everyone here is saying go Pascal here but, you have a 1080p resolution monitor. A gtx 970 is plenty enough for 1080p gaming and if you can get a cheap one for low $200s it might be better on your wallet. I wouldn't recommend buying a 980 ti because the 1070 will be $380 and most people right now are trying to unload there 980 tis for around $400. Though if your wallet isn't a problem, go with a gtx 1070 just do not buy the reference card.

This looks great and if you get that GPU you will be able to play everything at 1440p + 60 fps. Right now I use a 970 and I can play most games at 1440p (planning to get a 1080 or 1070). It might just be me but I just like Western Digital HDDs so much better than Seagate. It seems like many people receive faulty drives but I have no data to back that.

All good parts. If you do not want to use the stock CPU fan there is a low lying Noctua that will fit in this case. https://pcpartpicker.com/part/noctua-cpu-cooler-nhl9i , but the stock fan will work too. Also im not sure if this psu comes with short cables but it is good to have the short cables for a small case like this.

Im guessing it will be releasing sometime near summer 2016. Now for the computer itself. I changed the CPU cooler to a NZXT liquid cooler, cools better, looks cooler, matches the look and brand of case. Your motherboard is compatible with an m.2 SSD so I added the Samsung Pro 950. Now it does have only 256gb for about the same price but the read and write speeds and very much higher. The 512gb will cost around $300 if you are interested. I did not change the video card just because by the time you get the money pascal could be out and I imagine it will about the same price if not alittle more expensive than the 980ti.

If you are willing to wait a long time, I would recommend waiting for a NVIDIA pascal GPU. It is supposed to be releasing mid 2016 and is much more powerful than the current Nvidias. Look it up on google if you have any questions.

I changed up a lot of the original build. It is about $100 over the original build but it will be a better. The Noctua fan and the Samsung SDD are completely optional as this case already comes with a fan and you are buying 7200rpm storage. I added these because the fan is pretty quite for the amount of air it moves and the SSD will help you boot up faster and open any applications much faster. The 7200rpm is great for storing all the other files you have. The CPU is a bit more expensive but the onboard graphics card is very good, it is skyline, the speed is great. I saw you wanted a small business computer so I changed the case to a Mini ITX very sharp clean looking case that you can put an optical drive in. I had to put a Mini ITX motherboard but it is a nice one but kinda pricey but I wanted it to support Skylake. Memory I thought 8gbs DDR4 would do you better and for about $20 more I think it is a great. Power Supply just something Gold certified but still cheap. Not I took off the Windows 10 because I believe, though I've never done it, that you can install in free on a USB. Though you will need to buy a product key but that can be held off till later.
