Did you build it yet? I'm at the beginning of this video so idk if you mention a specific day.
I'd say for gaming 16gb is the minimum. You can always get away with 8 but 16 is just a better deal usually and will make almost every game better to use.
I'll post it when I build it for sure. Probably gonna be around the end of May.
Cool, I think that's what I'm going to do when I finally build mine. That's the part I'm dreading. I've seen some people say it's hard and stressful and others say it's easy and took less than 30 minutes. So let's hope i get lucky and get a nice and simple BIOS
Still not as bad as Australia lmao
As a first time builder, how difficult was it for you to get the OS up and running?
Depending where you got the Mobo I'm sure you could've got a refund and basically get it for free if the box said it came with all the cables but didn't (especially if it's a refurbed mobo)
Yeah sounds like I'm gonna get the GTX 980 since it's on the higher end of my budget and it'll last me long enough to save up for a newer GPU when it's available.
Still, might as well get it if you can afford it for future proofing
A month? Get on my level. I've been building and revising for 2 years lmao. Jk nice build. Is that GPU good? I'm thinking of the same one for my build since it can handle VR when I get into that
The fact that your dad plays Fallout and Borderlands just shows how good he raised you lmao
Do you actually use the mic on that headset? Every time I've used that it sucked..... then again I'm obsessed with audio and use an AT2035 lol
Dang you need a bigger desk lol. Nice tho. Edit: Nevermind I see the other pics. But I agree with the open box thing with micro center, best deals ever especially for monitors or something like that
This is basically the build I'm planning on, GTX970, i7-4790k. Planning on streaming a bit again. Btw I think for youtube if you record at 720p60fps it looks way better but that's my opinion.
Oh okay, maybe he plans on trying to live stream or make videos?
Why would that be a bad thing?
I'd say anything under $1,000 is a budget build. But yeah a more reasonable budget build is about the cost of a new console so like $500-600.
I hate red and black PCs but this thing looks badass. Nice job, and I've never seen one like it with the plexiglass "case"
Thanks for the CPU cooler suggestion, I will definitely use that since it goes with the color theme a little better as it's white. The reason I had the other one is because everyone said it was super quiet which is important to me since my PC will be sitting near my desk/mic.
and I'm definitely going to go with a free upgrade to windows 10 bc I own windows 8.1 so that takes away $85
Yeah the optical drive is most likely gonna get dropped. I'm still trying to decide whether or not I'm gonna OC which is why I haven't dropped the 4790k yet. The RAM I'm definitely going to be getting cheaper where I can find it. I'm not going to be paying for it (parents getting it as a graduating gift) so I want to make sure I can get a good setup that won't have to be upgraded for at least 5 years. But I am definitely considering switching the CPU. As for the case it's going to be pretty close to my desk/mic so I want to make sure it's quiet and this case seems really good with all the features and how big it is, so I want to try and keep that. But thanks for the input!
Thanks, yeah I've been looking around for the past year or two learning as much as I can
He'll be playing by the age of 4 with that thing
I thought you weren't supposed to be grounded (to Earth level) when assembling the mobo....
Would you put it on the actual box when assembling the mobo? I've been researching and watching people build PCs for at least 3 years now and I'm planning on buying the parts soon, I just need to make sure I don't f anything up.
A case is almost not even important when it comes to a somewhat limited budget build.
