I hate it when people do that. It's distracting, especially when the person is near you. Phone use during movies should definitely be banned if it isn't already.

Definitely over priced. That looks like a membrane keyboard with a bad mouse being sold for the price of a Corsair K70 RGB.

One of the most confusing concepts for me is that space is almost completely flat and is also three dimensional.

Nice build. Welcome back to the world of PC gaming and building. How do you like that K70 keyboard? Also, more pictures maybe?
+1 for an all around solid build

Yes. Currently, for most things, AMD is just not as good as Intel. That could change with Zen, but not yet.

MSI Z170 Gaming M5 or Asus Z170-A would be my choices for that price range.

Yes there are great 900 series cards, but games will get more intensive, and new cards that are more powerful will be needed to power 1080p ultra gaming. Also, these will have lower power consumption because of the die shrink, which is good. So it's not pointless to make new cards for 1080p.

Ok I have a couple suggestions for you:
1. Drop the CPU cooler, you don't have an unlocked processor, so it comes with its own cooler which will be fine for you.
2. SSD is overpriced. Try something like this instead. 3. You can drop the Z97 motherboard since you can't overclock with that CPU and get an H97 board.
4. Finally, that PSU should be ok, but something like a 550 watt EVGA G2 would be more reliable.

Not sure about the GPU. Maybe a GTX 950?
I hope none of this is too expensive, its hard for me to figure out the Australian prices.

Recommendations for your version: Drop the thermal paste, get an EVGA G2 550 watt PSU, and get a different SSD (that model of Kingston SSD is bad).
Other than those things, it looks good.

You can never have a computer that's too cool. At least not with consumer available cooling.

Looks pretty good. Spend about the same amount for an EVGA G2 550 watt PSU though. It's more reliable, and you don't need the 650 watts in this build.

Yeah. Glad I could help.

Looks good to me. Although an EVGA G2 or P2 PSU would be better

Comment reply on Forum Topic "First ever build"

I would recommend an NZXT S340 instead of the case you have. Other than that, looks pretty good.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Friend built this, just need second opinions"

  • 38 months ago

You shouldn't need any more than 550 watts in that build, and 700 is overkill I think. I recommended the EVGA G2 550 watt for its reliability. You could go with the EVGA G2 650 watt if you are worried about the wattage.

Chillsabre gives good advice above. And you don't need a soundcard, motherboards have them built in.

I hope he is. I enjoyed building it. I'm still saving up for my build, so this was my first time really building a computer. Now I'm looking for ways to build for other friends and family.

Thanks for the upvote. Glad you liked the build.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Which is better"

Number 1

Better GPU
Faster CPU

Although Number 2 does have a slightly better PSU and motherboard, benefits of #1 outweigh the cons, I think.

Get an EVGA G2 550w PSU. You won't need more than that and it's more reliable.

Nice build. How do you like the NZXT CAM software?
I also agree that this site is the best. I'm starting to get addicted to it.

+1 for using the Manta, not too many builds with it yet

I'm sure that they will have some directed towards 1080p. That's still a big market that they won't skip out on if they are smart.

Solid build. That 980ti will be more than enough for 1080p.

Just so you know, the OEM version of Windows can't be moved between motherboards, so if you plan to upgrade at any point I would buy the retail version. https://pcpartpicker.com/part/microsoft-os-kw900016
