Basically, it's a workstation that I'll use for numerous tasks. It also has a 750ti that I'll use to do some light gaming.
I realized that. I don't need much more cooling and I am going to take off the sticker and fix the cable so that it looks better. Also, I see what you mean for aesthetics based build. Sure, I could've gone all out with all these things to make it look super nice, but (in my opinion) there's a limit on how much I can spend on these things considering the actual power of the build.
So when I say aesthetics based build, try to think more color-coordinated build. Anyways, thank you for the critique.
In response to a few comments: I got a 750ti because I honestly don't need any more gpu power right now. But if I do decide to do a lot of gaming, I'll probably upgrade to a more powerful gpu. For PSU: Yeah, I know. I probably will change PSU's if I need the horsepower.
I noticed too. Next time, capitalize your i's.
Does this have enough dedicwated wam to run my minecraft servwer?
everybody up vote these comments ^^
I'm sorry but computer doesn't start with a 't'.
Honestly, I think it looks pretty good. I looked and the case will fit the GPU just fine. What resolution are you going to be playing at.
The SSD is overkill. Just get a 2.5" from samsung and you'll be fine. Also, I'm not sure if you really need 16GB of RAM. Maybe start with a single 8GB stick and then upgrade later.
go for 6700k and dual 980tis. youre wasting a ton of money right now.
have you considered a 4gb gpu?
If you've already bought them, just stay with them and get a different model next time you upgrade.
sorry I mean this: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/v8b4rH
Just add stuff to this and remember a cooler: http://pcpartpicker.com/parts/partlist/
actually thats a good idea you really should go AMD if you're getting a $120 CPU
go for an fx8320e and overclock!
For the drive bays, see how many you have. If there are 2 sets of 3.5" drive bays, you could move the middle bay and be fine. For r9 390 vs gtx 970, I'd go with whatever fits you the best. If you want less power consumption, choose the 970. But if you want better performance and you want to be amazing and support AMD, then go with the r9 390.
I have a 960 and a SLI-capable processor. Do you think that adding another 960 would be a good upgrade path in the future or not?
Great build. Its a great budget workstation even if you aren't going to take it on the go!
That build looks great. I love that case except for that the window is so small. If you want, you could try putting a piece of clear acryllic as a side panel like ivan_lazarov did in his build: http://pcpartpicker.com/b/MqvV3C
Lol for my build I'm gonna get that cooler even though I'm getting a Xeon (non oc'able)
get an athlon x4 860k instead of that pentium. Also, there's a different pair of G.Skill Ripjaws for $29.99. That GPU seems overpriced considering that you can get the MSI GTX 960 2GD5T OC for $65
or maybe a 750 ti
I'd suggest looking at the MSI GTX 960 2GD5T OC or the XFX R7 370 Double Dissipation to save you some money.
after fixing stuff, I'd go for the first build since the 5930k is a beast.
for SSD's, just run two 250g Samsung 850 Evo's in RAID 0.
Go for a case in the $70-100 price range. It'll save you alot. Also, do you really need a 80+ Platinum PSU?
heres a good, cheap 32gb kit. http://pcpartpicker.com/part/gskill-memory-f43200c16q32gvkb
try to go for an external dac. I suggest waiting until the Fiio E10k comes back on Massdrop: https://www.massdrop.com/buy/fiio-e10k-usb-dac-and-headphone-amplifier
oh, and you don't really need to spend that much on a case. Try something from the $70-100 pricepoint
Add a Seagate Barracuda 3tb for games, why 16GB of ram? Also, if you want a 2,000 build, you can get an i7-4790k with 980ti SLI, but it won't include peripherals or anything. Here: http://pcpartpicker.com/user/JukeboxGamer/saved/L4Yscf
Nice. I don't really agree on the case or psu choices though.
the stuff below looks good
Sorry one last thing. HyperX fury RAM is like $2 and its faster (DDR3-1866). Go for that.
Also, 23.8" monitors are like $100 less, so if you don't mind getting a slightly higher pixel density and a 1.2" smaller screen, you can save there.
Looks pretty good. Do you really need a 500GB SSD? Also, I think that the AZIO MGK1 Keyboard is only $60, so you can go for that if you want mechanical.
Unless you plan to crossfire later on, you can just stick with a 4690k/6600k and 8GB oF RAM
no. If you want a low end processor, don't go with a pentium, but with the athlon instead. Anyways, for a 960, I'd suggest an fx-6300 or an i3. Your PSU has too much wattage and you should probably go for a cheaper case. If I were you, I'd go with something like fourdegrees' build. Some modifications I would make would be switching to a solid z97 board for future upgrade and making it microatx and going with the Cooler Master N200, a solid mATX case.
also, this build seems a bit overkill. You only need 8GB of RAM, and you don't need an i7 if its not SLI. In general, you can save alot by cutting down extra things that you don't need.
well yea. The 6700k vs 5820k difference isn't much, and z170 will probably be cheaper with ram, mobo, ect.
Minecraft runs great on APU's/Integrated Graphics. Here's an AMD APU build, if it'll help. http://pcpartpicker.com/p/3qbNrH
It's the perfect build for Minecraft and some other games its at $325.
Basically for a good pair of open back headphones and get a cheap lav mic. That'll be better than most gaming headsets out there.
250gb is perfect. 128gb would be enough, but I hear that the extra space really makes a difference.
sure you want that 3.5gb of vram
maybe something like this http://pcpartpicker.com/p/LBdY3C
I think it looks solid
Those are both easy to run games. Minecraft easily runs 60+ fps on integrated graphics, and you can get 60fps on basically any gpu for csgo. The build you made will run fairly intensive games really well at 1080p and ok at 1440p. I would recommend going with an i3 4170 and a 750ti. Make sure that you get solid components so that you can upgrade a ton.
By the way, you can get the 850 evo a tiny bit cheaper if you want. I think its free shipping for both as long and you're in the US. https://www.massdrop.com/buy/samsung-850-evo-250gb-2-5-inch-sata-iii-ssd
