seethes I forgot to mention that sales tax applies to online purchases where my friend and I live. I've tried to make it Intel build but not without jacking up the price drastically.
Yeah! Raptor M4x.
Thanks for feedback, btw.
Hmm. Well, as I said it was on sale for $70 and 2133 Ares kit was sold out.
I'm well aware of this and I don't care. I was using XP up til mid December so...
It's amazing. DPI buttons are a great addition.
It was on sale for $70 and I've seen benchmarks that say 1866 is sorta the sweet when it comes to frequency.
I think I'll do that next time I open my case. Thanks for the feedback.
How does one even do that; rebuilding your PC? And why?
I don't see any visible marks or damage.
Uhhh, if you rebuilt the build list that's great but as you can see, I've bought the case, video card and CPU cooler already along with headphones, a mouse and a buttload of fands.
8Gb is more than enough for gaming. Just go with 2 sticks of 4GB.
3 monitors on a single 760. Is that a thing people should be doing?
Well, someone certainly showers in gold. JK, great build, though.
I've heard the Gigabyte board is better for overclocking.
Hmm. Then I might use the MSI Gaming in my build. It's that or the Gigabyte 970-UD3P.
Did you have update the BIOS before you could use the 8320E?
Did you have to update the BIOS on that board?
'Oly balls, that's a lot of power.
+1 for the 2600K.
I have a beef with Samsung plus I'm indifferent toward SSDs. And the budget doesn't allow for an HDD/SSD combo.
Hmm, might want to change the PSU.
I'd recommend a SeaSonic 750KM or a Cooler Master VSM 750 as the Corsair RM uses an OEM who isn't among the best.
And that PSU isn't the best. I would forgo the disc drive and use that money for a better PSU.
An OC depends on the CPU, the cooler and the mobo as they are major OC factors. I made some tweaks to your build but go to the forums if you want more opinions. http://pcpartpicker.com/p/F8yKNG Despite the the G32 being able to overclock, its two cores are a limiting factor. Changed the mobo as ASRock isn't all that reputable. Changed the RAM and SSD (although I highly recommend starting with HDD first) to two more well-known and reputable manufacturers. 770 is still an excellent card, even with the 970 out and the power supply to SeaSonic because it's SeaSonic and SeaSonic is the best PSU manufacturer hands down. And if you want to change your parents minds about video games, you need to introduce them to Extra Credits. EC does an excellent job of showing how games are beneficial to society and why they matter.
Hmm, both builds are taxless unfortunately. All retailers have a sales tax now in my state (7%). The first is $18 over $1000 so I might consider it.
I might've gone with 1 stick of RAM now and used that money to get a 270 or 270X.
generic comment about how's not Intel and why it sucks Jk. Beautiful build by the way
You just won PCPP, sir.
You could turn it the other way, actuallly. Just a bit of a hassle.
It's cool. Anyway I think the poster made a good choice with 8320 and 280X. 2 great bang-for-the-buck products from AMD, perfect for a budget. The only I can't let slide is an optical drive and that mobo. FX+760G=a no-no. But that's just how I see it. Your suggestions were good, as well. :)
Do you mean an Intel chip or an NVIDIA card because the cards Intel makes are NICs.
He probaby didn't pay that much for the SSD & HDD :P. It was most likely taken from an old build or obtained it from a friend or something like that.
mATX mobos for FX of decent to high quality are as rare as unicorn-leprechaun hybrids. The chipset you want for optional IOc'ing and performance is 990FX. The chipset used in the above isn't really recommended for FX unless you're using say a 4300. If you want a good MATX, go Intel or A-series. But these are just things I've gathered from forums, I don't own an mATX FX system so yeah.
Fanboyism is rather frequent, unfortunately on this site and really any other. It's quite saddening.
It's probably over 200. CS:GO isn't a system intensive game.
Might want to say that in the description so people stop with the downvoting. Seems that only I've figured out that you built this at an earlier date.
I'm guessing you built this a few years back. Or not. Either way, +1.
I'm pretty sure he built this a while ago.
Beautiful build and excellent parts choice. +1
The price on that Gigabyte board, tho.
He can run Fallout: New Vegas and Skyrim with no issues.
At least $200, maybe $230.
Nah, mate. No need. I plan on getting the HD681's when I buy all the parts for my build then get a ModMic 4.0 at a later date.
It will ONLY fry the board if you power on the board while it is on the bag.
How are the Superlux HD681's?
