Forum Topic "How much should I sell this for?"

jacobqz submitter 1 Build 1 point 33 months ago

Is that including peripherals? Or just the rig itself?

Forum Topic "Need help with parts. Open to any suggestions."

jacobqz 1 Build 1 point 37 months ago

I agree with upgrading the power supply a little. That way there, if you ever wanted to upgrade or add anything in the future, you won't have to worry about power. I also second the Western Digital hard drive. If you really wanted the optical drive for the operating system, I'd go with a cheaper one, as it's a one time use thing.

Forum Topic "Help Comment!"

jacobqz 1 Build 2 points 38 months ago

Looks good, though if you had the money it wouldn't hurt to upgrade the power supply a little (if you plan on overclocking your cpu). Great choice of parts in my opinion!

Forum Topic "How will this build perform you heavy gaming"

jacobqz 1 Build 1 point 38 months ago

I would personally upgrade the CPU to an i3/i5 like the other person stated, and also get at least 8gb of ram, 4 would work alright, but it's cutting close in my opinion (for high end games on high graphics)

jacobqz submitter 1 Build 1 point 44 months ago

I was hoping that's what you meant.. I guess the winkyface threw me off :P. Anyway, I like to buy off of big retailers, even though you normally end up paying more, I like the security to it. I could never buy anything off of Kijiji!

Forum Topic "680USD/900CAD Build for 1080p gaming?"

jacobqz submitter 1 Build 1 point 44 months ago

Am good, I've built plenty of computers before. It's just getting the parts together that's hard to me.

Forum Topic "680USD/900CAD Build for 1080p gaming?"

jacobqz submitter 1 Build 1 point 44 months ago

I haven't used mine yet even, but I'd rather be safe than sorry on that one. Mind linking your build so I can take a look at it? :]

Forum Topic "680USD/900CAD Build for 1080p gaming?"

jacobqz submitter 1 Build 1 point 44 months ago

Okay, thanks very much!

I'll squeeze one in. 430W fine though?

Completely forgot about 750Ti, will add that. How big of a psu would you recommend?

Canadian currency! Forgot to mention!

jacobqz's Completed Build: $1800 budget build

jacobqz submitter 1 Build 1 point 49 months ago

It's a nice case, but I think if I had to redo my build, the case would be the one thing i'd change. It doesn't have the best management for cables, as some drive bays are in the way and I had to remove some of them.

Forum Topic "What are cores about?"

jacobqz 1 Build 2 points 54 months ago

Here's an example for you: Imagine doing math by yourself (1 core). It might take longer, or you might get it done faster than someone else, (speed of cpu) now, if you are doing it, with another person with the same ability and speed as you, you would get it done faster (2 cores) etc, etc.

Forum Topic "1k Gaming Build: Need feedback. 80% Gaming and 20% Editing and Recording"

jacobqz 1 Build 1 point 54 months ago

You'll need a better motherboard for overclocking, and seeing how you have a K series processor, you will be overclocking. You should be going for a Z97 version motherboard, or downgrade your processor to a locked version if you're not overclocking. Here's my recommendation: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/msi-motherboard-z97gaming5 EDIT: Only thing is - it only has headers for (I believe) 2-3 case fans, so you would also need to buy a fan controller if you wanted 4 fans still

Forum Topic "Overclocking"

jacobqz submitter 1 Build 1 point 54 months ago

alright, thanks

Forum Topic "Overclocking"

jacobqz submitter 1 Build 1 point 54 months ago

Thank you!

Forum Topic "Overclocking"

jacobqz submitter 1 Build 1 point 54 months ago

About that! I remember hearing about that, but how do you do it? I (think) it's already on the motherboard, and it adds a program, and it stresses the cpus until they reach their limit right?

Forum Topic "Was Supposed To Buy Today But..."

Okay! thank you a lot mate!

I'm confused then, he's asking for lga1155, and that's what the board is?

Haha :P

Forum Topic "ATX motherboard for sli"

jacobqz 1 Build 1 point 54 months ago

What do you mean by that? It is Lga1155. "CPU Socket LGA1150" That's what you're looking for mate. Look at the specifications. There, you can also see if it can be Sli'd or not. "SLI Support Yes"

Forum Topic "Are you familiar with this site http://www.techpowerup.com/ ?"

jacobqz 1 Build 2 points 54 months ago

I'v never heard of the website, but from what I've seen from it, it looks like they know what they're talking about.

Forum Topic "PC for Skyrim under 2K"

jacobqz 1 Build 1 point 54 months ago

Yeah, it's not good to add more thermal paste on top of paste that is applied, if you put it there or not.

Forum Topic "ATX motherboard for sli"

jacobqz 1 Build 1 point 54 months ago

http://pcpartpicker.com/part/msi-motherboard-z97gaming5 Only thing I dislike about this mobo, is that it only allows connection for 3 case fans, so you might need a fan controller also!

Forum Topic "PC for Skyrim under 2K"

jacobqz 1 Build 1 point 54 months ago

Yeah, but you also got to buy (forget what the name was exactly!) a remover for the thermal paste. I know it's like $10 for both, but people like me are lazy! :P

Forum Topic "PC for Skyrim under 2K"

jacobqz 1 Build 1 point 54 months ago

Nice build, but, that aftermarket cpu cooler already comes with thermal paste pre-applied so there's no point in buying more (offtopic, he also asked for a monitor) :P. Great though. Glad I wasn't the only one who laughed from the graphics haha.

Forum Topic "My first ever build"

jacobqz 1 Build 1 point 54 months ago

If you're going to be doing any overclocking,(assuming from the motherboard) you would need a 4690k processor.

Forum Topic "Pre order?"

jacobqz submitter 1 Build 1 point 54 months ago

Since its a graphics card, and everyone wants it, i'd be helpful to buy it now so I can get it quicker?

Avoid the EVGA ACX 970, which had a heatpipe issue, all other 970's are perfectly fine. - If you want a 970, go MSI Twin Frozr, or Gigabyte.
