Is that including peripherals? Or just the rig itself?
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.
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!
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)
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!
Am good, I've built plenty of computers before. It's just getting the parts together that's hard to me.
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? :]
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!
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.
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.
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
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?
Okay! thank you a lot mate!
I'm confused then, he's asking for lga1155, and that's what the board is?
m8 don't h8 and sk8
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"
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.
Yeah, it's not good to add more thermal paste on top of paste that is applied, if you put it there or not.
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!
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
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.
If any of you guys can tell me what case (personally) you would get, that would also be greatly appreciated! http://pcpartpicker.com/part/phanteks-case-phes614pbk - between the one in my partlist
Thank you! Was trying to go with lower profile, but I think I should be fine.
http://pcpartpicker.com/p/VKCRqs (included OS in price range for you)
ah, alright. thanks a lot mate
Alright, thanks a lot mate.
If you're going to be doing any overclocking,(assuming from the motherboard) you would need a 4690k processor.
Since its a graphics card, and everyone wants it, i'd be helpful to buy it now so I can get it quicker?
Never mind that they don't even carry it
Would you know when it's coming back in stock?
Oh! Thank you so much man! Sorry :P Didn't see detail!
http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/p/KFtQLk it's $60.00 over, but if you need to, you can cut the price in the case, PSU, or motherboard. Without OS and peripherals
Ohh, my bad man, didn't think about that.
Alright. Thanks a lot man
Okay, thanks man. Would you recommend using the stock fans, or should I buy my own?
How many would you recommend? The case comes with 3, but I'm going to switch them to LED ones
What do you mean?
"Front: (x2) 120mm
Top: (x2) 120/140mm
Rear: (x1) 120mm
Bottom: (x2) 120/140mm
Side: (x2) 120/140mm
MId: (x2) 120mm"
2+2+1+2+2+2=11? Yes, 3 are already in the case, but who wants 8 led and 3 not?
Why is that about the keyboard? I only like the noise it makes with the keys tbh ahaha, why: " make sure that you really know you want a mechanical keyboard before you get it."
has 3 included, yes EDIT: at 120mm each
Well, if you want the case still ($98) http://pcpartpicker.com/part/corsair-case-cc9011019ww - and was my bad,forgot to switch to usa when I grabbed link
Also supports up to 11 Case fans, so good if you wanted a lot of cooling.
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.
