Forum Topic "Best time in history"

lilshatespug217 1 Build 1 point 38 months ago

Right Now is the best standard of living in history. It's just a lot of people are Entitled, or Hypocritical SJWs, or Lazy, or just plain Stupid. That being said, that can be fixed if we try to educate people about the real world. While that would be hard to do... its easier than inventing a time machine, don't you think?

7 Is somewhat vauge. However, quite a lot of people add gaming capabilities to home computers if they so desire that extra umph, and rarely have the home and gaming PCs separate. That's why I worded the question as I did.

Thank you for participating!

Here's what I got: PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant

Type Item Price
CPU Intel Core i7-6700K 4.0GHz Quad-Core Processor $413.99 @ Newegg
The best CPU for gaming one can get, due to insane single core performance, and hyperthreads for games and programs that need it.
CPU Cooler Corsair H110i GTX 104.7 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler $121.99 @ Newegg
A damn solid cooler.
Motherboard MSI Z170A GAMING M5 ATX LGA1151 Motherboard $162.98 @ Newegg
This is a very good, very OC friendly mobo.
Memory G.Skill Ripjaws V Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-2400 Memory $74.88 @ OutletPC
It's RAM.
Storage Samsung 850 Pro Series 512GB 2.5" Solid State Drive $212.49 @ Micro Center
SSD. Never had an SSD before, but I have heard Samsung ones are good.
Video Card MSI GeForce GTX 980 Ti 6GB Video Card $649.99 @ B&H
This is the best gaming card on the market.
Case NZXT S340 (Black) ATX Mid Tower Case $64.99 @ Micro Center
A case. A nice one but still a glorified box to put stuff in.
Power Supply SeaSonic Platinum 860W 80+ Platinum Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply $129.99 @ Newegg
A reliable power supply so my fancy MSI stuff doesn't get deep fried.
Operating System Microsoft Windows 10 Home Full - USB (32/64-bit) $105.99 @ SuperBiiz
It's windows, with all the good and bad that comes with that.
Prices include shipping, taxes, rebates, and discounts

Yes. Swap it for something like a 250x... no idea why he picked a quadro for a build not made for graphic design.

And why a xeon e5 on x99 instead of xeon e3 on h97?

That is a fairly sub-par deal. Hit up @skemble https://pcpartpicker.com/user/skemble/. He builds PCs for clients and is well reputed. Its not as cheap as building yourself, but its a better deal that what you chose.

lilshatespug217 1 Build 1 point 43 months ago

That's windows 7. With windows8 (and presumably 10) you need a new license if you change mobo.

Forum Topic "Upgrading cpu and motherboard"

lilshatespug217 1 Build 1 point 43 months ago

Windows is indeed tied to the mobo if he bought a OEM license.

@op If you cheaped out and went oem instead of boxed, you will need to rebuy. Sorry.

  1. Yes.

  2. Hmmm... maybe, but I'd need more data. Might even get fancy with spreadsheets or something (though, again, only if I get more than 2 responses that aren't by me. Tell your friends!).

  3. Hmmm. maybe

  4. No. Having 11 Questions would bug me, so I'd have to add 4 more and make it 15, which would be unnecessary.

Forum Topic "Technical Backround"

lilshatespug217 submitter 1 Build 2 points 47 months ago

My response:

  1. What was your first computer and when did you get it? Single core Compaq presario from 2003... I got it in 2009. I rmember getting 5fps in minecraft alpha on lowest settings.

  2. What was the first computer you built and when did you build it? A server machine in august 2014. I have upgraded other machines, however.

  3. What is your main usage of computers? School, internet, gaming, minor game development.

  4. Do you come from a techy family, or are you the only one in your family? I come from a VERY tech-oriented family. My dad was actually the on who convinced me to build a PC as opposed to buying a pre-built.

  5. What is your favorite operating system? Debian-based linux. I use ubuntu for my laptop, and debian with xfce4 for my terraria server. (Though, I do use windows on my gamin PC, and OSX on my school machine)

  6. What do you consider the sane price range for a consumer computer? $600 - $2,000 (Sweetspot being $800-$1200)

  7. What is most noticeable upgrade to a machine you have made? I remember installing an ssd in soneone's server... while I do not own said server, the performance during the time I was setting it up was jaw-dropping

  8. Do you prefer a machine that has cheap parts that will last at most three years, but preforms amazingly well, or do you prefer a machine that is weaker, but will last over five years and is upgradeable?

  9. Mechanical or membrane keyboard? I like mechanical keyboards, such as the old Imac one I am using now, but I deal with a membrane one for my gaming PC.

  10. Do over 1080p resolutions (1440p, 4k, 5k, etc) make sense for you? Do you use multi- monitor setups? Not really. 1080p has always been fine for me with my 23in monitor. However, if I got a bigger monitor it would be different.

Solid_Gaming's Completed Build: Solid PC 2.0

lilshatespug217 1 Build 1 point 47 months ago

Absolutely true... Unless the game chokes on the 2gb memory (as I said)

Solid_Gaming's Completed Build: Solid PC 2.0

lilshatespug217 1 Build 0 points 47 months ago

Depends. The second the game uses over 2gb vram (as many games do), the 960 drops off a cliff. The 4gb 960 does beat the 280, however.

Solid_Gaming's Completed Build: Solid PC 2.0

lilshatespug217 1 Build 0 points 47 months ago

Even just the 280 (non x) at $180 beats out the 960

Solid_Gaming's Completed Build: Solid PC 2.0

lilshatespug217 1 Build 2 points 47 months ago

280x > 960

Other than that, good job. This is a, well, solid gaming PC

http://www.apple.com/imac-with-retina/

"Starting at $1,999"

Not as powerful as this machine, but really, do you NEED 32gb ram? The "low end" imac with the i5 and M290x is fine for most photo editors (the target audience of this product).

Now, if you can beat the $1,999 model, THEN I'd be impressed.

HamzahPatel's Build Guide: An Equivalent of the iMac 5k that is £900 cheaper (iMacs are Ripoffs)

lilshatespug217 1 Build 0 points 47 months ago

So... this is a $2,000 all in one with a 5k monitor, right? And it uses ~110 watts at idle, right? And of course, the OS runs natively in 5k without weird scaling... right? Right? If not, this is nowhere NEAR a 5k iMac equivalent, stop saying it is.

Not saying that this is a bad build, but it is missing the form factor, is $1,500 more expensive, and does not have the quality control or warranty of an iMac 5k.

P.S.: I am FAR from an apple fanboy (If anything, I'm a Linux fanboy...). I just find false claims such as claiming this is a 5k iMac equivalent disgusting...
