Post more pictures please. And write a better description.

If I had to take a guess, it would be the lack of photos and/or a more detailed description of the build.

While you did great on your hardware choices... your cable management and pictures are a whole different story...

The only gripe I have with this build is the PSU... I would have recommended going with SeaSonic or Corsair.

In terms of hardware balance, +1, very good. Can't really say much for the prices since I'm not to sure how the British Pound stands with in the US Dollar in terms of currency exchange. But overall, great job!

Wow. This needs to be upvoted more. This is amazing.

By the way, did you buy your two monitors separately? One's $129 and the other's $119...

If you wanted to keep it under $600, I would have recommended getting a 32 or 64 GB SSD and using it as a cache in order to improve the speed of your mechanical drive.

Looks pretty good. Personally I would have found a cheaper SSD, but that's just me. Good job though. +1

It's fine, don't worry about what other people said. Assuming it's your money you're spending, as long as your happy, it doesn't matter what others think.

You are, however, you need to keep it polite. By the way you're putting it, you setting yourself up for arguments. Saying someone wasted their money isn't constructive criticism.

Hopefully you read the disclaimer by the comment input box.

"When commenting on a completed build please keep your feedback polite and constructive, particularly if commenting on part choices and possible alternatives."

So far , you have been anything but polite

This is FANTASTIC for the price! It's amazing how you were able to keep a sub-400 price point even with a monitor! Kudos!

Even though I think you could have gotten better results with a discrete GPU and normal CPU for the same price, as long as you're happy, I'm happy! :)

Yes, my motherboard supports up to 2133, which is the clock speed I'm aiming for.

You don't have to (as SSD's can get REALLY expensive), but it's nice to have. As for the Wi-Fi adapter, if you plan on using wireless internet on your computer, then you do need an adapter, however, if you plan on using a wired connection (that is, via an ethernet cable), then you'll find a port for that on every motherboard.

I would say you want to ideally have a 1+ TB hard drive and some kind of SSD for Windows and some games.

I would assume wired because I don't see a Wi-Fi adapter in his pictures nor in his parts list.

Oh I don't know.... maybe because his father died and he dedicated his computer to him?

But probably because of his cable management... that's fantastic

No, I didn't. The 6800k at the time I was purchasing my hardware cost aprox. $140-$160. I was looking for a sub-$500 build and the 5800k was all I needed. Please do your research before you post such naive comments.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "do I have a dead mobo?"

  • 67 months ago
  • 1 point

Yeah, that's really weird. I know this sounds tedious but try taking the whole thing apart and rebuilding it, making sure everything goes where it's supposed to. If THAT doesn't work, then just send the mobo, it should still have a valid warranty on it, provided that you bought it recently.

I don't really see how you could get this kind of build for any cheaper... (besides the mobo)

Although I have to agree with ravagex, you should have gone with an FX series CPU as the Phenom you chose is 3-4 years old.

Hahaha I was just saying that it's ironic that you're overclocking to get more performance, yet you're actually getting the complete opposite. :)

You should probably work on the cable management. If there isn't anything in the case, just organize the cables a little bit with some zipties.

To be honest, I don't have any specific specs, but to give you an idea:

Minecraft (Highest settings) - 60 fps TF2 (Highest Settings) - No clue what the specific fps is, but it's fairly smooth.

I'm sure if you Google it you'll find more benchmarks on it.

That was actually one of the cases I researched when I was finding out what parts to buy. However, I'm a sucker for the smaller, micro-atx cases (Even though the cable management is atrocious!).

Originally it was $62.99 USD, but I had a $20 credit so I used that up.

Honestly, I'm trying to stay under $50 USD for a Micro-ATX Case. So yeah, cable management is pretty much out of the question. But thanks for the recommendations. :)

I didn't notice that. By the way, have you tried playing anything more high end like Crysis or Battlefield 3? If so, could you please post the aprox. FPS you're getting?
