Hows that WiFi adapter working for you? I've heard mixed reviews on that Rosewill thing.

Sorry for the late reply, haven't been on here lately ! The wifi adapter was not to good , or so i thought at first . My router was an older model and was on the other side of my house . I was organically getting 3mbps download speed on my 80mbps connection that i pay for . After buying a new router( ASUS RT-AC68U, AMAZING) I now have a connection of 32mbps . I would recommend going with power line for your connection if you cant get wired . Its the next best thing and can be found for about $30 .

+1 for managing to put an R9 280 in a sub-$800 build that includes the monitor and other accessories.

I'm planning on getting that card too. I don't know why but I used to feel like it wouldn't perform good because of it's low clock. lol. 1+

If you didn't need the peripherals what else would you have out in the build?

  • 62 months ago

Well i definitely would have got an i5-4670 . The performance is a whole lot better for gaming . Its just about $100 more .

Very nice. Can we see some pictures of the inside of the case? +1 though well done.

Would this build be suitable for an 8-core AMD CPU? Looking to build my first PC soon, this looks like a winner!

Sorry for the late reply, haven't been on here lately ! Yes it would be suitable with an 8 core CPU. I assume your talking about the fx-8350 ? It would boost frame rates in games up a bit and make it a bit quicker .

I am getting that same card tomorrow to go with an fx 8320. Your build is also very good! The processor is still great for the price considering it has 6 cores. +1

I'm working on a build similar to this and i was wondering what are a few games you get 60fps on and are you doing any overclocking or just stock speeds?

  • 62 months ago

First off , I have not yet ventured into the realm of overclocking yet. I am thinking of doing so though. now for the games , most games I can get to run at least 60 frames on the highest settings . Some of the newer games like Total War: Rome 2 require me to tweak the settings a bit to get 60 , but it still is very high .

Metro Last Light - 60-100 on highest with nvidia physix disabled .

ARMA 3 - 45-70 frames on high and ultra .

Dayz - because this game isn't the most optimized out there , I get about 50fps max .

COD: Advanced Warfare - 60+ on highest settings

Sniper Elite 3 - 100+ on highest settings

Crisis 3 - 50+ on highest, AA tweaked a bit

and just about any game that came out 2+ years ago will run over 60fps except maybe crisis 1 maxed out .

I went on GIGABYTE's website and they said the minimun voltage of the powersupply is 600w I have bought a 500w powersupply and I tried to look for a build with the same wattage powersupply. you seem to have 500w powersupply so I was wondering if your build is ok?

I've already made my build and its fine aswell. phew.

I created a build based off this, but did not opt to add in mouse/keyboard since I have some already. Anything you would change with this build that would not make the price any higher? Also the build mentioned that the size of the video card could impact the case? Any issues? http://pcpartpicker.com/user/superdmon/saved/fczWGX

I am going with almost this same exact build :D but on newegg it says the gpu needs 600w of power, so did your 500w work?

It worked/works great! I haven't ran into any problems whatsoever!

Hey! How is the build holding up? Quick question, did you buy a cooler for your CPU? If so which one? If not, would you suggest getting one now after running with this build for a month, or do you not think its necessary? Thanks!

Why is there so many bad reviews of this card on other sites but great reviews on pc part picker? Should I get this card?

Why not pump a bit more into that hard drive? Surely it's causing some kind of bottleneck?

I despise that word. It's worse than nails on a chalkboard. Bottlenecking. www.youtube.com/watch?v=DAgpvWc4VBM bottlenecking defined

Its a 6 g/s drive so I'd guess its not slowing it down noticeably, but I see where your coming from and maybe hes thinking of upgrading to a SSD sometime in the future. Overall +1 build.

6 GB/S is the bandwidth of the interface, that doesn't mean the HDD can read and write that fast. It can't.
