Hey! just like 7 months after! lol , and I still don't build anything! Hopefully I'll start my build next xmas, but I got a question for you, what would you recommend? 8 gb of RAM or 16 gb of RAM? Would 8 bottleneck the Xeon? I will be gaming, streaming and maybe slight photo and video editing.

We like to build, that's why! Sorry for that question it's just that I've never thought about it, before with other builds... Well, quite an upgrade you made there! I honestly liked your build a lot, nowadays you often see the same thing over and over again, and you need something refreshing like this.

Thank you for sharing your experience!

I will ignore your overeacting and go foward to explain myself better. As you can see I never said this PC had a "lack of potential", so please don't put words in my mouth that I've never said. The laptop was just an example, and yeah you're right the greatest thing about PC's and the main reason we are here, is building our pc's so we can uprade later on. But if you could read the description, you'll see the OP says and I quote > This is not a gaming box. Also, a "decent high end" graphics card would be a little offset to the i3, altought as you said the i3- 4330 is quite a beast.

One question, Why did you choose to build a pc, instead of just buying a laptop? At this price point, and the potential that this pc has, wouldn't have been more convenient to just buy a laptop? Anyway, it's always funnier to build a PC

Oh yeah? Well what I meant it's performance-money wise. I've seen builds with 780ti's at this price point also I saw a r9 290 with an i7 at only $1000. So.... It's ok, I'd rather performance more than I'd rather peripherals.

Finally someone who can build a balanced machine with a i7 and a r9 290 for only 1,000 dollars, and you come here to talk about the case.

G.G.

EDIT: I know this case doesn't offer a good cable management.

Yeah sorry misspelled, well you're right in the future any new processor will be better. If I'd build something now, i'd go for the Xeon, gaming or rendering

Comment reply on highmountaingaming's Completed Build: My Personal Kick-Ass Build for $1500

  • 66 months ago
  • 1 point

Yeah, I know but you should also consider it. There's no real world performance difference, and if so, it would be like 2-3 fps. Rendering, it has been proven that Xeons beats most of the i7 in stock speed, but considereing you save a lot of money and you can't really see the diference is worth it. You don't need any special Motherboard or RAM, it works with LGA1050 and with normal ddr3 ram without problems. Look it up, it'ss gud deal

I'd like to overclock but for now it sounds a little risky for me. Right now $900 it is for my uncle though. He wants the best he can get for $900 to do gaming and very powerful for general use

You should also stalk my other part lists. The particular Xeon I pick, has an outstanding performance similar to a stock i7. For $60 bucks less. You should really check it out. How come a 6yo knows about it and you don't¡?

If I have the $900 should I downgrade to an i5? I do plan to get an SSD but not a $50-ish one

You can easily detect if the prices are accurate, when the prices are in gray color. Otherwise price will change according to the part's inflation
