I agree with reoper6. I bought an ssd after I built my computer. It was a pain in the butt attempting to load my files onto the new ssd. I gave up and sold it. An ssd is only worth it if you don't have patience for a 30-45 second boot up time.

I like it, but you're list is out of porportion in terms of performance. You have a sub 900$ build, with 16 gigs of ram and a liquid cooling for the CPu. That GPU could use a boost and even the CPU too. You shouldn't have bought the extra 8 gigs of Ram and spent it on a better CPU and A small upgrade to the GPU. Also, why pay $70 for a case, that doesn't look great and comes with a 500 watt psu that you're going to replace anyways. There are great case for less than that, that are better quality, look better and don't have a 500 watt psu you need to replace anyways.

Overall, alright build. IMO, there are some meh decisions that you made.

I'm thinking of going to crack open my case tommorrow and try to fix some airflow. I think I have the air being pushed in from all of the directions, which will just push hot air around.

Any reason for the 6-core CPU and 4x4 ram? I think that the extra money to save two slots is worth it. Also, I don't need to spend $550+ for a cpu I don't need. The i5 4670K works great and is a great CPU for the money.

Also, you're not accounting for the 119$ that is the black widow keyboard. That brings me a $150 over budget.

I looked at the other choices for the 780 ti and the evga cards got me over budget. Honestly, i don't think that 50$ more is worth it to get an evga card.

Ok great! I was hoping for this good news. Now when you say playable, 24 fps is playable. I hope you're talking at least above 45, maybe into 60.

  1. I'll consider it.
  2. Do you have any particular reason why the brand is super important. In fact, I wanted this model because it has the "GeForce" LED and the 780 Ti engraved into the card itself. It was more of an aesthetic choice and it was cheaper than most other 780 Ti's.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "$2500 budget: Friend build"

  • 74 months ago

To be completely honest, there isn't a particular reason. Although with a budget of $2500, getting 16 gb didn't suit me. My computer when it was built at 1000$ had 16gb (now it's at around 1700 to 1800).

EDIT: Also, I'm not super pressed for money to squeeze out of this build. And I feel like it would be better to keep it. Although, if you were to provide a reasonable switch for the downgrade, i would consider it. ie: switched down to corsair 16gb and in exchange get a better processor/gpu or anything really. Or if you were to provide an alternate part list with the 16 gig substitution.

First of all I'm no OP...

But i already have these cards, and I couldn't do anything about it considering it was an upgrade process that took about a month and change. Thanks, though.

It's a desktop. Also, in the description, I'm trying to make this future proof. SO that's why I'm getting a >100$ display. This mac thing isn't permanent. It'll only be in use until he can muster 100$.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "matx build"

But then I have 100 less than I have to work with. $500 is already a small budget. So no. Now i'll have 400 for the computer and really 310 because the OS is $90. If he's happy with the monitor he's using now, then Let it be. There's no reason to spend extra money on a budget build, that doesn't need to be spent. Sorry, but respectfully, that wasn't the best advice.

True. Also, I had an Idea. I could get 3 Acer h236hl. They are 1080p and I was thinking of only getting one. But now I could get three, and have a surround display with an incredibly small bezel on each of the monitors. Also, it will cost less, and I have part laying around that I could sell for a total of around $250.

Okay, How much did you pay for your 2560x1440 monitor, Because I could sell my existing one for $100. What I'm seeing is over $350 even up to $550.

I was also thinking of selling my two 760's and buy a 780. Good move or bad move? Also, would I need to get a 1440p monitor? And how mnuch did that run you, because I'm looking online and I'm seeing High 300-400$ range.

I'm trying to keep that in there, because if she grows in here business I want her to have a beast CPU that can handle anything. And yes I know I could go with the 4770K or a 4820K, but I would prefer to keep the 3930K in the part list, unless I have to.

I would get 2x4 modules to captivate the dual channel-ness of the motherboard. It'll help with performance and RAM accessiblitly. Also, get off the 1155 platform, it's outdated and you can get a better CPU and motherboard for less. The noctua is good, but if you're spending 70+ on a CPU air cooler, might aswell go for a lower priced one, maybe the cooler master hyper 212 evo or even go for a liquid cooler, which in some cases is about the same amount. You don't need 750 watts either, but I would keep it, I did and I ended up needing that extra wattage to upgrade my build. I would also strive for a mid-tower case, which is smaller, and you don't need all of that space, but that case is great. Maybe look into a fractal design (particularly the silent ones).

For all of this advice about the parts and specifications about which type of part, you can use the search bar and/or the filter side panel. I hope I help, and if you need more help, you can message me or reply to this comment.

EDIT: You also need a storage unit, HDD (hard drive, slow but more storage) or SSD (fast, less storage, very expensive)

My opinion on the build: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/2CSNI A storage, better cpu, motherboard, RAM, less efficient (not a big deal, we're talking 5% max) but less expensive. You can get a less expensive case, but this is great build quality, and very very quiet. The video card is also negotiable but the 7950 is quite the card, but $400+, i dont know, sounds steep. Also, it's around the same price as your original bulid.

I was gonna say get slower RAM at about 1600 (but you need the faster RAM) to save some money to get a cooler. The stock one will not cut it. I've had that APU and it's good but you need a solid cooler. Maybe get a $10 one or go for the cooler master hyper 212 evo which is $30.

Clipping your anti-static wristband to the chassis and not having the PSU plugged in, is a very bad idea. You're basically putting all of your static into the case with all of your precious components

I'm sorry that I didn't clarify. i meant the insides. The exterior of the case looks alright, but the inside of the case, not even being black... Yuck... but hey dude, it works for you, so roll with it!
