1+ for the innuendo alone. Although I must inquire, what's the intended purpose for this PC?
That is one fine budget PC, 1+ for convincing the lady.
How many times do we have to tell you...
There's no way you can game at any resolution whatsoever with a budget cheaper than a woman handbag.
I know it's a challenge, but please refrain from challenging us with a challenge that has no possibility of us answering, leading to our own pessimistic views and cursing you with swear words beyond what human can speak.
Install everything except the GPU. Download the drivers for each respective parts since the included discs are probably outdated. After downloading the bios update and whatnot, quickly download and install the R9 270 and its drivers, and install the GPU into the pci-e lanes. What's important is before you do any single thing with the PC, download the parts latest bios update/firmware. That way, no inflicting bios problems can be seen.
I see no problem in bios updates, as long as you know what to do beforehand.
Something like this?
PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant
Yes, it's called a Hybrid CrossfireX. Never tried it before, so unfortunately I can't tell you much.
Hyper-threading, lower power consumption, and longer lifetime durability.
The commercial counterpart, which is the i7 series are priced around $3-- while the Xeon E3 series are priced around $2--.
The only noticable difference between an i7 4790 and a Xeon E3 1231 V3 is the lack of integrated graphics in the Xeon. The xeon is strictly CPU only.
You won't need an aftermarket thermal compound, it's pre-applied on the included CPU Cooler.
Apart from that, I think it's a good balanced build.
Streaming? You'll better off with 16GB & Xeon rather than 8GB & i5.
1+ You sir, is a fine friend indeed. She's lucky knowing you.
The question you should be asking is, are you rich wasteful?
In performance the Razer 14 is obviously better in every aspect.
But the obvious smarter choice is the Y50 as stated by mrlucky.
And don't forget to mention the horrifyingly laggy turbotax
But can it run crysis?
I also plan to expose them regarding the CPU benchmark they provide, but the "mainstream" community seems to concern more about graphical performance rather than processing performance.
What concern me is that they decline any acquisition of bias. And when demanded to change the biased information, they ignore us. So the solution to this bullshitry is basically by DDOS boycotting them.
Possibly, but when protested they insist the benchmarks they provide are correct.
£250 for gaming? Sorry to say this but it's impossible.
I forgot :p, FTFY
edit: I forgot about the lack of GPU, this should do the trick.
Change the RAM into cheaper alternative such as this, also you won't need a Z97 if you won't overclock an H97 should do you fine. With the remaining money maybe you can get a nice R9 280 instead
Don't worry about the non-k series a bad idea whatnot, intrested in overclocking? pick a k processor, not interested in overclocking? pick a non-k / Xeon instead.
You won't need anything above 8GB for gaming (which I assume you will be doing since you picked an i5 instead of an i7),
aside from that it's a solid build.
If performance is accounted, the Xeon perform slightly better than the i7.
E3 without a single doubt, Xeon is generally build to last years more than the i7
The Xeon I choose would perform similarly to the i7, but cheaper, and newer.
Something like this perhaps?
Regarding the monitor, I recommend this.
Planning to overclock?
DDR2 or DDR3? It's crucial to pick your motherboard accordingly.
Does the monitor included in the price?
Wait, you actually went with my suggestion!? 1+
That's a little bit surprising considering majority of "Part List Opinions Wanted" are stubborn and mostly ignore the community.
Excellent part choice 1+, although your choice of duct tape is infuriating seriously flame?
You don't need a warranty, all you need is the product code, apple support is completely free and have amazing reaction time, heck you can even decide when you're going to have the support.
Try looking at : Mac -> Mac Notebook -> Other Topics -> System performance lower than expected.
Apple product support is often overlooked because their products are utterly nonsensical overpriced garbage, it's pretty amazing how when I have my very first problem with a PC, instead of going to forums I troubleshoot my PC in an apple support. A bloody APPLE support!
May GabeN be with you.
Heil mein herr herrlich GabeN
I can't really say for sure right now, for now it shows the common symptoms for RAM insufficiency or frequency problem. But that applies only on windows and linux. OSX have a different way of using the OS kernel so it might be just a regular virus.
I recommend contact the apple support for macbook pro.
Yes you need one. I recommend the windows 8.1. 64-bit from microsoft
Yes you might think, "Windows 8 is bad, it can't play older games, it's for touchscreen only, et cetera.." But the windows 8.1 is actually pretty decent, not only you have longer life expectancy (2020 as opposed to 2016) but you have faster booting time, and support for windows 7 app.
And if you think : "Windows 8 is bad because I used to windows 7 layout"
Fear not, the windows 8.1 brings back the start menu.
Yeah it might be a RAM problem, although I am no expert in OS X buffering problem (linux on the other hand..) so you might want to discuss with a Mac forum.
Yep, that's all you need.
Although I recommend a static wristband if this's your first build, trust me you don't want to build a gaming PC then later find out the GPU's fried just because of static electricity.
Yes, convert completely to the magnificently glorious PC gaming !
Unlike 4chan other forums, here we respect complete pc noobs.
I suggest this:
Faith restored in humanity !
Although I feel kinda bad for watercooling my PC recently...
I'm not gonna recommend it if you have no expertise or experience in laptop RAM, although if you feel brave you can try replacing the RAM yourself, just be aware of every screw, parts, and occasionally body parts.
It depends on how you want to use RAM itself. I have 16GB and just so I can run chrome/opera at 20+ tabs without the RAM buffering, Otherwise I would choose only 8GB.
For starters, you should find out the cause of your macbook buffering. It may or may not be a RAM issue, but the problem always lays either on your RAM, HDD, SSD, GPU (vRAM specifically), and other storage based data buffer with the special case of OS.
If you're gaming and suddenly it buffers and the texture become rigged, it's a vRAM issue (which is kinda impossible condsidering you're using a macbook). If you're video editing and of all sudden it buffer, you may have insufficient RAM depending on your video size. If it buffer when you access data, it might be an HDD/SSD/OS problem.
The RAM you plan to buy is unbuffered which mean it should fix your problem although at a pricier cost, so yes should do it. ONLY if you're confident the issue is in the RAM. I recommend the 16GB if you're willing to pay the price, but first check what the issue first.
Nope, just a poor pathetic useless ignorant excuse for a troll begging for attention.
Semi-modular is still quite easy to use, full modular however is stress free.
It's not that I particularly hate windows 7, I simply recommend the windows 8 because it's a better OS all around. Seriously though, what benefit did you get from using windows 7 over windows 8? especially windows 8.1.
At that budget point, you might want to buy an SSD later as opposed to now since it's not necessarily required.
Why not this instead?
Also you might want a CPU cooler since the one that comes with the FX is boisterously noisy
Graphically, but since you're for video editing I recommend mine instead since I included an i7
He should be in term of scaling, otherwise 4-way SLI 780ti is the smarter choice for the lower cost.
