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 Download the drivers for each respective parts since the included discs are probably outdated.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.

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.

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.

  • Processor is brand new, haswell refresh.
  • LGA 1155 is the predecessor to the LGA 1150, 1150 is newer.
  • Don't worry much about 32GB, 16GB is plenty for atleast 5 years.

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.

Regarding the monitor, I recommend this.

Parts Why?
Xeon E3-1231 V3 Basically a multi threaded i5
Stock CPU cooler Sufficient enough for a locked xeon
Kingston Fury Series 16GB DDR3-1866 16GB is enough for video editing
Samsung 850 pro 128GB I know there are many other ssd that offer better space for the same price, but none of those came close to the 850 pro performance
R9 290X PCS+ Enough for high end gaming at 1440p without breaking the bank
Phanteks Enthoo Pro M-ATX is going to limit your decision in choosing parts in the future, pick an ATX case instead
EVGA 650w Gold Offer better value than most of the competitor (CM VS, Corsair AX, etc)

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!

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.

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.

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.
