You would have a point, except:

-AMD has better price/performance ratios for most things then Intel

-you don't really need even 3.5 gigs of Vram, unless you're using 4k or really intense 1440p renders, in which case you should probably splurge for a 980 anyways

-Seagate fixed it's drive failure rates, which weren't really that bad in the first place.

Seriously, that is class-A fanboying

the 285 gets like 3 more avg. FPS in modern games then the 960, and the 960 gets better min framerates by about the smae margin in many games, so they're actually just about the same.

It's not an old processor, its haswell refresh. With an OC, it gets i7-like performance in games.

Most of this build looks good, but the graphics card just doesnt make sense. The 750 Ti us near the bottom of the Nvidia gaming lineup, and the 4770k is one of the best CPUs on the market. Anything you do besides web browsing and programming is going to be seriously bottlenecked, and even a R9 270 would improve your framerates and video editing experience significantly.

Yeah, I was just saying that I would probably just load my Pi with some linux-based media center-type OS, not that you should have done that too. If you want the ability to run games later, this is just fine.

27 c is fine, don't see why you'd be concerned about that. I've seen builds hit 70 c and still work fine.

nice build, but you could have gone for a R7 265 instead. It's faster in almost every modern game and is crossfire compatable, so you don't have to throw out the old card to upgrrade.

Comment reply on salgio's Completed Build: If you call it a beast,Im taking it away from you!

  • 67 months ago

the R7 265 is about the same price and has better upgradeability because it has crossfire support, so you don't have to throw the old card out when you upgrade. AMD gets overlooked so much.

To be honest, you could have gotten a better GPU with that budget. If you had gone with the stock AMD cooler, some cheaper but still perfectly good RAM (I know it's out there) you might have been able to afford an R9 even.

otherwise, great balanced build.

good build,although its about $400 out of my budget. I live in america, so that might affect the price a little, idk. either way, its out of my reach.

I'm building something very similar, actually(http://pcpartpicker.com/p/3fEUA). looking at your build, your GPU was probably a little too powerful, and the processor might bottleneck a little, just judging by the price and brand. otherwise looks to be a pretty solid build, especially for a first-timer.
