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.
What kind of OCs have you gotten on the pentium?
Prepare for the Glorious evolution.
naw man I think it might only be able to do nethack around 1-2 FPS XD
When I saw the 760 with that CPU I was about to freak out until i noticed it was a workstation lol
I know the feeling :(
Put some more ram in that bad boy, Plz!
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.
Now nestle is going to buy the aquifer, and sell the water back to the people for an exorbiant price.
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.
They're also more expensive then his entire build
good buld +1.
If i ever get a media center PC itl be my raspberry pi lol
do you have folding at home or einstein at home active? I so, turn it off and try again.
NETHACK 10FPS HEKK YEAAAA
he still does NCIX tech tips though, I think.
while i usually don't like that light blue color scheme, this is beatiful. +1
a 4670k uses the same socket as the rest of the haswells you know...
get it sabertooth was a kind of cat ;)
having the best grades, or "marks" as I beleive you brits call them, at school.
CARPET NOOOOOO! great build anyway +1
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.
I agree, but there are rumors that the next version of directX is only gonna be win 8 compatable D: microsoft get your head out of your a** please.
you can mod the prices if you got them from a different source/time thenn when you put the build up, but OK.
Nice build, but you could have gotten a 750 Ti for the same price here
perfect for light web browsing and occasional nethack or dwarf fortress 7-12 fps
lol just like the mini ITX build this site did earlier.
But graphics cards are obsolete nowadays, at least for bitcoins.
I'm looking at building something similar, how's KSP holding up for ya?
+1 because potato
like the mini ITX build this site did even same case and cooler lol.
... wow. that's new. I guess I kinda like it.
I don't have to sacrifice hamburgers: I'm a vegitarian lol. SAVE THE COWS GET A COMPUTER!
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.
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.
the R7 265 is better and is the same price.
KSP is ridiculously fun and also has linux support. $15 on steam, even less when on sale, and worth every penny either way.
+1 for Linux good Sir.
all my friends think i'm crazy because I use it lol.
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.
looks good, but i figured out an equivalent for over $200 less.
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.
