I built this after upgrading from AMD old fx series CPU and needed to future proof a bit. Im planning on upgrading to the new Ryzen 7 1600x or the 1700x for some overclocking and better performance.
Pretty good build, but I think you overpaid way too much for that RX 480, might've wanted to wait 'till prices drop back to normal.
I think you could get a gtx 1080 for that much money.
Besides that, I'd keep the 1400 for the time being, and wait at least the next zen refresh to upgrade (rumored to be around next march-april), just to get more value out of it, unless you desperately need the extra cores.
thanks for that info the reason I'm thinking of upgrading to the 1500x is I'm planning on selling this build and starting on a new one. Also for some reason pc part picker put $485 when I only paid $345,
As others already stated, even 345$ is a bit too much for a rx 480, prices are really bad sadly.
If you're planning to sell the build, I'd say there's no need to upgrade to a 1500X before that, I think it's going only to decrease your gain from the selling.
About the new cpus, it's known that they're going to produce a new revision of zen, kind of a refresh (so possibly better clock speeds, maybe slight IPC gains, or maybe just lower prices), and it's rumored to launch about february - march next year.
It will be a new "generation" though, so you'll have another set of ryzen 7, 5 and 3 processors, much like we have now.
Are they launching any more powerful CPU's or just a continuation of the r7
Depends, I mean there is the Threadripper series
Did you really pay $485 for that 480?!? That's 1080 territory.
no for some reason it put that i only payed like $345 for the 480
Still a lot for a 480, wish prices didn't go up was going to pick up a 1070 :/
What are those headphones called?
I think it's the Astro A40 TR W/ Mixamp, in red obviously.
They are the original Astro a40's that I Plasti dipped red
Astro's. Dont get them, they are trash for the price.
Actually all of the Astro's I've had have had really good and clear audio and for $130 the only other options for headphones are Sennheiser HD 598 Cs
At 99$ you can have a Sennheiser HD 558's, which handily beat the astro's in sound, weight, and imaging. Hell, at $55 you can snag a SHP 9500 which still outperforms the Astro's... Grab a boom pro for $30 more and you have a top of the line headset for under $100. I think Astro makes an aesthetically pleasing product but it doesn't stand a chance in performance with audiophile grade headphones in the same price bracket.
So much red... too much red...
Change red to blood and you get:
So much blood...too much blood...
When some people game all they see is red................lol
My next build will have a custom loop with the liquid colored blood red
Sadly my HTPC has a red motherboard and red ram in it. Luckily the case for the HTPC does not have a side window and I replaced the front fan with a blue LED fan lol. I try to avoid red in my PCs unless my options are limited due to costs.
Hows the cable management?
are u talking abou in the pc or under the desk?
Does that case come with RGB?
Only on the front of the pc the rest is aftermarket
I'm over a year late, but I am thinking about building my own PC soon, I just wanted to know if you would recommend the PC case, the Phanteks P400. Is it easy to build in ? Good airflow ? Good cable management?
Does the case come with fan's?
