Description

The first PC I ever built. Made it back in 2013. Still holds up today getting around 60fps on most games with high or ultra settings.

Perhaps the community should re-evaluate it's view on the CX series.

Its slowly morphing from "Get a new PSU that one sucks" to "that PSU is ok but there are better ones"

the parts used aren't all they are cracked up to be but it doesn't make it a fire hazard as some people would assume.

Maybe you could've opted for a R9 390 or something like that, but I like the build anyways.

Yeah, I only bought the 770 because it was the cheapest GTX card that still looked like a Titan (lol). That being said, the 770 is holding up quite well over the past years despite it not being top-of-the-line.

Nice build man

How has the k70 been treating you over the years?

Nice looking build!

Like most I'm surprised the PSU has held up this long. Sadly, low end Corsair PSU's have bad rep.

How are the peripherals holding up? Really want to get a K70, and the Mad Catz mice have always interested me.

+1 for cool build and the name!

The K70, despite half of the stupidly exposed and unprotected LEDs dying on me, is an amazing keyboard and well worth the price. In retrospect I should have waited until corsair released the RGB series because their LEDs are under the switch itself. As for the R.A.T.7, the included drivers and software are not very good. Which is a shame because that means I can't use that cool extra scroll wheel and accuracy button. Thankfully windows was able to find the drivers needed on its own and I still keep the rat around today because it's the only mouse big enough to fit my freakishly large hands. Hope that helps.

Looks fresh & clean, I would have even guessed that your were using older parts! You should make the video card your next upgrade (other than maybe your PSU) on your list.

Sweet little cube build. You sure got it all packed in there.

Well, compared to other M-itx cases, the prodigy is like building in a corsair 900D.

Looks good to me. The colors on this are real nice. I can't say I like the V300, but that's mostly because of the mixed quality overall, and not specifically against any individual unit.

Dangit! You took my idea for my build name! Oh well, great minds think alike. +1

I will have to disagree on the HDD and PSU, although you seem to be having no issues with either for this long, so I'll let it slide. I next recommend upgrading the SSD or GPU.

Why do you disagree with the HDD?

The V300 is extremely slow for the price.

Not very reliable and overpriced.

Not very reliable and overpriced, compared to Seagate & especially Hitachi/Toshiba. WD Black is more reliable, but way too much money. Hands down, there is no arguing that Hitachi/Toshiba makes the best HDDs around.

You say this alot, but you have no proof for less reliability. Is it more expensive? Yes. Less reliable? No

Hitachi is a subsidiary of WD so their drives will be fairly similar. Toshiba also uses WD stuff for their drives.

All hard drives will fail eventually.

Actually, Hitachi is not a subsidiary of WD, at one point they were, but they broke away a long time ago.

And look it up. Hitachi/Toshiba has the best reliability & lowest fail rate.

I would definitely agree with you about the hard drive and SSD. I Bought the SSD on sale for $40 (A steal at the time) but I did so a couple months after I installed everything on my HD. To this day, not one byte of data has been placed on that thing... As for the hard drive and well... most of the other non-bang-for-the-buck components, I only really checked for compatibility issues and not price points. This was my first build and I wanted things to looks flashy which led to me buying stuff on a whim. least it all still works.

Also. A Question to any pcpicker veterans out there: Is it possible to update to parts in this list? I'm thinking about an upgrade soon.

  • 49 months ago

Which list?

  • 49 months ago

On this completed build. Or is it stuck as is forever.

  • 49 months ago

Oh yeah, I'm pretty sure you can use Haswell Refresh (4690k, 4790k, etc.) and a better GPU, RAM, etc. Almost everything is upgradable.

Oh, I meant the site's part list lol, I know how to upgrade irl. But it doesn't really matter anyway, it's just a digital list.

  • 49 months ago
  • 1 point

Yeah, you can. Just go to your profile and select completed builds and then click edit and it will give you different options for selecting what to edit. I recommend making a new saved part list first for the build, and then selecting that to overwrite the current one.
