Great balanced build for the price. Only thing I might recommend would be a better brand PSU, but that's about it.

This is a little bit awful. Waste of money on the RAM, bad HDD choices, mediocre GPU, and a 900W PSU (wtf?).

Alight sounds good. Do the LED keys look really red? They look pretty sweet in the pictures.

Some odd choices here, but I guess if you like it it's fine. Don't have a clue what you're using this for though seems really unbalanced.

How do you like that keyboard? I'm considering buying it. Looks like a nice build though, really balanced.

Ok, makes sense. Thanks for clarifying. :)

Nice build and good cable management. The only thing I would change is the SSD, could have gotten much better ones for the same price.

If you bought it recently, a lot of things. If it was bought when the 480s were new, like I said, then there's nothing wrong with it.

I might be wrong, but I think he may have the fan there to stop it from interfering with the RAM heatsinks. And then he reversed it so it's pulling air from below and pushing it out the top.

Also, there's nothing actually wrong with your monitor, but it's a little small for gaming.

It's like night and day from your old build, especially aesthetically. How do you like that PSU? I'm looking at getting it.

And use that money to get a better GPU. Also, that RAM is about double the price it should be, and you might want to consider getting an SSD.

Other way around. The CPU will bottleneck the GPU. The GPU is the most powerful on the market, but the CPU is middle of the pack.

Comment reply on F4STizBACK's Completed Build: AMD FX 8350 Mega Build

Where to start... 1) Please do not pair an AMD CPU with a 690. It's a federal offense. 2)I can almost guarantee you don't need 32GB of RAM. 3) Get either a Crucial M4 or a Samsung 830 Series SSD. 4) Get some real monitors for that 690. 2 or 3 24/27" 120Hz would be pretty sweet. Even just one 27" would be better than a wimpy 23". 5) Obviously if you switch to an Intel CPU, you'll need a different motherboard. As to which one, I honestly have no idea but I'm sure someone else can help you with that. 6) I'd suggest a better PSU brand, but the wattage doesn't really look too bad.

Other than that looks like a sick build.

2 480s? What a waste of money. I hope you bought those a while ago. Other than that, it looks like a nice build.

This build is strikingly similar to the one I'll be building. Other than the unnecessary RAM, looks like a really balanced build.

How do you like that case? I'm trying to decide between that one and another.

i5 3570K...

As far as I know, the i5 is the best for gaming, and the i7 is only significantly better for things that take advantage of hyper threading.

Yeah, I find it hard to believe that the difference in temps for idle and load is 4 degrees.

Some of your choices here are a little iffy. Especially the GPU for a gaming "behemoth." If you saved some money on the case (as awesome as it is), and some money on the RAM, you easily could have gotten a 670 or 7950.

Why did't you get the 7850 with 2GB of memory? It's only like $20 more. And a better CPU would have been nice.

Setting up that MOBO, GPU, and Water Cooler with that CPU is almost a crime.

It's refreshing to see a build like this after seeing so many people throw away money on mediocrity. Well done, and nice cable management too.

"It's hard to manage cables in this case." Really. A full tower case? I beg to differ.

Spent $1678 and you got an AMD CPU? Also, that PSU is absurdly large for this build.

That's what I was thinking. But someone I talked to who used 8 has said that if you disable metro, they have actually improved a lot of the W7 features and it runs just as well.

But if the price of 7 drops after the release I'm just going to stick with it.

I see some places where you wasted money, as said above me.

But how do you like Windows 8? I can't decide if I'm going to put it on my new build this winter, or stick to 7 which I really like.

Looks like a beast of a build, except that I don't know why you got 4x2 RAM instead of just 2x4. Not only would 2x4 be slightly faster, but it would also leave you room to upgrade in the future should you need to.
