Forum Topic "First Time cheap build"

I just saw your update #2. It looks great! However if you think that you might overclock in the future, I recommend getting a z97 motherboard.. Otherwise, nice looking build :)

Also, since you want to save money, you could probably buy some form of SSD used for not that much. People underestimate the value of their last-gen SSDs.

something off ebay? P.S. Don't get a used PSU.

RubyJunk 1 point 45 months ago

You can't really upgrade an SLI of 970s. You could go 3-way, sure, but nothing supports three-way SLI. So, getting a single 980 Ti will let you upgrade in the future, and is practically as powerful (besides the VRAM thing)

Why do you need an i7?

A GTX 980 Ti.

He said GAMING not streaming, or other background tasks. Please read the description of the topic.

Please note that this guy is GAMING and has listed no other uses for this computer, hence I told him that the the i7-4790K is excessive.

buy used parts. that build is a waste of $100 that could have been donated to someone who actually needed it not building an overpriced potato -_-

You could use an x4 860K on the first one to save a little money and get a cheaper mobo...

Because you should spend less money on the CPU and more on the GPU if it's for gaming...

The 980 is a ridiculous match for the 4790K. I recommend you get at least a 980 Ti or maybe 2 in an SLI. If you only want one 980 Ti, you can get an i5-4690K. GTX 980's are ridiculously underpowered for their price.

Get the R9 380, and yes, it is worth the money.

Look at the top of the page, underneath the title. 1080p.

No wayyyyy. How are you going to make use of all that power? Antialising 64x ultra ultra realistic shadows everything ultra or something?? And even that wouldn't use all that insane horsepower... jeez.

You should have read my monitor recommendations... Why don't you throw out that 1080p monitor (I'll dispose of it for you) and buy dual 1440p 60hz or that fancy ROG swift or something... You don't really need the SLI....

RubyJunk 1 point 45 months ago

Did you look at the link? 8GB GDDR5. The GPU in this only has 2GB. I'm not saying that it's a certain, but there's a high chance that PS4 is better. Plus, they are produced in mass, so they can get parts cheaper.

The Corsair CX PSU is terrible, an FX-6300 has much better value, the RAM is overpriced, and the R9 380 is a better GPU.

You can use your monitor + the other two to play in surround. If you ever get enough money, you might want to add a second GTX 980 Ti.

I think they could probably handle it. At playable FPS, that's a different matter.

Forum Topic "£2000 Summer Gaming PC Project"

RubyJunk 1 point 45 months ago

Unfortunately I'm not very good about knowing stuff about monitors. However, the build I gave you should be great. Just remove one 980 Ti from the SLI and someday you might be able to upgrade.

As I said previously, this monitor is 1440p, IPS, and has a 60hz refresh rate. Just buy two of them and play in surround. The total price of the build + monitors should be around 2000 pounds. You should also be able to STILL dominate all those games you play, except for GTA V, at high settings.

Forum Topic "£2000 Summer Gaming PC Project"

RubyJunk 1 point 45 months ago

oh jeez... you might as well remove a 980 Ti, and buy 2 more 1440p monitors. And then, when you have some more money get yourself a second 980 Ti.

This monitor seems like a good 1440p one http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/part/benq-monitor-gw2765ht Is it the same size as yours?

Forum Topic "£2000 Summer Gaming PC Project"

RubyJunk 1 point 45 months ago

Ummm. This build might be ridiculously overkill unless your monitor is 144hz?

EDIT: Or you can buy 2 more 1440p panels and play surround. Then, this build wouldn't be overkill.
