Unless you're running a super cluster, I'm not sure you'll be able DayZ at ultra. However, you'll be able to play reasonably. I, with my FX-4100 and 960, can pay on minumum at a solid 40. You should be alright.

The primo isn't as great as the pro or the luxe. These cases, although smaller, have solved a good few niggles people have had with the primo. If I were you (and I am in a similar situation I'd wait till phanteks release an updated version of the primo.

As long as it has more than 5cm or ~2.25 inches of clearance then it'll be fine. You could get come small wooden planks or boards to prop your rig up a little more.

If your carpet is shag then that will always be a no no. but if it's not very fluffy then you'll be fine with it being 5cm above the ground.

If your carpet IS shag then just laying down a wooden board for it to sit upon will be fine.

  • 57 months ago

Will you be planning to SLi in the future? If so, how many new GPUs will you be adding in. You also need to think about how many HDDs you'll be using down the line also.

All these factors add up so, to be safe, I'd go for 800 if you're going to SLi, 600 if you aren't.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Which case should I get?"

Personally, I like the Phanteks Enthoo Pro. IMO, it's better than both.

Well, I have to say, I'm a sucker for the Phanteks Enthoo Pro and, if you have the budget, the Enthoo Luxe is another amazing option.

Let me explain my reasoning.

The RAM, you'll only need 8 gigs and that particular set of 8 GB is fine.

Video Card, the 280x performs a bit better than the 960 and it's about the smae price so that's a thing. It would seem (according to some benchmarks) that it's not as great for DX11 but the games you want to play are DX 10 I think so it's fine.

PSU, 600 Watts of bronze certified Corsair glory, I'm not a corsair Fany boy (I run OCZ power and I got my dad a superflower PSU) but I have never had any problem with the Corsair PSUs.

All in all, it'll only cost you just over $300, though if I were you, save up $350 for hidden costs and shipping.

Not saying that, it's just, from my experiences with AMD hardware on my own rig (although that's not very great) and on a lot of rigs that I know of, teh AMD stuff isn't allways up to snuff.

I have a similar problem with my ethernet slot, though, it may be the cable end being a little damaged, faulty or broken a bit. It's annoying though...

Also, why did you go for an AMD cpu if you'll be doing video editing?

He might have already purchased it or had it given to him before doing the build. There's not pricing on it and he put custom pricing on other things.

When you but a game from disc, you still need to install them. The average game is about 8 gigs however, you'll want to put your operating system on there too so tht'll be about 40 gigs of used space with all the functions and you'll want your internet browser and a few extra programs on there as well.

If you're fine with a slight slight downgrade on you're CPU adn GPU then you'd be perfect with this.

The AMD mobo should be fine. I've got an FX 4100 right now but I'm hating it becasue when I got it I thought I'd only want to play games and it plays most games pretty okay but with DayZ and super modded Fallout it tends to want to give up.

The 8 core CPU should be fine.

All teh parts fit allfine and you're components are good but you're going to want more RAM sticks than less. 2x4 gigsticks is better than 1x8 gig stick.

I don't know of any intel CPU + AMD GPU issues, but I'm the kind of guy who allways goes for Intel and Nvidia so you know but I know that some slightly older games like to break if you have more tehn 4 coreas and some (like Fallout 3) break if yo have more than 2 cores so keep that in min. You can still get away with 2 core builds today but they're slowly being phased out so I imaigine that 4 core machines will start to get phased out in about 5 years time. 6 core intel rigs are very expencive so it'll take a while bfore taht sort of things heppens.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "How does this look ..??"

Looks fine. Go for more sticks than less if you can. 4x2 gig > 2x4 gig > 1x8 gig if you know waht I mean.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Whats better ?"

  • 62 months ago

Anything to do with video editing, you'll want intel. That's my opinion anyway.

The Xeon is mainly for servers and things, I'd go for a really good i5 like teh 4690k. It's really quite good.

Everything else is really quite good.

Don't trust any PSU that doesn't have an 80+ certification. Corshair are good but so are superflower and a good few others. As long as the PSU is abe 20% more power than what you need and is 80+ certified then you're good.

The corsair is a good choice though.

One memory stick is worse then 2. Go for 2 4gig ram sitcks so if one dies, you're not left with a PC that can't do anything.

Everything else seems to be pretty good.

You're going to want some HDD storage as well. 1 TB just in case you want to record videos or do other things.

No games I know of use more that 4 cores. I'd go with the i5 personally but people who like AMD a lot seem to really like AMD a lot. I don't really so my opinion is a bit biased just so you know...

Everything else seems to be pretty good.

A lot of people are saying wat for AMD's 300 series before buying any new cards but if you want them now then you'll want to concider that crossfire can cause problems in a lot of games. The 970 seems fine. My brotehr has one and he has had no problems with playing on his 1080p TV so I'd say go with the 970 build. 1 GPU should be fine.

For the sims, you're going to want an SSD, 120 gigs should be great. Those games take a very long time to load but other than that, it seems pretty good.

For gaming, you're okay but you'll feel the strain on that SSD. I have a 128 gig SSD and I only have DayZ, minecraft and staermade on it for games and FLStudio, Photoshop and Premiere on it for programs and my OS.

I have 8 gigs left of space on it.

You're proably going to want a 240 gig SSD for your good things and you'll want atleast 1 TB of HDD for your otehr junk (I put Fallout, my fallou tmods my pictures, recoded videos and other things on a 1.5 TB drive). Get a hybrid drive if you want to keep some speed of an SSD. Hybrid drives can be amazing for OS boot times but you'll want to keep games on an SSD.

Your otehr hardware seems good though.

It would seem that that would work however, I'm not an expert with AMD cards. I know that for Nvidia cards, you'll want at least a GTX 660 or higher but that's without graphics mods insatlled in the game.

Indavidual parts wise, might I suggest:

http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/part/samsung-internal-hard-drive-mz7td250bw as an SSD for your games,

http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/part/seagate-internal-hard-drive-st2000dm001 for mass storage (belive me, I've only got 1.5 tb of space and I was all out in a few months)
