Wow, looks right about what i'm going to build! Love the cable management, keep up the good work! +1 from me
I think you'll enjoy the world of PC gaming ;)
Wow, you have to send me a link on where to get deals like that ;D but good build +1 :D
nice build :) as for the fans, if there's a spot to put some, fill them all up! haha, just think about airflow, typically it's fresh air in from the front (and bottom if there's a spot) and out the back :)
if you had read the description, he said that they didn't have his graphics card on the list, so I'm guessing he just threw a random on in there
" I got 16GB or RAM since my old laptop had 8GB and I would always fill it up when using After Effects and other applications at the same time" that's why he got it
ah, true that. that's what i thought, i couldn't find it in stock anywhere, except maybe used off of ebay or amazon
why is that MOBO $300?!?!?
MAYBE minesweeper on lowest graphics, but that might be a stretch ;)
needs more pictures! other then then great description and build :)
Why the 2133MHz ram? is grandma playing BF4 or something? lol
buy why would he save the money for a lesser CPU if he wanted the performance? Sure he could've saved just a bit and gotten a 8530 or even a 6300, but in all honesty they don't compare to a i5
(i don't know how to do the pound symbol on my american keyboard, my bad) but 45 pounds = about $75 so how is that cheaper? the 6300 for 80 pounds is about $134 converted (and to buy it's about $117)
Well 1866 ram would've been best, 2133 and 2400 are just squeezing a tad bit more out, but not as much worth it
no problem man :)
Good build :) and it confused me for a second, you said "4GB all you need" i was thinking uuuhh..... then i look at your parts, might want to clarify that :) other then that good build man +1 :D
well yea, but it'll probably take a while to do so
Well he said steambox so i thought he was running linux, and even with Wine it's such a big hastle, and if it's a steambox he'll be running the setam OS so he'll already have things set up, it's just wether the makers port it to linux or not
Nice build :) you should've gone with at least a semi-modular PSU if your every building in a smaller case, in a full tower it's not as much of a problem. +1 from me though :) have fun waiting until dev's port their games over to linux :p
nice build man :) but ##thatGPUsag
oh yea, that's a really good deal. it's usually $80-90 good find :)
yea man, update that stuff :) and i don't like the air, the 750 is what really spoke to me from corsair, and the new 760T, and it's a really great site :)
No problem :D
Bringing that i7 over was a good choice, and going with the Z77 chipset was good because the Z87 just isn't what you need. 8Gb for $40? damn. good deal :) Rocking that 760 eh? +1
Good build man, great deal on the 280X! the Define R4 is a great case, but i personally don't like it, but it's still good :) do you plan on doing any OC'ing? other then that not much to complain about :) +1
You gotta read peoples descriptions man :)
Good build man :) until i looked at your parts i thought that was a 750D! they sure really did make it a mini version. Liking the build, but i do think the fans were a bit excessive. The 660 is still a great card, so +1 on your build :)
well damn :L that's still good :) 600MHz faster then standard, although with the new 5th gen chips that's only going to be about 300Mhz faster, but still good :)
Ah, i've never heard of them. i'll have to do some research on them, but why DID you get that HDD? Only one available or something like that?
Now that i think about it, it really isn't because of the fact that it's an IPS pannel, that's what confused me a bit. Usually TN pannels are a bit cheap
It is, i plan on doing the Black and Red version, and are you talking about getting the 410?
Nice, and damn. I'm in highschool so i'm a bit broke /.\ i haven't dared looking at even a 770 lol so i don't really know the prices for 780's
Good build man :) +1 i know what you feel, i'm in highschool too and i'm starting to save up for my build, and $170 for a ~24"? damn. a bit pricy
Nice man :) how's the 27" doing? and can't wait to see your 780 Ti :) +1
I must ask, I've never heard of Inno3D. Who is that? otherwise good build. Why the 1KRPM HDD? for that much you could've either spent it for a better SSD, just saved that much money, or went with 2 or 4 more TB of sotrage. Other then that, good build man +1
Good build man, +1 whenever you can go for a 760 so you can SLI it because the 750/750Ti is NOT able to, and the 760 is a higher performance card :) and the 410 is a mid tower, try taking a look at some of the full towers lol now THOSE are huge
Naw, the only advantage from the i7 is the HyperThreading. Programs are able to use those extra cores, while games aren't optimized for it so if your primary focus is gaming an i5 is great, and the 4670K is PERFECT, you can OC it and squeeze a litte bit more performance outta it
Haha but what if he needs to use it?
Very nice build +1 Good case, one of my personal favorites besides the H440 from NZXT. what's the speed on those SSD's like? haha and how's that LIGHTNING card going for you? I don't think i'll go for the lightning, seems like too much extra premium
yea, that'd be a good thing to do when you clean it up is tidy it a bit, and i understand. They're good costing and sounding so hell yea
I'm a huge bass head, but that's why i have two Cerwin Vega Re 30's, pretty old but still bangin, i like my headphones to have some bass but i mainly use headphones for gameplay and chat, not music.
Yea, true that. I plan on getting a H440 for my new main build, it's a really good case but it's a bit on the premium side ($120) but i love it and i plan on keeping it for a VERY long time. Can't wait to see the next one man!
I forgot where i read it, but the 430 was a bit dangerous, if it doesn't damage then by no means replace it, but it was just a warning. kinda funny how there's a 430 and a 450W, but i wonder why they don't make the "premium" looking PSU's for the lower watts, just because it's a low-power system i still want it looking nice and not having so much extra un-used power
Keep it going :D starts singing PUSH IT TO THE LIMIT
Like the other guy said, i thought you meant the movie "Her" it's about a guy who dates a computer.... aco taco lol good build :) a case like the Source 210 would've been better for the price, it's a very aggressively priced case with many good features. What's that SATA and Molex chip do? above the HDD cage?
Good build man +1 it makes so much more sense with why you chose AMD over Intel, utilizing those extra cores. But why the Razer Kraken Pro's? I know you said light audio work but they're said to be very bassy and boomy. And a bit more tidying on those cable's wouldn't hurt :)
Ah, we meet again, but this time it's your greatly choiced lower end Girlfriends, build. It seems very suffice for what she will be doing. And yes, a case is a big investment, it's what houses all of your vital components and it's what you'll be looking at every day. Good cchoices on the parts, but the 430 i would be careful on, i forgot who but it wasn't designed by Corsair even though they carry it, there are some dangers with that CX 430, i'd reccomend getting a different PSU, other then that i think the build is great :) faster ram ~1866 is better to have because of the APU also
i know, he just didn't get that one, i was just saying if he wanted to do some modding and put one in he could've :)
Good choice on the parts and the budget, for a bit i thought the GPU was a 750 haha other then that the only thing i'd have to say is that PSU has to go lol wouldn't want a random fire, other then that +1 :)
