Love it, have been wanting to get ahold of an older 90's case and do something similar. That 860k and RTX 470 should shred through just about any game you throw at it. I've been benchmarking my 860k and RX 460 to show others how capable it is, let me know if you have any interested in seeing what a budget rig similar to yours can do!
someone could make a killing if it were
you are correct, the is an AMD cooler/motherboard. i smell ********.
Sounds like the decision was out of his control
Did you read the description?
Holding out for Zen, hopefully i can get another 8 core/thread with better IPC and stay with team red.
i got my 8320e for $50, best $50 i spent since i was 21, can record, stream, encode, browse AND play games with no issues. i don't need Ultra settings, hell even low is better than consoles in most games. just gimme 1080p and 60fps and i am happy and this chip delivers, folks shouldn't believe all the reviews and benchmarks. Dont get me wrong, i have an i3 that gets just as good fps in most games, but it cant multitask to save its life, and it cannot replace my 8 cores/threads.
With DX12 mine has really been impressing me!
I'm in love with this MB
I am sorry to hear that man :( are you sure 2GB is going to be enough?
Wonderfully, i play Forza Horizon 3, Cities: Skylines, Stellaris, Killing Floor 2 and Ashes of the Singularity on it. I love the card and at the price i got it i have zero complaints. Very capable console replacement.
Have an 860k paired with an RX 460 and can vouch for it's potency. just because there is no upgrade from here does not mean it is bad, it works just fine ;)
Some folks cannot wait
Mine can run 4.4Ghz all day long
Cool, thanks for your input buddy
Bandwidth is fine, thinking of just slapping all my HDD's in there, running the 8320e with the RX 460 and calling it a day. I have on average 2-4 streams at once.
that is what i was thinking, but i too am stumped on the PLEX. all the videos are optimized so transcoding would be minimal.
After kicking the cats out of the room my accidents decreased by quite a bit ;)
Well isn't that snazzy
The 860k and RX 460 are a perfect combination IMO, they compliment each other and neither seems to hold the other back. +1
Nice, hows that 860k holding up with the 470, especially while recording??
Looks good buddy, are you from India?
I saw more stable framerates when i went to the i3-6100, but the lack of more than 4 cores/threads makes a difference in some cpu heavy games. The Division for example i was able to play and record at stable framerates with the 8320e, with the i3-6100 i do see 100% GPU AND CPU load.
Funny, i was just using these same components for a LAN box
AMD A8-7600 (i know i started late)
I went from an 860k to an 8320e to an i3-6100 for my main gaming rig. guess what, they perform the same. i didnt expect that at all. i ended up using the 8320e as a PLEX server and 4x gaming rig and using the i3-6100 as a Steam box.
Gorgeous, minimalist and functional, i dig it
good to know
thanks for the insight
I understand, i also have a habit of buying parts and building random rigs, should see the game room right now, have parts strung out everywhere
I do have an RM750 PSU so i should be good to go but thank you!
Well that is good to know, thank you.
I wish it were. I play Skyrim, Witcher 3 and similar games, do you have an opinion about those? I assume heavy CPU games like BF would show an unbalance.
It does have crossfire branding on the motherboard
All stock at the moment buddy
iirc yes it does
i have two 140mm fans in the front and one 200mm on top and it works well.
I really do love and appreciate builds like this.
Cooler Master was the only brand i know for a fact will fit, I've heard the Bitfenix fans will but i cannot verify
Did you opt for front to back air flow or back to front?
it certainly is
Damn nice, makes me want to build another mini itx
I would probably not have a double chin
It is hard to compare Intel to AMD, they both have their strengths and weaknesses. the 6700 is a $300 chip, for about $100 you can get the 8320E and enjoy 8 cores/threads, lower power consumption than most other 8000 series chips and excellent multitasking and gaming performance. but i cannot compare a $300 chip to a $100 chip. you either sacrifice some performance and save $200 or you pay top dollar for top of the line performance. personally i would rather save $200 and put that towards my GPU and monitor.
