none of the RX's can beat a 1060, 1070, 1080 etc. The RX's are really just budget cards. Does the FX perform better then the Pentium so far??? I've seen benchmark, "on-paper" results but what is the performance like irl?
Great PC but I would have gone for the rx 460 or 470 as they out perform the 1050ti by far (in 70% of games).
I completely agree, where can I get a desk like that???
It is for what you are running.
What? why such a powerful PC for running a ******* browser game?
Is this a "gaming"pc or is this a "I have good parts so I can type spread sheet @ 4K" pc?
Nice PC what kind of games does your son play?
Oh yeah a 1060 is perfect speaking of which it has released!
I would go for NVIDIA as well as their software is a lot better and AMD has not been getting a good rep recently.
What resolution do you play at?
Well with 1080p textures, game saves etc. I have used 1TB of my 4TB HDD and I only use my SSD for important stuff like OS.
Maybe I just play too many games and should do some more studying because exams don't pass themselves :P
Nice PC but I feel like everyone uses that HDD and I just don't know why 1TB use to be good but now if you don't want to get a Hard Drive in 3 months then I would go for a 2TB-4TB as they are still relatively cheap if you know where to buy.
Why 2 RX 480 in the future 2 graphics cards for 2-Way SLI does not improve performance at all...
The teal case is awesome and would suit some blue LED strips inside the case
Dual GPU does not affect graphics capability by a lot if you want something with extra power compared to a 980ti go for the 1070.
I have heard they are great GPU for 1440p gaming but then again so is a 980ti the 1070 just has better architecture and power consumption and a tiny little bit more power. so stick with the single 980ti if you are using one monitor.
Yeah it is always good to have that extra bit of power for future proofing.
That is true.
Great budget gaming PC build for sure I don't think I could do better myself finding parts.
I would recommend a 1060 build when it releases but until then maybe a GTX 970 build?
Great PC and a good choice for most parts only that there are 2 issues that can be easily fixed for this PC.
(Mainly to do with bottle necking.)
First of all the 500GB HD will fill up very quickly especially for gaming considering with that GPU PC you will most likely game at 1080p high FPS - 2K low FPS;
So recent AAA games with 1080p plus textures will use around 18GB - 80GB so a 1TB and up hard drive would be recommended.
Lastly, I find that today a GTX 980 and up is not needed for 1080p gaming and I personally use a Geforce GTX 970 as it can run any games I throw at it at ultra settings.
(e.g. The Witcher 3, Rainbow Six Siege, Assassins Creed Syndicate, Fallout 4, Battlefield 4, and others.)
Apart from those small things that can be easily fixed it is a great gaming PC build for sure and with a great name to fit.
What game is she playing?
If you are going to upgrade her to an RX480 then get at the very least a high-end i3 or i5, i7 would be unnecessary.
Definitely, do not stick with the Pentium as there will be extreme bottlenecking if you get the RX480.
Also get an SSD even if it is a 100GB one just make sure to have on for game saves, OS etc, Incase anything feels like failing.
