no, i just happen to like un-buggy systems
no probs mate.
XD, its true tho, red vs blue all the way. red always wins.
umm, sorry, i have cert 4 in it, i just wanted to see how my designs hold up against the standard, if you have a problem contact my boss. AMD and Intel are not the same in any way shape or form. Difference 1. AMD has higher temps. Difference 2. AMD has better performance per $ Difference 3. i have never had a buggy AMD chip.
it is true games mostly support 4 cores. this is great because i can use the other 2 cores for torrenting and things while gaming. (i know how this **** works)
edit*1, amd has way better in game performance for rts and fps games. i dont know what youre tripping on but get your head out of the clouds mate, AMD is where its at
edit*2 sorry about that, im kinda annoyed atm, have a sale gone bad, (intel cpu)
hemhem, what weak cpu?
and i have had 2 amd cards burn out on me previously, dont want another. have done many NVIDIA cards aswell, no burnouts.
cores doesnt really mean much when you look at a cpu. but yes the 6300 will be more than enough for most next gen games. if youre not sure about it then check the specs on gamedebate, its great
about a cpu cooler. you dont need one, its just that the stock amd one is throw it in the bin bad. use this one, its cheap and great. https://au.pcpartpicker.com/part/cooler-master-cpu-cooler-rr212e20pkr2
about the 280X, youre not downsizing by getting a different brand of 280X. the brand literally means what cooler they put on it (yes and minor overclocking) to put it into perspective. if your ram and gpu swapped places. it is like having 192 gb ram worth of graphics and a gtx 660 worth of ram. you get what im trying to say?
about ram, 8 gig of ram is more than enough for most games, but if you want lagless playing on the performance side (not visual lag). you should go 16. yes it is easy to add ram later, it is also easy to add gpu power. 8 gig is great for most games but things like arma 3, and injustice gods among us will love 16 gigs of ram.
you didnt downsize gpu power, only price. more ram for next gen gaming, get the cpu cooler. go for an NVIDIA card if possible, more reputable and beter life. gtx 770 will be fine.
usually when people sell secondhand cards its for a reason, think of that one. To be totally honest with you, if he plays steam games. use NVIDIA. if you use UPLAY. go AMD GPU. they are better for different platforms.
and there it is, a team blue member. now dont you get me started on INTEL. yes gtx has slightly better with intel, but amd gpus are the other option..... ugh...
the stock cooler for AMD cpus is really really bad, i mean like to the point of just pulling it out bad.
Looks great man, cant wait to see how it turns out.
P.S., love the cpu and cooler combo, have used it many times before will be great!!!
it is actually compatible, i have a friend who did this same case and cpu, the reason i didnt use the evo is that this one is more expensive and gets far better cpu temps, is there any other problems with the build aside from that?
oh and the psu, i know a guy who knows a guy etc. who works with a pc company who gave me a good deal if i bought the whole system. :) love him
Most games only utilise 2GB of graphics power. aside from that HE DOES NOT NEED A 280X. he could save some cash and get a 750TI which is less powerful, but far more than adequate. 8 GB is fine for now, and DDR4 is a long way off mate. i was just pointing out that FX 6300 is, more than enough, so is a 750TI. he doesnt need these extra parts. NVIDIA is honestly the safer option when it comes to graphics anyway.
"at least you didn't reccomend intel"
Go with a FX 6300 cpu, save some cash to get an aftermarket cooler. any cooler would be fine. otherwise it looks great.
Yes but overkill on gpu, means bottlenecking at ram and cpu points. 8GB is sufficient but futureproofing says go at least 12. yes the 280X is a great gpu but honestly, he wont use all of its potential. look at the list. where is the weakest point? ram. where is the strongest? GPU. with computer builds you always try to balance your parts so that there isnt delays etc...
Great build. 2 Problems straight away though. 1)no cooling, mate you need fans and an aftermarket cooler would work like a charm for this build. 2)parts sourced from everywhere. try and get them all from the same place, might cost you a few $$ more but in the end you get the advantages of just one store to go and shout at.
you may want to check out MSY computer store, good prices and local. they should have good deals, and they have great warranties and customer service.
other than that. great build.
Go for a FX 6300, cheaper and still great gaming performance, you will then have more cash to spend on your AFTERMARKET COOLER. The gpu seems like absolute overkill with only 8GB ram. so maybe sacrifice a little gpu power for more ram. it will be worth your while.
other than that, it looks like a great build. cant wait to see it come together.
well, nvidia is great for gpus, but in the area of cpus, i believe amd reigns high. even though they run a little hot, with an aftermarket cooler you dont need to worry, did i mention that AMD has much better gaming performance?.
My point is, you're running a budget build, ant trying to use an intel processor, sorry mate but AMD is what you'll want to get if you are doing high gaming. and it will definately last untill 2K16.
oh, ok then.thats kinda sad.
yeah, i've done custom water before so it shouldnt be that much of a step up.
i have custom looped in the past but they are just so unpredictable. i am actually considering a mineral oil machine
I know where you're coming from, Sorry to bother you but the psu is still model 'M' the picture was different and i gor confused. i dont know if it is possible but can you add msy to pcpartpicker? it is just a more reputable store with cheap parts?
i offer my condolences, team blue was always destined to lose the war.
thanks, i hate intel,
overpriced rubbish, amd is so much better for performance in gaming even though it runs a little hot,
Thanks for the advice but i would rather not run a watercooling closed loop in my pc, i have had bad experiences with corsair systems in the past. Do you think i should try another custom loop? or just stay air cooled
wrong psu, the one i am looking for is the non M one, sorry about the other 2, they were hidden from me before :)
the psu i am looking for is the full modular as featured on MSY
closed loop systems are notoriously badly built. go air http://au.pcpartpicker.com/p/7gbvsY would work better
i hate to break this to you, but usee amd. it is so much better and it is cheaper. use amd to finish it off for you
try this sort of thing instead, shuffle around a bit if you want
maybe take a look at this one instead, http://au.pcpartpicker.com/p/7gbvsY
hate most of the build sorry,
i think this one would more than suit your needs
Best thing to do is go air cooled on cpu.
follow this basic build guide
should work better for you
You have to remember though, GTX 660 is slightly better for gaming still if you are using steam,valve games etc.. because they all oriented towards nvidia graphics. even though the scores are lower. try to go nvidia if you can.
SOURCE, years of pc work
just my opinion but maybe a gtx series would work better in this situations, my experience with 660's are great for gaming. it should work a bit better.
