They paid, I played :P
Apparently the locked ones do. at least he 7500 did.
Usually he is running outoook, sage 300, filemaker etc at the same time.
But yeah overkill but they didn't mind paying so I went for it :)
Was gonna get a 750-TI but we only need a GPU to be bale to use 2 monitors and that's it :P
All from home depot and leds from amazon, I'd say ~250$
If you check my build I made my desk out of plumbing pipes, now you've inspired me to do to two piping shelves!
Great looking build from you! GJ!
You should get some filters for your case, keep that dust from killing your rig.
I'd even use the pantyhoes method honestly, it's worth keeping your parts alive and running.
Would have beefed up the PSU a little, just an idea.
Talk about budget lol.
Don't forget to get a bigger power supply. Get 650 at the very least.
I just wanna preface this that I'm juat trying to help out :-)
I saw that you can maybe get an adapter?
I love my 960 too, it's changed the way I play games! And still great build!
On my build I wasn't able to put the CM 212 vertically either :-/. How has this affected your temperatures? M cpu underload is at 44degrees. Haven't measured my gpu yet.
Also do you need that 2nd gpu? I'm pretty sure you can do 2 monitors from the 960 (prolly even 3 monitors) the second gpu seems just extra wattage, space wasted.
Depends which i5 chip your thinking. Honestly at 98$ you can't beat the value of fx6300. If you got i5 it's 100$+ you have to add to your budget. If your are tight on budget the only way I would get an i5 6500/6600k is if I get a better deal on a video card (aka get that sweet 200$ R9 480x) to balance the price a bit. It all depends what is your budget and your expectancy. In my experience with my pc, I play every game at 1080p without a problem, with stock cpu/gpu.
Yes there is a big difference, with 970 u get 4gb ram vs 960 2gb ram. Price ia 173$ for 960 and 279$ for 970. If you can afford to wait a little, get a Amd R9 480X for 200$ which I think will be way better that even a 980.
For cable management get an old CD rack and screw it under your table (look at my build). It was the cheapest way to get a decent result, otherwise get the under rack from IKEA.
Great build btw !
For the PSU, in my opinion get a PSU that is compatible with a case that has an opening under the PSU so you can pull in cold air and exhaust in on the back.
As far as cases go, any will do, dont break the bank on it.
Monitors I'd get a 23inch or dual 23inches. I saw yesterday at bestbuy they had a dell 23inch for 89$ or 99$. Again im on the lookout for a good 23inch monitor myself but I don't know enough about good monitor specs.
I thought when you upgrade to windows 10, you have to pay the upgrade fee aka full price, 1 year after the upgrade.
How come you didn't chose a ssd?
Everything is great, I'd wait for the 1070 also from my experience get the 600w so it leaves you a bit of room if you wanna over lock in future, it's worth the 20$ extra.
Perfectly fine. The 380 does perform slightly better while the 960 is slightly more energy efficent. I got the 960 on a 155$ sale and I had issues with drivers on my last amd card so this time I went for evga 960 ssc. Both would be great for my 1080p gaming, but the 960 won't stress my 500 psu (which I regret not getting the 600w)
Yeah, wish I had done it sooner! The desk for me was almost as important as the PC.
I wanted to be able to hide all the cables from sight, have led's light up when I play at night and also be able to sit comfortably and rest and extend my legs on the frame of the table. It was worth the 250$ it cost me.
You wont have any issues from this SSD. Dont forget to configure your settings that your games and programs (the ones that are storage hungry to be put on your HDD).
Agreed, as long as I can play games smoothly that was my main goal.
Your build looked very nice btw, i like the air venting approach you took, I was thinking of doing the same given how my CPU and GPU fans are positioned. Thoughts?
Currency is dollhairs. Thanks for the info, I saw one the other guy linked for 4.50$ at office depot.
It was a CD holder, so I cut the base and flipped it horizontally. :P
The SSD is good, in retrospect I should have gotten a 240 but then again budget was a big thing.
The speed is great, windows boots in ~10seconds.
I like the case, it has great room for cable and airflow. Easy to put a radiator at the top too, if you need to.
One con is, when I put the PC in sleep, the power LED keeps flashing which can be annoying if you sleep in the same room as the PC.
That sounds great, it bothers me a bit currently in its position, aesthetically speaking.
