So it's never worked. Is this a custom build? Is it new parts? Are there any used parts? Have you been able to test the psu, cpu, gpu, or ram on any other computers?

Also have whem you start the pc with the mobo inside is it vertical every time have you tried to start it with the pc on its side?

Also when handling the parts did you have it on an anti static mat or have an anti static wrist attachment, or constant touch the psu during the assembly and disassembly?

Type Item Price
CPU Intel Core i5-6600K 3.5GHz Quad-Core Processor $254.99 @ Amazon

If it were up to me I'd get a i-7 6700k for the extra $110 but the i-5 6600k will work fine. I'm a fan of the best parts you can get. But as it stands now there isn't too much performance in gaming difference between broadwell, haswell, skylake, and haswell-e, CPU's. youtube video But if you are ever looking to overclock the cpu you will want an intel cpu with a K at the end of it.

CPU Cooler | Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler | $25.89 @ OutletPC

You can upgrade this at any time, I'm running a Corsair H110i for overclocking and amazing cooling but you want a budget build and this is a decent air cooler.

Motherboard | MSI Z170 Krait Gaming ATX LGA1151 Motherboard | $139.99 @ SuperBiiz

Just a decent cheap mobo and it's pretty

Memory | Kingston HyperX Fury Black 8GB (1 x 8GB) DDR4-2133 Memory | $49.99 @ Newegg

When it comes to memory you will only really need 8gb for just about any games, I always buy my memory in the 8gb individual form so you can always just buy more 8gb to add more, one thing is to make sure to always run the same type of memory in your computer at the same speeds when you buy more in the future

Storage | Seagate Barracuda 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive | $44.89 @ OutletPC

Cheap 1tb storage, if you want a super fast boot you can run a cheap 60gb for your os to run on

Case | Thermaltake Commander MS/I Snow Edition (White/Black) ATX Mid Tower Case | $27.99 @ Micro Center

pretty cheap case matches the mobo

Power Supply | Corsair 750W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply | $139.99 @ Amazon

When it comes to PSU you want a decent psu, in the corsair world the RMi is the best right now forum on it

Prices include shipping, taxes, rebates, and discounts
Mail-in rebates -$30.00
Total $683.73

it's 83.73 more but I would rather sacrifice a couple hundred bucks on something that is better and will be something i used for a long time

Yes, this system should be able to run fallout 4. The major computer componets that affect your gaming is really just the GPU.

The Intel Core i5-4690K is an overclockable CPU and even when it's not overclocked it should not bottle neck your 750ti and the 750ti should run most games pretty smoothly at max graphics around 40-80 fps.

If you don't want to got with the Haswell 1150 socket and go with a skylake 1151 you could do that too. It requires ddr4 ram and a different motherbord. I just don't see too much of an improvement in the stats comparing them yet. Like at max a 10% increase I'll make a 1151 build for you too.

There are a few factors that affect FPS when gaming. This should help you get a little edjucated on building a computer.

1) GPU architecture

The general rule of thumb when it comes to determining the effect of a particular graphics card's attribute to its performance is as follows, from most influential to least influential:-

The amount of Shaders/CUDA cores (as compared to the same family/generation of cards),

followed by the card's ROPs,

Shader/Processor/CUDA core clocks,

Memory Type (Dedicated, or Integrated) and Interface (64, 128, 256 and 384 bit) ,

Memory Speeds (clocks) and Generation (DDR3, GDDR3, GDDR5) and

finally, the Amount of Memory (512 MB - 3 GB).

When you compare the GTX 560 and GTX 580, you have to note that the 580 has a higher number of CUDA cores (512 cores) as compared to the GTX 560 Ti (384 cores) and the 560 (336 cores).

This indicates that the even if the GTX 580 is lower clocked than the GTX 560 variants, (recalling the hierarchy listing, number of Cores>Core clocks), the 580 will still perform better, resulting in a higher FPS count for the GTX 580.

To summarize, get a Graphics card with many cuda cores/shaders, one with at least a 256 bit memory interface and one with 2 - 3 GB of GDDR5 RAM

Another way of quickly determining the prowess of a card based on its model number is to look at the second digit of the number, given that the the cards in the comparison are of the same generation.

Example:- GTX 580 vs GTX 560, 8 is higher than 6 so 580 is more powerful

2) CPU Clocks and Architecture

Although most games and 3D applications are GPU limited (which means that they can only run as fast as your graphics card can perform, and the CPU doesn't really affect the speed), there a few that require the CPU heavily for additional functions, like multi threaded physics simulation calculations, and threaded AI.

Notable examples in which your CPU might heavily affect your FPS is in strategy based, AI heavy games like Civilization V, and Battlefield 3 with it's dynamic multi-threaded renderer

In this case, the superior CPU would be one with at least quad cores and lots of Level 1/2/3 cache plus an IMC (Integrated Memory Contoller, reduces RAM access latency. All Intel CPUs since the Core i series and AMD CPUs since the Athlon 64 have this built in.).

Hyperthreading is also a bonus to have but it's effect varies from game to game. (the Core i7/i5 series by Intel and the Bulldozer series by AMD)

3) Your RAM amount and speed

Your game requires system RAM to run optimally.

Insufficient system RAM could lead to parts of the game being sent out to the pagefile on your HDD which would lead catastrophic loss of performance and FPS, and/or stuttery performance. (the game is trying to load assets from the HDD instead of the system RAM which is a few orders of magnitude faster than your spinner)

RAM Speeds are also important but the margins of improvement in your FPS are not as noticeable when using slower RAM but sufficient RAM as compared to if you have insufficient RAM

Get at least 8 GBs for a 64 bit OS, 16 GB (or as much as your motherboard supports) to be future proof.

4) Your HDD type (SSD vs HDD)

Games that rely on streaming in assets continuously to the system RAM/VRAM (Video RAM) will perform better on a SSD as compared to a conventional HDD.

Examples include games that use the Unreal Engine 3 middleware such as Gears of War PC, and Mass Effect 3

5) Background Applications and other Antivirus Scanners (AVs) and Scanners

Having a high number of background programs and parasitic applications will of course lower your FPS due to resource contention.

If you want the absolute fastest FPS count during gaming, shut down all unnecessary tasks and programs before starting the game to ensure that the PC will dedicate all its resources to the game.

Set AVs into gaming mode if available and disable active real time malware scanning while gaming.

This (disabling protections for AVs) of course doesn't apply to online gaming.

6) Drivers

Having old and outdated drivers will reduce your FPS.

The latest drivers for your card are usually the best, unless there are specific issues pertaining to the card/game for that particular driver

7) Other things to look out for when looking for a graphics card.

Power requirements (Do I have a PSU strong enough to handle this graphics card? How many 6 pin PCI-E connectors will i need to power this card and do i have them?)

Dimensions (How many slots will it occupy in the case?, Will it fit my case?)

Manufacturer warranties (Terms? 1 year? 3 years? The longer the better. What are the RMA policies in case of breakdowns?),

Cooling systems (how many fans does it have, is it noisy or quiet, fan RPMs, low profile) and

Overclocking status (Is it factory overclocked? How far can it be pushed?)

Always check out reviews from reputable sites like HardOCP for a preliminary look at how the card you're interested in will perform for you and the reviewer's experience with the card.

There're quite a few more but i think this should get you started.

Hope that answers your queries! If you have further enquiries, don't hesitate to post them in this thread.

Thanks, I was going for mostly black with small red accents. I did some research on the Mobo you recommended and there isn't a lot of info on it. Do you have any experience on it. The only reviews I've found on it are... meh.

I was going to decided to go with the HX850i. I was reading about how the AXi allows for extremely detailed digital monitoring of voltage, amperage, and efficiency, with amperage in particular monitored on a per-cable, per-rail basis.. But to be honest I probably won't need to do any of that and that the tried and true standard here is your power use it type of psu is fine. Then I read on this site overclock.net HMi vs RMx how the HXi compared to the RMx and well.. apparently they are saying the RMx is overall better. So Thanks!

Is the psu upgrade your main reccomendation, you said to go with the RMX 850? Isn't the AX series better than the RM series? Should I go AXi 860? Or does it not really matter? Or are you just saying get more watts?

Also I noticed you put a different Mobo, is that because you know it's better or just cheaper?

And the Optical; better, cheaper, just because?

And started googling and came across the MSI/Corsair SeaHawk and noticed it has great reviews and high benchmarks and can be overclocked a lot. Also Corsair is great for memory and psu, soo i was like. meh why not. So i got the MSI Mobo to match the GPU and said this is it. I think it'll be pretty good. I just wonder if I should go for cheaper parts that'll do the same or stick with all Corsair. I mean Corsair is pretty good quality right? And somewhat dependable I think.

Based on that video it looks like there is definitely no need to upgrade from a 4790. The 5820 was slower than the 4790 in some and the 6700 seemed to be just a little above like an average of 3 fps and that's not even noticeable but I mean I guess I could go for this build. It's not like it's more expensive and will run a newer cpu and the mobo would support any possible upgrades to the 1551 socket.

I could swap out the ssd for a cheaper one but the Neutron is red and matches and also is kind of pretty..... also it's supposed to be competitively faster compared to some of the cheaper ssd's out there.

Thanks, that was something i was very curious about. So what You are saying is if I were to sli the SeaHawk I'd have to customize my tubing? I do have dreams of doing a SLI eventually so if I'm gonna spend the 700 bones on a gpu i want to make sure not to waste it. I guess i was going for more of an all corsair build in my build just cause. I mean I did do a lot of research and ironically all the corsair equipment had extremely high and most times out performed the competition. But i'm beginning to wonder if going for an all Corsair Build is really worth it. Thanks for the help

That's how I felt. The difference is just a little bit

I will be overclocking, and I do want to do some pretty detailed video editing eventually. I just read that upgrading to the 6600k from the 4790k isn't really that much of an upgrade as for cpus. Currently they say at most it's a 10% increase. And actually in some benchmark tests for gaming the 4790k out performed the 6600k. Is the reason why everyone is telling me to upgrade to the 6600k just because of the ddr4? Or is it just because we will eventually be moving towards the LGA1151 Socket.

Oh, Thanks. I want to be able to have 4k for sure! I also want to make my rig a media center for movies. I also want to game, stream, and video edit. So i guess I should spend the $2-$3k

I guess a real question is how much better would a $2000 or $3000 computer be rather a $500 or $1000
