Then 650w should do you plenty
Most of if not all of Corsair PSUs are good. So yeah that should be fine. Planning on doing SLI or overclocking?
Why all the downvotes? But yeah, 650w should do fine. I didn't really get a good look at the case though, thought there was an absence of one, my bad
It looks like its running itself to about 80% capacity, granted thats not a bad number, but when you have about 100 watts to spare its better just to get a new power supply at that point. Your BIOS should be fine unless you are running into issues. And a case is recommended, or a test bench, just something to make sure your parts are well protected and grounded. Wouldn't want anything happening to them
Well thats not blue at all. Turns on OH, well then.
Joking aside, I would have gone onto Reddit Trade Software and get some keys from there, with the money you saved you could have put a little more umph into your GPU, or at least tone down the MB a little bit. Either way, nice build +1
Damn you and your nearby Microcenter, that is the epitome of building computers. Either way, nice work, I li- love it, and I am pretty jealous. +1
Uses EVGA and Noctua branded products in build, uses Cooler Master power supply. Oh, so thats how it is? +1, I love it
Needs a better description, why no Haswell refresh? Better pics, 750Ti? Its kinda meh, will rate when description is provided
Mother of god... Its so beautiful
Cable routing and zipties will be your best friend. Apart from that nice work +1
Depends, do you overclock or worry about heat?
Imma have to agree with Juheebus (Seriously?). Custom water cooling is probably the best solution for the build, I mean, its just so beautiful. It would complement it sooooo well.
My only complain is the $85 sound card. But all in all its pretty good +1
You want to give it the (D:)?
--Damn fine build good sir. However I probably would have went an 840 Pro or 840 Evo. Less storage, but some better read and write performance.
--The case is pretty good, but I woulda went with a more reliant manufacturer: Corsair, Thermaltake, Bitfenix etc.
--I probably woulda traded the 4770k for a 4670k. No multi-threading, but you wont need that unless you are video editing.
--And then set the extra $100 towards the 4gb model of the 760. Since some games are starting to utilize more than 2gbs And then went with Gigabyte with their 3 fan design which can reduce temps by a little on idle, and a bit more under load.
However a great build and I like it alot. +1
I am pretty sure he thinks the PS4's 8gb of VRAM is going to make it outperform this. While 8gbs is pretty substantial, it doesn't mean **** if you aren't using a multi monitor display and the game wont bottleneck at your clock. Anyways, besides the point. Its a troll
Agreed. I remember the day he got it. Didnt include screws, extra cables, or anything. iBuyPower just pockets it and probably sells it back. However refer to my comment towards Duelix if you have any other statements/concerns
Wasn't built by me because I wasnt into computers at the time. However I agree with that statement entirely. Something to take note of is that he was working full time construction and going to college full time. So he didnt have time to learn the things that I have learned. However I am making damn sure I am building his next PC
Look, when you order the parts, want the parts, and buy the parts, you can call the shots. Until then, please take your negative comments elsewhere unless you intend to list some tips or anything of that nature
To each his own. I do remember the customer speaking of doing that or making a reference towards it, which is why it seemed like a viable option
In reference to what I said in the description, it had a great amount of USBs for its price which the customer wanted. It was also on sale for a decent price as well
Mistakes were made no doubt, should be fixed next time around
Well that, and better frames on the newer games as well. This card received much better frames than my 2gb 770
He wanted a futureproofed build that would last him awhile. Even if he doesnt play highly demanding games now, I cant say the same thing for 5 years down the road. Even then, he does video editing. Even the best APUs wouldnt help you much in that category. Granted the 4gb was a little much, however more and more games are starting to use more VRAM. So it seemed like a great option for the future. In reference to one of my previous comments

I have actually never custom sleeved a cable so I wouldnt know hehe. But the modular was on sale for a pretty good price compared to what it normally is. Just seemed like a really good option for me
Oh well, his request not mine. However thanks for the tips
I tried to do my best with what I had, however there just wasnt enough slack in some of the cables. So that was the best I could do. However from that angle it does look very sloppy
I liked the high cache it had personally, but I will take the 840 EVO into consideration next time. Thanks for the tip
Oh gotcha. In any event, I did not intend for my initial statement to be derogatory in any manner, my apologies. It just appeared off to me with the match up of parts. I will try to word my review more to the gesture I wish to have made
It was a need as well. I am in high school and I couldnt work or have time due to studies and homework. So it was a do or die at that point
I wanted an expensive Blu-Ray drive because I wanted to keep using it forever and ever until it broke. If I were to build another computer I could use a few parts from this one and save money. That was the idea I had in mind
Yeah. Its a steel frame wire mesh shelf. It could hold 40 pounds and the build itself is a little less than 30. It SHOULD be fine, but thanks for the concern
Yeah. I am hoping to get a different CPU down the road. But I only had enough money for a 3770 and I wasnt planning to overclock anyways. I know its an overclocking motherboard, but I will upgrade in the future
Yeah, down the road I am going to get dual channel 16gb ram sticks. The build was kinda rushed though. I wanted it done by the end of the summer and I was running out of time
Yeah, there are a few things I could have done differently. There is also a lot of room for improvement. There is always next time though
I cant wait for it to come out :D
According to the 3DMark 11 benchmark, an Intel Core i7-3770 with a Geforce GTX 680 2GB is the best combination on the market. I have a 750w power supply that will go towards future builds. The cooler is for "if" I overclock as well. And I coulda swore the case was of suitable size for 2 video cards.
As an owner of a NZXT 410 Phantom case, I suggest you get some powerful fans. As with the case, it tends to collect dust pretty easily especially on the motherboard and I clean it every 2 months.
I personally don't like the choice of case. The power buttons tend to have problems sticking and the front panel requires a decent amount of pressure to open. The inside also seems to collect a great deal of dust within a small period of time.
