Expensive case, expensive fans, mid range priced motherboard. Terribly unbalanced build.
CF 280x and a Pentium... What?
Cube cases <3
I will downvote until interior pictures are uploaded.
Awesome rig dude, but I feel like two 770's is a tad bit too much for BF4, Smite. But what do I know? :p Awesome build!
Never mind me, 20+ hours of no sleep and about 6 cups of coffee xD Still, nice build :p
Hell yeah, another person that got a 280x before the price drop! Lucky up. :p
I really hate using ISO adjustment. With my a77, it's so hard to be able to push the ISO pass 3200 and have quality left over. All the shots were taken at 1/100 and ISO 1000.
Haha, thanks! I'll try and update the photos over the next day or so, maybe take it out to my patio for a real quick shoot. :p
I'm trying to see if I can find something to hold it up. It may come to that I tie a string to it and put it through the mesh on the top of my case, if nothing else works, haha. :p
Oh, always. At the least, I'm not upgrading my system for probably three years, except for adding another SSD in somewhere down the road.
It's not just for Photoshop now, I'm trying to get my hands on some particle simulators for C4D to make my life somewhat easier for a few things :p
Thanks, I did try my best with what I had.
Well, only until Christmas c: He'll be getting three new friends. ;)
I could take more pictures if you'd like.
LED panels for my camera didn't come yet, and had to rely on my one 50watt bulb on my ceiling for lighting. Thanks for the +1 :3
Fake until pics or didn't happen.
It's just that Raidmax isn't a very trusted brand. I'd personally recommend a cx430 from Corsair, or any PSU from their CX line, as they're reasonably priced for their reliability.
Look at that big mess of cables you have in the front, interrupting the intake of the case, and what seems to be, the only intake. I'd say you're lowering airflow into the case by about 30-40 percent, which is not good for your components. You won't be saying 'YOLO' when your parts start overheating.
So instead of being the bigger person, you decided to stoop to their level? Good going.
You said nothing about playing the game at 720 in the description.
1st, You didn't have to be so rude, 2nd, 60fps on 720p is not a hard feat to do.
World's sexiest monitor.
Could have lived without the h80i and the SSD, and could have gotten a 660, possibly a 660ti if you got creative.
...That will have import tax.
Well, seeing as you saved yourself about 80-90 dollars off the original final price, I think you did an extremely good job. :p
For about 650 bucks (Excluding monitor and OS), this is a really good build for the price. +1, and if I could, +2. EDIT: And excluding the Blu Ray drive, about 550, great price to performance.
You're right, it's a GD65 GAMING board.
If you want to clean up the cable management, since your PSU cables aren't very long, you can buy extensions from places like FrozenPC and Bitfenix for about 9 dollars per cable.
It's pretty funny how you say that, even though you paired up an i7 with a 7770.
Yeah, that's my fault, I didn't realize it wasn't released yet. My apologies.
Shoulda got a Corsair Force/Neutron SSD to complete the Corsair ensemble ;) Nice build!
It may be my really bad eyesight, but is your GPU sagging a bit?
660ti not good enough for gaming?
Just add another in for an SLI configuration.
.... Ooooorrrr, he can use whatever he wants.
Orrrrrr, he can use whatever he wants.
That'd be cool, I'm currently at Full Sail University in Florida, and it's a great experience. :)
No problem, always glad to help another graphic designer :D
Well, since you live in NZ, maybe go with the i5 for now, and maybe upgrade to i7 later down the line. i5 will still give you great performance, an i7 would just do it a bit better.
I'd definitely go with 16 gigs, even if it's out of your budget for a 3D rendering machine, you NEED all the ram you can get. Also, try to get it in a 2x8 configuration, so you could upgrade to 32 gigs later.
I'd personally get a 3770k, and OC to at least 4ghz. Make sure you get enough RAM though. And a 760 will be fine.
Yeah, there is.
How is this bad for a slightly more than $300 build? You must have pretty high standards.
Well, my friend plays Crysis 3 on his G870, so. :)
2 760s > 780 for $150 less.
It's not that this build is bad, it's just the part choices are just... odd. 8gb, you could have gotten for about $70-$80 right now, and you could have gotten a decent 64gb SSD boot drive and a 7950.
Or better yet, a 7950/70.
He may have modded it.
