I am fucking overwhelmed.... I am trying to ascend to master race /g/ and I am just totally flabber gasted.
I feel like I have too many options. I hate all these options for master race PC's. I just want a decent PC that can play most games on moderate to high at 60 FPS.
However, I don't have so much capital.... I don't have a good desk, I have no monitors.. no fucking operating system(Windows 8.1 costs like fucking 80 bucks?)
WHat can I do?
Also, is it a good idea to go piece by piece or buy it all at once? Like where the fuck do I start? WHERE TO START? I am on logical increments but then someone on /v/ told me logical increments is dog shit.. others say its godly.. What to believe?
PLease help. I am on a 200 dollar dell laptop right now.
Use PC Part Picker.
Pirate Windows 7.
Buy a single 1080p monitor, shit's cheap and still good.
Intel and Nvidia for gaming, GTX760 will do you just fine.
Go for one of the cheaper i5s.
there is so many fucking choices... I am on PC part picker right now and I just can't decide... like I don't want to purchase old equipment etc.
Its very confusing. I also don't want to spend over 1000 dollars for the whole KIT. As in monitor, actual computer and operating system.
I'll make it simple:
-Pirate windows 7, burn it to a DVD
-Intel if you have money, AMD if you don't
-Nvidia and Radeon are exactly the same besides which gimmicks you want, get either EVGA, Sapphire or ASUS, don't get a shitty cheaper one like Zotac or PowerColor
-PSU: Seasonic or BeQuiet, make sure it's 80+, don't cheap out
-If you want fans get Corsair or Noctua
-You don't need water cooling
-You don't need fast RAM, don't buy one 8GB module, buy 2x4GB
-HDD: Samsung SSDs are cheap and awesome, don't buy Hitachi, you don't need more than 2TB for storage, get a WD or a Seagate Barracuda
-Motherboard: Gigabyte or ASUS only, do not buy MSI.
-Don't forget to redeem your game vouchers
-You don't need anti-static gloves
-Use the pea method if you apply thermal paste
My personal favorites:
-CoolerMaster 212 EVO, $30 CPU cooler.
-Samsung 840 EVO 250GB, was $90 last I looked
-Corsair SPEC is a really good $50 case
-A Sapphire 270X with an FX6350 will run 90% of games in Ultra at 1080p with the AA turned down
-A 750ti is the ultimate low-end card
You start by determining your budget. Logical Increments has sections for monitors and mice too. Beyond that, use a little common sense. Do you know enough to overclock? No? Then don't get components meant for overclocking (unlocked processors, third-party coolers, cases with a dozen fans). Do you care about posting battlestation pics on 4chan? No? Then check craigslist for people putting shitty desks on the curb and go carry one home.
Don't buy the computer itself piecemeal. Make a plan, take a day to reflect on it and then execute. You can pick up little shit like furniture and peripherals as they become available.
Yeah but you can pay less for your CPU, a lot less. That factors into the price.
I'm not being an insufferable faggot and including the electricity bill like some people who fuck their own sisters do.
Electricity tends to be pretty cheap in places where people fuck their own sisters. Something about all of that coal and very few schools ends up propping up the power industry. And incest.
does anyone have any ideas on which case to pick?
I will explain what confuses me mostly.... Buying a case, motherboard and CPU. THose 3 things confuse me alot because there are a lot of choices.
Here is what I would like to ideally do with my computer
Stream video games on twitch
Play most games on medium or high settings
I find I like the processor intensive games more than anything?
is this actually a good build? SOme guy posted it in this thread... its actually right in the price range of what I wanted to spend on my computer. I am wondering... would this be easy to upgrade? Basically, I am looking for a entry level computer with room to grow. I am afraid of not being able to upgrade is all.
Post a thread on tomshardware forum for details but basically for gaming you want
I5 4440 or i5 4690
Asus gigabyte or msi for motherboard. You don't need a Z board since I doubt you will over clock
R9 280x gpu at minimum. Don't get a 2gb card.
500_600watts from Antec Seasonic XFX EVGA or Corsair AX power supply .
8gb ram 1600mhz min.
case wise.. do I want mid tower or full tower? Basically, I just want room to upgrade.. thats what I really want. Room to fucking upgrade over time. I would happy spending 600 dollars total for the computer itself and then down the line putting more into it.
I've only had two cases. Spec 01 and fractal design core 3000. They were both "mid" towers and they both support full ATX (standard) motherboard sizes. Full towers are fucking huge lol.
Use PC Part Picker. It will help guide you and make sure you don't fuck up buying incompatable shit.
Full is bgger than mid. They are pretty big. Mid is fine for you I'm sure, so either works. Mid = cheaper usually
Are you retarded? It's autist parrots like you who help user make wrong poorly informed desicions. If I wasn't on my phone I would take more time to rip you a new one but I cant.
The 750ti is great ONLY CONSIDERING THE LOW POWER DRAW. For the HP bestbuy PC equipped with a 350watt shit power supply the 750ti is a dream come true .
For any real gaming purposes (you are building an entire rig for gaming afterall) you you want NO LESS than an R9 270X (which would wipe the fucking ground with a 750ti). 280 or 280 gives you 3GB of GDDR5 Ram which makes you 1080p future proof a bit. (And at at a good price too). If you have enough dough get a GTX 970 .
Get on toms hardware you will get real help there. It's difficult on 4 chan to get..urrr..clear answers.
got another question.... Monitors. What is a good brand of monitor? I honestly just want to join the 60 FPS master race and 1080P and such. Which monitor.
I have heard of weird things like vertical tearing and such? What exactly is it?
Just want to jump in to say I was building my own and the parts I used matched up almost exactly with >>45371068 minus the Kingston RAM and a 260X instead of 270X to save dough.
It'll be good to finally get off this 8 year old beast.
