let's talk about your machines /g/

i'm gonna order soon these pieces for my first build:

>Video: MSI NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960 4GB (250€)
>Motherboard: MSI B85M-G43 (83€)
>CPU: Intel i5 4460 Quad Core CPU 3.20GHz, 6MB Cache, 84W (190€)
>Memory: Kingston HyperX Fury Kit Memorie DDR-III 16 GB (2x8) (82€)
>Case: Itek Invader R03 Medium (47€)
>power supply: Corsair CX750M, 750 Watt, Semi-Modular (108€)

is it a good start? i'm mainly gonna play games and maybe do some 3D modeling

post yours and give advice please
>>
>>52364309

For 250 € you can get a sapphire 380x. Why would you buy a 960 for 250 €?

Also cash out 10 more € and buy a corsair 100R case.

PSU is too much, but I guess it's okay for future proofing?
>>
>>52364351
actually that's just because i'm used to Nvidia, never had anything different
plus i wanted to get everything on amazon and the 380x is 280€ (i'm a yuropoor)
>>
>>52364376

I would highly recommend you to branch out from amazon for that. Where are you from? In Germany/Austria you can get the 380x for 220-230 for the XFX version and 250 for the Sapphire version.

I would never give 250 € for a 960 since even a normal r9 380 is stronger then a 960.
>>
>>52364424
alright, i put the r380x shappire and a less expensive power supply (Corsair V650 Vs Series ATX 650Watt)
any more suggestions?
>>
>>52364515
If you can try to get a 120gb ssd for boot and load times. Don't listen to /g/ SSDs are amazing and are worthwhile.
>>
>>52364309
Do you have a DVD drive? It's the part everyone forgets about and makes installing the OS and drivers way faster unless you have really good internet and are close enough to the router to run ethernet directly - wifi won't work until you install drivers

>>52364679
Mobo is pretty expensive. PSU is too cheap, probably a piece of shit.
>>
>>52364679

>>52364800
This. Don't buy the cheapest PSU you can find. At best it will have poor voltage regulation that can hurt your components, and at worst it could be a fire hazard. This PSU tier list is your friend:
http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/forum/id-2547993/psu-tier-list.html

>>52364768
Bootable USB is good for the OS, but not drivers. When I built my computer I tried going without a DVD drive, but my internet was so slow downloading drivers I ended up just going to WorstBuy to buy one.
>>
>>52364515
You already changed the two things I would've criticised. What about storage?
>>
>>52364883
i was thinking about a Western Digital 1TB with 64MB Cache
don't really need any more space than that, and it's pretty cheap

Suggestions for cheaper mobo to support ddr3 1866 ram and front panel usb 3.0

>>52364873
>Bootable USB is good for the OS, but not drivers. When I built my computer I tried going without a DVD drive, but my internet was so slow downloading drivers I ended up just going to WorstBuy to buy one.
I don't get it. Downloading the OS takes much longer than the drivers anyway? You transfer the network driver via USB, install that and can download all other drivers directly on your computer. Pretty comfy, if you ask me.
>>
>>52364641
what about an "Asus DRW-24F1MT"? Seems good to me, and it's not too expensive

>>
>>52364916
Good choice. Consider spending 100€ more on a 200GB SSD. Those things are worth their weight in gold if you install your OS and programs on them. A 100GB one would do as well and is cheaper, but it probably wouldn't fit all your gaymes.

Admittedly not a big difference, but you won't ever notice the RAM speed. If you're on a budget, get the cheaper one, if you don't care, buy whichever.
>>
I'm going to buy my first pc but I really don't know if I should still wait for the prices to drop.
Here are the specs:

Current budget is $600 without rebates.
Any tips? Now or Later?

>>52364545
What scares me about them is that I've heard they have a limited lifetime. I know that a poorfag like myself should be ashamed to think 100$ is a lot of money, but I don't want that 100$ to disappear in 6 months or 2 years. 5 years is my minimum lifetime for tech I buy.
>>

I second this starts up and shuts down in less than 5 seconds. Just built my first computer and got a 250gb SSD and a 2tb HDD (apparently the one i got will die in a few years "the HDD" but thats my failt for doing enough research on it)

I had a bootable USB for the OS, but installing drivers was taking ages because of my craptastic internet. That's why I said no need if you have good internet. Depends on your setup, you can make do without, but for $20 it's pretty convenient

>>52364926
Looks like the PSU is tier 3 - safe and stable, but not ideal for high load use like mining or high end gaming. Good enough, but personally I'd choose an EVGA B2 or GS though they are more expensive and more power than you really need.
Not sure about mobo, but if you choose an H97 board instead of Z97 you will save ~$40, but RAM can only go up to 1600 - won't affect gaming but you may notice it a bit in video editing. Otherwise you don't really need the Z chipset with your locked CPU

>>52364979
Any cheap DVD drive is fine, it's more about convenience than heavy use. You can do without one but they are helpful

Yes, lol.

AMD always recommends higher PSUs because they expect all retards to buy cheap ones. That avoids overdraw. I don't know why nvidia doesn't do this either
>>
>>52365308
A spectacularly confusing way of plotting the results. Is that the probability density function (chance of failing at time "t") or the hazard function (chance of failing at time "t" conditional on surviving until time "t"? If it is the PDF, then Seagate failure percentage drops off with time because so many have already failed.

Plotting the cumulative distribution function would have been more meaningful (percent failed by time "t" vs. time "t")
>>
>>52365700
i think that psu is a rebranded seasonic, should be fine
>>
>>52365222
Unless you're building Memelake (which you aren't), I would advise sooner rather than later. DDR3 is in the process of being deprecated, and with offer decreasing, prices for memory and motherboard will probably go up.
>>
>>52365265
The limited lifetime is a meme. Honestly, google it, it's been debunked multiple times. Maybe true for the very first gen, but a mordern SSD will probably last you 10 years.
>>
>>52365265
they are rated to last 5 years while having 20GB written to them per day.

How long do PSUs last? I mean if you treat them well and they're fairly high quality, can I expect them to last at least two motherboard changes?

I really like the motherboard, both in looks and in terms of future proofing. Also,
>implying I don't need liquid cooling
>implying I don't need 64GB RAM
If you're going to say "no difference", don't change the cooler type or the RAM amount.
>>
>>52366061
If you get a good one they last a long time. I have an EVGA G2 (admittedly a higher end PSU) and it has 10 years warranty

Not only does it fit, but my temps are pretty good.
Both of my 120mm radiators from the Hybrid are mounted to the front and get about 55-60 degrees under load (playing Shadow of Mordor at 4K and max settings). The NZXT X61 keeps my overclocked and overvolted CPU at a nice 65 degrees at 100% load (I could get it lower by raising the fan speed to max RPM, mine are capped at 75% RPM). I can't go push-pull on the radiator because the fan shroud gets in the way (they're about half the thickness of a regular fan) and there's no real room for a set of fans above the removable radiator tray on the top.

I believe with a motherboard that supports quad channel memory it's better to have 4 sticks rather than 2, don't ask me why as I don't understand all the jargon but apparantly it's better, doesn't seem like a bad thing if I'm wrong though!

I guess it's also handy if a stick dies.

I'd go with 3 new ones. 2 exhaust including your rear 140mm and one on the top and front 2 intakes. 5 is overkill.

if i wanted to upgrade my rig's mobo to intel, what kind of CPU and Mobo should i get? all the benchmark videos i look at has intel blowing the FX-8350 out the water and lets me play CPU intensive games better. my price range is around 300$-700$

depending on how many pennies you can pinch, either a 4690k+z97 board (get the cheaper ones with non-killer LAN) or a 4790k+h97 board.

if by any chance you find the rare 5775c, get that, a good air cooler, and a z97 board and laugh at everyone who got memed by skylake

>>52368643
My experience with the Phanteks Enthoo Luxe (aka a ritzier Enthoo Pro M) calls for
>2 140mm fans in Intake at the Front at 80% or lower RPM
I'd go for Fractal Design Venturis AF if you're going to remove most of the drive cages or a Cougar 140mm fan if you're going to use over half the drive cages
>360mm radiator or 280mm radiator at the Top
For custom loop radiators, try a 420mm radiator. I'd prefer a 360mm radiator with fans in push-pull or with fan shrouds/gaskets.
Stick with just three 140mm Fractal Design in Exhaust or Noctuas up here, since you're more likely to hear the fans at the top of the case given how close it will be to your ears. Keep them at 80% or lower RPM.
>a 140mm fan in Exhaust at the Back at 75% or higher RPM
Again, Noctuas or Fractals
>2 120mm fans in Intake at the Bottom at 75% or higher
If you don't mind cleaning the dust filters every week, put your highest CFM-rated/sub-32 decibel-rated fans at the bottom. The noise from the bottom of the case is usually not as apparent as the noise coming from the top. I think its the grill that causes a whoosh noise from the top vents.

Upgrading from my shitty 5 year old prebuilt pc that i threw a 6950 into, upgrades are as followed:

CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 955 --> Intel i5 4690k + Corsair H75 Liquid Cooler
Ram: Random 8GB RAM --> 16GB HyperX Fury RAM
Motherboard: Foxconn 2A92 --> MSI z97 KRAIT
GPU: AMD 6950 HD Radeon --> Asus GTX 970 Turbo
PSU: Random PSU I bought from future shop --> EVGA 650W PSU + All white cables
Case: Random HP pavillion case --> NZXT H440
Storage: Random 1TB HDD --> 120GB SSD (for boot) + Seagate 1TB HDD

still need to buy the CPU/GPU/RAM/PSU/HDD but I received my H440 in the mail today, already have the SSD and motherboard waiting to go in. I'm super pumped for my first custom build. How'd I do, /g/?

pic definitely related

>>52375366

Get the SSD, just get a 120GB one for your OS and applications. Games on an SSD is a bad meme.

The 212 is enough for OCing.

skylel i3 should work, you may even save a bit on the 3.5g meme and just get a r9 380 that will handle 1080p just fine.

I'm guesing it's 1080p.

For a couple dozen bucks more you can have a r9 380, not wanting to sound like a shill but AMD offers much better mid range GPUs other than the 950/750ti. Look up benchmarks for your games since I don't feel like it.

Have you considered an i3 4170?
>>
>>52376707
Probably. IIRC Witcher 3/FO4 are badly optimized pieces of shit though, you might be forced into medium settings if you want a recent resolution/framerate. And we don't really know the Specs of DA3, though I imagine they won't be too crazy.

Building a computer for / with my cousin. Budget ~$1000, +/- $300 and needs to be smaller than standard mid tower are the main requirements. Already have an OEM GTX 960 (not sure the model) from another machine, and hard drives. I think he'll appreciate a 256GB SSD for boot, video editing, and asset loading in games. The closed loop cooler will free up a lot space in the case, and make it easier for him to maintain.

Any thoughts? In particular case options. I'm not sure if he'll want an optical drive, external is fine but he might appreciate having an internal one later, for whatever reason (or maybe for a card reader or something).

By non-hidden you mean external? I was going for this one at first...

http://www.microcenter.com/product/448270/Define_S_ATX_Case_w-_Windowed_Side_Panel_-_Black

...due to that store not having the Rosewill brand for some reason. That store actually has a retail location within mass transit distance and has prices a bit lower then what Amazon and Newegg offers, so I want to get as few parts online as possible. Much faster that way once I take the plunge on this later this year.

So I basically have two lists, both incomplete. The PCPP build list and the MicroCenter wishlist. Both have slightly different parts due to stuff at the latter not being featured on the former, so I have to cross-reference manually. Especially when it comes to price.

On an online retailer, so that's one part I'll have to wait on unless there's a brand with 5.25'' eternal bays as reliable as Fractal Design or Rosewill.

Speaking of parts, what's the story behind this?

At first I thought the only drawback was the PCIe slots not being 3.0 but 5 star ratings are only 66% accounted for, and recent reviews state it either arrived dead or died within days. Thought Asus was a reputable motherboard manufacturer.

If thats gonna be your case then id change it for something more sleek and mature unless you really like that one. One day you probably wont like it any more for being a Transformer flashy gamer looking toy thing

I'm not sure but they've had varying 20% codes since November. they've been offering one in some form constantly so they should have it active for a month or two. I've used the site a lot and they're really trying to become a popular retailer so they back up everything they sell - free shipping, no tax, return shipping/RMA.

I was too when I ordered my build. The 20% codes are only good for the first order though for $50 max discount.

It really isn't, I just did it with build 1511 and it's as easy as getting Windows 7/8 has been forever.

Dazloader a clean install of 7 Pro/Ultimate.

Install only these updates: Service Pack 1, KB3035583, KB2952664, and Internet Explorer 11. Hide KB971033 (authenticator) like usual.

Then you'll have the Upgrade icon and prompt appear, the one that everyone tries so hard to get rid of and ignore. You use that or you can use the Microsoft Media Creation Tool and create a bootable USB.

http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10

I recommend upgrading from a clean install but I don't think there's any problem with keeping documents. But this way the Windows.old folder will be smaller and it will be a blank slate in case you want to downgrade back.

I think I'm getting a little ahead of myself. Wanted to stay just slightly under or over $800 but I think I'm a little too new at this. And I'm pretty sure that motherboard is less expensive elsewhere.

I guess what I'm trying to say is if I fucked up price-wise or am overdoing it somewhere (this is AFTER I changed my mind about having 16GB of memory). As things stand now, getting everything from a single brick and mortar store is impossible.

Trying to save money here. Also, my brother has an AMD CPU and its been treating him well so far. Yes, I know Intel is generally better but again, not rolling in money.

Anything else that needs to be reconsidered?

Recommend me please a good case.
Medium-sized, with enough fans and adequate dust protection.

Right now I got Thermaltake Element G, but it's fans are dying and they are real pain in the ass to replace. Also, I was young and thought glowing shit would be nice.
>>
>>52380114
people always talk shit at me for spending money on my fans. but hey, some cases only come with like 2 and my $15 fans lasted twice as long as their $5 fans by now so we're almost on parity for value that way alone never mind fan performance.

amd is better value for sure, for the gpu

Fractal Design Define Mini. mATX, Has filters on the bottom and front by default, quiet as a mouse, solid as a rock.

thoughts appreciated

My full-atx would not fit into that case.
But lots of people say that Fractal Design is really good.
How about Define S?

There's a couple of options on the 390, any specific recommendation on this?

Am I fucking this one up? I know I'd get shit for the i7 normally but I do a fair amount of audio production for visual media so the processing power is much needed.

Any rough ideas on a first gaming pc budget and possibly suggestions?

I am looking at the 380x for the upgrade. Does someone actually own the said card? How much better it actually is for 1080p gaming then the gtx 960?

How are the temps?

I preferably want to avoid a house fire.

Something like
i5-6500
gigabyte z170-hd3p
8gb gskill 2400 ddr4
r9 380 4gb
nzxt s340/ corsair 200r
1T hitachi deskstar
240gb ssd sandisk ssd plus or 250 gb 850 evo
500w corsair psu

$750-$800 us.
>>
>>52381295
You'll get a lot more shit for that case than a 4790 around here senpai.
>>
>>52381598
been doing the same research and it seems it's noticably better ~5-10% for pretty much the same price.

I can only go from benchmarks/tests I read online here but temp and power usage seem to be absolutely fine even though they are higher than for the gtx 960.

I'd honestly go for the gtx 970 if it wasn't for that 3.5 bullshit but I guess we can't have nice things. go buy amd and show nvidia that they actually can lose some money when they fuck shit up.
>>
>>52381740
From what I've seen I'd personally buy msi twin frozr version, the Sapphire tri-x and nitro, or Powercolor pcs+.

How is this $400 high end gaming pc?

Agreed. I would insta buy the 970 if it didn't have fucking 3.5.

Nvidia really fucked up by not releasing a 960ti.
