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
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?
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.
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
Im putting together a pc for my brother who wants to edit videos / music and play a small amount of games and probably no AAA.

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:
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.
>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.
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.
>It is in BRL
>what is Google
>like 320 to 370 BRL
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:
>corsair vs 550w
Current budget is $600 without rebates.
Any tips? Now or Later?
What scares me about them is that I've heard they have a limited lifetime. I know that a poorfag like myself should be ashamed to think 100$ 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)
Poorfag here, I broke my monitor and I am now looking for a decently priced 21-23" 1080p monitor.
My budget is $150. Either below or close to that price range. Help me for the love of god /g/
Kind of similar to my first build; and it's treating me well.

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
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
Any cheap DVD drive is fine, it's more about convenience than heavy use. You can do without one but they are helpful
Is it still okay to use my 5+ year old XFX 550W Core? Pic related. I am upgrading my gpu and ram but I would love to leave the psu and save that money.
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")
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.
I really like the motherboard, both in looks and in terms of future proofing. Also,
>implying I don't need liquid cooling

If you're going to say "no difference", don't change the cooler type or the RAM amount.

I am not a hardcore gamer,just casual
All i gotta buy is like 5 pc fans cause phanteks has none.What to get?
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 think it was about £1,900 including tax, so they're getting quite a lot to build it, bearing in mind that's with a windows 10 license, h100i cooling (not h80 as per pic), changed ram to 4 x 4gb sticks rather than 2 x 8. Still I reckon that's about £300 going into building?
I've also heard the R9 390 is better value than the GTX 970 and the same price. 970 is fine though, this is basically the microATX version of my full ATX build which can run The Witcher 3 above 50 fps with the settings about half and half high/ultra (no hairworks though)
>Not shit 8GB RAM. I forget the brand
>Coolmaster HAF 912 case
>Bitchin' PSU that I don't have the specs imprinted to memory
It's time to upgrade something. Everything is still working solid but I'm bored of my shit. Same tech for 5 years. Thinking about going to snag a new GPU. What's a good value GPU these days? I see everyone talking about 960s and 380s. I just need something that's 4GB and won't make me go broke.
I was thinking of adding an SSD later as an upgrade since this is my first build and I still have to cover peripherals. My main concern is cooling, especially if I overclock, which I want to do hence the k processor.
About to happen.
Tell me /tg/, am I [spoiler]gay?[/spoiler]
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.
Yeah the processor was one of the only three choices and they were all six core haha. The 1000w I've just done for peace of mind, I always getting worried about these things. Maybe I should head down to 850?
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
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.
Currently working on a new build, probably going to wait to look at how good Pascal is before upgrading GPU however.

Welp, in the market for a new mobo.
Whats a good, cheap (<$80) mobo I can get for my i5-4670K?
One bad review on Amazon or Newegg scares me away from every one I can find.
anyone know if i should be fine letting my radiators dry out after a distilled water flush? i plan on flushing my rads with a mixed flushing liquid but it's advised to run a full loop with the flushing liquid, since i can't do this i'm planning on shaking the radiators clean for a few hours then flushing them out with distilled water.
at worst i'm guessing microbial growth but i'll do a final distilled water flush before installing.
Any recommendations? This is something my friend put together for me, and I'm new to PC building.
I also need a case, but have no clue where to look or what size to get.
I dunno, I've heard bad things about Samsung SSD's, but I'll talk to my friend and see what he says.
I'm going to shoot for 2 of those
Any case recommendations? I don't really care about the looks of it, even though people are saying to get something I'll like looking at because I'll have it for a while. But I don't really look at my current one at all, though it may be pleasing to post a pretty looking one in battlestation threads.
Bad things? If you heard anything bad, it's probably about SSDs in general, and not true. As for the case, I'm planning on an HAF X, so why not have a look at that. Nice and roomy, good looking too.
Well I'll see about changing it, in the meantime, I'll be looking at cases.
Kind of like the be quiet! silentbase 800 and Lian-li desu, while I want to go all out I like the window on the first one. We'll see what I decide.
Building my first rig, attempting to shave down some costs without sacrificing performance:
>EVGA G2 650W
>16 GB Kingston HyperX FURY Black (I know, but they're on sale)
>WD 2 TB HDD + Sandisk 240gb SSD
I feel like the 970 is pretty weak for the cost and I'm just paying for the brand.
I'm mildly poor (trying to save money with my gf so we have a small fortune for emergencies) and want to build my first computer. Most intensive tasks would be basic photoshop shit and designing pages in inDesign.
Can you guys steer me towards something decent for $600 CAD?

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

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
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.
looks fine, well memed on the liquid cooling and the top gaymur side window.
Do any of you massive faggots know how to put together a pc partpicker build? it's fucking annoying to read your shitty posts.
I am about to build a new PC, I already have almost every part from a previous build but I'd like some advice on wether I should upgrade any parts that I currently have.
Core i5 2500K ("new")
GTX 780 Ti ("new")
2TB HDD for stuff, 64GB SSD for boot drive
Here is the set up im thinking about purchasing. Budget is around $1,000
> GTX 970 $320
> i5 4690 $230
> NH-U12S $60
> MSI Z97 Gaming 5 $150
> 8GB DDR3 $35
> Seagate 1 TB HDD $50
> Crucial BX 100 250 GB Drive $84
> EVGA G1 650W $75
> Case Rosewill Thor V2 $120
This will be my first set up. Any recommendations are welcome such as where I can get these items for better prices or and downgrades or upgrades I should make based on my budget. I want to be able to play all games on High or Ultra high settings.
Either get an unlocked CPU or drop the Z97 and the aftermarket cooler.
Get a better 120GB SSD unless you're dual booting.
Get a 390.
Make a PCpartpicker list so we can edit it and just post the link.
Building my first computer in 6 years. How do I do it again? Has anything changed?
I have to admit that last time I fried the motherboard under a friend's direction. He was helping me through it (he insisted he knew all about it) and misidentified the floppy power supply. It was plugged into the wrong shit and fried things good.
Understandably, because I'm retarded, I'm a bit wary of making the same fuckups all over again.
no biggie my man, I put up this build if you want to OC. Add the case of your liking
You can either cut down on the SSD (get a 850 EVO), get a caviar blue.
Really depends what you're using it for.
If you're gayming at 1080p you might as well get a 380(x) and spend the saved money on eye candy or a d15 cooler if you like your low volume cooling.
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?
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.
Doesn't deserve its own thread so hopefully I can ask here.
The feedback for the monitor just died on this one.
Price is no option if it can last more than 2 years. I am so tired of replacing these things.
Works for me, just making sure there aren't any extreme upgrades/sales relatively close to the price of any of things I have. I mostly play older games anyway, I just need a fast pc.
Search for a 5.25" bay non hidden.
Or use the compatibility checker of PcPP after you've selected an optical drive.
Good pick, might go well over $1000 with that though.
As I said before, if you don't plan to OC get an unlocked CPU, a h97 mobo (if you like full specs, you can even get a h81 if you just want to save money) and go with a stock cooler.
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).
Here's the meme build I'm working on now:
>i7-6700K (friends dad works at Intel and can score it for $167)
>Maximus VIII Hero $225
>Ripjaws V 16gb (2x8) 2400mhz $80
>msi 970 gaming 4g

>850 evo 500gb $150
>wd blue 1tb $54
>corsair 860i fully modular psu $129
>storm Stryker for the case (solely for aesthetic)
All my peripherals are old tech I'll reuse
>>Search for a 5.25" bay non hidden.
By non-hidden you mean external? I was going for this one at first...
...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.
What do you think about my poorfag build?

By the looks of it, that case doesn't have a 5.25" external bay.
You can make do with an external optical drive if it doesn't bother you that much.
looks fine, have you checked an i3 + h81 for prices? Roughly same perfomance for gayming.
>>By the looks of it, that case doesn't have a 5.25" external bay.
No, but this does.
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.
Upgrading pic related a bit. How does this look? http://pcpartpicker.com/p/HVp4cf
Couldn't find a cheaper micro ATX mobo that supported faster RAM than 2133mhz either.
no look, this plus your ram from Newegg altogether is $10 cheaper - $328
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.
Any opinions on this??
I changed the ssd for a 480GB one of the same brand. Price is 1440USD including Windows 10
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.
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.
Just got my new parts. The In Win 909 looks like a dream but dear god the design of the motherboard back panel cable routing makes me want to kill myself.
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?
Could use some guidance,
Will these be a reasonable purchase now for the near future?
How big of a mistake is this? -- http://pcpartpicker.com/p/BvmdBm
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.
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.
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.
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.
What is the best 120GB SSD I can possibly get? I've read reviews on almost every brand and every single one of them has drives failing to boot for no apparent reason on their account. Any reliable manufacturers out there who wont rip me off?
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
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.
