Why are you so butthurt? Daddy a little too rough last night? How about I build you a computer since you want one so badly, and I'll throw in some anal cream too? Would you like that?
What is a good case that has the following:
-good cable management
-can support cpu fan with 162mm height
-(ideally) horizontal mainboard
-if not horizontal mainboard, atleast have a window
Made the plunge two days ago.
So far the case and the PSU have arrived on the scene, along with an AMD A8 7600 APU I forgot I ordered which I might sell or I might hold on to. Already have 250GB SSD on me, hence lack of storage. I'm fuckin pumped, this seems like the perfect build after a month or so of constant research.
Witing for this load for 9500DKK (1380 USD) including shipping.
The case is probably overkill, but looks so good - inside and out.
Video card is my old AMD 6970, also have 5TB of HDDs i plan to throw in.
Just bought seven of these little nignogs for a client that will use them for development on a slotcar circuitboard: http://pcpartpicker.com/user/Eschaton/saved/kDm9TW
I charged about 2100 for it, how'd I do /g/? (Reason pricing was so high is because I didn't know for sure what the price of windows was gonna be)
1. Is this good DOTA 2 Machine? Is there something wrong in my build, I just slapped my shit here and there
2. Is Mail-in rebate a meme? do you guys have experiences with it?
getting a 120$ case and that fucking garbage gt 740 is retarded. also thats way too much for a psu. if its a budget get a cheaper psu and case and get a beter graphics card, probably a 960. either way never go below a gtx x50 card from nvidia or a r7 x60 card from amd.
I have $500 and want to build a new computer. I very rarely play video games. What does /sqt/ think about this?
I have a spare HDD but I feel like an SSD will help a lot. I have a 15" LCD but I feel like at least a 1080p monitor would be nice. Would I be better off with some AMD APU, or a 6/7 core AMD or is this the best I can build for $500 with a monitor for multi-tasking with the possible video render and rare video game?
pic related is my current 'situation'
if you waited for a monitor, you could add a 750 ti or just put in an i5 6600K, but with a crappy motherboard, it'd seem like a waste to put in a K. I don't really know what i'm talking about though and will probably be BTFO by someone who does. that i3 is fine, but a 6600k for example would be crazy good. hell, if you could get an extra $100 and wait for a monitor, you could put in a fucking 4790K or 6700K.
drop the ssd and use your hdd. an ssd is nice but it doesnt "Help" anything. the main thing it helps with for most people is boot time and load times for games, which you dont play.
if you buy a monitor off craigslist you can save more and maybe get the 6600k. if you wait and use that lcd you have or a tv or something you can go all the way up to a 6700
Then is either this:
Over the budget? change the EVGA 650 G1 for a EVGA 500 B.
You will need the GTX 960 over the 750Ti.
The I5-4590 is nice to have over the I5-4460 for some bucks more but if it goes over the budget get the 4460.
You will want to drop the SSD too.
This is as most budget you can go and run the games good.
But instead doing this it would be a better idea to push it to get a I5-4690K and a Z97 motherboard.
He has overpriced RAM.
Motherboard its not worth it.
I think that this is pretty good if you're not adding a GPU. If you were able to get a Z170 motherboard, you have a sweet upgrade path to a 6700K or whatever else Intel will release for LGA 1151 in the future. That $50 motherboard will be okay, but don't expect to overclock at all or put any other CPU in it. It's basically a waste of $50 because you'll have to chuck it after this i3 gets old, $180 GONE.
Take out the monitor, CPU and motherboard, you now have about $315 for just the CPU and motherboard. Put that into something like a $115 Z170 for that sweet upgrade path, and then add a i5-6500.
If you dropped the SSD, because you don't play games and load times really don't matter, and you don't really NEED an SSD and prices go down daily ANYWAY, you could have like $400 JUST for the CPU and motherboard. You still can't get a 6700K($400 right now), which is basically god-tier right now, but you could get a 4790K($300-$330 right now), which is basically the same CPU in terms of power consumption and scores. Put the other $75-$100 into the motherboard and fucking boom you have basically the fastest PC you can get as a non-gamer. no need to upgrade because you're already at the top.
What? The RAM and mobo in that build are cheaper than the ones you're recommending. He also has a fucking R9 390 in there for the same price and you're recommending a GTX 960, a card about half as powerful. You're recommending putting a Hyper 212 EVO on a locked i5 when the stock cooler is more than adequate. You're clueless, basically.
>What? The RAM and mobo in that build are cheaper than the ones you're recommending
>$10 diference in ram
>H97 motherboard for a locked i5
>Complaining about the 212 evo over the stock
Here is your reply.
they load faster, after they load into ram its up to your cpu.
ex. you can open open your video editor faster, but your renders will take the same amount of time
a better cpu on the other hand can significantly reduce render times, or increase fps in a game ect
lmao do this and put a 6700K/4790K in this thing for a sleeper PC. it'd be practically the fastest thing out for a long time. I'd be happier with it if you put in a better PSU, though.... the PSU is pretty important to helping your components last a long time. a 80+ GOLD PSU is like $80 and will last a long time. Don't bother with Platinum. The premium you pay for it is not worth it at all. Trust these guys too, don't put in an SSD if you have a spare HDD. The difference between a i3-6100 - i7-4790K/6700K will be WAY bigger than a 7200RPM HDD - decent SSD. You can add an SSD whever the fuck you want. If you're not gaymen, you want the absolute best CPU you can possibly get, which is a 4790K/6700K. the CPU IS the computer.
then hoiw is it bad for a locked i5? your reply suggested it was somehow not good for a locked chip, like it was a z97 or something. its a nicer board for a good price, whats the problem? change out the board and ram, fine. the build is still better.
shitpost, edit a video once in a while, play a game once in a while, edit pictures once in a while.. program once in a while.
I just have a lot to spend to do it. i'm thinking about a 4K monitor. considering a 6700K.
well heres a good place to start then
if you need that 4k monitor included in your budget, you'll obviously have to cut some stuff down. if you dont but dont "need" the 6700k and want the ability to actually play games at 4k, you can get an i5 system with a 980ti in your budget.
it really all depends on what you want in the end
I'm considering going down to a 6600K(only like $20 more than a 4690K and it's skylake) or maybe going back to a haswell 4790K because it seems like the 6700K is the exact same speed. I don't know if it's worth it to take an i7 at all. It's really annoying me at this point.
its honestly nice for video editing, but thats about it. Skylake is surprisingly better at gaming shown in a decent amount of benchmarks. Personally I said fuck it and bought a 4790k, mostly for the stock bump to 4hz. if you jump down to the 6600k you can get a 980ti for 1280$ so theres that.
HOWEVER since you arent desperate to game or do anything graphics intensive, you might actually be able to wait till the gtx 1080/70 or 1080ti come out. Maybe buy a 750ti in the mean time. food for thought
its kind of unbalanced. the 4790 is more than you need for that 960.
Also, you're getting an overclockable chip. You should be getting a z97 board to at some point leverage that fact.
i'd suggest going down to an i5 and getting an r9 390. or even better get a skylake i5 and getting a 390.
Here's mine. Not sure what I'm going to do with it, probably chinese girl cartoons and shitposting. Already have a few spare drives and the keyboard is there just to remind me, probably gonna spend about $80 for one.
I need some fucking help, guys.
I have $1250 but $515 is on an amazon card and $750 is on a best buy card This is the build I've come up with so far. My monitor is a POS 15" LCD so that's why I have that monitor on there.
Best Buy has a Gigabyte Z170 UD5 that is $180, same as amazon and seems pretty good but I'm not sure. it would free up my amazon card a bit and allow me to get other shit, because at this point I the only thing I can get at best buy is monitor and CPU. best buy doesn't have the largest selection.
I appreciate the help, truly.
this is what I'm doing with >>52643319 sort of. if I can fin a 980 ti for $600 or under, I'll probably take it. Those new cards are probably not going to blow your mind, other than the top-end ones that won't get released until the end of the year, imo.
well, they're Z170 so I can basically overclock 1ghz automatically and probably higher quality so I can use it a few years down the line when I upgrade to the 10nm intels or whatever.
Sorry theres like 2-3 of us even bothering to answer you mooks
imo it sounds dumb as fuck the intel integrated is probably better than a 530.
drap that stupid fucking cooler, m.2 and overly expensive board and just get a graphics card now, you can sell it later. jesus fucking christ.
Here anon, I just ordered this last week. If you're going AMD this probably has everything you need. (The cpu and case could be better though)
Got all this for around $370 USD
bcus 970. ots a good card but its a meme for a reason
they both suck, the pentium is more upgradable
i think there are cheaper 950s, or similarly priced r9 380s
AMD is going to have better multicore performance.
Intel will have better single core performance.
AMD and Intel give pretty similar upgrades unless you're going for an i7 desu. Even then, an OC high amd chip can match some intel i7s.
For the gpu, pick your poison.
i'm actually pretty glad that you also run AA2 and I wasn't the weirdo who only plays porn games. I used to play FPS like RO2 or whatever, but the shit just gets boring after a while for me.
no problem bruh. every jap porn game i've played runs great as far back as intel hd 3000. in fact plenty run more consistently on intel graphics. theres also plenty of older games like KOTOR and a star wars battlegrounds that ONLY work on intel hd.
fun fact plenty of fag/g/ots play waifu porn games
just pirate it like everyone else, or go on reddit keyswap if you want a cheap key.
any reason why you're getting the gtx 770 ?
For about the same price (if you can find it) you might as well get an R9 290
Or for a bit more money a gtx 970
Guys what's that website which lists different PC parts and their prices. It also has a yellowish background. Also is there somewhere I can do some reading about PC parts to learn more about them cause I'm going to try and build a new PC. I'm going to get my insurance company to give me refund instead of a replacement so I'll have ~$2,300 AUD.
How is my budget build guys did I go full retard?
Rate my build.
Also, ignore the compatibility notes; both the Graphics Card and CPU Cooler should have more than enough room in this case; for whatever reason, despite the generally good ratings, no one's bothered to flag compatibility notes for Rosewill cases.
Hello, rate my budget build please
Is that compatibility note gonna fuck my CPU up?
>Could I be doing better on value?
Yes you could save $90 by downloading an untouched iso of windows 7, activating it (daz loader) and upgrading to windows 10 (why would you want to I have no fucking clue) for free.
>TFW have enough to buy a titan x sli custom water-cooled setup
>tfw too prudent and build a i5, gtx 960 build cause all I care about is 1080p after coming off my shitty WoW laptop.
Feels good to manage my finances well.
This anon is generalizing too much but a r9 390 is a much better value than the 3.5gb turd nugget. shit the Msi one. But Nvidia is better at the super budget end (gtx 950 is nice if all you do is low-demand games like mobas and MMO's) and the high end at 980+. AMD rules the mid-range.
>But Nvidia is better at [...] the high end at 980+
GTX 980 = $470
R9 Nano = $465
The cards are about equal in performance and price. We could post benchmarks all day long. Neither is strictly better than the other.
Is Corsair Vengeance LPX RAM a waste of money when not used with overclocking parts? I got a build scheduled and most of the components have arrived, but the RAM says it's for overclocking while I have ordered a non-overclockable motherboard and CPU.
It's 8GB DDR4-3000. Did I waste £50?
I'm this grill btw ;) >>52635164
Are this parts gona work together? Did I match cpu and mobo properly? I am buying this for reflex fps on 144hz, is it gona run gta5 on medium-low?
Can someone rate this for me?
I'd rate that 9 out of 11 cos that sweet picture of Bill drove itself into my heart like a passenger plane
Get two sticks of 8GB RAM together rather than separately, save some cash
Get a higher wattage PSU
Get a 1TB HDD
Could cost a bit over $1000 but it'll be worth it trust me, 250GB storage is not enough for all your pornographic materials of Bill
Rate my build, I'm looking to play the latest gaymz at 60fps, high/max settings
CPU - i5 6500
GPU - Sapphire R9 390
FAN - 212 EVO
MOBO - ASRock Z170 Pro4S
RAM - 8GB DDR4
HDD - 1TB
SSD - 240GB (Sandisk Extreme Pro)
PSU - SEASONIC M12II 620
CASE - ARC MIDI R2
It comes in at €1100
desu-ing with you right now, I don't see the point of overclocking when you end up spending like $50+ more on the motherboard and $90 on a cooler. I'm debating just not getting a z170 board and dropping down to a non-K with the stock cooler.
Good point, good point, I feel like I need a push thats why I'm trying to get others opinion, because the money difference may seem little but I'm not the richest NEET.
different anon but your build is hilariously unbalanced. for the same price you could fit a 390 in there
this is what i'd do
choose your own case obvi
trust me anon. I've been looking at this shit for literally 24 hours now. I'm the OP of the skylake vs haswell thread and have been solely researching this shit the entire time since like midnight. from what i can sort of gather
haswell is pointless now, in general. they run hotter, don't cost much less, and actually aren't as fast, even if only by about 5%
if you want god-tier multi-core, go 5820K with a x99 motherboard. more worthwhile than going i7 6700k
6600k is god-tier for gaymen, especially if you overclock to like 4.5ghz
these chips are so powerful that worrying about muh futureproof is pointless. we'll have these builds for like 5-8 years before feeling the need to do anything new.
btw, I still haven't decided or bought anything yet so you shouldn't listen to me, ahahah
so you put a shittier motherboard, case, and cooler, and then put all of that dosh into a better GPU?
I don't know if I like it. I sort of wanted all of that stuff to be quality so I don't have any surprises. I just keep thinking that if i'm getting a $250 CPU that the other components need to be top-tier, too. am I wrong? Would that 200R do the same job the Define R5 would?
That chip is for DDR4, and the PSU is way too much but he's right the card is way better.
Nice. I've been posting in that thread. I'm gonna look into the 5820K/x99 now, I almost forgot.
uhhh... off the top of my head
6600K with a gtx 950 = $400
plus top-tier SSD = $480
plus good enough case = $530
plus 8gb ram = $565
plus motherboard that will let you overclock with a cooler = $765
plus bronze PSU = $800
if you need monitor/keyboard/mouse, then get something lower than a 6600K
damn nigger that was straight off of the top of my head I'm so fucking good
Why? It looks like a better deal to me... The benchmarks show that the R9 390 owns the GTX 970 by 5-10% and the twice as much VRAM is more future proof.
I want this to be decent for at least 5-6 years, and after that there is OC potential, room for more storage and RAM, and SLI potential Did I do good?
Also please give feedback on the headphones, monitor and mouse
I'm really thinking about getting a Zowie EC1-A instead
That paper holder tier video card is a bottleneck for the 6600K, might aswell buy a lower tier chip or buy a better video card, also RAMs should ALWAYS brought dual channel, epecially for gaming.
yeah, probably. I'm always of the camp that your CPU should be more powerful than your GPU. You don't use your GPU 24/7. you always are using your CPU. CPU bottleneck is much worse than GPU bottleneck in vidya. learn something anon
all motherboards over 120$ are basically memes. and any air cooler over 50$ is super meme-tier. at that point you should be considering aio watercoolers. The motherboard is a good board. its not shittier, its just not overpriced. It will easily handle your average 4.4ghz OC with zero probleam ever.
also a $250 cpu isnt really that special. spending ridiculous amount of superfluous money and getting a shit gpu just doesnt make sense at your budget.
I dont into cases so i cant tell you, i just put a case as a place holder.
Well yeah it really depends on what exactly the person plans to do the most. By default I would always recommend a better GPU than CPU for gaming, but for streaming you might be right.
6600K better investment for an overall plus 50-60 bucks on your build (proper mboard, ram, cooler).
Nah it's a fresh gaming rig. I can barely squeeze in a 6600K but worried about cheaping out on a motherboard.
Would a MSI Z170 mortar be good? That's the best micro atx I can afford.
As is there any significant difference between 2133 and 2400 ram?
The difference between some gold and bronze level PSU ends up being like ~$2/month in actual cost.
Just get a well rated PSU for whatever your budget is, don't blinding get whatever is expensive or labeled as gold.
it just depends on what you're doing. if you're looking for max overclocks then yeah you're going to have to spend $150-$200 on your motherboard and $80-$100 on your cooler. if you want the best then you have to use the top shit. is it worth it? no.
Fair enough. 2400 was actually few cents cheaper than 2133 so going with that.
This is my build now, I know the cooler is meh but going to buy a better one after a while, won't go for high OC.
Case is a Silencio 352 micro atx tower
Already have an EVO 850 so that's sorted.
Funny enough, the s340 was in my original build but wanted something smaller and quiet, thus the silencio in micro atx. But still have a week before buying so...
no dude, get the Cryorig H7. WAY better. it's way quieter, gets you at least 5C cooler, easier to install, and smaller. it's being dubbed the 212 EVO killer. google it for yourself. trust me.
Can someone take a look at this. In trying to go for the best performance in as small form factor as possible.
Just posted this finished build a couple days ago
Alright, this might be my most ridiculous dilemma yet
5820K w/ gtx 950 build ($1200)
6600K w/ GTX 970 build ($1000)
I'd actually have the extra couple bucks to add a monitor to the 6600K build. My current monitor is a 15" LCD. yeah.
Is it worth going insane for the 5820K? I plan on using whatever I build for like 8 years.
>I'd actually have the extra couple bucks to add a monitor to the 6600K build. My current monitor is a 15" LCD. yeah.
scratch that. i'd have enough in either build to add a monitor.
How is this guys? Literally my first time building a PC and I'm kind of nervous and I hope I did my research properly.
I want to know though, I do not really intend on 4k gaming any time soon, is the 980 ti overkill for just 1080p or should I just get the 980. Also I currently have the CA-0300 Hornet NG as my case but I'm not sure if it's big/good enough and shit.
>god-tier CPU that would last a decade with bang-for-buck GPU so you can play with gay men every once in a while
>skymeme that scores literally half the 5820k with 3.5vram maymay
if you're just doing 1080p, go with a 970.
can't do it. i'm buying the motherboard off of best buys website because it's where my money is(long story) so that $300 motherboard is actually the least expensive one, believe it or not. the others that ARE cheaper are inflated like $50 compared to amazon and newegg. it sounds retarded, but I basically have no choice if I want to add a GPU, which I need to being that 5820k has no igpu.
I see, that sucks. doesnt bestbuy pricematch with newegg? i remember them doing that before, at least in store. you could theoretically go to a store and have them order it for you and then get the discount.
funny thing is that the items I'm actually buying from best buy is the 5820k and the motherboard, both of which are actually matched with newegg/amazon automatically, which is why i'm considering this in the first place. for whatever reason, best buy is really good with their CPU prices but absymal and inflationary with everything else except for a couple of motherboards.
Is the price/performance ratio for the 980 that bad compared to the 970? Thank you for the advice though, I'll probably do just that.
Why the 390? It seems pretty good but I've heard kinda mixed things about it, the price tag is appealing though.
yeah the price to performance is terrible especially considering how close the 970 390 and 390x come to it. plus for the same price you can get an r9 fury or nano which are genuinely better(gameworks tomfoolery aside).
the 390 generally performs better than the 970 and sure 8 gigs of vram is overkill but 3.5 gb can actually be noticed. 390 is also a beast for crossfire.
~$1738.93 - Around that price is about as far as I intend to go. Is this a big mistake? Maybe after I build this I might look for a 2560 x 1440 - 144hz Monitor.
I'll be taking the plunge in a couple of days. Gradually. Starting with the RAM. The store near me has a neat deal where the motherboard is $40 off upon buying a matching CPU but I don't know if that's permanent or just a sale until the end of the month. VERY tempting but getting that combo right away would leave me utterly broke. Decisions, decisions...
outdated in what regard? those are all good parts, maybe get a better ssd. The only real thing i see happening is the 1080ti coming out in 6months to a year and BTFOing that 980ti leading to heap big buyers remorse. and if thats what you're worried about, just get a decent but cheap card now and sell it to some poorfag in a year or less. hell you could even sell the 980ti.
I was referring to myself when I meant "outdated". As in "I lost touch on what is good or not". When looking for the parts for this build I had to look up alot of what's been happening to the world of CPU's, GPU's, Cases, DDR4 Rams, etc.
Regarding the new-gen you have a point, but I don't think I want to buy that newly expensive technology just yet.
Look at the Skylake Z170 motherboards. They're ~$30 cheaper than that AM3+, and you can spend that ~$30 on a better Intel CPU (one of the lower-end i5's)
My mother needs a desktop for email, excel work and skype. She works overseas most the time, and wants a designated desktop that she can rely on working when she's home catching up on tax, and business tasks (sometimes she's home for a 2 day window in a month, and wants to get invoices etc out to clients).
Currently I have her setup working off an (aging laptop) with a 24" monitor, keyboard and mouse,
She told me she wants a computer that she won't have to worry about upgrading for the next 5 years.
dunno if iGPU will deal with skype, so selected a cheapy GPU to chuck in for her.
I've offered to buy and build it for her. have I made dumb dumb choices or will this suit her needs? I essentially looked at what local stores were offering and tried to come up with something better at the same price point.

>My mother needs a desktop for email, excel work and skype
That's too much for her. It might even cause problems at customs. Do the smart thing and buy her a new laptop, preferably one around the same $800 price range.
If she absolutely needed a desktop (which I honestly doubt with her lifestyle), buy a mini-ITX motherboard with an integrated CPU (quad-core A4-5000 fits the bill and is cheaper than an AM1 + CPU while using less power), 8GB of DDR3-1600 RAM, a PNY or A-Data 120GB SSD for $40-45, a mini-ITX case with an integrated power supply (or a super-small one that only supports an external power brick), for around $300.
An iGPU is more than enough to run Skype, even with high resolution webcams. What you've built is seriously overkill for what she needs. Although she should be able to use it for more than 5 years, it's not really cost effective when you can upgrade the build in 4 years for less than $150.
MSI Z170-A PRO or MSI Z170A PC MATE? I have an i5 6600K.
$800AU build mate
The Nano is $799AU
> It might even cause problems at customs
Not sure if it's clear in what I wrote earlier, but she's not going to take the computer with her travelling
pretty damn sick of this shit at this point and just want to pick something already
well theres your problem.
on a side note you can oc on non z boards now
oh hey its porn game bro.
at least be willing to upgrade your graphics card in like 3 years depending on if you want to play new games. imo if you want it for that long i'd kinda suggest going skylake if possible since you want to keep it for so long and haswell is already a few years old
both 6600k and 6700k are sold out on best buy, where I'd have to buy my CPU. If I want to get a skylake now, I have to not buy a GPU at all for a while. this shit is confusing and I wish I just had all of the money on my amazon account, but over half of it is in shitty best buy.
the problem is that i'm not saving money with 6600k. i'm losing money because best buy has cheaper 1150 motherboards than 1151 motherboards. i hate this shit. i've been up for 28 hours now just trying to figure this shit out.
yeah. wait why are you telling me to get the i5 instead? I can afford a monitor and such with a 970 and 4790k. I can literally order it all right now. I'm sort of weirded out by the motherboards. I can't figure out which one to pick.
but yes I can get the 4790k, 16gb ram, gtx 970, ssd/monitor or whatever... I somehow made it all go together. I DID have a perfect 6600K build READY TO FUCING BUY but some fucker bought the last 6600k at the last fucking second before I was going to buy.
It doesn't really matter anymore.
by the way, they have like 30 of these fucking lga 1150 z97 motherboards. I just picked those two to look at because they seem to sell highly on amazon, have good ratings, and the prices aren't inflated.
are you sying to me that a fucking EVGA 600B can handle a r9 390? wtf
yeah, it fucking can. it uses 300watts max ever
50watts for everything else
math fucker. I ran a 290x on a 430watt for like a month and never once crashed. dont be such a faglord.
>budget is up to $900
>have microATX case, hard drives, and good power supply
how do I build a silent desktop? uses will be programming, watching videos/movies, listening to music, and occasionally gaming. will have a 1080p and 1440p monitor.
>phenom II x4 955
is this good for resource-intensive image editing + 3d modeling? first time build so i don't really know what i'm doing and i haven't gotten much feedback yet.
Corsair rm series psu's have zero fan mode. i've honestly never seen my fan spin other than when playing high end games.
msi coolers on gpu's are quiet as fuck and also have zero fan modes
there are passive cpu coolers that work but i cant think of any off hand. I think I remember the dark rock whatever being quiet as fuck
yes. no fan unless it gets hot enough to.
Under normal use the fans wont turn on for either the psu or gpu.
>is there a way to conditionally turn the gpu on and off?
ummmm if you dont have a display plugged into it yes. but if its driving your display that doesnt really work.
>how can i tell what part is causing the most noise?
with your ears? unless you have small quality mics and want to measure decibels. there are programs that can monitor fan speeds, control fan speeds and also fan controllers for my system. whichever fan is fastest is probably the loudest
i would give you more info but Im not autistic about silence because i have tinnitus which makes silence torture.
I need to get a new extreme budget PC for a relative, considering the AMD 7850k or perhaps a skylake CPU for Igpu video editing etc. Rather then buying a shitty discrete GPU i think this is a better option as I can get a mother board with new chipset.
What is your opinion on these CPUs? I really want USB 3.1 but that means I have to go with a new motherboard that uses DDR4 which is generally really expensive.
My relative will probably use this build for 5-10 years which is why I want USB 3.1
Is the PSU enough for this build? I can't decide on a cooler, the Cryorig H7 looks bad, can I remove the logo from the fan? Is the motherboard ok?
No way, the R9 390 is a highly power consumption video card. You need to bump it up to at least 650W. I would recommend this one (it's also fully modular,so A+ for cable management) -- http://pcpartpicker.com/part/corsair-power-supply-rm750
For CPU Cooler, use either the Cooler Master Hyper 212 -- http://pcpartpicker.com/part/cooler-master-cpu-cooler-rr212e20pkr2
Or the Shadow Rock 2 --- http://pcpartpicker.com/part/be-quiet-cpu-cooler-bk013 -- altought I have heard that since it is too big it can block certain ram slots.
