Building a new PC soon. What you guys think of the build? Price is in CAD BTW so if you are in US its about $1270.
Here is a link to the build for better viewing.
MMk. What's the problem with a 970? ive read some reviews that say it really only has 3.5GB but other than that i dont see an issue. Its the best card you can get unless you wanna spend 900+ and im definitely not going over my $500 budget on it.
Im not saying its perfect. but if you can build a btter gaming PC in the same $1800CAD Budget for me then tell me what to change. making fun of the build isn't constructive at all.
don't buy a skylake k processor, there is no point
that ssd is absolutely shit, get a 850 evo
nvidia is a shit company and 970 is meme get a 390 instead
get a no cx psu
pcie network cards are a meme
You see, anon, predominately poor people browse this board and will talk shit about your build unless you buy a 10 year old used memepad. Your better off going to /r/buildapc. People there will actually give you good advice, and won't be salty because you actually have money to spend.
/g is filled with a bunch of amd shills so its best to ignore them.
they shill for amd for simply not wanting amd to file for bankruptcy.
there is zero things wrong with the 970 and if you're gaming at 1080p, its the best price + performance card to get.
pic related, my 390 crossfire setup i had that i swapped with 970's shortly after due to them being massive house fires and shitty drivers.
the r9 390 is objectively the better card.
if op was to spend more money, i would recommend the 980 ti, but at this pricepoint amd wins.
no but you are for thinking a haf xb evo is a small form factor case.
2x 140mm 3,000rpm intake fans with 2x 120mm 2000 rpm fans on the lid directly above them as exhaust.
they're house fires.
3.5 is better than no driver support.
WD HDDs have always served me well, mine is chugging along just fine after 8 years here. I would've assumed their SDDs to be just as reliable.
funny if you look at his profile he replaced his 390s with a 980 ti.
might be bullshitting but that user did actually get rid of his amd 390s for a nvidia card ironically
it's your money, buy whatever you want. just don't come complaining later
>WD HDDs have always served me well, mine is chugging along just fine after 8 years here.
brand loyalty is always the best reason to buy something. wd was top tier 8 years ago. that does not mean they're worth shit today.
It's like the worst time EVER to build a pc in canada right now. Prices are ridiculously high. You should of built one before the holidays ended. Black friday had some pretty good deals and so did new years. But anyways assuming gaming
Skylake is kind of shit and it's not worth the price atm, ESPECIALLY not in Canada. Get haswell to lower the prices for your ram and motheboard.
Yeah this is shit. 850 EVO 250gb was only 99$ for a good 2-3 months. I would still buy one as it's the best price/performance SSD right now and will be for a while.
r9 390. I'm not going to explain why. Nvidia is expensive as fuck in canada and there is nohting wrong with amd. People are just retarded
Get a noctua nh d15. It's cheaper + it's better in almost every way possible. Unless of course you don't have enough space or ram clearance.
>tp link archer
Why the fuck do you need this
Terrible psu for a terrible cost. Evga g2 600w was 99$ at ncix right after new years. It's 1 of the best psu's on the market. I'm sure you can find a better psu then that corsair shit. The only good brand is the rmX series. If you don't care then just get the cheapest 80+ bronze 600w psu
yeah i did swap it for a 980 ti, which i swapped for dual 970s
i hated the 390s with a fiery passion. they were massive house fires
the 980 ti was great but really wanted a dual card setup so went back and got 970s which i enjoy very much. most games i match or above a 980 ti in performance.
only sc2 seems to be the only game that doesn't really take advantage of sli
r8 my designated shitposting machine guise, I even have 2+1 speakers with subwoofer!
otherwise it looks good, but don't expect that wifi card to have a long range, 5ghz limitations.
the hero motherboard is probably overkill unless you really need the extra features. the ranger version is fine and is a lot cheaper.
I own a 780 and will likely be upgrading to Pascal, yet I recommend the 390 over the 970 every time because it's the better card.
What now, faggot? Did I blow your mind in revealing that not everybody's a retarded brand whore like you?
my 8350 i bought after listening to you fucks about "MUH AMD SO GREAT, INTEL SO JEW AND SHIT, BUY AMD, SAVE THE CUMPUNY!!"
didn't last more than two months until i offloaded that thing to someone else and went back to intel with a 4670k - 4790k - and now a 6700k.
the 8350 was nothing more than a slow ass house fire cpu that couldn't even run skyrim or even fucken WoW decently with its shitty ass single threaded performance. all awhile heating up my room 8C and increasing my electric bill $5 a month.
the 390s where no different. power hogs that produced an insane amount of heat plagued by amd's cannot into software shitty ass drivers causing games to crash every few hours.
don't believe that? look at this 75 page thread that was growing till amd locked it.
started in june and grew until october when it was locked.
and people still complain about the same fucken tdr's to this day.
no amd is a pile of shit
yeah i am still going because of you blinded ass shills going around recommending a piece of shit company thats going to go belly up in 2020 unless it can get its shit together. all you're doing is promoting pain and suffering.
replaced that pile of shit for a 770 which ran like a beast until i got bored of it and replaced it later on.
anyone that buys amd or recommends it has to be a tormented soul who loves swift kicks in the balls for $50 because all you pay for is for a midget to come running along kicking you in your nuts and repeatedly kicking you in your nuts while you're down.
I built this recently:
> Asus z170-a
> meme ssd + 1tb
> 500w 80+ gold
I use a nice 2650 x 1600
Should I buy a r9 390 or a 970? Keep in mind I've only got 500w to play with. PCPP said my system would be at around 474w with an r9 and about 350w with a 970.
Most likely it should be fine but I've personally always taken a better safe than sorry approach to my PSUs. If you aren't going to get a higher wattage then definitely go 970 over 390.
>"Its the best card you can get"
>performs worse than its only competitor, the R9 390, while having less than half as much VRAM and worse DX12 support
It's literally the worst card you can get, you retard, because there's only two and the other one is better.
>there is zero things wrong with the 970 and if you're gaming at 1080p, its the best price + performance card to get
Except the 3.5 GB stutterfest. And the fact that even at 1080p the R9 390 is faster. And the shit DX12 support and no async compute.
i have the t9e and the driver does not let you switch bands for some reason. you can connect to 2.4ghz, but it will still have shit range for some reason. my cheap acer laptop shows all of my neighbors wifi networks, the t9e only shows my own, and only at 4 bars, despite the router being away less than 4 meters with no walls in between. at first i thought the card was broken, i tried it out in the living room when i got my new rig and it didn't show any networks at all. i wasn't aware of the 5ghz limitations until i read up on it after trying to 'fix' the card for hours. i really regret spending 60 bucks on it and i'm just going to get a cheap 2.4ghz wifi usb stick in the future. worst purchase i've made in years, but it's my own fault.
