Here's my build. Is it worth the buying? I want to run games flawlessly and do video editing
other questions are:
should I really a do gtx980ti?
I already have the mobo, CPU and some storage.
Please ridicule at your leisure.
bad PSU, get a gold please
Get a K CPU or go back down to a 4460, not worth the price, also 970 or 980ti for same reasons
That monitor has really bad viewing angles and a headset? and if you're getting a 380, please get the 4GB version
help /g/ please, i have to buy a new gpu because i went full of fag and broke a blade on december as you can see here http://4archive.org/board/g/thread/51822552
the gpu is making so much noise and i even cant see videos.
Processor: AMD Athlon X2 250 3000 MHz
Psu: 650 watts
Motherboard i dont know, but it supports Pci express 2.0
what gpu can i buy? i have like $140.
i was thinking in a nvidia 730 but i read that the processor is not to powerful and will bottleneck.
I'm trying to save as much money as possible for a decent PC help Pls
Wow that is definitely cheaper. I'd never considered a micro case, I guess because I have no experience with them. Are they harder to work with in any way? Is it not going to be hotter/louder? Only concerned because my apartment in the summer is a heat trap
Yes, it might be a bit harder. But since you went with a fully modular PSU, there shouldn't be too many cables everywhere. Choosing a case is very subjective. Some cheap cases are the Cooler Master N200 and the Corsair Carbide 200R
Don't buy skymeme. It's not worth it the extra cost. What are you going to do with the PC? If it's just for gaming, you won't need hyperthreading or overclocking. You won't need 16GB ram either and DDR4 barely does any difference at all when gaming.
Skylake is not worth the money at all. Neither is DDR4 ram since it doesn't make any difference when gaming. Overclocking the cpu barely makes little to no difference when gaming.
Youre throwing money with skylake and ddr4, but if you're going to keep it as it is without upgrading it may be worth it, maybe a better power supply so you don't have to worry about it when you change the graphics card in a couple years.
speak of the devil, look what parts I just purchased last Sunday to put together tomorrow or Monday
intended for general use, some gaming but I just want something decent to be honest
how is a microATX tower smaller than a full ATX? am i reading this right?
Maybe, but you never know, i had my pc untouched for 3 years, and everything held up great, except for the damn 500w power supply.
But it's a pretty good build just to leave it unchanged for a couple years.
that processor is old as fuck. it can barely play new games. i had an athlon 260 from a build from like 2010. upgrade to FX-6300 AT LEAST. or pay twice as much for the slightly better intel equivalent
GPU: GTX 750, GTX 950 and AMD R7 360 are the best value GPUs right now. if you are going to spend less than 100€ on some shitty outdated graphics card you might aswell look for second hand stuff. (got my HD 7850 that way for just 60€)
also check benchmarks online to see the value of what you buy! cpubenchmark and videocardbenchmark.com are excellent sites for this.
Buddy gave this to me a couple years ago because he decided to build some fucking fancy Koenigsegg PC.
Anyway, I know all of the stuff is at least a few years old, but I really need a new case, everything on this one is wearing out, and it's dented and shit from him being a slob.
What are good cases for around 75 bucks? I don't need windows or LEDs or anything, just something with cable management and good fan placement because the one I have now has NONE and it's hot as fuck 24/7.
Ordering pic related the day my tax returns hit my bank account. God bless America.
This one has a 980 Ti and is also a bit cheaper.
The Xeon is basically a cheaper i7. It has hyperthreading and everything. Overclocking cpu is very overrated.
You could make it even cheaper by switching to a cheaper case.
I got that same CPU Cooler and the same CPU. I OCed my CPU to 4.5ghz and it only got to 50° C. That cooler and CPU are fucking amazing and the cooler is simple to set up. Otherwise list looks good. Hope you have fun!
Pic related is my current PC, I want to shrink it down to ITX but at the moment decent ITX boards with wireless built in are like gold dust. Should I wait until Summit Ridge drops? Or just stick to what I have and get Polaris to replace my buyers remorse 780?
I love my pc, but after spending all the cash on fans, the high end mobo, etc. it was disappointing.
With that kind of OC I could have had some rinky $70 board and a stock cooler. The shit doesn't even heat up, it just won't go.a
Yeah, luckily I made sure to research every single part and what it would do, I knew the fan cooler was 3000+ RPM, so it would have no trouble keeping things cool, and my GPU has 3 fans on it from Powercolor and it's stays under 70 under max load.
