Building one soon. I need it for gaming and design (2D and 3D art, animation, modeling, game creation).
Any advice?
>>
Benchmarking is , a waste of time and money. Most of the games that I play don't have amazing graphics. I don't play games that often and am away from home 5-6 days a week, so everything I do is on a laptop or over a handheld.

I've thought about making a lowprofile computer but there aren't a whole lot of games to justify building one.

Mustard race here. Haven't build a new one since 2011. I don't see any reason why since there aren't many new PC games worthy upgrading/new building. Are you telling me F4 for example is worth upgrading? I think not!

Roughly $1,850 after tax and delivery IIRC
It was expensive as fuck, but I spent more than I needed to on the case, the SSD didn't need to be that expensive either, and I could have just not gotten the Wireless card.

I almost went with the 980 build instead with 1151 sockets, but it just seemed like the performance increase compared to price increase wasn't worth it, and all of that extra money could have been spent on shit like SSDs and Wireless cards.
Still, it should keep me going for a few years before I need to upgrade anything

AMD cards are simply better in general until you hit the 980ti, they have more performance, they also support DX12/Vulkan better than Nvidia's card so when those APIs come out you're screwed.

Sorry anon, never had a case vibrate so hard, and really, rub that part of the case when it arrives, truly a horror.

Otherwise its roomy and fits everything you can but as I took my PC to lans and shit, this sucked ass as its not sturdy at all, can't even sit it on the side (trunk of car) because those protrusions get dented in.

I also was one of the only people on /v/ that was able to run Street Fighter V at max settingsit looked and played identical to PS4 Most people here have shitty machines. I go where the games are. I own a PS4, XBONE,Vita,3DS, and a WiiU. I hurt for nothing and can play all the exclusive games. The only game coming for the PC that is exclusive that I have any interest in is XCOM, and I highly doubt it will be pushing my PC to the limit. Stay a salty faggot. This board would die without you.

>i have no standards
I'm not the one spending 1000+ hours on assfaggots. I'm not the one pretending that my toy is better because I paid more money for it. I'm not the one creating stupid cringeworthy theories about my self proclaimed superiority despite all my worthplaying games being terrible console ports designed to be played with console hardware that crash day one.

If everytime a new game is announced you are left wondering whenever you will be able to play it or not on your shitbox, or whenever they decide to throw leftovers at you you are forcing yourself to buy just so you might get more left overs in the future you have no standards and your platform of choice is worthless. All the performance in the world won't make up for lack of software.

Good anon, I also don't do any of those things.
I KNOW that my "toy" is objectively better than your toy - this is the concept you seem to have trouble with.

I get the games I want wherever I want - the difference is I have standards that need to be met in order to get a purchase from me, while you don't.
I have more games in my backlog than what I will ever catch up with, I'm not indoctrinated to only care about the newest releases - which is what your kind is clearly all about.

You people think you have somekind of "victory" from getting an exclusive - for me, it just means whenever I bother to buy X console, it'll have one more cheap game I can give a go.

Does your toy allows you to collect and display a video games collection? Does it allow you to invite a couple of friends and play Mario Kart 8 in the living room? No?

>I get the games I want wherever I want
Except all those console games you are always so butthurt about. Also like what games? We both know you only ever play assfaggots and meme games that run on toasters like Undertale.

>the difference is I have standards that need to be met in order to get a purchase from me, while you don't.
Oh boy, PC ports are famous for being top notch high quality versions of games. Definetly superior standards you have there when you buy Arkham Knight from Steam.

>I have more games in my backlog than what I will ever catch up with
Yet all you ever play is assfaggots and counter strike. Prove me wrong post your steam profile.

PC has already proven to be an unsustainable platform for higher end software development, it's the very reason why bungie and other devs left the paltform in droves years ago. An industry plagued by indies and AAA because we denied the importance of middle men, publishers and console manufactures is a bad industry and right now we're flying into it head first ]especially as PC gaming is becoming a consumer tradition and is slowly amassing major influence over the industry. What we don't want to take into account is the huge amount of b-level developers that produce console ip's and exist because consoles exist, those who aren't as rich as AAA developers but those who can't survive independently or through crowd funding. Those games are important and the the ones which we should not piss away so carelessly.

Even this is still an over-simplification on the importance of publishers/consoles and what console manufacturers do behind the scenes. For example Street Fighter wouldn't exist without Sony funding it and saving Capcom from near bankruptcy which also effects other industries and platforms like 3DS. Kojimas new studio also wouldn't have been possible without Sony if gaming was forced to go PC exclusively. Consoles support much more than just first party titles and AAA games. The average consumer is usually so brainwashed by anti-corporate convictions yet blind to the fact that they are the ones who are simply able to get shit done in this volatiel industry and will glady destroy their ability to do it if not to stick it to the man and save a couple dollars on steam.

When PC manages to finally destroy consoles market share you guys will see the true face of PC gaming and it is exactly the same as it was 10 years ago.

This is what I don't like about Steam, cutting out the middle man a.k.a publishers is something that multiple industries have had delusions of doing for over a decade and the people who try always hit the same barriers that anyone else does, primarily money.

I'm struggling to think of a good, full game that doesn't look like utter shit that was made independently on PC and sold well. So far I'm coming up with Castle Crashers. FTL is a good example but that was by virtue of Kikestarter, which is another can of worms altogether and shouldn't be seen as an easy "way out" of publishers existing.

Something like Bloodborne, for our example here, being made by a team with nobody funding them is fucking laughable and if not literally impossible. I'd venture to guess that no less than 300 people had a hand in actually developing that game, and I'm not counting the thousands that number jumps to when you account for everyone who had a hand in its release.

People have tried to buck off the middlemen in everything. Indie film especially; people just want to grab a good camera, make their art, and become known. Same with garage bands. Nobody wants to think about how much bullshit goes into actually selling your product on a large scale, and sooner or later, they all go looking for someone to distribute their shit for them because it's an industry unto itself. All those indie bands and little visionary directors work with big studios and labels sooner or later or just fade into obscurity.

The average consumer is usually so brainwashed by anti-corporate convictions yet blind to the fact that they are the ones who are simply able to get shit done in this volatile industry (Bloodborne) and will gladly destroy their ability to do it if only to 'stick it to the salary man' and save a couple dollars on steam.

The same people who incessantly hate console exclusivity yet wonder when PC ports are coming to their system while also failing to understand why nobody can afford to develop these type of games for the PC on the PC platform and hey exclusives can even be made possible in the first place.

It has basically become impossible to start a discussion about how and why companies like Sony are pretty dam imporant right now because you'll just get met with vitriol and hatred by the ignorant.

Consumers have always been dumb but now they have the tools to slowly but surely destroy the industry and they are fucking doing it and PC triples the amount of console owners in any given thread. Traditional gaming is over, it's dead, many will be content with mobas, AAA and indies if consoles die and that's more sad than anything.

The only thing you have to worry about is your CPU working with your motherboard, but that is super easy to find out as well, you could just google the motherboard.

I think the big problem with steam is that it made video games worthless in the eyes of PC gamers by devaluating their prices to extreme levels. As a AAA developer you make a fraction of the console profit because everyone is waiting for the game to go under $10. As a AA developer it's even worse, you are forced to go with discount on launch and even then some faggots say that $15 for a 60 hours long 9/10 game is too much.

I don't think PC will be able to continue that way for very long, there's always talk about how every one is now porting their games on PC but the sales and profits are fractional. At this rate it's going to scare console buyers and these middlemen will be forced to either die or make shitty mobile games for Japan.

Its not the same thing at all.

Standards and taste are two entirely different things.
Consoles can't stand up to my standards because they are technically inferior, always, sometimes so much it ruins an otherwise great game. (Dragon's Dogma being a great, relevant example)

Its not that I don't dare engage, I've posted my steam profile here before, though it doesn't cover half of what I play - I just don't care to based on your responses and attitude until now, I can't 'win' here, and victory means "have a conversation that makes sense" here to me.

If you want serious, reasonable replies - do not start out next time with 10 knee-jerk insults like "buh only assfaggots, buh you bought bamham, cuntcuntcunt"

I play console games too, I will own a ps4 as well in time - its just lower priority gaming for me, since its technically worse always and I'm only forced to do it because of exclusivity deals, due to my standards it does feel like I'm forced to lower myself to it.

The fact that you are outright defensive about an inferior experience of a software title which we all know theoretically could do better, is just scary.

Confirmed for having no PC knowledge whatsoever. Don't believe the memes, you can get by with a PC half that price for as long as you want and still be able to run games better than on a console. I built a modest build about 2.5 years ago and have literally never been unable to run something at 1080p and 60 FPS.

The point is that this mentality is killing video games on PC and if it spreads will kill the whole industry as we know it. You're supposed to buy a couple of games that interest you per year for full price on release. Not buying AAA shit you never even launch for $5 on every steam sale.

>>323474420
Games aren't cheap anon. If you don't throw money at the industry they won't throw games at you. I'm not talking about buying the latest Bethesda shit on release but smaller games that interest you and that deserve funding, something like Drakengard 3 for example.

It's in different proportions on consoles. And the console gamer mentality is different. When a new game that you are interested in is comming out you pre-order it for the sick LE. When a game you are interested in PC comes out you wait for the next steam sale.

well A, Nvidia hates your freedom and you shouldn't buy their products

and B you should be buying 2 non X Fury cards and a free-sync 4k display if you want to get into 4k gaming, though 4k is more about productivity than gaming, the free-sync display is going to be cheaper than a G-sync display and is going to make gameplay much smoother

In addition due to AMD's better performance in general at higher resolutions and crossfire scaling, 2 non X Fury cards aren't very far behind 2 980tis in 4k, an 980tis are faster than Titan Xs

BF3? I'm trying to decided whether I get that for PC or console atm, I've never played BF only Medal Of Honor. I liked MOH and saw the metacritic rating was bad, so I guess fos rating standards changed after the whole COD & BF annual releases started. It's fucking confusing to figure out what's good now looking back at old reviews and complaints.

So far MW1, MW2, BF3 and Bad Company 2 seem like good ones. I got BF4 on PC and the rest are cheaper on console used in stores.

maxing out GTAV and witcher 3 still requires a dual card config at 1440p, you could consider a 1440p @144hz or 3440x1440 @75hz monitor with 2x gtx 980 TI's and have a comfy experience. if you're set on 4k with a single card setup i'd wait for polaris and pascal.

>>
I bought a prebuilt cause i was being a lazy fuck and there's something wrong with it but it's hard to diagnose. Something causes the CPU to spaz out and overheat drastically, and often has far too high idle temps (though sometimes temps stay low so it's definitely capable of running properly.) It's not a heat sink problem because the original one was defective and they replaced it with one that works fine. So now the company thinks the motherboard also has issues, is that probably it? I tried resetting the motherboard but that didn't help at all.

Also, does anyone else feel that both CPU and GPU temps, even when not too excessive, seem to limit performance more than the hardware itself? Should I have a separate water cooling system for that, or does anyone know of a cooler that's effective enough it can't overheat even running heavy loads on a hot day? There must be some way to drastically push temperatures down better than a small water cooler + fan
>>
>>323477615
As for tables it's a tossup on hardwood vs other cool solid designs with glass. But for shelving and entertainment centers/TV cabinets the particle board is fine and way better for the price and more color options. Now sofas and chairs some manufacturers use ply/pressboard in an inefficent way with bad bracketing ao it can break. Top name companies utilize it pretty well and are sturdy enough for people under 300lb, but like I said they make the undersides all pretty with stapled canvas so you can't see what the frame is made of. Pressboard is also lighter weight for shipping and physically arranging.

People have different needs for different tasks. Not everyone uses their computers just to play games, not everyone needs an SSD or a $200+ CPU to play MOBAs and CS:GO.
The 390 can't utilize all 8GB of VRAM because Hawaii is not strong enough to handle resolutions that would require higher VRAM usage, but the 970 is an equally horrible choice as well for what you pay for. You don't need to upgrade graphics cards every generation, or every other generation for that matter. Your card and CPU will not stop functioning out of the blue just because the latest and greatest came out.
Etc etc

Thats in CDN, not USD.
Also new games in Canada cost $79.99 for consoles.

And I didn't just build it for videogames, I'll be working, drawing, animating, and spendig most of my time doing all sorts of shit on this PC. You could easily make this PC for $1,200 USD and play any game at all at 1080p 60fps, I'd bet anything more than $400 in regards to a custom PC will blow current gen consoles out of the water

This is actually the reason why people buy consoles. Because PC markets lots of choices (R9 280x vx GTX 960 or some shit like that)

It's simply easier to just buy a PS4/XB1

More of this ignorance. Just because a few games are better optimized for one brand of cards or architecture does not mean that it's the superior choice overall. You're not going to be playing the same games over and over again for the rest of your lives (apart from MOBAs, but you don't even need a dedicate GPU to run those these days).
Choose your graphics card based on your budget, what resolution you're playing on, what games you prefer (generally, RTS tend to be more CPU reliant, AAA games tax GPUs more than CPU, etc), whether or not the card is a good fit your your case (blower vs fans, double, 2.5 or triple slot thickness, etc), and what incentives there are for using that card or brand of AIB.

>>323479981
I doubt that, because people are still posting here rather than playing games. A PC has more uses than that and most people eventually take advantage of features on their PC that they didn't know existed. But likewise, people should not spend out the ass for a build in the hopes that they'll get into programs or games that require higher-end hardware.
Start low and build up.
