Have you built that pc yet?
I'm about to and would like to get some opinions on this.
I mostly followed logical increments

Yes, and it was such a fucking waste of time.

Most games I've been playing don't even require such high specs. Outside of shitty console ports.

Scrap that Scythe bullshit and get a Coolermaster cpu cooler. Costs less too.

>1 stick ram
What the fuck? just get 2 4x4. Dual channel baby.
>Seagate HDD
Enjoy your HDD failing. Get a Western Digital

I would also throw in a 650W PSU as a just in case. Either then that, it's whatever.

I'm saving for new house.

no pc for me

Logical increments is an awful site to get the best price range for literally anything. The purchase shouldn't be an AMD CPU anyway, and an i5 everything-but-GPU is some $350.

The next card line announced for Q2 is supposedly 10x as powerful, so getting a (full price) 970 is ludicrous.

get a 4690k

overclock
dont get an i7
get dual channel ram 2x4gb 1600mhz
if you arent an nvidia drone just get a 380x

thank you, I'm already correcting it. I've been considering a 380x but /v/ so is so torn on this, that I just went with the standard 970.

Depends on if he stays at the over-$550 category, which is unnecessary.

>>324031683
Awful.

I have a 2k gaming pc and all i do is play emulated games , and occasionally starcraft2.

why this over a shadow rock 2 which costs half as much?

That's pretty much my computer exactly. No complaints, the only game that it can't 1000% max out that I have is witcher 3 with its hairworks setting.

I really appreciate the input, but is it really worth taking the risk of getting a faulty 2nd hand product? sure I'd like to cut the cost, but how trustworthy are these ebay sales?

Shut up.

>>324032112
Is it a risk if it can be sent back? The only which can't are as-is listings.

>GTX 970

You do realize that it's already slower than the cheaper R9 390 and will be about 50% slower when it comes to directx 12?
>>
>>324032298
I do not. I have read arguments about this on /v/ for weeks, people of both camps keep claiming different things and post benchmarks conflicting each other.
I simply don't know what to believe anymore when it comes to 970 vs 390
>>
>>324030014
get a unlocked i5 and a coolermaster fan
>>
>>324030796
I built a similar rig. It's awesome that you can play most new games with better graphics and shit than consoles, but now I find myself playing a lot of strategy games, older games, and emulators (i.e. shit that a toaster could run). As much as other people on /v/ share similar stories, I can only assume that's a fairly common issue.
>>
>>324032182
No you should stfu ok, i bought myself and alienware desktop about 1.5 years ago and it runs perfectly, it runs every current game on max with 70+ fps and hasn't has had any hardware failure, the only reason you should ever build a custom pc is, if you're going to do some extreme NSA shit.

You guys all say this shit to him and then he is gonna buy a new comp thats cheaper and in 3 years when the next fucking xbox comes out he will have to rebuild it, Just future proof bro and don't listen to the salty kikes that can't play anything besides old games because they are so hipster
>>
>>324032681
no one is doubting that an alienware rig is giving you solid performance, but it's price/performance ratio is terrible. no get out
>>
>>324032681
>>324032790
Yea Alienware is good shit but you can make the exact computer (same parts) for cheaper yourself.
>>
>>324032740
>in 3 years
Anon, do you remember how long the 360 lasted?
Expect that for the Xbone. Possibly even more.
>>
>>324032740
Yeah I don't think he should just get a dell, I was just saying that he'll probably realize that a lot of pc exclusives don't require very high specs. It's great that I can play whatever new AAA game I want on max settings, but desu I only play a new AAA two, maybe 3 times a year.

I envy Americans for how cheaply available pc parts are in your country. I'd be paying the same price for both cards anyway
>>
>>324032521
The directx 12 issue is the most important one, the current amd cards will be much better at it due to architectural advantages, early bechmarks already proof that.

So if want a future proof card the R9 390 is the much better choice (not to mention that AMD cards usually get faster over time than their nvidia counterparts thanks to continuous driver optimizations)
>>
>>324033260
that's all I needed, R9 390 it is then!

Wait until Pascal and Polaris come out later in the year, it would be a shame to build that PC and have it be only borderline good enough to play games in VR.
>>
>>324032927
I was makin a point
>>324033083
Thats true but I play Ark: Survival as my main game atm and thats a fucking AAA specs game and its an amazing game. Trust in the gamers who get out of gaming and into making games. We haven't completely lost all hope in the industry.

What's a good mini/micro build with a budget of $750-$1000? Mostly to be used for emulation with an occasional recent game.

It's arguably not "future proof" even still. The next cards are such an upgrade that there's no reason to spend so much now.
>>

>Seagate Barracuda

Its like you WANT to lose your data
>>
>>324033719
yeah but won't they also be much more expensive? I'm not willing to pay more than $400
>>
>>324033260
>>324033341
>>324033719
Also, you should probably get benchmarks before taking blatant word. The DF video states that, although DX12 performance is some 40%-60% better within the 390, the 970 was performing 40% better without DX12 at all. They state that it's probably a driver issue, but if that's the case, the meme is real.
>>
>>324033848
There are always lower, medium, and greater priced cards. The lower is about $240 ordinarily.
>>
>>324033848
It's likely the $400 tier card from the next series will have far better performance than a $400 card from the current series.
It's a good idea to wait anyway because you can often find current cards on the cheap when a new series comes out, whether due to stores getting rid of stock or people selling their cards second hand.
>>
>>324033876
so at this point I'm completely lost. I might just wait for the next series instead of gambling now, since both the 970 or the 390 might be a mistake
>>
Wait, are i5-4XXX processors still great to buy?
Well, they sure were some time ago, but isn't the sixth gen better?
>>
>>324034105
10x the performance is intense.
>>
You're not really getting the 3.5gig meme card when you could get the r9 390 for 10 dollars more right?

There's about a 10% increase per gen, but that doesn't always result in better game performance. ITP: the original i7 vs contemporary CPUs.
>>
>>324034176
Because the 970 is a good card and nvidia is a more reputable and dependable company.

No one wants AMD garbage.
>>
I'm getting mixed signals here. Some say r9 390 / gtx 970 are already waay overpowered, others say I should wait for pascal which has 10 times the performance.
Do I even want that if I dont do any video rendering?
I just want to play some good games, senpaitachi
>>
>>324034547
10x performance is that potentially wherever.
>>
>>324034547
If you can wait until summer it's certainly a good idea to do so. The next gen is gonna be much bigger upgrade than the previous gens thanks to the new 16nm process.

50-100% performance increase is realistic.
>>
>>324034547
Do you have a working GPU that lets you play games? If so wait for Pascal. If not, and you need an upgrade now, get one of those now
>>
>>324035248
I'm on a laptop that has done what it needed to for 5 years now, but I figured I wanted to get a decent rig now that I have some disposable cash.
I might just wait it out though
>>
>>324034126
If it's Devil's Canyon unlocked it's good. If it's regular Haswell it's shit unless it's a locked CPU you can't OC anyways
>>
>>324035490
If the laptop still plays games ok keep using it. Chances are Pascal won't even be here until next fall though because delays are common. You could also build your PC and buy a cheap used card like a 280x someone used to mine, for like $100 or even a shitty 760 or some shit and use it till Pascal. The rest of your PC will be good and you'd just need to replace the GPU later
>>
I want to switch to PC gaming but can only spend $500. Anyone know of a build that will let me get the most from this price range?
>>
>>324035849
Intel Core i3-4170 3.7GHz Dual-Core Processor
ASRock H81M-DGS R2.0 Micro ATX LGA1150
*Mushkin ECO2 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600
Seagate Barracuda 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM
XFX Radeon R9 380 2GB
Rosewill REDBONE ATX Mid Tower Case
EVGA 430W 80+ Certified ATX Power Supply

something like this

you don't get a i5 in that price range, he could go amd though, but that's not really better in current games
>>
>>324035849
>>324037071
>>324037143
To be fair the best would probably be to add ~$70 and get a quad core, I really wouldn't get a worse graphics card for gaming.

No point in putting this card with that processor.
Not now and certainly not in the near future.
Also the 4 threads meme is just that a meme.
