You gotta up that RAM bro. 2 gigs on an i3?
>>
>>556291763
Dude, clearly you need to upgrade 2 things if your rating is that low.
Upgrade your hard drive and your processor. Seriously all that RAM is going to waste.
Get an SSD and a high rpm 500gb HDD.
And get a fucking iseries processor. An i5 should easily make that computer run like a fucking nigger who just stole a kilo of cocaine.

The only reason I have not bought an i series processor is because in all this rig only cost me about $250 after all the upgrades. I know the Xeon's are old but they are dual quads and that is good enough for what I do. I have had it for 2 years though so i series is what I will be going to next.

Understandable.
Also don't waste money on an i7. If you have a mobo that supports overclocking (or have the knowledge to make it do so) and i5 is all you'll ever need. Shit, even without overclock the i5 is still the best bang for your buck.
Also seriously, SSDs improve performance drastically.

Boot drive is an OCZ RevoDrive X2. Still the fastest SSD I've ever seen.

The 580s are starting to die (random black screens and shit while in games), but I'm hoping they'll hold until the 800 series comes out. Might have to settle on a pair of 780tis and use one of the 580s for PhysX, though.

Yeah I am planning on getting a better monitor once I have the desk space to fit one. I currently use the one listed + a 50" Panasonic Plasma (Don't give a fuck about LED/LCD bullshit, look at a plasma and tell me it doesn't look fucking gorgeous. I dare you) as my second monitor.

I also have to replace my motherboard, as it came with bent pins (I bent them back and they work fine now), a dead fan port, and a dead RAM channel. Kinda a bitch, but I'll get a new mobo soon enough.

Unless the 50" TV is 4k, I'd puke at the upscaling.

What?

If you get a 4K TV the upscaling is just going to be exponentially worse. Imagine pulling 720p content all the way to 4K without a decent algorithm like Spline.

Your CPU is aging as well. A 660ti, 670 or 680 would all be good choices for the CPU you have right now. Or if you perfer AMD a 7970 would also be good choice.

However those gpus are hard to come by now so you're probably ready for an upgrade all round.

>>556307370
You running the stock heatsink? If so I'd suggest just grabbing a closed loop liquid cooler as opposed to upgrading the processor. Cheaper, can do it now, and then if you still want to upgrade the processor later you can still use the same cooler. Idk if 880's will be worth it when they're brand new. I'd recommend the 6GB 780's, I'm probably gonna wait for the 6GB 780 Ti's personally, but they're gonna be expensive as fuck.

660 will be a good investment. Maybe wait till the 880's are released to drive down price (If that's a concern).

There are no i5's for your 1155 socket type. You will have to opt for an Intel Core i7-3770k ($325) to prevent you from changing your motherboard.

Peripherals are entirely up to you. You can go for an i5 if you want to change your motherboard (as you want dual SLI compatibility), unless you really don't like your case I'd only recommend changing it if you want to go up in mobo size (Most likely to accommodate dual SLI)

You're about ignorant as fuck. I build computers for a living, and I can promise you, on equal hardware, Windows 7 kicks 8.1's ass performance-wise. The only plus for 8.1 is that it is capable of better video when gaming. Still, that's not reason enough for me to want to use it.

Those are dual 2.33 GHz Quad core processors, not single 2.33 GHz processors.

Xenon's are server chips. They're intended to be used with large amounts of RAM.

Nice Vidya Card bro

>>556312360
>only one 780

Nothing special. Get back to us when you have two in SLI with another high-end card for PhysX

>>556312465
The case I have is really poorly made so I am going to change that. I am hopefully going to get the NZXT Phantom 630

I assumed I could get an i5 I guess I will have to change the motherboard after getting my GTX. I could always get one 660 then get an 880 when it's price is down and build use this i3 build with 660 as it all should be swapped out.

Screenshot or you don't have that setup.

>>556313125
I would get another, it's not as if it'd take long to save up, but I don't need anything better right now. Post your set up.

Just built this, still need to get monitors.

>>556313358
I don't. I'm rocking two 580s right now with my old 295 as a PhysX card, but the 580s are slowly dying and I'm hoping to hold out until the 800 series is released, but might have to settle on a pair of 780tis.

Kek.
Spent so much on your PC that you couldn't buy your own games, huh?
Feels good not overpaying for performance that I don't even need whilst still getting the full experience out of my games.
FX-8350 + HD 7950 here, I can play any game I want @ 60fps and by not spending all that money on my hardware, I was able to afford pic related.

What a joke.

>>556313292
That'd be a nice case, real easy cable management! You could grab a 660 then an 880, but you won't be able to run them in SLI, so unless you're gonna slowly buy enough parts for an entirely new build, I would recommend sticking with 660's.

But if you're looking to change parts out slowly, that could work as well.
>>
>>556313972
Okay, sweet. I am hopefully getting a 660 this month. I will probably put money by and buy a full new setup around christmas time. Any good motherboards good for SLI around £100-150?

>Implying I use my computer purely for games

I use my PC to make money doing 3D animation, design, or special effects. Games are a hobby. I'll gladly opt to get better performance and cheap out on a couple games. If you're looking to play games might as well gone with an Xbox or a Playstation, dumbass.

>>556314247
I can't say I know a whole lot of motherboards, I did a boatload of research on all the top-end ones. Wish I could help ya, but if you're looking for an i5 i'd recommend getting an 1150 socket board, as they have a whole lot of options.

>>556313806
Also, you purchased 173 Games, and you're insulting ME? Holy fuck dude. Have you ever seen one of these?

I'm fucking dying over here! Motherfucker is calling me broke, yet has paid for 173 games. Jesus dude, you don't get out much do you? How many of those games do you play in a year? 20? 30? The rest of it is wasted cash. If only you used less on games and more on your PC. Tisk-tisk

Love the case though and the build all round

I need a job...
>>
>>556315809
Thanks! I gotta replace the GPU with something that fits the theme better. I'm hoping AMD will launch the R9 3XX series soon-ish. So I can get a Sapphire 390X, the black/blue cooler and backplate would be PERFECT with my build.

will provide specs if anyone is interested. the green light on the left actually is and LED strip that goes around the whole window, so it actually moves in a circle controlled by an arduino uno

Really surprised I'm not seeing more 4770k's paired with GTX 770's. Seems like EVERYBODY is going for that combo now a days.

>>556317000
Neat if you have a spare Uno sitting around, but can be done for much cheaper. I should do more cool shit with my Arduino
>>
>>556317000
I'm interested in your specs. Also, what are those two circles lit up by LED's? At first glance I thought it was a reservoir for a custom water loop, but I see you have a self contained Corsair CPU cooler. So what's the deal?

>>556317357
im eventually going to get that LCD mounted in a different spot and have it display my core temps, I wanted to give arduino a shot and see what i could do with it
