DVD drive to install Windows and MOBO drivers.

I don't need a $500 cooler, were not dealing with AMD
>>
>>51440522

you can install windows off an usb drive

not that you should buy or install windows mind you
>>
>>51440469
What's bad about skylake? I'm about to buy a notebook and I thought skylake was a good thing.
>>
>>51440549
Oh fuck I totally forgot you can Pirate Windows, I'm a dumbass. Thank you anon, you just saved me 100 bucks.
>>
>>51440469
Whats wrong with skylake?
>>
>>51440424
Prety simililiar to my build, but way less cost effective.
>>
>>51440575
You can install official windows from a USB too.

what is there to rate about this? you bought a 400 dollar Skylake placebpu and built an overpriced system around it and even got memejaws for it, grats
>>
>>51440608
How do I make it more cost effective?
>>
so general build thread then?

>fractal design r5
>2tb wd green
>480gb crucial SSD
>750W Evga modular 80 plus gold
>Saphire Nitro R9 390
>corsair hydro cpu cooler (already own it)
>16gb corsair vengeance pro DDR3
>AMD FX8350 black edition
>ASUS m5a97 motherboard

Total price is £950 I believe. Thoughts? My hope was that I could take this build, then once 4k becomes more affordable slap a second r9 390 in there and be good to go. Am I going to need a 390x instead?
>>
>>51440932
Drop the SSD, its a meme. Use saved money on graphics card.
>>
>>51440932
Also, the FX8350 might do 4k, but the fps won't be too great. If you don't care about heat, buy an FX9590, **IMPORTANT: TURN OFF THE TURBO (or your PC will freeze randomly and the only fix is a hard restart)*** and you should be good. (Source: I own a 9590.)
>>
>>51440967
what graphics card do you think I should get? Dropping the SSD would bring the graphics card budget to £370. It's really not a meme though, I notice substantially faster boot and loading times on an SSD.

>>51440989
thanks, is "turbo" something I need to disable in the bios? Will I have to disable it every time I boot the system or just once?
>>
>>51441037
Turbo is disabled in the BIOS, you only need to do it once. The 9590 isn't particularly overclock friendly, but it comes out if the box with 4.7ghz so that's not really a concern.

Umm, I dont speak euros, I'm an Amerifat, but I'm pretty sure you could get a 980 with that budget. Correct me if I'm wrong.

dedicated graphics is a meme.
There is graphics built in to the cpu, powerful enough to drive multiple high resolution displays.
>>
>>51440553
Nothing, but you could just get a 4th gen CPU/Mobo for $300 less. Save some money, fag.
>>
>>51440424
You dont need a Skylake. Get an i5 4690k unless youre using a lot of image/video editing software.

You dont need watercooling. Get an air cooler.

Get a cheap ass 120gb SSD for your OS with the money youre going to save by fixing your shit.

You sure as shit dont need a Full tower.

>>51440522

>>
>>51440424
Might want to throw in a new air conditioner as well, those Windforce cards will turn your PC into an expensive space heater.

"lol just wait for pascal bro lol it's gonna be huge bro lol I mean I know you want a PC right now bro lol but pascal is the future you gotta wait 8+ months and then another few months for the non-reference designs lol and then you gotta wait for it to be in stock because Nvidia fanboys will buy it up day 1 lol but it'll be sick bro I promise at least 300% better"

Calculators are worthless for anything beyond HS math

>sometimes slower than devil's canyon for reasons
>more expensive

it does have ddr4, but that's about all it has going for it.
