Had to redirect cashflow towards a new guitar amp so I'm still sitting on a 9700GT and a 1280:1200 (5:4 lol) monitor.
Honestly, it's sorta cool using an old monitor like that. But it sucks too since I'll have to upgrade the gfx card (prolly GTX750) for shit to look decent on a 1080p monitor.
Spent 400€ on the build so far, gonna be another 300€ until I'm happy with it.

I don't want to get GAYMING™ stuff too but it has good features and because it's tax-free, i can it for cheap. I was going for Asus Z97-A then i found this for the same price

And 4670k is already an overkill, i don't even know why i'm getting it instead settling down with 4460 or something.

I'm using two of them right now. They're sort of meh. Black levels are shit, and the ACSR (dynamic contrast, basically) is utterly useless, simply making dark scenes even more dark to the point you can't see shit, Capn. It's not the worst monitor, and I'm just going to buy a third for multi-display gaming, but that's mostly because I already dumped 300 on the things, and they're not THAT bad. Just heads up, I'm not really happy with them. Would've felt better at $130. Heads up, these things are regularly on sale, so don't you fucking dare spend more than $150-160. I think that's what the promo code I'm seeing on it is good for?

I can't speak for the speakers, since I don't use them, but like you, I was looking for something I could optionally use for consoles and most monitors with an audio out also have speakers. That may be changing, thanks to HDMI, so look around some more. Either way, even if the speakers are OK, I probably wouldn't use them. Just do what I do and use your PC speakers, unless you are literally setting this display up somewhere divorced from your PC.

I'm not initially going SLI, but I'm leaving it open to upgrade into it.

Plus as you can potentially tell, I'm going to be making the rig a more "silent" build, with the STRIX GPUs, water cooler (will get SP120s for radiator), fan control, etc.

But yeah, I definitely intend to SLI for Oculus Rift and eventually a 120/144hz monitor.

Yes, 4670k barely performs any better than it. Intel mostly focused on power usage than performance boosts so you're good for an another 2-3 years. Just don't run it at 5ghz and shorten it's lifespan

It won't be very long before upgrade, and again the purpose of the build is having power when it needs it, silence when it doesn't. Having marginally more lower idle means that PSU will actually not operate its fan.

>>254221401

It's already the limiting factor. It was when you built that PC. Check your GPU and CPU utilization when gaming sometimes.

Get 8320. It's a lower-binned 8350 that operates on slightly lower clock speeds.
>>254223764
You're welcome m8. Although let me tell you something, if you're going to play vidya on 1080p/60hz monitor i'd settle with GTX770 because it won't make a difference whether you are playing at 80fps with 770 or 100fps with 780 since your monitor doesn't support anything higher than 60fps.

I'd say get 770 for almost $200 less, or even a 760 then can upgrade it once GTX800 series are out. Don't waste money on anything that you're not going to use. That's why a lot of people are making fun of people when they buy 16GB ram for videogames.

It looks good but that motherboard looks a bit on the shittier side. I'd try to spend a little bit more on something that is at least decent, with heatsinks on it's mofsets at least.

>not having a gun to cool your chipset
>>254225171
It's not like you're not allowed to buy ram in the future anon. You can always get a second pair of 8gb. And there's no such thing as future proofing. Yes GTX 780 might perform better than 760 for example but they utilise the same technology, the difference is quantitative not qualitative. The card you spent $500 will become obsolete when the newer generation is out.

If the difference is $10 go for it. They are exactly the same chips but one has gotten luckier on the silicon lottery. You can overclock 8320 to 4-4.5ghz but hardly anything higher than that while you can push 8350 over 4.5 with ease.

FX6300 or 8320. Since you have 4130 already, i'd say 8320 to an upgrade worth at least.
>>
>>254226270

FX 8 or maaaybe even 6 depending on pricing.
But really, the difference won't be that noticeable unless there's a lot of multitasking involved.
As for the cooling, it entirely depends on what heatsinks you use.
>>
>>254226250

what do you mean by "silicon lottery"?

It seems the consensus is the 8350 or 8320. Im gonna wait for the anon to reply to me so i can figure out what that term means and make a decision lol

It's the second digit I'm concerned with, not the first. Bulldozer is fantastic at multitasking and mediocre elsewhere; a newer architecture will give a substantial boost.

When they are making those CPUs, it's an imprecise process and not every CPU can manage to run at the same clock speeds. 8320 and 8350 are the exactly the same chips, but one manages to run at higher clock speeds than the other one.

How much can you spend on the motherboard ?
>>254227720
6300 is good, built a PC for my cousin with it and it's pretty good.
>>
>>254227720

Whatever you do, just get a processor with Vishera architecture, its great

Go with the 8350, you wont regret it and it will last you a fuckhuge long time
>>
>>254227129

>8350 or 20

If the price's is close enough, play safe and go 8350. If there sufficient difference in price, as in my country which is around 30%, you could get the 8320 and overclock it a bit. How well it will overclock depends on luck (whether you get an actual under performing chip, or merely renamed working one), hence what the anon said about the "silicon lottery".

It just functions very well in terms of gaming and rendering, when i upgraded i saw quite the substantial performance boost, and its not nearly as expensive as other processors out there such as the i5s and performs just as well for gaming

Just go for a 6300, they're overclockable like a motherfucker so you can get good GHz. If you're scared of overclocking get a 6350, it's a 6300 factory overclocked to 3.9. I had to think about it for a while but game performance is mostly on your gpu, cpus help but not enough to warrant spending that much more ya know?
>>
>>254229272
what case is that
>>
>>254230561
Not really, it's always good to properly cool your CPU whether you're overclocking or not. You don't have to buy it initially but i'd strongly suggest you do get it.
>>254230216
FX series don't have any decent mATX boards so if you're going to get mATX case, Intel is your only option. FX6300 performs a bit better but nothing groundbreaking

I'm not scared of overclocking per se, but Im not sure I would feel the need for a while to come.

>>254231379
Im not desperate for mATX, it's whatevers cheapest for me unfortunately. I can still use normal ATX in a non full sized tower right?
>>
>>254231998
yeah, a mid-tower which is 80% of the cases out there support ATX boards. Full towers are for E-ATX boards mostly. If you want to get FX6300, Gigabyte 970A-UD3P is a pretty good board but i'd suggest you to keep your i3 because it's good enough already

Glad i was being helpful

>>254223798
start with an electric razor to get the worst off, you'll blunt the blades really quickly if you try to take a lot of hair off with a normal one. Also counter-intuitive but men's razors are better for legs than women's

Next upgrade will probably be SSD + GPU in two years time. I have no rush playing the latest games on Ultra. I'm fine so long as I can play on 1080p and 60 fps.
