Can I ask why you went 4690k and not 6600k? You probably could have saved some money, and holy that psu is overkill. I would have opted for an EVGA 650W G2 and used the 60 bucks to get an ssd.

it was only 20 dollars extra

EVGA P2 850W = $135 EVGA G2 650W = $90

Sorry, only $45. There's no way you need 850W.

It's not like its hurting anything though. And it leaves him room for expansion later. I do agree with the 6600k though. To be honest, Microcenter usually has the i7 6700K for about 280ish. but hey. Who cares what we think. As long as you enjoy the build Luis.

Great budget build! If I get a 1080p monitor, I will get a GTX 1060 with it :D

Well, rumors say that the 1060 should be as good as a 980 :/

Good budget build bud. As was mentioned by other posters, you could've went with the Z170/skylake chipset and probably saved a few buck and gained a little performance from it. As for your issues with gaming currently, they will continue until you have a dedicated gpu. Integrated are great for low end games but anything even mildly intensive will need the gpu. 2 choice from me on the GPU for a budget build would be the gtx 1060 or the rx 480. both should have no problem fitting into this build. If you have a choice and don't mind waiting a little bit, go with the GTX 1060. Roughly the same price as the RX 480 and my hands on experience with the RX 480 left me a little underwhelmed. Be sure to post when you get that new 1060 in there bud. New pics too. Let us know how the fps changes. Congrats on the build. Feel free to check out my build. Its a constant work in progress so any feedback is appreciated.

Problem with older CPUs is that they aren't as..... refined? Yeah. I'll say that. They draw more power and put off more heat then their modern day counterparts. My rig has a custom water loop and idles around 27C. Depending on how hard I push it (and I've tried pretty hard) I've gotten as high as 70C on water. According to Intel's Ark page, your max temp on that cpu should be 72.72C. To test it, download a program like AIDA64 and let it run a CPU Stress Test. It will monitor the temps right on the screen. Your temps will go up pretty quick. I usually set a comfort zone on mine. I don't let my cpu break 60C unless i'm testing. Under load while gaming, I usually don't even break 50.

As long as you don't put a heavy overclock on it you should be fine the way you are. If you decide to overclock, you will need a new CPU cooler. To get a decent aftermarket, you're looking at about $30 usd. For around $55-60 usd, I would recommend the Corsair H55 or H60 AIO water cooler (I've used the H60. Great product for a great price). Like I said though. You should be ok with the stock cooler as long as your CPU isn't constantly over that 72.72C that Intel recommends (your CPU can handle higher but it could decrease the life of the chip) and you don't overclock it. If you want to overclock, get a new cooler so you don't fry your CPU.

Here is the Intel Ark page if you wanna check it out. http://ark.intel.com/products/80811/Intel-Core-i5-4690K-Processor-6M-Cache-up-to-3_90-GHz

Forgive me if you know some of this but I don't know how familiar you are with PC so I'll keep it simple. Definitely not questioning you're skills though bud.

First -Figure out your PCI-e slot. You want to make sure you plug it into a PCI-E x16 or x8 slot.

Second - Hook up your 6 pin or 8 pin power cable. Idk which one the GTX 1060 is using off the top of my head.

Third - Boot your computer and go to the manufacturer's website and get the latest driver for your card. You can use the disc that comes in the box with the card but it is usually out of date by the time you get the card and install it.

Fourth - Once your new driver is installed (you may or may not have to reboot the computer), open up CS:GO and watch the frame rates take off. ; )

I'm here to help if you need anything else bud. Best of luck.

You'll be fine for the 1060. Wait for benchmarks and after market cards.

Will run games like Rocket League at 45-50 frames per second. Don't expect much for gaming before your graphics card.

Bad decisions in the component choices , still a good build but if you're planning on doing SLI remember GTX 1060 doesn't support SLI ....so that PSU is more than overkill .

  • 41 months ago

You can still SLI (kinda) with Pascals new LDA and MDA modes

"New Multi GPU Modes

Compared to prior DirectX APIs, Microsoft has made a number of changes that impact multi-GPU functionality in DirectX 12. At the highest level, there are two basic options for developers to use multi-GPU on NVIDIA hardware in DX12: Multi Display Adapter (MDA) Mode, and Linked Display Adapter (LDA) mode. LDA Mode has two forms: Implicit LDA Mode which NVIDIA uses for SLI, and Explicit LDA Mode where game developers handle much of the responsibility needed for multi-GPU operation to work successfully. MDA and LDA Explicit Mode were developed to give game developers more control. The following table summarizes the three modes supported on NVIDIA GPUs" ~Guru3D article

like what component?

The fact that you went with last generation components with the z97 platform( cpu, motherboard, memory) and you didn't save any money, in fact you may have spent more than it would have been to buy z170 components. Not to mention the power supply as I mentioned above.

ok well i already spent the money. what im asking will it be good paired with a gtx 1060

Could just go with an rx480. You can definitely downsize the PSU, when you put all the parts in it shows you the estimated wattage requirements at the top. You can go with a 550w or less even.

You're using integrated graphics, hit down your settings a bit.

Depends on your game settings, put them on low and try again, or use a GPU instead.

so does any one know if that wire is going to be in the way of the graphics card

Hey,

I am also doing a similar build, but I went with the newer CPU and motherboard. I am also waiting for the GTX 1060, and hoping that the price drop down a bit. I was planning on getting the Corsair Spec-02, but then decided to change my SSD to 240GB, and get the Corsair Spec-01. This build will also be my first build, so let me know how gaming performances work on your PC, once you get the GTx 1060.

Here is the link to my build: http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/list/mzz29W
