[UPDATE 1] Bought a gtx 1070 to replace my 760, probably going to have it in mid july, also going to order a new motherboard to replace the gigabyte since it has some issues and i do not feel safe with it. I might order the MSI 970 Gaming motherboard. I also bought some logitech z150 speakers, they're pretty basic, not very loud but its fine fore watching vids with friends.
[UPDATE 2] Got a new motherboard, this is the UD5 instead of UD3, yet it seems better but i already got two crashes since i got it, wondering if the problem is something else than the motherboard...
Hey guys, this my first build ever so mistakes were made, i had a basic hp pc that wasn't very good for gaming and then some months later, i had my first job so i thought it was time to get a real gaming pc but i didnt know as much as i do now on pc parts...
Now that i know a bit more about it, its not as good as i tought it would but for now it still does its job i guess. I can play most of my games at the highest settings: fallout 4, Battlefield 4, DOOM, Far Cry 4, Star wars battlefront. Some games i can run pretty descently but not at highest settings, Grand Theft auto 5, Elite Dangerous, Ark: Survival evolved, Project Cars. Yet some games i can barely run at low and lag: Star Citizen, Kingdom Come: Deliverance.
Recently i had a problem that i thought was coming from the motherboard but turns out it was the power supply so i changed it for the corsair 750w ( i had a 600w, so i thought getting a better one for later upgrades). BUT thats not all now i really think i have another issue with the motherborad, the first PCI-e x16 slot isnt working anymore and the dual channel slots for the ram are giving me blue screens so i have to put my ram and graphic card in the other slots. (wich i will change sometime this summer)
There's nothing much to say about the cpu cooler, its working fine even tho i should probably have got a liquid cooling one since its not an Intel cpu but it still doesn't heat up that much even while playing i get about 45c and about 10-25c when browsing internet
Now lets talk about the graphic card, this card is pretty good, it dosen't heat much too but since its not a high end card it wont run games as good as i first thought it would and i think about buying the htc's Vive later, so i might buy either a gtx 1080/1070 (still waiting for the prices) or wait a little to see a possible price drop on a gtx 980ti. ps: i had oculus rift dk2 and it worked pretty good on the gtx 760 so im expecting it would still run the CV1 as well even if its not recommended.
Overall, i think its a good build but i need a bit more performance coming from the GPU and if someone were to build something similar i would probably recommend to get a better cpu cooler and motherboard.
PS: i also have my windows is installed on my SSD, wich is much better than my old pc, totally recommend doing this.
Pretty good processor for the price, definitely recommend for cheap gaming build.
Doing a good job even if i have an AMD processor, would recommend to any intel cpu users.
Great product, good speed, low price, would recommend unless you really want DDR4.
Good product, had no problem with it, the price was a bit high when i bought it but now its cheaper so i might recommend looking for higher storage unless you only want to run your windows on it.
Good product, sometimes i feel like its a bit slow to load something when im not using it after a while, because my windows and most programs are installed on my SSD i suppose it take a little time to start it. Pretty cheap for the storage i think. I would recommend looking for a SSHD wich might be faster than the HDD yet cheaper than a SSD.
This is the best gpu i ever bought yet, i had a gtx 760 before but needed something stronger for coming games and possibly the htc's Vive. Works perfectly, not louder than my previous and gets much better performances wich is expected. 5/5 would buy again.
Great product, the size is good for most motherboard, graphic cards , cpu coolers. Would recommend to anyone looking for a cheap case with good space. Includes two fans wich i didn't notice on the case's description. Lack of some space behind to hide cables.
Good quality product, i bought it from a little computer store wich made me pay like 50$ more than on internet wich got me a little mad when i noticed it..
I guess most of us take this to install windows or a few games we still have on our shelves but it does its job without making too much noise, would recommend.
Windows 7 is great but i would probably recommend windows 8 even if a lot of people complain about it, i got to use it for about a year and when you know how it works i think it can be better. Yet i wouldn't recommend windows 10, it slowed down every computer i've seen, it installed a lot of useless programs and comes with bullsh*t settings.
Wireless Network Adapter
Great prouduct, i have 30mb/s download and 10mb/s upload and i never lose signal with this. Would recommend.
Nice cheap fans, does its job well, would recommend.
Great monitor, with 1 ms and 144hz its a good deal if you're looking for a 1920x1080 monitor. 24" is a good size for gaming in my opinion. Would recommend.
I was used to a cheap hp keyboard with flat keys on it wich i liked better over big keys like this one but it was time for me to change it because some buttons had problems, yet i think its a good product, the programmable buttons were a bit annoying at first because i wasn't used to have buttons at the left of ctrl and shift so i kept clicking these instead but now its fine. I love the backlit keys, much easier to play at night. Would recommend, like most of logitech gaming products.
This mouse is very good for gaming, the only con i see is that its wired but good wireless mouses are much more expensive so i had to deal with the wires.. Would recommend.
This headset is good for gaming and "skyping?" the only cons i see is the wire, i keep rolling over it with my chair and the little mute/volume controller is too far from the headset on the wire so when i put it on a desk or my chair's arm it keep smacking on the floor so now the sound is a bit glitching when i move the sound wheel, i wouldn't recommend for making youtube videos or streaming but would recommend for gaming.
I bought these speakers mostly for watching vids or play games when i got friends with me so i didn't need high quality speakers but these ones are good enough. If you wan't to listen to loud music i would recommend getting better quality and louder ones.
