So this is actually a rebuild from my first pc. I got some new parts and stuff so i figured i'd post it. Some background of this pc: I traded my old dell xps 420 for a i7 4770k and a mobo at a computer shop. The motherboard wouldn't work but the cpu did. I later found out that it did work but that was after I bought a new motherboard. Some wierd setting in the bios. I also got a gtx 950 which was an ok card but i need something more powerful. So I sold it on craigslist and bought a fury a few days ago.
Added some generic no-name brand ram form a dead pc. I now have 10gb
Some 2 dollar cold cathode lights from the year 2000. Who needs leds when you have these lol.
I added a ssd. Best thing I ever bought. I never had an experience with these before. But I heard great things about them so I had to buy one. My pc boots in like 15 seconds.
I got a great deal on the fury. $260 from newegg. Awesome card but REALLY long. I really didn't realize the size of this thing until i unboxed it. This thing is huge. I had trouble fitting it in. I tried putting it in but the pci bracket actually bent a capacitor on my mobo. At this point I was really scared. I just bent it back into place and pushed down on it. I then ran to my desk and tried to power it on. Thank god it booted and there was no harm done.
So I had to find a way to make the card fit. I went and grabbed a pair of pliers and a hammer. I bent my 2.5 bays inward so it would fit. I dont look pretty but it fits.
But I think im having some problems. I should be able to max out gta v at 1680x1050 with no aa or advanced graphics. But it drops to like 40 fps a lot. I've watched videos of people maxing out the game on 1440p. So I reinstalled the drivers and reformatted windows and I'm still having issues. I think the problem is the psu. It might not be supplying enough for the card. I would really like to hear some opinions on this.
Future additions: -New case: Probably get a phanteks enthoo pro. I really hate my case lol. -New cooler: The one I have works but I really can't OC with it. Thinking about the 212 evo or the cryorig h7
