Holy ****.. if only I had that much money. Have you done any benchmarks? What were the results?
I'm so happy to support this website! I've been using it since freshman year, and now I'm a senior. Thank you for all you do :)
For those people, I would replace the Athlon with an APU. The GPU came out of a broken school computer
Thanks! Non-modular PSUs combined with a lower budget mATX case makes cable management a little hard.
My honest feedback is that you should have just gotten an i5 and a cheaper board, then gone with a 970 or a 980 instead. Good build, though.
What kind of games can your friend play, and what kind of framerates is he getting? I was going to buy a similar build for my brother.
I'm afraid not. I am at school, on the crappy school computers right now. I can describe how it looks, though.
The motherboard is not in the case. This is purely a boot test to make sure all of the parts work. There is no LED. The CPU fans don't turn, and neither does the PSU fan, so I doubt it's getting power. Tested the PSU, and it works fine for the paperclip test.
How's that headset working for you? It's on sale right now and it looks high quality.
I am switching from my Logitech G230 because the mic failed. How is the mic quality on it?
How's that SSD working for you? About how big are the keys on the keyboard? Are they big enough for fat sausage fingers like mine? +1
How's that CPU working for you? I plan on using it in my build. +1 for de bloo
Go with the AMD if you have an under $600 budget (which you do). If you just want to build a working system for now, the Pentium one has a better upgrade path, but AMD gives more bang for your buck.
Yeah, I will wait, but sadly, I need extra money for new peripherals. Thanks for the feedback!
Do you like that SSD? +1
What do you think of that SSD? I was thinking about picking it up because it is much cheaper than the Samsung 840 Pro that I was eyeing.
Now that you have had this build for a while, what do you think of that SSD? I was going to get the 840 Pro, but my budget will not allow that.
What was it built for? Perfect for gaming and editing! +1
Linux is better for coding purposes (and it's free), SSD isn't a necessity if you've never had one, pictures aren't necessary.
What are you using this for, Facebook games? Kappa
14-year-old here, planning to build the same. I'm getting it because my current laptop can't handle my coding and Photoshop programs for school and such. It's kind of a reward, kind of a curse (gaming pun ftw). Anyways, how are all of the parts holding up? Can it max out League of Legends, Smite, DotA, CoD, BF4, anything among those lines?
My budget is $1000, but I figured my parents would allow me to get a monitor and improved airflow. They won't let me get a job to pay for it myself. :/
Thanks! It's going to replace a 720i monitor from 2005, so pretty much anything is better.
I'm fourteen too. high fives
Edit: Can you check out my part list? http://pcpartpicker.com/user/Fennex/saved/bXPzK8
How's the monitor quality? I'm thinking about picking one of those up.
+1 for the cats!
