My point was the fact that you said I should have waited. If you had read the description you would have known my reason for buying the parts at the time I did. I got everything listed except for the case, On the first of April.
Why. It is not much more powerful and the 1gb less of vram will cause it to perform worse in some games. Not that many now but in the future it will a lot more. At the time of building this, The cheapest 1060 was $220 at microcenter. Paying an extra $55 for a card with barely better performance and even worse performance in games that use a lot of vram would have been stupid.
No problem. The gt 730 is really just an overpriced display adapter. It is not that much more powerful than the integrated intel graphics. The 460 is a lot more powerful. You could run games at more than 720p if you went with it.
You could have gotten an rx 460 for $14 more. Not bad other than that.
Thank you. It was awesome just building the thing. After a month of gaming i can say it is good enough to play all my games at ultra.
I got that 1tb hdd in the system now. Feels good to have more storage than i need currently, But still enough for the future.
Well in answer to your question about my height it is all about genetics. I did not say cats are hell. I said"Cats are of hell." Big difference. And when it comes to the ssd it makes a big difference. Windows went from 2 minute boot time to 15 seconds. And you also said that you play games for 12 hours a day. That is why i said "Seek help."
Why did you get a 6600k and not a z170 mobo. I understand a 6600 and a z170 because of baseclock overclocking, But it makes no sense to buy an unlocked cpu without the motherboard that can overclock it.
Games like CS-GO and League of Legends would be fine. But outside of esports games you will not be able to hit 1440p 144hz. My rx 470 could probably run CS-GO at 1440p 144hz. But for games like battlefield and any other modern AAA game you would need at least a 1070, Probably a 1080.
I would advise you take that $30 windows key off the list. It is against the pcpp rules to have keys listed from third party vendors. I may be wrong but I have seen the staff commenting about it before. Not a bad build though. If you did get the key from microsoft on sale or something you should say that in the description.
an rx 480 is not enough for 1440p 144hz. You would need at least a 1070. A 1080 is the best card for it. In most cases it is more demanding than 4k 60hz
If your budget is small than go for a used 750ti. If you get it for $30 or less it would be worth it. But a 1050 would be a better option if you can find one for less than $85. If not than stick to the rx 460 or 750ti. You may need to check the os x compatibility with the 750ti though. I just realized it may or may not support the kepler cards.
I go by the price listed in the build unless the description says otherwise. And i do not go through every 1050ti build. Not even close. My point is that an extra $15-$20 is worth spending on an extra 20 percent performance.
Get a gtx 750ti. It is a great budget card that works with os x. I advise getting it used. If you pay full price you should just get a 1050 instead. The drivers are harder to setup with the 1050 but it is better than the 750ti. That being said if you canj find a 750ti for less than $50 it would be great for this build. If you were to do that and install windows in bootcamp your games would run well. Another option is the rx460. It would also as well as the other two. Not a b ad build.
I just checked ebay and there are plenty of 750tis for under $50 i saw a few for $30. If you are ok with using ebay it would be a great deal.
Great cable management. It is hard in the cheaper Corsair cases. I would remove on of the top fans though. You currently have negative airflow which means air will try and get in through the little gaps in the case. This causes more dust and heat due too lack of airflow. If you remove one you will have neutral airflow. Positive airflow is the best but it would require a case with more front intakes. I have neutral because my case only has two front fan mounts. Good build overall.
AMD is not being sketchy with Vega news. They have not announced it officially. This is a great build though. It took me two years to save for my pc. It is a little less powerful for the cpu and a lot less powerful on my gpu. Did you overclock the i5?
The thing about the fx 8350 is that it has no upgrade path. The g4560 is slightly better, And the motherboards are cheaper.
That is why i said good price to performance lol.
As long as you aren't trying to play games at high or ultra the gpu will is fine. An ssd is a more practical upgrade if you are not doing any heavy gaming. It is a good build for the price.
I thought it said of this year. At the time it is still a lot for the 970.
Why not the 1070. It is vastly more powerful. And it is the same price. It is the ultimate 1440p card. Other than the gpu it is a good build.
If you gotten a b350 mobo for $90 you could have gotten a 1500x. The psu is overkill. Good price on the 480 though.
Well here is some advice. Get a better camera. Post more pictures of your PC and not your whole setup. You paid double what you should have for that ssd. The psu is about 100w under what i would recomend for this build. It will work but you only have 100w left at most. After overclocking that space becomes smaller. If you had gone with z170 instead of z270 you could have saved $30 and put it towards a better psu.
Exactly. You could have spen half as much as you did on the motherboard and gotten the same performance. And you could have put that money towards a better psu and case. There is nothing bad with the ones you have, They are just better suited for a $500 build.
Why did you go with z270 without getting an unlocked processor. A z170 mobo would have been a lot cheaper and you can baseclock overclock. And this is not twice as good as a console. It is over 9000 times better.
Not bad. I recommend saving up for a new gpu. In about a year Volta will launch so you can probably get a great budget card then. An ssd would also be a great upgrade. It makes a huge difference. I went from windows taking over 3 minutes to fully boot, To being playing a game in less than 45 seconds after hitting the power button.
Great build. I always recomend the 470 over anything else at it's price point. You and I paid the same for the 470. Great budget build. The 470 is the perfect 1080p card in my opinion. But you should get an ssd for $50 when you can. I moved from a 5400rpm hdd in my laptop to my ssd when i built my pc and windows boots in 15 seconds. Civ 5 went from taking 2 minutes to load to 20 seconds. The hdd is great for large games but it is 2017. You should have gotten the ssd first and just added a 1tb hdd next time you had $40. It makes a huge difference.
I can build a better gaming pc using ebay parts for $150. This build looks like a troll.
If it was z170 i would say baseclock overclocking but there are no old bios versions on z270. Correct me if i am wrong but you can only baseclock overclock with z170. It really does not make sense. He said it can run GRA V. I think he meant GTA V but without a gpu how? If he had gone with a b250 motherboard he could have gotten an rx 460 and an hdd larger than 250gb. I think this is a troll build.
My pc only uses 300w at most. ANd i have an overclocked i5. That 430w would be plenty. And the heat would not be a problem if you have more than one fan in your case. Even if you didn't it would be fine.
The average price of a 470 is between $140 and $160. Yes it will be hotter but with a good cooler it will be fine. My 470 idles between 45 and 55 C. it goes up to 80 rarely and it stays AROUND 70 c under load.
If you got it in the past 30 days i advise you return it. The difference is not that much. You may loose a couple fps but nothing major.
Thats good. You know you can set prices for items when you are completing a build. It is quicker than going back and explaining that you paid less than what is listed.
Kinda. My spec 01 looks a lot better in my opinion. I don't like angled side panel windows and the zigzag on the front panel. Although the features are better on the case in the build.
Saving sucks but the results are worth it. I saved for two years to build my pc. Worth it.
It sounds like it is a 720p screen that is not down scaling.
Please tell me you did not spend as much as a 1070 on the r9 390.
If you had gone with an $80 case you could have gotten a 480/580. do looks matter that much?
He said his only complaint is not being able to overclock the cpu.
You will get 60fps easy in world of tanks.
More ram is always good... If you can use it effectively. If you are only using 12gb of ram at most than there is no reason to put 32gb in your system. But for gaming in 2017 8gb is the least you should have. 16gb is the sweet spot. Anything above that and you will need to be doing more than gaming to justify it.
It is a good psu from what i have seen. I was going to get one for my build but i found a great deal on my cx650m.
I honestly do not think there is a reason to put pff building a system just so you can get vega. It is like waiting to get a new car even though the one you have is unuseable.
Base clock overclocking? Only reason i can see to get a z270 mobo for a locked chip.
Is your motherboard bragging about sata support? It really is older than time.
This build is just bad for the price. The cpu is older than time itself and the gpu is does not exist.
For the same price this will destroy that build of your in everything. And there is a reason there is space behind the motherboard and cut out to the side. I will give you hint. It has something to do with managing those cables. It is called cable management. I know it is hard in that case but it is possible to do if you spend twenty minutes on it. Just why.
Benchmarks are no substitute for real world performance. They give you an average of what you should expect but they do not tell you the whole story.
For some reason the staff deleted the previouse comment. I said that if you wait 3 or 4 generation than your $500 gpus performance will equal that of a $150 gpu. Why did the staff delete these comments?
A stock 480 will beat an overclocked 570. The 570 is just a 470 with better overclocking. A 570 that is well binned may be able to get the performance of a 480 at stock but that would need to be a silicon lottery jackpot. They be similar at 1080p but once you go up to 1440p the difference is noticeable.
I built my first pc 1.5 months ago. Before that i played on the xbox 360. Now i play all my games on ultra and i consider my rx 470 lowend since i got it for $165. I consider the 580/1060 6gb/1070 mid range. Anything above that is highend. In my opinion there is no reason to buy a 960 now. If you already have one, Or you can get it for under $100 than it is a good card. But there are just so many better options for the average price of a 960
