AVG is junk.
I use Defraggler and CCleaner for decluttering SSD and HDD files and what not.
Like Morgan123 said, "Use the Built-in Windows Defender" and then I use MalwareBytes for malware security or full pc scans when something seems wrong and I suspect something's (a virus or what not) is in my PC.
+1 for the op phone on the last phoo
Nice CPU (I had the same one)
Upgrade that GPU, 1060's where I'm headed
The Keyboard is loud to type on, and the mouse is kinda small for my hands, but for $30 and a beginner build I'd say I enjoy it.
Your build would do every think you're saying, I'd recommend a better power supply. But the GTX 960 will most likely run your mostly CPU intensive games at around 144 FPS, but remember, the human eye can't see above 60 so anything about 60FPS is unnoticeable.
My 760 pulls 100+ fps on CS:GO Maxed out
Your motherboard will already have an ethernet port, you'd only need if you know that you need a second ethernet port, as for the WiFi card you'd only need that if you plan on using you PC with WiFi
You're going to need more than that, you'll need an i7-5820k and a 1080 SLI to even LOAD the game.
Before all the 380 fanboys are here... GTX 960 is a great card dude I went NVIDIA over AMD for the GeForce experience and CUDA for video rendering. Every looks great except that case is WAY overpriced, I'd recommend the NZXT Source 210 it's about $50 CAD.. Also just wondering why a Network card and Wi-Fi card?
Your cable management... Woah. GTX 960 is what I was going for, settled with a 760 GTA V maxed settings (turned off the VRAM cap of 2GB) and runs at a smooth 50FPS, if you can't wait for a 960 a 760 (used) is cheap and kicks some serious butt.
Seeing your graphics card not in the top PCI slot is a bit cringy but overall nice build, also how did you leave a review for parts
Nice, I'd recommended a 960 since it's newer and you can get the 4GB version which will probably help in some games.
GTA is recommended for a quad core cpu, so it probably does make a difference
Semi or Fully modular is what I'll be going for, and another 8GB is going to be coming aswell
Enjoy it I will, thanks!
Thanks! Upgrades will come indeed, probably starting with the powersupply
Whoa, Serial and Parallel ports?!?!?!
Found this on eBay... http://www.ebay.com/itm/Dell-Optiplex-790-3-1ghz-i3-2100-4GB-RAM-DVD-RW-No-HDD-Desktop-Computer-/371598895251?hash=item5685052893:g:NzoAAOSwYmZXDW7d#viTabs_0 but only leaves ~75 for a powersupply, gpu, and hdd... I'll definitely watch for yard sales and start visiting thrift stores in my area
EDIT- Found this sexy powerhouse (lol) http://www.ebay.com/itm/Custom-Built-Quad-Core-Desktop-2-50-GHz-Intel-Core-2-Quad-Q8300-4GB-RAM-No-HDD-/121954174745
Still +1 for the price range and still you managed an SSD in there
That cable management...
I got my i5-4590 and my 8GB of RAM with no problems, except the CPU box did look tiny bit beat up (I assume that's from shipping)
Takes DDR3 but still has IDE... Wow
That cable managment could use improvements
Don't get the CX PSU
What about Jet.com?
You'll probably be fine, but if you plan on overclocking anything you should upgrade to a more reliable PSU and get 450w
H81 has 2 rear USB 3.0 ports, B85 has 4, H81 has 2 SATA 6Gbs ports, while B85 has 4. they can overclock, smaller scale CPU's like the Pentium G3258, but i5 or i7 wouldn't go well... I would say an SSD is worth it if you want crazy fast boot times and you can load some games depending on how much storage you buy, to have wicked fast loading times on those games. So H81 vs B85 - B85 has a couple more USB 3.0 ports and a couple more SATA 6Gbs ports.
i5-4460 is better than An FX series chip...
Nice, I'm building similar to you, I got the Corsair SPEC-03 White with a free case fan (plus the three included), you can check out my list on my saved lists, but this will be a nice build, just that power supply is sketchy...
lol, you're the dan off of LTT i assume?
I can show you how to push too hard
Too bad that processor might bend. But really nice build
Did you not read the description m8
Seasonic's one of the top dog brands. lots of people say the CX series aren't good since when it comes to gaming and programs that run the system at full load those PSU's aren't good at handling it. Meaning there's a big chance for shocking your whole system, also a lot of reviews of CX's show that the can have LOUD coil whine
This is almost identical to the build I'm buying parts for... Hopefully it's a great budget build
Ehh that CX is a bit sketchy
If You budget allows you, try to go Skylake like pegotico said and Please DO NOT I mean DON'T get the power supply, I don't know how it even has 4-5 reviews but the CX series has extreme coil whine and loud fans

I really liked how cheap this build was, that's why I stole it from you and changed some parts, Intel i3, corsair vengeance ram 2x4gb, GTX 750ti, cleaner looking case, and a better psu for upgrades in the future. http://pcpartpicker.com/user/Poker1059/saved/R2Fkcf
people on ltt sid it will help with video editing and multitasking
Intel FTW, I plan on later down the road upgrading to an i5 or i7 if i can save enough, but like i said down the road
Seems like the FTW just has the better cooling, which could deliver better performance, but they both had same cuda cores and ram so I'd assume that one just has better cooling than the other. If you plan on having good airflow in your case you shouldn't necessarily need the FTW, so with good air flow it's not worth the extra money. BUT the ftw does have a SLIGHTLY higher core clock, which since the difference is so small, a bit of overclocking on the non-ftw should make up for the difference
Someone on LTT said that instead of a pentium i'm better off with an i3 with hyper-threading is that worth it?
Points for left over savings!
I saw it in a contest thing that LTT has for the coolest looking builds, im pretty sure this one made it to the top 3
if you go i5, which i5 do you plan on getting?
I've read the AMD's stock coolers aren't the greatest.
