Jaguar1233's Completed Build: Pegasus

Vairfoley 29 Builds 1 point 6 days ago

Super clean and very sensible build. Great choice of parts. Awesome work! Just goes to show you can get a great looking and performing build without spending a fortune.

(You should adjust the AMD logo on the cooler so it's facing upright. That's my only "complaint," haha)

Vairfoley's Completed Build: Compaq Revival

Vairfoley submitter 29 Builds 1 point 6 days ago

Yeah, it should be able to do that no problem.

Sorry for the late reply. This computer is for very basic home office use. Surfing the internet and word documents. Might not even be streaming any video.

Haha, there's always someone with a better GPU than you, but there's also always someone with something worse!

I didn't have the time to run any on this specific machine but I do have some results from a run I did with the same CPU in a different system:

Vairfoley's Completed Build: Remachine VIII

Vairfoley submitter 29 Builds 1 point 24 days ago

Hm, that's interesting. What games was he playing? Did he have anything in the background? From the benchmarks I've looked at, it seems like it holds it's own decently.

Next time, I might try and put in something different. There's just such a big price difference between 4 and 6 cores. Maybe I should try and find some Zeons...

princeofkolkata's Completed Build: Updating my first build

Vairfoley 29 Builds 0 points 24 days ago

Do you have the CPU overclocked? I bet that'll help it keep up.

It will for sure play them. Maybe not max settings, but it's a great low powered budget card.

You did an awesome job making do with what you had. The 3470 is not a bad CPU at all and the 1050 Ti will chew through most titles at 1080P no problem!

I'd definitely be proud of your build. Maybe replace that PSU as soon as possible though... haha. You can easily spend under $40 for a decent unit. Also, getting an SSD makes a huge difference.

You still got $500 in the budget! I threw in a bigger SSD, faster RAM, and a 2080ti. This is gonna be about the best rig you can get without going up to a TITAN RTX.

I cut into the aesthetics budget a bit with the motherboard. It's top of the line and it looks great, too.

This will work great for your use case. The Ryzen 7 will be awesome for rendering and the 2080 will be able to chew through anything you throw at it.

This is what I came up with. might be worth it to upgrade to the 2080 and get a Ryzen 5 instead:

Vairfoley 29 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

Very nice looking build.

hazmandotmy's Completed Build: Byron 2.0

Vairfoley 29 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

I'd switch to this case: https://pcpartpicker.com/product/X44NnQ/fractal-design-define-mini-c-with-window-microatx-mid-tower-case-fd-ca-def-mini-c-bk-w

Super easy cable management and much easier to get at any components.

Wow.

For your first build? Not fair, haha. Kudos.

I feel like my specs are not feature-worthy

Anybody can drop thousands on all the most expensive parts and throw them together. You built with a purpose and you pulled it off perfectly along with a detailed description and great photos.

I'd maybe swap the 16GB of RAM for a 580 8GB. You can always throw in another kit later, IMO.

Vairfoley 29 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

I agree, I'd adjust the list to get a better motherboard. If you need more cooling, you can easily upgrade the cooler later.

Otherwise, everything else looks good. Maybe get some more fans for the front?

Vairfoley's Completed Build: Remachine VII

Vairfoley submitter 29 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

It all depends on the case and how much room you have. This is a pretty spacious mATX case so it was pretty easy to build in.

I prefer ATX because I have more room for whatever I might decide I need, but for people who know exactly what they want and have limited space, mATX is a great option.

If you can, swap that 2060 out with the 2070. Otherwise, that looks great.

Vairfoley 29 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

Both of those builds look good. A bigger case will be easier to build in and give you more room for cooling or any upgrades you'd want to do later.

I'd maaybbbeeee get a cheaper monitor to cut some costs. I'd definitely be looking for 3200MHz RAM for Ryzen, as well.

I swapped you to an RTX 2070 and a 2600 along with faster RAM. More performance for your money.

Vairfoley 29 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

I'd say switch over to the Ryzen platform and run a 2600 + 970 for a bit until you want to upgrade the GPU. The 970 is still a pretty nice card. That 3930K is awesome, but I wouldn't invest too much in that old of a platform. You could probably make some cash selling it on ebay, though.

I got you a better CPU and faster RAM. Got you a lower wattage power supply along with taking out that secondary HDD for now to afford the upgrades, since you can always throw that in later. 500GB will be enough space for all the games you listed.

It's pretty straight forward. You'll have a USB flash drive with Windows on it that you'll put in before your computer turns on. It'll boot to the Windows installation process and you'll be all set to go! Then, I recommend going to ninite.com to bulk install any programs you might need.
