To me it looks like the case has like, zero back panel room to fit cables behind.

I really don't know. Its such a weird spot for that card to be in, like, it's a really niche spot, and not in a good way.

I never understood what nvidia was trying to accomplish with the 3gb model of the 1060. It's not as powerful as it's 6gb counterpart (obviously) and it's barely better than a 1050ti, and gets beaten by a 980ti pretty handily.

I mean, its not really that difficult, I do it from time to time when people come to me. I started out building them for my family and after that, I started building PC's and selling them off of facebook. I use facebook personally because i'm only friends with people I know, so the client base is more trustworthy than say craigslist.

See, I hate it when people comment this. Why buy an H series board, when you could just buy a Z series and only have to replace one part later on?

It's going to be really interesting to see how mining turns once it becomes impossible to mine with consumer grade hardware. Mining has gotten exponentially more difficult in a short time, which is the reason you see people doing things like this and buying 10 gpu's to mine with. Back in the day, you could mine with your grandma's crappy old Dell optiplex and a halfway decent gpu.

It's fine, and is often used for upgrade purposes, they more than likely couldn't afford a better cpu at the moment. The bottleneck wouldn't be enough for them to notice anyway, if there is one at all. We're talking like a 1-5 fps difference in games, provided they aren't playing something like Civ at max graphics and an assload going on during the game, but that's like, a worst case scenario.

I always think it's funny when people pair i7's with lower end gpu's. It's like starting in an RPG with kick *** armor, but a really average weapon.

I'd probably buy Intel if the price was right. The price bump for a very small amount of performance gain is insane.

Why not just google the benchmarks? If you're looking to get it, just upgrade to the ti version, its way better performance for a small bump in price.

Those wires are meant to be bent around like that, that's why they're made the way they are. Trust me, you'll be fine. They test all of it by doing substantially more stressful bending and stressing than you'll be doing.

If you have a bottom mounted power supply, get it off the carpet, rise it up on a piece of wood or something. There's no research to be done about it. You'll shorten the life-span of your machine and on the off chance a capacitor blows, you could set your house on fire.

  1. A single stick of RAM is bought when they don't have the budget for full 16gb kit at the time, but plan on upgrading soon. I just did it with my ryzen upgrade.

  2. Even if you don't have an overclockable cpu, an aftermarket cooler isn't a bad idea. It extends the life of the chip and can also keep you machine much quieter than a stock cooler could.

I'm not going to call you dumb, because I don't know you, but you seem like you are new to this whole PC building thing.

Oh for sure, but what I was saying is its not something you HAVE to buy upfront when you buy everything else. Put that money towards a better GPU/CPU or hell, maybe even a better case because cable management is important. Then a little while later, you buy the SSD, install windows onto it, and boom, you're ready to go.

I don't think you know what an SSD does. All it will do is slightly improve load times. Sure, that's nice, but not mandatory by any means, why buy an ssd up front when you can put that extra 50-60 bucks towards a better graphics card? All of my games are on a mechanical hard drive and they do just fine, load times aren't bad at all.

I was more interested in Ryzen than I was with Intel's new stuff, since Intel comes out with a new "architecture" every other year. Plus, I can't imagine Coffee Lake being that much faster than Ryzen given Ryzen just came out this past year. So I imagine the difference will be small, if any. Also, the slower RAM only hurts you in very specific scenarios. Doing things like basic tasks and gaming (like I do) you won't be able to tell a difference in RAM speeds, since it's a non-factor with those.

Nope, I'm just kind of an AMD fan boy I guess, that and the added performance of coffee lake doesn't really entice me as I don't really do anything that would benefit from the boost, which won't be much. I also got a kickass bundle deal at micro center and needed to upgrade because my hardware was 4 years old (except the 1060, obviously)
