I like what you've done. May I add that it appears you could flip the PSU over. This can assist in cable management. But really nice job.
How is the graphics card? Are you able to play most games at highest setting or close to that?
I have two GTX 760's. One will max out alot of games including BF3 at 1080p. Exceptions like Crysis 3 and Metro LL you won't be able to, but you can lower the settings a bit.
Thank. I've been considering this card for awhile but also the 7870 ghz edition. This is going to be my first build. So do you think the 7870 would be a better entry level card or should I just go straight for something a little better like this 760? Oh and I plan on it being a microATX mid tower build.
Well, I would go with the 7870 just because it's so good for the price, but the GTX 760 is pretty good too. If you ever need more performance you can just add a second Card.
Thank you. I think I will go with the 7870 then. and itll save me a hundred bucks. haha. Thanks again for the info
http://gpuboss.com/gpus/Radeon-HD-7870-vs-GeForce-GTX-760 it's not worth getting for the price for a little boost
oh never mind. the price went up a bit. haha. Still. 60 dollars cheaper.
The HD7950 is nearly identical to the gtx 760 but it's cheaper and it also comes with 3 free games.
I've had this card for about a month and I just recently had an issue with it (well, still not sure if it is my Mobo or my GPU). Basically, running firefox or youtube while gaming would crash the display drivers, and it got unbearable. I underclocked it by 100mhz in MSI Afterburner and it has stopped the crashing, but I was hoping it was something Nvidia would have patched by now - pretty common problem with the Nvidia cards I hear. Anyways, my previous 560ti was amazing so it could just be a faulty piece of hardware. But yes, I did my research and found the 760 to be the best power for the money before it all gets really pricey.
yeah my friend had the same problem but it was with the amd 3400 APU. It's windows that causes it. If it takes longer than 2 seconds to respond windows assumes it has crashed and resets itself. ir thats what I read. Im not a super tech guy so I could be wrong. But yeah I spent 6 hours trying to solve before I said **** it. haha
nice! I was just thinking of getting the NZXT Vulcan as I've seen some cool mods done on it. How's the case for cable management?
With a semi-modular PSU, it's fantastic. The right side of the case is slightly bulged out so that all the cables fit no problem. No regrets on this case - add the big side-fan they make for it and it looks great
Hey, I'm new to PC building and was wondering if it would be possible to fit another hard drive in? If so, I'll probably use this.
Yeah man, I could fit 5 in here if I really needed to. I have 2 right now and it still seems roomy. Some advice if you are a new builder - just be aware that this case only supports "micro atx" motherbords (they're tinier than regular motherboards)
How is the case,I'm going microatx because am going to be travelling frequently, can it fit in a suitcase cause it looks a bit big in the pics?
I love this case. So easy to take to lans or move around. It will fit in a large suitcase.
