I understand this is a great build, and that SeaSonic is a top notch company, but couldn't you have gone down and bought a Corsair Bronze rated PSU, and bought a better GPU? Don't get me wrong, the 270 is a great GPU, but you couldn't spent less, on the PSU for a 280.
1300$ monitor e.e... Wished I had money like that to throw around, but sadly, I'm on a potato for a laptop. ;w;
Oh damn... Wow, the 770 and 970 down here in the U.S is at most 10-20$ more than each other :(.
How much more was a 970? I'm in the U.S so I don't know Canadian prices. Sorry ;w;
"The prices below were converted from PH Peso to USD and all parts were bought locally." I assume the Peso to USD conversion makes the USD more expensive of some sort.
Question, howcome the 770 over the 970? +1 tho.
Quite interesting to go with AMD for such a high budget and higher end pc. +1! Shows who the true enthusiasts are.
Don't +1 this, it's clearly a fake. Lol.
I didn't say an FX series, because you have to replace the entire motherboard, but if you have the money, go all for it.
That's true, next thing he should do on his list is probably fork out 20-30$ or however much it is in Canadian $, and buy a hyper 212 evo, and then possibly get rid of the 5800k and upgrade to an 860k.
If he has enough spare money left over, he can throw in some sort of HDD for primary storage. Like he stated, he is selling the extra 7970.
"The microwave" It makes me think that your computer uses some extremely hot components. +1
The 960 is said to be released at 300$, instead of buying the piece of junk, just buy a 970.
Nope, I was expecting it as well, Lol, I guess not everybody has lots of money... Including myself D:. +1.
Rofl, in the uh, the money search thing, it shows your build as the most expensive because your ram sets are 11k each xD
Those are LED lights in his case, lolz. He doesn't say his monitors.
Dear lord, those inflated AU prices, I feel so sorry for you. +1!
Yes! alot better :P
Thank you Jesus lmao
Beast... turns into hulk BEASTTTTTT
Please change the name from beast =c anything with generic name is boring. +1 nonetheless.
I really hope your OS wasn't the most expensive part o.o
Ah okay :), Hope you enjoy it!
Love it! Happy to see AMD Love <3, How are the speeds on it?
G3258 = OC to 4.5 ghz, = better than I3.
You're very welcome bud! Hope she enjoys the build.
Nice budget build, although I would have gone with an R7 260 xP. +1
Awesome, thanks for the recommendation! I will definitely get it.
How was the case? I'm planning on getting that for my first build this x-mas, cable management? And was it worth the full price
The G3258 can be overclocked, and easily oc's to about 4.5 ghz if not more, which brings it to mid i3-i5 speeds, it's an amazing processor.
Replace your psu ASAP, and you could've gone with cheaper ram, kept just the 320 gb to use until you had more money, and you also could've just waited on buying a GPU, you could've just bought an AMD A10-7850k. But this is a nice starting point. +1.
With that price of the 6350, you could have bought an 8320, overclocked and had 2 more cores. Not bad build though. +1
Honestly Nvidia does have AMD beat at power consumption and heat, the 970's are spectacular and have a very low power usage, you can probably even use a 450w psu for one, AMD though, is cheaper, but will cost you the consumption/heat and a bigger psu. So as I see it, Nvidia beat out AMD because with the low powers, means more OC'ing.
Gigabyte I highly doubt, cause it's a very long card with 3 fans, EVGA Ehhhhh maybe, I know Zotac has a small 970, it's the same size as EVGA's single slot,(smaller card) 750ti, but EVGA may be able to fit.
I hope you realize that just because the 3770k isn't OC'able the 3770 still beats the 3570k in terms of performance.
Oh okay, thank you!
Please post when you originally built this, thank you.
Someone explain to me, if so, how is the 4820k better than the 4770,4790? Other than the fact that it's the x79 platform. +1.
You're very much welcome!
Gr8 b8 m8, r8 8/8. Nah, just kidding, anyways. Great build! 10/10, +1.
Oh ok, thanks for clarity xP
Your welcome bro, and the r9 290 I'm getting is only 220$ xP, US prices FTW! And thank you for the reply about the 290 temps!
Idk, he mentioned in the Desc, that he had a hard time with the 100, so I thought he was talking about that.
I wouldn't have spent so much on the motherboard that way I could've possibly even upgraded to a 770, if not, a 270/280. +1.
"ill be upgrading the cooling system to liquid soon" I'm pretty sure the h100 is liquid cooling..?
It was build a year ago, so.. It might have been good for back then.
Amd is so good for budgets under 1k-1.2k like, fr.. ;-;
Finally some AMD love. +1.
Why doesn't anybody love AMD anymore ;(, Could've gotten much more with an amd build :l, suppose it's good for Intel.
An I5 should last you at least 2-3 years, although games like battlefield and some other companies/developers may start wanting more cores on your cpu, but it's a quad core, so you should be fine.
