More pics please!! :) And a few benchmarks if you can. Sick build though!
How is the monitor because for$1400 it seems a bit expensive for what it is?
Your tubing seems pretty spot on cant even lie :)
Many of you are simply not reading his description and what he plans to do with the water cooler...Great build though!
+1 for Linux ;p
Your 1070 would be great for 1080p @ 144hz, but 1440p you'd definitely have to lower setting to get 100+ fps.
People definitely overuse the word bottleneck....
Astounded at the craftsmanship! Course the components are great too but that exterior...something else. +1
BTW what camera was used for the pictures?
Also curious, what fps do you get in gta 5?
Very similar to my first build that I completed over two years ago. (i3-4160 & 750ti) I'm still using it and all is going well so you should have a great time with your build. Also , great cable management with those psu cables, enjoy your build!
Would you mind posting some of your fps results playing games you own at 1440p?
What resolution are you gaming at?
Agreed 8gb held me back in Rust especially where now my pc can use about 9gb with rust, and minor programs running in the background.
Possibly the first kaby lake build here?
And is that a Miata? Looks noice!
Of course especially because you can sometimes get them cheap off ebay. About how much fps did you get in titles with whatever your resolution might be?
I think his cpu would bottleneck with a second card.
How did the sli 960's do in games?
Btw love the build, and the white theme was very sexy! +1
Very nice first build!
Agree with the comments above ^
Yea expand please because that motherboard is included in many builds and comes with a surprising amount of features. Is there anything consumers should watch out for or that you've experienced that sheds a negative light on this mobo?
BTW to the submitter, great and clean build...must be great not having to game and work on the laptop anymore since you got this beast XD. +1
Listen man keep up the great work. F**k what all the haters say. You make good money, support yourself, and enjoy to spend your money on things you like. NOTHING WRONG WITH THAT! +1 For the build!
What do you think?
For $200 there are very few if any better options. The 290x performs better than the 470/480, and is essentially the same card as the 390x.
What is the issue with the current ram you have?
How is that i5? Does it ever limit you?
No you do not need to purchase an extra cooler. The stock cooler will do just fine.
Never tried it, but on Rust, BF4, Borderlands 2 I get 70 or above on all med settings. Ark though is known to be very unoptimized. One of my friends has a 980 and cant get above 70 on all high so..
"From there I started buying one piece at a time. I was gaming with a $600 PC that had an i5-4440 4GB of RAM 1TB HDD and an R9 270x. I could hardly play any games without my CPU getting severely bottle-necked and was hard to get 60FPS 1080p on high settings."
Thats pretty weird that you could get barely 1080p 60fps. I use an i3 and 750ti, 8gb ram and get around 70 fps on med settings. Probably the ram was your issue.
Nice build though! Love the all out style!
To be honest I would say this a great build for the price. It strikes a perfect balance between money consciousness, style, performance, and a good upgrade path. +1 For the sexy build, hope your friend loves it!
Get 8gb of Ram ad go for either a 750ti or the new 1050's. 16gb ram is not needed in a low-mid tier gaming pc.
OMG I feel sorry for you buddy! I got the same monitor for $200 USD. Anyways though, glad you put it all together nicely! +1 Great Build
Pretty good price imo. Nice build man!
How much did you get the two gpu's for?
If you are getting an i5 and dont want to buy a new motherboard too, the i5-4460 will do good for you. Of course an i5-4690k would be better but you would need a new motherboard capable of overclocking. +1
Oh yeah dude, please dont spend that much on any coding classes until you go to college. Coursera, Udemy, and Youtube are the best places to learn ranging for FREE-$30,
Same questions, if you have decent content I will sub
Yeah for me its all the syntax errors I keep getting that I don't understand, I will have to find a list of them and what they mean. Thanks!
Foolish me for thinking this website for the elite build I guess! Thanks for the support.
On max settings, average most maps I get around 110, but with a few settings altered I usually get around 175 fps....except for infernew which i get like 150 on low-mid settings for some reason...
Thank you man!
Dam that's a nice deal I assume for the cpu, and thanks!
Nice man, I go to the queens school too! Thanks for the support!
How hard is it to learn? Because I am having a decent amount of difficulty XD.
Thanks to the two of you XD.
I agree! Thanks man!
Thank you very much!
hahah Yes my dad got me started at a young age.
It does good in practically all of the game I play. I don't care too much for eye candy, but all the games I play stay above 90 fps, at medium settings for certain games and ultra settings for others.
Oh ok, you got me nervous there XD. Now i definitely give this build a +1
Nice first build, if you ever feel like upgrading your gpu, your cpu will do decent for a while with a good overclock. +1
