I mean it's a good idea if you plan on adding more things inside you're computer like a pcie ssd, or a sound card but with what you have right now the best price to performance cou is the 6800k. But if you want the 6850k go ahead and buy it. It'll allow you to not worry if you do decide to add more things in the future. It's still a good CPU and you'll be able to do a lot of work with it as well. :)
If you was using more peripheral that required pcie slots like hard drives or sound cards or more graphics cards then you'd want to shell out the money for a 6850k but you only have 2 gpus so you'll be good with a 6800k. They both overclock about the same, and the 6800k is cheaper. The only get one is more expensive because it has more pcie lanes... something you wouldn't be using, so it'd be a waste of money...I was only trying to help save some money (it's an expensive build, so you can afford to waste the extra money if you want, but $150 is still $150 that could go toward something else that you might want.) just trying to offer some help man.
If you're only playing in 1080p your system is well suited for it. Try overclocking the CPU and gpu to see how much better performance you can squeeze before getting a new set up. The CPU is fine and the gpu is really good for 1080p if you're playing or planning to play at 1440p then upgrade to the 1070.
Also why not get the 6800k instead of the 6850k? You're paying $150 more for 12 pcie lanes you're not using. You only have 2 way sli that won't use all 28 lanes. Save the $200.
His build is a good one if you're only gaming... it could even stream and if you're going to get a z170 motherboard you should get and overclockable CPU. It'll make your computer perform better and to overclock on most motherboards now a days all you need to do is hit the auto overclock button and it'll do all the work for you. If you don't plan on over clocking then get a h110 motherboard it's got all the same features as a z170 but it cost less because you cannot overclock. Also the i5 6500 is all you'll need for today's games (again if you don't plan on overclocking). It'll save you some money.
You technically can overclock that chip on that motherboard if you know how to bios flash to an older bios but if you don't plan on overclocking or buying an unlocked processing anytime soon then just go with a h170 or b150 motherboard it'll save you some money. At the $900 price point you should have an ssd on there as well. The case is up to personal preference but you could go a little cheaper and put the extra money towards an ssd of better gpu.
This might work.
Like what is cheap like $300ish?
Here's an under $400 build its Amd but it'll do the job for your choice of games.
If you save $100-$200 more you could get a way better pc though.
Yes there is and it is......Because he could!
Here you go man it's a 3 part video and it'll groovy through everything. Good luck and have fun with your new pc
True but it keeps the cou cool for longer life span and it's the cheapest ddr4 8gb so yes it'll run st 2133 but it will still work and do nothing to differ the performance. He's gaming not doing any workstation tasks or video editing/rendering.
Here you go close to your $800 budget though his oc is a little more powerful for 1080p gaming this will kill Games
You could even switch the 1070 for a 1060 or rx 480 and be well off and save $100ish dollars as well. Also for games you only need 8gb of ram so if you're only gaming that's all you'll need. Also you can use either a tv or monitor.
I own this cpu and it can be overclocked? I though xeons were not overclockable.
OT: good build, even if you can't overclock it that cpu is great for the price.
A gaming rig for high end 1080 and even possible mid 1440 it's s really good rig. Shouldn't havecto upgrade for a couple years of 1080 is your goal but for triple monitor you might want to add another 290x for max performance.
The locked processors use to be able to be overclocked but I believe Intel stopped that using a bios update so there is a chance that you might have to do a bios flash to an old bios, one from about a month and s half ago, to achieve a cpu overclock. Not too sure about this though, might have to look more in detail later on.
Sorry man here's a little bit of a better one for around the same price as your, but a lot better. If you want to save some money though you could try for a cheaper monitor, case, and keyboard, but those are all personal preference. This one has better per core performance and just better overall performance than your 6300 cpu. The architecture is newer so it'll have newer feature and future support. The gpu is a pretty good one and it's at a good price right now. The ram is ran so no problem thee and the psu is a decent one that'll last you a while.
You don't really need sli or crossfire in a budget pc build so olas long as it works for his needs its a good choice
I have the same case and an 8350 believe me it not the case fans it's the stock cpu cooler. If you want a truly quiet one try the noctua cpu cooler. I can personally say it completes changed the notice from loud as heck to barely audible. It will cost a little though, but sometimes you have to pay for truly good parts.
Zotac has that problem that newer/unheard of companies have trying to get their foot in the door and that is at first their products Weren't that great but as o today zotac is a reliable brand so go ahead and get that 960. It outperforms the 950 and and the zotac one is well built.
I love how the description says I went AMD for price to performance then we see cpu:free, cpu cooler: free, gpu:free, case: free ext. I mean you don't get better price to performance than $0.00 lol jk.
The build is a great pc. Your workstation/pc will do you well for awhile
If youre looking for s gpu upgrade why not look into a used one or eBay one? Here's the r9 270 for about the same price as that 750ti and it beats it in pretty much every benchmark out there. http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/ol/B00GMGGZQE/ref=mw_dp_olp?ie=UTF8&condition=all
Yes it's not going to be new, but used cards can be quote good if you're willing to look for a few deals.
This build is so epic it brought tears to my eyes.
Also your case is like 2 of your graphic's cards wtf?!? But it is a sick looking case, one of my favorite inwin cases.
I see that dream of owning a r9 295 on your screen there. Damn just building the thing and he already think "Damn it's not enough, yet!" He's truly a pc gamer/builder.
Welcome to the master race where your wallet is never enough to satisfy your taste for power!
The build is nice. When you save up enough money try adding a cpu cooler like a 212 Evo and a dedicated gpu like the 260x or 360 for about $110 or less.
This is actually his second build, but the gesture is still the same
Hopefully on its deathbed it didn't take any parts with it, like the mobo or gpu. Just buy a evga 600b for Ike $60 and you'll be good to go....hopefully
I was thinking the same thing, I can see getting the gpu on eBay for around $60 minimum but also the cpu and mobo and psu all for less than $140? Hard to believe. Did you reuse any parts or get any parts given to you?
The build is nice overall, but what do you build if this psu dies... A super computer with quad xeon 12 cores?!
I think he has it from res to pump to gpus then to cpu. I could be wrong but the. Res and pump are on the backside of the case and it seems to go through that gpu block that connects to all 3 gpus to make the water rise then from there right into the cpu and back into resivore.
I know nothing of water cooling loops but I just guessed based off of what I actually can see.
As rock motherboards were pretty bad like 3 years ago but have been pretty good since then, they just get a bad wrap from last mistakes of using lower end parts to buld their boards
An external optical drive from Amazon is like 15-20 usd. I used one on my latest build. Te first pc I built I used a an to install windows, both ways are easy, but the external optical drive is te easier of the two.
Why not just save up for an i7 4790(k) or a xeon 1231 v3 of you want multi thread help? I know try cost more than an 8350 and a 970 motherboard but those are te best overclockable/non overclockable cpu'so in my opinion for average people doing multitasking on their pc. I know the 8350 is a good cpu it was my first cpu, but if you want more production done just save up better hardware? Though if you're justvtryong to build it now, the 8350 will do nicely.
That all depends on budget and willingness to upgrade in the future. If they're on a tight budget (500-700) I'd say amd unless they want to upgrade later on then I'd tell them to get a pentium with a z 97 motherboard and spend the rest on a good psu and gpu. Also it depends on what people are trying to do with their pc and what their budget will get them. Intel does have stronger cores but for people looking to create videos or make music or movies on a tight budget amd can be a very viable option.
I didn't realize it was little moving room. I more of a high sensitivity person that just flicks my wrist. Its never been a problem to me.
Thanks since you posted this I just read a few articles and realized it is a better gpu. It saddens me that and created a new gpu that performs as well or worse than their previous generation gpu.
The power supply is a concern
It's the same build with. Better quality power supply as not to potential kill your parts of it were to fail at some point in time.
You can change the case and ram to save some money but this'll run cs go and a lot of other games really well at 1080.
This should do the trick pretty well, but if you don't mind some used parts look on eBay for a cheap gpu like this one if yu could get it for this price it'd be a huge steal.
This'll definately play its the Resolution and probably at high+ the 270 is a really good 1080 gpu
Never mind you're correct I did get my 689 and 780 info mixed up. Sorry, for the confusion. Thebloodx is correct the 680 performs similarly to a 960 but that card still kicks the crap out of any console on the market right now, in fact a 580 slightly outperforms consoles when it comes to graphics in most game and is equivalent to other games.
In terms of gaming performance yes, the 970 has .5 more usable vram and is more power efficient but the 680 is just as good in games.
I agree go with eBay for the gpu http://m.ebay.com/itm/321781496729?nav=SEARCH
That's really cheap for something about equivalent to a 970 the Kepler architecture is still damn good for 1080p gaming.
They changed the flash memory in the ssd so it's not quite the same as the original that people reviewed when they first came out. They had good memory modules and changed them out for cheaper crappy ones that aren't as fast on the write and won't last as long over time.
I have a windforce 280x that has never crashed on me and I can play most games at ultra at 1080p so I'm personally goof to have to disagree with you. The 280x is a great card for 1080p gaming but if you can find s cheaper 960 it'll do almost the same in most games and be more power/heat efficient so get that if you can.
It probably s boost clock meaning it'll run at 3.7 if the temps aren't too high.
On the market as of the 1st
Yes dual 970s will beat out a single 980 but there could potentially be issues with down games and drivers. You're going to spend money on 2 970s just get the new 980 ti. It performs similar to the Titan x just a half the vram and a little less computing power about 90% of the Titan x
https://pcpartpicker.com/part/cooler-master-cpu-cooler-rr910htx3g1This is a good sub $20 option that'll keep your cpu with decent temps. Also the highly recommended hyper 212 Evi for about $31 if you want a little bit better performance but for a cheap onego with the first option.
