I would go with the Evga card, the Ftw card is very nice and you have Evga's awesome warranty and their "step-up" program Link
If you stick with Evga you will have no problems in case something does happen, you can also check with the using the serial number to see how long it has left on the 3 year warranty and you could judge how long it's been used. When i'm looking for a used gpu it's what i do, never bad to be too careful.
Good to know, but if you have a 8 pin why not use it?
Do you live in the us or outside? I know In the us on sites like /reddit/hardwareswap or Craigslist you can find them for $50 usd but I’m not sure about international.
75 shipped seems high for a 750ti, if I remember correctly they go for around $50, you should be able to find a 960 for around $75.
Noticed in one of the photos your gpu only has 6 pins plugged in at not the full 8, might want to fix that.
Still for sale?
I all ready said the 110 was a great case for the price that is hard to beat.
Node 202, BitFenix - Prodigy, Silverstone SG13, Nzxt h220i, Fractal design nano s, Phanteks Evolv ITX Tempered Glass, Phanteks - ENTHOO EVOLV SHIFT, really just depends on what you'd like your case to have.
Good price on the 980ti, for $280 you can't beat the performance of it! Don't worry to much about the cable management, its good enough :)
I paid $35 for mine and at that price it's hard to beat.

No i just think if you can and want to i would spend more money of a better case.
It felt somewhat sturdy but definitely at a cost, sharp points and little dust protection along with below-par airflow, no cable management and almost no noise cancellation it would be hard to recommend it when someone has a bigger budget. I paid $35 for mine and at that price it's hard to beat. (All of this is my opinion based on my experience with the case).
As someone who has built in the elite 110, i can't recommend it unless you need something that cheap, the only thing i liked about that case was the price, everything else was below par imo.
I was in the exact same situation, personally i know i'm going to get the o11dynamic white when it goes back in stock.
980ti is around a 1070, so it was better to go with the 980ti.
Those two 970’s for $200 is a awesome deal! My 970’s are great for games, glad to see they work well!
Thanks for the help, i took the psu back to bestbuy, the main reason i believe the power supply was bad is cause i put my old one back in and my computer turn right back on.
Well then i would definitely get it, make sure to thank your friend too!
I'd get it, market is around $175 i think so i'd get it, you might be able to trade with someone for a strix plus some cash.
I might have a chance to get my hands on two 980ti kingpins, i hope i get them!
That 980ti Kingpin though :D
Good to hear i called and all they could tell me was they ordered 250 but they wouldn't tell me when i could order one.
I don't know if you can benchmark a whole pc but you can see individual parts.
Your lucky just to get it ordered, iv'e been waiting to order one since they came out and newegg still doesn't have any instock :(
LIan li o11dynamic could work.
Sorry i worded that weird, i actually meant : "They will not be overpriced, like how most pc parts are when they are first released"
Sometime near the end of the year, by then if any new gpu have been released they will have partner cards out and they will not be over priced due to them just being released, same with cpu's. Black Friday and Cyber Monday are also at the end of the year and last year one of the main things i remember was Vega was at Msrp for once, and also you can find end of the year Holiday sales too.
Didn’t they have microcenter before? Feel like it was and one day a year ago it was taken away.
The 1060 6gb will be great and will last a while, i'd just stick with the 8350 and later on upgrade when you want something better.
I'd go with the 970, it's still a great card and what i personally use right now, only thing is your friend seems to be over pricing it a little bit, i check Reddit/Hardwareswap/ often for good deals (it's like ebay but without the extra 10% fee so it reflects a more accurate local price) and 970's go for around $160 to $180 shipped depending on the condition, model and seller, for local deals cause they don't have to ship they usually will take off around $15. Personally if i was selling a gpu to a friend i would even go a little lower than market to help them out but that's just me, also the gigabyte 970 g1 is one of the best 970's you can get. With the money you saved you could start looking into getting a new Cpu/ Motherboard and ddr4 ram but honestly the 8350 while not the best will still work well. With the money you save get a good 1080p monitor (can be had for around $100) and a case. Also no i don't think a "gaming" keyboard or mouse is necessary unless you feel like you need one.
It was available for 12-/+ hours before going to of stock.
put the code in before check out.
Hey i made some changes:
PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant
Cpu: More powerful with a higher boost clock and and more threads, also isn't a apu which wasn't needed. (Please note if you live near a microcenter you could save money here, When you include the $30 off if you buy a motherboard and cpu and the $30 rebate on the 1700 it would only be $5 more and a way better cpu, or just get a 1600 and save a little money.
Motherboard: I just chose this one cause it looks nice and has a good price, i would go with what you like and what you want to pay.
Ram: 16gb is the way to go now days, you could always go with 8gb now and 8gb more later if needed to save money.
Storage: I chose a 2tb drive for more space and it was only $20 more, could go with the 1tb to save money.
Gpu: The rx 580 8gb will blow the 560 out of the water! The 580 will last you a long time and has 8gb of vram which will also be good, could also go with the 1060 6gb depends on what games you play and you have a gsync monitor or freesync monitor.
Case: Went with the corsair 275r with tempered glass only was $10 more and trust me, you want the tempered glass.
Psu: Iv'e used one before and had no problems, good price too.
One place to check would be Reddit/buildapcdeals People link good deals and if you see one here you could save some money.
Hey i could hey you but first i have a few questions, why did you chose a 2200g apu even though you have a 560 in your parts list? Do you have a "theme" or color scheme you would like to stick with? And do you have a microcenter near by so you can save money on the cpu and motherboard?
Hey the first O11d build! I, like you, want to move from my s340 to the O11d, any regrets with it so far?
Thanks for the photos! Especially cause i have the s340 right now and plan on getting the O11d soon! Now i just need to chose between the white or black.
I did, had the fan speed at 70% and while it was not very noticeable in my s340 i had temps around 72c
The Lian Li-O11 Dynamic could work. $129 (doesn't come with any fans), white, glass front and side, separated psu (doesn't show the psu) cube design, and easy removal of both sides. Link here One thing to note is it just came out on the 10th so supply is kinda limited right now, also they plan to release a airflow version where the front is a mesh for extra fans and airflow.
Strix, the $200's less alone would be worth it but also it will have a higher resell value. Also the Fractal Design core 500 has enough room for it and i think it will be actually better than a blower. And the Strix is just a all around better card.
Id try replacing the thermal paste to something more high quality. I had a founders 1070 and after changing it to ic-diamond 7 i got about a 5c difference and had my fan speeds lower.
Your probably just experiencing a heavy cpu bottleneck, did a simple google search and this was the first thing to pop up, im no expert though, might be worth talking to palit about this.
You can check UserBenchMark to see how your gpu preform compared to other 1060 6gb's.
They probably got it used, you can find 980ti's on reddit/hardwareswap for around $300 and a little more for one with a waterblock. Actually just recently had the chance to buy a 980ti with waterblock for $275 locally but i changed my mind.
Just doesn't really seem worth it though, $470 for the gpu, $160 for the waterblock and $40 for the backplate just for lower temps and dx 12 support.
Why consider a 1070 though? 980ti preforms the same if not better than a 1070 and they wouldn't have to drop half a grand for no real reason.
I would stick to evga, they don't mind if the cooler has been taken off or if you bought it used, the warranty sticks with the card and i had no problems when i had to rma my used 2nd hand 970 with them.
The lian Li pc-011 dynamic has been quite popular, hasn't been released yet but youtube reviews show it has good airflow, great water cooling support with up to 9 120mm fans (doesn't come with any) with front and side glass with easy two thumb screw removal, a dual chamber design, and a great price $129 or @99 preorder. They also plan to release a airflow version. Link to the case
1499mhz is a good overclock for your card. everything should be fine and if the overclock isn't stable the card will not boost as high.
Did you get the gpu back yet?
Whats the core clock after the +170? Personally mine gets to 1500 to 1529 depending on the game.
