Build

Hybrid PC

by DopeHuman

Description

I'm calling this a hybrid PC because I used some nice things and some strange things to improve my build.

I built my first PC about one year ago, It used an AMD 6300 and some crappy $50 motherboard. I realized that it was missing some key things like the ability to run almost every game and to be quiet (it sounded like a jet turbine) I decided to expand from what I made before to something that has power.

I replaced the processor, motherboard, RAM, and the tower with new and improved parts but I decided to keep the psu, heatsync, HDD, and the GPU. Now I have a fast and QUIET Pc.

I have done a few strange things with my setup like how I put the whole thing IN A CLOSET. That was probably the best thing I've done with my whole setup, its super cozy and spacious in here. And the other strange thing I've done is that I've taken two modified shoe boxes, taped them together, and used a nail gun to put it on the back of my desk. I've put all the extra cords and the power strip in them causing the ground area to look really clean (as seen in the photos).

Sorry for writing an essay but id really like to hear what you guys think!

But how do you get into those drawers?

With the recent increase in the price of rx cards the last gen nvidia cards have become a great lower end choice. I would sell my 470 if I knew how to and probably get a 970 or 1060. Cable management is good. I still think the i5 is a great choice even with the r5 chips. The frame times between the 7600k and the 1600 are not that different, And the extra frame rate makes it a better choice for just gaming in my opinion. Combine that with the much better overclocking which improves frame rates and times they are a great option if you can get them for cheap like I did. Great build overall.

Although the 1600 outshines in multi-core performance and as gaming progresses in to the future, they'll be geared towards that, which means the 1600 is a great future-proofing CPU that'll age much better than the 7600k.
