Looking forward to seeing that pc on here. And no problem! :)
"The Macklemore" haha! I love it! and thanks !
and the name's Dylan btw .
This isn't actually my PC.. The computers I build are for my friends that don't know much about PC building.
*Can you define "high quality" for me b/c you're for sure not getting an i7-8700k with two GTX 1080Ti's for £100. lol
Hi! Did you already build this? I can give you a recommended list.
Sorry, I didn't have time to do any actual benchmarks, but here are the games he has played so far:
Fallout: New Vegas: 1920x1080 - Max Settings - Solid 60 FPS (capped)
War Thunder: 1920x1080 - Max Settings - 180 FPS
Team Fortress 2: 1920x1080 - Max Settings - 200 FPS
Check this video out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AmuBztSBC6c
It should give you a better perspective on newer games.
Thank you very much.
Thanks! I'll try.
I did not know that. Haha And thanks!
Honestly, this will look so much better! Everything looks awesome. The H7 is the icing on the cake. I'm doing another build with the M9i. :)
I'm glad you [sorta] found your problem lol. You should wait for what AMD has to offer on December 13. :)
Maybe CPU throttling? Check out these threads:
I highly doubt it's the CPU bottleneck considering this video .
Honestly, I do not know. I can only imagine it's your drivers. My friend handles open world games such as GTA V at a good 60 FPS at stock speed. Did you download the GPU's drivers straight from GeForce? How constant are the FPS drops?
That's odd.. Have you updated your drivers?
Sorry! I skimmed past this comment. I just used a standard #2 Philips screwdriver and a small pair of scissors (my cable management sucks lol). We didn't need any fancy.
I would definitely go with your first part list!
I would go with this. CS:GO should run 180 average.
Are you from the US? Prices may vary.
On 1920x1080 and max settings, about 120+.
On 1080p and max settings, about 120+.
Thanks! I'll definitely recommend this!
Are you saying to upgrade the case in the future? Of course there are better cases, but why spend extra when this case has everything he needs? Corsair cases has its pros and cons same with NZXT and Fractal.
You can do some decent overclocking with the 212 EVO, although; my main concern is the motherboard.
But the case in this build is from NZXT... If you're referring to my Used AMD build then I beg to differ.
The GTX 1060 actually excels on DX11 which is presently the mainstream on gaming. As for DX12, the RX 480 will be better, but again; the GTX 1060 was cheaper.
The 900D looks like a great case, but for that price no way. It's too big, overpriced, and it looked like Dmitry had too many problems for a case at that price. The case looks great for custom water cooling, but my friend isn't into that [yet]. What's wrong with the NZXT S340? It's a great budget case for what it offers.
As for the memory, I'd like to see benchmarks and noticeable differences.
This build is focused on present day gaming. The GTX 1060 is actually cheaper than the RX 480, and they both perform nearly the same. I don't see a problem with the case's cooling, but I do feel like the top fan sitting so close with the CPU cooler's fan is questionable. lol Lowering the ram latency? I don't think there's a noticeable difference. Unless you can provide something?
I should probably put in custom prices. Sorry about that.
Just because it's old, doesn't mean it's not good.. He will be upgrading to Intel maybe next year. He does have the money. Also, considering that the FX-8300 was on sale for under $110.
I have no clue who that it is. lol It's for my friend nicknamed TJ.
Thanks! haha It was really fun to build.
I don't have any exhaust fans, but two intakes: a 120mm (came with case) and a 140mm (came with the Thor V2) in the front.
My main goal was to make this a budget, used parts only build. If I found an FX-6300 on craigslist or any other apps I would have obviously gone for it, but an FX-4300 with a 550W power supply and a cpu cooler was only $40 so that was pretty much a steal.
Thank you! Correct me if I'm wrong, but the FX-4300 has 2 modules with 2 cores each which is basically a 4 core processor. 500GB is enough for me and for $20 that's really good in my opinion.
I have the other heeatsink. I'm not confident enough to actually use zipties.
Plastic + Hot Metal... idk man.
The 280X is certainly a great card.
I'm a simple man. I see good cable management, I press upvote.
Can you upload pics of your pc?
Don't you think you spent a bit too much on that power supply? The CPU cooler is a bit overkill lol. A nice little H60 would have been better so you can upgrade that GPU. An extra $50 would have gotten you a 280X or GTX 960.
