How come you didn't mount the radiator up top?

Throw that I7 out of here. Grab a X5650. £50 for six cores man. You won't regret it. Make it an absolute beast. Nice seeing X58 boards floating around. Underappreciated these days.

Ah, that is much better than the others. I thought you asked for cheap, that's arguably one of the best gold rated power supply series.

Depending on where you are the Seasonic M12 and S12 are good buys as well as the Antec High current gamer modular(Make sure its the modular version) and the EVGA B2 series and go whichever is cheapest .

Looks good. As for the graphics card it isn't bad and still performs nicely at 1080p. As for your DSLR the pictures look good and as paskowitz said underexpose your photos and try get away with a lower ISO. Another thing would be to get a 50mm prime next and a good flash. What camera have you got?

Good finds and that explains the good power supply. Did you get the parts from eBay mostly? Hardwareswap on reddit is good too.

Pudget systems does a thing or you can use an ornament. And yes, that's what I meant. All I can say is you chose strange parts and this would probably be more in line. http://pcpartpicker.com/list/4Cwy4C

I really wouldn't say it's the best bang for the buck PC and maybe look into support that GPU as the PCB looks stressed.

It's not that it's not good it's just like have a Celeron with the 1070, it'll work but it's not really what you should be pairing it with. The power supply is the most vital part of a pc and so you should never skimp on it. The G2 series are a good common series but there are other good ones that are slightly cheaper but of the same quality if you look.

I'd try and return it or at least get a better one. It's an alright power supply for a APU or 950/r7 360 but not a 1070.

Why such the cheap power supply? Really wouldn't pair it with such a nice card.

Yea, I did start to move towards a 1440 144hz but they're just so expensive and I suppose it's just GAS.

I was probably going to second hand anyway. That was my concern making the 1070 more appealing but at a much greater cost. I suppose it would be best to hang on to my 970 till 1070 drops or it dies and EVGA are very generous with their RMAs xD

How do the 970s perform, could probably get an answer elsewhere but you've just done it and I have a 970 and was wondering how they are now in SLI?

Use your built in flash but use a diffuser or a a random object to use as a deffuser.

Only think that needs upgrading really is the Power supply and if they wanted more CPU performance a 3770k or 3570k would do fine.

I have a friend who had an RM power supply and it killed his card. Also, even if CWT isnt really bad they have to compete with Super Flower and Seasonic where they have no chance at competing no matter how many Nippons they throw in.

More reliable than what? A potato? If you get a bad power supply it has the potential to take your computer with it when it dies. The CX series are for office builds, not gaming pcs.

For the price there are much better PSUs and if you say about customer service remember EVGA make power supplies. I like Corsair but their power supplies I'll never touch as there always better power supplies and it's not something I find Corsair to excel at.

The CX series are nowhere near the worst. That goes to CIT and those brands but from well known brands the CX series are down in the bottom of the tip with Corsair saying themselves they are for basic systems.

Eh, they are. The only half decent RM is the 850w but even then for the price there are much better alternatives.

Like I said, personal preference. And I shall agree on the R9 390s price bracket making it a damn good GPU for the price.

Fair point. But the 380 is slightly better than the 960 so a better combination would be the 380 and SSD. But If you prefer Nvidia that is your own decision. I'm merely trying to get more bang for your buck.

Ok , in all fairness it's not terrible or the worst out there it's just not the best option for any sort of gaming build and seeing it be put in gaming builds grinds my gears. That's just my 2 cents.

Yes, but for the same price or slightly more you can get one that is higher quality meaning there is no point in choosing a CX power supply.

"CX Series power supply units are an excellent choice for basic system builds and desktop PC computer upgrades. " I would hardly class a Core I5 and GTX 960 a basic system build.
