Fair enough. Nice setup you got.
How come you didn't mount the radiator up top?
You will have a fire with that power supply.
True, but just imagine task manager xD
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.
Would be interesting to know the prices paid and you pulled off the theme very nicely.
Had the same PSU until it died but a tad on the loud side on my opinion. As for the CPU, i'm not sure where you got that idea from but it gets beaten by a sandy I3 let alone a I5 which can be had for pretty cheap.
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.
TBH, I don't really play that many games anymore. I just thought about gettin sli for a 4k monitor I almost bought but i'm still running at 1680 x 1050 xD
Yea, it's a FTW+ so it's already pretty fast.
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?
How loud is the pump as when I went completly passive with my PC for a while my H100i was the loudest component till I swapped it out for a D14.
In the pictures it's a Antec HCG 850 but in the description it says Corsair RM. What happened?
Any modern I5 shouldn't bottleneck even 4 way 1080.
+1 for the k'nex and good job on the painting
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.
Huh? Do you mean a power supply? If so, at what budget?
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.
What do you mean? We're trying to stop fires from starting not start them :P
Nothin' like casually gettin a D7200. Jealous of the build and the camera.
Only 1 apart from the CPU fan header.
I know, but there's isnt much you can do now.
The NEX are good though the G1 aren't the best but an improvement over the CX series.
That is the sexiest B series motherboard I've ever seen
For this build it shouldn't have any problems as it won't be drawing much power and it is Seasonic.
Those aren't the prices they paid. It's the price you could but it for right now if your retailer has it.
https://i.gyazo.com/cf29e81f1dab99b721d93006ec516cca.png I be lookin'.
Nowhere does it say $600. So next time. Think before you speak.
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.
No it was a genuine question of which you would prefer.
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.
You didn't answer my question.
"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.
