Would it be any different to get something like the same RGB stuff with lower clock speed and just overclock to 3000+?

Get some cable combs, it would make the build look really clean and in my opinion way better. I do see the few on your gpu cables, and I really don't know, but I feel like they need some work. This might be able to help a bit. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=82JEMW7cae8

Exactly what I was thinking of going with. Are they supporting skylake boards? I'm just confused because it's a different generation of Intel CPUs and PcPP is showing h110 boards and z170's when I'm trying to find pricing.

Thanks! Yeah, the thing about skylake is that it's sorta been taken out by Kabylake due to prices, but I'm definitely not bashing on Skylake. I need to put a lot of upgrades into my system. (Certainly not my GPU lol) But overall, I wanna put some serious thought into things (especially case, I'm using a $30 one, it does it's job but it's not up there yet, and I'm very limited on space.) I'm surprised you would prioritize that 270x, as it's still a pretty good card, but I do see your logic in wanting to upgrade both, as in comparison to new GPUs, it's nowhere near what you could be using. If I could I would go back, but I'm still happy with the current computer. I'm really torn in this situation, seeing a lot of support for both sides. Really just waiting for the big hit to come in, absolutely swaying me one way or another. I'll definitely take this into mind, what you said. Thanks again!

So what would you recommend to me to really get into it but for as cheap as possible.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "To go Kabylake or stick with haswell?"

  • 41 months ago

See the thing is, I'm no hardcore pro gamer, and it would cost quite a bit to go to Kabylake, which is really the only thing holding me back from pulling the trigger. I'd love to go to that, but I'm not even sure if it's something worth even buying. If I were to stay on Haswell, or even go Skylake, what would you recommend?

I'm using it with an RX 480, so there's a ton of bottleneck. I get stuttering in games due to this and I'd like to do more things with it.

It has to do with the desk and stuff around it. The desk has drawers, which leaves me with just enough leg room. No room on the sides, and triple monitor takes up the entire desk

I need the 7" because of space on my desk. I'm using triple monitors, and I can't put the pc on the ground in my situation.

Thanks! FPS is definitely a bit lower than what you'd get with a gtx 950 or rx 460 due to the "CPU limit," but when I upgrade to an i5, which I plan to do on black friday this year, it'll be worth getting. I haven't been able to get overclocked much because of power issues, (the 430w isn't really worth getting, just go with 500w+) and I don't have a cpu cooler that I would trust a high oc with, planning on a hyper 212 and a case with more fans.

Another thing, with overwatch, there is no triple monitor support, so when setting it to 3 monitor resolutions, it will only appear on middle monitor, so it doesn't affect frames or anything if you're using single monitor, or at least it shouldn't, maybe a 5-10 fps difference max

Comment reply on LiamTheHuman's Completed Build: Effective AF Budget Build

Thanks! I had it overclocked to 4.1ghz, the motherboard was a bit weird for oc, but the 430w wasn't supplying enough power, since the rx 480 draws a ton. I get a constant 45-60 fps on overwatch, and when I go to an i5 I should have much more. The whole build's mainly something to get me by until black friday.

Heck, you could do 4K with this too. http://nvidia.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/3587/~/how-to-enable-dynamic-super-resolution-in-games. I personally use a Rx 480 with virtual super Resolution to run 2 1080 monitors and 1 900p monitor all at 1080 for triple monitor

It's certainly there, but not too bad. Just be sure to put an oc on the chip.

It's actually pretty quiet for a reference card. It does get a bit loud during games, but most people have headphones on anyways, and with them on, you can't hear the fan.

You can set a virtual resolution if you want to bench at 2k. Just a suggestion.

Very well, but I don't have too much of a bottleneck with triple monitors. I'd suggest a good overclock on the pentium if you plan to do so. Maybe 4.0-4.5

Maybe the EVGA 500w, I shouldn't ever really need more than that.

the thing is, the g3258 has over 600 higher passmark score, 3978 compared to the g3250, and I think I will be getting the i5 about 2-3 months from now.

I can't do skylake because I don't have ddr4 ram. And I literally stated in the post that I would eventually upgrade the cpu to an i5. Might use the psu though

The only thing about it all is that the power supply is stable for me as I use it in my current system, where it runs without issue, also being quiet.

I have no idea when rx 480 will be back, that was first choice. If it's back by the time I'm ordering parts, I definitely will.

If that is the case, would you mind adjusting the parts list to at least stay in the same range, and if you could, keep the gpu. The CPU is the part I'm upgrading first, and you could probably use a cheaper pentium. I'm only going to be playing csgo and some indie titles, and once I get the new cpu, I'm going to play stuff like bo3, ogrewatch (yes I'm sorry) and no man's sky. Oh hey, this is 100th comment.

I also ran the entire set of specs on the pc through cooler master's power supply calculator, saying I'd want about a 300w psu or higher, as it would reach about 247w on load, so that gives me quite a bit of headroom.

Are you talking about the case or psu? I can get both when I get home in a few hours.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Help please lol"

I don't have access to the psu model number, but it runs quiet and supplies power through all cables, 430w single rail. The case is a Raidmax Blade, that I have when I did a build 2 years ago, that has been sitting around. I'm eventually going to buy a modular power supply and an enthoo evolv

I forgot to mention this, but I already have a hdd and ssd. In the post, I did say I would upgrade my cpu eventually, which actually shouldn't be that long after I build the system. I plan to eventually pop in an i5 4460 or 4690k, just to ensure no bottleneck.

PSU and ram aren't on pcpp, but I've measured the case and PSU, its all compatible. I even have 200w of headroom with the psu, with all of the needed connectors
