Awesome! I hope that discussion also involved plans for the app. That's the number one on my list right now. Still though, good to hear my suggestions are being considered if topics like this hadn't already been discussed prior to my post.
I went down an average of 5 fps just thinking about it.
Ya know, I don't ask for very much. All I want is to get high-ultra settings at 1080p but no, Ig I can't have that. Maybe next time though.
I'm looking forward to losing another one of these so much. Now if any staff member feels pity for me that I never win any of these and I'm still using an Athlon X4 760K PM me and hook me up with some stuff. I might even upload a completed build if you ask nicely ;).
yeah I wasn't sure which one to go to considering this potentially would extend beyond the CPU and was more of a parts list but I'll do that.
lol better hurry before someone gets really disappointed with their purchase.
It doesn't, the $900 one comes with an i7 and a GTX 950M, which is certainly not a 1070. The 1070 one is still a good price at 1749. Certainly competitive pricing but you will not see a 1070 in a laptop at $900 until people throw up at the thought of someone still playing at a laughable 1440p or even worse, 4K. Once 4K becomes the new 1080p, then the 1070 will be in a $900 laptop.
Yeah I edited my other post about just that, it did seem like something was up. I'd say go with what GeoDashZorra posted because it's in your price range and will give you very good performance even though it is way too expensive for what it is. Seriously an Xbox one must be like 400-500$ in NZDs. Anyway, go with the other guy's list, it's still a very high end computer and will give great 1440p performance and, if you ever wanted to, will still give 4K fps over 30 if you can tolerate sub 40-50 frames.
PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant
For $2000 look at what you could get. That other guy had some weird parts in his list and this is just all around way better.
Edit: GeoDashZorra 's thoughts were correct, his parts list just didn't make any sense for $2000. The perofrmance you'd get form his is equal to a $1000-$1200 build.
Edit 2: Didn't even notice your situation here, the price markups are because of your location. Oops, Idk if you can, but really try your best to maybe have a family member or friend or something buy the parts for you in the US, and have them shipped to you because the performance you get where you are for $2000 is horrible.
Two Titan XPs is so drastically different in price from two 1080s that anyone looking in the ~$2400 price point isn't even considering the 1080 and already has at least 1 Titan XP. If I were to make a build in the $4000ish price point I would certainly do dual Titan XPs let alone a $6100 price point. At $6100 I would expect two Titans with a full liquid loop. If that meant dropping down to the 6900K than fine at least I know my games won't be affected literally at all. I still do stand to my original point though that two Titans would've made a lot more sense at this price point.
So it comes down to the person. Super bragging rights with guaranteed compatibility and amazing performance (Titan) or ultimate performance with almost guaranteed compatibility and really good bragging rights (1080s)
Ik I was kidding. The 1080s will outperform a single Titan Xp. You're laying for bragging rights with the Titan.
Ew, GTX 1080s. That's so May. All the enthusiasts have Titan XPs these days.
Well I tried to find a holodeck game but I couldn't so I went with the next best thing.
Star Trek holodeck game coming to the vive later this year. https://www.engadget.com/2016/06/12/ubisoft-star-trek-vr-game/
I think I should speak on behalf of a lot of people, and you should see this to, that a lot of us go on this site a lot less now. Build guides were got me hooked on this site and now that they're gone I don't feel the need to come on here. I used to come on, comment on a ton of build guides, and legitimately help people. Now I come on and the site seems a lot more dead. The removal of build guides, from what I've seen, seemed to hurt user traffic and I feel that instead of all the ideas of indexing guides and these complex ideas, just remove guides you see that are trolls. There's no need to put a ton of effort into it, just remove them when you see them. That's all I have to say on this matter, and I'll continue to check hoping one day I see a community guide back on the site, but until then, I'm disappointed one of my favorite things to do was removed.
Please dear god get a better wireless network adapter!!! Other than that pegotico hit the nail on the head with his suggestions. Just please get something that's at least half descent. You will literally cry when you try to connect to any server of any game with that. It really isn't something to skimp out on.
I have a few gripes with this build. Two 960s is not a good option. Go with a high end 970 or a 980 if you can spare it because Star Citizen needs a lot of horses to get going without breaking a sweat. Also, RAM, way too much. 16GB max for a gaming rig if you're strictly gaming and not doing anything that really needs it. For a gaming rig, I usually won't recommend a sound card unless you're an audiophile in which case I'm sure you know what you're doing so go for it. Looking over the rest it seems good other than that but if you do decide to go for a single GPU (which is always more stable than two and will have less stuttering in every case) than get a lower wattage power supply for less. You can always save a few pennies here and there when possible and it won't make a difference. I hope you know how to overclock because otherwise you're wasting your time and money with the 6700K. Get a 6700 unless you want to try overclocking (which I will always recommend). Looks good though, I'm hoping to upgrade to my star citizen rig which is a bit beefier, if you want to check it out here it is. http://pcpartpicker.com/p/wLHgTW
Good build for the most part although I have a few suggestions. Firstly, that monitor is not suited at all for gaming or this build in general, my suggestion is get at least a 5ms response time monitor or better and make it a little bigger. There are some great options for the $100-$110 range and I'm happy to help pick one that suits you if you need it. Another thing is that the PSU you're using is way too overkill. I know people like to "future proof" but since you're on DDR3 with a 4th gen processor I seriously recommend a cheaper PSU. If you want it go for 16GB of RAM but it really isn't necessary if you're playing games it'll just give you a slight speed boost when multitasking. Other than that solid build.
So then pick people who have contributed to the community a lot and have build guides on their account that are actually good. Go through the people complaining about the change, check over their account, and allow them to make build guides. You don't have to make a lot of people able to post but some that you feel are good at making really well put together system builds. I spend a solid 2 and a half to 3 and a half hours on this site every single day editing systems, checking prices, critiquing build guides, and making my own and I enjoy it. I'd like to continue doing that every day so the staff could even write a forum post saying if you want to be considered to be allowed to post than leave a comment with an attached sample build guide or something. It doesn't have to get out of hand with hundreds upon hundreds of people because you can take your time this way. Once you've sorted through everyone after an allotted amount of time you pick say, 10-20 people to be allowed to post build guides and the rest can help critique or make their own forum section for build guides, but have the exceptional people posted on the main build guides section. Then, how about every month 5-10 people are chosen to have their build guides featured for being exceptionally well made. If you did it this way, I think it would turn out really well in the end with beginner-novice builders having a plethora of builds to choose from with well made, and titled, guides on why every part could be well suited for the potential buyer.
I feel I should point out, and I should have said this in my last post but, even the staff build aren't perfect and someone who doesn't know what they're doing may get stuck with a less than perfect build for them. So, I think there should be better titles to the builds because, for instance, and thought's not the only one, the enthusiast build from thoughta could use a bit of work. The build is very good but I fit a 5820K, a 980 and a great motherboard into a $1200-1300 build but for $1500 you don't even get overlooking. I'm not trying to belittle thought's build because it's still really good but not exactly enthusiast. So I think if the site won't index specific people to post than you should at least categorize a bit more and clean up the titles of your concern is beginner-novice builders.
This is really disappointing because I for one loved posting a build guide and having people respond to them. Not having that takes a lot of the fun out of the site and, to be honest, this site feels less community oriented and more like a site to go on when you're building a PC and then you go and that's that. This is a sad time for the site and there must be something the staff here can do to let high quality builders, IMO, such as myself post their guides for the community to see in an easy to access way. I for one will not be digging through forum topics to find a build guide to comment on. The build guides section was easy to access, gave quick system specs highlighting the important parts, gave an overall price, and showed me pictures of some parts. all thing the forum can't do or isn't overly good at doing. I hope this issue is resolved with a better solution than "let's remove it" and when that day comes I will continue to make high quality guides for the more beginner-novice PC building market.
I read this comment and got so excited but then I saw "36 months ago" and got really disappointed. I would've loved the app, currently I have the site pinned to my homescreen but being able to have an offline view of my parts and some other offline features would be really awesome.
thanks for the reply, at least now I know it's not just me.
Title is wrong, this is not a skylake build. On another note for $700 you should be getting a better graphics card. I suggest the EVGA GTX 960 4GB SSC with ACX 2.0+. It's overclocked from the factory, includes a backplate, and is an overall solid 1080p performer. If I were you, I'd make the CPU a 4590 to save some money for the graphics card and wait for a sale. You should be spending roughly a third of your budget on the graphics card for a gaming build not the processor.
I would go with the Nepton, it's much quieter and has a faster fan but does have quite a bit lower air flow (94 CFM on the H110 vs 76 on the Nepton). So it really depends on what you want
Saw your comment, the hyper 212 EVO is a great cooler for mild overclocks but if you want to get a bit more serious about your overclocks get an H100i or an H110.
It would, I have another thread to see if anyone else knows some good parts for that type of project so if you do I'm looking for recommendations on basically every part, but I'll spend the hours doing research if necessary.
I read through all of these and no one mentioned mineral oil cooled PCs. I'm building one in the coming months I'm just waiting for Pascal to go consumer level to 980 Ti prices take a nose dive. Expect to see the completed mineral oil PC by mid summer. If enough people want it, I'll do a build guide since Linus' build log is kinda outdated.
Idk if you really need the external storage, but why not get rid of the external 2TB drive and get a $65 Seagate barracuda instead. It's nothing big, but it'll just clean up the build a bit and you can get a 500GB-1TB external drive for around the same price as the single 2TB drive. Otherwise great build.
Idk why alienware advertises this as an extreme gaming PC or something along those lines, three way sli actaully degrades gaming performance. If you have this kind of money, people should stick to two way sli max. Relating to this build though nice job on trying to show people that companies are companies and need to pay the bills.
Ask yourself if you really need 64GB of RAM. The benfits of more than 32GB of RAM are extremely marginal and should only be considered if you really just don't care about cost and want to spend money on the best of the best. Also, do you need a $500 motherboard, there are plenty of others for ~$300 less that would provide ample features for mostly anyone's needs, but if you really re going to use all of those extra bonuses that a $500 motherboard will give, by all means go for it. However, waiting for pascal was a great decision and everything else in this build is really well chosen. Just consider those points when looking at motherboards and RAM. Nice job though.
I have never seen a computer priced at ~$1000 that didn't cut a ton of corners to get there. The only change I'd make here is instead of the SSD get a 2TB WD Black because even though you lose the speed, 512GB of storage just isn't enough for most people these days. Really nice job getting the price as low as possible without making too many compromises though.
That could be an option but probably won't look as good.
I know I actually asked them to add it but they don't add individual manufacturer stores. Still weird that amazon had the price at double the card's worth.
Same card you have now for half the price. http://galaxstore.net/GALAX-NVIDIA-GeForce-GTX-970-HOF-4GB_p_37.html
I still don't know why that card was so much
This PC will not be getting playable frame rates on basically any AAA game. Seriously wait longer until you have like $350-$400 to buy a console killer instead.
I don't know why but that GALAX GTX 970 HOF is wayyyyy to expensive, might as well get a white 980 Ti for $811
I agree with Kavster, there's no way you're playing 4k at reasonable frame ratese o this thing. 1080p ultra and 1440p medium/high but not 4k. Upgrade to a 390X if you want to stick with AMD if you want playable 4k.
Yeah I'll definitely check out your build. It would be great if you find someone who's build might benefit from mine, tell them to check out my build. It would be much appreciated.
Impressive build but the storage seems really under appreciated for the quality of this pc. I feel like if you aren't going to have an ssd, at least have a WD Black or equivalent so that every piece of this build is equal in potential. If you want you can check out my build to get some ideas for storage but other than that nice build, definitely a +1.
I'll check it out now, I feel the name of this pc deserves infinite +1s
Ok it seems like most everyone thinks blue and white so far. I have the part list done if anyone is interested but I think it'll look really good. Red and black is basiclaly the goto color scheme for any gaming pc and personally, I like the "cold" feel of white and blue because I'm going to have a lot of overclocked components so the rig will have some serious cooling.
I know they are on the site sorry for he confusion I meant it'd be great if there were prices available for them.
Of course I could check it manually but it's so much easier to be able to check prices quickly and simply and isn't easy what pcpartpicker was made for?
Thanks for the info and that's what I thought to, it seems like that line is going to get really annoying unless you're someone who does a lot of productivity.
Well then alright, I'll look over the build because when I made your build with those two monitors it came to about $1200 which is more then I'd expected so thank you for all your help today.
