I'm surprised that a 13 year old CPU is still alive. I'm impressed.
Don't smoke kids. It'll kill you, and more importantly your computer.
Good to hear that the monitor works great for you (and for even cheaper than it is now). I think I going to go against getting the monitor though. I mostly don't have enough games that could benefit from it to justify me spending $600. Also it doesn't seem worth dropping $600 on something that I won't even be able to see. If I do decide that I wanted 144hz, I'll settle for one of the free-sync IPS monitors that are much cheaper (seeing how I won't even be benefiting from g-sync anyway). Thanks a bunch!
Thanks for the input. I think the only fast paced shooter I have is DOOM and I recently went through my game library, and I don't think I have a lot of games that can even go past 60 fps. I think I'm going to back away from these monitors and be happy with what I got.
Now grandma can play solitaire, no problem! (That's what my grandma used to do)
Also what city is that? It looks beautiful from your apartment/studio/where ever you took the pictures from.
They really did perform well
Whoops, your right
Pretty damn impressive dude!
I have to ask, how'd you get a gtx 1080 ti at that price?
Also what games are you planning on playing at 4K?
War 2: The War to End all Wars............ Again!
Next PC you build you should call it War 2: War Does Change
I remember looking at the 4670K for my first PC build and went with the 4790K instead. Good times.
Love this PC though.
Looks great! I can hear my mom telling me to get off the internet, so that she can use the phone, just by looking at it.
Always love me some sleeper PCs. Just like actual sleep; I can't get enough of them.
Probably because I never heard of them before. I am not denying them, I'm just admitting that I have not heard of this up till this point.
Well, what are you wanting to do with it? I mean in terms of gaming it's great and I think that's a reasonable price despite it not being an IPS panel.
I prefer Air cooled over liquid cool. It's quieter, cheaper (usually), there is less things that can go wrong (such as an AIO leaking), and they will easily out live your CPU. Unless you're wanting to try overclocking, in which case do go with liquid cooling.
Right now there are RX 560 4GB for under $200 US and the GTX 1050 ti can cost between $225 and $250 US. If you are on a budget go with the RX 560. However, there is a noticeable difference in performance between the two with the GTX 1050 ti on top.
If your just looking for better performance; go with the gtx 1050 ti
If you are hurting for cash and just want to get by; go with the RX 560.
My personal opinion; it doesn't hurt to stretch out an extra $50 for a better gpu (usually) so go with the gtx 1050 ti.
If money is really an issue (like you can spend an extra $100) go with a gtx 1060 6gb. I used to have one (sold it) and I think I was able to play GTA 5 on high settings at 60 fps.
Well apparently we've got a bit of a wait on our hands. GDDR6 is going to be used for the 1100-series and it won't start mass production for about three more months and then we might need to wait a bit longer for the GPUs to be design and manufactured. I'd say we could get them in about 4 to 6 months. I'm happy with my gtx 1070 (I'm usually too busy with college to play any games and even the games I'm currently playing are pretty dated), but for people who have been waiting for either new graphics cards to become available or hopefully for MSRP, are going to have to wait a bit longer.
There could be a chance that they are holding off for now because they might be planning on using GDDR6 VRAM rather than GDDR5 or GDDR5X. Apparently GDDR6 is said to be put in mass production in three months.
Oh crap! I actually forgot about that
I guess makes since. Are they going to be MSP though or will they bump up the prices?
I don't have any experience or knowledge of editing at all. Buy if what fellway says is true; you can edit with a 1050 ti, it's just going to take a long time.
It can work in 4K for watching videos and regular tasks. Would be very limited in terms of gaming and extremely limited in terms of content creation.
Bummer. Maybe they're waiting to see what'll happen. There is apparently a lot of talk about a drop in GPU demand in May, but I am not sure.
Don't they still have two more days at GTC?
There is rumors going on that gpu prices will drop in may after some cryptomining hardware is released, lowering the demand. I'd say wait till then, but if you are really eager a gtx 1080 ti and have the funds, go for it. It is just a rumor.
I hate it when that happens. I just wanted a new headset and resulted in buying new keyboard, mouse, monitor, GPU and RGB fans.
Love this build BTW
Wait, what are we stress testing? The PC or .......
Welp, I'll be sure to look out for a pub called "Whale and Ale" if I ever visit Canada.
If it works, I like it. If it can get the job done for a good price, I love it.
Right now, I definitely love it.
I'd drink there. Where is it?
That'd make an interesting bar name
If it works and doesn't explode, it's a good power supply in my book.
Probably the best computer in existence is one that you get for free AND works.
That sounds good. Lately its felt as though gaming in general is not as fun and exciting as it used too (at least for me), but that's normal when you're busy.
Good luck on building a custom loop in your system. There's a whole other community in that than just PC building and although I don't know jack about overclocking (nor do I even have anything to benefit from it at the moment) designing and building a custom loop looks really fun.
Based on the title, I was expecting to see a really cheap PSU in the build. Instead you chose a PSU that's as rock solid as this PC. Very nice! Much approve. (Hopefully there's still no fire in the future)
I'm more of a quality over quantity (higher settings over fps) kind of guy anyway. I guess so long as I'm actually enjoying the game, neither really matter. I'd rather play a game I love on a pentium laptop (but still playable) than play a game that I don't like on a PC that costs as much as my tuition.
Man, I'd love to have a monitor like that. IPS, G-SYNC, ultra-wide, 120 Hz refresh rate, and its 1440!
I just wish I could afford it, or had a powerful enough GPU (I don't think my gtx 1070 would cut it for AAA titles),
I also do not have enough desk space
I also don't even know how many of my games could be played on such a monitor.
Screw it, I don't want it anymore. (I do though)
Amazing build! I do have a few questions though:
1) About how loud does that thing get?
2) Does your build have any dust filters or a way to combat dust build up?
3) What do you hope to use this beast of a computer for? (Just curious. Usually builds like this is for stuff like high quality video rendering or creativity)
4) How good does **** look :D (Sorry)
Damn man, though luck. Especially now that building a PC is more expensive than ever these days.
PC so cool that you can build a snowman in it. Great job!
I wish there were more 'sleeper' PC builds on this site. I think they're the coolest
After seeing so many PC builds named "Blue," I couldn't help but hope that one day someone would go full eiffel 65.
I salute you and your build
I don't exactly know why, but I enjoying looking at the cheaper builds over the expensive ones any day.
I figured that. I thought they were really fun back then.
I managed to play Fallout New Vegas on my old laptop from 2013 with a Pentium processor. So maybe it won't be too bad.
I have not seen a mouse like that for a long time.
Very rarely do you see any working PCs for under $300 bucks. Nice job!
I just hope the client doesn't hope to game on it. Unless its a game that came out before 2009, they might be out of luck.
Knowing how much clutter can pile up from packaging, its really easy to misplace something (especially if its something as small as a cable comb). Good luck finding that. Might be easier to find the Holy Grail.
Did you make those yourself, or did you buy them? Cause those things are giving me ideas.
