Im thinking of upgrading to the r9 370 when its released. you can get a 290 now for £150 ish
GR8 B8 M8 I R8 8/8
if this dosnt get used to make montage parodies I give up
it will obliterate the monitor if anything which is what im most worried about. If I pull any of the cables it might fall as well :(
Im not sure if they have it in the USA but it was off gumtree. I think its like craigslist but im not sure. Thanks
I wrote in my CPU description I used it because of the broadwells being lga 1150 when they come out. I will then get an i5 hopefully
thanks for your concern. The bar on the right is solid aluminium which is fixed to a wooden joist in the loft. This is the only bit that my dad did.
$1000 PC but you still use a $20 Nokia as your camera
easily best live band ever maybe except rammstein.
The energy of 9 crazy guys smashing up stuff with giant moshpits is brilliant
Loving the screensaver \m/
I'd be interested to see some benchmarks on this neat set up
Well the average TDP for a 280x is 250w under load.
If your not playing on above 1080p resolutions or 120/144hz. One 280x will be plenty.
If you did go for 2 you could do a quiet optimized build and underclock them and turn the fans down. You wont see a huge performance decrease but you might see it come under 750w.
In short 2x 280x at stock will probably need 800+
I put at the bottom im getting a used one. IMO its worth the risk if it works.
the case im using will be the Zalman R1, its sexy as hell http://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Components/Cases/Midi+Tower/Zalman+R1+Black+Mid+Tower+Case+with+Window+?productId=61985
You can also cut back on the motherboard but since its a newish LGA 1150 there will be great future support as apparently the next line from intel 'broadwell' will use 1150 sockets. Great if you want to upgrade to an i5 some time next year.
Also take a look into that processor. It smashes the 6300 on most games appart from crysis 3. Small tasks like web browsing will be quicker on an intel processor as well. plus not to mention the power draw and price. O'c the crap out of it and it will do great

Thats what im after but im getting the 280x used.
You can take out the SSD and its about £400
The 280x is probably better than the 760,
Crossfire 280xs would power through anything
maybe cut back on the CPU and upgrade to a 280x for the GPU and get an SSD.
The pentium G3258 anniversary edition is a mighty powerful dual core with excellent overclocking potential.
Take it up to 4.7ghz on the 212 and you've saved over $100
The 760 as a card is barely powerful enough to utilise the full 4gb VRAM and if it could it would only make a difference working on higher resolutions.
Change the 4gb 760 to a 2gb 770 or get the 3gb r9 280x either of those should suit your needs. As mentioned before there is no need for 1000w, 750w is more than enough.
With those savings you can get an SSD for $50/60 to put the editing works/games/OS you use most on.
Have you checked out the QX2710 korean monitors.
under £190 on ebay and they're overclockable.
Take a look they're great
cpu get a pentium g3258 or better known as the aniversary edition.
Pair this with a hyper 212 cooler and you can get it up to 4.7ghz easy.
Take a 270x-280x for your GPU or a 760 if you want to go the nvidia route and you can smash the xbox one for $500
If your not overclocking then you should be fine.
The 8350 with that mobo is built for overclocking though.
The performance you get will be well worth the £25 coolermaster 212
The case can be cut back on, Im not sure if you can but maybe you can get the Zalman r1 in america. very nice case for a really low price.
Have you considered used components?
CS GO, Is apparently more CPU intensive than GPU,
The intel processor a few people have suggested the "g3258" can be overclocked on a z97 board and coolermaster 212 to an amazing 4.7ghz stable.
1080p 144hz is quite a challange for even high end cards but on your budget a r9 280 would do a great job.
4gb ram to save money (CS Go dosnt need 8)
well your going to need to be more specific than that.
Just stick an ssd in there and put your Os on it.
It would be quite hard to make it fast anyway
1080p the ti should be fine.
You may struggle to reach the full 144hz on some games like crysis 3 on ultra but you should be future proof 1080p for a while
Lol wow, jealous prick can't afford a decent PC
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=quGsDSaGyFI what about something like that? just strap 2 fans ontop of the heatsink
A 6300 will clock up to 6350 speeds,
I also think the A10 is an APU and if you plan on having a separate video card the 7850k wont be all too useful
I would choose a 6350 over the 7850k but if you plan on buying one then just get a 6300
nice build but if I were you I would have gone with 2x4gb RAM and spent a little more to get a CPU cooler
Daym that case looks futuristic as hell with that fan controller.
Probably my favourite build on the whole site, this is such a sexy beast.
Isnt your CPU running a little hot? With a 105 and running stock clocks the temperature should be lower under load.
Another problem is do you think the 4790k will bottleneck 2x 295 x2s?
Nice deals on the Keyboard and mouse, lucky you
whats your opinion on the CPU cooler?
If i were you I would have gone with a cheaper CPU and PSU and got a 280x/280/760. For a decent silent build it would be better to have a really good GPU and underclock it so you can have your fans running as quietly as possible. Love the case as well
overkill in the sense that a 2gb 770 will be fine on a 1080p monitor on 95% of games
a 4gb 770 is really overkill for this system and an afteramarket cpu cooler will be pretty important.
holy sheet its my name
