Squeeze the mobo down w/380:
Probably would want to throw a couple of extra 120mm fans in this one.
Cheaper option w/ R9 390, or swap back to 970...
I like your build, and your tenacity! I just don't personally agree with Haswell right now. Should of stopped there. Have a nice day!
I know these things because I didn't just start programming yesterday. Obviously, my ten year old can teach you MANY things. She can color her hat whatever color she wants, and no expert would discredit it.
None of that would qualify as experience in the real world, so I don't recommend putting it on your resume. If you think your "experience" qualifies you as an expert, good luck in life. "I once fixed a driver issue" well, I guess you'll be wanting a participation ribbon, then?
"Want to know why? Cause AMD"- That's cute, thanks for clearing that up for me.
Yes 10% Integer and 15% floating point computational power increase is "literally next to no difference" SMH, you must work for AMD with that logic.
I get it, you're right, I'm wrong, and you're right even when you're wrong.
Nice build though, Nate. I'd love to stay and chat, but I have to get back to work. Those 386's aren't going to drop themselves into their sockets...
So you recommend not only a 2GB 380, but in an ITX form factor? Good luck with that.
My build right above is skylake i3.
No the i3 won't "bottleneck" the 380. But that is a very poor choice of 380. $10 more will net you a 4GB model and one that won't throttle itself constantly.
Check out a couple of my $500 builds here: http://pcpartpicker.com/user/tangoXomega/saved/#view=qVYv6h You will find more for your money. A couple don't have wifi, but can be added for $30ish.
There's a skylake i3/gtx 950 combo, 860k/380 combo, 860k/gtx 950 itx combo, and fx 8320/750ti combo
K... Who tested that?
Black= 5 Year warranty, likely last 20 years.
Seagate= 2 year warranty, likely last 20 months.
The black isn't about speed. Endurance, shock resistance, odd placement. It has much more value than the Seagate just on piece of mind alone. It is the PRO choice for a reason. Important DATA is far more valuable than saving a few dollars.
Good choice! There are definitely good reasons to still go with Haswell. I should have clarified that this was a response to the $800 feature build. The 4790k and even the 4460 are great CPUs! The 6700K definitely is a costlier system right now. Around at least a $100 or more depending on what a person is looking for, so I understand the Haswell i7. A 4790k and 960/380 combo should be about the same as an i5 and 970/390 combo for people needing to prioritize multitasking or editing over gaming.
The E3-12xx V3 Xeons are still excellent performers too for a lower budget friendly multitask rig, and can be built at the same cost as a new locked down i5 build. It's just that Haswell i5 vs Skylake i5 costs about the same unless going with lower end motherboards. So there isn't much reason to go with Haswell on that level in my opinion. If a person had no intention to upgrade, and was on a make or break budget I would recommend Haswell i5 over Skylake i3.
I personally like the idea of only getting a 250ish+ GB SSD at the beginning of a build so a person can focus that money towards a better power supply or nicer case instead of an added mass storage drive. The HDD can always be tossed in later, and really aren't expensive in the bigger picture.
Nice! Dang near the same as mine, but my PSU shot through the roof unfortunately in price. +2 On 2 980Ti's, haha!
Seriously, You can fit an i5-6500, H170 mobo, and DDR4 at this price point. You don't even have to stick with the i5-6400.
I don't get it either.
You could have gone Skylake at this price.
So many submissions, hard to get any love... A lot of good builds going around though!
Dang I just posted a similar twin 980Ti build earlier.
Mine's not the same as everyone else, it has two 980Ti's in it.
Thanks guys, This build couldn't have been done without my normally way overpriced local shop. Honestly, I would have bought their whole inventory if it weren't for the fact you were limited to buy only one of each item at sale price. I honestly thought Newegg was going to be my go to for 90% of the parts Haha. Parts were only bench tested to make certain of no doa's since my daughter probably would be disappointed if something stopped her first build from going smooth. She doesn't care about things like framerates or seeing your reflection on a water droplet a mile away in skyrim, so these parts definitely will accomplish the mission I think. Will post build picks after her bday. I'm totally stoked about both system builds I acquired over the holiday season. I wish the same to future builds for everyone!
To clarify about the Rosewill PSU It was $55 and a $25 rebate, so only $30 of a gamble for what should otherwise be solid specs. We'll see how it turns out. My system at max requires about 600w so hopefully the gold rating is accurate and it's capable of it's 87-92% consistent
Yeah, I wasn't terribly excited about the rosewill psu history reports, but I figured for the $55 I spent on it with a $25 mail in rebate and it being 80+GOLD It was worth the risk. But yeah you guys are right, Most of the deals were smoking. I didn't realize ddr3 had gone up so much from a little over a year ago so it didn't seem that great a deal to me, but when comparing it to prior and today's prices of $150ish it was for sure. Another bonus find was a logitech driving force gt pc/ps3 steering wheel that I found practically gathering dust with gran turismo 5 package for $17 at kmart! Don't really care about the game but that's a bargain for the wheel!
