There are a handful of Build Guide creators who I can think of deserve to be a staff or at least be allowed to post Build Guides. Overall in my opinion the update ruined some of the features in this that really attracted me here.
I tried 2 different debugging programs, and regardless. This site continues to only show staff made builds.... :P
True, true. Most of the benefits on my side are really preference more than performance, because PC's have so much more going for em then consoles like expandability, upgradeability, and more creativity and options when it comes to peripherals and such.
Personally I prefer PC's over consoles, but if I had to choose a $300 PC or a $300 Console I would have to choose the console mainly because of the features and speed, a Ps4 has an 8core CPU, and GPU that performs adequate for 1080p, 500GB HDD, bluray drive, bluetooth, etc. So what I would do is wait few more paychecks and get a $500 or $600 PC to start off. Anyways, great build! The title's hilarious! +1
Stick with a gtx 970 or a r9 390.
They are gonna be very little games you will be able to play on this build, even with your used parts.
Awesome parts! I especially like the case. +1
Personally the only thing I would change is the case with an rzbo1 becuase it has a drive bay, other then that its an awesome build!
Pretty much all the parts are except that the power supply is a little too expensive.
Oh noctua and their weird color schemes
Awesome build even though its not really color matching, +1.
Try using a much cheaper CPU cooler ($40) and putting the money towards better storage capacity and performance.
Example of cheaper price range better performance http://pcpartpicker.com/user/15Halos/saved/BCtPxr
Try spending less on peripherals and more on CPU/GPU. For a $1330 price range use an intel quad-core. For more help ask in forums.
This is a pretty nice build, for more help contact the forums.
The only thing I would do is save up money to buy a 120GB SSD, awesome build!
It does have adequate cable management, and I do like that it has a window for its cheap price range, so the case choice was decent.
Thats good. Having a fast boot drive and some application storage is good.
Yeah, it okay to start with HDD's, its just recommended that their speed is 7200RPM
I plan on buying another GPU for crossfire in the future. Thanks for the motherboard suggestion!
Get mad overclocks with that coffee mug, +1
I meant to say semi-modular.
I love the concept although i can't see myself spending so little..
we all did
Try asking on the forums for more help.
The only thing missing is an SSD (250GB at least) still great build though... +1
Awesome build! Every parts choice made in this is superb! +1!
Try a better PSU, 240GB SSD, and try spending a little bit more money on the GPU so you can get 4GB of VRAM.
If you plan on Game Development you should consider a SSD along with HDD with 7200RPM at least, 5900RPM isn't the best performance you can get. Also consider choosing a much cheaper motherboard unless you plan upgrading. For expand-ability reasons, try a micro atx build and a motherboard that supports at least 2 way SLI or Crossfire. Also try using a 2x16GB kit. As well as a Quad-Core CPU.
just a meme
But can it run Crysis??
I like the build so far, the only things I dislike is the color scheme and cheap case. 1. Color Scheme only matters when you have a window, and this case does. There's a mix of baige, brown, blue, black and red. 2. Case: I would prefer a better case at least with better cable management. Other then those I see no other problem with the Parts you've chosen, +1!
happy to help!
for a build like this I would recommend at least a 120GB SSD
Do you have an SSD?
Oh there isn't? So getting a 1000W or 850W for a 400W build isn't overpowered? What I'm obviously saying is that you don't have to get a very high wattage PSU when a lower wattage PSU with the same efficiency for lower price. When u say a PSU is bad, you could mean all sorts of things like, crappy value or overpriced, I prefer to be specific. For example, buying a 1000W Corsair CSM for a 450W build, all you'll say is "bad PSU" I'll say, "Try a 550W CSM, which will have the same the efficiency and reliability, within recommended wattage, for a lower price, also try posting in the forum for help."
Try posting in the forum for help. You can get more responses that way.
Try getting a much cheaper motherboard and put that money towards better mass storage and ram. As well amping down the power supply unless you plan on sli or crossfire in the future, if so get a power supply with +80 gold at least.
Your PSU is overpowered, try a 430W.
If you want a 700W thats ok, although it will be rather expensive, you will have better upgradability
do you mean spartan 1337?
I was happy to help.
His motherboard he originally chose was a MATX, if he stuck with his current case, he would have massive space that could mostly only accommodate storage drives with small motherboard form-factor. By using a more smaller case, the money that went to the expensive case could go to more important areas such as performance, while still maintaining optimal features, etc.
Try this, It has the case you wanted with color scheme, (with window :3). http://pcpartpicker.com/p/vwzy6h and you should be able to get an exceptional overclock.
get a slightly stronger CPU, a dual-16GB kit so you have expandability, cheaper power supply around $40-$60. like a CX.
