As PanXter said. The site features a Compatibility filter.
I'd recommend the GTX 970 or the AMD 290X instead of the 770. They are the exact same price but just... better.
Look great m8. You might wan't to consider a SSD.
Its literally INSANITY the kind of Mobo he chose. A 40 buck Mobo would have been plenty for the specs hes gotten.
Hazard and Lord both have exceptional builds. It all boils down to whether you need those 2 extra cores.
Lord's is probably a far-far greater gaming build.
Well if thats the card you wanted to add it would both: Be far over his budget, and require far much more wattage. Ideally OP would go with a AMD 860k or FX 6300 and a 270 or r9 280.
Oh wow. Thats an decent amount of data.
Do you have a NAS server, bunch of HDDs or just using the cloud?
Console Killer? You must be humble. Thats essentially a r9 280 in a 400 dollar build. Thats insanity. Console Melter or the Console Shredder would be appropriate.
I'd think about incorporating a nicer Case. :P Theres some very nice ITX cases.
And I agree; ditch the water cooling unit. You don't need it.
Finally, HDD space if often over looked but I can imagine you running out of 256GBs within a year. Keep that in mind with this build, you'll probably be wanting to run a 1TB drive with it when you eventually run out.
This is defiantly one of the greater builds on here. I'd put the 20 left over into a better motherboard (Assuming that you live next to a micro center).
Over-budget and I don't see the appeal of a windows trial version.
Yea I honestly don't know what Victor was thinking.
For a 550 rendering rig I'd go with a 8320 for the sheer amount of cores and for a gaming rig It would have to be the 860K and r9 280 (Non X).
Thats simply the worst GPU and CPU combo I've seen. Horrendous for a gaming build.
A AMD 7850K would literally compete with it and save 200 dollars.
Its the equivalent of a r7 250. So not the greatest but you can check out information about the r7 250.
Dont make the conversion if you strictly plan to play games on wine.
Newer games can suffer heavily whine on wine and its not full proof.
Check out what games are available today on the Steam for linux platform and try to refrain for using wine.
So if you're looking to play BF4 and CoD: AW I'd stay away for now.
Yep. Its simply a Locked i7 without integrated graphics. It will be gud.
GPU choice might be questionable for CAD work.
I think the i5 was a good fit but more cores/hyperthreading might have been more useful than the horsepower from a Over clock.
Dis. Although he should probably go with a cheaper MOBO to cut on the cost.
A AMD 860K build would work as well. http://pcpartpicker.com/p/MLD3Bm
And heat on the APUs isn't much of an issue. They are pretty decent at it. Going with intel has other things going for it. Intel generally has better support within the linux community.
Anti-Matter destroys itself when it comes into contact with matter.
This is a GAMMMMMINNNNNG build. Unless the only game he plays 24/7 is minecraft then a build should always carry a GPU preference.
Your first build was without a doubt unbalanced. Its not even justifiable within the realms of what OP wanted.
A Intel Anniversary/i3 or the AMD 860K would have let him feature a decent video card capable of playing the games he wanted.
Its a weird choice. He might as well go for just one stronger card. Maybe the 750 TI as crossfired 7770s are comparable to the 750 non TI.
Its def in the high end sect but how he classifies it doesn't matter. It doesn't take away anything from the quality of this Post IMHO.
Yea I understand that. But for streaming he either want's to rely on the GPU or the CPU.
It might be his BEST option to go with the r9 270 but completely rely on the CPU to stream. Since the CPU is throttled he'll easily be able to dedicate 4 cores to stream.
Not entirely. I mean objectively its better but I don't think it accomplishes all your main goals.
You still want a far more powerful CPU. I think the SSD can be a future upgrade. Boot times are nice but if you're on a budget it might not be necessary.
Also the is purely esthetics but I can see how you'd want to spend 100 on the case in this budget.
Sample AMD build
Uh lol his part list mentions a 760.
AMD has raptr but I wouldn't trust it. At this point I'm just worried KSP might not be able to run well on the 760K and the GPU won't really do much to help.
I guess he can downgrade to the 750ti, downgrade PSU, downgrade RAM and take off the SSD so that he can get a faster INTEL or AM3+ AMD chip. Maybe get a cheap capture card off of Ebay or something. Not sure how the streaming bit would work.
You didn't upgrade the CPU. Thats a MUCH worse cpu mate. Price =/= Performance.
A true upgrade would be to the FX 6300 (need a different mobo) or FX 8320.
Your only real options lie outside of the FM2 line of motherboards if your looking to upgrade
The 760k/860k are fine CPUs but My experience with KSP is limited and something suggests you need more CPU power.
If you do Shadowplay you might be able to manage with the 760K.
DISCLAIMER: I do not know of anyone who has tried this.
EDIT: Oh wow. uh nvm your playing KSP. If the Physics are truly intensive as I've heard. Then you might want to downgrade the 760 and RAM and get a FX 8320 CPU.
Make it so that KSP takes 4 cores and your encoder another 4.
Its unnecessary for a beastly OC on the Pentium but if he doesn't really care much about the budget then he can get a very decent z97 MOBO for just 20 more.
Or neither and go for the 1TB Caviar Blue.
The Black is more reliable than the Seagate but All hard drives are pretty unreliable so the trade off is a bit awkward.
If you need a lot of storage sea gate. But if for some reason you want to feel 15% safer then get the black.
On tight budget its def the 860K
Pretty much. But haswell supposedly has much better heat tolerance.
They Seem normal. Gotta remember that AMD likes to start fires. :p Although I'm not an Overclocking Enthusiast so don't take my word for it.
Ah, well that makes sense.
But yes, OutOfTheBlue, if you plan to stretch your budget to 600-700 the builds potential is phenomenal.
I disagree with the APU choice. For fiddy more (And hes willing to stretch his budget to 700). You can go with the 860K and a far better GPU.
It looks fine. But theres honestly 0 reason to buy a prebuilt than just building the rig itself.
Moar pics sir. The part selection looks juicy.
Yea ditto about the memory being from 2 different batchs. Would not trust.
He could need the memory for multimedia and rendering, the 8320 is a very capable Rendering CPU.
With both an AMD card and AMD cpu I think it would function better as a toaster or a cook oven.
nice build m9. Aside from the GPU: gorgeous part selection!
PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant
Maybe dis. The Mobo isn't the greatest and the PSU is barely adequate for the job.
Here comes the Pentium G3258 Fanboys. I can hear them already.
Anything but the Intel Celeron!
All the 970 cards are essentially the same thing. You'll run BF4 at ultra at about 60 fps MIN and 77 Average.
You'll be fine. Just don't put many documents or none at all on it.
Just the OS and a few games until you get the 1TB WD drive.
Yep that's the card you wan't to go for. ACX 2.0 is a great cooler from what I've heard.
Yes. Unless the motherboard carries on board graphics. Most do not. Especially FM2 Boards or Modern Intel Boards.
If you wan't to use the 860K w/o a dedicated card then go for the A10 6800 or the A10 7850K. The a10 and 860K are the same chip but the a10 7850K is a APU and the 860K had its graphics disabled.
I read that as (D:)
Gl m9 :D Mewwy xmas
Well tomorrow/today is Christmas. So prices are expected to fall pretty soon. I'm not sure about the exact period you'd buy but prices are about to fall for clearance.
If you truly need to be portable all the time the the ITX build might be necessary. There also a few good ITX (But expensive) cases with Stable handles that the Tek covered a bit back.
But if you don't NEED the portability of itx then matx would just be easier down the line for you to manage.
All builds so far look fine for your usage. Although I'm still worried about video card space on the ITX after watching Hardware Canuck's vid on it.
Looks great. Although the MOBO might be on the cheap side.
The 1X8GB could be quite slow, but I'm not sure if you'd care.
Equally. Al tough dependent on the case you might not be able to fit in big air coolers and/or big video cards.
Another thing to consider is the fact that some mITX cases ((cought)) Prodigy are bigger than some Micro ATX.
Well yes but historically green has been used as a complementary color to purple. Just like Blue and orange have a frequent usage.
