sure. that's what I meant. thanks for clarifying :)
A locked 4590 is $160, cheaper than the one listed. Do you not have a Microcenter nearby?
Make sure that the GPUs' heat output is kept away and out of the case as quickly as possible to keep the MB cool. They will fry it if left unchecked because they are open-fan style coolers, which put the hot air into the rest of the system. Multiple case fans are a great idea. Also, check out HWMonitor and CPU/GPU-Z for temp readouts.
They must've dropped that then. I had my streak of bad luck about a year ago.
Bruh chill. This is an online PC build site, I'm not dissing your mom or anything. So your build is better, alright. Static you can choose whatever. It's your call
So salty. Look, it was a hyperbole when I said no storage. 240GB is not going to hold a steam library, an OS, and everything else. You need a terabyte or so in there somewhere. Also, I noticed that the 9590 has a CPU cooler. Lovely, but it still goes toe to toe with an i5 that has a lot less heat output and plenty of room for OC. Also, the submitter wanted a sound system ;)
Why not an i5-4590?
No storage, no CPU cooler (the 9590 doesnt come with one). This is terribly unbalanced. Also the case sucks. I have it, it is absolute garbage.
Lifetime. But still, it's a hassle.
Do NOT buy XFX 280xs, I have gone through 3 DOAs IN A ROW. They have way too high of an overclock and are terribly unstable. Any low-clock 280x is fine, though.

I just realized that the EVGA PSU included above is a B2, not a Supernova. So actually that build is better than mine XP
I think the 2 GTX 570s will suit your son's gaming needs as none pf the games mentioned are GPU intensive. Everything looks good!
This could run high/ultra at 1080p :)
I dont like the 280x because of unstable overclocks and terrible QC from distributers. I would recommend a GTX 770 but that's just me.
Better than CX or Supernova, so yeah.
Get a reference design or underclock if you want a 280x. They are motorious for having unstable clock speeds (since they are just a rebranded 7970) and can have serious artifacting problems. I went through 3 in a row and they all were defective on arrival
I'm confused. One, you don't have a build for me to make an opinion on, and two, any computer that costs $15000 is going to be able to do anything at any resolution.
More storage (WD Blue)
Better PSU (Corsair RM 750)
Dont get a DVD writer just for OS, you can download it as an ISO file onto a USB stick and boot from that.
They are all compatible but there is barely any storage. You'll want to throw in a 1TB WD Blue hard drive to be safe.
The PSU is not necessarily good for, well, powering stuff. It will work, but it might not, if you know what I mean. Take a look at EVGA G2, B2, Seasonic, or XFX PSUs.
The PSU could not support that, and neither could the mobo.
But I like the concept.
Will destroy anything.
Its 12v rail has poor consistency in voltage regulation, so you may get sharp fluxuations in voltage which can damage components.
The PSU is a bit unsafe. Here:
I color-matched the parts that weren't color matched ;) and also threw in a MUCH safer PSU
Better CPU, GPU, PSU, and monitor.
Basically the same but a white color scheme and a better PSU
You can disable usage of cores for CAD, and use them for other processes that would enjoy them.
Worse CPU but better GPU, RAM, and a safer PSU.
Slightly over budget. Red/black color scheme. Better CPU than above, but that's what over-budget will get you. It depends on what kinds of games you'll be playing (ArmA likes a good CPU, for example)
I've been told RM is okay, or at least better than CX abd EVGA Supernova. G2 is basically the best, sure, so it's MLG's call.
No disk drive cuz u can put the OS on a USB stick from an ISO download online :P
Well the card I put in would make the CPU/GPU combo $150. A decent i5 with integrated is about $180, so it's your call.
Here is a build that works with yours:
You need a graphics card for a video output since that CPU does not have integrated graphics.
This has a bit better of a CPU and a safer PSU. And underbudget.
Right... Wrong list. Hold on.
Yeah that's pretty much the best. $130 for Win7 though seems like a ripoff.
Why LGA-2011 paired with such a mediocre GPU? I mean it's good but the CPU platfomr is usually for enthusiasts (aka people who throw money at ut like it's gonna save their life). Get an LGA-1150 board with a 4790k and DDR3 RAM to save money and still have a kickass system. Here:
Extra RAM too.
Since you seem like you're not from the US, I'll hust list some hardware.
CPU: any i5 processor or FX-8000 series processor.
Mobo: choose Z97 for Intel if you want the bells and whistles, H97 if you want the same without overclocking capabilities, and anything else for budget. Doesn't matter for AMD, as overclocking on AMD takes pretty hardcore cooling.
CPU cooler (optional): get something quiet if you dont want OC: be quiet! Dark Rock Pro without fans installed would be optimal. For OC go with an H100i or NZXT Kraken coolers.
Storage: with your budget, you could buy 2 Intel 750 series SSDs in RAID 0 (make sure your mobo can support) and a 1TB WD Blue. Or 2 Samsung EVO SSDs. Just look up "fastest SSDs" and pick your favorite.
GPU: a GTX 970. A 980 is overkill and a Titan X could basically turn LoL into a fine paste, but you can afford it so it's your call.
PSU: stick with XFX or Seasonic, or high-end Corsair and EVGA (RM or AX Corsair, G2 EVGA)
Case: Plenty of options. If you want something small, a Corsair Air 240 is awesome, as well as the Enthoo Evolve Mini. With your budget you could do with an InWin case, which is pretty much the Bugatti of cases.
That article actually shows lower idle temps on the 212 than both of those rads and only a few degrees higher on load. And in other cases it is shown that those single rads are worse in load compared with air cooler of the same price, like the Phanteks and Noctua coolers.
You cant be serious. That article actually shows lower temps on the 212 than both of those rads. Read the "lower is better" label above the graph.
You can render stuff in 4k but have a 1080p monitor. Invest in an ROG Swift monitor uf you want best of both worlds (its a 1440p 144 hz monitor)
Either. For 4k you need displayport
