  1. Dear Comunity, I am planning on building a Custom PC that I can use for 3D Rendering, Animation, Video editing and gaming to some extent (not a priority though). However I have never built a custom PC, which is why I don't know which components work best together. I am on a budget of maximum 1.500 Euros (1590 US Dollars). As well as this I am planning on keeping this build for the next 4-5 years, so that it isn't outdated in the next 2. At the moment the only component that I have bought is the tower, (Phanteks Eclipse P400), CPU: Intel Core i7-7700 RAM: HyperX Fury Black 8GB DDR4 2133MHz (2x) Motherboard: ASUS ROG STRIX X99 GAMING PCU: Super Flower Leadex Gold 650W? I am not sure how to determine which is best. Graphic Card: GeForce GTX 1060. Two if possible CPU Cooling: Noctua NH-D15. Again, I am not shure if there is a better solution for cooling, that keeps it on budget. If I add up all the components as listed above, (2x the gtx 1060, as well as 2x he RAM) it adds up to 1610 EU (1700 US Dollars). Which is over my budget. Could you help me in changing some components so that the budget fits? Thank you very much, Anton Rabanus
  2. Hey guys, This is my very first custom build, and I don't have very much experience in this area. I would like you to review/comment on my custom PC build. This particular build is designed to be a budget PC that can be upgraded in the future. I need it for every day tasks (such as schoolwork, and browsing the web), and some light gaming. Please don't hesitate to be brutally honest. Here's my build: AMD FX 8350 (8 Core) - $149.99 Gigabyte GA-78LMT - 48.45 2 Sticks of 4gb G.Skills X-Series (DDR3) - $29.99 Western Digital Caviar Blue 360gb - $22.90 EVGA GEFORCE GTX-7 0 TI - $119.99 Deepcool TESSARACT Mid-Tower Case - $30.99 Logisys 480W ATX Power Supply - $11.90 Total: $414.21
  3. Hi all, Long time reader of the forums but now I need some help. My old laptop just isn't cutting it and frankly I'm so far removed from building PCs I don't know what is compatible with what anymore, and/or what to be cautious of over-investing in for no reason. My main goals are: As cool as possible (obviously) but as quiet as possible as well.Scalable/ExpandableCrossfire compatible (would love to have dual GFX nor or in future)Uses: gameplay capturing from PS4, gaming and video editing/rendering.On budget ($1200 is the ideal, but I doubt I'm getting parts for $25 a pop :P)I live in Ontario, Canada so any recommendations where I can go physically pick up parts is even better. Thank you in advance!
