  1. The pc will have a 1080 (our local store has nice discounts on few of them, they basically cost the same as 1070..) and I need help with the rest. For the processor, I would be more inclined towards intel, but I heard good things about Ryzen as well. This is my old pc, if any parts are usable for the new build, then I wouldn't mind (but it might be better to keep the old one functional so I can maybe give it to someone): ASUS M5A97 R2.0 - AMD 970 AMD Vishera FX-6300 Seasonic SS-500ET-F3 500W, OEM Kingston HyperX PnP 8GB (2x4GB) 1600 DDR3 GELID Solution Tranquillo - revision 2 CoolerMaster Force 500 I don't really care about the cost as long as it's reasonable (basically a pc that works with 1080). I will be probably using an ultrawide 1440p, high refresh rate. If you have any recommendations for that, then that would be welcome as well :). Also an advice on which 1080 to pick would be nice, these are my options (they are pretty much the same price): EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 FTW2 GAMING iCX, 8GB GDDR5X MSI GeForce GTX 1080 ARMOR 8G OC, 8GB DDR5X Zotac GeForce GTX 1080 AMP Edition, 8GB GDDR5X GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 1080 Xtreme Gaming Premium Pack 8G, 8GB GDDR5X PALiT GeForce GTX 1080 GameRock Premium Edition, 8GB GDDR5X

  6. Hi. I am new to all of this PC building and honestly i suck at it finding out whether or not these components are compatible with eachother and worth the money. So if you custom-PC veterans could offer me some help i would be happy. My build is listed below this section. Asus x99-A socket 2011-3 MSI GTX 950 GAMING 2G Intel core I5 4690k-4 Fury memory black 16GB kit Zalman z11 plus-midi tower (case) Corsair CX750 - 750W PSU Samsung 850 EVO MZ 75E250 250 GB Toshiba DTO1ACA200 2TB Corsair h75 hydro series CPU cooler some kind of thermal compound? BenQ Gaming RL2455HM (Monitor) Since i am new to all this i am willing to listen to any and all advice.
  7. So my old computer is dead. Rip. It's time for a new beast. Here's the specs. Case: Raidmax Seiran II Gaming Case Processor: Intel® Core™ i7-4790 Processor (4x 3.60GHz/8MB L3 Cache) ProcessorCooling: Asetek 510LC Liquid CPU Cooling System [SOCKET-1150] - ARC Silent High Performance Fan Memory: 16 GB [8 GB x2] DDR3-2133 Memory Module - Corsair or Major Brand VideoCard: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960 - 2GB - Single Card Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z97X-SLI -- 2x PCIe x16, 4x USB 3.0, 2x USB 2.0 PowerSupply: 600W Standard HardDrive: 1 TB Hard Drive -- 32MB Cache, 7200 RPM, 6.0Gb/s - Single Drive OpticalDrive(Mandatory): LG Blu-ray Reader SoundCard: 3D Premium Surround Sound Onboard NetworkCard: Onboard LAN Network (Gb or 10/100) Total Cost= $850-$900 (various discounts pending) The pc will mainly be used for gaming and basic C++ and C# programming tasks. Is there anyway I can shave some money off without changing the Video Card and Hard Drive? Ill also be having the Hard Drive arrive pre-formated, and have my local repair shop install Windows 7. Having it come with windows 7 is an extra ~$150. How did I do? If anything is off please let me know. I like my house and don't want it to burn down when I plug it in for the first time. Dont know if this matters, but I used to build it. Recommended from a friend but if there is a better (cheaper) place to go Ill go there.
  8. I've been wanting to get a new PC for a long time, and I finally have the funds to do so. I've decided to get my new gaming PC through NCIX, as they will assemble it, install the OS/Drivers, and test everything before sending it for $50, as well as adding 1 year warranty on the system on top of the warranty of individual parts. For someone who is not technically savvy enough to put together a professional-looking pc, this was a no brainer. Here is the build I'm currently considering:PCPartPicker part list: breakdown by merchant: Intel Core i5-4690K 3.5GHz Quad-Core Processor ($234.99 @ NCIX US) Motherboard: ASRock H97 Anniversary ATX LGA1150 Motherboard ($84.99 @ NCIX US) Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3-2133 Memory ($189.99 @ NCIX US) Storage: Sandisk Solid State Drive 128GB 2.5" Solid State Drive ($44.99 @ NCIX US) Storage: Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($49.99 @ NCIX US) Video Card: EVGA GeForce GTX 970 4GB ACX 2.0 Video Card ($329.99 @ NCIX US) Case: Phanteks Enthoo Pro ATX Full Tower Case ($98.99 @ NCIX US) Power Supply: EVGA 500W 80+ Bronze Certified ATX Power Supply ($49.99 @ NCIX US) Operating System: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 OEM (64-bit) ($88.88 @ NCIX US) Total: $1172.80Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when availableGenerated by PCPartPicker 2015-08-22 19:23 EDT-0400Some things that I have have my heart set on:- Windows 7 - The case has to have quality built-in dust filters like the Phantex Enthoo Pro- I really would like to have an SSD in this build- I would really like to have 16GB of Ram- I do not plan on overclocking at allThis PC is pretty much at the top of my budget, I don't want to go too much over this price. This is going to be primarily a gaming pc (for games like Skyrim and Fallout:NV with a hundred mods, texture packs and ENBs, and newer ones like Witcher 3, Far Cry 4, hopefully Phantom Pain and Fallout 4, etc.) I'm hoping it can run newer games (like Witcher 3) at 1080p 60fps no problem.So what are your thoughts on my build? Anything you'd swap out or change? Any potential issues that you see? Will any of my components be holding back other ones? Will this give me the 1080p60fps on new games that I want? Should it last me a good amount of time, specs-wise? Also, has anyone ever used NCIX's PC Assembly option? I've heard good things about it, but would love to hear from someone on these forums.I really appreciate any input you guys can give me.
  9. So I will be building a new computer soon (just waiting for the rest of my parts to come in) and I would like to get some tips and safety advice for overclocking the computer below.The Build - the research I've done, it seems as though you just increase the voltage manually, get a stable clock speed with temperatures around 65-C, get a fixed voltage and set an offset voltage. Is that true? Is there anything else I should be concerned about when modifying any of these settings such as TuboBoost or SmartCache (if that is even an option?)Also I have no idea what I should set my offset voltage to. From what I hear, it means that it adds or subtracts to my default voltage when the CPU is under load... Is that true?Any response is taken into consideration. All of the info above is what I got from doing research on the subject. If you could list as many tips on stability that come to mind I'd be very grateful.
  10. Hello there. I plan on building a PC in the future for my parents to use. If you could name parts that are cheaper or just-as-good as the ones listed, I'd be very grateful. General uses: Creating Word documents, browsing websites, downloading music, light photo editing and possibly light gaming. Extra note: I'm going to spray paint the Speakers and Optical Drive to fit the color of the Case. Keyboard+Mouse bundle recommendations are nice, preferably cheap ones that match the case. The Build - Any response is appreciated.
  11. 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/Expandable Crossfire 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!
  12. Hey guys, I'm new to all this so I'd like your opinion on this build: Is everything compatible/does everything make sense? I'd like to be able to play most games on high settings. Tell me what you think. (I'm a big n00b dont laugh at my build pls)
  13. Hello, I have purchased parts to build a custom desktop PC, and wanted to have some people review the build.

  14. I have been using Macs the last 13 years for editing and motion graphics. Recently Macs are becoming less and less upgradable and financially unviable and I want to switch to PC but have no idea where to start. It is like learning a whole new language, especially trying to "build" a work station. I am coming off using a Mac Pro (late 2013), My main programs of use are Adobe Premiere, After Effects, Photoshop. My secondary are Cinema 4D, Nuke and Moca. I have around $3.5K budget and am looking for: 32GB Ram 8-10 cores SSD for main drive I use 2 monitors (DP) I have heard good things about AMD FirePro W8100 but again this is all new to me. any help would be much appreciated.
  15. I am currently looking to replace an ageing laptop that has gotten me through university with a new desktop build. I am looking to spend approximately £800 on the tower, then a further £200 on a wireless desktop and monitor. I'd like to get some opinions on the build have created below and the best places to get custom builds from in the UK. I am looking for a PC that fulfils the following: i5 or i7 intel processor Solid state drive 2TB+ hard drive SD card reader Wireless GTX 750 Ti graphics card or similar standard Minimum 8gb 1600MHz ram Windows 8.1 OS DVD drive Coolermaster silencio series case or similar No overclocking intentions, stock fan No office / anti-virus or other software I have looked at builds from the following companies: Chillblast (overcharge for wifi and SD card options) Mesh (competitive, just not quite there, good service from experience) pcspecialist cyberpowersystem cougar exreme computer planet buildyourbox dinopc novatech and many others! The best build that I believe I have found is £805 from Coolermaster Silencio 352 Silent Gaming Case Intel Core i5 4690 3.5Ghz Haswell Refresh Quad Core Processor CPU, 1150, 3.9GHz Turbo 2 x Hyper X Savage 8GB RAM DDR3 2400MHz Desktop Memory Module MSI Z87M-Gaming Intel Z87 Socket 1150 Express Chipset Motherboard Kingston SSDNow V300 120GB SSD Solid State Hard Drive Standard Intel Cooler Asus GTX 750 Ti Video Graphics Card, 2 GB Cit 500W Active 80+ Bronze 85% Efficient Power Supply Unit TP-Link TL-WN881ND 300Mbps Wireless N PCI Express Adapter Seagate Barracuda 2TB SATA-600 7200RPM 64MB 3.5" Hard Drive Windows 8.1 Standard x64 Samsung Internal Black DVD RW SATA 5.25" Writer Questions: 1) Are there any errors or particular weak points in this build? 2) Are the motherboard and PSU selections decent? (gaps in my PC knowledge) 3) Does anyone know of any other reputable, good value for money, reliable custom pc building companies that could compete with this on price? Thanks for the help.
