  2. That's literally my PC....except for the RAM. I only have 8 gigs.
    Mine was $850 USD, so I think you found a really good deal.
  3. That looks like a stellar PC. But I'd never get it, as I mostly use a laptop for work.
  4. Mind explaining what you are trying to say ?
  5. I think he's trying to say that it is a really good PC, but he wouldn't use it himself as he needs a laptop for work.

  6. That is a good pc.

  7. That's a high-end (except 4th generation) CPU while you have an old low-end GPU. That will bottleneck you eventually. I'd try to get a GTX 970 or something from the 10XX series. Maybe you should get a bit worse CPU, like an i5-4690k to save some money or just go to the sixth generation with an i5 6600k or i7 6700k.

    4th generation CPU: LGA 1150
    6th generation CPU: LGA 1151

  8. Im buying the i7 4790k as i don't have much choise and i don't want to be buying a new processor for a while and i need fast speed
    I may safe up for a new graphiccard but the current one is not even broken yet and still functions very well
  9. Okay. The 900 series prices might drop soon due to the 1000 series. I'll be looking forward to that.
  10. Hey, just wondering what are some good laptops that you have used, I have really bad luck with them over the years.
  11. Your graphics card and hard drive will be a bottleneck. Also, get Windows 10. install gentoo

  12. Yeah a better Hard drive could help, and also a Graphics card
  13. I'm sticking to windows 7 or 8.1 pro
    Why a new harddrive i currently have the exact same harddrive and haven't had any issues ?

  14. Why get that when you can SE a 2699 v3 and Titan X's for free.
  15. Yeah, that's a killer pc! But... SSD's are really good, try adding a 120gb Samsung evo one for you os. 500 WATS seems low for your power, especially because of that I7-4790k, go for 600+.
  16. I recommend a 5960x with 128GB DDR4 and at the very least a GTX 980ti, but you could always wait for the x80.
  17. Nah thats way to little, quad titans or at least quad gtx 1080s. ;) lol
  18. The funny thing is I wasn't being ironic, I was dead serious.
