Windows 10: New Gaming Rig Build
New Gaming Rig Build
Whats up guys!
So in continuation with my other thread, Im building a new PC. On wed, im having someone come and buy my current desktop for $1300. With that money, i will be building another PC which costs exactly the same with shipping to my address.
As far as my laptop, i was going to give it to my mother, but its WAY WAY over powered for her use. so i am going to try and sell it for 1000 and with that money, im going to be buddying up with my brother to buy my mother a decent laptop that suits her needs.
We got an "estimate" on how much it would be to ship my desktop, and it was close to $150. but then i would receive it and would want to replace the GPU at a minimum. so then i would have trouble selling the current GPU in it. and on top of that, its way to big and i cant lock it up when i leave. So this new one is a mini ITX build that i can just put back in the box that it came in and send it where ever without too much concern.
hopefully i will end up walking away with a few extra bucks in my pocket and some spare parts for the new rig.
So with that, here are the new parts!

The HDDs and SSDs are left overs from previous builds. so the only thing extra ill have to buy is a monitor which i can get anywhere here.
I think these components will last me a good 4 years. i should only have to upgrade the GPU a little further down the line.

I think i'm jealous about this new build.
im just stuck on the GPU....
Idk what to get. From what i read, EVGA runs the hottest but has amazing customer support, MSI is the middle card but ive had BAD experiences with MSI GPUs and MOBOs, and the Gigabyte which runs the coolest and fastest, but im unsure if i will be able to fit it correctly in the case.
im kinda torn between the EVGA SC and the MSI Gaming X.

I like the FTW edition because of the double bios, ive played with bios before and if they every decide to come out, certain bios have better efficiency and higher FPS than others, but from the looks of these cards, most clock within 100mhz of each other. between 2050-2150MHz and overcloking does not yield much more than ~ 5fps.
Im thinking MSI Unless i should go with the G1. u guys think it would fit? thats the only real reason i havent gotten the G1

well, after much research, i found out that the EVGA 1070 FTW and MSI card would NOT fit in the case. too wide, power cables hit the window, however, the Gigabyte G1 does fit, which is good because its the coolest and fasted running stock card. The EVGA SC 1070 was the other option, but it heats up a lot more than all the other cards so the benchmarks say.
Also i found out that my M.2 SSD would not ship to APO/FPO address, so ill have to skip on that for now. it will be an upgrade later however.
First post updated.
Patrick they have shorter 1070 and 1080 cards just have to look for them Microcenter has them they are for mini ATX builds like yours
The G1 will fit without issues. I found a lot of build threads for the case I'm using and everyone got it in there with no issues
System Specs updated
Model name translates to "Always fighting Green Weenie" Some of you military folks may like that... lol
just ordered my parts including a 250GB samsung 850 Evo M.2 SSD
Look at you Mr Badass lol good job Patrick i would like to know how that M2 performs i might snatch one for Xmas if it's faster than my EVO 840 ssd
I'm not sure I'm going to do this as to my surprise I'm not experiencing any gaming problems with an EVGA FTW 1080 and an X58 MB and first generation I7980X processor. But if I do make a change and put this EVGA 1080 in a proper PCI lane 3.0 instead...
What parts would you recommend?
Hello, this is my first post on this forum so bear with me.
I placed this in general discussion and not gaming because the update 10586.164 seems to affect the general performance of the computer. I reverted back to build 10240 and the performance...

The Nvidia site has a recent blog post suggesting parts for a $450 gaming pc.
They are not selling the parts (well except for the video card) but are just quoting current average prices
for parts available elsewhere.
