Thanks for the suggestion - I did forget Ryzen needs faster RAM. I probably will just stick with the Crucial SSD for cost reasons.

Was there an issue with the Optical drive I had? It is Blu-ray capable

Edit: I see it doesn't come with Blu-ray software per reviews.

Thank you - I have or can get windows cheaply, it will be hooked up to a 55" TV.

I have a wireless mouse for it and a temporary wired keyboard for now, added this up top.

I realize what you're asking now! I'm sorry ya they will just ask for your ID or membership information.

I thought you were applying for a credit card there, sorry!

They will just run a credit check to see if you are approved.

Anyone not see Microcenter listed on the site? Been awhile since I've browsed so if it was removed that's news to me!

Thanks,

Noted thanks - I will let you know if it sells before then.

I normally work out my deals through Paypal as it's a much easier process in my opinion. So once I confirm the cost of shipping on top of the monitor price I'd let you know the total.

I normally accept payment first and ship within 3 business days. I have shipped multiple monitors and parts this way and works out just fine.

Just let me know when the time comes

Thanks for the interest!

Thank you however I am also factoring in my own shipping costs, although it is used it hasn't depreciated much and is in great condition.

I cannot offer free shipping like other stores so I will keep my prices steady :)

Thank you and let me know if you might be interested in anything!

EDIT: I like your build btw, nice and clean!

I'd really only consider selling the 27" monitor separately. The extra monitor was really an after thought to someone who might want to buy the whole system as is.

Good condition with a little dust that I will clan off. Never OC'd the CPU on it as I didn't win the silicon lottery :(

I have the original box and believe whatever came with it is there. I can confirm that once home this evening.

The i5 will be okay without an aftermarket as long as you aren't planning to overclock heavily right away.

At the end of the day, ram is ram is ram. However 2x4 configurations allow for dual channel memory advantages. They are slim yes but it is one. However if you think you might end up with 32gs eventually since you will be getting into game design, maybe a 1 x 8 would better suit you

I left the case choice up to you, let me know if you have any questions.

The only difference between 8320 and 8350 - clock speed, overclock

CPU Cooler - Better than stock

990FX Board - Better overclocking capabilities and features

SSD/HDD Combo - allows for programs on the SSD and higher storage capabilities for movies/music/videos on the HDD. Not to mention upgrade from 840 to the 850 series

RAM is RAM

Gigabyte 290x > Diamond

PSU - Gold rated/modular over the bronze rated/semi

All of that for just over $17 more.

I'm glad that you posted this build here and acted arrogantly. It allowed me to help others think of better builds for $1000.

I would definitely consider the build I suggested. It saves you a good bit of money and is very powerful with the ability to upgrade in the future.

What does your son do? If this is strictly for gaming you don't need the x99 chipset.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "New Server Build"

You could probably spend a bit less and go with something like this: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/jXYbrH

  • i3 with hyper threading is plenty for a media streaming and backing up other pcs

  • went with a less expensive set of RAM

  • smaller psu wattage as you don't need much more

  • slightly less expensive SSD however the 850 is a best so if you wanted to change it to that I definitely would if you don't mind paying more

  • WD Greens make great server storage drives as they spin down when not in use and since you will run the OS on the SSD, they will last longer.

  • case is a bit slimmer form factor so it could fit in the living room or in a case more easily

The hyper 212 evo is one of the best performance per dollar coolers on the market. It can handle a 1 ghz overclock with a breeze and AIO liquid coolers aren't worth it unless you pay for the higher end ones.

Congrats on your first build! From what I can tell your cable management is pretty good and your part selection screams value per dollar.

My only change would have been to go with something like the Hyper 212 Evo for the cooler and bump the GPU to a 290/290x depending on price.

+1

the 8320 wouldnt bottleneck and you can slightly overclock a ghz or so with the hyper 212 evo pretty effectively if need be

If you want to spend a few extra bucks and get the 8350 for the higher clock speed out of the box it could be worth it, that way you don't have to spend anything on and aftermarket cooler.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "$1000 build; asking for thoughts"

Higher clock speeds and much lower price points. Really all you're getting is the same clocked chip as the 8350 but with less power draw.

IMO it's not worth the extra money

I would go with the 8320 or 8350 over the 8370

Any step up in a single GPU that you can afford would be a nice idea :) so if you can, yes, get the 280 over the 270x.

Also the only difference between the two processors are power draw and clock speed

I would go with the 6300 and fine a cheaper set of 2x4 8gb RAM: like this

Also you can save a bit by going with MSI's twin FROZR 270x, it's like $5 bucks less with a higher clock speed

z87 motherboards don't have to be bought simply for overclocking. Many of them come with features he could have needed/wanted
