lmao no problem
The amount of scrolling now necessary to navigate the site is killing me. And it could be fixed so easily...why waste half half of my screen on every page with the ridiculously huge sidebar?
All that empty space on the left (and this effects a lot of pages) could be utilized and make it so I don't need to scroll nearly as much. There is never much information in the sidebar, so why not move it to the top of the page? It wouldn't look quite as nice, but would also spread everything out a lot better and make it so everything isn't awkwardly squished onto the right side of my screen. I'm currently on a 4:3 but I'd imagine it be even worse on a 16:9.
The amount of scrolling and the weird right-lopsided design is really subtracting from the user experience for me, and making the site a daily visit to an occasional one.
Perhaps you could have the sidebar be able to be hidden, like in the image below? Please? I think this is a very good compromise.
I'd really like yours or the designer's input on this.
P.S. Other than this I love the new design, and the mobile site is the bomb-diggity.
get some backplates for those bad boys!
You've got one major choice: Image quality or responsiveness? If image quality (higher resolution and more accurate colors) is your priority, you're going to want to find an IPS panel. If responsiveness (fluid motion and no imput lag) is at all important, I would go for a TN panel with 1 ms GTG and a 120hz or higher refresh rate.
Some good choices:
a 27" 1440p 60hz 5ms IPS display, a 24" 1080p 144hz 1ms TN display, or a 23" 1080p 60hz 5ms IPS display?
I can personally vouch for the last monitor, my friend has one he got for $120 (it frequently goes on sale for this price.) If you don't want to spend $50 over budget for the 1440p monitor, there's no reason to spend more than that on a 1080p monitor in my opinion. You could even afford two of them at this price if you want to try out a multi-monitor setup. If this were my choice personally, I would go for the 144hz monitor. Once you experience it, it's hard to ever go back.
Change out the motherboard for one with a Z97 chipset.
Other than that, yes it's most likely overkill, but there's nothing wrong with that. That graphics card setup should be killer with those monitors.
If gaming is what it's main purpose is, you'd be just fine dropping down to an i5-4690k and 8gb of ram. Then up the graphics card to a 970. IMO
no ****. I meant screen size. The 1080p monitors were 24" and the 2160p monitor is 28"
PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant
Switched out a few things based on comments in this thread....
-Changed from Raid 0 500GB SSDs to a single 1TB SSD
-Changed from a 760W PSU to a 1000W PSU for overclocking and future upgrade headroom
-Changed from dual 144hz 1080p monitors to a single, 60hz but slightly bigger 2160p monitor....still not sure about this one. Might flip a coin for it.
Any other suggestions?
Still having troubles with the same images, was wondering if any conclusion had been made? Haven't heard anything back
EVGA GeForce GTX 970 FTW ACX 2.0
Don't believe it's for sale quite yet, but it's the card I'll be getting soon from EVGA's step up program and I wouldn't mind being able to add it to my part list.
All from a desktop, although the pictures were originally taken on an Android.
Sent over a couple images
When you click on a link to a store on PcPartPicker (for a part or whatnot), PcPartPicker receives an affiliate bonus if you then purchase the product from that link....or so I assume.
I wish I would have known about PcPartPicker affiliate links, I would have clicked here before purchasing :(
I didn't notice you got it for $180--very good price!
Edit: Actually where are you finding all these prices? The lowest I've seen the Z97-G55 is $115
I meant reasonable, technology-aware people.
But other than that, you can crossfire a 280x, and like I said if you're looking for brand specific features (like PhysX) I understand, I just would never make that sacrifice in performance myself.
Since my build is very similar I'm going to guess and say the reason is the 4670k is $30 cheaper than the 4690k and the 4690k provides very little of an advantage over the 4670k.
Why would you sacrifice performance for a brand? Unless you're looking for specifice brand features, I see no reason not to get the card with the best overall performance per dollar.
I'm a nVidia fanboy but would still go for the 290, can't deny it being more powerful. Also, the 770 cannot effectively utilize 4Gb of VRAM.
Also, 1 TB is $7 more, although I doubt they really need the space.
....kind of? Sometimes I'm able to upload a picture and other times the same picture will fail. No idea. I got my the build up but ended up deleting it cause I decided I want to change some things first.
Now get a mechanical keyboard and pop your other cherry [mx switch]
You're going to build it, you DIY man, you!
It's okay man we were all new at one point :)
Well I would have kept the 64GB of memory too so I guess you've at least got better morals than me
LEDs make your computer faster, don't you know?
It's a mobile website, not an app. It works fine already on Android
Would it be easier to at least add in the parts and categories first with a note stating that custom water cooling loop compatibility is not checked at this time?
Kinda confused as to why this is getting so many
upvotes while other builds with basically no
description and only pictures of the exterior get
bombarded with downvotes and "-1" comments.
Is it really only because it's purple?
Hey, I have that printer!
God it's terrible.
I actually found some receipts in my email and was able to get the missing parts after awhile...thanks anyways philip!
So after another day, this is what I've got:
PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant / Benchmarks
Changed the 660 out for the newer and better 270, and upgraded to a 8320 over the 6300, which he is convinced he needs....not as balanced as I'd prefer if it were my own build, but he says he will be using if for "other things then just gaming" sooooo...yeah. Asked him if he still wanted to put in an aftermarket cooler, but he'd rather pocket it and buy one later if the stock turns out to be too loud for him, which I get.
Just a final check to make sure I'm not missing anything obvious, as we will begin purchasing the first parts soon.
Sounds great, I guess he'll be able to get an aftermarket cooler after all....thanks for your input.
Ya know what, I completely forgot about comparing to the AMD side....I'm liking the 270 over the 660. Benchmarks look favorable.
I have no personal experience with AMD GPUs though, this card is alright?
I'll have to ask him what he thinks of it, although I have a feeling he will take my word for it.
its been on sale down to $285 on Newegg
770 is only 50$ more, but yes this would be able to play most new games high/1080p.
oh snap, im sold
your memory is over the recommended voltage
pssh, SLI Titan Z is the only real way to do it. /s.
But honestly, great build.
Obviously not my line of work, more a guess, so thanks for educating me a bit too.
i would assume you would want a dedicated top of the line sound card, being a sound technician, no? or do you have an external solution? cpu has integrated graphics and that motherboard is overly expensive.
Yeah I hate that G.Skill is a reliable and good performing budget RAM too. People should just pick a brand out of a hat.
Awesome cable management for that confined of a space....I would never have the patience for that!
Cooler Master 212 Evo
I would probably buy XFX psu before Corsair personally.
