Debian or Linux Mint.
Mild gaming, some CAD, some UDK. I already have a big desktop, this would be for travel.
I am thinking of almost an exact replica of this build, only with a different case and a 750ti. Should I go ahead?
It is ok, if you dont want to use a DVD drive, because the DVD drive sticks out of the an inch. It has some nice features, but cooling is mediocre, and cable managment is pretty bad if you dont have a fully modular PSU.
thanks! Is there a reason you are commenting on all my posts?
Hey, its alright. I like to hear feedback.It is an ok build, made with spare parts. I sold it on CL for $850.
PFFFT. Linux plays nice with everything. It just takes some tweaking sometimes. My toaster can run linux.
Nice build! PC for the win!
I have used the coolermaster hyper 212 evo, it rocks.
Nice build. Great for the $.
the 7750 is slower and more expensive. why would he do that?
that cooler cpu is awesome.
Finnaly. someone who has half a smart in them. I believe this was too much $ for this build, but it is an ok build with some thought in it.
Really?, Really?! this was posted like 6+ months ago. do you honestly think that 1. It matters anymore, and 2. The case was released recently. Long after I built this!
great idea. will post links when I am done.
of course. sorry forgot to mention that. I never use windows unless I am gaming on my windows machine.
Why two hdd and no ssd's?
You are absolutely stupid. the 2600k is one of the best cpu's around. even though it is about 3 years old, it still blows loads of other cpu's out of the water.
2-2.5. Alternative is "The New Mac Pro," and I dont want to shell out 3k for the baseline build. I have built pc's before, so I am fairly experienced, so no worries there, I am not usually a mac user.
edit: here is the new build http://pcpartpicker.com/p/2kpUx
I have 3 of those monitors and I love them. great mix of price and performance. nice build, how are you liking the 280x? I heard it is pretty much identical to the 7950, but it cost a few extra $'s.
Woah, nice build, the pictures do it justice. what camera/lense did you use? i am planning on getting a dslr camera soon, leaning twords a cannon rebel t3i, but i may change my mind depending on what you are using
ok build, but did you really need to watercool a 770? i think i saw a video of a guy cooling a 770 with a discreet "(fanless) 9800gt cooler, with temps around 30c medium load. its a cool card and water cooling it is just overkill. leave that for titans, 780's, and 690's, along with 7970's, 7990's (is there a water block for the 7990? if so, can someone please link it?)
that case was part of one of my very first builds :) thanks for the blast from the past. also, love the rest of the build. how is that power supply, its a little pricy for just 850watts?
will do, thanks. getting my parts in monday.
I think it should be fine, i tested it with a radeon 7870xt and a 6300, as well as a 8350, and both ran at 40+ fps minimum, I would suggest an intel build for planetside2 though, go ivybridge, mabye an i5 3570k, and overclock it to 4.0ghz or something, that seems to be the best situation right now.
Love the build, hope you dont mind I am recreating it almost identicaly, just I am using two 760's instead of 1 770. You know they say, mimicry is the greatest form of flattery
I built a pc on here that I named fire and ice. mine was a little more beastly than yours,but nice build for the price, besides the crap psu, you need to ditch that thing ASAP, totally unstable!
What camera did you use to take those nice pics? also, the build rocks.
That is such a sexy case. have fun with her!
I love the build and that awsome case. can you come over and paint all mine like that? dont mind the stream flowing through my front hall, thats what I get for living in "sunny colorado" :P
oh jeez. I really hope pcpartpicker doesn't become a friggin spam whole of these things. please only post pc's you have built and that actually have real pictures. this is not the place to post things like this.
great parts! epic win for this build! how is that puny power supply handling the 7950 though?
I am looking at a build very simular to yours. how are you liking it?
the cpu cooler is a tad overkill and your cpu is bottle necking your gpu a ton, aqnd your cable manegment could use some work, but other than that, great budget build
I have a plethora of links with parts that I have used with some server parts that I have used. is there a place that I could post them?
lol. ok part picks, just make sure he cleans up those cables!
not such a great build, with the outdated video card and massive amount of ram, but fear not, you can always make that extra ram into a ram disk to make your preformance scream.
mabye he likes the cool black sleved whires on the adapters! i do. looks pretty nice, but its crap for airflow :P
I am also in the US, I really dont know what to offer for them. I guess there are some going for about 60-80$ on ebay, so something like 100$ for the two cards seems reasonable. let me know what you think through a private message
I definitely want a chunk of this computer history, how much do you want?
lol. I would buy those from you just to hang on my wall.
the 400 series of graphics cards was great, as I remember :) I picked up a gts 450, the most budget friendly card of the era for my little sisters gaming wants, thinking I was going to have to upgrade within the month, but I never did, saw her through many great games, and ran crysis, which made her happy, intil it died late last year and I upgraded her to a 6970.
try switching the cooler around. it is all screwed up the way it is now, with the airflow
damn I like that case. how did you like building in it?
mhh. the only way I know of this working is if your laptop it outfitted with thunderbolt pci-e enclosure, and those are kinda expensive, running at 400+$, which most arent. in most cases, it is cheaper to sell the laptop and save that money you wanted to spend on the enclosure an gpu and buy a better laptop with nice gpu. the lenovo thinkpad y500's are going pretty cheep and you can outfit them with dual 765m's! I have the dual gtx 640m model and it kills in games and high gpu intensity tasks like video editing.
why the nicethermal paste? the stuff on the heatsink is pretty good and should last a wile. just saying, coulda saved 7$
I love it. ssd's can really speed up a system.
I also like the windows 8 environment. dont know what all the fuss was about :P
