I am a little confused about what this is supposed to be. You have two pictures of different computers and they seem to have different parts from those in your parts list. Some clarification about this build would be nice.

I remember seeing the S Frame at Fry's several months ago. It is majestic. Too bad it costs more than my entire build.

Microsoft Office is my favorite game. It is a little overpriced, though.

To get the right temps for a stress test, you need to run it for at least an hour, then take the temps.

Yes. On pull and one push is not enough airflow for this build.

30 times better is an exaggeration. He got a great deal on the 285, and spending $40 more doesn't make sense for a 3-4 fps boost in some games.

I used the same case on my last build as this one. I'm sorry if that was unclear. I added an extra fan to it this time, though, to increase airflow.

The I was using the mouse that came with my keyboard, but for my birthday I was given a Razer mouse as a gift.

Anyway, thanks for the comment and compliment!

Dat formating doe.

On a more serious note, as the owner of an 860k and a 750ti, I can affirm that this is a great combo. If you have the extra 20-40, I recommend a 950 or 960, but the 750ti serves me just fine.

What a great uncle. My uncle handed me a 3 year old pc. When it blue screened, the only advice he could offer me was to try to get the 25+ digit error code in the couple of seconds it flashed on the screen. Long story short he took it and replaced the gpu. This fixed the blue screen, but I was kind of unhappy that I didn't understand what happened in the first place. Thank you for passing something on to the younger generation.

Sadly, with the combination of a very cheap case not designed for any cable management at all, and the very old PSU not designed for cable management either, I am unable to cable manage. Trust me, I tried. Then, with tired, bloody hands, I gave up.

Go to NCIX or Newegg. I don't know where you were shopping before, but they should not charge such a ridiculous amount.

Get a new cpu cooler and then oc that cpu. It isn't really that big of a bottleneck actually, but OC'ing will increase some game's performance.

Nope. I was lucky and got the latest version right out of the box.

It gets loud when the CPU is under load. Otherwise, idle noise is great, the case fans are louder. It can be moderately loud, but never annoyingly so.

I did put some new thermal paste that I had to the CPU cooler. I forgot to add it to the list. It dropped temps about 3 or 4 degrees.

I remember when I saw jipster comments for the first time. I remember thinking "Who is this guy? Why does he have 69 in his name? And why is he commenting on everyone's builds?" but he always had positive things to say and his little comments grew on me. I was a little sad to see him leave.

Thanks! I have been using that PSU for about 6 years now, and it is still going strong. The computer I had before this one was built (and later fixed) by my uncle. Sadly, I am probably going to have to replace it because the fan is getting really loud.

4.0 Is just the turbo clock. I plan on screwing around with OC when I have the time. I love the mobo, it looks nice and I did not have to BIOS update for my Athlon, so I was a happy. I love the 750ti too. It is silent and works great for 1080p. I am going to wait and see what budget offerings Pascal offers before considering an upgrade.

The biggest thing I learned from all of this is to never make an uninformed decision. An hour or two of reading and learning can save you a lot of hassle in the long run.

On my 860k, the thermal readings are way off. Even with an aftermarket cooler, it gives me readings of 100°c while gaming.

The worst thing about intel is its fanboys. Spending an extra 100 dollars on a cpu isn't magically going to increase game performance, no matter what Tom's Hardware says.

860k is great. The only game I have found that is bottlenecked by it is Arma 3 on huge 100+ multiplayer servers.

How so? Both are excellent, with the only disadvantage being the locked CPU. The 960 isn't too far off from a 970 and you should be able to max many game's settings with it.

FYI, with SSDs, the more data they have on them the slower they get. For some reason this isn't common knowledge. It won't affect games outside of load times. It will affect boot speed though. I have a 240 gb drive and when I filled it up I went from a 7 second boot time to 15. I took my games off the drive and went down to 8 seconds.

Do you watch Linus Tech Tips? That same orange color is what Linus calls their company color. I was wondering if you were influenced by that.

I agree. The 860k would have been a better choice here. Also, ssds are wonderful and will speed your PC up considerably. I strongly recommend investing in one.
