Gaming PC Build

Post by DeathStalker on Sun Sep 13, 2015 2:38 am

This is for Those who know what they are doing when it comes to PC builds, Gaming, e.t.c


So for a long time i have saved up to 2,500 USD in order to get my very own WorkStation/Gaming Rig. I will be Streaming on this Rig. I currently have a really old Custom Built PC (my dad handed down) with a GTX 660, and 4gb RAM #timetoupgrade


I use www.pcpartpicker.com to organize the hardware i will be buying, 
https://pcpartpicker.com/user/CrimzonSlayeRx/saved/


Username is CrimzonSlayeRx
Password is H1Z14DAYZ (case sensitive)


So Right Now it's a Total of 2,176 USD (It Includes Operating System, Mouse, Keyboard, Headset, and the Dual Monitor), which seems Reasonable, But i'm sure you can probably help me find better hardware for better Price.


So Basically, i need your advise, and Help in lowering the total Price, without compromising TOO MUCH performance. 


Specs Include:
Spoiler:

Intel Core i7-4790K 4.0GHz Quad-Core Processor
$327.99


Corsair H100i 77.0 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler
$114.99


MSI Z97-GAMING 5 ATX LGA1150 Motherboard
$145.89


G.Skill Ripjaws X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3-1600 Memory
$79.99


Samsung 850 EVO-Series 250GB 2.5" Solid State Drive
$89.89


Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive
$50.89


EVGA GeForce GTX 980 Ti 6GB Video Card
$622.39


Inwin GR One ATX Full Tower Case
$129.99 (since this is a "IN YOUR FACE" gaming Desktop, i don't like a really flashy tower, something, along the design of this. Also can't compromise Airflow)


EVGA 750W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply
$109.99


Asus BC-12B1ST/BLK/B/AS Blu-Ray Reader, DVD/CD Writer
$52.99


Microsoft Windows 10 Home OEM (64-bit)
$97.89


2x Acer S220HQLAbd 60Hz 21.5" Monitor
$99.99 (I'm going into Streaming)


Cooler Master CM Storm Devastator Gaming Bundle Wired Gaming Keyboard w/Optical Mouse
$29.99 (this is Mouse + KeyBoard)


Astro A40 7.1 Channel Headset
$149.99


Other Things i'll be getting Later On:
Vegas PRO, and some Adobe Products, i Currently only have premiere Pro, which i use for AMV's. I will be getting AfterEffects, Flash, Photoshop, Maya 3d, Cinema4d. OK this doesnt Include games, but i already have fcktons of games on my Steam Library. Also, i plan on getting a new Table From Ikea. 


There are Some Specs i can't Compromise, For Example:


I'm NOT changin my mind on 16GB DDR3 RAM, the maker could be different, but it has to be a 16gb ddr3 RAM, ALSO, i'm not changing my mind on the 1TB HDD, and the SSD i could go for either 128 gb or 250 (but i'll only go lower when i've got no choice but to go lower.) BTW i will sell my old PC, after using DBAN to Wipe it, and re-install Windows 7. It should fork over at least 200 USD, that could go towards the expenses.

Smile Thanks Very Much.

What I would suggest is, other than shopping around online, check around locally. Look at any nearby computer stores. Also, I'd suggest waiting til it gets more towards the holidays. Tons of things go on sale then. Should make it pretty easy to get some of the stuff you need that way.

I have been Thinking of Waiting till End of year, Thanksgiving, CyberMonday, Christmas, New-year Sales. (plus i'm probably the only person who gets Christmas, + Eid-adha gifts)It makes sense to wait. But, i have friends who have been bugging me to get on BF4, but my pc runs that shit at 30FPS now.

when it comes to gaming PCs never compromise on price and always get the best you can get as technology is always evolving and what you have will get old really fast, so you need the best you can get.

OR just buy a PS4 and suffice for the next 4 years.

Honestly for gaming, the real big money whores would be CPU and GPU.
RAM used to be expensive but it's lowered in price again (Thank god)
Power supply over 600W is recommended
And normally a 120-150$ motherboard is all you really need. 


You buy what you pay for in PC building. 
Never buy a headset, if you do buy a standalone mic with it (if you're going for games with a lot of communication or if you're streaming) mics on headsets are ass.

Razer is good for mice and keyboards but suck with mousepads and headsets. 


For the games that I play, I have an 8 core AMD processor 3.6 ghz (which cost me around $200 at the time)
and a Gigabyte GTX 960 4GB Windforce graphics card.
I have 16 GB of RAM which at the time only cost around $50 and a 1 TB HDD which is around $70-$90

Games I play: 
Arma 3: solid 30 FPS (normal. Game is insanely hard to run even on the best rigs.)
CS:GO: 300 FPS
Minecraft: 500 FPS
League of Legends: I'm capped at 60 but if I uncap it I'd probably be at 120 or 200.

Other games are also above 50 FPS on max or near max settings.


OT: 
PLEASE OH PLEASE
Get rid of that graphics card and just bridge 2 cheaper ones -.-
My Gigabyte GTX 960 4GB Windforce just get 2 of them. It's way more cost efficient.

For headset or whatevr
Currently I myself am looking for a Yeti or something around those lines for a mic
A headset im leaning towards siberias or a logitec. I just need the audio, I'm paying a bit more for the mic.

for example: one im looking at

with something like this

WOW Neji, Thanks for The Insight, i have considered Bridging the Cheaper ones, but the 980 Ti is Truly Titan X's Younger Brother, it smashed 970 SLI. i'm not sure if it will crush 3 ways or 4 ways SLI, but the 980 Ti, is really Promising, upgrading would just be bridging 2 980 Ti  . 


But i really don't want to Compromise ANYTHING, as Train Said. But i would try undermining for other parts, but not for the GPU and CPU, since those 2 hardware are the bread and butter of Gaming/ Workstation PC. (RAM can be the Orange Juice.) *Analogy OVERLOAD"  


and @anzo, really all you need to do is get a 8 core CPU, and get a Graphics card with GDDR5 RAM, and u just beat a PS4.

I mean unless you're running 4 copies of the most graphic intensive game and streaming at the same tme
You don't really need that graphics card for now xD

Even for streaming.


@anzo 
my custom built pc is 4 years old. Still works as if it's brand new.

I don't know about that. I mean, I pay 400$ each 4/5 years and I'm good. You don't need to worry about performance issues or graphic card capability with your games and whatnot. I'd say it's a pretty darn good deal.

Lol you learn a lot while building your own rig. It's something you can be proud of.
It's your creation and it's better than any console because you made it. Not only does it run better but it does 2, no 3 times more than it with no problem at all

Consoles are made for games, that's the difference. They were made so that you won't have to worry about what parts of your PC you should be replace in order to run X game and that sort of things.

It's down to preference so I won't judge your personal opinion. But being proud of your PC doesn't mean your PC is better than a console. Feelings doesn't run games.
