I had a crack at it too ... quite close to Agoriaz's builds frankly, just a few changes here and there; faster RAM, smaller SSD to increase the storage (need a programs/storage drive if you're doing professional work) and Haswell-refresh CPU for the better thermal performance thus overclocking, plus a "fatter" AIO CPU cooler.For another $50 or so you can double the SSD ... over-budget, but probably worth it frankly. [[SPOILER]]
At this point, I would most certainly only consider the Devil's Canyon Haswell-refresh. The i5-4690k is the choice for gaming (and reasonably regular upgrade cycles) IMO, and whilst nobody can absolutely guarantee overclock performance, theoretically the 4690k will overclock much better 4670k due to temps at the minimum. As for the 4770k, I would suggest that the 4790k is the choice you should be considering for the obvious reasons. I would only suggest it being...
I was waiting for the confirmation of specs for the Nexus 9 before making my decision, and thanks Google - my decision is *EASILY* made ... that price, with no microSD expansion (yet again ) ... it doesn't make the 64bit Tegra chip or extra 1" of screen-space of the Nexus 9 at all appealing enough to choose it over the Xiaomi MiPad, the 64gb version (with a 128gb microSD) now being 100% what I am getting, and still seems to be *THE* price/performance tablet choice (with...
You're welcome. I've made a slight change to the first build, as the first draft posted missed a CPU difference I thought I had added. The i5-4590 has a significant enough clockspeed increase in turbo over the i5-4440 (3.5-3.7ghz vs. 3.1-3.3ghz) to warrant the extra money, especially in a non-overclock build. Let me know if I can help further
I've thrown together this build, though forgetting the need to include an O/S I may have under-stated/estimated the price requirements.This is kind of your "no-overclocking-required-can-handle-everything" build. [[SPOILER]] If overclocking was on the cards, I would change things around to this to distribute money between other components increasing CPU performance/longevity significantly enough to warrant it. With careful tweaking, performance should be approximately the...
Hello mate. Where are you located? Thats my first question. If it's the USA, 1) do you have a preferred website to use, and 2) are you near a Microcenter store? Do you know what monitor she has already, or at least what size/refresh-rate/resolution? Are there specific games which you play and wish to run particularly well ie: Physx enable games? Does she have high storage requirements? What kind of school work is it, as in, general academic (MS Office & interwebs) or...
Awesome! Love the short time frame - consider me in with thanks and kudos regardless
Thankyou for the thoughtful and relevant response. Most appreciated. +Rep I don't expect I'll be gaming all that much on any tablet if/when I get one, but having the Tegra K1 is certainly a positive if/when I did. The price difference and value-for-money factor is certainly one guiding my decision, and I concur with your thoughts. Cheers!
Sigh ... nearly-4-day bump. Anybody out there? ..... helllloooooo........ 55 views and not even a single poll-vote? I guess this isn't a topic people are interested in commenting on or even thinking about
2-day bump. I sure hope someone has something to say or at least a vote on the poll soon ... tl:dr, the generational-defining textspeak, amiright?
