My 1st Build - Page 3

post #21 of 31
I recommend everything Corsair lately. From their cases, to their power supplies, to memory. They have high quality products and great customer service. If you buy an AX series power supply, you can buy individually sleeved cables to replace the standard ones and the power supplies are well worth it. I'm also a big fan of their new cases, the C70 Vengeance series.

Oh, and their self contained liquid cooling units are very nice as well.

That`s funny cause my plan was to build this comp as a basic `netsurfer` for her. The build i`ve posted here was suposed to be my 2nd build- after i`d had a `pratice` build...lol
I think her plan is to do something (anything) to get me off xbox (i play an hour or 2 most nites) so she can get the lounge room/tv back again lmao...
Went like this-
my old pc makes quiet `pop` on power on...lites on on mobo but no bios no nothing...
Its ok-was old n dying n giving more n more problems anyway...plus ive got my laptop n xbox....
shortly after laptop dies...(el cheapo n lasted good few years...)
need new comp - start looking 2nd hand/pre built...mates says dont be stupid build it urself...
start looking into build ur own...more i look more interested i become...
put basic build ($700) to girlfriend- `it`ll do everything ur laptop does only heaps faster....`
`cool...will it play ur games?`
`yes probably, but not very well...` (thinking to self perfect reason build 2nd comp)
`but we can upgrade it later to play games? how much would that cost? wouldnt it be cheaper and easier to just put the better bits in now?`
`ummm yeah` (cornered now)
and here we are lmao

well played my dear...well played...lmao

She knows i like the redblack colour and am more than interested in watercooling...the more i think about it the more she`s getting into it im starting to think mine mite end up the `practice build` for hers...lmao

If you want to go a full custom water cooled rig, I say go for it. It's great fun, but be careful because cost can add up quick. Though I am more of a fan of overbuilding than anything. I like to see how far I can push it. If you really want to make a nice PC, make sure to put the effort foreward as well. It might seem like too much before you do it, but when you are finished it will all be worth it. I love building computers and tinkering with them constantly.

Watercooling is very $$$ and doesn't give much advantages IMO.

That said, I would recommend the new Caviar Blue, its the latest drive from WD with single platter for higher performance (more info http://www.overclock.net/t/1297633/wd10ezex-review-wd-blue-1tb-single-platter-drive)

Are Tyre asrock fatality series boards any good?
Would it be better spend extra on asus rog board?
Good news-money came thru earlier an a bit more than we expected so got little more budget-
Should we need use it...but while its got heaps extra 'features' I just can't see the value in the asus rog boards...

Watercooling-will happen later-going save it as a later upgrade...


Thanks again everyone-i'm really enjoying this project-even in my confused planning stages...
So please bear me an we'll get there eventually...lol
post #27 of 31
I dont really know much on the fatality series boards, but I have not heard much bad about them. Look at the sabertooth series boards, they are very nice and have most of the features of the ROG series... well at least the ones that you would be using. MSI & Gigabyte make good boards as well, so dont leave them out, and they have better customer service than ASUS.
