So how did I do? $1000 budget gaming build. - Page 2

post #11 of 142

Awesome, i'm trying to get as much bang for my buck as possible. Hoping i'll be able to keep this rig relevant for a while.

Any idea when the new GTX800 series might debut? It seems like right now isn't really the greatest time to build a pc, with no major hardware releases recently or upcoming. I just couldn't wait though!

I wish I had the money to drop on a 780 or Titan! But i've also seen quite a few benchmarks showing the 760sli beating the Titan!

Do you have any reason why you want to go SLI so badly?

I would suggest just going with a 780 instead. (also what resolution are u going to play at?)

theres only 2 reasons to go SLI/Xfire. IMO
1) their current GPU is old generation, and need 1 more to keep it "modern"
2) they getting the best GPU, but its not enough for what they want (higher than 1080p gaming)

and as others suggested, get a cheaper priced PSU (theres cheaper PSU for better quality) and 1TB HDD and squeeze out a 770 instead.

as for the case, i dont think its a good idea just to go with the case because it comes with 5 fans. most likely, they are crappy and your going to have to replace them anyways for a OC'ed rig.

You can get the source 210 windowed from Neweg with a 15$ MIR, possibly gotta cut into HDD to make it fit though....

agreed

and i hear alot of people mentioning about SLI problems (stuttering and stuff on GPU's part)

also, I just think its easier to handle a single $500 card instead of two $250 card.

along with what i said at post #13

titans are horrible price/performance. not a good GPU to look at to see compare price/performance.


but, the sli 760 only has like 10-15% increased performance compared to the 780 (on average), and even then, its with EVERYTHING maxed.

do you really care about 150 fps vs 120 fps??

Pretty much because I just dont have the funds to drop on a card that expensive all at once. The 760sli just seems like the most cost effective and "future proof" solution for me. And even with the 760, im only going to be able to purchase 1 at a time, so the actual dual sli wont happen until i'm unsatisfied with the single 760's performance.

And i will be running at 1920x1080

Power consumption won't be an issue for the CX750M.

 

generalkayoss: are you open to AMD's cards? Would you be open to an R9 290? The R9 290 beats a GTX 780.

 

 

Edit: Oh wait. Not enough money to spend all at once. It can be worth saving up though. The 770 is just a GTX 680 with much better memory.

It's a computer!

Any of you guys play DayZ by chance? I've absolutely fell in love with it after just watching videos on youtube. So much potential!
