PC build opinions (mainly reliability) - Page 2

post #11 of 20

Yeah, not to mention not being able to see the CPU's core voltage.

It's a computer!

I like the build. Similar to mine.

Which resolution and FPS will you be gaming?

can you link to some local online hardware stores?

2cents.gif If I were you, and reliability was my top priority, I wouldn't go with "experimental" tech like Skylake and DDR4. Get a Devil's Canyon and some 2400Mhz DDR3.

Ain't DDR3 and Devil's Canyon getting phased out soon? By reliability I meant among newer parts, but thanks anyway.

That's where I'm buying from: visionstudio.gr (Google translate it, it's in Greek only)

As I've originally posted, I'll be gaming at ultra graphics 1080p, 60fps on the majority of both current and upcoming games.

from what you've said so far, i would recommend against the asus ROG board. doesn't sound like you are going to push your machine and if you do overclock, you won't be going too much above the turbo clock in the 1st place. gaming mobo use higher quality parts but that's not to say that the higher grade boards like "deluxe" series use lesser parts. you are better off just get a mid grade mobo with that build and go high end when you finally feel the need to push your rig hard. having a gaming mobo doesn't automatically make your rig a gaming system. if you want to go with a serious system, then go with the ROG board, but also go with a noctua cooler, GTX980Ti, K series CPU, etc... just having 1 or 2 gaming grade components doesn't make the whole thing a gaming rig. it's like buying a Ferrari chassis, but put a bunch of Ford components into it biggrin.gif just because the chassis is Ferrari, doesn't mean it's going to perform like a Ferrari if it doesn't have all the matching components.

this is priced around the 970 and would perform as good on DX11 and better on DX12

what if you can buy from a nearby country in the EU? for a better video card

Haha, that's exactly the one I'm considering right now! Is it any good?

Actually I can't buy anything from abroad yet, because I live in Greece and there have been capital controls imposed. frown.gif

Damn didn't they lift those bans yet? That sucks. How are the prices over there? A GTX970 here in Turkey is usually between $420-$500 depending on the model.

depends on what games you would play

For most of games the 390s match it but for some like WoW a nvidia gpu is a lot better,for games that use mantle the 390 have an advantage on performance,and games that use async shaders(DX12) perform better on the 390
