    Default My first PC build

    I recently saved up enough money to fullfill on of my aspirations: To build my own epic PC!

    Here are the specs. I built this about 4 months ago:

    800W Cooler Master Silent Pro Gold
    Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-2500K CPU @ 3.30GHz (4 CPUs), ~3.3GHz (the new Sandybridge processor)
    Minor Overclocked up to 3.6ghz
    RAM: 12288MB i.e 12GB
    Maximus IV Gene-z Motherboard.

    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580 1.5GB RAM
    4GB of total Display Memory

    1TB Western Digital HDD
    1TB Western Digital External HDD
    2 64GB m4 Solid State Hard drives in a RAID set up.

    An average DVD RW
    Average keyboard
    Cyborg RAT3 Mouse


    The motherboard is built for heavy overclocking. I got this one specifically so that i can invest a small amount of money into better cooling systems and just overlock it when games can readily make use of that power.

    Total Cost was 1090GBP or about 1500 US dollars

    and here are the games i have installed:

    Cool. The CPU is a bit weak though. But I guess you may not do video encoding or other CPU-bound activities.

    It's the same CPU I was thinking of buying for my SC2 specific computer :/. Do you think it will run it alright on low settings and maybe be able to stream in the future?

    Also @LivioRazlo , how are you liking the GPU? It's one I've been meaning to check out to see if I can use it on my build.

    LivioRazlo: You should consider investing in an SSD. They can more than double the IO speed over conventional hard drives. Put your operating system and core applications on one of those suckers, and your computer will be a lot faster.

    The main difference is in the hyper-threading. Otherwise the i5 2500k is about the same as the i7 2600k (what I have). You'll probably be okay.

    My GPU is a factory overclocked GTX 570. From benchmarks, it seemed about the same as a 580, the price allows me to slap on another one and do SLI later if I feel like it. Both are real nice options though.

    i did mention in my op that i have two ssd totalling 124gb. yes it really is great. my mobo has a system that uses the ssds as a cache- so my whole 1TB hard drive works at speeds close to the ssd speed. the processor is overclocked to 4.0 ghz- i have a custom heatsink. the gtx 580 is a goddamned beast. i have the directors cut version- so it's made from more resilient material- makes for better overclock capabilities in the future. this build can run dtarcraft 2 on full graphics 60fps. and also crysis 2 full graphics 60fps

    I don't clock my stuff all that much. I prefer my computer to be nice and silent, as it's not like games actually tax a state of the art computer (due to consoles holding back development). Though the Fractal R3 I put it in helps a lot with that, so I could probably clock a bit more than I do.

    But you only get 60 fps? Surely you can get more than that. Are you forcing vsync or something? I rarely drop below 100 in SC2.

    the processor cooler is actually rediculously quiet. only spent about 50 dollars on it. yeah forced vsynch- the graphics card can get loud so i thought there wouldn't be much point. you can't actuall tell the difference over 60fps anyway I think. if you like, you can pass me your sc2 username and friend code- we can perhaps play some games

    I've got this same processor in my recent build. I've been pretty content with it! I haven't thrown anything at it that it couldn't handle. The biggy was virtualization which seems to never put any strain on the system. At this time, I have no reason to overclock either. And I've got an SSD in mine too Blazing fast! Boot time for my system is just under 10(damn gigabyte mobo splash takes a few seconds) seconds from power on to desktop (which works instantly). This isn't an exaggeration haha.

    you should try out Tribes Ascend. It's a free to play extremely fast paced multiplayer fps. it's exp unlock based with the ability to buy (with real money) a limited amount of things to fasten the process of unlocking.

    I did think about doing so, but i had already tried Amd and ati before when building a friends pc, and wanted to look at the other end of the spectrum. I can honestly say that i found that not only does intel and nvidia seem to have a better output, it also gave me less problems.

    For CPUs, that's just not true. AND has nothing that approaches Intel's higher end CPUs.

    Considering he is going to buy an i5 , a CPU form the phantom series from AMD would do the same job and be a lot cheaper... Sure , the intel's high end CPU's are better , but an i5 isnt exactly high end. So while in the high end Intel and Nvidia may have a lot more to offer , in the mid section of the market AMD and ATI can offer the same or even better at a lower price.

    The truth is i built this computer 2 years ago:
    -ASUSTeK Computer INC. M4A785TD-V EVO (AM3)-Motherboard
    -250 Gb Sata Hard Drive
    -2Gb DDR3 RAM
    -AMD Phenom II X2 550
    -ATI 5700 series
    -A bunch of other stuff like a power dource , a new tower and dvd drive.

    For this machine i payed 550 euros , and the only real problem i have with it is that 2gb just doesnt cut it anymore. Graphics wise and CPU wise , i can still run everything at max settings.

    Quantify "everything". Console ports are easy to get running on max, sure. I can do that on my laptop.

    Stuff like Crysis, I remain skeptical. Even top line cards from this years are struggling with max settings on that game. Let alone stuff that is 2 years old.

    Im a pretty avid gamer , so when i say everything i really do mean everything. Tough i didnt have the chance of playing crysis 1 on this computer , i played it on my old one on low settings. In this one i play anything from the total war series at max settings , just cause 2 , the asassins creed series ,the COWADOODY series(bleh) ,crysis 2 , CIV 5 , Mount and Blade , Deus Ex , Syndicate , Metro , Stalker , etc. All at max settings, and , if possible in DX11 mode.
    Tough while i managed to play Shogun 2 with no real FPS drops ,i lowered its graphics so i had shorter loading times.
    The only games so far i haven been able to play were Mount and Blade:Warband mods , and those were an issue of lack of RAM...

    Let's stick to the topic. What games he's playing and what game company's marketing strategies are has nothing to do with the machine in the OP.

    I did actually post a picture with all the games i've got aswell, hoping others would do similar, so we could discuss similar games.

    I see you like going fast... I too like going fast.

    That and Total War games... Didnt really like Shogun 2 tough. Too simplified. My favorite is Medieval 2

    Haha you're referring to tribes ascend right? Indeed I do! Hit me up with your username, we should play sometime

    Oh yes I got bored of shogun 2 as well. I think the whole style of that game just isn't for me; I much prefer rts where you build units- so I'm a big fan of Starcraft, @Eris do you play much starcraft 2?

    Adding you now. I'm in london, so i don't think the ping would be too bad. Also..... is it me, or did a bunch of our discussion posts just get deleted from this thread?
