  2. EVGA G2 because it's the only PSU I've ever had.
  3. I need to essentially interview a practicing engineer for a paper I have been asked to write for one of my classes for school. Would any of you folks on LTT like to volunteer? I know there are some engineers out there in the community. I've got about 15-20 pretty simple questions I just need to ask. I'll need your name and company you work for (since it isn't really acceptable to write a college paper using an internet username as my interviewee and mystery company), so if you aren't comfortable giving that then I suppose you know not to volunteer. Just let me know if you would be up to it and I'll drop my questions into your messages sometime today when I get back on. An aerospace engineer would be preferred since that's what I'm studying to be, but anyone who is willing to help is more than welcome! Thanks.
  4. Okay. Change in plans. Turns out the 390 is no longer on sale, so I'm having him go with a 970 as well as the PSU you recommended. Think it looks good?

  5. Power draw is 425. I suppose in any case 550W will be enough.
  6. I believe the Sapphire is a bit more expensive, as the PowerColor is on sale by like 30 bucks and I never hear particularly bad things about the brand. I could be wrong though. Regarding the PSU, I was thinking the same thing but a 550W EVGA GS is only $5 less. Figured I'd go for the higher wattage. Do ya think it would be wise to go with 550 anyways?
  7. After reading around on the internet this seems to be the case. I'll let him know. Thanks for the input.
  8. Just to clarify, are you talking about the 6500 or 6400? My lists that I have here consist of the 6400 because it's cheaper. How does that compare to the 4460? I could recommend him the 6500 seeing as how it's only 15 bucks more, but I don't know how open he is to going nearly $50 over budget (probably more once shipping and taxes come into play). Hence why I was mainly comparing the 6400 and 4460.
  9. Helping my buddy build a computer. The most intensive thing he'll be doing on it is gaming. His initial goal was to stay under $600, but now it's more likely staying as close as possible to $700. After a bit of alteration, I think I've got a fairly good build down. Would anyone make some last minute alterations before I tell him he's good to start purchasing?

This originally started as a 6400 vs 4460 thread and evolved into something else. Rather than making another topic I'm just editing my OP. Thanks folks.
  10. Wow. I'll definitely have to let my buddy thats shooting for a $600 computer know about this.
  11. Last time I used it Pandora didn't allow you to play individual songs, unlike Spotify. Maybe this has changed though?
  12. I'm not thinking so unfortunately. He still needs a case as well.
  13. That's not too bad actually. I tried to do the exact same thing before posting this and couldn't get it under 650. Thanks.
  14. My buddy wants me to pick him out some parts. He wants to do 1080p gaming on high as much as possible with 60fps. He knows he'll have to bump down settings sometimes but he just wants the best thing possible for gaming essentially. He won't be overclocking anything at all, so there's that. This is what I have so far.

He has his own peripherals already. If anyone has anything they'd change or improve upon (or a different build entirely let me know). I have to seriously stress though that he really doesn't wanna spend $700, so the lower the better. $650 is probably his ideal maximum.
