    Computer Upgrade/almost rebuilding

    I haven't heard of them ever, its just what someone recommended me so i can definitely switch it out for something more known or better.

    That makes sense, i had overclocking in mind so i looked at the radiators right away basically, with the air coolers can you still overclock a decent amount with them?

    I thought the performance between the 9700k and the 9600k isnt that different in games? im not doing any workloads at all on my computer and if i could overclock the I5 that would save some money there.

    gotcha that makes sense, i bought ssd a while back cause it was on a super good sale on amazon, didn't really look into ratings and whatnot, ill see if i can fit a better one into the list
  5. Hey everyone! I tried looking for help on the buildapc subreddit and their discord but didn't get any help there so im coming here! Recently been playing VR games and Apex Legends and id love to boost my performance up a lot buy upgrading the PC i have currently. My goal for this PC though is definitely games high/max settings 1080P @ 120HZ, i have peripherals and all that good stuff so that inst a problem. Gaming, VR Gaming and possibly streaming as well. RGB would be neat if the case has a window, the case i currently doesnt have one so i didnt even think about RGB. if overclocking the CPU isnt any hassle id love to really get as much performance out of what im buying as possible. -Current Specs- I7-4770k cpu evga gtx 970 Seasonic 660w platinum psu 16g DDR3 ram @ 1600MHz 120g ssd 2 TB hard drive. air cooled. and really thats about it, the cpu isnt overclocked, the MoBo is one of the cheapest ASRock mobos i could find when i built it and that was about 5 years ago or so. I put together two lists that i think are what i want to be shooting for.

  6. ah okay. Also, is a CPU cooler really necessary?
  7. Hmmm.. i have an ASRock mobo now but all the stuff you get with it is kind of annoying. Does Gigabyte have a ton of programs that come with it when you install the drivers?
  8. Is there a better Mobo that is cheaper than the G1 Sniper you linked Megazero? I want the green but if there is a way better mobo that doesnt have green that is a little bit cheaper then ill take a look at that one too.
  9. I already had the I7 before i even planned to do SLI so im not going to buy another one. They have G1 Sniper Mobo's on Newegg that are green.
  10. I need to buy a new case | Mobo | PSU for my SLI GTX 970 build. I already have hard drives, memory and my CPU ( I7-4770K) that i will be using in the new build. I have razer peripherals so i want to go for more of a green looks inside my computer. So what i was thinking Case: Either the H440 Green and Black edition OR the H440 Razer edition. I really love cases with big windows that you can see inside. Mobo: A Gigabyte G1 Sniper, dont know which one.... A green Mobo is not needed but if there is a better mobo then i will most likely get that. PSU: Don't know yet. Any suggestions?
