  1. I'm trying to build a gaming pc for a friend and it has to be under $800. His original plan was a gaming pc around $700-$800 and preferably 1080p. After an hour or so, I came up with this: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/f4JWzy He prefers to buy stuffs on amazon and newegg CPU : AMD FX-6300 3.5GHz 6-Core Processor Mobo: Biostar TA970 ATX AM3+ Motherboard Storage: Seagate 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Hybrid Internal Hard Drive (hybrid) GPU: EVGA GeForce GTX 760 2GB Superclocked ACX Video Card Case: NZXT Source 210 (Black) ATX Mid Tower Case PSU: Corsair Builder 500W 80+ Bronze Certified ATX Power Supply Optical Drive: Asus DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS DVD/CD Writer Monitor: BenQ GW2255 60Hz 21.5" Monitor Total: $783.67 Any tips and suggestions would be much appreciated. -Thank you for your time.
  2. Finally finished my first pc build so I decided to try out overclocking. CPU: i5 3570k Mobo: ASRock Z77 Extreme 4 CPU cooler: Water 2.0 Performer I got the 3570k to 4.6Ghz with (1.2V CPU-Z and 1.241 CPUID HWMonitor), and temperature around 60°C with ambient around 17°C after 12hrs of Prime 95 testing. I know the temperature is alright but I am not too sure about the voltage. What is the recommended max voltage for the i5 3570k? -Thank you for your time.
  3. EVERYTHING!!! sold out so quick.... DAMN
  4. Would push/pull config make the 212 Evo a little more quiet? If so, what a good fan to add with it?
  5. I looking forward to overclock my i5 3570k so I need a decent CPU cooler. I was planing on buying the 212 EVO but I got some extra cash over Thanksgiving so I got interested in the NH-D14 (it is on sale for around ~$65). I saw Linus review video and the thing is huge so I'm not too sure if the thing will even fit into my case. I have a NZXT 210 case, ASRock Extreme 4 mobo, and G.Skill Sniper RAM. I not too worry about being able to close the side panel but the ram clearance that worry me. Or maybe the NH-D14 is a little overkill for an i5 3570k OC . Recommendations, tips, or helps would be appreciated. -Thank you for your time.
  6. I'm planing on build a budget pc for my brother. Right now I'm not too sure of what to get r9 270x or 7870? R9 270x - ~$199.99 and it comes with BF4 7870 - ~$199.99 --> ~$149.99 with $50 off or mail and rebate From what I know the r9 270x and 7870 are about the same performance. I'm currently leaning toward R9 270x because it is about the same price or a little better with BF4 included and it has mantle supported (which I really hoping would be something amazing) but several people said the card is not really that worth it. -Thank you for your time.
  7. I would like to have another monitor so I can multi-task.
  8. Thanks to JoeyDM recommendation I was able to come up with this. If you got any tips or want to help with the build "http://linustechtips.com/main/topic/80448-gaming-build-1000/" Several motherboards I have look at are , MSI 970A-GA43, Asus M5A97 R2.0, Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UDA3, Asus M599FX Pro R2.0, and ASRock 990FX Extreme4. Any recommendation on which one should I pick or is there a better one? -Thank you for your time.
