Dumping the Xbox and joining the master race!

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So I just won an auction on a good GTX 1070 on ebay so I guess its time to build a computer.

My budget is around $800, and I already own the storage, case, and now PSU/GPU. I'm located in Tennessee so sadly no local electronics places. I use a really sub-par monitor right now but I'll be gaming on a 4K TV, mostly racing games and emulators. I will be upgrading my monitor after the build is done and proven. Any recommendations? 

 


Yeah... sorry I own a Macbook guys... It was cheep, I swear!

That looks like a nice build! I'm not really sure what I could recommend other than that the water cooler is not necessary as there are great small form factor Air Coolers.

Other than that it looks good!

Thanks! I plan on doing a minor overclock to the i5 and the Elite 130 is really meant for water cooling. I know I could probably get a cheap ATX case and a larger motherboard but I have had the case for going on 3 years (still NIB) and I just like the form factor.

Yeah welcome to the PC master race! (Not trying to hate on consoles as I play on them)

Well I'm so happy everything seems good, we shall see how the build goes once I get everything but I'm stoked.

I think about the cooler that for 120mm AIO the H80i is better than the H60, but I still prefer air cooler than AIO.

 

Also don't dump the XBox completely, still can use the controller on the PC, just dump the machine. 😉

Is the H80i even gonna fit in the case? If I can fit 2 fans I'll do push-pull on the H60 but I don't think the H80i with both fans would fit, one probably would. And yep I've already got the wireless adapter for the Xbox controllers.
