700$ build

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Before any one asks its 700 usd dollars.

 

So i posted a thread yesterday on a 600 dollar build, but now it seems like I will have enough for 700 dollar build.

 

I would love to see to some pc builds with variations so i can choose the best one that suits me, for right now im still considering amd or intel, r9 or gtx, etc.

 

Im going to use the pc mostly for gaming but as well as editing alot.

 

any suggestions would be great, tnx.

Maybe get 8GB of RAM instead and then get an R9 280 or 280X?


I don't always use Vessel.... but when I do, it's because of Scrapyard Wars.

It can be improved, let me see what I can do about that :)

This one retains 16 GB of RAM, but has a 280.

The 8350 stock cooler sounds like a jet engine, and after getting an after-market cooler for it, it's the same price as an i5. More than 8GB of ram isn't needed for gaming quite yet, and it can always be added in the future if needed. I believe the XFX GPU's can get quite loud under load from reviews I've seen. I don't know much about the PSU, so I won't complain about that, but the case could be cheaper to allow other parts to be improved. (If it was a more high-end system, the S340 would be a pretty good case.)

I like it but the motherboard could be a cheaper H81M P33. The drive would be better as WD Blue as it'd have less failure rates. I'd change that CPU to a 4570 as it's almost the same price. I'd rather max the budget a bit more for a PSU that would be more balanced for the build.

USB 3.0

The case has 2.0 ports. It just was a warning that its 3.0 ports won't be usable as the motherboard has 2.0 ports exclusively.

The case is pretty good especially with how much space it has, but I've heard that for $60 it's not the best quality in the world. Something like an S340 at that price-point would be better. PSU's a bit overpriced. May as well get something along the lines of a GS unit at that price at it's not far behind a G2 unit. No need for an after-market cooler either seeing the locked CPU with the locked motherboard. Not to mention that's pretty over-budget. I like the build though other than that.

Thanks for the feedback lol. I would have chosen the HAF 912, but since the motherboard has USB 3.0 headers, I wanted the case to have USB 3.0 as well. I went with more than 8 GB of RAM as sometimes I use 8-10 GB of memory, so I just wanted to "future proof" the rig a bit.

I see your point. Though you can always add more ram if you need it and just buy single 8GB sticks to save slots.

I did click the link, and I did check before trying to correct you. I'm confused. I meant that it had 3.0 ports but it also had 2.0 ports. No, the 3.0 ports won't be usable since the motherboard I suggested doesn't have any, but I never said they're not there.

...

 

So let me get this straight...  I posted a build with a motherboard that has a USB 3.0 header coupled with a case that supports USB 3.0 on the front panel. 

 

You proceed to recommend a change (on my build) to a "cheaper" motherboard.  I draw your attention to the fact that the motherboard I had picked had USB 3.0... the one you recommend does not. 

 

Then you try to tell me that the case does not have a front panel USB 3.0, but it really does.

 

I correct you regarding the case.

 

Then you post this:

WTF does that mean?

 

 

It is okay to be wrong, really.  :)

Isn't the best looking and has no ssd but has a z97 board for future upgrades to the cpu and also has sli support with a video card that will rock 1080p and also don't forget that at least an ssd could be added and that there are no bad components

What are you telling me for?

 

You took away the GTX 970, put in a GTX 960 and added a board that supports SLI... while pounding on an extra $50 to the budget... not a great move, sorry.

I meant the 3.0 ports will be of no use because the board I recommended has 2.0 and no 3.0. I never said it has none. Another board will be fine with the 3.0 ports if it has them. The P33 board is a great board. It's not cheap. Second of all, when did I say the case has no 3.0 port? I never said that at all. You don't need a board with 3.0 if the case

has 2.0 ports is what I was saying. (As long as the board has 2.0 ports as well.) I was trying to get the point across that you don't need 3.0 ports on the board as the case has 2.0 ports, so a board with 2.0 ports is fine. I didn't word it correctly and I apologize for that.

What are you telling me for?

You took away the GTX 970, put in a GTX 960 and added a board that supports SLI... while pounding on an extra $50 to the budget... not a great move, sorry.

well you see your build is called a bottleneck because of the older architecture cpu which a person should never buy it also has a case that sucks because it has ok airflow, Flimsy design and almost no fans and a 970 that almost isn't worth buying since it is a low tier card since the g1 exists also the cpu I had was a step up since it ran faster and finally your gpu price doesn't exist anymore so suck on being wrong

Oh yeh and also for only ten dollars more in rebates but still in his budget he can have an i5 he can overclock with a board he can overclock on with a balanced gpu a terrabyte of storage and still a good psu and a trusted case with the only upgrades needed being an ssd and a cheap cpu cooler
