  1. I'm deciding on a PC for a friend who does coding and modding for Xbox and PS3. Is Console Coding/Modding GPU bound because he's on tight budget so I need to decide on getting a good CPU but crappy GPU/iGPU or a mid-tier CPU and okay GPU
  2. My Realtek HD audio manager prompts to tell me what device was plugged in, if I pick headphones, I can hear audio perfectly fine but microphone doesn't register on my PC what so ever
  3. My PC won't enable me to hear audio and speak through the microphone at the same time when plugged into the audio port and I don't know how to fix
  4. Yeah I worded that badly, naturally CPU/GPUs with higher TDP naturally consume more power as they are hotter but you can't necessarily judge the power consumption from the TDP eg. 390 only consumes 60W more than 970 under load
  5. You're making the general confusion. TDP has zero correlation with wattage or power consumption, it's rather a measure of cooling and how much heat it can output. But low TDP would still be nice for a 24/7 machine
  6. If you can't afford a real case don't bother making your own unless you know what you're doing. Just setup an open bench
  7. Just get 5 140mm and your done, place two at front, one at back and two up top
  8. GPU would always generally have bigger impact on gaming and since i5 is little far off the i7 in gaming besides HT, the i5/970 would be better
  9. More pixels less CPU dependant more GPU dependant, i3 wouldn't bottleneck a top end GPU at 4K
  10. Won't bottleneck anything unless it's 3 980Ti, 1440p is less CPU dependant
  11. With your budget you might as well opt for a 390X and I changed PSU PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant CPU: Intel Core i5-4690K 3.5GHz Quad-Core Processor ($223.99 @ SuperBiiz) CPU Cooler: be quiet! PURE ROCK 51.4 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler ($34.90 @ Newegg) Motherboard: ASRock Z97 PRO3 ATX LGA1150 Motherboard ($97.99 @ SuperBiiz) Memory: Crucial Ballistix Sport XT 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($27.99 @ Newegg) Storage: Silicon Power S60 120GB 2.5" Solid State Drive ($39.99 @ Newegg) Storage: Seagate Barracuda 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($
  12. less multitasking, can't open as many programs at once, some games utilize more cores where a i3 may lack and less offload on the CPU usage, less Intel features this is generally speaking though, some specific CPU tasks that isn't general usage benefit a lot more from using an i5 such as rendering or editing
  13. Tried buying something from it? Overcharge on tax and shipping
  14. I would upgrade since you don't really have a good quality PSU atm but there's not exactly any harm in going overkill on wattage
  15. Even 650W would be adequate so I would go for 750W
  16. What is this build for? Honestly doesn't even look like it's worth having tbh
  17. I wouldn't get OEMs and the stock cooler might work
  18. Not any fps difference worth the upgrade. DX12 still isn't a factor yet so I wouldn't worry
