Red and Black aesthetically pleasing budget build. (~$550)

DunePilot

Built a CAD machine for the pops for Christmas, ram and cooler could be better but I pulled them out of one of my old machines. Other that it's pretty nice. If we come across a cheap 4790k in the next year or two then I will probably pick one up for him. He usually keeps a computer for 10 years. This is overkill for his needs but I wanted to get him something that not only was very functional and would exceed his needs but would also look good on the desk of a 62 year old man.

I'd include an AMD GPU but I don't believe any current AMD CPU is really worth it- so it won't be a full AMD build.

 

EDIT: Once Zen rolls around I'll check it out- probably buy one to test, but till then not worth it.

You should do some kinda "Build video" like those ones linus does where he does a build sponsored by Intel or something

Thanks, yeah Gigabyte stuff is great. It and Asus are prob my two fav. I have a good 4.5 OC out of it but only run 4.2 because the H50 cooler I have is a reused one that was the first generation (about 5 years old or so) and they don't actually cool all that great. I recorded it with a Canon Rebel T4i with a spare battery and spare memory card and edited in Adobe Premiere Elements 13. I do like AMD, but my the last AMD system I built was back when Half Life 2 came out, that should give my age away a little bit lol. A 280X would probably have been a little bit more bang for the buck GPU wise but I opted for something easy for the pops to keep updated since I know Nvidia are excellent with driver support and its already overkill for his graphical needs anyways. 

 

Thanks for the comments.

I'd love to, I'd like to get into contact with a rep at Gigabyte, Corsair, or Intel and work with them. They make great products and I'd love to collaborate with them.
