More about gaming build compatibility
  1. I really see nothing wrong with this build. best components for the price. It will run pretty much every game on high-ultra settings on the strong 50-60+ fps.
    And yeah this is the right thread :P
  2. Will it run them at 1080p?
  3. Yes it will :)
  4. Best answer
    Im gonna post my gaming opinion there :)
    First of all your build is pretty decent and will run smoothly most of the games. Although,
    many will disagree about the single channel ram memory , but the speed differences are insignificant gaming-wise.
    Also I really feel that i should tell you that , although it's clearly a personal opinion. I think that 250GB HDD is not enough. Games are getting bigger and bigger and an HDD will start to fall behind in speed after you have occupied more than the 50% of their maximum capacity (~125 GB in your build ) . And as a gamer sometimes I feel an urge to play a game that I have already played/finished in the past for different reasons so I tend to keep like 6-7 games installed on my PC. So for me 500GB-1TB would me a lot better. But you might not be like me :D .
    The end this post I would say that a 750W PSU is kinda overkill . You might want to look for a 650W one. Best brands in my opinion are XFX,Seasonic, Corsair but the one you have chosen is also very good.
  5. Yeah if you look around you can pick up a 1TB HDD for around the same amount you are paying for that one. But i would stay with the same psu because it will leave room for upgrades and your getting it for not so bad of a price.

    Actually i was going to get the 1tb lol but i think that the 750w is needed because im looking to upgrade later.
    And what about the memory? Whats the difference between single channel and dual channal?

    Do you think that the ssd is worth it? Or should i pop another stick of ram in it?
  8. Single channel of 8GB is 1x8GB ram memory and dual channel is 2x4GB ram memories. But there is not need to worry about that , really... The differences might be less than 1% and not noticable. So got with whatever you like or whatever your budget allows.
    Also about the upgrade you say .. unless you want to run like a setup with multiple monitors and GPUs then 650w is perfectly fine for good gaming . But I cannot disagree than 750 w gives more future room for upgardes and its at a very good price also. Now if 650w really makes you feel ''unsafe'' then do whatever your heart desires :D
  9. The ssd is really worth it. You install your OS there and it makes your PC boot and run really fast compared to an HDD. I suggest you buy both (SSD, HDD) and have your OS and some programms that you use frequently at your SSD , but if you want to have 2-3 games also there (which will make them to boot and run faster ) you need a bigger one like 120-256GB . The gameplay won't change if you either have them on SSD or HDD ( ie FPS ) they would just start faster . The HDD will be for your other files : music , movies , projects or even games if you choose that a fast boot at games is not that essential.
