More about 1200 1500 dollar build
  1. That's 700 $?

    It's rubbish. That's what I think.

    - Xeon CPU? Is this for work?

    - Only 1 stick of RAM? No dual-channel even?

    - No Full tower?

    - B85 Chipset?

    What's this computer for?
  2. get something like this for heaven sake lol

    now here a true beast
  3. This is for recording gameplay, rendering gamplay, rendering other videos, video editing, special effects, and playing games on mid to high settings while my videos are rendering in the background. (playing bf4 at max right now and playing future games at mid to very high settings). Do you guys like this build better then? http://pcpartpicker.com/p/2EUBJ
  4. (i'm also thinking about getting this cpu instead. Intel
    Core i7-860S)
  5. Yes, massively better.

    Except that godawful case.

    What case would you recommend? And what about the cpu i'm thinking of getting instead of the k?
  7. I would highly recommend a 700w+ psu for i7 4770k + gtx 780
    why get i7 860s really old cpu?? O_O
    the case is good
    zalman z11 plus is awesome too
    aercool vs-92 white window
    aerocool x1 white black
    aerocool x3 white gs max as well
    corsair 200r / 400r
    btw z87 fatality is an upgraded version of extreme 4 actually (they added killer lan and audio boost as extra (same as msi z87 g45 owns))
    evga super nova are awesome lol
  8. don't forget you need a cpu cooler.
    a thermalright hr-02 macho / scythe muggen 4 / thermalright warrior 120 would really help with temps given what you intend to use pc for
  9. A Cooler Master case, like the HAF X or an NZXT Phantom case for example.

    Half X is a bit out of my price range. (seeing as it's 200 dollars). Do you recommend any other cooler masters for less?

    p.s. not looking for how cool it looks. Just for one that works. Plus i don't want someone thinking that my computer is really good because i'm going to a dorm soon and i have paranoid thoughts of my roomate doing shit to my computer while i'm not there. If there's a really good cheap case that looks bland. I'll take it.
  11. The Fractal Arc Midi R2 is a really good case I'm using one.
    Temps are just about as good as my old Antec 902.
  12. Nevermind then.
  13. Best answer
    aerocool and corsair ain't known for good looks but rather for good air flow, material and durability.
    go for msi snow white case then. looks horrible but good statwise.
