  1. Nope. I'll make a better build.
  2. If this is for gaming, you can do considerably better for the money.
  3. the build is allready made , so i wonder if its worth the 1.2k ?
  4. No definitely not. That is a huge wrong move for a gaming build for the money.
  5. If gaming is your purpose, i'd get something like this. However i'm not sure what the price for these parts would be in norway.

  6. @sunder25 that would be over 15000NOK (2,502.81 USD) so its kinda expensive to get these parts here in norway even if i order them from other country taxes would reach the same amount.
  7. But anyway is this build ok for gaming , would it run atleast BF4 on max or something ?
  8. Best answer
    It will max BF4 bit this is ALL WRONG for a gaming build. WAY too much CPU that is pointless and the money could be WAY better spent on a better GPU.

    You could max BF4 for way less money.
  9. Yes, it should work fine, however, you overspent in some areas, mainly you'd need something like a 4670k and a better graphics card.
  10. Gaming rig is gpu dependent, you dumped more into cpu. Plus haswell at same price offers a small performance boost. Never buy a wd green, they spin at 5400 rpm, data storage or not its half the speed. Def could've done better than a 680, and psu seems a bit overkill.

    But that said, not the way I would've spent 1.2k, but it still is a good system.

  12. I'am from Norway myself, and you should defiently buy this graphic card. Perfoms almost as good as a reference 780 ti, and 400 dollars cheaper! Change your ram to 8 or 16, cuz 32 is overkill! Use the money on the graphic card I just wrote :). And I would changed the CPU to a i5 4620k or an AMD FX 8320/50
  13. like i said the build is allready completed so i have no chances of changing any component.
  14. Well, I would not buy it. It is a monumental waste of money.

    This computer is set up as a rendering and encoding workstation, not a gaming computer.

    The 32gb RAM is stupid and will be out of date before games can even use half of it.

    The CPU too will be antiquated before you can use it to its full potential.

    The GPu, while powerful, is already almost 2 years old and a generation old.
  15. tiny, you know how it feels when you buy a new rig?
    When you're excited about your new pc?
    Well you just killed that for OP:P
  16. I'm not killing anything for anyone. Just being a realist and letting OP know that it is a waste of money and a MUCH MUCH better PREBUILT could have been had for the money. But, he said he already knows this.
  17. tiny what you wrote just made me think that this pc is worthless, but you know its kinda hard for me to go into a brand new powerfull pc build straitgh from a weak laptop. Here in norway Pc Components are very expensive and this build is like a miracle here is norway and its really cheap...
  18. You are fine op. If you can try selling half your ram and upgrading your graphics card, until you do that you'll be able to play any game at high settings. Tiny didn't mean it.
  19. I never meant to make you feel like the system is worthless. It is a good system, it is just not set up as a gaming build. It will game perfectly well, the parts are just unbalanced for gaming. That is all. You will definitely be happy with it.

    I agree with selling half the RAM for sure. The CPU/RAM is really where the overkill and waste of money comments come from.
