More about good 800 budget build
  1. That's a great overall build :) I have the HIVE 550w, and it's pretty good. Doesn't get loud at all :) Should get you Ultra/Max in everything at 1080p :)
  2. Great build. My $800 build is an FX-6300 and an r9 270x
  3. more performance all the way around.

    Swapping a 280x for a 770 and adding 2133 ram would be worse than having 1600 ram and a GTX 770( no offense, just my critique)
  5. ive yet to see a gk104 beat the tahiti clock for clock... and tahiti overclocks better, capable of 1.6ghz or higher under water, held all the world records for their generation. plus it nets him a faster ram and a faster cpu. not to mention when titanfall gets its mantle patch it will be noticably faster than the 770.

    It's going to be hot af when he overclocks the CPU with a stock fan and since it's AMD it's going to even add more heat. The new drivers in nvidia that are still in beta are suggesting that it will beat the mantle, it should be released soon since it's been a beta for a month or 2. The mantle is also very unstable and causes a lot of problems.

    Well I'm not to sure about that. I believe it can be OC'd to higher levels with watercooling and beat the 770 but that is probably out of this price budget. With an OC alone it would draw more power to get up to the same level as a 770, so I figured why not just go with a 770. 2133 vs 1600 ram gaming there's maybe .4 fps difference.
  8. i personally didnt have any heat problems with my old twin frozr 7970, 1200mhz oc and would get to 75c in gaming, but didnt bother my 2500k@4.5ghz. but we all know the 680/770/7970ghz/280x are all the same speed in games and any gamer is going to be hard pressed to tell any difference in any game, except a few fps. i personally would like to have a slightly faster cpu, much faster ram(even if it doesn't make a difference, and a 2gb 770<280x<4gb 770.... though i believe the 4gb 770s price currently is retarded when you can get an r9-290 for a few bucks more, it should be $300 for 770s and $340 for 4gb models. if that were the case then the op could just easily choose his/her brand and already had a faster cpu.

    if he wants to go 770....

    $8.51 for more performance. the ram is only $4 more and its ripjaws x series, not budget ares series. i would try to get cas 9 or 8 or maybe even 7 off 1866 speeds on those sticks though instead of cas 11 2133

    i dont plan on overclocking i dont care about that bit more performance thats hardly noticeable. is the 4670 vs 4570 worth it for the varely better performance? and i was thinking about the r9 280 but its not rated as high and performance is a tad lower so for future proofing wouldnt i be better of with he 770 in the longrun?
  10. i am keeping an open mind about this

    In the build you posted you have 2133 ram yet the motherboard supports only up to 1600. the 2133 would be underclocked to 1600 and it would be a waste of money.

    i know you were talking about the ram he posted not mine but is the ram you last posted better than what i have originally?

    $8.51 for more performance. the ram is only $4 more and its ripjaws x series, not budget ares series. i would try to get cas 9 or 8 or maybe even 7 off 1866 speeds on those sticks though instead of cas 11 2133


    Here's what I would go with:

    In the build you posted you have 2133 ram yet the motherboard supports only up to 1600. the 2133 would be underclocked to 1600 and it would be a waste of money.



    i know you were talking about the ram he posted not mine but is the ram you last posted better than what i have originally?


    It will function the exact same and costs $3 less.


    thanks for all your help homie! really helped me in making my decision.



    Anytime :)
