Solved Is This Computer Build any good? Tags: Computers Build Systems Last response: May 24, 2014 5:12 PM in Systems Share overkill19 May 23, 2014 12:03:23 PM I was poking around for a build sitte and i came across this. I hear building pc's is cheaper and better quality. I wanted to know if this is any good for games like black ops 2, minecraft, ghosts, mw3, and (if possible battlefield 4) Link to my build. tell me if anything can be improved. http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/user/sierraone19/saved/4AZ1 More about : computer build good Reply to overkill19 tiny voices May 23, 2014 12:11:57 PM A few things to note. The GPU is a bit weak for an i5 like that. You would be better off getting an i5 4430, B85 motherboard and a better GPU. THis is GREATLY improve gaming performance. Also, get 2x4gb RAM not a single stick. Reply to tiny voices m 0 l shoomee May 23, 2014 12:12:23 PM For overclocking I like this MOBO: http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/part/asrock-motherboard-z87e...

Get the answer tiny voices May 23, 2014 12:18:56 PM The exchange rate is different. Prices really aren't any different. The 750TI is WORSE than the 7870 OP is looking at. Not recommended. That motherboard you linked is a good option for less than OP's original option. Still, he should be getting a locked i5 and a non-overclocking board and a better GPU.

Reply to overkill19 m 0 l tiny voices May 23, 2014 2:33:57 PM Get the 2gb one if you are only playing at 1080p. Reply to tiny voices m 0 l overkill19 May 23, 2014 8:34:41 PM i want the 4gb one so i can get more fps Reply to overkill19 m 0 l tiny voices May 23, 2014 8:35:38 PM Well, you won't get more FPS with it. Sorry, that isn't really how it works.

I am going to overclock. http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/user/sierraone19/saved/4AZ1 Reply to overkill19 m 0 l tiny voices May 24, 2014 8:48:32 AM Get a Z97 motherboard. Get 1.5v RAM Get a better PSU. 550w XFX is what I would recommend.

Reply to tiny voices Share overkill19 May 24, 2014 1:42:11 PM Just a few edits. How does this look? I'm trying to get as much parts from 1 place as I can. http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/user/sierraone19/saved/4N3g Reply to overkill19 m 0 l tiny voices May 24, 2014 4:56:09 PM Looks fine. I would recommend a non-reference style GPU though for the 290.
