    a far better performance beast than that overpriced PC. about the the only games it'll lose against that CPUSolution build is StarCraft II & maybe Crysis 3.

    that extra money you may have? save it for a future overhaul if you can help it.
  4. I can say on average, it's usually around 20% you save by building on your own vs a prebuilt. For under $1000 anyways and just speaking in general. You can build macpros for 40% the price :P
  5. This is how much the build he posted is in pcpartpicker, and if I may add it is really bad for that price.
  6. Yep and Hazle's build is better for gaming for $1000 less
  7. Processor is overkill, might as well swap that with something low like an I5 and get a r9 295x2 even xD xD? Is that possible with a 3K build?

    Well i would like more ram as thats helpful for rendering out videos in sony vegas and things like that
  9. 3K build you could easily go 4K res with that
  10. Well RAM is very cheap anyway
  11. by all means, add more RAM if you need it. 2x8GB DDR3-1866 sounds good for a start. not at all sure if rendering will benefit largely from a quad channel build over dual channel.

    you may want to up that CPU to an i7 for rendering purposes since we all assumed this was purely a gaming PC.
  12. A $1500 PC is more than enough to max out all games on 1080p as of now :)
