    That will drive most games at 1440p. It's one of the more powerful graphics cards that money can buy.
  6. how about for speed, on a basic game like minecraft could you estimate how much fps you would get

  8. what is the difference between yours and his
  9. - Better motherboard
    - Better GPU
    - Better PSU
    - Better case which has a microATX form factor
    - 1TB HDD vs 256GB SSD

    Damric, no offense intended.
  10. His is more power efficient and newer model card. The GTX 970s are fast and they don't need as much power. Mine is good too and has an SSD for FAST level loading. You could change either build around and either would be good.

    none taken but I would rather have a Golden Green with a strng single rail than the Seasonic with eww two 24A rails :P

    I own that H97 Pro you listed. It's not bad, but not spectacular.
  12. By better I meant it was fully modular ;)
  13. thank you all for your help, i have one more question tho, i was looking at prebuilt computers cause i didnt know if it was worth the effort of building one?


    would i save money from buying this one, or the one that razerz showed me

  14. Either way, $900 is a pretty sweet spot for a budget. Lot's of performance and choices.

    Oh NO don't get that cyberpower. Build something yourself.
  16. Lol, a $900 "gaming" computer and they pair an i7 with a weak R7 250, to say the least. Stay away from prebuilts, and save money by building your own.
  17. Can't really go wrong with either build suggested. RazerZ's will give you a bit more oomph, but personally I'd switch out the case to a 230t, because I like the look of it.
  18. thank you both!
  19. No problem... should have mentioned you're from Canada since prices are different there and are more expensive compared to the US.
