  4. I can't believe this build i5 and a 1070 amazing
  5. u welcome :)
  6. That case I could change and lower the watts on the psu and it will be fine
  7. The case was just to fit the aprrox. budget. Go with a better want if you dont have budget issue.
    The PSU is at the moment the least expensive well rated unit in that pcpp list for USA that i could find. The wattage is not an overkill and should be fine. You can downgrade to a lower wattage if you want but it might cost you more unless you can find some deals.
    Adhere to this for a rough idea of quality units... http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/id-2547993/psu-tier-list.html
  8. I have a build that i scraped the ssd and used a wd black could maybe go with a 2tb but not sure if an ssd and hdd are cheaper
  9. SSD are a must these days for faster load times and overall OS operations. Not too much of a difference in secondary storage though. But atleast 120gb of ssd are a necessity these days for atleast the OS.
  10. And one more question would an i3 and a gtx 1070 have problems together
  11. There wont be any problem as such but for the longer run it is better to have a more powerful cpu than a gpu, for eg, i5 with 1060 would be equally good. The gpu will be more useful in processing graphical requirements but your cpu actually is processing each and every requirement including parts of graphics. Also some of the future games might struggle on i3 more than i5, say 5yrs down the line.
  12. What i the fps difference between a 1060 and a 1070 in high demanding games to be played on max settings 1080p
  13. Depends whether you are playing a gpu intensive games like project cars or metro or cpu intensive games like crysis 3 or gta 5 or witcher 3 or battlefield 1.
    In the cpu intensive games, there wont be much of a difference, but you might find some difference in gpu intensive games. For the cpu intensive games, you will not get the same fps as an i5 on a i3 and vice versa. So, its kind of a mix and match here.

    Might i ask, is there a budget issue here??? If so by how much???
  14. For how do the card work with stream rendering and editing
  15. Its a pretty powerful card, well adept at all those tasks.
