Yep, I know some parts are different than your list, but you DON'T have the money. You're asking for too much for a $1400 CAD build that's top of the line + overclocking + monitor + OS. I'd say $1800 CAD would do it. You don't really need to overclock anything. The GPU is top dog. The cpu is quad. The parts I picked out leave you room for overclocking. The only missing item is a mid-tower ATX case.
You missed out the $8 flat rate shipping from NCIX last nov/dec. Basically, you could've shipped this whole pc for $8. Their sales are just rebate craps week after week. The only incentive to shop at ncix would be the 5% tax & cheap flat rate shipping. They do price matching, however.
Hello guys, its me again, I've built my computer and I've been running a few tests, I am a bit worried about the performance. In 3Dmark06 I'm getting 17 562 (SM 2.0 = 6902 SM 3.0 = 8700 CPU = 4492). It also seems like my CPU is running hot even with the Hyper 212, 27C Idle and with Prime 95 about 49C on load. Is my score normal, anything I should do? I have the the latest gpu drivers (Catalyst 9.12).
