Is everything about this computer Good?

Is everything about this computer good? If not what could be improved? I'm not looking for more/less power just system stability and compatability.

  1. it will work

    You say "It will work" but would it be achieving the best performance for the parts used?

    for what usage?

    if the answer is gaming then its a massive overspend on cpu/mb/RAM that wont get you any extra performance in the vast majority of games
  4. In terms of system stability and compatibility it's fine.

    But later on when games require more power it will be beneficial + i like to do mod and do crazy stuff in editors
  6. I find it unlikely to ever be worth the money for gaming.

    Well what could it be used for? Because really games are the most stressful things computers can handle. :S If not let me know cause I would like to know! thanks! :P
  8. Games are by no means the most stressful things a computer handles.
  9. Eh, what? Games are far from the most stressful things.
  10. You could build a computer for gaming at half the cost and you wouldn't notice a performance change. If you do want gaming get: 3570k + corsair h100 + ASRock Extreme 6 + 7970.

    I said let me know what things are more stressful not just completely disagree.

    What would you say this computer was for if not for gaming? And could that comp run every game on maximum? x3 screens

    For three monitors you would want to get 2 x 7970 if you want to reach high settings in games. Also, spend some money on your motherboard, but a 3930k is not necessary.

    by the time games need more power your system will b hopelessly out of date and not capable f running them

    Build a system using a
    3570k
    socket 1155 mb with a Z77 chipset
    2 x4 gig of RAM

    and you save so much money now you can buy a new computer in two years at no cost

    Lots of things. I'm most familiar with FEM and linear solvers. There's all kinds of simulations to be run on computers - do you think they'd spend millions of dollars on supercomputers if gaming was the most demanding task.

    It was more directed towards what average people do on a daily basis, if FEM and linear solvers are what the normal population do on computers then *** me. XD
  18. To give you a rough ball park figure the most intensive games load the cores of an i5 cpu to around the 40% mark

    I disagree. I played Dead Island, and the CPU reached 80% load according to Open Hardware Monitor. The game is definitely harder on GPU but 40% cpu load is too low of a guess.
