This is my first build what does everyone think?
According to your title, your PC is a fist :).
You chose great parts but you skimped out on the power supply, and we need more pictures to see more of this build. Other than that, nice job.
The picture has a Corsair RM850 psu in it, so I'm going to assume that the listed psu is a mistake.
I didn't notice that, thank you for clearing that up.
Nice build but I agree with whosyourboss now a better power supply choice could of been the EVGA SuperNOVA NEX series 750W 80+ Gold and it's fully modular.
what's with you and power supplies?
CX Series on a 1700$ budget seems odd. I don't hate the CX series (I have a CX600M myself, but I did have to RMA mine) but it doesn't seem right to me when people spend less on their PSU just to fit a budget they had no problem spending $1000+ on.
Yeah, CX PSUs have REALLY bad capacitors.
Probably because the CX line are a bad line of PSU, especially if you plan on overclocking.
Being picky about the PSU you choose isn't a bad thing. They're a vitally important part of any build.
I was half joking, boss was giving me guff about my psu choice as well. i should've elaborated or gave a wink or LOL!
I don't remember commenting on your post, but seeing as you have overclocked components in your build and a well enough budget to afford something better, I could see why I criticized that. You still have a great build though. Those LED's really shine! ;)
Thanks Bro! like I said I was half joking. I didn't mean any offense and your criticism was constructive :)
You have a similar situation with the OP's build, a large budget, but you skimped on the PSU. CX series isn't the worst, but I don't see why people spend 1700$ on builds and get such low grade power supplies compared to something that is a lot better for a reasonable price. But your build is very nice, I like your color scheme! ;)
TOP OF THE LINE
More pics would be awesome, looks like a great machine! I might have gone with 2x8GB memory to leave room, but to each his own :)
Nice build. but you have the wrong PSU listed in the parts list.
Nice build, yes but you have 600 listed and you have and 850, much better choice +1
Cheaped out on the power supply
very bad idea...
Sorry for not being back sooner i listed wrong psu. Pc has been running sweet but already looking at an upgrade.
