Description

PC builded for my friend as he asked for nice PC under 4800PLN (~1570$ with taxes) and thats what i was able to do for him. Catzilla 720p score (CPU temp@30, GPU temp@40): http://www.catzilla.com/showresult?lp=308955 PC reached easly 14k points.

3DMark: http://www.3dmark.com/3dm/3680079 I dont know why it doesnt recognize Gigabyte GTX760 WindForce

At test it dont reach higher temp.

EDIT: In future he plan to add WC for CPU, add 8Gb of RAM and exchange 760 for 880Ti.

EDIT2: In IntelBurnTest it reach almost 100degrees.

I feel like it would have been better to get an i5 and then invest in a 280X or something

some people just prefer brand loyalty over better performance, better driver experience and better price that AMD offers...

i just remember terrible ati catalism drivers AND i dont live at north pole for that:D in other hand i loved old AMD CPU from phenom2 series that was good times of amd.

I'll admit a few years ago AMD had driver issues, was plagued with instability and game compatability problems. However over the last two years AMD has been able to pride themselves on their drivers and performance. They have proven to be more stable and provide even a smoother single and even dual graphics card performance over Nvidia. Most review sites overall agree AMD is the better graphics card choice for nearly all price tiers. If you ever had a chance to test them without the past negative bias I'd assume you'd be very impressed as these changes have moved me to try and help those who had the past bad experiences learn about how great the experience is now. Nonetheless hope your friend enjoys his system.

not true. what if he needs CUDA? or the extra 4 threads? it's not a very detailed description, so how should you know? then again, how should i know? idk, i just argue a lot.

What part of my reply wasn't true? Though you have valid points out of context of what I posted. I suppose I was assuming this build was mainly for gaming.

he wont use that extra threads and cores for now, cuda will be only used in games for NOW. i dont know what he want to do in future, mayby he will stream etc sow he get use of that additional power

I dont like AMD GPU thats first. Second i speak to him and he will OC a little and exchange 760 for 880ti when he get cash and 880ti will go out

"I don't like AMD" lol. You could've gotten a better AMD card for the same price, and still upgraded to an 880 or whatever when your friend has money.

"better" depend on point of view. I, few my IT friends also dislike AMD cards, sow somethink have to be on it

EDIT: and i loved amd in phenom 2 times

Well considering AMD is better about driver support nowadays (I have an NVidia card, and GeForce experience is the biggest pain in the butt I've ever dealt with), and has features that match NVidia like Freesync and GameDVR, AND you could get a better performing card for the same price, I really don't think the 760 is at all practical right now.

Have you tried using raptr? Thats the biggest piece of junk ever created.

unless he's getting another 760 in the near future it isn't.

the 880ti will be more expensive than the actual computer when it's out also how did you have an i7 and gtx 760 whilst having the price soo low?!

  • 70 months ago
  • 1 point

easies way to keep that pc up to date will be adding WC, 8Gb ram and change GPU for better one. Suggested price of 880ti is bout 600-800$ sow we will see what happen. i7 and 760 u can get even cheaper, just choose 1st gen i7, remember that its 2Gb 760 not 4Gb one sow ~600$ isnt too expensive when u have budget and want PC for "years"

Move the drives down to the bottom rack and remove the middle rack for more airflow. It will really help to push more fresh air on the GPU

Good build, but you could have gotten an R9 280 for less than the GTX 760 and it's more powerful than the 760.

Nice user name. How's that SSD with the gimped NAND running? Faster than an SSD?

  • 70 months ago

Its my first build with SSD sow i dont know but W7 start in ~10s and shut down with same amount.

Thanks. That should dispel some of the haters around here.

I used that SSD in my latest build. It's quite good, and feels no slower than other SSDs in normal use.

I have ATTO benchmarks posted in the pictures here: http://pcpartpicker.com/b/sL2RsY

Again, thanks. People tend to hate on it because it got a very unfavorable review, but they don't put things into perspective. It's still fast storage.

Nice build there!

I use that same SSD, and it has been VERY good. Very fast speeds. And I'm most likely getting another one as well.
