That looks nice, but I'd prefer getting the most bang for my buck right now and being able to boot it up and game the day all the parts are present, and I'm going to be transferring my files via USB 3.0 to Project Aelita (The name for this build). I'll sure as hell take that GPU for later though. Sounds like a nice setup, that and for anyone else coming in this thread, I'm planning to upgrade as I go through the machine's lifespan, so High-end **** that'll make the NSA **** their pants at how fast it is, isn't what i'm going for here.
It mainly depends on the CPU. After taking a look at more info for myself, Depending on what clock rate you get it at, you may get a big or little performance boost. also, if you go any higher than what people with that processor generally say is a safe range, you run the risk of frying your CPU or shortening its lifespan.
I'm a Console Gamer as well, and welcome to the club, we've got Jackets and Dual GTX 750s in SLI.
But off the topic of comical responses, That's correct. as the USPS has said: If it fits, it ships. Same goes with Mobos. If it fits (and given it's compatible with the CPU and Mobo) It'll most definitely work.
If you know what you're doing, yes. I've never done it (out of fear of ******* something up), but i've heard that if you know what Clock speed people have said they've gotten that is safe and as long as you don't go beyond that, you should be fine. as for rammifications of overclocking in general, I don't know enough to help on that. Sorry.
If you're planning on ever upgrading the Mobo or SSD (IIRC), I'd advise putting out 20 more bucks for a retail copy of Windows 8.1, as OEM versions have no tech support, and are invalidated the second you switch out the Mobo or the SSD.
I'd recommend next time either getting a second HDD/SSD as swap space to save your files, or if space permits, create a second partition, transfer your files to that new partition, and then just wipe the Main partition.
It's a suprise, but I can get used to it. To be honest, It might be growing on me already. The interface feels seamless. Are you guys using HTML5 here?
