    i just joined the pc crowd with an i5 4670k, gtx780ti machine. also having a samsung 9 series 2k monitor here for testing atm /hard to let it go now tbh, it´s the best screen i´ve ever played games on – so tempted to keep it but it´s superexpensive :) games like far cry 3, borderlands 2 and asscreed black flag look amazing with everything maxed out running smooth in 2k resolution. it´s crazy really. still not interested in titanfall though. might check it out in a year or so when it´s on sale.
    instantly became a huge fan of windows 8.1 btw.

    Wow! Congrats on the awesome PC!!!! :D

    I’m not commenting on this site anymore (hate the new design amongst other things!), but just signed in to say hi!

    The gtx 780ti is a beast of a card, I love my gtx 780 and just love gaming on the PC. Can’t really go back to playing games in sub 1080p / lower than 60fps… Just doesn’t look right now! :)

    haven´t commented much on here anymore either.
    loving the pc this far. this monitor is absolutely blowing my mind as well. i just wanted to check it out but i doubt that i will be able to let it go now :) it´s like an oled really. it´s just the best screen i´ve ever used.

    PC Builders – I have a question. Forum is not back yet so I shall attempt to get your attention here.

    I am buying a GPU this weekend. Hopefully a GTX 770, if I can find one for around 400 000 won. Failing that, it will be either a 670 or 660Ti.

    Now, my budget for the other components is ~$750. How does this look?

    i5 4670K (taking a page from polygem’s book here)
    212 EVO
    ASRock287 Extreme 4
    8GB RAM
    Seasonic S12II-520
    500GB HD (I know 1TB is like $9 more, but I really don’t care about the HDD, because I’m getting a Samsung SSD soon after anyway).

    Case is yet to be determined, as all popular ones I searched from logicalincrements.com were wildly overpriced on Korean computer retailer websites. I’m just going to go ahead and assume that a decent case can be had for $50 and I just don’t yet know about it.

    Does anyone foresee any problems with that system? I trust that i5 won’t bottleneck a 770, but are that power supply and motherboard good? Everything compatible? I had to go cheaper on a few parts to stay in my budget.

    @Digital Bamboo
    Personally, I’d go with an i7-4770K (but that’s just me) and it’s not that much more expensive, either.

    You might need more wattage from your PSU, though. My old 630 W PSU didn’t have enough energy to go around after upgrading to a GTX 680 (from a 460). My PC kept rebooting due to not having enough energy to go around while gaming.
    Perhaps 700 W or more? Mine’s at 850.

    But, back then I had an old first gen i7 930, which has a higher wattage requirement compared to the new 4th gen ones, so it might be enough. I’d ask around some more. *shrugs*

    @Knight Of Justice: 32-bit processors are out of production for years now. Windows 7 and later can’t even run on that many processors that are not 64-bit, just a few odd 32-bit Pentium 4 variants nobody uses anyway, especially not for gaming. The fact there even is a mainstream 32-bit Windows is quite silly as the need for backwards compatibility with 16-bit applications for a common person is negligible.

    @Digital Bamboo

    i posted in your forum thread but yeah….it´s down.

    i am just starting into pc but i´ve looked up tons of stuff and talked with friends about it.
    but i´d suggest you better listen to the pros :)

    anyway, my 2 cents:

    the i54670k is a good choice if you´re mainly going for a gaming rig.
    the i7 would be helpfull if you really run multiple apps and programs at the same time. not talking about the browser with 10+ pages, open office, steam, a game and teamspeak, plus program xyz running in the background. that´ll work with an i 5 as well. i7 is a bit of an overkill and the performance difference is minimal for gaming. it´s good for rendering, graphics programs etc. for professionals in these fields.

    if both are very close to same pricing an i7 wont hurt of course. some say that future games (in YEARS) might take more advantages of the i7 structure but that wont mean the i5 can´t handle those games very well anymore then.

    i5 wont even bottleneck two 780s.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TGdo75gasaQ

    really like that linus nerd. pretty good infos about pcs :)

    this guy is also pretty good:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iHQqpIEw7jk

    witht the intel cpu try to go for a ´K´version. you can overclock those later if you want

    i have an MSI Z87-G45 motherboard. it´s fairly priced, rich on features and i personally think the bios is pretty noob friendly (if you are looking into optimising, overclocking etc. no need to bother with that much at all if that´s not your thing)

    for the case i have a thermaltake urban s41. it´s pretty huge. i wanted to go with a smaller case first and then put it ON my desktop but i decided to take a bigger one for better airflow and easier future upgrades.
    i also like the bitfenix prodigy, it´s cheap and smaller, pretty popular. make sure your motherboard will fit your case.

    the gtx780ti is a bit of an overkill right now. i can max far cry 3, borderlands, ass creed black flag etc. and run it on 2k resolution and it runs just great but no need to do that really. these games look awesome on slightly lower settings and 1k too :)

    i think buying a 670 or 660Ti would be fine as well. you might want to upgrade in 2 years or so but with amd´s mantle tech coming up and all that, it might not be too bad to wait how that´ll turn out and then switch to amd after prices have dropped. 780´s will soon drop even more in price as well. in two years they´ll be very affordable.

    i think you´ll be fine with either a 670 or 660Ti. i tried far cry on lower settings too and trust me, even the lowest looked better than the console version.

    8gb ram are just fine for gaming. this is probably the easiest part to uprgrade anyway. you will always be able to add some more ram to your machine easily. just makes sure you have a decent motherboard but 8gb is more than enough. that jayz guy has a performance video on his oage that shows that 8gb is the sweet spot for gaming atm.

    i´d also go for a 750w psu .

    i really love windows 8.1 btw.

    ssd´s are awesome. superfast.

    pc´s are pretty great i must say :)

    @ DB:

    just checked that your mobo is about the same price as mine only 10 dollars more so you wont really save much on the msi. yours looks better too / not a fan of that hardcore gamerstyle dragon logo on mine :)

    i think a better psu would be indeed usefull. i5 and gtx660ti or 670 will be just fine and will last you for a good while.

    again. keep in mind, these atx motherboards wont fit in smaller cases like the bitfenix prodigy. if you go for these mobos you have o make sure to take a midi tower. no tiny little steambox builds with these :)

    if space isn´t a problem it´s probably more clever to go for a bigger case anyway for future upgrades. it´s much easier to install stuff in there as well.

  26. Llewelyn_MT

    @Knight Of Justice: That’s more like a description of a “gamer who didn’t upgrade a thing since WoW came out”. Titanfall won’t run on a Pentium 4 PC anyway. Even the aged Athlon X2 2.8 GHz is way faster than most P4s.

    Besides, you’re reading this wrong. Minimum system requirements is not a set of things that will run a game when put together. It’s a guarantee you won’t run it if you don’t have at least that and you’d better have a better CPU or GPU, otherwise it will barely start.

    #26 1 year ago

    @polygem Thanks for all the info, man. I think I managed to read your forum post before the site changed over, (if it began something like, “I promised myself I wouldn’t post here anymore, but this thread just pushed all my buttons”) but didn’t have a chance to reply.

    I’ll have to wait and see what GPU I can grab for ~400. Video cards and cases seem to be considerably more expensive in Korea, compared to the US&Canada. i5′s go for about the same price, but the i7′s I’ve seen are $50-100 more than the i5 4670K.

    Anyway, I think you’re right about the power supply, even though I won’t be using it for anything more demanding than gaming on a single monitor with a GTX 770. A 620W should be sufficient. For all I know, the 770 could cost over $500 in the Korean brick-and-mortar store, so it may just be powering a 670 or 660Ti anyway.

    Case size (&style) is of little concern to me, as long as it performs the basic functions that it should. It will be going in my office/man cave, so it can be as big and ugly as I want it to be.

    @Digital Bamboo:
    …i lied / about the posting part /but only posted 3 times or so last month. it´s a start :)

    you´re right about the psu. you don´t really need 750w. 650w will be just fine for what you´re planning….if you can, at some point, grab a second 660ti and want to sli then you might be happy that you have a better psu already but man, that probably never stops with these pc´s. you can go crazy and pimp everything – always – a neverending story but it doesn´t have to be.
    i think you´re building just the right machine for right now and the next 2 or more years. with your chosen specs you will be fine for a good while and everything will run just fine. everything less would be a bit of a compromise and everything more would be a bit of an overkill really. you nailed the sweet spot and that makes you sound like a clever guy :)

    i went for an overkill of course but that´s me. i just canot tame these techno horses sometimes :)
