    Just built me a new computer, it's fucking amazing. Makes my old one look like a gameboy. My budget was 1500$.

    Intel i-7 4790k Devil's Canyon Quad-Core/ Intel HD Graphics 4600 (Turbo mode at 4.4 ghz)
    Coolermaster Hyper 212 EVO 120 mm (Aftermarket cooler for my magma hot CPU)
    Zotac GeForce GTX 970 4GB DDR5
    Gigabyte GA-Z97X
    Samsung 850 EVO 250 GB SSD
    Western Digital Blue 1TB 7200RPM 64MB Cache
    G.Skill Trident X Series 2 x 8GB DDR3 2400
    Rosewill ARC-750W 80 PLUS Bronze Certified (Wish it was modular)
    NZXT S340 Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Case (Shit case, has no optical bay)

    The total was: 1,340.85$

    Sooooo goooodddd.

    Thanks. You should though. Building a computer for the first time is really tiresome, but once you're finished, you feel so accomplished. It's also nice to have an incredibly fast computer.

    Nice build OP. I have a mid level build that I made last month. All prices are in CAD.

    https://ca.pcpartpicker.com/user/Acc...d/#view=8yT323

    I am thinking of picking up a new graphics card, in the hopes that the AMD announcement will help prices drop a bit. Might pick up a mechanical keyboard too - my favourite is the Das Keyboard Model S.

    Damn son don't you want to Overclock that shit and SLI your GPU while you're at it? That looks solid.

    I have
    -Athlon II X2 250, 3.0 GHz
    -AMD Radeon HD 6670
    -Standardish 4GB
    -Some regular 500GB HDD llab
    -350W PSU or so that came with the PC (the lack of a 6 pin connector limits my choices, plus not enough 12V Amperage)
    - Gigabyte GA-M68M-S2P (because fuck Z77 above, and your Ivy Bridge architecture)

    I went full console peasant last year and so I stopped upgrading the rig altogether but I'd very much like to build one from scratch sometime next year.

    Overclocking it to 4.6 ghz raised my core temp by 10c, so I'd rather leave it at 4.4 ghz with Intel's Turbo Mode. My idle temp gets me around 33c, so overclocking it would put it at around 43 which isn't bad, but not too great either since I did get an aftermarket cooler. And why sli? the 970 GTX is more than capable of running many games at max settings. It got to 220 FPS on League for me.

    350W PSU? My old build has a 500W PSU and it was made back in 2009. I have no idea how you managed to use such a low PSU.

    Other than that, I wish to know how much it costed you for that build. It seems like you were on a budget or just those type of people who don't seem to care about getting fancy parts.

    If you were on a budget, that's a great GPU to choose from.

    Don't use that site, they're a bit overpriced. Newegg or Tigerdirect is your best choice.

    Other than that, very solid build. The i-5 4th gen was actually the CPU I planned on getting, but I really wanted that hyperthreading, so I got the i-7 instead. If you can also fit in a few more dollars, get the 4590. It's only a few more dollars with the same wattage. The turbo speed gets it up to 3.7 ghz which is 400 mhz more than i5-4440.

    It's a couple of years old, like probably maybe 5 already.

    I was just wondering, seeing how most people who get a "K" CPU usually do so just to overclock the thing. Then again the people I know of that do that are running on water cooling so there's that. Also yeah SLIing would just be overkill, I said all that in jest for the most part.

    The HD6670 is one of the most efficient GPUs from its time and it doesn't require a 6+2 or 6pin connector, so draws its juice directly from the PCIe slot. I wasn't really on a budget, it's more like I wasn't really aiming to build the thing. I used to frequent a hardware forum quite often and interacted with people who were upgrading by the minute, but I never got around to upping my game myself. I guess that's mainly because we don't get decent enough hardware here, as PC gaming isn't really a thing. So I'm pretty much limited to console gaming, even though I'm enthusiastic towards PC stuff.

    On a side note, I noticed you're rocking a decent wattaged PSU of 750W but it's only Bronze efficient, seems like you skimped a little wee bit on your power unit there I'd say. It might just be my old PSU OCD kicking in though as that's more than enough for the setup, but I'm an efficiency whore (Gold and Platinum ).

    Yeah, I was thinking the same thing. You could get a modular Gold/Platinum Seasonic with the budget he has.

    Thanks, I was on a strict budget so I felt that the 4590K wasn't worth the extra cash at the time.

    I might upgrade to a K - series i5 or i7 + Z97 Mobo later, but that's not a big priority for me right now - I'm more interested in a mechanical keyboard and may pick up a R9 290/290X if prices drop enough after 390X/Radeon Fury is released.
