You can order them (may be on backorder) on http://www.performance-pcs.com/
You can get 280(x) on ebay for about that price(USD) if you are confident with 2nd hand parts.
What dye are you using? Love the build.
The full 16x pcie lane is not really a factor but I agree with the air flow.
They are computers with closed OS basically...
If you can fit it, then you might as well use it. The price he has it listed for is great for it as well. Can't say no to better performance. The 5820k is an x99 enthusiast chipset so liquid cooling, even a AIO, is actually modest for it.
Ya that is what I was trying to get across.
But you cannot put a gtx 780 with a 780ti even though they are both Kepler but a 290 can with a 290x on AMD's side.
On NVIDIA's side, they have to be the same VRAM and gpu (in this case, both 780s) correct?
+1 Love my Vmoda M100s. Very good build
If you want the best performing and quiet AIO, then the Swiftech H-220x or H-240x are the best and they are expandable if you want to go that route like I did. The Hyper 212 would still be great for a nice mild OC. If not, the Kraken is a great performer. I personally avoid any Asetek rebrands because I want to avoid supporting them.
I love it as well.
A water cooler is not really necessary for a locked i5 so you should be fine. At the most, I would get a 212 EVO.
The 8350 is beaten by the i7 but not by a massive amount. The chipset is not that far behind with them and offer many of the features that the average user will use such as USB 3.0, many of the features brought by Intel such as M.2 and Sata Express are not practical for another couple years or so based on pricing and/or availability. The i7 beats the 8350 for double the price which might not be worth the performance to some people who are not using it for Video rendering. This system seems to be geared as a gaming system and the added speed of the i7 ( maybe up to 15 minutes faster) might not be worth it if you only uploading a video every other week.
The Fx 6300 outperforms the i3 and can be overclocked http://www.game-debate.com/cpu/index.php?pid=2129&pid2=1146&compare=core-i3-4370-3-8ghz-vs-fx-6300 , and now games are taking advantage of more cores (even Far Cry 4 will not work with a dual core but has been modded to work with HT on the i3), but you would be correct in your other statments. The FX 6300 is very good for the price and the FX line is still very strong. Later he can upgrade to the 8350 if he wanted which is still very cheap and keeps up with the i5 and i7 for much cheaper, but he might want to get a CPU cooler in the future, but would still be cheaper than the i5. Not a "AMD fanboy" I have a 4790k in my system.
Look at the date built.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v98ZXl5JS08 According to this, the XFX seems to do a better job at cooling than the Windforce, but the windforce does it with less noise, I think the XFX looks much better, but I would suggest looking around at multiple sites just in case. Either way, you cannot go wrong with either as they both are very good at keeping the AMD cards at bay.
Thank You, Have Fun with your PC!
Understandable, well good luck and very nice computer. I have mine built but I am waiting till I get my custom Swiftech H240-x full custom loop, so keep your eye out for that.
I am sorry, I though your comment said you wanted a 120hz or better IPS panel, my bad. If 1080p IPS 5ms response time is what you want, This seems to fit your criteria http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824236309 (although you probably have read multiple reviews for different monitors). From reviews, it seems this is a good choice, or you could wait for 4K IPS panels. Sorry for the confusion.
This one sells for more than the two you talked about because it is 1440p IPS. Review here: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/overlord-tempest-x270oc-monitor,3879.html . The price is $450 USD(Around 514 CAD) for this currently. This is quite expensive, but it is 1440p and UP TO 120hz capable with OCing. The only way else that I know of to get an IPS at 120hz other than this is Korean panels on ebay which may be cheaper but might be less dependable.
If you want a 60+(when overclocked) refresh rate IPS The Overlord Tempest 1440p IPS (up to 120hz overclockable) might suite you. Link: http://overlordcomputer.com/products/tempest-x270oc-glossy
Warning though: it only supports Dual DVI if that is a problem
...The link that I gave you shows this. Also http://www.guru3d.com/articles-pages/geforce-gtx-980-sli-review,23.html.
Although this is for 4k.
290x still beats the 970 but you are mostly correct. The 970 beats the 290 by a decent amount though. For 4k the 290x is still one of the best choices thanks to its larger memory bus.
The 970 OCd does perform better but the same can be said when you do what little overclocking you can do with the 290x.
The pump noises tend to be loud in CLCs but yes it would run at a lower RPM, but still might not be quieter than the EVO like the graphs on that review show.
AIOs tend to be louder than most of the tower coolers (for reference http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/Noctua/NH-D15/7.html) A simple hyper 212 can do all of what you said for much cheaper. Maybe he wanted to have it for aesthetic purposes or maybe a kraken g10 down the road?
I thought that this would be completely liquid cooled, maybe in the future so that it fits the name better and will look even better than this already does.
If you would have got a 8gb kit of ram you might have been able to get a R9 290 or 280x or maybe gtx 770 for the money if this is a manly gaming build. Good Job!
If you built this recently, the Swiftech H-220X is out now.
Okay that makes sense, thanks for the reply.
Ya but that case in this price range is a little weird and like I said, he could have bought a better case such as the 730t for the same price the other day. Budget was quite high on this build and $30+ for a better case would have probably been worth it.
Why the budget case with a large budget? Nice build all together but maybe you could have bought a 760t for a little more, I even saw the 730t on Newegg for 69.99 with rebate.
Ya they have to do alot of work with the menu's and getting optimization for 1080p 60fps, but once I am in game, Most features work and the 792p of Titantfall does not bother me much, but I would be a hypocrite if I did not say that I am building a PC for gaming which is replacing an alienware M15x with gtx 765m and i7 920xm that I had for about a year, at the moment. Good luck with your computer and have fun with PC gaming.
Curious about what you disliked about the Xbox one? I have one and it does its job pretty well, but this PC is very nice.
Did the Kraken X60 really cost you $320?
A 280x would has enough vram for only two monitors.Sorry for not looking at the pics of the monitors my bad.
Do you have multiple monitors? If not, then you might have been able to get a r9 280x or 770 for the same price or less. Nice build by the way.
