I'm thinking of buying a new computer for school and gaming. I figure that since I am going to be making games, I should be able to run them at their best, right? So here is a link to my current build:
CPU: AMD FX-6300 3.5GHz 6-Core Processor
Motherboard: MSI 970A-G43 ATX AM3+ Motherboard
Memory: Avexir Core series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-2133 Memory
Storage: Seagate Barracuda 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive
Video Card: Gigabyte Radeon R9 270X 2GB WINDFORCE Video Card
Case: CFI Diablo LT ATX Mid Tower Case
Power Supply: EVGA 500W 80+ Bronze Certified ATX Power Supply
Optical Drive: Asus DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS DVD/CD Writer
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 (OEM) (64-bit)
So I basically have 2 options. Upgrade my current build with amd parts (much cheaper), or build an entire new cumputer that is intel based. I am more leaning towards the latter, and as such, here is the build for the intel system:
CPU: Intel Core i7-4790K 4.0GHz Quad-Core Processor ($279.99 @ Micro Center)
CPU Cooler: Corsair H100i 77.0 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler ($89.99 @ Amazon)
Motherboard: Asus Z97-A ATX LGA1150 Motherboard ($144.98 @ NCIX US)
Memory: Corsair Vengeance Pro 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3-2133 Memory ($149.99 @ Amazon)
Storage: Samsung 850 EVO-Series 250GB 2.5" Solid State Drive ($99.99 @ Newegg)
Storage: Seagate Barracuda 3TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($89.30 @ Amazon)
Video Card: EVGA GeForce GTX 980 4GB ACX 2.0 Video Card ($549.00 @ B&H)
Case: NZXT Phantom 820 (Black) ATX Full Tower Case ($199.99 @ Amazon)
Power Supply: EVGA 1000W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply ($134.99 @ NCIX US)
Optical Drive: Asus DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS DVD/CD Writer ($19.79 @ OutletPC)
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 8.1 (OEM) (64-bit) ($87.75 @ OutletPC)
Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available
I just wanted to get some feedback on this build, seeing as I have only build 1 computer and am still new to the DIY world. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!
- I do not plan to overclock right off the bat, but will in the future
- I chose that video card due to performance and nvidia technologies
- I chose such a large power supply becuase the difference in price per waytt is not large and I WILL be adding parts over the next years.
- I like everything about this case; except the size. It is a little big, but have EVERY feature I want in a case
- Windows 8.1 becuase it handles SSD'd well and because I want to trust Microsoft again

So this thread is for all those moments from OBG of past. One's that made you laugh, made you cry, made you rage. I have taken some screenshots from my steam library, and added some descriptons to them. Check them out!
Let's grow this collection, so post some of your own! Most of us, new and old, have memories of our time with OBG.
Also, special thanks to Adrien for creating this community that allows people like us to meet! Here's to friendships, new and old, and to the continue growth and prosperity of OBG!
