THE "OMG I AM BUILDING A NEW COMPUTER" Thread
 
It's been a few years since I last built my current rig (about 5 or so) and it's been slowly dying and causing issues when streaming/editing so it's time to build a new one.

I had originally set a budget for 1200 for myself, but I went a bit over but not by much.

Hopefully this is what I'll have in my hands in a few weeks.

I feel as if this isn't a terrible build but also not high end. From all reports this should run most games at ultra with decent FPS and should assist in our streaming/editing as well.

Only a 250GB SSD? I would recommend getting a big ass hybrid drive. Or a very small SSD for the OS and a big ass 2TB HDD or Hybrid for actual storage. You also probably save some money going i5 without losing performance. Otherwise, looks really nice.

Yeah, the storage is wack.

WACK, DAWG.

Abraham Smashington 02-20-2014 12:28 PM

I have like 4 other HD's just laying around. The 250gb SSD is for the OS and our recording/editing stuff. More than enough storage.
I would lose performance for livestreaming with the i5.

Somebody's ginger ass just got served and I know it wasn't mine.

Abraham Smashington 02-20-2014 05:14 PM

haha. He's not wrong but with how I plan on using it, saving 100 bucks isn't worth the hit in performance with what I have planned for BDRcade going forward.

B_Metal 02-20-2014 05:23 PM

Oh I know. I just thought it sounded funny.

Well you can overclock an i5, but not the i7, and get better performance. That's why I mentioned it.

Abraham Smashington 02-20-2014 06:23 PM

But I don't tend to overclock but yeah. I just ordered the pieces. Should all be here within a week. Fuck. Yeah.

B_Metal 02-20-2014 08:33 PM

Fuck an overclock. AIN'T NOBODY GOT TIME FOR DAT!

BillyG 02-20-2014 08:36 PM

I WAS JUST BRINGING UP OPTIONS GUYS GEEEEEEEEZ

Abraham Smashington 02-20-2014 08:48 PM

MY COMPUTER AND EXTERNAL SHIT I BOUGHT IS GONNA BE AWESOME.

B_Metal 02-20-2014 09:06 PM

BUT ROB WHAT ABOUT THE OPTIONZ?!?!?

Abraham Smashington 02-22-2014 10:49 AM

first three parts have shown up. SSD/Mobo/Chip. Monday I should get my case, powersupply, and ram. Then I have to wait like a week to get my graphics card. Hoping that comes in earlier than later so I can put this fucker together next weekend and see if the show quality is enhanced.

B_Metal 02-22-2014 11:01 AM

I just need a part that makes Win7 stable. This fucker acts up like three times a year out of the blue and I have to do a restore point from earlier every fucking time even though I didn't download or install anything new.

Man, getting parts in separate shipments is the WORST. I just get pissed off and annoyed. Last time my CPU didn't show up, so I went and bought one and returned the one I ordered online.

Abraham Smashington 02-22-2014 12:14 PM

Yeah, usually I'm the same but I'm trying to be patient this go around haha.

It's what you are once you have nervous breakdown waiting on parts/dealing with Windows.

Abraham Smashington 02-22-2014 09:28 PM

because Billy is a bitch (and because I know he was right but I wanted to save money AND I want to keep the HD's I have laying around for a rainy day) I just picked up another 1 TB Hybrid drive for fun because I decided FUCK IT. Time to get serious business.
