  • **New Enquiry** | First Build

    Hi all

    my first post here. Bought few things long time ago but some how never poped in to say hi on the forum. Spent last night good 3-4 hours reading your crazy posts and i love it
    So i was always wanted to build my own rig and thought to try what i can come up with if i choose my own parts here is what i come up with.
    I do think this is really good parts and a build for the money and even better rig then some of your gladiator rigs
    https://www.aria.co.uk/WishList/ONPeGtwiB60GSO2Ppgivug,,
    If you think that some parts can be changed to make it cheaper please do but i do want to keep the tower i just Love the tower has so much cooling options and its great at airflow plus you can add 2 radiators
    Also tomorrow is Black Friday so the price might fall from the rig i built

    best regards

    Rig spec soon to come...

    welcome

    first glance, ditch that SSD and go Samsung EVO - larger size as well as clearly budget doesn't seem much of an issue

        Firstly, welcome Glad you enjoyed reading up on some of the debauchery on some (read: most) of the posts, there's a good bunch of people that frequent these forums!

        Secondly, I'm no build expert but I'm sure some of the other, more tech-savvy members will be able to make some recommendations for you!

        One recommendation I would make is to maybe swap the Chronos SSD for an Evo drive for essentially the same cash - https://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Stor...roductId=56764 AND it's on superspecial atm

        Also, you haven't listed an OS or any peripherals, do you have all of those already?

            I'd personally stick with Win7. Also, buy it now because the price isn't ever going to drop again!

            Some people love 8, but I, any many of the other forum users, don't!

            Apparently, it isn't so bad if you run it in 'original' mode as it runs just like win7. But if you're going to do that, you may as well just run Win7 anyway

                Haven't said hi yet - welcome to the forums. Looks like a nice budget! I'm not sure an i7 is really necessary if this is a gaming build... if you're going to be doing lots of video encoding and stuff it almost might be worth going for X99 + an i7 5820K, then you get 6 true physical cores and no graphics nonsense on your CPU. However, I've gone for this...




                Just made a few small changes, but a bigger SSD for you and a PSU made by Seasonic (but rebadged as XFX, with a really good 5 year warranty and loads of connectors). This motherboard is also quite a bit cheaper, plus there's a cashback deal AND you can update i.e. exchange your board with Broadwell too, at least that's my understanding. Slightly cheaper but newer and more premium case, which Bit-Tech reviewed this week. Slightly cheaper RAM, slightly different GPU but these are all just tweaks essentially, your build really was not bad at all - the fundamental component choices were strong, well done!

                  thanks for the reply. From what i can see the build you made is nice but mine would only cost 100 more on top of yours so there is not much more. Oh i forgot to mantion that i wanted rig in red. I'm sorry for being so demanding but i appriciate your input would you mind sending the link for your build so i can see it and save it in mine for the future or tomorrow when i get paid and might buy it as its black friday

                  best regards

                    added different graphic card as it is much quieter and much better performance

                      I missed this one because it wasn't in the Build Advice section, sorry.

                      Have you bought all the bits ? or are still open to suggestions, but have a revised budget ?

                          ok, i'll take a peek, likely be a bit different to waht your looking at there, i can see a couple of places that could be adjusted

                          Nick's suggestion of the i5 is a pretty good one, do you plan on doing any overclocking ?

                              ok, lets see.....

                              First, my target was the 1000 mark, if you don't mind running over a little bit, i suspect a couple of extra fans, and perhaps a modular PSU might be the way to go.

                              Now for the parts:

                              CASE - Swapped this for a slightly cheaper one, kept your RED theme, has some nice features and should be able to cope just fin with airflow, like i said perhaps an extra fan or 2 would not go amiss, it has a number of options. It's also not 1/10th of your budget, which the previous one was !
                              CPU - Kept the one you wanted, but, if not overclocking, then the E3 Xeon might be worth looking at, and if you don't need the power of the i7 then as Nick suggested, the i5 would likely suit you well.
                              Motherboard - Firstly, yup.... its red, that's for sure lol, the Asus ROG stuff tends to be very expensive, some nice features, but worth the extra? i'm not sure, this one has pretty much all the same features and is well designed and reviews well.
                              RAM - 8GB of RipJaw memory, main thing is timings and it's RED !! and you can grab a second set later to boost to 16gb should ou wish.
                              CPU Cooler - ok, i went budget here, and it's another area you could look to improve on, the CPU has a TDP of 88w and the cooler can cope with 130w TDP - however, it is right on the edge of only just fitting, a couple of mm bigger and it would not fit, if say you want to go to one of the bigger BeQuiet Coolers, then you'd need to look at changing the case for something with a little more room, like the Sharkoon Bulldozer (which also comes in a Red LED version!)
                              DVDRW - Swapped for the LG one that has M-Disc support
                              GPU - I swapped this for the similar but slightly more compact EVGA FTW model, it's the same price as the gigabyte but has very slightly higher clock speeds and is backed by EVGA's usually good warranty, that said, the Gigabyte Windforce G1 is no slouch, and i was well impressed with the temps of a windforce GTX770 i used in a system, plus it was nice and quiet
                              HDD - Same as you had selected
                              SSD - Swapped for the newer 850 Evo
                              PSU - For single card use, i think you over killed it at 850w, Nick dropped it back to the very capable XFX 750w but i think for a single card, 650 should be more than fine, if looking away form the gold rated range, and at bronze, then BeQuiet make some nice models that have a 50w extra peak overhead built in, but the rated wattage you see is what it will do in continuous use, such as This One or This One
                              The only thing with the one i've selected, is it's not modular, so your going to have to work a little harder to make things tidy


                              ok, hopefully that'll give you some ideas
