  3. Lets get an updated thread of everyone's custom Rigs that they will be using and/are already using to play SC. Please attach a hardware list and note any future upgrades you'll be making. Probably try to limit to 2-4 pics per post to limit load time on smaller devices and tag your chipset (AMD or Intel) in the tagline. Cant wait to see what you guys are running! I've already posted this on my profile but I'll start anyway. ------ CASE -- Phanteks Enthoo Evolv PH-ES515E_GS Aluminum/Steel Galaxy Silver Window ATX Mid Tower Computer Case MoBo -- MSI Z170A KRAIT GAMING R6 SIEGE LGA 1151 Intel Z170 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 ATX Intel Motherboard CPU -- i7 6700K 4.00 GHz Unlocked Quad Core Skylake RAM -- CORSAIR Vengeance LED 32GB (4 x 8GB) 3000, Cas Lat 15 CPU COOLER -- DeepCool CPU Liquid Cooler CAPTAIN 240 WHITE BOOT DRIVE -- Samsung 960 evo 500GB M.2 GPU -- MSI 1080ti FE PSU -- Corsair RMi Series RM850i MODS CABLES - CableMod custom sleeves LIGHTING- Two 12" Pure White Cold Cathode GPU- modded w/ Corsair H55 and NZXT Kraken g10 MONITOR -- Samsung UHD 4k 28" FANS – Triple Fan Mod for top of case
  4. Hey everyone, I mentioned earlier that I will be somewhat returning to get involved with this community, and that time has come sooner then expected. I've scrapped together $2500 Australian Dollars to push myself back into the PC community. Does anyone from Sydney etc. Melbourne know of a good PC website that can sell, insure and deliver finished builds? Anyone with any information is very welcome. My uni schedule requires a 5 day full-time timetable, so I'm not really free for putting together a build. Anyone with great recommendations within Australia, or outside (has to be free shipping and tax ) on some PC websites is welcome. PS. the builds need to come with insurance, great communication between buyer/seller and preferably new builds (second-hands are cool, but just my preference). PS. No more Star Citizen 10fps on a Mac lolol Thank You!
  5. This will be a shorter thread than the other two I started. It should just be the basics of building your own gaming computer and I hope it gets pinned. The others are for those of us who have already built their rigs and want to modify or augment. This one is just about building your first rig. I'll have building videos, links, and some troubleshooting advice. Everybody feel free to contribute, but keep it on track as a noob thread. Assume ignorance of the process, but don't denigrate anybody. Usually, Tom's Hardware has lots of good info and advice. Here are just the basics. Cooling options for your CPU can be found in the other thread Computer rig accessories. First things first, how much do you want to spend and when do you want this computer ready to use. so, start here to get an idea of how much money you could be spending depending on the level of gaming computer you want. http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/the-guide-build-your-own-pc/ <-- this being said, use pcpartpicker.com to spec out your computer before you start buying components. It's pretty good at telling you where the best prices can be found. EVGA has many components to build a whole computer out of so check their B-stock page for deals to help keep your costs down or better performance for your allocated money. CPUs: https://elitegamingcomputers.com/the-best-gaming-cpus/ GPUs: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/best-gpus,4380.html Computer cases: Aesthetics, volume usage, and number of fan spaces are important. You can use a micro-ITX or Full Tower. Don't go with a really cheap brand though: http://www.tomshardware.com/t/cases/ This first video is pretty easy to follow. Okay got all those components installed the way they should be? POST beep codes Computer won't post, crap! Time to troubleshoot. Remember these steps: Fault/Isolate; Remove/Replace; Test/Verify. google this: "computer will not post" to find loads of info http://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch000607.htm https://www.computerforum.com/threads/tech-guide-diagnosing-a-pc-which-will-not-post-or-start.209946/ old, but still relevant If it starts but keeps shutting down of maybe you broke it
  6. Well the Gpa came over for the holidays, saw my sweet ass rig (courtesy of @Juntau and the SCB community), and said "Here is a $1000 bucks. I want a pc that is fast and cool like yours." I said "Alright Grandpa, but only if we team up later to play some Overwatch and pwn some n00bs!" So my Grandpa is 86 years old, obviously he is not going to be a power user playing VR games everyday. Just needs something that is fast, efficient, and affordable. Obviously the budget is $1000. Doesn't need to be a power house gaming rig either. Light internet surfing, email, excel sheets, and copying data/pictures now and then. He would also like for it to have the ability to "play games" (I'm not even sure he knows how to install them LUL). This is where i'm at right now: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/M2tfVY = $1138 Couple things I want to keep in this build: Black and White Themed I love the NZXT Case and Water Cooler that I picked currently - not changing these two items Would like to keep these so I can overclock the proc and get more performance out of the i5. MUST have an optical drive Would be nice to fit a brand new copy of windows 10 into the budget if possible. Would be nice if I could include one led light strip to accent the Whites/blacks Lets get this puppy under $1000! Feedback needed!
  7. I am looking on how to upgrade my gaming experience, under a budget of $500.00. Here are my current stats. Operating System: Windows 8.1 Processor: Intel Core i5 - 3330 CPU@ 3.00GHz 3.00GHz RAM 8 GB System 64 bit. Graphics: Nvidia Geforce 640 Harddrive Memory: 904 GB Power Supply: Unknown, but known that it is maxed out on current Graphics card Maker: Gateway Motherboard: DX4870
  8. For anybody thinking about investing on this stick...make note. Out of the box it already has centering problems(which would get worse over time) and the internal build quality is the exact same as the x-55. Skip to 4:42 to see the centering issues in real time.
  9. Hey people. It's been almost a year since I posted last on this subject and I think it's time to get a new computer. My current setup is too old and can't really run anything I want to play. After browsing some local boutique shops and seeing what they put in their gaming computers I put together a list, I wanted to run it by some people who might have a better understanding of these things. I'm not really that tech savvy but I'm beginning to understand the basics. I'm still in doubt on whether or not I should go for SLI, I picked the motherboard with that option in mind. Would need a higher wattage power supply if I get myself 2 GTX 980 Ti's My overall budget for this system itself is around 2500 euros, so i have a little bit more to spend if the pricing is correct on PCpartpicker Had to choose Germany for Euro pricing, there was no option for the Netherlands. http://de.pcpartpicker.com/p/JT9x7P
  10. Heya all! So my current PC is about 5 years old and is starting to stutter when playing newer games. I'm interested in building a new PC. I'd like to build as proficient a gaming PC as I can, maxing out at around $1400. I've been saving in preparation for this, and goddamn I want a decent build. One catch. This is my first PC build. SO! Advice, and finger-pointing at essential resources, would be appreciated. But mostly I'm looking for recommendations for pc parts and where to find them. I want to have the best parts that can fit my budget, so all shout-outs and recommendations are welcome. This is a gaming rig, and I want it ready for Star Citizen. Also, I'm looking for a new display, so any mid-range model recommendations there would also be appreciated. Thanks. So? What do you guys think?
  11. For all the Retaliator owners, and future owners out there! Check the current modules and possibilities. https://robertsspaceindustries.com/comm-link/transmission/14883-Retaliator-Modules-Available (it has many modules with prices, thus i post a link this time. Which is somewhat different from what i usually do! srry...) What is your ideal Retaliator setup, as is currently possible (that is). What did you use? Why did you choose that setup? I am sure everyone is curious, as to what you (all) have in mind! Build, Share, Comment, Enjoy!
  12. Hey all I am looking for build suggestions as I really need to upgrade my current PC. I cannot even run SC decently with my current setup. What I have currently: Intel i7 860 @ 2.8 ghzIntel branded motherboard850 Watt PSU8 GB of Ram @1600 mHzWindows 7 64 bitSLI'd MSI 780's500 GB HDD250 GBB SSDI will be keeping my case as it is the Cooler master HAF, I have my windows 7 system disk, tons of cooling options, the 850 watt PSU and the two sli'd 780's as I will upgrade those when the PU is out of beta and live. So I am looking for a new motherboard, cpu, ram and storage options. I really want to keep my OS and SC on one SSD and have everything else on a HDD (Steam, movies ect). Since I am Canadian the build parts need to come from either NCIX.ca , Tigerdirect.ca or Newegg.ca Ive also been interested in water cooling..... but im scared about the potential for leaks and maintenance...fans just work or dont, with no chance of ruining your electronics.
  13. Hi! I have no plans to stream, but every plan to simultaneously play and record on extreme settings. Please lend your advice on my build. Phase 1 http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/p/Z7xfBm Phase 2 http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/p/bBK7jX EDIT: I'm currently focusing on getting an external capture device that can record to a USB connected SSD in 1440p+ and I need advice.
  14. Hey everyone, just wanted to get some opinions on what kinda build I should start to look a buying parts for, to play star citizen in 2-4k res with a budget of about $2000 - 3000 I know cases and power supply's go on sale and are usually fairly universal and I was planning to build it by years end, so not in any kinda rush. So looking for what I should be looking at to go on sale or wait for its release this year.
  15. alright so there's a couple of questions i want to ask first let me start off with I'm having issues recording my game play at all as the edges of the screen are getting cut off on all sides and fixed you guys know of. second I'm thinking of getting a new pc which will more star citizen/ future titles my current rig is o.k. but its not the best rig i could get Im looking to spend about 2 grand USD so far this is what Im thinking about getting http://pcpartpicker.com/p/v6vFHx so any suggestions and changes are welcome
  16. Planning on getting a new PC around next month and this is what I have right now after a moderate amount of research. Aiming for a 1440p gaming rig for the most part with 2D digital designing on the side. Going for a gunmetal look with some flashy LED action for some aesthetic points as well. My budget is around 3 grand and I would like some constructive feedback.
  17. So. I'm looking to get off of my laptop and hopefully soon start my first build and these are the parts that I've got my eyes on. Any problems here that anyone can see? I.e. any compatibility issues, bottlenecking, etc?: CPU: i7-4770k Cooling: Corsair H100i Motherboard: Asus Maximus VI Formula OS: Windows 7 SP1, 64-bit Memory: Dominator Platinum 16Gb (2x8Gb) 1866mhz Storage: Samsung 840 EVO 1Tb SSD Seagate 1Tb 7200rpm HDD PSU: Corsair 750W GPU: Radeon R9 290x Case: Corsair 750D Monitor: Asus PB278Q 27'' Would this combination work well? Is there anything I need to change? Is the PSU overkill (I'm thinking long-term of maybe going SLI/Crossfire)?
