Feedback Wanted Looking for opinions/suggestions on build

Recommended Posts

I built this a while back and it runs most games pretty well at Ultra (except for Arma 3, it hates Arma 3.) http://pcpartpicker.com/list/DmFFkL

I'm looking to get VR and I've not really gotten any solid feedback on this rig before. What can I upgrade for a better VR /general experience (besides the ever so obvious GPU)? Also, I want a better case if anyone has any suggestions.

In my opinion you're pretty much set for VR. Do you perhaps already have a VR Headset? You can't without it.. :P I personally prefer speakers for audio, a good quality speaker set combined with a amplifier and proper placement. Can't get any better than that. :D I can guarantee a amazing audio experience that while in VR.

Well cases vary from person to person as everyone has their own taste. I mostly tend to go for black, just plain old black steel cases. The current popular NZXT S340 is a beauty as well as the Corsair Clear 400C. Or if you're into funky stuff, the Corsair Carbide Spec-Alpha (available in black/red, Black/silver, White/red). Or the Silverstone Raven RVX01

@rain2reign No VR headset yet but definitely be coming soon. May get one next check. I may actually invest in that Thermaltake Core P5 tho, definitely a really nice case. I have a set of 7.1 surround sound speakers that I've had for a while and they work quite good still. Coupled with my Soundblaster soundcard (yes im old school i prefer a good ol soundcard!) they are even better

wow the cases are insane


seems in the last months glass parts are more and more trending with cases

My current case has a glass side altho it'd actually plexiglass. I like the glass cases especially the open ones

Usually it's the supposed advertised glass is either plexiglass or one the forms of acrylic(there are various forms). On most cases i find the glass very plastic.. It doesnt feel as high-end as the rest of the casing. Which is a setback for me personally.

In some cases you can even bend it slightly while the case is pure metal... BUT they do make the case and the components look great. If not for me putting my case under desk i would have gone for a open case myself too. :D

I have seriously been thinking about building on this platform for a long time now...so cool!

As far as your rig is concerned, I agree with @rain2reign, It looks solid. Add an updated GPU and step it up to 32gig of ram and I think it will run beast mode.

Just checked out your build and I agree with Juntau, if you're doing anything other than gaming I can see the 32gb's helping out. I would also suggest getting a new power supply, 80 Plus Gold or above, reason being faulty Power Supplies can lead to faulty hardware and pulling tons of electricity.  I'll post a quick video to help get the basic understanding of what and why you need specific things in a Power Supply below, otherwise your looking good to go!

      Morning all
      I was wondering if those who use joystick and throttle can lend me some help.  I have a logitech X56 HOTAS and have finally after much trial and error have gotten it to work.
      The issue I am personally having is the way the default thrust is working with my throttle.  For example in Elite Dangerous my throttle works like I would expect, if I slide it all the way back that is a dead stop.  If I push forward it is full engine throttle.  In this game the throttle is idle in the middle which is hard to find for me cause my throttle has no mid detent, also when I push forward it goes in reverse engine thrust and when I pull all the way back it is full thrust forward.  To me this is not good especially how the throttle IMO is reversed.
      Is there a way to make the throttle perform like it does in elite where I can use the full range for going forward and set a reverse button and if not can someone assist me in getting it whee at least when I push all the way forward it is full throttle forward.  I have tried setting in game settings FLIGHT - HOTAS thrust invert toggle to both settings yes and no and it has not effected how my throttle works at all is remains backwards to me.
      Thanks anyone who can lend assistance.

      Yo Yo whats up start citizen's have a question hope I can snag an answer.
      I've wanted to run this game for quite awhile now just recently got slightly new Gaming notebook.
      CPU specs
      Intel i5-8300H 2.3Ghz
      Nvidia Geforce 1050
      8Gb Ram
      My question is, is there anyone running this game with a set up pretty close to that that can give a straight shot answer I'd appreciate it.

      After a long time of research and configuring what I believe to be the best set up for Star Citizen and general gaming and purpose, it's almost ready to start the process.
      I was always intrigued by the idea of a simpit but never liked the ergonomics until I came across this post and the set up going on:

      I believe this is the set up I'm going after. Just wanted to know if there was anything I should add to this list besides the Volair Simpit, large center display and two alternate displays:
      VKB Space Sim Joysticks
      VKB Throttle

      Corsair Dark Core RGB SE w/ Amazon Qi Charger
      Is there anything else I should be looking at? Eventually there will be a VR headset and I will most likely be picking up the FOIP camera for SC.

      I come back to you following my thread that I did six month ago, and I have a lot of news!
      To sump up quickly, I’m in the company that has created the Lexip mouse, a mouse with two integrated joysticks for 3D profesionals. After my last thread, I talked with my team and the project of created a gaming mouse started.
      We have improved our first mouse thanks to our beta testing team who allowed us to create the perfect gaming mouse: 200 to 8200 DPI, braided cables, programmable buttons…
      Today, in order to bring this project to a successful conclusion, we launch our Kickstarter campaign! I wanted to share this information with you in preview because it’s thanks to you, members of this forum that this project is born. 
      I can answer all of your questions, this mouse is my baby! ;)
      Thank you for everything!

      WD PR4100, TS-453A-4G or DS918+
      The first two are very similar price give or take 50. The newer one of the QNAP, The TS-453B-4G, however, the pricing is gone way up to €702.67 from its old(er) version €491.82 TS-453A-4G.
      The TS-453A is the very similar with the PR4100 in price, but it does have HDMI, which the WD doesn't have. However it is software side that the QNAP is the king QNAP are supposed to be the leader in apps with synology coming second.  I'm leaning towards the second one TS-453A-4G at the moment.
      Basically I want to use it as another backup of my OS, torrent and watch vids really.  However, I lack the experience of running/setting up all three.
      any advice would be much appreciated.
