    Ah, well you're fucked then huh.

    I've been looking at the Corsair 600T and the 650D and coupling it with a new modular PSU, but its a lot of money to spend on a machine that actually I want to replace pretty soon anyway.

    I experimented a lot with this, (you may recall a few posts back when I first built it) the only way to make it positive pressure is to have ALL the fans as intake fans. The problem is that this doesn't actually help because you can only put dust filters on the two front fans without some case mods.

    But certainly the cabling could be better, it looked alright at nearly midnight when I did it Might have another crack at it at the weekend when I get my compressor out. Had to use a cheap brush to dust everything off last night.

    What are you gonna replace it with then? Since good case and PSU are like the most future proof pieces you can get, unless you are going for something entirely different like htpc.

    IDK how I'd feel having a keyboard that costs more than the CPU or is about the same price as the GPU :/

    You bring up a really good point about peripherals... people seem to go all out on them and forget how much extra money they are dropping on peripherals but cutting so short on the CPU/GPU, when those are what will deliver the actual game to you. While having peripherals that make you comfortable is important, it is also important to have hardware that can drive your games... While WoW isn't much to drive... it is in 20-25 man raids. Seriously, if shamanele had spent a little less on peripherals, maybe just gotten a 128GB SSD, and 8GB of RAM, they could have gotten an Intel Haswell i5 and GTX 760 or something similar, been able to overclock seriously, and get MUCH better performance.

    Such a shame people don't ask before impulse-buying.

    i think peripherals are just as important, a new PC will only be faster, but a new keyboard, mouse and monitor makes your overall system feel better

    Of course. My peripherals are quite expensive and I have loads of them. Whats the point of a PC if I don't feel comfortable using it? I can't even play WoW without a Naga.

    BUT - priorities

    Well yeah, but the K95? WoW Legendary mouse? 16GB of RAM? 250GB SSD? Siberia V2?

    These are all absolute overkill and had he spent a little less on each of these, he could have afforded a better CPU, if not a Haswell i5, (though I seriously believe he could) then a higher-end AMD A10.

    Yeah, but thing is, his peripherals most likely got upgraded/bought after the rest of the pc was made. He says on bracets:"updated since pic".

    Also, lawsuit? What crazy stuff did you get involved in?! O_o We'll be happy to help you put together a new build though when you're ready, just make a thread when the time comes.

    My keyboard costed more than my CPU aswell, and i have a 4670K.
    But yeah, the hardware choices are a bit weird...

    also to ripox, yes performance in games are great, but physical ergonomics are far more important then the hardware inside your pc, the settings you play at can always be adjusted, how you interact with what you use is more important as general health should be the number 1 prio of anything, and sadly also the most difficult to get right, so spending money in this area is great.

    Exactly, sometimes I think people forget not everything was necessarily bought at the same time and buying good peripherals still makes sense (to me). I mean how many of you bought everything at once and have the perfect price to performance vs needs? Not everyone follows this exact recipe for "success"

    Also ask the guy instead of instantly nailing him to the cross? Maybe he did ask for help somewhere else and that was the advice he got, who knows.

    Hello again, I've done a test fitting and boot up to make sure everything fits and functions in the case, click this imgur link to see if you're interested! And sorry I'm not a good photographer!

    I had to RMA one of the 780Ti's so it's my good old 6970's in this build at the moment. I'm going to powdercoat most of the interior of the case white, the rest I will paint myself in White HS.

    Welp.

    Finally got my first WD Black drive. Just a 1TB for recording Skyrim footage with Fraps and then rendering it to my WD Blue 1TB/or I may leave it to the Toshiba 500GB external. Either way, the Blue just has too much on it already that I'm limited to only about 2 hours of recording - and everything is being recorded and uploaded pretty much... so... :P



    Suppose I'll post a pic after I install it, though you can see pictures of my rig earlier in this thread, I don't plan to change much. Just stick it in and not worry too much about cable-tidying.

    Why you ask? Sometimes you pull too tightly on cables, then they become loose, and then your computer has power interruptions which ultimately lead to all of your HDDs dying except for your SSD.

    Moral of the story: CABLE MANAGEMENT IS BAD, obviously. :P

    Yeah this was my first system which i bought off of craigslist for a steal and all of the peripheral upgrades were gifts from the holiday season. I didnt want to be extremely specific so just asked for basic stuff to comprehend instead. I plan on upgrading the cpu asap once wrestling ends and i can start working again.
