    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.

    Look at Marest's thread here: http://www.mmo-champion.com/threads/...-Sample-Builds

    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

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.
    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.

    Opposed to Nidor's awesome rig, here's my simple rig. :P





    YES, I know it is messy, see above for reason why! Not to mention I just don't really care anymore, since I don't have a window now.

    There's a difference between extreme tightness when cable management.. And none at all. :P

    I guess you could say, I've become slightly paranoid about doing it again. =S

    I realize what I did in my mistake and I guess I've just not gotten up the want to do cable management again after I did that. =/

    It's something I won't see, anyways, and besides, it only makes adding hardware/changing hardware later on more complicated and time-consuming. If your cables are mostly loose, then you need not worry about cutting a bunch of zip ties to get something else powered with that one SATA cable or Molex cable.

    Ram: 16gb 4x4 corsair platinum
    PSU: Cooler Master V1000 1000w+ 80+
    GPU: 2x msi 780 lightning
    SSD's: 2x intel 180gb SSD's
    Fans: Bitfenix spectre pro - white led
    Fan controller: Scythe Kaze Master Pro
    Case: Corsair 540 air

    Well yes, with MSI Lightning cards you're supposed to OC the shit out of them with all that extra vCore available. 780 Lightning can OC by at least 35% easily (vs stock)...not kidding, some people have theirs smoking at 1300mhz core. But since you have two of them the OC's probably won't do much >_<

    Definitely OC that 4930K, do post results in the chat thread or CPU overclocking thread

    Love my Gibraltar rack. Picture in the computer forum chat thread for anyone who wants to see my kit. :P

    I'm contemplating getting a new case, anyone that could help me decide?
    I've currently got one of those Antec gaming series cases which i've had for about 2 to 3 years now, but the design is pretty bad (near impossible for cable management), could barely get my MSI 780 Gaming in there without HDD's blocking it & such.
    Plus it gets way too dusty after a few months, i'd rather have something i could hide the cable's easier and thus make it easier to keep clean as well.

    Looking around the web i've come across 3 options, the NZXT Phantom 630, which looks amazing, but is just slightly pricier than i'd like, plus i don't really like the top fan feature because it just feels like dust gets in easier that way based on my current case, might be just me though.
    Then there was the Corsair Obsidian 550D, which is better priced, but just seems a little less amazing than the Phantom, no top fan though which seems like a plus for me.
    And then there's the Coolermaster Stryker or something, which "looks" cool, but it just doesn't seem that it has all the options & userfriendlyness of the other ones.

    I'd love to go for the Phantom personally, the only thing that's been sort of holding me back is the price, but if it's worth it it's worth it honestly.
