New double-PC build :)

#1ObtikPosted 10/12/2013 6:23:01 AM
Build 1:

Case: Tsunami Dream
Mobo: Biostar TA990FXE
CPU: AMD FX-8350 @ 4.0GHZ
GPU: 2GB HD7770
RAM: 16GB G.Skill @ 1600mhz
PSU: 530W
HDD: 1TB @ 7200RPM

Build 2 :

Case: Antec 1200
Mobo: Asus P9X79 Pro
CPU: Intel 4930k
GPU: Gigabyte 4GB 680
RAM: 16GB @ 1866Mhz
PSU: 900W
HDD: 1TB @ 7200RPM
SSD: Samsung 840 Pro 256GB



I wanted a new build after not being happy with my 8350, but felt like it was a waste to sell it. So I bought a cheap power supply and GPU and set it up as a backup system. What sort of amazing things should I do with this setup? Streaming / overclocking / etc. Leave some suggestions :)

Get a better GPU All that power and just a 680?

Yeah unfortunately. I've wanted the SLI setup since I got it, but I opted to go for the 2nd build rather than buying the 2nd GPU. Honestly, it was a similar price and I couldn't do both at the same time.

look in the bright side, you dont have the urge to go and make a third build. I am trying to keep myself from making a 3930k build and the only thing stopping me is my RX8

What's your budget? Will the computer be used for more than gaming?

I've already bought those 2 builds. Question is what to do with them.

I'm wondering if I made a mistake choosing Windows 7 over Windows 8.
#9Obtik(Topic Creator)Posted 10/20/2013 5:15:26 AM
bump. Windows 7 or 8?

Nothing wrong with 7 if you already have it. If you're buying new I'd go with 8 but it's no biggie.

I'd also swap the ram around if you're wanting max total performance out of the systems as a pair, intel doesn't benefit much from faster ram while AMD does. You could always OC the ram in your 8350 build but it's not a huge difference either way.
