So I made 2 AMD builds. The first one, I made a long time ago, and this Micro ATX build, that I made just recently. The Micro ATX is an intended budget build, and the first build is not an intended budget build. But I just checked, and the first one's price is WAYYY cheaper than the budget build.

NEED ANSWERS NOW, is it worth is to order the first one NOW? Will it run bf4 ultra setting smoothly?

Hows this? http://pcpartpicker.com/p/3euCJQuote from _Xiae
'Lil bit more expensive, but more sensible CPU and PSU choice, cheaper 270X, much better case and motherboard, cheaper RAM, and a 212 Plus (For overclocking + the stock AMD coolers are damn loud.)
Pretty much all cases that are not mini-ITX are essentially the same in portability (well, within reason... you don't want to be carrying a 900D around). The 200R is fairly small and light, would be fine to carry around.

I also wouldn't recommend those Logitech speakers either, they are horrible.
I still haven't decided on a case yet though...would this be a good one? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811147123 (If you have a suggestion, it needs to be micro ATX).

I am actually planning it to be portable, but I will be sure to switch out the case!How's this? http://pcpartpicker.com/p/3e4APQuote from MiiralionNot very good. Are you actually going to be transporting the computer a lot? Micro ATX is useless otherwise, and costs more. That case is not worth it, there are better cases for similar prices. (not going to recommend one because I'm not sure if you're sticking with mATX) There are better PSUs for cheaper, like this: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/xfx-power-supply-p1550sxxb9 You can get this optical drive for around $5 less: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/samsung-optical-drive-sh224dbbebe You're paying $10 too much for RAM, get this: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/a-data-memory-ax3u1600c4g9dr Switch out the processor for a FX 6300 and go with a motherboard with the AMD 970 chipset.

Has handle, but it's for Mini ITX.
Mar 21, 2014Just double checking, but now me and my friend have reached an agreement, and we are keeping a budget build gaming PC (and it's permanent this time). We decided that since this was our first build, that we should go with a budget AMD build. Here it is...http://pcpartpicker.com/p/3dyLEPosted in: Hardware & Software Support
It's a Micro ATX build. Do you think that this PC is capable of running Battlefield 4 Medium settings? Skyrim? Minecraft Sonic Ethers Shaders? Day Z? How about The Division (when it comes out)? Watch Dogs? Crysis 3? Etc.
I expect to order these parts by the middle of April.
Mar 18, 2014Let's see, I'm 13, and me and some of my friends really want to go to Warped Tour. I asked my parents and they already said yes. But I need to know if I might be a little too young.Posted in: Culture, Media & Arts
I've actually been to a couple of concerts before, and now I'm used to people offering you alcohol, drugs, and I'm used to the loud mayhem, etc. I've been to those concerts with my friends and we liked it a lot, it was really fun, other than every now and then some guy offering you alcohol or something, we also decided that we want to go again. So we thought that we could go to Warped Tour.
I've heard that throughout the party, you regularly see people doing marijuana, alcohol, etc. I've even heard people say that every corner there is someone smoking weed, and that you should expect to get offered some. (I'm not really expecting to take any lol). I know what to do basically, ex. bring bottled water (don't open it until inside). So do you think I should go? (I'm not planning to get involved in mosh pits or walls of death).
EDIT: I am very much of a rave person, like, I can handle the loudest mayhem dubstep you can imagine, and I can survive...
Mar 8, 2014So, as most of you know, Microsoft has recently announced Direct X 12 (http://www.ign.com/a...ebut-directx-12).Posted in: Hardware & Software Support
And at the same time, I just finished an Intel/Nvidia based build that I will be ordering soon. http://pcpartpicker....inja/saved/3Toj
However, I think my GPU can only support like Direct X 11.1 or something. So should I wait until Direct X 12 comes out and get a GPU that can support Direct X 12, or should I just go ahead and order the parts?
Mar 3, 2014blooper115 posted a message on Is my psu good enough for the graphics card I want?Posted in: Hardware & Software Support
Not sure if bumping is allowed, but wow, how it has been a long time, and oh my god I was SUCH a noob with computers back then, like, a GTX 760 with a 130 watt psu? Really? Anyway, after months of, LIFE, I have learned the ways, and made multiple builds on PC part picker, an AMD based one, and Intel/Nvidia based one, and an Intel, Nvidia based one that meant to be overclocked, but I decided to start from scratch. So I created an Intel/Nvidia based one that's not to be overclocked. Will this be sufficient to run Sonic Ethers Shaders mod, and games like Battlefield 4 and Crysis? http://pcpartpicker.com/p/33xTpQuote from Hakumisoso
Sounds like a good idea....
Anyways, when you are ready for a new pc, please feel free to come back here!

Nope, got it on my current computer, and it improves FPS by like 20 or 30 lolQuote from JohnOptegrove
Like that'll ever happen.
It's not, it's a complete load of horsecrap.
Mar 1, 2014blooper115 posted a message on Which build do you think is better? AMD Based or Nvidia/Intel Based?Posted in: Hardware & Software Support
True, I made a new build (from scratch, no overclock) that has a 650 watt psu, which is pretty cheap. Here it is: http://pcpartpicker.com/user/GamingxNinja/saved/3TojQuote from haiIgodmc
A 500-600w power supply is enough. Why are you getting a z77 motherboard? he already explained that you should not mix and match. either z77 + 3570k or 3570 + b75/h77. If you plan on SLI/crossfire, the z77 mobo + 750w power supply would be needed but its quite pointless. Single cards upgrades is better than sli or crossfire.

I thought about it, but to be honest, I really don't even want to spend this much money lol, I was planning to only spend about $900. And besides, SSD's are usually like 300 GB, I'm one of those people that need a lot of storage.Quote from Octley
This is just a suggestion, if you're gonna be spending that much money, an SSD would be better. You could even use an SSD and the normal hard drive if you really want that space.
Made a new build from scratch, not using either of those. Here is new one (not overclocking): http://pcpartpicker.com/user/GamingxNinja/saved/3TojQuote from haiIgodmc
Both of it will be crap overclocking. Get a better cooler. Your cpu will just be overheating if u use that piece of crap.
Mar 1, 2014blooper115 posted a message on Do I need more cooling? Can it handle Sonic Ether's Shaders?Just finished my new build from scratch. After making an AMD build, a different Intel build, and another Intel build that was meant to be overclocked, I decided to just start from scratch again and start over. Here is my build: http://pcpartpicker....inja/saved/3TojPosted in: Hardware & Software Support
I am fairly new to building computers, but I have a friend that has knowledge of building one, so when I order the parts, he will help me. My question is, do I need any more cooling? Heatsink, extra fan? I am not overclocking by the way. I checked everything (that I know of), to see if my motherboard came with a networking card (I will be connecting to the internet using a wireless connection), checked the PCI express, etc. But I need to make sure if I need extra cooling. Do I?
EDIT: I also want to run Sonic Ether's Unbelievable Shaders Mod, I saw screenshots, and I fell IN LOVE. I'm pretty sure that it can, but I just want to be sure.
