While half the gang is across the pond, and I'm taking a break from filming stufffff. Tell me, what >current< rig are you building or considering to build? Drop me a specs list and tell me it's main use, i.e: productivity, gaming, development. If you want to elaborate, go right ahead :D
http://pcpartpicker.com/p/JndJJx Skylake gaming machine. A little light video editing and recording. Will have a nice Linux workstation running Kubuntu probably next year same time, for some programming and transfer the editing and recording duties to it.
Nice, X58. I have an extra i7 920 laying around myself. I wouldn't mind finding a REASONABLY PRICED Asus Rampage Gene or something since thats the only matx I recall for back then. I think there was an MSI, but whats readily on Ebay is the Gene. Yet for quite a penny still. Would make for a nice little gaming rig, portable.
I´m going to upgrade my current rig to something better. I currently use a FX8350 setup for allmost 3 years now, and it basicly allways served me realy well. But for me its time to move to something more powerfull. I like to play arround with virtualization allot, but i also wanne go more into video editing, and stuff.
It's a semi-portable workstation for rendering, video production, VMs, a bit of CAD and other random stuff, along with occasional gaming. A Quadro or Firepro would be nice, but the 970 does so well that it's hard for me to justify the upgrade. Same with PCIe NVME storage, although that situation may change in the next year. The only changes from my current rig are the CPU, mobo, and memory. Been on essentially the same Sandy Bridge 2500K setup for five years now--longer than I ever expected--but it's no longer meeting my productivity needs.
By the way, Rooster, I love your videos--especially the small form factor stuff. Keep up the good work!
This is my current PC that i plan on upgrading. I use it mainly for surfing the web, youtube, paying bills, occasionally video editing, and gaming once in a blue moon.
i7 4790k (upgrading to Zen if it's good) Maximus VI gene (upgrading to AM4) 16GB Corsair Vengeance 1600mhz (upgrading to 16 or 32GB DDR 4) H100i AIO (upgrading to a full custom loop) Carbide air 240 (don't know yet) GTX 970/R9 390x (selling both to get a 980ti) 2x Crucial MX100 (don't know yet) SeaSonic X-850 (keeping) 8x Corsair SP120 (keeping)
I'm halfway through putting together a new desk that I'll be building my current gaming rig into. I have the frame done, just trying to decide what sort of panelling to use on the outside. Its between solid black, or staining some oak.
Well, a 40% increase in IPC, plus probably higher physical thread counts will make it very tempting. Even if it's just 8 cores like the current FX, it'll be great. If it's 4c/8t like what I have, then i'll pass...
recently threw together a cheep build for my mom. put my spare amd phenom II x6 1100T on to a 990fx -UD5 R5 gave her 8 gigs of corsair 1600 ram forget exact model. put my spare 6850 into it and i am powering it with a 700Watt psu from corsair. case is a $30 mid tower just big enough to fit everything.
