In Topic: Damn PC Gaming has gotten cheap!

Yeah i knew there were something i forgot, i have a NH-D14 aswell. And the chipset on the G43 is Z87. I'm planning in overclocking it soon enough but i just haven't gotten around to doing it yet. And i live in sweden btw, not in the UK. So shipping is expensive as fuck and if it gets stuck in custom you have to pay 25 percent tax on whatever it is you are importing. 


And the build is from February this year.


In my opinion these parts are around the sweetspot of where you wanna be in terms of price to performance, at least for gaming. If you start pouring any more money you are going to get less and less performance per dollar. Not skimping on anything in particular, but not breaking the bank doing so. 


Even the big reviewers like LinusTechTips and Austin Evans have said that they would never go for the top of the line, bleeding edge of performance if they were to pay for it themselves.

Keep in mind that everything is, as always more expensive over here across the pond. But here are my specs:


i5 4670k

8GB Crucial Ballistix Sport

Asus R9 280x

MSI G-43

Crucial M500 and some old 500GB harddrive i had laying around

Corsair RM 650

Fractal Design Define R4


Unfortunaly i had to leave everything behind when i move to uni. My dad will come over and bring some of that stuff in the middle of october.

Very cool indeed. Or you could be like me and spend 1400 dollars on the machine only, no peripherals.

"Leave" is such a strong word. I'd rather say i'm not abusing this site like smack like i used to.
