PC building advise and instructions thread


#302

Is it any good?


#303

I really like mine. What kind of games are you looking to run?


#304

Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus


#305

A 1060 should have no problems with that game. :] from my searches, a gtx 770 or better is the recommended minimum gphx for that game.

From my steam search, a 1060 6GB should have no issues running it at maximum.


#306

TechSource finally made a beginners guide for building a PC if anyone needs a good YT video to follow


#307

I haven’t had time to finish my PC because I’m in the middle of moving to a new place so I’ll for sure update pics once I’m all settled in January :smile:


#308

Looking forward to it


#309

Just so you fools know, shortly into 2018 I should have my parts to build my PC


#310

I did mod my PS4 controller last week though


#311

I’m working on a second myself with the newer AMD ryzen I’ve already ordered a few parts but gonna wait till I get income tax moneyz to get the graphics card. I’m also upgrading my old one changing from a AMD FX 4350 to a 6350 and the graphics from a gtx 750 ti to a 1050 ti which will be fairly cheap for a little bit of gain


#312

Here’s something I did before Xbox one was released. It’s a 360 even though not completeled in the picture it had orange led lighting and a black cd drive casing with a biohazard symbol I did all of it by myself. I have video of it in action on my old phone if I can get it to work I’ll post later


@ArPharazon seeing that can of rust oleum reminded of this project :rofl:


#313

All right everyone, I was going to wait a bit to order my parts but I pulled the trigger anyways. All my parts are on their way!


#314

Gotta parts list ? Interested to see what your doing with a amd build.

That’s my list. It’s my first build ever, so there may be parts that could be improved or be replaced with cheaper parts. But it’s mine, so I take pride in it


#316

That’s awesome my build I’m doing is the exact same except power supply,graphics card and case.


#317

Tbh, I just grabbed the power supply that had the right amount of voltage, I don’t even know if it is a good one lol.

As for the RX 580 I just found a sweet deal on one for 220$ so I jumped on it


#318

The power supply is probably fine I’m going with a 650 w because case has a few extra led fans and for graphics I’m going with a gtx 1060 ti. But my first gaming pc I bought from a guy who worked at a computer renaissance it had a duo core processes and a gtx 460 and a corsair 450 w power supply the damn duo core CPU and gtx 460 use more power than the current fx 4350 and 750 ti


#319

Lol I’m so amazed at how fast tech advances


#320

Yeah I was too when I started to look to upgrade it. I’m going to continue to use that same power supply even for the next upgrade.


#321

Hopefully I can do the same.

But the next upgrade for me will be in many years
