Quite a generous person, I wish I had them in my life.
And I'm just here sitting with my Corsair STRAFE keyboard, Corsair M65 mouse, Corsair MM600 mousepad, and then this laptop I have. 4GB of DDR3-1333 RAM, Intel Celeron Dual Core clocked at 2.16GHz with 64GB of VRAM.
Yeah you get the point. I have great peripherals but horrible hardware.
Very, very true.
I think the reason behind that is that Corsair as a brand is more successful (their keyboards, mice, coolers, headsets, PSUs, cooling brackets, etc.) of which NZXT doesn't have a market as big as Corsair's, or even a market at all, thus giving Corsair enough money to hire people that special in technology development.
Well, NZXT is a company with architects and mechanics, not technological engineers. So it's a given the software would suck lol

they need more rgb tho
Unrelated to the topic but,
I can tell by your name that you're fairly young, perhaps 12 to 16. If you are, I want to say welcome to the master race! Great job on not choosing console only!
Why would you call a build "The Titan" without featuring a Titan GPU?
You should probably get a 1060 if you plan to game at 1440p, or an RX 470 if you just want 1080p.
Choose your own case. I want you to buy the one that looks good to you, not me
The 950 is holding back the CPU. It's very difficult to explain how bottlenecks work.
I apologize for the 60 day late reply.
Hi! It's me again.
I admit my fault about the PSU. It is perfectly fine.
However, the 4GB GTX 960 does perform better than an r9 380. If it goes over that 2GB limit on the original card, frame rates drop significantly.
Now you have overclocked the CPU and GPU reasonably, right?
Also, since you have an ATX build, you should invest in the 212 EVO soon, as that will have much cooler and (depending on the silicon lottery) higher clocks than the M9i, thus squeezing out more performance for the CPU.
And where did you get that 6600k for $110? That is a steal!
I'd recommend investing in a better, fully mechanical keyboard (the mouse is perfectly fine) with Cherry MX Red switches-- real Cherry MX Red switches. Of course, it will be at a hefty price, but it will last for years. Cheers!
By the way, the GTX 950 is severely bottlenecking the i5 6500.
dude that r9 380 was a rip off!
I got a $210 GPU and I can run Club Penguin 4K@60 on ultra settings!
I know I'm quite a bit late, but the RX 480 does have better performance/dollar.
The RX 480 is still the go-to choice for budget gamers.
the lenny face ascii didn't work
it's also kinda sad how the RX 480 should be more powerful than the GTX 1060 based on the leaks, but the AMD line of cards are not well optimized in most games.
is it because of the power draw issue? because that was fixed in a driver update. (Well, it does consume 150W, and the GTX 1070 also consumes 150W, so...)
And if those people just have that money laying around, which is about half of what my father currently has, why don't they just donate? Do they have to buy an overpriced card? Or maybe it was a spoiled kid with rich parents. Either way, it's kinda dumb.
It would probably be better just to go off of the pattern that has been going on for the past few years. Nvidia announces their high-end cards, then soon later their mid-teir cards.
AMD announces their mid-tier cards, then their high-end cards. And as always, Nvidia beats AMD for their anti-competitive nature, sadly.
BUT LIKE FOR REAL THE PRICES WHEN THEY FIRST WERE RELEASED WERE RAINING FROM ******* HELL. I SAW A GTX 1070 FOR LITERALLY OVER ONE THOUSAND DOLLARS IT WAS ******* CRAZY
That is, unless you have a 144hz 1080p monitor, which the GTX 1070 will use its capabilities to the finest.
OK-- this is a great build-- and you're an awesome father-- but there are some things wrong with this build:
Power Supply isn't 80+ certified
Instead of cheaping out on the PSU, get a more reliable 80+ Bronze at the very least.
AMD GPUs have much less performance capability due to Nvidia patents and co-developing
Instead of the r9 380, I would recommend getting a 4gb GTX 960 for just about the same price. (Remember to overclock the card!) Also that backplate is useless. You don't even see it.
WAAAYY too much money was spent on the motherboard. I mean like-- way too much.
Your balancing of prices is absolutely horrid! Your motherboard is the second most expensive thing in this build. That should be your CPU (and maybe SSD)!
250GB of storage is way too little-- especially for a young child
Instead of that 250gb SSD, I'd recommend to get a 1TB WD Blue HDD for about $50. After that's done, you can purchase a Corsair H60 for about $60-- or a Corsair h110i v2 if you want to spend about $40 more-- and then overclock the CPU to a solid 3.9 to 4.2 Ghz clock speed (with an h110i v2 it can be up to 4.7 Ghz, which may not sound like much, but it can give you a boost of almost 25fps in open world games like GTA V, Fallout 4, and Minecraft.
And that case isn't very well reviewed. You can spend about $20 more to get a better reputation case: the NZXT s340
Now these aren't rude comments, just feedback for your next PC build.
