It’s been for a while since i built my last PC. In the past i was building PC’s for my kids, friends and neighbors but there is more than 5 years since i haven’t messed with these things.
Well, yesterday i build a new workstation for myself and ladies and gentlemen, i can say that i built a beast of computer.
For the truth’s sake, i cannot stop wondering how powerful the new hardware became in the last few years. In the meantime i was mainly using my old ASUS laptop. Core 2 Duo btw lol.
Wow guys, the new i7 chip-set is a monster. The SSD thing is fast as hell. The fans are super, super quiet (more quieter than my laptop yeah they are) … everything is like a dream to me.
This is the list of components i used (they all work in a perfect harmony by the way):
1. Intel i7-4770 3.40GHz
2. Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo
3. ASUS Gaming Series MAXIMUS VI HERO
4. HDD 1TB WesternDigital 7200rpm
5. SSD 120GB Samsung 840 EVO
6. ASUS GTX650TI-PH-1GD5
7. Kingstone 16GB (2 x 8) DDR3 2133MHz HyperX XMP Beast
8. Gigabyte Sumo Alpha case
9. CoolerMaster Silent Pro M II 520W 80plus bronze
10. SAMSUNG Internal DVD-RW H/H
I also bought a headset CAVIMANUS HS-G700V and guess what, it’s also amazing – highly recommended!!!
The only Con is the price. Not sure if you knew but building a PC in this way is way more expensive than a Laptop with the same hardware (plus laptop comes with monitor and everything).
Believe it or not i paid about $2k for these components. For the same price i could have bought the latest ASUS G750JX with i7 Haswell, GTX780 and SSD 250GB.
However laptop does not suit my needs and my desk space lol
