Have any of you ever built your own desktop computer? How difficult is it?
I'm gonna do it REALLY soon since my laptop is seriously holding my productivity back with animation, drawing, programming etc... I was  maybe just looking for some recommendations from those that have built a computer and what would best suit the work I do.
Thanks in advance guys \(^_^)/ :3

I've done it 3 times and it's fairly easy if you know where the components go, I don't consider myself a smartass either. Getting the motherboard into the case is probably the most difficult part for me, the cable management is most annoying but you gotta have good airflow inside your case. Before you build, research what you're buying, ask around different forums if the components are compatible, hell you can ask me too. What's your budget?

Specs:

Asus Z87 Pro motherboard
Intel I7 4770k
GTX 970 x 2 in SLI
32GBs of RAM
750 WATT Power Supply
1TB x 3 hard drives
NZXT H440 Case
Windows 8.1

I'm soooooo jealous

Crying or Very sad


But yeah what NS said. Make sure to research information like socket compatibility between your motherboard and CPU as well as your motherboard and RAM.

You're gonna wanna invest into a good graphics card and cpu probably, but I'd say invest in the motherboard. There's no use running really strong CPUs/GPUs if your motherboard's BUS size is too small to handle the load.

A quad core i7, 2 relatively high end GPUs, 32GB of RAM (i'm guessing DDR3) and 3 1TB HDDs O_O Holy shit man isn't that a bit overkill? I'd love to have that but damn. You shoulda got an SSD instead of a third hard drive I think though, put the OS and important programs in there to speed shit up even more.

Surprisingly it isn't as overkill as you think, After Effects can use up a lot of RAM with the stuff I'm doing, not to mention I'll have Flash + 3ds Max open + Google Chrome with 20 tabs xD that shit struggled on 8GBs of RAM. So it isn't just for gaming, it's for rendering and multi-tasking. I sold my GTX 670 and invested in two 970s for a good deal. The motherboard, CPU and HDDs were already in there, I also had the PSU too. I bought another BenQ 144hz monitor so I have two monitors running to increase productivity, I can also game on Nvidia surround at Ultra settings 80+FPS. I can invest in a SSD some other time but I'm fine with what I have right now xD

I don't even know where to start, that's the issue. I guess it's just a matter of lurking more. I'll refer to you if I'm stuck.

@Rapid

Honestly bro, once you have this stuff it isn't really that great. Yeah the monitor has Gsync but I need to upgrade the firmware on it.

@ɹǝɐןןıʌ

I recommend going here - https://pcpartpicker.com/

I wish I knew about this place earlier, you can pick your parts from different sites at the best deals, this website will some of the work for you. You can also look at other people's builds too.

My advice to you -

Go for an Intel i5 CPU
A GTX 760 or GTX 960, if you can, GTX 970
You'll need an ATX motherboard with the socket 1150, I would probably go for Gigabyte Z97P.
You'll want at least a 500 watt power supply
An ATX case. There are different sizes - Micro ATX and Mini ITX

Here's something I put together for you quickly -

The Conversation Thread - Page 4 Untitl11

Costs around 907 dollars + you'll want to buy an optical dvd drive, it can be a USB one (external or internal) + Windows 7/8/8.1 Disc

This is just to give you an idea. You can either invest in more RAM and go for a cheaper graphics card, or vice versa.

AND your monitor is GSync. My friend has one, it's hella smooth. And yeah it's not that great he says. He can probably play GTA 5 at max settings, but it's not that great he says. lmao

Also, NDS

I don't know if you've ever been to Reddit before but there's a great subreddit there called /r/buildapc and if you look on the side they have guides and shit for you to read. And if you have questions you can ask the people there.

They are VERY helpful and VERY nice about it so don't be afraid to ask them anything. You do have to sign up to reddit in order to ask questions and comment btw.

This is true, but as soon as Skyrim goes over 60 FPS the physics engine goes nuts xD it's so funny. I'll tell you what though 120FPS > 60FPS, such a big difference.

Psh all that means is that you need to install heavier mods. lmfao

Yeah my same friend with the GSync monitor also plays his games at 120FPS. It's just not fair man.

I wasn't really keeping up with the game, but that demo was really fun. The movement feels really nice. I wish they at least let you play in the tutorial whenever so you can screw around the park place.
