The case and RAM together were $300. My GPU was $500 when I bought it, but 99% of aftermarket GPUs are RGB nowadays. I think my water cooler was... $175? My mobo has built in RGB stuff as well, but it's only the line down the side anyways.


i guess that doesn't seem too bad, depending on the gpu model

It's a GTX 980. At the time it was top of the line. I'm gonna wait for the 11xx's to come out before I make a decision on what to upgrade to.

a sound decision

my gpu came out in 2015 and i've been tempted to upgrade to a 1080i, but on the other hand, it's only a bottleneck in a handful of games and the 11xx series is probably less than a year away >.<

Nvidia typically launches their new cards just before or just after the holidays. I think when I bought my 980 the 980 ti came out maybe a week or two later. awdood;

lol

though unless they run into manufacturing or supply issues, i would be surprised if volta came out as late as next holiday season

pascal came in early summer 2016

good god myface;

why are those 128gb ssds so expensive, you should be able to find ~240gb ones for those prices

also you could probably find 3200mhz ram for around that price, and for ryzen you really do want the fastest ram you can afford

the crucial one was like brand new when I got it. goowan But I think I only paid $40 for the Sandisk one. And for the ram, the 3000mhz was $30 or so off, and I'll never even need the 3200 lol. My board can only take these up to 2800 anyways.

pls excuse the cordstorm at the bottom near my PSU, installing my GPU was done in a rush. I'm gonna open it back up last this week to clean it up.

what cpu do you have again? Ryzen 2xxx are getting stellar reviews rn, and GPUs on the secondhand market are dropping like a stone. I thinka  1080 these days are... about $400? I plan on picking up a 2nd 1080 and a SLI bridge for funsies.

i5 6500, which in retrospect was a poor choice even when i bought it

i should have gone for at least the 6600k, that would have probably kept me comfortable for significantly longer

oh well i've learned my lesson: never take advice from [glow=black,2,300]r*ddit[/glow] ugly;

it doesn't really make sense for me to upgrade to anything right now though because gaming performance on the ryzen side isn't nearly $400 (cpu + mobo) better than what the 6500 offers, and on the intel side, i would be crazy to """upgrade""" from a 14nm cpu to another 14nm cpu lol

i'll wait for intel's 10nm cannon lake to FINALLY arrive in 2019 (assuming they don't delay again) before i seriously consider a cpu upgrade

on the gpu side, i have a fury, and really its biggest limitation is the 4gb of vram

though again, upgrading now seems silly because pascal is so old and gpu prices so absurd and nothing short of a 1080ti would make any sense as an upgrade from a fury

so i'll just be patient and wait4volta

but it means i'll be stuck on this build for at least another year before i make any significant changes to it

[spoiler]

but honestly i play so few cutting-edge games at launch that i hardly even feel its limitations lol

in truth, i'm just a consumerist whore :'([/spoiler]
