What do you guys think of my new PC build



It's hypothetical at this point. I should be purchasing next month but wondered what you guys thought. Should I save some cash somewhere or put more in elsewhere?

I'm not very familiar with AMD parts, but 8 cores @ 4.0ghz is pretty beast. You could probably save and get a cheaper processor and just overclock it to 4.0 ghz anyway. And i don't know what your plans are in terms of how high you want to overclock, but you could also save a few bucks and get a standard heat sink/fan instead of the Hydro.

Unless you really want those things. I mean I have parts that are way over the top in mine, but that's just because I like tinkering and upgrading.

Yeah it's getting overclocked, the water cooling I've deemed necessary. The 8350 can reach 5.0GHz very safely I hear

I was originally going to upgrade my current pc, but I've just sold one I built and if I sell this one too, I'll have the cash for that build no problem.

I'm pretty sure it's the best I can do for 1k. I went for the AMD over an i5 to help with rendering videos, and because (apparently) future titles are going to be optimised pretty well for the AMD processors and hyper threading. For example I'm quite sure Battlefield 3 makes use of this.

I'm more of an intel/nvidia kind of guy.

But that is an awesome build for 1k.

But... I like Windows 8

You know there's a fair few games run about 10fps faster on it, and it's generally faster anyway, especially on an SSD.

I upgraded to it ages ago and think it's good. What don't you like about it? Too pretty and colourful?

Gotta say I've been converted to Windows 8. I've got a custom 3rd party start menu that bypasses the Metro theme and loads straight to the desktop (MS are going to add the start button at some point, after lots of negative feedback about its exclusion).

Everything just works quicker, the system boots in 17 seconds, programs load quicker, barely any load time on games.
