I'm buying and building my first desktop lads
It's gonna be a family desktop for my lil family (IE: Me, My wife, and my Son.)
But it's finally happening
I have built it from scratch. This is the final sharpened and honed list so farhttp://pcpartpicker.com/user/Toiletchan/saved/JpQRBm
After 21 years of being a poorfag 15 fps laptop fag it feels so good
Debate me before I buy it all tomorrow
What anime is that?
Remember not to leave those sort of semi-pornographic files on your kid's computer!
Um, are you going to buy a keyboard/mouse too, or do you already have them?>>388666
It's fine as long as they are encrypted. I use encfs
to encrypt my porn/chan directory, for the rare situations when I have visitors.
yeah, i'm using them right now
they're alright and very cheap. A Logitech K120 Keyboard and some random old silent mouse.>>388666
Don't worry, no bad images. Anime however may be questionable.
(Gettin dat 1080 monitor tho for perfect resolution)
there are loud mice?
That's not THAT much for a computer
Pirating is morally wrong.
>>388708>Pirating is morally wrong.
You should use software that respects your freedoms. Windows is proprietary software. It is literally Satan incarnate.
Who told you about that wtf>>388709
I don't want to learn programming though.
Meh, I still think it's a reasonable budget. 1000-ish is kinda in my opinion around the threshold of where "you get what you pay for" starts falling off. Much higher and you're paying like 500 dollars for parts you could have lived without and which make only a marginal difference, lower and you're making performance sacrifices that I personally wouldn't want to make.
They're dead. Except one. and the older ones.
Rip my poor babbi rabbi ;-;>>388768>>388763
They called today while I was at work. The card is fixed. Wew time to buy the rest. IT'S HAPPENING
gone but not forgotten.
My poor little jewish merchant chicken…
I bet he's dreaming of computer fans and shekels.
Rest in pepperonis my little buddy.
why get a mini itx card with a full tower case
Other than that looks alright. I don't think you'll see much of a performance different from a fullsize GTX 1070, aside from probably worse cooling.
Yeah but think of the AIRFLOW BRAH.
That and if I ever want to upgrade to larger shit I have the option ya'know?
You could fit the motherboard and everything attached to it inside the fucking power supply.
mirin that air flow though tbh
>>388856>not just downloading your ram
retarded casual bet you buy graphics too
I wonder if car antifreeze would work well in a water cooled rig.
Ethylene glycol doesn't react badly with any metals or plastics as far as I know.
Most commercial water cooling solutions are basically this already, but idk if car antifreeze may have some other additives that could be detrimental?
I believe the worst you can do is to have the wrong combination of metals in the setup to cause galvanic corrosion.
Distilled water should do fine to prevent fouling.
Wow a post that made sense
No pictures but we built it after an agonizing 4 hours. With the help of my brother in law we got the legos put together just right. Good cable management, great airflow, and the mini mobo/gpu large case meme works amazing and it very very nice looking. This was a great thing.
Too bad they fucked up shipping the OS and no I gotta call them and get them to send me it again, darn it. So basically another week before I can use the actual thing.
>>>>>he bought windows
What would you have done?
But I actually want to play video games. and I know nothing of programming. Seems like little gain for A LOT of effort.
Also can't pirate sorry.
u fokin wot lmao
A legal copy will get you farther than a pirated copy with how Windows intends to roll with Win10 currently.
>>389210>alternatively not used windows
I pirated 7 and upgraded, but they aren't doing the free upgrade thing anymore I think, so rip that.
I don't feel bad at all pirating windows shit because fuck microsoft tbh.
And anyway I'm pretty sure you can buy a digital copy of it. Use another computer and slap that shit on a usb and just type in the key they give you. You don't need to ship anything. gg
>your copy of windows might contain a virus
you can also get a free (((official))) version by pirating windows 8 and then using the free upgrade thats still aroundhttp://www.pcgamer.com/you-can-still-upgrade-to-windows-10-for-free-thanks-to-loophole/
Hardihar, if anyone here thinks Windows shouldn't be pirated because of some sort of integrity they're smoking some heavy doobies. Win10 is a fucking disgrace, and so was 8. Only difference being 8 was UI unfriendly, and Win 10 is just plain out user unfriendly. Personally I'd stick to whatever OS you prefer and just emulate if it's getting too old to run that new fangled stuff.
Don't need a disc though. If you have a functioning PC all you need is 4gig USB to use as a portable boot. Windows hands out the install files like candy. That's nice at least.
I can run Age Of Empires 1 at full colour!
So it weeks but now I need internet access and my wireless adapter works detects and connects to the network but it goes in and out a lot even though it's at 5 bars so wtf. The best I got was a firefox webpage and that took 5 years. Now it's going in and out and just acting odd, no internet, dial up speed, and general fuckery. I mean what is going on.
No it works on everything else. I'm using it right now. I'm talking about the new usb wireless adapter I bought. Router is fine. Isp is fine.
I think it might be the adapter or the computer settings. It's giving me a bad headache.
I'm using the computer right now.
Lightning fast speeds, amazing overall. Just formatting the 2TB hard drive, as the OS is on the SSD.
Wireless works excellent and fine.
I'm 99% sure it was our internet provider because sometimes they have retarded outtages like this where it gets all funky.
Thank the Lord, this was stressing me out.
JUST WOKE UP IN A HAZE AT 7 AM TO FIND OUT TRACER GIFTED ME A 'DEFINITIVE' GAME THAT LOOKS REALLY EXPENSIVE
I need to download it now!
THANK YOU AND HEY I DIDN'T DESERVE THIS YOU NEGRO.
I still sorta hate myself for getting a desktop anyways. Let alone a free game bundle that was probs like $120
Meh, you finally get to enjoy a bunch of shit that was just out of shit. I think what he's trying to say is grats nigga, have fun.
*that was just out of reach
fuck typing right now
wait for ryzen
MAI ERESJON HAS RYZEN, BRANG ME TEH HOEL TO PUT IN?!
