I'd suggest getting a 660, they're pretty cheap and really good man. It was my last card, I have a 3570k also.


I'll probably upgradse eventually to something like a 780 as they're still pretty powerful but don't cost as much as the 900 series.

To be fair, building a computer isn't too hard .The biggest factor in being unable to build a computer is the fear that you are doing it wrong, really.
Everything is made to only fit in one way, so unless you really use brute force it's actually really hard to screw up.

Although a good second is choosing the right components, but a good computerstore will always help you with that.


I guess it's just the whole idea seems difficult, or I guess it sounds difficult because making your own computer is hard??


Building a computer is like playing with legos, there's only one spot where you can put it on and it will only fit there, honestly the hardest part is doing some serious research on the hardware you're going to get to build it, a lot of people, for example, buy a really expensive graphic card, and then they go and get a mediocre processor, so it ends up decreasing dramatically the graphic card's performance, which is what people call bottleneck, i would absolutely not recommend going to computerstores for this type of stuff because they will OBVIOUSLY give you a bias opinion and push you expensive shit, if you're insecure about it, just look up basic videos of people installing graphic cards, removing this and that, and try it out on your own, like, remove your graphic card clean it up a little bit ( i'd use a paint brush), the only thing i'd recommend you not tweaking with until you're more comfortable is your Motherboard and your processor, but even those 2 are a piece of cake once you're used to it, so, get intimate with your PC and soon enough you'll be doing it with your eyes closed

660 is a pretty terrible idea, if you really wanna save money, get an AMD card and overclock the shit out of it.

No thanks. I've always had Nvidia since my first proper gaming PC. I'm not about to switch now. Just as a note, my first proper graphics card was a 9800GT.

Hmmm I'm torn. I think you're awesome because you like coffee [im drinking a cup right now] buuut you use a Mac hmmm :-P. Custom building a computer is like putting together an easy puzzle. Just get the parts and fit them together then install an OS. With proper research and planning to make sure everything is compatible it's really pretty easy. They even sell full kits on newegg.com for example which include motherboard and processor etc...combos to take some of the guesswork out.

16GB RAM Macbook pro retina

Bought it in early 2013,very powerful and necessary for architecture programs like Adobe master collection,Autocad 3d modeling and other 3d software. At $3,000 bucks, way more than I spend on anything,but I won't be buying another computer for a long time.

I own 2 Macbook Pros. One is a mid 2012 model, so not the Retina display, and the other one (the one I'm using now to type this) is a Retina display model. They're both 15" and they both look brand new.

Custom Built about 3 years old now

I don't remember the exact specs :

i5-3570k OC'd to 4.3 ghz
Asus Sabertooth Mobo
16 gigs of ddr3 1600
EVGA GTX 670 SC FTW
2 x 128 gig SSD
1 x 1 TB HDD

I payed around $1400 for everything when I was building it. Probably could have gone $200 lower if I had a microcenter nearby, unfortunately closest one is about 150 miles away.
