    Ahh here is my last post from December, smh I was cocky... But broke at the time. http://forums.windowscentral.com/sho...d.php?t=398448

    My specs were off a bit due to me constantly changing parts. I was also a noob, lol

    I no longer have that CPU fan, I'm now using the Kraken X41 Water Cooler to keep the temperature low.

    Update for my GPU

    Just ordered the MSI GTX 970 4GB OC Edition Twin Frozr for $199.99 on ebay from a guy I ordered from many times. I was going to get the MSI GTX 1060 but I changed my mind and the 970 will definitely work for now.

    Yea, but I don't know when I'll get one though. I want the i7 4790K. If I can have this, I'll be done upgrading my PC for a few years.

    Edited: I'm thrilled that my GTX 970 will be here tomorrow!!! A few days earlier than expected.

    Nice! I have a average gaming PC, but it works since I only play lite games. Lol

    Which color scheme did you get for the 970? I like the Black with white, and the black with red ones.

    The best looking one... lmao! I picked the red & black Gaming OC, I picked this cause it matched everything else that's in my PC and I love the design... This is the exact one I'm getting, I took it straight from my eBay purchases.


    Edited: I'll post back tomorrow around..... 4:30, 5:00 is when I get home

    Looks like I won't get my 970 till Friday or Saturday... This is actual great because if they would've left it at the door, it would've got ruined! It was pouring like crazy. The box might protect it for awhile but it won't get protected from heavy intense rain for a few hours. It's crazy though, everytime I order anything, they will never ring the doorbell or ask for me to sign anything, I guess today was an exception. Lol

    Just updated my PSU also. I just ordered a Corsair TX650 80 Plus Bronze

    Nice! I'm saving up money to upgrade my PC as well. I probably won't get anything higher than a 500W PSU most likely an 80+ Bronze or Silver. How much did the TX650 cost?

    $34.99 with free shipping. It's coming from Pennsylvania so it'll take maybe a week to get here, but I'm in no rush.

    That's a crazy good deal, it goes for $120 on Corsair's website! With that much power, are you over clocking anything? Or using 2 970s in a SLI?
    09-29-2016 09:12 PM
  16. Josiah23's Avatar
    Definitely not overclocking anything, no need to, plus my CPU isn't an unlocked version, if it was then maybe since It's being water cooled. But no overclocking. No SLI either (I don't have the money for another 970...right now, lol) I'm future proofing it for anything else I may add. Plus it's like you said, a great deal, lol. I'll sell my current 550 PSU for about $40-$50 since it's like-new.

    I won't even get to REALLY use my 970 until monday, I have to work Friday - Sunday. So by the time I use my new gpu, my power supply should be close by. I just bought it and now it's already saying shipped!! They don't kid around when they say extremely fast shipping, lmao.

    I like how USPS online package tracker says my package has been "Delivered left with individual". I don't care what time I have to go to work tomorrow(9am)... I'm using it as soon as I get out tonight(10pm).

    Got her today but...... I can't use it until my new PSU gets here, since it has the right connectors (2x 6+2 pins) and it needs 1 6-pin and 1 8-pin.

    OUTDATED: This is no longer in my main PC build, I've upgraded to a MSI 980TI

    Yes I did :-) I got it yesterday and put it inside my PC earlier today along with my 970. I'm trying to sell my old PSU and GPU as soon as possible.
