My 2nd Gaming PC that I plan to build

I've been thinking a lot if I would build a new gaming PC or upgrade my existing once since I only have one PC I use it more on multitasking at hand. Like I used my PC at work and I also use it for gaming and I also use it for watching some stuff. It's hard to have only one PC that do a lot of things but you can't do them one by one for example if you wanted to play a game for an hour but your skype notification keeps on beeping out.

So I decided to make a separate PC dedicated just for gaming and entertainment stuff and I live the rest of my other PC for work and browsing. This time I would build a Hashwell gaming rig because I have an Ivy Bridge. But before I decided to build a gaming rig, there are new video cards that were out right now such as the 700 series from Nvidia. My top choice before was either a GTX 770 or GTX 780 to replace my 1 year old GTX 680. Money is of no concern for me to build a gaming rig.

But since right now AMD has been releasing there new video card line like the R9 series that replaces the HD series. To my surprise the R9 series is a lot more cheaper than Nvidia has to offer the GTX 770 or GTX 780 is really expensive here like it cost around 18000 to 30000 Php pesos convert that to dollar like 400$ to 600$. While the R9 here only cost around let's say for example the cheapest R9 280X cost around 14000 pesos (300$) really half the price from Nvidia. To think about it the last AMD graphics card that have was the HD 6950 that was dead long ago because my PSU got fried. I've got two AMD graphics card before the HD 4890, and HD 6950 and switched back again to Nvidia right now I have a Palit GTX 680 4gb Jetstream because of the Physx.  Well Physx I guess is just a marketing ploy to lure them into the trap of buying an Nvidia cards which other competitors don't have and it works.

Well anyways right now my top choice for the video card was the R9 280X and since recently AMD release R9 290X which they say is a Titan killer or a GTX 780 killer it's out of my budget. So I bought an R9 280x and I will be planning on a crossfire mode. Last month October 2013 I bought an AMD in XFX R9 280x DD and an Asus Maximus Gene VI going to build a powerful Micro-Atx rig for my gaming machine.

For this month alone and in addition to my recent purchase going to plan on buying the following stuff:

PROCESSOR: Intel® Core™ i5-4670K
RAM: G.Skill RipjawsX DDR3 1600 4GBx2kit CL9 Red F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL
SSD: Plextor M5 Pro 128gb
CASE: Bitfenix Phenom M
PSU: Corsair RM850w CP-9020056-NA

I've choosen the i5 4670k because it's really good on games and I don't need hyper-threading like what the i7 has and plus it is much cheaper. I also have chosen an 850w power supply I really hope that this psu will handle crossfire well or will be enough for the time being. I've been researching on the PSU recommendation for the R9 280X and they say I guess the 800w will be good enough because the R9 280X is just a re-branded HD 7970 GHz Edition that's what they say and that's what I read about. I don't care as long as it is a good card that can handle everything maxed out and I'm happy with it.

For the Case I really like the Bitfenix Phenom the case really reminds me of a good o'l toaster the Case was cute and it's something like of an eye catching stuff when you see one. I really hope that case would fit in a 10 to 11" graphics card.   

So far here's the complete list round up on my planned second Gaming PC:

PROCESSOR: Intel® Core™ i5-4670K
MOTHERBOARD: Asus Maximus VI Gene
VIDEO CARD: XFX R9 280X DD
HSF: Corsair H80i
RAM: G.Skill RipjawsX DDR3 1600 4GBx2kit CL9 Red F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL
SSD: Plextor M5 Pro 128gb
HD: 2TB WD Green
CASE: Bitfenix Phenom M
PSU: Corsair RM850w CP-9020056-N

SPECIFICATIONS:

Origin: United States Army Air Force
Type: Attack Aircraft / VTOL
Crew: 2

Witney Engine 43,000 lbs.
Armament: 1 76mm Canon Buster, 6 Hell-Fire Missile,

The United States Army Air Force is in need of a new COIN Aircraft or Counter INsurgency or CAS Close Air Support type of aircraft able to counter a growing number of insurgency in the border. They came up with a VTOL type design of Aircraft that can be able to land on any grounds with
out any run-way. For this type they can be able to move faster and freely to support the troops on the ground with enough air power to secure the area. This are some of the prototype designs that they have come up with as a contender to replace the present Fairchild Republic A-10 Thunderbolt II.

My First Haul of the Year 2013

Finally I've scored some neat upgrade to my computer and bought this a Palit GeForce GTX 680 4GB Jetstream. Gonna be building an Intel Game machine this year that will replace my 2 or 3 years old AMD 1055t X6 Thuban that I've used everyday from gaming to work. This is the first step and it's pretty expensive upgrade bought this one on a reseller shop here on our area Quest Logic Tech and bought it for around 24800 Philippine Pesos I think that's around 600+ in US dollars.



My plan to build this is within 3 months time and this is the start of it. So I've started first getting the video card first and then the next month would be the processor and mother board. Then on the 3rd month is the rest of the parts like the cooler, ssd, pc case, memory, and the power supply. I don't want to buy the whole package as a full blast instantly I like to buy it one at a time because I still have other responsibility on expenses or I might go broke.



So basically my plan was to build a Mini-iTX game type small quiet but packs a lot of punch on games. I'll be listing out the parts that I would gonna purchase for the next few months so the parts:

This one gonna probably buy it on February

Mobo, lga 1155, Gigabyte GA Z77N WIFI Mini-itx Z77 Motherboard
CPU, lga 1155, Intel Core i7 3770 Ivy Bridge 3.4 4 LGA 1155 BX80637I73770


So for about this one gonna probably buy it on March

Cooler, Corsair Hydro Series H80 High Performance Liquid CPU Cooler
PSU, XFX PRO750W Core Edition Full Wired 80+ Bronze
Casing, Bitfenix Prodigy mini-itx Chassis
SSD, Intel SSD 330 Series 180GB SSDSC2CT180A3K5 2.5


And the rest of the parts like memory and dvd writer I'll be salvaging it on my previous setup to cut the cost part.

I'll soon have an upgrade starting with my Video Card gonna replace it with the
powerful GTX 680 4GB ver. and I'll also replace my Motherboard with a 990FX.
And also my Power Supply as well with a 1200w of it. I also plan to add up an
additional SSD with 256GB of it I'm thinking of the Corsair Neutron. Then adding
up another 2TB of Hard Disk storage. Also planned on having it water cooled with Corsair
H100 so theonly remaining parts that I retained there was my processor, ram, and
the optical drive. It will take me up 3 months to combine since I won't be building it
full blast because I still have some other budgets to handle. I don't know if I would
replace my Mid-Tower case or just retained it.

My First Drawing for 2013

Here's my first drawing of the year 2013 I started to draw again this time I've used the technique and the real power of the Pen-tool. Once you have set up your sketch in your main layer make another layer and above it that's where you will draw or ink on what you have sketched below. Make your main layer opacity up to just 50% so it will be easy for you to trace up your sketch up. After that grab your pen-tool and start to follow the line of your sketch. After you follow the line of your sketch hit on right click of your mouse but don't forget to set your brush to your desired liking. And once you right click on your mouse choose the stroke path un-click the simulate pressure and then on the tool you select brush and then hit enter. Hope this small trick will make your photoshopping skills to the next level. Enjoy and have fun drawing.
