It's certainly not a supercomputer, but what I really hate is picking up WD black as the HDD when there's such a big ssd to put all the games on. You really don't need the highest performance hdd then and they tend to make more noise than blues and greens.

I bought a 2TB WD Black and hate the noise it makes. I finally upgraded to Win 10 and there's one feature I like, the ability to make your HDD's park after a set time.

Its a good pc, great even. Very similar to what i have and i hardly have problems with it.

However its not a super computer nor very impressive for a supposedly large reviewing company. Most things there are almost 2 years old, and IGN should be able to get the cutting edge stuff without trouble.

I checked prices online, and assumed they were retarded enough to just go with the first options they saw. All prices are from Amazon, because I also assumed they're fucking retarded enough to pay for Prime shipping, and as it turns out their article links to Amazon for most of this shit.

Intel i5-7600k: $229.99
GTX 1070 FE: $557.99
ASUS ROG Maximus IX Hero: $199.99
G.SKILL TridentZ RGB Series 16GB: $215.96
Samsung 850 EVO 1TB: $327.99
WD Black 6TB: $234.99
EVGA SuperNOVA 650 G3: $99.99
805 Infinity: $250.00
AURORA RGB Case Fan: $89.99
NZXT Kraken X62: $156.89
NZXT Internal USB Hub: $23.75

They fucking spent $2,386.54 on their "Supercomputer" that can run the same shit mine can, and it was only $1600. Jesus fucking christ IGN is retarded.

>>393198802
>They could have easily saved money on stupid shit like 6TB of HDD and bought a more powerful graphics card.

Silly IGN. You cant review console games on a PC.
>>
>>393199054

"i7" is a meaningless marketing term.
An i7 can have anything from 2 to 18 cores.

Why do you need 7TB of storage to begin with unless you're planning on using it as a server
Get a 2-3TB drive and a 250GB SSD for the OS and whatever game you're actively playing.

Granted X62 has 6 years of warranty, but you're pretty much guaranteed to need it since it's apparently has a very common issue with the pump failing. When I did my research there are far more people dissatisfied with x62 pump perfomance than any other liquid cooler. I will give proprs to NZXT though, aside from this X62 is a very good AIO.

that said this is kind of retarded, if you're buying a 1TB HDD and a water cooler might as well as go for an i7 and a 1080
>>
>>393200281
Always buy directly from the manufacturer, never from outlets and consumer stores. You oftentimes can get "special" treatment because of it too, since normies don't understand the concept of cutting out the middleman and getting good quality shit for far cheaper from the people that actually make the hardware. Plus you got an i7 which is a meme processor.

I can't wait until the 4k 144hz monitors are affordable.My 1440p 144hz predator is perfect. My 4k 60 hz Asus is disappointing.
>>
>>393196863
Reasonable for anything at 1440p. Only thing I'd object to is the EVO instead of PRO, much shorter warranty period, and significantly shorter MTTF (mean time to failure); assuming you want a long-term system drive, which you'll later use for backup, it's worth shelling out a bit more for a product closer to enterprise grade.

This is true. Decided I'd rather have 144fps than 1440p so I went with the 1070 when it was almost $600 cheaper. Choose GPU based on 1. your budget 2. prefferred monitor settings.
