Hey what’s up everyone johnnythegeek here! It’s been a while since I have posted a video on here and this is my latest build guide for those looking to game or do general productivity.
This is a long 3-in-1 video from start to finish. The only thing I did not include is going to the motherboard manufacturers website to download the drivers. One thing I wanted to note was that I shot all of this in 1080p @ 60 frames per second and it looks really smooth. Some parts where I speed things up don’t look that smooth but it is better than 30fps in my opinion.
The parts might seem outdated from 2014 but at the time of this posting in LATE 2015, there hasn’t been a new chipset or CPU class that has replaced it. Even going into 2016 there would probably be a new CPU and chipset that is more power efficient and requires DDR4 memory. There might also be a 950ti by the time you see this so get that instead if it’s only $20-$30 more.
