A few months ago, my wife and I had a baby. Building a baby was a lot more fun than building a computer, but the maintenance on the baby is way more intense! Because I didn’t have much time for gaming anymore, I decided to trade my GTX 1060 to my younger brother in exchange for his 750ti.
However, and I’m sure too many of you can identify with me on this one, I wasn’t about to let a little thing like “not having time for gaming” keep me away from building a new PC. I decided I needed to build a (mostly) new PC around this 750ti. Specifically, a PC that would be real pretty to look at while I buy diapers and Google things like “is my baby’s head too big?”.
So, I ended up getting myself a new case, psu, cooler, ram, and fans to complement that sweet 750ti.
I’m thinking it needs more LL120s on the bottom, though I’m pretty sure I would just end up setting those to exhaust as well and then the whole computer would implode.
Anyway, let me know what y’all think. What would you add next?
PS: I don’t mean to rag on the 750ti too much. It was actually my card originally and I had given it to my brother a few years ago when I upgraded to the 1060.
Edit: Thank you all for the overwhelmingly positive response. Since I have your attention and I’m one of those dads, I’m going to make you look at my baby. Meet Ellie. I’m even prouder of her than I am of the pc.
Also, I feel like I could clarify a few things about the post since there are a lot of similar questions.
- This is technically an upgrade and not a completely new build. I reused my cpu, mobo, ssd, and replaced pretty much everything else. That’s why you see me “bottlenecking” the CPU with a 750ti.
- I intend to replace the GPU once things are a bit less hectic and I have more time to game. Until then, I’ll just save up so I can justify getting something nicer than I otherwise might have. I might even replace the CPU, too. Might even do a custom loop, hence the case.
- Yes, the fans are set to exhaust.
- Yes, that’s bad for GPU temps.
- No, I’m not worried about that with this particular GPU.
