nVidia GeForce Garage Helps You To Build A Gaming PC

Most well known for the manufacture of GPUs (Graphical Processing Units), also known as video cards, nVidia has recently put together GeForce Garage. Garage is an online resource center, based on their web site, that seeks to help PC gamers of multiple experience levels; apprentice, technician, expert, and master. While I am a seasoned PC gamer who has built between 20 and 30 gaming computers, I thought I’d check out this suite of information to see how a GPU company (that I love) is trying to help out gamers.

Does it help you Design a PC centered around AMD GPU/CPU? Or will I get a continuous error every time I try to plug a non Nvidia GPU into the thing.

"In this build they decide to use an Intel CPU which is an odd choice for a budget build".

There is Nothing Budget about Intel CPU's. even the old ones cost $300, used ones are sold for $300, hell even broken Intel CPU's are sold for $300.

Find an Intel CPU laying on the ground I bet you at some point shortly after your bank account will be $300 lesser.

they dont help you buy the parts .. just how to actually build it

You are more then welcome to plug your information over to AMD and see if they'll help you.

With a name like ATi_elite I'm sure they'll help you.

I am more inclined to Tom's Hardware or PC Part Picker to help me set up my rig. Good on Nvidia for putting another resource out there to help Pc gamers get what they want.

This guide is kinda useless because it gives basic info that any experienced PC builder already knows, but fails to explain many concepts for Newbies, so I wonder who the intended audience is.

I mean, If you never built a PC before, how do you make sense of a statement like this? At least have a diagram showing where the socket retention bracket is.

"Lift the lid of the socket retention bracket until it is pointing perpendicular to the Mobo"

So.. it needs more work.

Odd that this article hit today.
I was impulsive earlier and decided I would upgrade my rig and ordered 2 EVGA GTX 780 Ti Classified Kinpins. I couldn't pass up the deal a friend of mine got me for them.

I just hope my power supply can handle them.

What kind of deal on your 780ti? I was thinking of doing a plain ol 780 instead of SLI'ing my 670 and a 760.

SteamPowered1174d ago

That's not a bad deal at all. You prolly got it cheaper than a plain 780. That's an insane rig you must be running. Kudos.

I'm just shooting for ultra setting using 46" 1080p triple panels. I'm not looking to get into 1440p or 4K so this setup should do me for the next few years, hopefully.

I wont get into 4k gaming until the hardware will be able to push triple panel 4k displays at reasonable fps and near max settings. I love resolution but I can't give up my multi panel display for improved visuals. I'm all about the immersion and nothing I've ever added or done in gaming beats triples when it comes to that.

I'm looking forward to installing them and seeing what they can do. From all I read I should be able to run Crysis 3 and BF4 on my triples at Ultra settings without breaking a sweat. If not I will make a few more adjustments. ;)

Seems a bit like a sponsored advertisement for components. Nice that they want to help but they seem to want to help certain component manufactures as much as the consumer.
