Really nice looking build, the 780 ti, is pretty overkill for 1080p gaming, but no complaints from me. Maybe for your next upgrade would be some 1440p action?

Nice Computer Build. Although I would get a higher SSD.

That is exactly the opposite of how SSDs work.

sqielyr -1 points 12 months ago

not necessarily

DishRagBoy -1 points 12 months ago

That's not entirely true have you seen the EVO's? The 250gb slaughters the 120gb and the 1tb is faster than them all.

Love this build... Don't you love the Phantom 410? I have one myself and in my opinion it's the one of the sexier cases out there.

Synister 2 points 12 months ago

I personally prefer the Corsair 500R. The top compartment is just made for the H100i's radiator. However, the Phanton410 is a sexy looking case. It's all a matter of personal preference really :)

Daisyahoy [2 Builds] 2 points 12 months ago

its too clean! You need to shove some more junk in there :) +1

If i were looking to spend 1700 on a computer, this would be my parts list. Sweet build!

ChummyCoffee 2 points 12 months ago

What is the noise like?

GreenReaper [Submitter] [1 Build] 3 points 12 months ago

Quite loud when gaming. Still ok though. ..

Awesome build! +1

Hi guys, thanks for commenting. I wanted a rig with i7 and Gtx 780 ti in it and I was on budget. I will propably buy a 144hz monitor as I'll be playing Bf4 most of the time. The ssd does fills up very fast but I propably be getting more of them in the future.

deathfromup [6 Builds] 6 points 12 months ago

I personally would go for a 1440p monitor over a 144Hz monitor. 144Hz is cool but the 1440p is much more noticeable in games imo. Just my 2 cents.

Love the build, and great price for it.

skemble [18 Builds] 5 points 12 months ago

Also there are many 1440p monitors, from Korea, that can be overclocked upwards of 120Hz. I am using a Qnix Evolution II at 96Hz with zero artifacts or screen tearing. Would definitely recommend!

deathfromup [6 Builds] 2 points 12 months ago

Me too! I'm loving my x-star DP2710. I am always a little hesitant to suggest it to people though because it does come with a few small risks and stipulations. 1440p really is amazing and i love the screen real estate and gaming, but definitely do your research on it before you buy one off ebay. 300 for a 1440p 120Hz monitor is a price you just cant beat.

This thread is kinda the all in one guide to these monitors.


skemble [18 Builds] 1 point 12 months ago

I was able to get a pixel perfect version on Amazon for $320. I felt that that was a deal too sweet to pass up. You're right though, there are risks, do your research first!

deathfromup [6 Builds] 2 points 12 months ago

Nice. 320 pixel perefect of amazon is an amazing deal. I ordered from a guy on ebay, and it came with a full row of dead pixels. Had to return it and wait an extra 2 weeks to get a replacement back. The seller paid for all the shipping and the 2nd one was pixel perfect OC to 120 easy, but it was a pain having to deal with international shipping and the 2 week wait.

Overall it was worth it for the 1440p lol.

skemble [18 Builds] 1 point 12 months ago

I would be so bummed if I had a bunch of dead pixels! D: I have some slight edge bleed on totally black screens, but I only see it on boot up!

YourLocalPCNoob [1 Build] 1 point 12 months ago

how are the temps for the 780ti?

SumanIV [1 Build] 1 point 12 months ago

Very nice.

DanielRS [1 Build] 1 point 12 months ago

I really like the looks, pretty clean and elegant +1

canders [7 Builds] 1 point 12 months ago

Very clean. +1

Narcix 1 point 12 months ago

Nice build, but overkill for 1080p. Consider buying a 1440p monitor in the future instead of a 144hz (but that's just opinion). The 4770k is a bit wasted since you don't do professional level editing.

This is suspiciously cheap for this kind of computer.

Lodestone99 1 point 1 month ago

Well when you don't include a price for the gpu, the hard drive and the optical drive - of course the price will be way low. Apologies to the op if this is a display problem for me.

LostNinJa 1 point 4 months ago

Perfect for gaming, just the big case... I like keeping it small but that's my preference This is overkill for any game out there. Epic Build!

Lovely build, and excellent pictures.
I'm hoping my first build comes out looking as nice.

Your pictures answered a couple of questions I'd had, too :) I see you just took out the fan, and not the whole drive cage to fit in the graphics card, which was what I was hoping; and the NH-D14 will fit (a quick read of specs said it didn't).

kittycatrussia 1 point 2 months ago

I'm about to get the same case! But I was wondering about how much space it is cause it says the graphics card blocks some of the drive bays. Is that happening to you?

AreYouJealousYet 1 point 28 days ago

Nice build but the case you chose in my opinion is ulgy

Bat_Man1_2_3 1 point 25 days ago

How's the ram? I was considering picking it up.

multitasker451 1 point 9 days ago

That CPU cooler though

rhandyrhoads [5 Builds] -2 points 12 months ago

I personally would have gone for a bigger SSD because 128 GB fills up fast. Also 128 GB SSDs are a bit slower then larger capacity SSDs. However if you go too large failure rate increases. In my opinion 256 gigs is the sweet spot. Also you could have dropped down to an i5 and used the money you saved to buy a nice Corsair liquid cooler. Well it's already build so enjoy your PC and happy gaming.

deathfromup [6 Builds] 7 points 12 months ago

Since he is doing video editing, i think the i7 is appropriate.

18hockey [1 Build] 1 point 12 months ago

dat hyperthreading :P

rhandyrhoads [5 Builds] 1 point 12 months ago

Ah I didn't see that in the description.

tomaryus [1 Build] 1 point 12 months ago

well, noctua nhd14 is better than most corsair liquid coolers. Also I dont think the difference will be noticeable or not worth careing for between 256 and 128gb ssd. However I would agree with going for an i5 only if gaming, but not in this case
