So much overkill on that PSU ;_;
Wowza ya that psu is more than double the watts you need. But cool build besides that.
Well at least his power supply won't be stressed past 50% load and the fan can be kept quiet.
Ha wont go over 15-20% let alone 50. And you'll never heard the fan on nicer psu's. Your cpu fans or cans fans are always louder.
I know right.
I know I got scared halfway through this was my first build. I doubt I'll need to change the PSU even with the next generation though. So I'm gonna call it long term investment.
If I was spending over $2k on a build then I would've at least gotten a CPU with hyperthreading and a 780ti. You could've saved a lot by not getting the extreme overkill PSU. 600 watts is all you need, an 850 watt PSU would be fine for SLI. It's 80+ gold certified which is good. That case's price is abysmal honestly. It better have done your cable management for you.
More pictures and a bigger description please :)
Trust me it didn't start off with a 2k budget this is actually the third iteration with the only constants the case and PSU. And the case did basically. All the light wired hot swap bays I know it's gaudy but I felt it was worth it plus the pop factor
Cool how was this case to work with? I was considering building one of these soonish.
No description. blah!
I would have cut down on the PSU, the case (even though I know it is personal taste), gone with a 780, better monitor, and Haswell. Still not bad, but it could have been made a little more efficiently.
I truly feel like skimping in the processor is my biggest draw back. As far as the minister goes I already had it from a earlier PC so it wasn't actually picked for at other reason than that. The card theory was to get another 770 eventually.
i hate you for having this mouse because i want it so much
I spent money on I actually missed the series when it was readily available but I have tracked them all down except the mouse pad. I still play SW:tTOR to this day.
I'm looking at a build with most of the same components (minus the overkill PSU and peripherals). Would rather split up the RAM into 4x4GB personally.
P.S. isn't the i5-4670k only like $30 more? Woulda gone that route as well.
Overall, this is a nice build though
Love the pics. Love the description. Love the part selection.
You mean 'pic'.
If you're going to be playing racing games or vehicle simulators (mainly noticed the joysticks and pedals). Why not save on the power supply and get an ultra wide monitor?
In hindsight a totally fair critique. I am about to start a refresh build and will be incorporating that into it.
