Nice build. Needs a description though to explain why you chose an ivy bridge cpu and a biostar motherboard
The bio star came with free a gskill 8gb ram stick. I am happy with it i know they aren't a mainstream brand but board is of good build quality and, I have had it for about 9 months and have had no issues.
I would of changed a couple things; but, very nicely done.
+1 780ti FTW
no description, missing required pics -1
Definitely would make some different choices such as a modular and a bit bigger of a PSU, different processor (not that ivy bridge as bad but I would probably go with haswell or FX-8320/8350 with so much power) and a different motherboard. Cable management needs some fixing up, so overall this build is a bit rough around the edges but it'll definitely be a powerhouse.
Why a bigger PSU. Even if he did plan for an upgrade to sli then he would have himself a massive bottleneck, but i definitely do agree with getting a semi/full modular PSU, but i will always go semi unless i want to go custom cabling. Also it looks like a motherboard that he salvaged from an older build/got for tiny amounts of money.
I just would've went with a 850w so I could have space to overclock and it's quite a high end build so that's why.
overclocking does not need that much extra power, but i see how having more power is a appealing option just in case you will be upgrading massively in the future.
Funny that I basically say the same thing as candy yet I get downvoted.. lol
Its an old build just trew in 780 ti recently and put it on here. My 3570k gets better performance than my friends 4670k at same clock. So i didnt see the need to upgrade the cpu.
Getting a new case since this one is to cramped and not ideal for cable management. Ordered the corsair C70 and an H80i to tidy up the build will post new pictures and update the build soon.
Ah, that makes sense. I thought these were all newly bought parts, thats why I was confused. Anyways, enjoy your build!
