Any pics of the inside?

Way too much wattage unless you plan on doing triple xfire or something.

I know right. Are you future proofing or something? and can you post some pics of the inside.

Yeah, I'm big on future proofing. :) I can post pictures of the inside tomorrow, if people are still interested...

Xfire is AMD silly ;D

Let me list out my gripes with this build.

  1. Expensive motherboard- The sabertooth is ridiculously overpriced and you would have been better off getting a z87 extreme 4 and a nicer video card.

  2. 16gb of RAM- Unless this is an editing rig (if it is you should have gone with an i7 anyway) you don't need 16gb of RAM, you would have been just fine with 8gb.

  3. The PSU- This one is a massive 'what?', 1050w is sooo overkill for a single GPU rig. Unless you are going crossfire a 650w would have suited this system much better and you would be at peak efficiency so you would save a lot of power.

  1. The motherboard. Ahh yes, the motherboard. The haswell motherboards were so new at this point I didn't have a solid go-to option picked out yet. I chose the sabertooth because I had heard good things about the stability/temperature and cooling for the sabertooth line, and was pleased with the upgraded audio set included.
  2. Yeah, I know. Would have gone with 8GB, but I wanted to leave room to upgrade to 32 in the future without having to buy all new RAM sticks.
  3. Yes, I was initially planning on running Crossfire with 2 7950's in the near future. Again, future proofing my rig. A good power supply is something that you don't skimp on, from what I've seen; and I would rather be under the recommended wattage at the beginning, than be over it when i decide to upgrade.

I like this build a lot, reminds me of mine. I like how you didn't cheap out on the motherboard, although that's just personal preference.

Why the crazy power supply.

I know it's a little late, and I don't know if you did any SSD research, but nearly every other SSD out on the market is faster and more efficient than the M4. The Samsung 840 is even less expensive per GB.

Other than that, I echo DjArtifact.

The only reason I had the M4 listed in there is because I bought it a few years back and had used it in my old laptop. I transferred it from that to save cost. I would have like to throw a nice new samsung in there, though :)

you know you can add that in without a cost right?

do you think that graphics card could handle 4 Asus PB238Q (link: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/asus-monitor-pb238q)) they are 1080p, I'm planning on making a pc with that graphics card

You can't just go and say that ALL Nvidia cards are better than AMD cards. That's very biased. You would have to take over a million benchmarks into consider before you determined "which card is faster" which cannot even be determined as it is too broad of a statement.

TLDR: Lets keep our inner fanboy away from the forums.

Well then it's a good thing that I didn't say that... I said AMD cards lack the performance given by comparable Nvidia cards once you pass the threshold of performance given by the 7870/660 Tier. I'm not a fanboy of Nvidia, I'm a fanboy of performance, and it just so happens that the higher you reach into graphics card hierarchy the more Nvidia pulls away. This will soon change as AMD hasn't released a new series of cards in a very long time (the 7000 series came out before Nvidia's 600 series), but once they do I'm almost certain that the tables will either turn or the field becomes relatively equal.

TL;DR - Think about what a post means before you crap on it.

I love how you deleted your original comment. Seems like you are trying to openly deny something that you blatantly said. The deletion is proof of your fantastic cover up! /s

:) I love how you completely distract from the main point because I just showed you up. I didn't delete the post because I was trying to cover it up, I deleted it because there was an overwhelming dislike of it from people who saw it, and so it was only logical to get rid of a post that was so unaccepted. Because I deleted it, I then wrote a second comment reiterating in a clearer wording what I was trying to convey. I didn't cover up anything.

You told me to read your post more carefully to determine the meaning of it, yet you delete the original comment that I replied to and made a new one that was more educated and less fanboish. Then you tell me that you showed me up? Of course because I replied to a comment of yours that you deleted, not the comment that you just made. I neglected to comment on your second comment because that was not what I originally got into the argument with you about. I saw you critizing AMD cards and blatantly saying that Nvidia was "better" without any solid benchmarks or other tests to determine that. Which as I said before, cannot simply be determined due to the heaps of benchmarks and tests that would have to be conducted. AMD and Nvidia cards both excel in different fields of computing, there is not a one particular benchmark that could determine "Overall Performance". I have no business replying to your second statement because it was a result of your change on it after reading my response. You changed your opinion on the matter and then proceeded to tell me that you "showed me up". Technically, I showed you up because of the amount of downvotes that you got on your OP. When people downvote you, they disagree with you. Hope this clears everything up. Have a great day!
