Description

This PC is perfect for me, a little over kill on the ram but it was only half that price when i bought it.

*Note: This picture is from when i had my evga gtx 670 ftw sent in for repair, they returned it with a backplate which is nice but I really dislike this gfx card.

Also for some reason, my m-board wasn't listed so i chose the closest one, my current mb is the asus p8z77-v deluxe, which is around the same price as the "ws".

I really think you should've went with a better GPU with these kind of parts

Agreed, I really wasn't thinking when i bought that gfx card. I did zero research on it which is why i regret buying it. I'm going to use the step up program with evga when i get the extra money but right now im working on a home and hosted server so money is tight.

I wanted to be able to multi task, and have as much monitors/tv/projector plugged in at the same time. What kind of gfx card would you suggest?

Depends on your budget and to a degree your preference.

As I see you wish to continue using the EVGA line, you are looking at nVidia cards. Multiple monitors would lead me to suggest that you get a 4GB card, such as the 4GB FTW 760 or 4GB SC 770. But in the end it comes down to budget.

To explain the 4GB choice, the draw of memory increases across the screens as the content is processed and buffered :D

Thanks, Luke.

I use this pc also with a projector to watch movies etc. So i use the wireless to sit my lazy butt on the couch.

darn, that thing is fully loaded! I like how you have that fan attached to the bottom HDD rack. How did you attach that? I have the Define R4 but I don't remember the bottom rack having holes for a case fan

Thanks Jack, Yeah, I really love the fract design cases, they are really sleek and amazing looking. Really, the fan is just laying there. lol. Before i had it angled so it would kinda wedge it self to keep from moving, but one day i just stood it up and it stayed. And since the pc never moves, I figured wth. I should probably use some black zip ties tho, eh?

If a part is not listed, you can send an email to pcpartpicker administrator. He could add it, if has the time, of course. He helped me adding the tower case I bought. Wonderful PC by the way, and the RAM was a great deal. Greetings!

Why 4 ethernet ports?

That was a mistake, I could not find a board like mine with 2 eth ports so i added the intel dual port, which i do own btw.

The drives are all raided, the two ssd's are in a raid 0 (striped) and the 4 western 1TB drives are in a raid 5, I got a really good price on the wd's so yeah, I keep all my important stuff on them along with tv shows, music and work documents/ files.

But really, you can never have enough space!

Why do you have such a large power supply; I dont think this build would use that much juice... Are you planning on an upgrade in the future or what??? I am using the Ivy Bridge-E i7 and two gtx 660Ti's and I am only using about 800watts

At the time of purchase I wanted the best i could get for the best price and that cost me $220. It was intended to be maxed out but yeah, its over kill especially because my battery backup is reporting a max of 162 watts while im writing this... lol. I will double check with a kill-a-watt later to confirm but the UPS is APC/Schneider so i trust it.
