This is mi third build and want to share it with you. My first build was AMD based, it was my first computer and did not build it. Second computer was build by myself, and old Core i7 950 with a GTX 295, then upgraded to a GTX 480 and finally to a GTX 680.
From that second build I only kept the sound card and the Seagate Barracuda. Everything else (including the case - a Cooler Master Cosmos S) was sold.
For this third build I wanted to go with last Core i7 4th generation and chose the the 4770k, taking advantage of its hyper - threading technology and easier overclocking (giving its unlocked multiplier).
This machine es used for gaming and video/audio editing (the 8 logic cores really help here). That's one of the reasons why I use a big 32'' HDTV monitor, I need to have lots of screen space for editing.
I plan to go with a custom loop to better cool both CPU and GPU and also aesthetics.
I think I managed to get a very clean (modular PSUs rock) and efficient gaming/workstation machine, which will last a long time, I expect.
Feel free to comment and thanks for reading.
