So this is a long awaited pc build. Ive been gaming on "gaming laptops" Asus G75 for the past 2 years and before then was a G73. My last Pc build was a core 2 quad with 9800 GX2s in sli, but sadly that was a while ago.
For this build Im kinda going all out but trying to keep with in a budget and keep a color scheme of white and blue.
Intel Core i5-6600K 3.5GHz Quad-Core Processor I went with the i5 for a few reasons here. One while I do some video editing as well as lightwave, 3ds and photoshop, I really dont need an i7 for the hyper threading to be worth it. With a little over clocking this will be just as beast as the i7 but cheaper. Also other then the .5ghz difference and the level 3 cache, theres not much of a difference there either and gaming never see's the more cores of an i7.
MSI Z170A XPOWER GAMING TITANIUM EDITION ATX LGA1151 Motherboard I love the silver and that its almost white. The specs of the board are what everyones looking for and is better then your cheaper LGA1151 boards.
-Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-3200 Memory The faster the better. 3200 DDR4 should keep me running for a while and later then upgrade to 32gb.
-2x Samsung 850 EVO-Series 500GB 2.5" Solid State Drive I really wanted to get the M.2 version with the stats of pure awesomeness but not for the $300 price tag. In this build I will be going with Raid 0. This is a gaming rig only so im not worried about redundancy or if something randomly goes bad and I lose the filesystem.
-EVGA GeForce GTX 980 Ti 6GB Superclocked+ ACX 2.0+ Video Card Best 980 you can get for the price and the looks of the card arnt bad. The only thing I wish this card had the better power phase for future potential overclocking.
-Corsair RM 1000W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply Well I could have gone cheaper, but I never go cheaper when its the PSU. Or under/ right on amount of power needed. At 1000w and 83w at the 12v rails, this has what I need to stay in business even when I add a second card in sli.
-Corsair 750D ATX Full Tower Case Yea everyone has gone with this case, but the plan is a custom lighting system wired to a adjustable fan controller switch. I can adjust the brightness of the light with it. I might paint the case but im undecided yet.
-Acer XG270HU 144Hz 27.0" Monitor Ok so a lot of searching and a lot of youtube videos finding just the monitor I want. This has a decent price tag and at 1440p 144hz its pretty good. I really wanted an ultrawide but HOLY crap if I wanted an ultrawide at 144hz id spend the same if not more then the whole pc build. The plan will prolly be getting the x34 later on.
UPDATE: So I upgraded to the Acer Predator X34 and got myself a GTX 1080 Hybrid and man or man is it nicer then ever. I made a psu cover and got some braided cables and upgraded to better case fans as well.
