Hey everyone, just looking for some opinions on this build, as I might be deciding to pull the trigger once the 4790k is released.
(Still fairly new to this, feel free to suggest other ideas!)
Computer to be used for a little bit of everything- Gaming, multimedia, and of course general use.
Processor: I picked the 4790k as it's right around what I was going to spend on a CPU already, and it seems exciting to start with a new processor out of the gate.
Motherboard: After looking around a lot, it was difficult to pick a z97 series mobo, but this one seems like it would work without breaking the bank.
Memory: Pretty standard, no?
Storage: 1TB + 1 SSD will work just great for me. I can always add more storage later if I need to.
Video Card: I'm slightly partial to Nividia, and it seems to me the 770 would provide enough performance without breaking the bank.
Power Supply: Feel free to suggest anything here! After looking around a lot I wasn't sure what to go with. Should I upgrade to a PSU around 750W? (future proofing, quality, ability to be modular?)
Case: I love the look and feel of the H440.
So overall, feel free to suggest any and all changes (since I'm fairly new to this), but specifically, should I change anything about the PSU, Motherboard, or memory?
Thanks for your time!
