Advice on Computer Build

Stypher
  • 71 months ago

So i am building a rig for a friend and after some brain cell killing, i have come up with this build. The issue i am having is whether this setup will support 2 x 1080P LG 50" LED TV's (Via HDMI Output) and 1 x Samsung 27" Monitor. The rig will be used to play not really graphic intense games like Dota, some shooters (BF: Hardline etc) and Diablo 3. I know i am going way over on the power supply however i would like to leave room for future upgrades just in case.

27 inch 1080p is never a good idea. It's a low PPI for a display of that size so some things will appear pixellated as a result:

The 27" is just kinda like meh, it will use the DVI output for that monitor. If anything its just there to be closer to me so that i can use it like a reference screen for docs and such. I just want to make sure that the parts will be fine together and nothing will go catastrophically wrong when running 2 tv's and 1 monitor
