Went All Out... First Build

Shibs
  • 70 months ago

Hey guys, how's it going? I'm new here, and new to the whole building a PC. I've always been a gamer and I'm finally at a point where I have the time and resources to build my own PC. I've always wanted to, and I've been researching how to forever. I wanted this to be a great PC. I don't want to upgrade constantly, so I spent a lot of money and even more time researching everything. I think I've finally come up with a something that I can be proud of. I decided to go with the dual monitor set up because I have the same set up at work, and I love it for multi-tasking and productivity, although I plan to only use one monitor for gaming. I believe I have everything I need right here! Please let me know if anything seems unbalanced, or I missed anything that could severely diminish my performance. Gracias!

P.S. Will the two extra fans be sufficient enough to cool this rig?

that will be one hell of a build first off no over clock? why motherboard kinda expensive. processor out dated. 4790k and get a different motherboard. it would be better to sli or crossfire than one single card. you don't realy need expensive fans

I'm hoping it'll last me a long time with no upgrades. I'll update the processor then and change the motherboard.. I did a lot of research and a lot of places said that one good video card is normally better, especially for those (like me) who are less savvy with this sort of thing. To be honest when I start research into overclocking I get intimidated by all the information out there haha.
