Hi all, my first post here.
Have been reading a lot on this forum and gaining useful info. I want to help my teenage son build a pc which will primarily be for gaming, 3D rendering/modelling, multi-tasking, office-work and video editing . I myself have not much knowledge about building PCs so seeking info from the knowledgeables. I asked him to short-list various parts which thanks to PcPartPicker are as below:
Would hugely appreciate opinions,advice and recommendation.
CPU Intel Core i7-4790K 4.0GHz Quad-Core (Devils canyon) £233.94
Motherboard Asus Z97-A ATX ( LGA1150 socket) £110.39
Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 £61.25 Corsair Vengeance 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3-1600 £120.65
Storage Samsung 840 EVO 250GB 2.5" SSD £90.00
Hard drive 2x Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM £39.59
Note: Hard drives in a Raid 1 configuration
EVGA GeForce GTX 760 4GB Superclocked ACX £224.11 Asus GeForce GTX 970 4GB STRIX £293.82
will be running 2 monitors
Case Corsair 450D ATX Mid Tower £90.00
SeaSonic 620W ATX £66.78 EVGA 750W ATX12V / EPS12V £77.38
Optical Drive Samsung SN-208DB/BEBE DVD/CD Writer £14.99
Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 (OEM) (64-bit) £69.99 Microsoft Windows 8.1 (OEM) (64-bit) £72.35
- Are there any conflicts / bottlenecks with such a configuration?
- What is the reliability of the parts? E.g some people have had issues with the motherboard on Newegg)
- Is the power-supply sufficient?
- Will the graphics card fit in the case and on the motherboard? 5.Can someone recommend an after-market CPU cooler that will fit in the case and on the motherboard?
Hugely appreciate any help.
