Any update on this?
wow. such power.
Awesome build, OP!
This is definitely not the "Ultimate Gaming PC". You could have saved a lot of money in a lot of places like the HDD and Blu-ray drive and put those towards a better GPU.
Also, more pictures would be appreciated.
PSU. Definitely the PSU.
Well then he just should have gotten a 4770 (non K). I hope he's getting a good cooler and OCing when he gets his new parts, like he said he is in 2014.
Umm... he has a video of the build in the description. Fake? I think not.
I'm the same way right now. Update us, OP!
Holy cow that's awesome!
Good parts and nice cable management!
No NZXT PSU or custom cables? :'(
Still a good build, though!
Buy 2 more monitors, and you'll still be at 120hz+
AWESOME BUILD! I love how you say it does 'well' as if you expected it to be so good it would make your awesomeness level skyrocket. :P
I really like the aggressive look of the case! You could have saved some cash and gone with a 3570k, which still works well for rendering, and put the extra cash into a 670. Still a great build, though, especially with the first time cable management!
I wouldn't have gone with 4GB of VRAM, since you're only running on one monitor, and I would assume it's 60hz, just because nobody really has 120hz, so you won't see much of a difference.
I wih I had the cash to build a computer just because I was bored... :'(
Really nice build, though!
Ok, so hz are how many pictures the monitor can output per seconds. So, if you have a 60hz monitor, yet your GPU is pushing out 80 FPS, you will only be able to see 60 of those frames every second, because that's all your monitor can output. So, if you have 120hz, you would be able to see all 80+ images your GPU is putting out every second and that would be the case all the way up to 120 FPS, and the same goes for 144hz and 144 FPS.
The problem is that most people can't tell the difference between 60 FPS and 120 FPS, even on a 120hz monitor, which fully supports the frames per second. So, you would almost positively not be able to tell the difference between 120hz and 144hz.
So, with the GPU you have selected (Which is a bit overkill if you're only using 1 monitor), I would go with a 120hz monitor if you want the best, since 144hz is relatively new, expensive, and doesn't really provide a real-world benefit.
Because if you're saving $300 while you're at it, why not? :D
Great build! I'm going to guess that your next upgrade will be with the GPU, correct?
I was going to say... those FPS's look just a tad bit low!
STICKERSSS!!!!! Nice build, too!
I've seen quite a lot of builds recently with the Dark Knight 2. Good build!
I got so excited when I saw the first pic! Then I was disappointed. But I await the update!
I love the way you did the pictures, but if we could see more, that would be great! From the parts list, though, this build looks awesome! Great Job!
Wow I love the lighting and color scheme!
But the real test is... Can it run Minesweeper at higher that 30 FPS?
But anyway, nice build! I'm jealous!
Haha nice. Well, good build!
Pics ASAP! I can't wait for pictures of this beast! Make sure you save yourself from that 4GB card for a 1080p monitor!
Well, that is a 570, so I'm not surpirised. Good build though, especially for from 4 years ago. What upgrades are you planning on doing next?
Everything looks good except for the overpriced peripherals. Also, I hope that 560 Ti is being reused.
Is this a confirmed build. Do you know you are building it for a fact? Even if the answer is yes, it should be in the forums. But as for the build itself, get a different power supply, a cheaper network card, and maybe a bigger SSD. But put in the forums and take the build down before the staff has to for you.
Nice build, but why LGA 2011 and 16GB for gaming?
Woah. Best build on the site in a while! I love the color scheme and the professionalization of your pictures!
Nice build, too!
mORE PICTURES OF THIS SEXY BEAST PLEASE!
Huh. I have no idea where I heard it, I just remember something about Amd processors only supporting it because it was developed by AMD or something...
What kind of frames are you getting with that setup in Planetside 2? i'm curious because I'm going to plan on building a gaming/editing PC(hopefully) soon with a 3770k, and as Planetside 2 is very CPU dependent, I would love to know what frames you get!
P.S. I would also be using a single 680 4GB, but you really only need a 560ti and you won't be CPU bottlenecked, but I want the full 60+ FPS in the game.
I thought you can't run RAM drives with Intel, I thought it was only AMD...?
I don't quite understand your message, but I'm oing to attempt to reply to it. I was saying that he got a "non-K" version of that processor, yet he got a motherboard build for overclocking, as signified by the "Z" in Z77 on the motherboard technical name. If it said "H77", it would have been much more appropriate, as it would be a non-overclocking CPU with a non-overclocking motherboard.
I hope that's what you meant by your question!
Locked, unnecessary CPU + Overclocking Motherboard. But otherwise, great build! You'll definitely want to pick up a GPU at some point, though.
Ahh, didn't catch that! Good deal, then!
I love it, but I would have gone with different sets of RAM. You could have saved anywhere from $30-50 by getting a kit of 4x4GB or 2x8GB. Otherwise, great job!
Titan, because if I had the money to buy one, I sure as hell would save up to buy another and SLI it.
Good job, and that's a hell of a lot of fans, but it's overall a great build. My only concern is that it's a little cramped. But otherwise, great job!
Surprised nobody has asked this yet... Why the sideways motherboard?
I looked it up, it looks like it's a Windows 7 mod that makes everything look "sleeker" with a really fast explorer, but some other downsides, as it's a mod.
