you're looking at 250 watts for an i9 at 5Ghz or 200 watts at stock under full load. Another 325W-350W for an overclocked 1080ti. with all the other components, that puts the power supply right at its peak efficiency, so its not really overkill, and it always leaves headroom for adding another GPU or upgrading to an i9 that will pull 500W.

ICP performance with fewer cores or more cores with poorer ICP performance. Pick one.

I think i personally would have spent $10 extra for 3200 Mhz memory, as Ryzen greatly benefits from it. Other than that looks good.

What happened to some of these prices? A 780T for 220? 6900k for 1200? Windows 10 Pro for 200? Double the price for most of the fans?

You should really rotate that CPU cooler so that it is exhausting out the back of the case and not onto your GPU.

Well, if you don't plan on overclocking, you could get a little bit cheaper of a cooler. Noctua coolers are great for reliability, but are not going to be overclocking you could get away with something like this, which is still a little bit overkill.

Personally, i would do this. All i did was take out the hybrid drive, and put a 2TB 7200 disk in with a 128GB SSD. The speed is absolutely amazing, you won't regret the extra money spent.

As an owner of a 1060 6gb, PUBG Ultra is a breeze. I'm unsure why that monitor is so expensive though, i would personally go with something like this, but if you need a 27 inch monitor, that looks like a good choice.

You should definitely add an SSD for your Operating System. It's night and day.

I don't think you need 144hz for having OBS or Discord on a second display, and gaming with 2 thick bezels in the way would suck.

The unlocked CPU still boosts higher than the regular 7700 non-k. The RGB ram is kinda purposeless in that case, and the 120gb SSD is all you need if you're just doing basic tasks and not playing games, which i'm assuming will be the case as it is running off of the iGPU

Any reason you went with 2 144hz monitors and not just 1 144hz and a 60hz that costs less? I know some people do dual monitor gaming but i'm assuming that you're just gonna game on 1 at a time.

I'm pretty sure you should split up the memory between the 2 banks. Like have 2 sticks on one side and 2 sticks on the other. Check the motherboard manual to see which ones are recommended.

This is beautiful. The only 2 things i could pick on in this build is the red SanDisk logo on the SSD. Maybe some Vinyl wrap on the face of it would blend it better. Also, that barcode on the Pump/Res clashes alot. Peeling it off/Taping over it or something would give a much better look.

As for the GPU prices lately being so high, I would wait to purchase one until the prices go back down. There is about £350 left for a GPU. I would suggest a GTX 1070 or a GTX 1060 6gb. I did not include one in this list because again, GPU prices are insane.

They are truly dangerous animals. BTW, you might want to shove some gummy bears into your CPU socket for better connection. Maybe even get some in your PCI-E slots aswell, for better FPS in games.

This build MIGHT be able to run minesweeper at .2fps 16k. The dual Xeon's simply don't have enough cores to run the minesweeper experience. The dual P6000 are pathetic when it comes to graphics horsepower. This build was a hand me down from my dad, who just upgraded to a Pentium M 820.

You might want to put some velcro straps on the cables coming out of the PSU. It will give it a more organized look down there instead of it branching random directions.

The reason your Z270 Motherboard doesn't support more RAM is that the i7 7700K only supports 64GB. It wouldn't make any sense to make the Motherboard support more RAM than any CPU that is available on the platform.

I don't know why someone would need 3 monitors of different resolution other than to test which one they want to use, but it made the list hit 40k so whatever. Just trying to make the most over the top list I can, including EK Watercooling and too many ssd's to be practical.

I would put in an SSD for your boot drive, and if you're sure about getting an i7, might as well get the newest Kabylake i7.

I think that the 1060 could handle it. You might have to turn AA Down to 8x or 4x to get a solid 60fps in shooters sometimes but in my opinion, AA is only useful to an extent. I Know in GTA 5, I could max out all the settings with AA to 16x and only get around 50 fps, but the second i turn AA down to 4x or 8x i'm in the 60-70 range. If you really want no compromises then go with the GTX 1070, i know that's gonna be my next upgrade for sure. Best of luck building to you!

I only am using the rear fan that came with the case. So far its working out good, but when i upgrade i might throw in a fan splitter. I don't really want to power the fans through molex and have them going full speed all the time.
