Parts List for ULTIMATE 4K Gaming PC Build Guide

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

This ultimate build guide is all about getting a great gaming experience at 4K. It's a no-compromises machine... but one that also doesn't just dump money down teh toilet for the sake of it, so while there might (read: will) be stuff out there that's a better bang for the buck, every piece of this monster DOES have a purpose.

 


 

I'm going to list out the components as well as provide a source or two for where you can get them :)

 

I can't tell you where to buy this stuff, but I do lean towards NCIX for the Canadians (and International viewers if their pricing and shipping costs work out for you) because they're my bros, and for Americans, Brits, and a couple other regions, the Amazon links below are affiliate links, so of course every little bit helps :)

Also, I see you, sneaky end text.

Why 32gb of ram though?

 

I agree that would be fine with 16gb

tres gusta, the core specs were pretty much what I expected from the title (admittedly minus the RAID 730s) :)

I think these build guides are biased to Nvidia, 290x is superior at higher resolutions.

this screams affiliate & sponsors.. Especially when there's products that are the same thing, for cheaper & do the same thing with the same performance.

Intel did sponsor this build guide... And most others too. That's why in the thread he even says that there a better parts for the money out there. As for the 780ti's, my guess would be In LTT benchmarks they are higher because they've gotten better overclocks out of them.
