Advice on Custom PC Build

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I spent about an hour on PC-Partpicker selecting these parts. 

 

I would really appreciate some advice / improvements / suggestions.

 

IMPORTANT NOTE: I will not purchase anything until the GTX 880 is released because I will probably replace the GTX 780 with that

 

Anyway, here is the build:

 

CPU Intel Core i7-4790K 4.0GHz Quad-Core $395.00

Motherboard MSI Z97-G45 Gaming ATX LGA1150 $198.00

Memory Corsair Vengeance 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3-1866 $215.00

Storage Crucial MX100 512GB 2.5" SSD $279.00   Seagate Barracuda 2TB 3.5" 7200RPM $93.00

Video Card MSI GeForce GTX 780 3GB TWIN FROZR $549.00

Case Corsair SPEC-03 Red ATX Mid Tower $78.00

Power Supply Corsair 650W ATX12V / EPS12V $159.00

Optical Drive LG GH24NSB0 DVD/CD Writer $22.00

Wireless Network Adapter Asus PCE-N53 802.11a/b/g/n PCI-Express x1 $47.00

Case Fan Corsair Air Series AF120 Performance Edition 63.5 CFM 120mm $18.00

The total price is $2053.00AUD

At this time you are better off getting a 780 since gtx 880 release date is unknown. cant plan for something you have no idea what it will cost.


If you've previously won the build off please pm me so we can get something worked out.

I might suggest getting a 3rd party CPU cooler and if you are only using the pc for gaming an i5 is more than enough you don't really need an i7

what is this build for?

 

awful a lot of overkill parts

 

16GB is too much unless you are doing content creation

 

512GB SSD is also too much

 

250GB is like the highest

 

is there a real need for WiFi?


Budget? Uses? Currency? Location? Operating System? Peripherals? Monitor? Use PCPartPicker wherever possible.

There is not much point in designing a build until pricing and detailed specs of the gpu you intend to buy. A budget is also helpful.

 

I will say though that the OP build needs an aftermarket cooler of some sort. A better psu than the RM-650 would also be a good idea.

get a evga g2 750w psu, get a i5 4690k if your just gaming, you can get a msi gaming 5 or 7 instead, also get a hyper 212 evo or a h100i.

I have a corsair power supply because I also have a Corsair case. I am also going to use this computer for some 4k video editing. The current motherboard I have is cheaper which is the only reason I'm not getting the 212 Evo. Thanks.

 

I might suggest getting a 3rd party CPU cooler and if you are only using the pc for gaming an i5 is more than enough you don't really need an i7

Once again I'm solely using it for gaming but I am going to be doing some High resolution video editing. I'll probably get a CPU Cooler as suggested. Thanks

I have a 512 SSD Because my current hard-drive has around 400gb of Programs.

I would like to have the Wireless because if I move homes and the Modem is placed in a position where Ethernet is un-usable then I will still have Internet access.

I plan to have this computer for as long as possible and with constantly updated programs, technology etc. I think that this will still be high-end in the future.

Yeah. If i was to purchase it now I would get a 780 but I'm not going to until the 880's released. I also am happy to receive so many suggestions so I can modify it as time passes.

Yeah, Once the gpu comes out it will be a lot easier to select parts.

I really like this build. Although, I do like the case I selected. Other than that this looks great!

The PSU seems fine to me, you can't exactly put another 780/880 in it though, if you want to upgrade. I would also choose the Kingston RAM, like dragoon20005, since it's better value, but the Corsair is a good choice too, if you want it to match your PSU and case.

Anyway, it's good to see someone being reasonable about their selection of PSUs. Lots of people put a 1000W PSU in their build, just because they have a 780Ti.
