My New Build, Constructive criticism please

Recommended Posts

Well i only have 500 gigs of storage at the moment and i have yet to even come close to filling it, thats even with my OS on it, i really dont know how, but thats how it has always been. I can always grab another hard drive in the future and throw it in if i really need to. Also Johnny Guru has said very very good things about the PSU and Thermaltake is not really a sketchy company in my experience so thank you but im sticking to it. The RAM thing, i was thinking of doing so but truly i have no idea if we will ver neeed 32+ gigs of it, but you never know i guess. Also i can afford a second titan so i say why not :D

Instead of the second titan get a custom loop going :p

This i plan to do later down the road, when this stuff becomes kinda slow, so in like 3-5 years or so, that way ill get as much as i can out of this system, seeing as right now this will shred almost anything ill need it to.

If you plan on sleeving your build stay away from seasonic and corsair. I would go for a silvertone psu because the pinout is pretty much 1 to 1. but if not then your psu will be just fine

i was thinking about it but as of right now, i wont be. That is something else ill do later on when I can, possibly when i custom loop this

Friend of mine is a programmer, he swears by 32GB for working. I have no clue what the hell it is he programs though.

I lol'd so hard :lol:  :lol:

I have changed the motherboard to the Asus Maximus VI Hero, it was cheaper, actually black PCB, and truly i love AsRock, but i didnt need the features it came with.

maybe it's ok to have a 1000w psu in your build because the fan won't ramp up as high and it's at it's best effciency at about 50% load. It's up to you :D. I would go with a corsair AXI series psu and added som of their professional sleeved cables :P

i would but i am really close to pushing over the budget as is, if i clear up more money somewhere i may do so seeing as sleeved cables are nice, but i could also do it myself, i trust Seasonic much more then Corsair but they both are great!

I need 3 monitors, that's also counting rebates in with the final price, and scaling for 3-way sli blows, 780's dont have as much VRAM for what ill be doing in surround, there is almost no difference between 2011 and 1150 for gaming, if any at all, NZXT is not at all my first choice for PSU, plus for surround TN will not cut it for me i have seen TN surround and it made me cry :P Unless you are just showing me a build that your going to buy, in which case, go nuts good sir.

 

My bad when I saw you're list i just thought you would be rendering as well. but what you have there is a Beast system, looking forward to it. And no i am not going to be doing that build i have just done one for $1600.
