Just put this build together for my friend. Any changes?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP
I am just mainly just asking if any one knows if these parts have any issues working well together. His price range is right at 1900$. He already has two HDDs coming from an old build. As well as two monitors. What do y'all think?

Replace the SSD with Crucial or Samsung.

Why not a Logitech G502 mouse instead?

 

That headset is probably trash.

 

Other than that, no complaints.

The guy has his heart set on the case. (i agree he should go with the s340 i have the 440 and love it). I don.t wanna go the sli rout because he mainly plays games that don't have support for it and as for the psu being raplaced and the mobo. I trust seasonic more then evga(just have had better experiences) and the msi mobo fits the color scheme better. I am more worried about compatibility than any thing else.

He really wanted wireless. The head set is the best around besides going with a pair of head phones and a mod mic.

My build is have no compatibility issues at all even when u get the case he want with my build he will still save around $150. If you don't like sli then just get a 980 and save even more money. Evga make great psu there's no reason to spend $30 more for that seasonic one.

The 150 that he is saving in your build does not include the keyboard and nzxt Hue leds. after those are added in he would only save around 20-40$ and well the color scheme and name brand psu are worth that. (if it was my own build I would save the money and get some steam games but money can only go to the build so..)

What keyboard though i don't see it in your build ? I guess if he really want the colour scheme then it's fine

Oh my bad if it didnt make it in there. Its in the pc part picker link tho. Here you go. I am trying right now to talk him into buy a cheaper cooler master board with the same switches because i think this board is over priced at 150$

Get him a k70 or a g910+. The g910+ is at $99 on amazon right now it's way better then that overpriced keyboard http://www.amazon.com/Logitech-Mechanical-Keyboard-Tactile-High-Speed/dp/B009C98NPY/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1427099575&sr=8-1&keywords=logitech+mechanical

Do y'all know of a good keyboard with no back light with cherry greens. Thats what he really wants. They keyboard listed was just a price place holder.

oh yeah the g710+  woops but i though your friend want cherry mx brown. I still think the g710+ is a better keyboard though the g910+ has so many questionable design.
