Asus sabertooth z97 mark 2 to match my case

Noctua NH-D15 AIR COOLER

G-Skill sniper series 8gb ddr3 1866mhz

You might not need the Pro version of that SSD, the Evo will serve you excellently.

For the GPU, you should get something high end for 1080p, like the R9 390.

For the PSU, search up the PSU tier list from Tom's Hardware, and select something from the top 2 tiers.


LIBERATOR: Core i5 6400 @ 2.7GHz | GeForce GTX 670 2 GB | HyperX Fury 8GB DDR4 @ 2133 MHz | 250 GB Samsung 850 Evo SSD
My new build; Liberator, Check it out

The more friendly we are, the more helpful we are!

 

MY OLD BUILD (AKA PREBUILT MONSTROSITY)
INSANITY: AMD Athlon II X2 @ 3.0 GHz | Geforce GT 720 2 GB | 4 GB DDR3 @ 1333 MHz | 120 GB Silicon Power SSD | 500 GB Hitachi HDD

Change SSD to EVO

 

Change RAM to 1600mhz. 1866 no difference.

 

Corsair/evga/beQuiet/xfx/ any 650/700w

 

970 or 390.

 

Happy building  ;)

Or use the list that we already have on LTT... http://linustechtips.com/main/topic/406160-psu-ranking-and-tiers/  (but if you really wanna use Tom's Forum's list: http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/forum/id-2547993/psu-tier-list.html )

pick something higher than tier 3 in this list, used to be the exact same list as Tom's Hardware but now it's been updated to be a tad more specific about the the "quality" 


Looking at my signature are we now? Well too bad there's nothing here...
