Hello guys,

 

So i am going to get a new PC, and I would like to get some help, because I am not really familiar with this kind of Genre.

 

 

So my Budget is 1900$ and i live in the USA.

 

What perhiperals do I need:

-So i need a Monitor ( 24inch, IPS or TN)

-OS

 

What do PC components do you need:

-CPU

-Mobo

-SSD (256GB or just 120GB, mainly only used for the OS)

-HDD ( 2x1Tb or 1x2TB)

-AIO Cooler

-Case (not sure, but would like the Enthoo primo, Otherwise it should have atleast 2x3.0USB and Headphone connecters)

-PSU

-Thermal Paste

-RAM (would like 16GB)

 

What I am going to use this PC for:

-Heavy Gaming (for example: BF4, Arma2&3, Star Citizen, League of Legends, CSGO, Insurgency, Prison Architect. kinda all kinds of games)

-Programming (Microsoft Visual Studio 2013)

-Rendering videos (Sony Vegas 6)

 

Anything else we need to know:

- I got 1 GTX TITAN here at home (first series of the TITAN's(bought about September 2012))

- I am going to get 2xGTX 980 in September 2015 (2xGTX 980TI, if they will make them), so i dont want to upgrade my PSU there again.

I supose you will be encoding 4K now or eventually, 5960X is the processor to get.

AIO Cooler you might prefer H100i because of the 4 fans controller built-in or you don't this fan controller and want the Superior cooling of H105

Corsair RM/AXi are the best power supply for your needs for many reasons including silent operation when you work with your editiing software specially for sound, the PSU fan will turn on when you will start the rendering process since your rig would use more watts from it

Use the pre-applied thermal of the AIO, you can get few degrees lower if you use highest quality thermal paste but you have to apply it in the ''perfect'' way to get those few degrees less, if you don't your temp will be higher.

Getting a motherboard with a good built-in audio chip is a good thing.

Best RAM are Corsair Dominator Platnium, the speed don't matter on gaming but for rendering it does a lot so get the highest ram speed you can get that make sense.

SSDs Samsung 850 PRO

Hard drives I would say WD RED for storage but if you gonna rendering stuff from your mechanical hard drives, get Seagate SSHD for performance.

For your budget, the spec I laid down is fucking beast. When the new Intel stuff rolls out you wouldn't see much of an improvement. X99 is enthusiast class, and I'm guessing Intel will roll out the new stuff on the mainstream platform. So ya go X99, you can certainly afford it.  :D

Skylake will not come to Z97 since skylake will support DDR4 which Z97 does not support. Skylake will have Z170 and H170

Here you go (No MIR/Promo)

This is why you should not get an FX CPU for ANY scenario other than rendering on a budget http://linustechtips.com/main/topic/286142-fx-8350-r9-290-psu-requirements/?p=3892901 http://linustechtips.com/main/topic/266481-an-issue-with-people-bashing-the-fx-cpus/?p=3620861

do you have suggsetion for another Case. Don't really like the looks of it. Do you think i should go for the i7/5930k instead? How is the aufio on that motherboard (using Turtle Beach PX22). Why do you recommend Segeta instead of the WD Black?

Haswell + Skylake will be more expensive than Haswell-E (5820k) in the long run

- I am going to get 2xGTX 980 in September 2015 (2xGTX 980TI, if they will make them), so i dont want to upgrade my PSU there again.

 

I think by that time there will be something better...

One thing I (and anyone with more sense than money) recommend is bang for buck. You could get a WD Black if you want, you could even change the case, but you won't get much for it. With the budget you set, and your need for reliability, maybe switch for WD Blacks thats up to you. But I'd keep the N600 because it's great value, accompanies the CM 240m perfectly.
