First time PC builder

RonKnehcs
Hello, 

 

 

First of all I want to thank you and your team for the Youtube videos, they help alot to gain knowledge about computers.

 

I'm currently planning to build my own PC and my buget is €4.000,-

The PC will be ussed for games like Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and Company of Heroes 2.

The PC will also be ussed for video editing with 4K gopro movies on Adobe Premiere Pro CC.

 

The reason for this post is to check my findings to you guys.

I learned that you guys realy, realy know what you are talking about when it comes to computers.

All my PCs and laptops from the past so far are bought on advies of a friend. buget was alway the bottleneck here.

This time I want to build my own PC because I want a PC the can handle a couple of years and not a few months.

My knowledge on the subject is very basic, that's why I post this.

 

I already got:

A headset for good sound, atleast I think it's good, the Logitech G930.

A mouse, the Logitech M570 Wireless Trackball

 

What I need is a monitor and a complete computer case.

Based on my own research your youtube videos I come to the following:

 

Monitor - Asus MG278Q Black

I eventualy want 2 more monitors (3 in total) because I think it will help making videos easier.

 

Videocard - Asus GeForce GTX Titan X

Because of its 3x DisplayPort 1.2 and because it's awesome.

 

Motherboard - Asus Maximus VIII Extreme/Assembly

Because of the good reviews.

 

Processor - Intel Core i7-6700K Boxed

Because of its speed.

 

RAM - Corsair Dominator Platinum CMD16GX4M4B3600C18

Because of the good reviews.

 

Storage for OS - Asus ROG Raidr - PCI-Express-SSD

Because it's the fastest.

 

Storage for data - Sandisk Extreme Pro SSD 480GB

Because it's fast.

 

Computercase - NZXT Phantom Series 530 Black

Because of your review and it looks good.

 

CPU cooler - Cooler master V8 Ver.2 - Voor een 1151 socket

It look good, I hope it fits.

 

Power supply - Cooler Master Silent Pro Hybrid 1300W

Maybe way to much power but I like a silent computer to.

 

 

* I apologize in advance for the errors in my english.

Holy moly you do not need a Titan X for CS:GO, thats overkill even for 4K, and you're at 1440p. So I'd say unless you plan on playing more demanding games like Witcher 3 and MGSV tone the specs down a shit tonne. Here lemme give you a list.

That's as expensive as you wanna go for 144FPS+ at 1440p CS:GO, even less should be fine.

Getting a higher wattage unit doesn't necessarily mean you will get a quieter system. You need to remember that a 550w PSU @ 100% load will run cooler than a 1300w @ 100% load at the same efficiency level. Because a higher wattage unit will be hotter at 100%, it may required a higher RPM fan to effectively cool it, as well as a higher start up voltage.

 

You should do more research on the actual noise level of the power supply, rather than assuming it may be the case based off of how it is rated. Otherwise, you may end up wasting your money.

Thank you for your reply, and the others offcourse.

 

The PC that you created at PCpartpicker, does it run BF4 at maximum? 

And how about Adobe Permiere Pro CC. Does this PC run it smoothly.

Thank you for doing that by the way.

 

I know that I might overdid it a little with the one that I created.

But I want a fast and smooth system that can run anything smooth and fast.

Based on your comments is the system I created a but too much.

Unless I want to play the latest games like Witcher 3 and Doom 4.

Then the system is good... Right?

 

I really appreciate the comments and advice that you give me. I don't want to give you the idea that your advice doesn't mean anything.

But I want to stick to my budget of €4.000 and make the best possible system for gaming and video editing.

 

So the system I created, does it work al together or is there a major bottleneck somewhere?

 

Thanks again for your time and comment.
