Upgrading from an e8400 to a 3930k

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I want my new pc to be able to handle heavy gaming, photoshopping and video editing
Heres my build

3930k (with the silver arrow)
Asus RIVE
G.skill 16gb
evga gtx 690
Corsair 850tx
Crucial 256gb ssd (planning to buy more space in the future)
2x LG e2442tc 24" monitor

My current pc has served me well for all these years, but i think its time for a big upgrade.

What do you guys think?

The build looks great. Is there a reason for getting the 690 over two 680's or two 670's with your build. You would actually get better performance out of one of those two card setups in sli than the 690 for the same or a cheaper price. Just something to think about.

Looks good...agreed though, I'd snag two single GPU cards over a single dual GPU card.

I agree on the SLI 670 or 680, the 690 is slightly slower, you'll get much more out of SLI setup than with a 690.

Although if it was me i'd jump on 2x 7970's since they are far cheaper and perform the same as 2x GTX680's gaming. And if you ever decide on a 3rd monitor you have the vram already there to take advantage of.

Power supply may not be sufficient for two 680s and a healthy dose of overclock all around. I'd recommend a 1000w, this will also keep you in the PSU's optimal efficiency range.

Other then that, I have effectively the same build! And it phenomenal! thumb.gif

Nope

@OP - If you do go with the Silver Arrow (whichever variant) make sure you're not picking double decker ram. Also make sure you install the ram prior to installing the heatsink. Even if the clearance is fine it's impossible to wedge ram sticks in with the two closer ram slots with the tower in place.

i did consider sli 670s or 680s, but the main reasons i picked the 690 is because it draws less power, and it's a lot more quiet than the SLI configurations...
really, it's just the fan noise =\

and thanks for letting me know about the ram stick size. that flew right over my head when i considered a big air cooler.

if you do photoshopping I would make sure the videocard support the program for faster editing.

I was primarily referencing a PSU's efficiency. the TX only has peak efficiency at around ~45-50% load.

But good read nonetheless! +rep.
