So I had to set aside this project for a few months due to some RL issues but I am hoping I can finally finish it as I have had my case, cpu, and motherboard just sitting in a corner doing nothing.
I feel like I have the RAM and PSU figured out.
Figure its got CAS9 so thats good although have thought about doing the 1866 instead: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231626
Just don't know if it is worth the extra 50 bucks.
PSU I am either going to do the corsair AX860 or the Seasonic 860, kind of leaning towards the Seasonic but honestly I think they are the exact same CPU... just rebranded so I might end up doing the Corsair as it is a little cheaper.
Then I come to the graphics card which I am struggling with. The 780 came out and I am VERY tempted to get it .I have the money on hand for it and it seems like it is a GPU that will last me a few years and I can probably end up picking up another one in 8-12 months and run it in SLI. But for the meantime I would be running it as a solo GPU. Other possibilities were for the 7970 6GB or dual 7950s in CF. Although someone told me that I can't run EVE in windowed mode and have Crossfire still working which is an issue. Hence leading me to the 780 again. Haha kind of wanting someone to talk me down from the 650 dollar GPU.
Then cooling comes into play. I have though about doing the Noctua DH14 as a temporary thing just so I can have something in there for now and have a system running. Then maybe move to a custom loop for the CPU and GPU.
Storage I honestly haven't looked at but will most likely end up what is just a good deal at the time and get a 256gb SSD or maybe 512gb if there is a deal. And a 2TB or so HDD.
Help is appreciated. Sorry it took so long for a reply guys.
