New at building PC's, need help on my new Build

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hey guys so im new at building my own PC's. I want to build a PC for gaming and video rendering.

Here are my options:

Lga 2011: Asus p9x79 Pro with a 3930K or a 3820

Lga 1155: Asus Maximus V Formula with a 3770K

Graphics: 1 GTX 680 or 2 GTX 680 probably Asus DC2T versions or 1 or 2 HD7970 from Asus too

RAM: 8Gb DDR3 or 16Gb DDR3.

HDD: Probably a WD Black 1TB

SSD: Samsung 840 120GB or 250GB (this will depend on the other choices).

PSU: Corsair AX 860i or 1200i

Cooling: Corsair H100i, probably ill be updating it to custom watercooling.

Can i have your opinion on this?

Which would be the best way?

The rest of the money will go for a Monitor and a new keyboard.

It only will be bought in summer.

Thanks.

If you're going to purchase this in the summer, why not wait to see what Intel has in store (Haswell)?

But otherwise yes, it looks solid

Since you're going mid-high end, might as well go with the 840 Pro too instead of the 840

That's a good option, ill wait for Haswell CPU's to come out and if they are worth the money ill probably get one.

The 840 Pro its a good idea, im dont know much about SSD's im still doing some researches on them.

I would highly recommend setting a side part of your budget for a catleap or similar 1440p IPS

In cpu's the i7 1155 socket will be a budget rendering rig with gaming on the side, but if you are a serious in rendering, the i7 2011 socket will offer better raw power, but will cost you enough buck and probably split you wallet in half.

in ram, the 8GB is more than enough in gaming, but if your going for rendering machines, the more the merrier, and you might consider faster speed and timing, besides capacity.

in psu, the ax860i is more than enough even with 2 gtx 680+i7 3930k, no need to go for ax1200i your not going to use that extra wattage.

the rest are pretty much said.

Well i was thinking about that memory, its 2133MHz, 16GB(4modules).

http://www.kingston.com/datasheets/KHX21C11T2K2_16X.pdf

This one for Dual Channel. Probably i will have to paint the heat spreaders on both since they dont match the build if i go a Maximus V.

No doubt about it, if your rendering videos, go with the socket 2011. The extra cores and full PCI lanes makes a big difference.

If you decide on a higher resolution monitor or two monitors make sure you get a GPU with at least 2GB VRAM.

Would a Rampage IV Extreme be worth the money or is a P9X79 Pro enough to go with a 3930K

Depends on what you think is considered "worth the money" You can get an ASRock X79 Extreme6 that will perform just as great, but for much less.
