So the only difference here is you would be spending $225 less. Like I said, I know you have a big budget, but it's actually quite stupid to spend that much more when there's no good reason to do it other than just "I want the extra power". Extra power for what? You're looking at two 7870s! It's not like you're looking at like 3 or 4 7970s with heavy overclocking.
This rig is for boasting as well. I have a lot of spare money, and I want to be the big kid on the block. Also I would use this rig for other things this forum does not like discussion over.

and what are you going to be really doing with this computer? (gaming, coding, webdev, OSX dev ... wrong section)

Please answer those three things and we can help you a HELL OF a lot more then just saying MONEY GO! AND I HAVE NO IDEA REALLY!

And the HEADSET YOU WANT TO BUY SUCK! The wireless is horable, I have both that and a G930, the G930 is Far better with more range and better build quality hands down ... DONT WAIST YOUR MONEY!

WebDesign and coding are the same thing o.o I would be coding in C++, Java, Php, HTML5, Python, and other languages. And I will be gaming a lot while recording and skyping.

I don't understand what an ATX or SUPER ATX is and stuff, which is why I am asking for help on motherboards.

They perform just as good (sometimes better) and run just as quiet (sometimes quieter) than those all in one water kits like the H100i's. My personal choice is the Noctua NH-D14, you want even better performance you can replace out the fans (noctua fans are decent, but there are better ones out there, but the heat sink is a beast to be sure).

As for the memory argument, it depends on what you are doing, but generally speaking 8 is plenty. I would focus more on buying the faster RAM, rather than shooting for higher space. Keep in mind future upgrades though. If your board can support 16 (almost all can) then I would recommend getting two sticks of 4GB just in case you find a need for more RAM in the future. (Yes, have found many ways to cap out my 8GBs of RAM in my system and wished I had more at times... so it is possible... but if you don't need it, then I wouldn't waste the money.)

Agreed, that is more PSU than you would ever need, at 1200W. I have one... I don't use it... not even close... course I got mine back in 2008, when power consumption kept going up each cycle and I thought I would need it to survive (GTX 295s... stupid power consuming... blahhhh!). Now, you wont need it most likely. What you need to make sure of, is how many amps you get per 12v Rail. And how many 12v Rails you have on your PSU. This will determine what you can and can't do with it. You could buy a 1200W PSU with all that power going to 1 rail and it would be completely wasted (ok, exaggeration... I dont think you could actually do this). You will need one rail for each graphics card you plan to purchase, you will need 1 rail for periphials (CD, Fans, HDD, etc), and that's pretty much how you do it. Take a look at the sticker on the side of the PSU for the graphics rail, and see how many amps you get, then you multiply amps x volts to get your watts. As long as it is right over the max TDP of the card you are golden. Everything is going the way of lower power these days, so getting right at that mark will make your PSU last practically until it burns itself out.

Lastly on the monitors, bigger is better. I would not go less than 27 if you are sitting at a standard computer desk. I also recommend a second screen to do other things on. The thing to note on monitors is to not get sucked into the marketing hype... this is really bad with monitors. If you are getting an LED it is actually an LCD with LED backlight. This is important for contrast ratios. LCDs have dynamic contrast, and you want this number to be pretty high. Will help give you more vibrant colors. Second thing to watch out for is refresh rate hype. Unless you plan to do 3D you do not need more than 60Hz. its just a waste of money. Finally you want a low response time (1 or 2ms is about the norm).

Hope that helps!

PS: You were at a loss on motherboards, What you want is to make sure it has all the latest technologies on it. Shouldn't be an issue, but just something to make sure of. SATA 3, USB 3, PCI-E 3.0, look for one that also supports a high clock memory (at least to match whatever clock speed you are buying), and you should be fine. Everything else is likely just going to come down to preference.

Thanks dude. Like I said, I am just going to be gaming with this. I do not even remember putting a 1200 Watt PSU though o.o

I think I am clueless on the monitor's as well. Could you reffer me to 2 monitor's that are 27"+ and are under $800/each?



Thanks all for trying to help me. I know I may seem clueless in this area but I have been on other forums and such just looking at hardware and learnign 95% on my own.

There is absolutely nothing that you could do with your rig as it is to require a 1200W PSU. The 650W PSU I am recommending is overkill enough as it is. Be "the big kid on the block" by being the one who has a perfectly balanced build that is rock-solid, overclocked very cleanly, and has loads and loads of power. Make others envy at your build because of how perfect it is, not because you have a 1200W PSU.

 

Also, you're not going to be "the big kid on the block" by getting two 7870s. Get two or three 7970s, GTX 680s, or two or three GTX Titans. I mean, seriously: you have "thousands" of dollars to spend, you want this rig to be "for boasting", and you want to be "the big kid on the block". That's not going to happen by getting two 7870s and then powering your rig with a friggin' 1200W PSU. That's ridiculous and I can safely say "you're doing it wrong"! I apologize, but I'm just being honest.

 

If you get two or three 7970s, 680s, or two or three Titans, then I will help you pick out a good PSU for that. Having two 7870s and a 1200W PSU is like wearing a condom designed for huge men even though your thing is no bigger than a cocktail wiener.

I was just suggesting what to get tongue.gif What is so good about the Titans? Should I get 3 Titans, or 2 680's/7970's? How about 4 Titans vs 3 7970's?

One Titan is better than one 680 or one 7970, so I would go with maybe 2-3 Titans for the most e-peen on the block. :)

How much does a Titan cost? I don't see it on NewEgg.

If you want to go with a 3d vision surround setup....get 3 asus vg278h monitors (27", 120Hz) and 3 4GB 680's. Would definitely suggest watercooling whatever you put together...with the kind of rig you're building, it'll throw some heat in more ways than one. 6 monitor setups (whether 3d or not) is madly impressive but tough to setup (takes a LOT of space for mounting and viewing properly) and actually game on.

Poor mouse and keyboard choices in my opinion. With your budget, you should get a Ducky Shine II and a Razer Deathadder.
