Phantom 630 Triple monitor gaming/3d Animation

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello!

I've been planning a new build for some time now and stumbled on this forum, learned a great many things, and have since been inspired to build a new computer.

The main goals for this build

  • Multiple Monitor Gaming
  • 3d Animation, Rendering, Some CAD eventually.
  • Learn how to overclock, sleeve cables of various types, setup water cooling

This will be quite the long term project so for now I have settled on a few things that will allow me to get a running machine for the time being wink.gif

And now for the parts list!!!


If anybody has any tips on upgrade paths from here I'd love to accept your advice. Also I have a pretty alright budget for video cards later, around 1200, What gpu setups do you think would be best to meet my goals?

I've only just placed the order for the case, bluray drive, and Swiftech h220. More to come ! Plus Pics!

I noticed the build logs are more fun with pics wink.gif

A 3970x w/ a 660Ti is so unbalanced.

I'd go minimum 2 660Tis or 2 7950s with this build, especially with what you want to throw at it.

How about you save some cash by getting the 3930k and grab another GPU? That'd be just fine then.

I already have the proc unfortunately otherwise I'd consider it. Though I got a stellar deal on this one, and the 660 ti is a start, and ill be putting that into my other pc once I finalize the gpus for this build unless I decide to go with multiple 660 ti's.

I'll trade you a 3930k tongue.gif

Nah, but for real. 660Ti's aren't bad, but having one with such an extreme proc is just.. overkill? lol.

If it works, use it. Good luck

Excited to see what comes of this, OP! Subbed, and good luck!

Also, for $1,200 you might consider three GTX 670s (3gb) in 3-way SLI for bling-bling factor, or a GTX 690.
You've got tons of possibilities with your budget.
