Haven't build Pc for looong time. What should I get?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Primary Use: Gaming, watching movies,anime,tv shows. Also some school work.

What I already have:
3x 2560 x 1600 Monitors (Didn't pay for it, got it under some circumstances. Would've spent money on pc parts instead of buying it, but now that I have it, I want to keep it)l
5x SSD (512gb) (also got under circumstances)
1x HD (1tb)
32gb ram

What I need
-Big case with a lot of room for the SSD's and Hard drives, and possible more. I was thinking of getting a 1 or 2 3-4tb internal drives.
-Something that can let me game on the 3 screens with decent frame rate (Around 60), on high. I can play without Anti aliasing and stuff.
-Can play skyrim with a looot of mods on 3 screens (ENB, texture mods, etc)
-Air cooling, unless it's a all In one CPU cooler.
- Aesthetics < Performance
-EVGA graphics card if Nvidia, any brand for amd.
-Mouse and keyboard
-Wireless Internet Card
-headphones (was thinking ATH-m50's)

My budget is around 3k. I was thinking of getting 2 titans, because of the 6gb ram that the 780 would not have enough of. But I'm not really sure on what I should get, what mobo, what case, etc. Would like help, thanks!

for multi monitor gaming you would do better with AMD cards; maybe 3-4 7970's would blitz any game you threw at it, but because you want an EVGA card (for some reason) you are limited only to nvidia cards

Actually, now that you said, Im fine with either.

I have set up both ATI and Nvidia multi display systems in the past, both are just as easy to do, wthenshaw is right though for such high res monitors you will need to multi gpu up to run things nicely at native res, with a decent frame buffer on each card.

I am loving my new Haswell, thought it would be best getting the latest socket too. For performance I have gone intel, I previously had an AMD cpu as that was a budget build. For gaming you don't need to go i7 either.

Good luck with your choices smile.gif
