By the way, a disk for the bulk will be used and it's supposed to be upgraded to SLI after a year. Also, a more rigorous overclocking may be done after 2 years.

Not sure how much of a value the OC board will do for you considering you'll be running on air but it depends on how much you think the bios options will benefit you.

In this day and age I don't see high frequency being worth much in your average-gaming environment so if it was my choice I would go with 1600/1866 at cl8 or better if you can.

Hrm, so you think I should drop a ton of cost from CPU/maybe mobo/RAM and drop it on GPU?

It sounds a bit extreme. CPU can't be that useless.

I'm not encoding full time or anything but..


Wait a second, you have an extreme edition CPU:) you..

Looks nice except, I'd drop the 4770k for a 4670k if it's just for gaming. Then I would drop the 840 pro for a Sandisk Extreme, same speed less money. The AXSeries is also unnecessary for single card, even SLI, still unnecessary. Go with a Rosewill Capstone 550-M or 650-M if you are going SLI. Lastly with how much the D14 costs, might as well go with AIO. Corsair H110, NZXT Kraken X60, or Swiftech H220 will make the D14 look like stock heatsink. Especially with Haswell. AIO coolers are easier to install, easier to maintain, easier to remove, they offer lower temps and lastly cost about as much as an expensive high end heatsink.

Besides that looks nice. Also, don't listen to the "over 1600MHz memory useless" nonsense. Memory is so inexpensive now, it would be pointless to buy anything slower when the price differences are so minimal. Not to mention, a member on here did a test that high frequency memory does increase framerates. Also, daily day to day system tasks do seem snappier and speeds seem improved. I went from 1600 to 1866 to 2133. I felt the difference between all three speeds. thumb.gif

Didn't note when I mentioned frequency I meant the memory. Which processor option you choose generally doesn't change so it's easier to argue other components.

It's not just for gaming. Why does everyone assume that? I guess it's a "all others are little people" syndrome, anyway.

Thanks for the SSD suggestion. I'll look into it. Though I suspect the 'II' model might not be cheaper, at least here.

Concerning PSU, I'm indeed lost in terms of being firm on what to get but realhardtechx.com suggests 850 for 2 X 770. And I may even play with overclocking so, I'd need something that works. I highly doubt it's a good idea to get "just" what you need since one overclocking here or there or a slight surge once a year or something that goes above it and it's either dead or dying or at least shutting devices off or being unstable.

I thought it was just for gaming because you didn't mention about needed the HT. There are very few advantages to having hyper threading other than programs that actually utilize it. Which is why I said, might be a better idea to drop to the 4670k.

The Sandisk Extreme II is about the same price as the 840 Pro, but with the original Extreme you are saving about $20. Both are spectacular units. The Extreme II is about the same as the Extreme. When compared to the 840 Pro they are about equal in performance.

Doesn't really matter what a CPU calculator says, two 770's could run on 650 watts all day, with overclocked CPU and both GPU's overclocked. Two 570's and an overclock CPU only draw about 500 watts from the wall. 570's draw way more power the the 770's can. It's not a recommendation on "just" what you need or the "bare minimum" I'm telling you what you actually need and that anything more than that is highly unnecessary and a waste of money. We don't steer people in the wrong direction here, trust me. thumb.gif

I don't like that quality of being absolute to be honest. You claim you are unequivocally right and that's a sign of the opposite. Never be certain, even if you have a Nobel prize.

The fact of the matter is that realhardtechx.com, a site more dedicated to PSUs - and respected by the PSU subforum here - explicitly states to get 850. Now, I don't blindly follow them either, I have a very good reason to not go to 'just' what I need. Getting 'just' what I need is a suicide. Never get to 'just what you need' or even to 20% more is what I learned from Engineering courses and there's a reason for that: Something may work fine for a while with 'just', but don't complain if it dies or at least misbehaves rarely or even dies sooner.

Anyway, thanks again for HD suggestion, it might help me (if this country has the model well distributed).

edit: Oops, I forget about rep in this forum, added.
