New build "Toxic Ghost"

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I am looking to build a gaming pc because I come to realize that I like pc gaming over console gaming. The computer I am using right now is a dell studio 1555 laptop.(It doesn't have a dedicated graphics card.) So basically i'm luck to get 15 fps in some games. I am looking to spend around $1000 on this build.

http://pcpartpicker.com/user/Turtle6688/saved/21wL I am calling this build the Toxic ghost because I want to go with a green and white(I understand there will be some black...) themed build. I am looking to water cool in the future and need some help picking out the parts. I will be gaming on a single monitor, but I would like to buy a second one in the future(not to game with though(if it matters)) http://www.newegg.co...N82E16824236310 Monitor is not included into price. For the gpu I had picked out this because of he white pcb http://nl.hardware.info/nieuws/36147/kfa2-kondigt-volledig-witte-geforce-gtx-770-ltd-oc-aan but it is not out yet (might go for dual in future)... for lighting I am going with 2 sets of these in green http://www.bitfenix.com/global/en/products/premium-modding/alchemy-led-strips/ . As for the red dragon on the mobo heat sinks i would like to tape the ***** out of it and paint it green. Also i will try to add little accents of green around the case to help with the green and white theme.

Tell me what you think and give me any suggestions for my custom loop.

Hey your post is really hard to read, and the links don't go where you want them. Can you post something a bit better in the future?

My build will be called Toxic Ghost,
My parts are: HERE

CPU i5-4670K 3.4GHz - $239.99
Mobo MSI Z87-GD65 - $189.99
RAM Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3- $79.40
SSD A-Data XPG SX900 256GB - $169.99
Case NZXT Phantom 630 $161.74
PSU Corsair Professional 650W $94.99

Things I'd like to future proof for:
- Water cooling and help on parts would be helpful.
- Single or Dual monitor (not to game with though newegg link did not work for me
- GTX 770
- Lighting I am going with 2 sets of these in green

Ok for my suggestions now as I am upgrading again too.

1. Cooling, if you are going to do waterbased cooling do it from the onset, however with your setup it does not seem that you are doing any heavy O/C. The main reason to have watercooling / phase is if you really need it down. Personally with yoursetup it does not make sense to me.

2. PSU I have been building for years and my suggestion is if you want to future proof yourself buy a stronger PSU 860 -1300 watt. The wattage does not mean you will use that much. However, if you go titan, or something more hungry in the future it's nice. For example, I bought an AX860 and did not anticipate getting 2 titans. I have had it less than a month and am now selling it on anandtech forums (need rep why I am helping too smile.gif) to sell them lol, For me I just bought a G2 EVGA 1300 watt. With your setup I would go 860+watt

3. Ram / SSD. If I were building I would go for 16 GB / 24GB. What windows do you plan to run? The benefit of 16GB is that you can make one a ram drive and use that with your SSD. I am not a fan of your SSD choice but then again I never heard of that brand. I just got a Samsung Pro 840 512GB and it's lightning fast

4. Case, looks good, but this is another area I would touch on. Certain pieces will last you years. I spent $1,000 Custom modding my case in 1999/2000 its a Full server tower Pc-70 USB (see photos), it has lasted me to 2013. I still have no intentions of buying a new one but that comes out to $76/year. In reality now I would never spend more than $250 but with my mods, etc things were much more expensive back then.

5. Cpu / Mobo If you have time to wait and don't mind spending a few 100 more Ivybridge-e 4930k. Should be out first week of September. Which is the next release before 2014 where the cpu size goes to 14nm

Looking forward in hearing what you do
