Good 1800$ gaming build ?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I'm actually shopping for the parts of a new gaming computer and here's what I have planned for the moment. It costs around 1750-1800$ on Newegg Canada. Now, I chose two GTX 760 in SLI because the pair costs 530$ and it totally beats a GTX 780. What do you think of this gaming build ? It is not buy yet, so I can make changes.

Case: Corsair Carbide 500R

CPU: Intel Core i5 4670K Haswell 3.4 GHz

Cooler: Corsair Hydro H100i

Motherboard: Gigabyte Z87X-UD3H

GPU: EVGA GTX 760 ACX Superclocked (x2)

Power supply: Seasonic G Series 750W GOLD

HDD: Seagate Barracuda 2 TB

SSD: Corsair Neutron 128 GB

Memory: Corsair Vengeance 8 GB @ 1600 MHz

This would be a much better setup @ C$1750.

Much better case, GPUs, CPU Cooler, memory (Haswell has a ridiculously strong IMC). And it also has a higher capacity SSD.

Overall, a much better choice if you are willing to order some parts from places other than Newegg.
