New Rig. Have a couple questions....

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi guys, I asked this else-where on another forum but maybe this is more for what I'm interested. I know this is cases section, and cases and mother-board are my PRIMARY questions and RAM.. But I couldn't find a "Custom Built" section... Going to paste my other post, but I would love some help!

~~~~~
Hi guys, I'm finally building an entire new rig over the next month (Ordering PSU/Video card next week) and hoping for "okays" suggestions and looks overs. The Video card is 100% For sure, the 4770K is also 100%. Everything else is up for debate.

Case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811146068 . I've personally set up rigs in this case before, and it's alright. Not exactly my style but I'm really bad at picking cases. However I wanted lower $100s and PLENTY of room. Would have preferred like a nice LED Fan guage or something. Would -really- love case input. I prefer black and blue or red type cases. Darker colors.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157372 Mobo. Was a tough choice between this and Asus. I never followed 1150 until recently so don't know how they all perform. I don't overclock often but sometimes I do. Need 2 PCI-E 3.0 (prefer x16/x8 or x16/x16). Would love inputs on 1150 Mobos.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814121779 Best 780 I've seen besides the Galaxy but the Galaxy isn't official clocked yet so aiming for this one.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817182239 PSU
Honestly the lights don't mean anything to me, the unconnectable cords and 1KW ware amazing. Curious as to reviews of better suggestions? I -didn't- wanna spend this much on a CPU so if anyone has good alternative? I just really hate routing. But I'll probably sink a lot of time in it with this one.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819116901 4770K. I mean, no real options here.


http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820147193 Really excited to try new 840. I currently have a 128GB old Samsung in here which I'll probably keep as Main ans use 256 for gaming.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233360 RAM. THIS is where I got torn as well. I saved $40 by not getting the Vengeance but I'm not overly familiar with timing or latency. I did aim for 1866 because 2400 is retardedly expensive. Would prefer to stay under $160. And no, it doens't have to be 16GB. if you can find AMAZING RAM for less than $160 and it's only 8GB, that's fine too.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103099 CPU Heat-sink. I swear by this (Also ordered a second fan for it for push-pull)

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835146007 Side fan for the case I got.

Any suggestions? Would really love some input, on any of the devices. RAM/Case/Mobo I'd -really- appreciate some input, those are my weakest areas.

I truly appreciate anyone's thoughts! Thanks! (Ordering Video card next week with PSU and then ordering rest of rid probably mid September.)

Thanks! (Hoping links work)

This should have gone in the "Intel - General" forum because it's a general question about your Intel system. Don't make a new thread though because a moderator will move this eventually.

 

Anyway, the PSU is a good PSU but it's MAJOR overkill. You could power this system with a good quality-made 450W PSU. If you're considering future upgrades, then will you ever have more than one video card?

 

(I think that this is all I am able to contribute)

450W for a 780? In the future I'll likely go SLI 780 - Once the market is lowered for them by a large amount. Honestly the PSU is Interesting. I like the removable cords but honestly not much else of it is anything fond.

http://www.guru3d.com/articles_pages/geforce_gtx_780_sli_review,4.html

 

With one GTX 780 under full load in their system, their PSU pulled 340W from the wall outlet. Their CPU was idling, so I have to add about 150W for the 4770K overclocked and under full load. So, with the 4770K overclocked and under full load along with the GTX 780 being under full load, the PSU would then be pulling 490W from the wall outlet. This means that if the PSU is 90% efficient while pulling 490W from the wall outlet, then the computer is pulling 441W from the PSU. However, the gaming power draw will be lower at around 325-425W. So, a good quality-made 450W PSU is enough for that.

 

With two GTX 780s under full load in their system, their PSU pulled 544W from the PSU. Adding 150W again for the CPU, that makes the PSU pulling 694W from the wall outlet. So, if the PSU is 90% efficient while pulling 694W from the wall outlet, then the computer is pulling 624W from the PSU. Again, the gaming power draw will be lower at around 500-600W. So, a good 650W PSU is enough for this.

 

:)

 

If you are definitely going to go with a 2nd GTX 780, then get a good modular 650W PSU. Right now until the end of the day today, the 650W SeaSonic G Series is $59.99 with free shipping available after using the promo code and the $15 rebate: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151118
