1600$ budget PC i5-4670k build, what do you think?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
After 2 weeks of learning in the field of PC building, changing multiple times my plan, I finally have somewhat of a decent setup for the price, I think.

EDIT: My first post biggrin.gif

I only need to choose a PSU and a keyboard.

Tell me if you guys see any bad or overpriced parts, and what do you think would be best for the missing part.
Do not count the monitor in the 1600$ budget tongue.gif

I dont like the cooler. It looks to be a bit overpriced. Look into the closed loop liquid coolers like the corsair h100i. There are also some other options that perform very well or better. The noctua d-14 is a good one as it is a dual tower cooler instead of a single. Other then that your build looks great and should do very well. thumb.gif

Newegg currently has a sale on the original d-14. You might still be able to grab it. Do you really have to buy windows again? Can't remember the last time I had to purchase windows. My school gives me a copy for free. biggrin.gif

My main suggestion would be for you to get a smaller case like the nzxt vulcan or something cheap, unless you plan on watercooling or must have a big case just for the sake of it or if you want to crossfire/Sli in the future. Going with a $50-70 case will allow you to grab a 7970 which is much better than a 760. Someone on OCN located in Canada has a great deal on an h80i & coolermaster scout II case for $130...a freakin steal, if you don't mind buying used.

Other than that, It looks ok. Goodluck!

I don't plan to overclock to ridiculous speed, and system noise is something I want to eliminate. Completely. If possible.

After reading this I think I'll stick with the Noctua NH-U14S fan.

http://www.overclock.net/t/1361095/noctua-nh-d14-vs-h100i-pros-and-cons

NH-U14S performs nearly as well as the bulky NH-D14.

Sorry to be a bit off topic but... If you get yourself a GTX 760 you'll be playing decent games at 1080p i guess... Wouldn't the sound from the games or music you listen completely overpower the sound of your fans biggrin.gif ?

Also i'd get rid of the windows OS... And get some nice RED Phanteks cooler that would go perfect with that mobo XD(if you get that make sure your ram fits under the fan smile.gif )

just a personal opinion though...

This is a nice build except would probably look at a Seasonic G Series 550-650W over the Antec unit, and would swap the 840 Series for an 840 Evo about the same price now but far superior.
