New build for gaming 2k ish budget (updated list)

post #1 of 33
Thread Starter 
Its time for a new gaming PC as this current rig with a core2 6700 and win xp just cant run much even on ultra low setting anymore biggrin.gif
I spent all afternoon yesterday putting something together at newegg, I plan to buy everything from them.
Rig will be used for gaming and I don't plan to overclock at this time.I also don't want to have to upgrade 9 months down the road so im ok with a little overkill.

This is the parts list:
Mobo- ASUS SABERTOOTH Z87

Processor- Intel Core i7-4770K Haswell 3.5GHz

RAM- G.SKILL Sniper Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231460

Case- Fractal Design Define XL R2

HS- SilverStone Heligon HE01
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103189

Monitor-do not need

The only thing i have no clue about is the heatsink I just kinda threw it in there as a placeholder so I'm going need a suggestion for a heatsink and fan that will play nice with the mobo/ram and case, I dont want to use water so please dont suggest that.

So what do you think?If you had 2k to blow on a gaming pc that needs to last at least a year before upgrading and also must be air cooled what would you recommend?

This is the parts list: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

So what do you think?If you had 2k to blow on a gaming pc that needs to last at least a year before upgrading and also must be air cooled what would you recommend?

1) Ditch the ASUS motherboard go with an ASRock Z87 Extreme6
2) If you are spending $80 on memory, go with a better kit: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231667 (Yes, it's compatible with your motherboard and CPU)
3) Your PSU is way too much for someone never going SLI or overclocking all their components, this is much better for your needs: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151119
4) If you need a storage drive, go with the WD 1TB Blue over the Black, it's a faster drive: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822236339
5) That heatsink is nothing special, if you are spending that much money go with this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835181035 (It will be easier to install, will give you lower temps, and of course be easier to maintain)

Now to the important stuff. If you don't plan on overclocking, any reason why you are going with a K-Series processor and a Z87 motherboard? You could save close to $200 or more dollars by just using the stock heatsink, not getting a K-Series processor or a motherboard that allows overclocking. Realize that overclocking is pretty simple now with Intel, and there are tons of guides available. You could be sitting at a 4.2-4.5GHz overclock quite quickly. Which is why I see no point in "no overclocking at this time." If you are never going to overclock, no real point in spending the extra cash on the cooler, the overclocking motherboard and K-Series processor. Just a waste of money. However, against that idea, is the fact that overclocking is relatively straight-forward now- a-days and is basically "free" performance (if you already plan on spending the money on the extra components allowing you to be able to overclock).

why ditch the Asus and go for the asrock?

he is not tight on budget and he just have to chose motherboard that suits his needs + what he like from features yes stuff like Fan xpert 2 and on-board audio etc.. so the mobo he just have to chose what he find good , then check with us if it is good quality and have capability to overclock

for ram I always suggest 1866 mhz it is the sweet spot for ram not too much latency also not slow same time wont feel the extra speed in windows with 2400mhz and wont gain that much fps vs the 1866 mhz, because it is windows 8 i suggest going with 16GB it is good ofc depends on u if u will only play a game and nothing else no multitasking no need , there is no game out there that need more then 8 GB but in windows 7 multitasking vs 8 there is extra ram used so 8gb not going to be perfect for 8

and yes depends on what you going to do with the rig then we can save u lots of $$$

Good question are you going to Sli ? like in future maybe add more monitors or 2nd Gpu ?

For cooler you don't want any water cooling even something like closed loop from corsair swiftech etc..?

Nice build. No major issues that I can see. I just went through and built an entire AMD setup for you and realized that this is in the Intel forum...so I won't post it here. If you are interested PM me.

1) I used asus and gigabyte in the past and was happy with them so I really only looked at them this time(creature of habit i guess)
2)I chose that kit because it was listed under the QVL for that mobo only question I have is the timings are higher for the one you suggested and i thought lower was better?
3)The vid card listed a 600w psu or better as a requirement so I chose something above that, can i use the 550w without any problems?
4)Sounds good I will swap the black out for the blue, for some reason I thought it was the other way around black better then the blue.
5)Yea im not dead set on that heatsink I really had no idea what to pick and was looking for help with that but I will not use water It must be air cooled.The room the computer is in does not have ac so in the summer it can get quite hot in there and the stock heatsink/fan just will not cut it I need something a little beefier.However I will not use water, I dont want to have to check the water lvls ect ect.

I used to be interested in tinkering with my computer but now im older and have no interest in it at all.I work 40+ hours a week in a physical job (construction) and when i get home last thing I want to do is mess with the computer.So with that in mind I chose higher end parts now thinking I can go a little longer before having to upgrade if I were to overclock it is my understanding that that it would require some tweeking to get it stable and then require temp monitoring through its use again something i just dont want to have to do it anymore.I would like to have as close to rock solid as I can get with as little input required by me and am willing to pay a little more (overkill) for it.

Thanks for the ram tip I will look into some 1866mhz over the 1600mhz, and I planed to go up to 16gigs later as needed but for now 8 will get me by.

Strictly gaming and watching streams checking websites sometimes while gaming is pretty much what it will be used for.

Down the road sli and a second monitor is a real good possibility so I would like to keep that open.

No water at all 100% air please biggrin.gif



thanks Erick but I would like to stay with Intel and nvidia.

Fair enough mate. At $2K Intel is definately the way to go. But I wanted to offer a alternative just in case.

Build! (Click to show) Here's a tone-down starter build for gaming, its around $1700+, its based on i5 haswell quad-core that is best for gaming and 720p live streaming, I include a H100i since haswell cpu's due to its small footprint air-coolers have a hard time cooling, so as for beginner close loop watercoolers are very good and are maintenance free. I used a smaller capacity ssd about 250GB as twice it, the price is unjustifiable. I also used a Gskill memory at faster speed 1866, black heatsink. I used the Western Digital Blue as its is much faster than its older brother, since its uses a single platter. I use a Seasonic 750W psu if you decide to SLI the gtx 780. I use also a fractal case with side window & water-cooling option, at less price. Over-all black theme. This is just an alternative.
