New Gaming rig build

post #1 of 40
Thread Starter 
Hey I back to square one yet again making a gaming rig to last a long time thumb.gif I'm trying to keep my budget around $2500 AUD okay, so here is what I've got so far.
I don't plan on overclocking as I don't find much use of doing so lol tongue.gif
Components:
CPU: i5 4670
GPU: Gigabyte GeForce GTX 780 OC
Motherboard: ASRock H87 Performance
RAM: G.Skill Sniper 8GB (2x4GB)
Case: Nzxt 410 Phantom
Cooling: Intel Liquid Cooled Thermal Solution
PSU: Antec High Current Gamer 900w
http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=wish_lists&wlcId=220716&action=wish_lists That's everything I plan for my rig as reference for my budget wink.gif
That's all the main components any suggestions? I want this build to last a fair while but still be reasonably cheap to my wallet biggrin.gif

If you only going to have one video card you dont need more then this

You should not buy more watts then you need unless you want a second or third video card

Okay thanks that put my price down a fair whack

If you watch this video you can see how little power hardware really uses

Those money you saved on the PSU should go into a better motherboard

The Gigabyte Z87X-UD3H is a board where you get a lot for your money

Yes its 75$ more but its 75$ you will have spent well

Oh sory missed that

But yes that MSI board looks better

Am not a motherboard expert so cant really tell you that much about motherboards

Those Antec PSU´s you looked at they are not made by Antec if you did not know

The 520 watts is a Seasonic M12II sold as an Antec unit

Its not bad its just a bit old but you can finder newer units that are far worse
