Custom Travel PC for work and Gaming

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

So I've posted before and got some help. But I wanted to post again and get feed back before I got my parts so I can build this rig ASAP.
So I'm traveling a lot as a oil field geologist. I want something that I can game on heavily, watch movies, and also do work with my geological programs and 3d modeling. i have a cap of about $1800. I really want to be able to use duel monitor and switch from that to the huge 24-27 inch possibly 32inch TV with HDMI.


PC Case: BITFENIX PRODIGY M
MOTHERBOARD: ASUS P8Z77-M PRO LGA 1155
PSU: CORSAIR AX 760W
CPU: I5 3770K INTEL LGA 1155
GPS: RADEON HD 7970
SSD; SAMSUNG 840 PRO
RAM: MUSHKIN ENCHAND BLACKLINE 16 GB 2133
OS: MICROSOFT WINDOWS 7 ULTIMATE SP1 64-BIT
THERMAL COMPOUND: ARCTIC 5 HIGH DENSITY
SP FAN: CORSAIR SP120
PC FAN: CORSAIR AF120


COOLING WILL BE A CUSTOM LIQUID LOOP ILL MAKE. ALSO I WILL BE SLEVEING THE CORDS AND EVERYTHING ON THIS BUILD.

Please give me some feed back. I was looking at the AMD APU 6800K CPU and mother board …with a wireless PCI-E card too.

I would probably not go with custom loop if you're going to be traveling with that PC as much as you indicate. Overall it looks good, except I would probably go with an R9 290 instead of a 7970. The card is a monster for $400, and it's worth cutting a corner for.
