as for timing... I have no clue what to do there.

Gotcha, good advice will look for that. Thanks Zemco for all the advice.

Okay so here's where I'm at everyone. PLEASE feel free to let me know if this is a good build with the deals that are left out there or if you would suggest anything else!!!!


CPU Intel Core i7-4770K 3.5GHz Quad-Core $289.99
CPU Cooler Corsair H50 57.0 CFM Liquid $59.99
Motherboard MSI Z87 MPOWER ATX LGA1150 $149.99
Memory G.Skill Ripjaws X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3-1600 $109.99
Storage Samsung 840 EVO 120GB 2.5" SSD $89.99
Video Card Asus GeForce GTX 670 2GB $199.99
Case Antec Eleven Hundred ATX Full Tower $89.99
Power Supply Thermaltake Tough Power TP-750P ATX12V / EPS12V $69.99
Optical Drive Samsung SH-224DB/BEBE DVD/CD Writer $14.99
Operating System Microsoft Windows 8.1 Pro - OEM (64-bit) $119.99


Remaining concerns
1.) Ram - 8GB sticks preferred. This is what I was going to get but they just sold out @&%@(&*@$T*&
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231568

Only other ram I see that is comparable that is not crazy expensive is the following. . .
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233296&nm_mc=EMC-IGNEFL112513&cm_mmc=EMC-IGNEFL112513-_-EMC-112513-Index-_-DesktopMemory-_-20233296-L08A

Any thoughts on better deals for 8gb sticks?


2.) Mobo, I still don't have a clue what in the world I actually need aside from getting something blindly because it seems like a good deal and because it supports an i5 or i7. That one deal that Zemco quoted for a Gigabyte $69.99 mobo looked killer! But I can't find it anywhere.


3.) I heard you guys about the PSU. Any thoughts on a good case that will fit everything including the GPU with no problems? I don't need it to look space age and cook my poptarts for me.

I personally love the corsair 750D. Beautiful professional case and on sale for $110. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811139024&nm_mc=AFC-C8Junction&cm_mmc=AFC-C8Junction-_-na-_-na-_-na&cm_sp=&AID=10446076&PID=3938566&SID=

I would wait on ram. You should be able to get it cheaper than $150

I see a lot more ram on Newegg and Tigerdirect for $115-and up. I just don't know which ones would be good aside from looking for the latency 9 and 1.5v as you stated. LoL I'm trying to look more in depth but Newegg is locked up for me right now. hehe

What about these two options for Ram?

http://www.amazon.com/Crucial-Ballistix-PC3-12800-240-Pin-BLS2CP8G3D1609DS1S00/dp/B006YG9EEW/ref=sr_1_3?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1385705145&sr=1-3

Or

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820148740


I think I'd be pretty set if I could get Ram and also the mobo / cpu figured out.

CPU - will probably go with the i7 4770K.

But don't know what mobo would be good to choose. There's so many out there that I'm seeing on Newegg, TigerDirect, etc, that they are all starting to blend together for me.

Okay, so, here's the final build I settled on. Do you think it will be a beast computer or just okay? Will I have any trouble running anything. I am thinking it should handle everything I can possibly throw at it but am I wrong? You guys definitely seem to know better than me. hehe I was tempted to put on one more of the same GPU's in an SLI config which would have been awesome but I had already spent WAY too much anyway getting the extra 16 GB's of RAM and extra hybrid SSD 2TB drive. I peed a little when I tallied it all up. -=/ Hopefully I'll be set for 5-10 years? (I don't upgrade often)

1.) Will running all 32 GB's of RAM be safe at all? This is where I don't know ANYTHING about stressing out the hardware too much. Optimally I hear people saying they Overclock the 4770k to 4.4ghz with no problems at all. . . but if I OC it to 4.4 while running 32 GB's of ram, is that safe?

2.) If I OC to 4.4ghz, run 32 GB's of RAM AND CHOOSE to run the ram at 2400 speed through BIOS as was suggested to me is that safe? Or should I maybe OC it to 4.4 and only up the ram to 2400 for short sessions when needed for gaming? Is it safe to OC the 4770k at 4.4 with the CPU cooler I have?

3.) Will the ram that I got run at 1600Mhz by default?

4.) Anything else I'm not thinking of?!? Anything I can try when I get my pretty goodies?

Thanks again for the hookup for Win 8.1. That was great man. I'm gonna go post this on that thread I started as well so the others who had chimed in can see as well. Peace out, Justin.

I really dont know about that PSU sure its cheap but its also old and totally without reviews

its FSP that has made it so i think it might be a rebranded FSP Aurum

If it is an FSP Aurum then its not bad

Gotcha. I went with that one because that money for the extra PSU was put into helping purchase the extra 16gb of ram. I think I'll start saving to get that PSU during Christmas time if they have any deals to bring it down during that time. It got great reviews on all the sites I looked on but other than that though I really am just going on what I see. The PSU was one of the decisions I made nervously. -=/ Should the PC be able to handle a lot though? I haven't gotten anyone's opinion on it yet who really knows their stuff. . . and I don't pretend to. wink.gif

If it is an FSP Aurum which i am not 100% sure on then you dont need to buy a new PSU later
