Finalized build, any last minute suggestions? Ready to start buying!

post #1 of 25

Hello all,

I am going to start buying my computer parts bit by bit. Right now I have the HDD, Optical Drive, and Solid State Drive.
This is what I am planning to build:

Now, I am planning on buying each part separately, so which order should I buy the parts?
I know it would be best to buy them all at one time, but I simply cannot fund that. Also, any last minute suggestions?
Currently, I only have $450 pocket change, so the graphics card is going to be the last item I buy. My budget is pretty much set as what I have picked out. Also, how would this do in BF4@1600x900 Ultra? I am also panning on getting a 1920x1200 monitor soon, so that is why I chose that GPU.

Thanks..

All the best,

-Kai

I may overclock in the future, but when I do I am planning on watercooling.
How may I contact Shilka?

Thanks for the input,

type Shilka into the search bar and a red Neo zeon picture should pop up and message with your build and ask if the power supply is good enough if not what would you suggest. personally i have never built a system with a power supply below 1kw so i'm not sure on anything like that!

List looks good.

550W will be more than enough for your system as long as you stay within stock voltage. If you plan on overvolting your 780 and flashing bios especially up to 1.31v, i suggest getting a 650W PSU with good efficiency, as your "maximum wattage".

Thanks guys,

I have sent Shilka message, but he currently offline. So, other than the PSU dilemma, what else could use tweaking? I don't want to regret buying these parts. Is there any other parts I should buy? Like thermal paste and that kind of stuff.

All the best,

Looks good. Personally id go with a 650 or 750 watt pus for the headroom. Also if its not too much of a stretch id recommend a Blue ray writer, as the price difference isn't that big and you never know if you may want the ability. If you wasn't to save a little bit of money you could go 2x 4GB sticks and upgrade later if need. I have 16GB and id be surprised if I ever get close to using 8GB, Then again when I bought my RAM it was half the cost it is now. I also occasionally run a VM so the extra RAM worked out.

You should be able to play just about anything at 1080p with highest or close to with the 780.

Thanks guys,

So what I am getting from this is that I need to upgrade my power supply, and the 16GB RAM is because I render, run VMs, and am trying to give myself some room for the future. I guess it couldn't hurt to get a BD Writer..

Kind Regards,

Only advice I would give with the way you are going to be buying the parts is not to marry to any one part always be open when you are ready to buy and look for deals because sometimes you can find better deals or better products for the same price!!

Got the BD Writer and a highly rated PSU.
