About to pull trigger on $2000 build, need last advice - Page 3

I like your two builds although I would also consider the mixing the AMD build with the GTX 780 TI just because I love the look and design of that video card smile.gif

To me it just cooler design kind of screams quality while the ATI ones, well..

The Intel is obviously faster, but the AMD has is charm and its worth considering if you like to tinker.

Don't let anyone discourage you on that PSU - rosewill and definitely not for a cosair.

I've tried to cram hack too much stuff in my case and I ordered a rosewill capstone 750 and and up having to use a cosair 750 because its physically smaller....

Just by looking at the two side by side, the rosewill is obviously much better quality.

Stinks I can't fit it in the case because its a few cm too big. Saving it for my next build because I got it for so cheap.
That being said, the cosair is running just fine with 2 GTX 760s and AMD 8320.

5. I need a motherboard with a wireless adapter or a wireless adapter somewhere in the build due to internet issues.

 

What does #3 mean here? Are you saying that an 850W or a 1000W PSU will future-proof your build? Against what?

 

Again, will you be increasing the voltage of your video card(s)? If not, then there's no good reason to get such overkill in a PSU.

Some guy suggested a 750 PSU with a 780 build. That would really limit my choices if I ever wanted to add and extra GPU or two.

Also, Yes, I do plan on increasing voltage.

Oh, awesome (I'm glad you'll be increasing their voltage for extra overclocking). I guess that's all I wanted. hehe You're all set, as far as this is concerned! So yeah, stick with these 'bigger' PSUs to help cover the extra power draw from increasing the voltage!

Just about any GPU can get at 1440p, but I'm looking to stay above 120fps on Ultra in BF4. The monitor is 120hz.

290 Clocks will run at about 1300/1650-1700... I hope.
My 780 clocks don't really have a goal yet.
4.7ghz With the 4770k.

Delid?

Sweet case! Im sure this build is gonna be epic!
I don't know BF4 FPS specs on card setups wink.gif I doubt that any of the setups can maintain a 120 with no drops smile.gif fps vs hz. ey? have you read about G-Sync? tongue.gif
Nvidia Advertises that it will sync the monitors refresh rate with the GPUs outgoing FPS.. that is Nvidia restricted tech and requires special modified monitor.(DYI kits is/will be available.)
However, Iw heard that AMD is on coming with a software based alternative (no monitor modifications required)

Anyways.. If you are going for setup nr 1. and you have the space..if you can find the cash or something else to go cheaper on.. you should get an extra 240mm of rad to keep the system cool and hopefully quiet smile.gif
and best of luck on the 4.7 ^^ what was your thoughts towards delidding? Im unable to get 4.6 stable on 1.4 vcore.. Guess I didnt get the luckiest chip :/
