Ok so I know that this is slower than the system you have picked out but for 1080p this will destroy and overall it is just as fast (if not faster) especially when the GPU OC's itself with GPU Boost 2.0. I got you a big old SSD, a a nice GPU, the i7 and the best PSU on the market (Shilka uses it for crying outloud). This thing will handle SLI like a champ and will destroy anything you want at 1080p. Yes there were way to get a better GPU but you get so much speed with the SSD in this system it is so freaking fast. Here you go:

The closest way to get to "_uture proof" is by buying products that will last you a long time. Like a quality and sturdy case or a really good power supply.
Getting a motherboard that will support SLI later will be helpful in case you ever do go SLI down the road. Sure it's not the best, but when you're video card gets kind of old, its a great way to keep up with the performance. Just ask all the people who use SLI GTX 550s or 580s or what not. Best buy it now, or spend more down the road.

the OP listed a set budget of $1400, blowing money on custom water cooling doesnt not net you way more performance, some cases you can end up spending the price of your rig, if not more.
yeah there are kits from xspc, but spending $300 shipped, thats the price of an i7!
buying hardware that wont become super obsolete as soon as you buy it is the aim of being "future proof" and spending money on higher end components that give you the best bang for your buck is the best way to do that. And you may argue that yeah water cooling a gpu will make them last longer, sure thats valid. but theres also an inherent hassle involved with water cooling, draining the loop annually is just one of those things.

also you can ask the guys that are running sli 580s that are in a custom loop how much they spent total, and if you subtract the cost of water cooling it would be able to pay for another graphics card.
Cutom water cooling is for people who are enthusiasts, and who are willing to spend a lot of money just to have a cool rig that is different.



Sorry im not trying to personally attack you, but are you doing a custom loop yourself?

but i do agree on a quality case, because that is something that you can keep for years and years, upgrade after upgrade. And also having the OPTION of being able to run multi graphics cards and such, but right out of the gate, would it be the best idea to go way overkill just to power a single 1080p monitor that is probably 60hz? no way man.

I don't plan on going custom at the moment. It's not in the budget of life.
EDIT: This is a reply to ultraman. I gotta get some sleep. Good luck on the build Mirthless.

Also that PSU is a bit over priced:
$115 Rosewill capstone 750w 80+ Gold and modular, the 24 pin and 2x 8 pins are attached, i personally use this power supply and its awesome, super quiet and in my opinion the best psu you can buy under $120 that has all the features you need, and many times we go overboard with a power supply.

heres a video of a guy running a overclocked 680 (basically the samr thing as a 770) and measuring power he ends up only pulling a little over 300w out of the wall.

I agree smile.gif
now i understand what you meant on future proof.thumb.gif

its nice to get hardware, where you have the option of doing cool stuff with and having a case and a motherboard and all the stuff to be able to do that

Should have came here first.
NICE build!thumb.gif
But that SSD is too big.
And theres no SLI support (that I see anyways) maybe software SLI?

Too bad I couldn't combo some of that stuff out
New GAG doesn't give you too much for a price break when pairing anyways. $10, $15 maybe $20 at the most. So I guess it doesn't matter.

yeah what hes saying is a single gtx 770 will be awesome for a single monitor 1080p setups, you wouldnt need to sli them, but if you did at higher resolutions, like on a korean 1440p monitor this card scales very nicely when you sli them smile.gif

oh 1080p=1920x1080
