Just got back on guys. Sorry I went to bed a little early. To reply to some of the comments: the only reason I chose a REALLY expensive 850 watt unit is that there is no question that the OP will be able to do SLI. The REAL question is: could he do tri-SLI? That is how good this unit is. Yes... I cheaped on the case a little, and overall it is a tad slower than other systems mentioned, but the upgradability is really awesome. Here's how I feel about upgrading:

As gamers, what piece of hardware do we upgrade the most?

A: the Graphics Card

And since we KNOW that we are going to upgrade our GPU, wouldn't it make sense to not spend a crap ton of the budget on the GPU for a first time build, and instead get a less- powerful card and quality components for the rest of the build that will definitely last us for the next couple years and never bottleneck any future GPU upgrades?

A: YES!

That's how I feel about part picking, because when I built my first system for $500 bucks, my cheap motherboard died, the PSU didn't have enough power for any better GPU's, I couldn't crossfire because my motherboard did not support it, and I had to upgrade my GPU because it only had 1 GB of vram. That is why I care so much about being able to upgrade a system easily.

I understand! And I totally agree smile.gif I just think that the power supply you picked isn't a good deal wink.gif

I was considering that one myself when I was looking to replace mine, and that one didn't have really great reviews. I mean it's decent, but I'm sure you can get something better at that price point.

And the case? That's a personal choice he can decide haha

I would suggest him going on YouTube and watching case reviews from hardware Canucks and others to see what to look for.


And I'm with you on the motherboard as well! You picked a solid one.

I'm a little skeptical of the PSU. wth.gif
and..Unless you're going for world records,This board would do everything you need it to: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813138380
The only thing it didn't do for me is run RAM @ 2800+ strap.

See I picked intel board with intel turbo booster tech with room ta grow (SLI). I need a PC like this.
I plan on picking up a 24" TOUCH screen at Best Buy (Cry) for like $400...eventually.
I chose windows 8 (Gah) because we are more or less forced to; and.. it will be smoother transition with a touch monitor.
(Unless I should wait for window 8.17?..)

I went from the Hero board to the ASUS Z87 Pro because I figure all the compatible software and hardware will help for multitasking.
Yeah I was tired when I made the thread title..lol

Wait.. so have you ordered the stuff yet? You are acting like you just purchased the mobo and cpu.

Believe it or not I'm still Looking.
Here is what I have thus far:

http://pcpartpicker.com/p/3dnko
I wasn't sure which gtx 770 to go with so I choose the 780.
I keep reading about how its not much better than the 680, except for price.

So Yeah..I'm kinda leaning towards buying the whole rig minus the GTX and saving for it for a few months.
Considering the i7 4770k has integrated graphics..

This is what I have so far:

http://pcpartpicker.com/p/3dq4r

And without the GPU:
http://pcpartpicker.com/p/3dnko

I guess I could always get one later?
I'm only getting the PRO because of the 5k capacitors. I don't want to fry it should I ever put in another card and O.C.
Which I know I will. Eventually.
I just want a computational powerhouse.
I figure pairing that board with that processor will give me exactly what Im looking for.
feel free to modify the setup.
Just dont add AMD.
No offense.
Ive seen some excellent rigs out there.
I just need an Intel for work and play.

As I said before..This board will do everything that $200 Asus board will do:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813138380

Both have x8 x8 for xfire/SLI

Biostar uses good components where it counts on their boards..sometimes better than the parts Asus uses.

Cooler: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835214023


Get Win7...


That PSU..eh..I think it's the one I've been using,and...That thing is anything but "golden" voltage regulation on the 5v rail thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif
drives keep dropping out n stuff..12v rail is good..5v is pretty bad..I switched back to my older PSU because of this...


http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817494017

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817371067

I'd suggest the bigger one..HCG is good quality.

Never skimp on the PSU..I don't even run 2 GPUs and i come close to my PSU's limits (750w) all the time.

Dude. I dont know if I can take your advice. That enermax cpu cooler you linked isnt even for a LGA1150 socket!

NEITHER is the PSU you put up. Crossfire support? Really? Did you even read my full post?
No offense, but..
Man dont go helping others if your going to ignore full posts; thats more harmful then helpful.

LGA 1155, and 1150 have the same mounting holes.


Theres also nothing wrong with the power supplies that he listed. the "crossfire support" just is marketing words.

theres also the chance that he has a lemon psu if his 5v rail is jacked.
