judge my $3K build

post #1 of 76
Thread Starter 
It's $3K Canadian (S&H and taxes included).

NZXT H440
Asus Z87-A
Kingston Predator DDR3-2666 8GB
Corsair K70 brown
Logitech G602
Asus PA248Q
Corsair RM650
Asus GTX 780 DCU
Intel 4770K
Corsair H110
Windows 8.1
Corsair Vengeance 2100
Samsung 840 Pro 256GB

Buying from NCIX.

Judge.

PS. Since the RAM uses more than 1.5V, will it work at its normal speed on my mobo?

EDIT: Had forgotten to add SSD.

It should, but why the expensive RAM, when 8GB of 2400 is like $75?

Cause NCIX's 2400 RAM is more expensive than the $125 or so Kingston one I selected. Take a look:

Monitor is not very good for the money. At all. That ram is overpriced and ridiculous and not needed. Besides that, lookin good

Edit: I actually can't find the ram you listed. Only 204 pin Kingston predator ram so I take back my comment. But much better monitor options available.

http://products.ncix.com/detail/kingston-predator-series-8gb-2x4gb-8d-78076.htm <-- RAM

As for the monitor, why isn't it good? I'm getting it for like $330. Give me a better one out of these: http://products.ncix.com/category/lcd-monitors-23-24-inches-ed-1003-220.htm
Keep in mind I would like to have a good quality screen (i.e., IPS/VA).

I believe that is 204 pin ram. Not compatible with any new motherboard/CPU. You need 240pin ram. So. Try to find other ram. I would get ripjaws or something. Cas latency below 9 and speed above 1866. That's kind of a sweet spot. 240 pin. Not 204 pin.

And I would get 2 monitors for 300-350 bucks which is what you were gonna spend anyway.

I have 2 comparable lg monitors like this one and I am very happy. I'm not an expert or anything but had better colors than an old viewsonic monitor I had.

It's 240.

As for the double LCD idea, I'm def not doing that. Never liked more than one screen.

Ok. My bad about the ram. I just glanced at it and it looked like 204

And it doesn't look like saving money is an issue for you. I would still get that lg one. Or even bump up to 120hz/1440p/1600p for one screen. But monitors are widely up to opinion.

Lookin good man:p

I don't doubt the power of LG. My current monitor is an LG (with a VA panel...I think), and it looks great. I wouldn't regret goin with Asus/LG/Samsung or w/e. I just wanna get a good monitor since I'll be staring at that thing for years.

Forgot BenQ. I know they make some good stuff as well.
