The PSU is way overkill unless you paln on having GTX 970 4 way SLI. you dont need more then a 650 watts PSU for 2 of them.

The 840 evo should save you some dolars and would be almost as fast and there is a xfx pro 1050w at 122usd check that

This. I like the G2 750 watt personally.

And why 5930k? More cards down the road? Because you will still have enough lanes with the 5820k for 2 cards and you will save a decent amount of cash.

If you drop the PSU to 850 watts you still have more then enough room for a 3rd GTX 970 card if you want.
This is a brand new unit and since its $15 off and pretty good its worth a second look

If you cut down the power supply a bit, move "down" to the 5820k, and switch to an 840 evo maybe you could fit 2 980's in there instead? Just a thought.

1) Don't buy a 5930K. Either buy a 5960X or a 5820K because it's just not worth the extra money for the PCIe lanes over the 5820k. A 5820k can support 3 way SLI without any real performance degradation. You only need that 40 PCIe lanes if you do 3 way SLI and a M.2 SSD. The 5960x because it's different enough from the 5820k with the extra cores, it deserves a mention.

2) You could probably go with a slightly less PSU something like an AX860. Personally I don't have a problem with PSU overkill. It just means it runs cooler and the fan spins slower.

2) Don't bother getting a 850 Pro. Get a 1TB 840 EVO and put that money towards a 5960x or a 3rd GPU.


EDIT: Return the CPU then wink.gif

Here is my build.

http://pcpartpicker.com/p/b9NHnQ

I did a couple of things here.

First I will explain the hard drives.

I got rid of the 850 pro and went with a samsung m.2 drive for a boot drive and maybe a game or two. The M.2 drive is way faster than the 850 pro and should put a smile on your face.

For a big steam drive, I just went with an adata 512GB SSD. I have this drive myself, and it is an awesome drive for the price.

Lastly I added a 1TB hard drive for things like you downloads, music, and pictures folder.

I think this setup is going to maximize the performance of the system while at the same time bring down the cost.

Next up is the motherboard. This is pretty simple. The X99-a is just a stripped down deluxe. The deluxe simply has features that you do not need.

The last big change that I made was I swapped out the two GTX 970s for 980s. If you want to game at 4K now or in the future, then dual 980s are the way to go.

the last change I made was the case. This is just a personal recommendation. If you like the 760t, then feel free to use it.
