(RIG Completed for $2065. Thank you guys) - Page 2

post #11 of 18
My advice would be an ATX board, there is a larger upgrade path if you ever do have to crossfire or sli. If you will not be immediately gaming you could wait for a new gpu to come out. The 980 ti has been looking very good, Titan x owners are a bit mad, I would get a cheap gpu for now then throw in a new high end gpu when you do upgrade for 4k. 750 watts will be acceptable for a gpu with maxwell architecture.

Yeah best is not to be so cheap I guess.

I will probably just buy a 970 right now and throw in a new High end GPU in 2 years when I switch to 4k. The 970 seems like it will be more than enough for 1080p gaming as I do not expect every game to run at ULTRA settings. I will just let Geforce Experience decide for me.

How are the EVGA SuperNOVA GPUs? I am thinking of grabbing the 850W just to be safe in case future GPUs require more power.

In my opinion the 970 is a rip, now might be a good time to check out an AMD card, as much as you love Nvidia for a card that will end up as a backup experimenting with AMD might be a good idea as you can save quite a bit of cash if you end up liking amd, you can get a 290x for 280 and in my opinion it performs better/on par than a 970 and they have more vram, which is beneficial to games like gta v.
As for EVGA psu's I think they are all pretty good, there are some shortcomings for lower models but 850 watts is when they use higher end components, so go with it.

I will definitely think about AMD. I will most probably still lean towards Nvidia but you never know.

Cool about EVGA PSU. I think I decided to go with the 750W version as 850W is way too much for me. And if I go Nvidia SLI, it seems 750w will still hold.


So guys I purchased myself a 120gb SSD, and bought an i5 4690k for the time being. 4690k costs around $300 here in Turkey but I bought it for $120 from USA so I am happy about it.

My honest opinion on GPU's is to wait with the build a bit. Firstly the news about 980Ti and/or the new AMD cards (Whenever those come out, July is heavily speculated).

EDIT: The 980Ti would be a bit more future proof (I hate using this wording..) than the 980 thanks to having more VRAM and I wouldn't really touch the AMD 2xx series anymore. Maybe, just maybe the 290x 8GB version.

I will collect the components of my upcoming PC by the end of May (having a 2 weeks vacation on may).. I will however will leave the GPU as my last purchase. I want to build the other parts of the PC by than however.

I will wait on the 980ti but I doubt I will get it for 1080p 60fps gaming. I will just see if it has an impact on the GPU prices a bit. If 980 price drops than I might also lean towards it too.

Wow almost 2 months and I cant believe I did not purchase my rig yet.

This friday I am though.

Here is my final build.

CPU : i7 4790k (bought it)
GPU : MSI GTX 970 ME100
Case : Corsair 400r
MOBO : Asus Z-97 K (not gonna go with SLI so a non SLI MOBO will save me some money)
Ram : Crucial 8GB 1600mhz
PSU : Evga SuperNova G2 750W
SSD : 120gb OCZ (bought it)
HDD : 1TB 7200RPM WD
Mouse : Logitech G502
Keyboard : Logitech G105

Any last second tips?

again this will be a 1080p 60hz build.

I tasted 1440p before. It was great but I will go 4K only after this point. When they become more affordable
Also I did game on 120hz and it was great too but I am very happy with 60fps gaming.

RAM : Crucial 8gb DDR3 1600MHZ = $65
HDD : WD 1tB 7200RPM = $70
SSD : Kingston SSDnon 120GB = $70
