Alright, I plan on buying this in the next few days, been planning it for awhile but just want to get some more experienced eyes to take a double look at it before I do.

This will be my first build. I meant to do one 5-6 years ago but my laptop died at the wrong time and I ended up having to buy a prebuild since I wasn't able to wait to order and build one. I have since replaced the prebuilts PSU,Ram and GPU but even that was 4ish year ago. Long story short its been a long time since I have been able to play any game at high/ultra and my wife uses photoshop/light room and has been noticing that color changes can take 1-2 seconds to register on my current system.

I went with a IPS screen due to color for my wives PS/LR program . Her camera and lens cost more then this entire build will cost. Also the games I tend to play are more RPGs then shooters.


Went with Pro over Evo ssd since it will probably be another 5-6+ years before I even think about a new one .
Went with a 850 PSU over a 650 to keep the option of doing SLI in the future open.

Minor OCing so stayed with a Hyper 212 evo instead of doing something higher end.

Don't buy the thermal paste. Your CPU cooler already comes with thermal paste. Also you might want to get a better CPU cooler. (if you're overclocking)

I was thinking of the upgrading the CPU cooler but was on the fence on the issue. Currently looking at the Noctua D15. Its large but I think I should be able to use it with minimum issue. The Strykerr has a 186 max CPU cooler height. The D15 at stock is 165mm. It looks like I would have to raise the outside most fan 10+mm to clear the left red ram slot with ram in it.. At stock the fan is 32 mm from the MB and my ram is 42mm tall.

You are aware that they have a cooler that is almost as good and much smaller right?
The Noctua NH-U14S wont block your RAM at all as its not wide enough.

Dont get that monitor for PS/LR work. I have the Asus PG279Q which uses the same panel. They have very poor color and brightness homogeneity. Look at something like the Eizo CS270 for photo work or your wife will be mad.gif

Make sure you calibrate your monitor colors using color profiles and monitor settings when you first use the monitor.

He should buy a calibration tool, if he is spending that much on a system and his wife wants to do (semi)professional colour work he needs one.

I would really get a more modern case, anything from something like a define R5, Corsair 450D, C70 (if you dig the aesthetics), enthoo pro, mastercase 5 would all be easier to build in and have a better feature set. (Unless of course you actually need all of those 5.25" bays)

Maybe a NZXT H440 case?
