Need Help On first Build

I need to build a system that will allow video rendering and picture edits with a little gaming on down the line and some 3d work. I believe the intel I-7 4770k would be the preferred cpu, i was also looking at the asus maximus iv hero for the motherboard with rip jaws xf3-2133c9d-16gxh but i have no clue on a psu or case. Would like any thoughts on my current choices as well as any input for the psu and case. Thanks

  1. what's ur budget?
  2. lower the better but looking to use no more that $ 1700 USD for the entire build.
  3. Best answer
  4. I did make it bit other way.
    If you are not planning SLI in future then drop the PSU to 550w

    I know nothing about water cooled would you have another suggestion for possibly air cooled even if it puts the price just slightly over?
  6. if u really wanna go for air cooling go with the Hyper 212 EVO

    Sorry for my ignorance But I do not plan on any major OC so would water cooled really be a better option? Also I do like the build that you have suggested, I'm just trying to learn.
  8. Well lets put things other way.. Look this:
    PCPartPicker part list: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/1hVHg
    And now you get the 750w psu if plan is SLI two video cards in future.
    This Fractal comes with lots or versions:
    White with window: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/fractal-design-case-fdcadefr4whw
    With out window: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/fractal-design-case-fdcadefr4wh
    Black with window: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/fractal-design-case-fdcadefr4blw
    Really good silent case.
    And here is 750w PSU ir you need so much power.

    If mobo needs to black and red color then maybe that asus or this gigabyte are good ones:

    And you can get that phantex cpu cooler in red version too:)

    And if you like red leds in a case then maybe this is case for you:

    I personally just prefer AMDs so I use AMDs in all my builds:http://pcpartpicker.com/p/1hVJJ
  10. just get the Hyper 212 EVO, its good enough for mild ocerclocks
  11. I like more this cooler.

    Really good and silent cooler. And can use high memory with this cooler :)
