First build need help around $1500

Hi, i am building my first computer that will be mainly used for gaming, I want to be able to run new games at 1080p on high settings, I am worried about whether everything i have will fit and work together and if it is the best that i am getting with my money and is my power supply enough to power the machine?. My specs are:

Case: NZXT phantom 410 mid tower or CM storm enforcer, im still undecided. which one is better?

More about build 1500
  1. You can do much better build. More reliable and stable build like this:

  2. Thanks for the response but will a 550w power supply be enough? and isn't getting a core i5 better for a gaming build?

    Yes 550w is enough. i5 is cheaper. But new games come benefit more treads because new PS4 and xbox will come out with 8 core cpu. That is why now it is better buy a 4770k
  4. Here is what i recommend for that budget. Some changes are :

    PSU : Thermaltake PSU's are not something that are considered high quality and also it is just a 80 plus bronze PSU, that is why i replaced it with a XFX 80 Plus Gold 750W PSU which should be enough for even the highest end PC out there whether it be wattage or quality. It is good on both.

    CPU : There is no doubt that the i5 4670K is better than the i5 3570K is everything, and the single core performance is a beast on that CPU, so you should get that CPU instead.

    Motherboard : For the haswell CPU to find home i had to change the motherboard, the Z87-UD3H motherboard by Gigabyte is a very good motherboard, you probably won't need anything more than this. It also is very good for overclocking with its 8+2 phase VRM, so it is a definite buy

    Video Card : The 780 is a beast when compared to the 770, there is no doubt on that and that Graphics Card is a beast and the 2nd more powerful single GPU Graphics Card out there (only after the 1000 dollar Titan).

    SSD : Samsung 840 Series SSD's are better than the 830 series, so i found no reason not to include them.

    HDD : Does not matter, grab anything you like, they are all pretty much the same.

    So here is the 1500 dollar beast :

    So, are you really going with the Rosewell 550W PSU for such an expensive system or was that a mistake?

    If you included that PSU intentionally then i have nothing else to say other than this face ---> -_-
  6. I have opinion of this build.

    Or maybe just need to ask some things..
    What do OP benefit by taking gigabyte UD3H over the X-D3H?

    And whu SSD is TLC when you have MLC same price? How much wattage do that GTX 780 need?
    I mean do he really need 750w psu what gives over 900w to full load? And what resolution monitor you need to get benefit out of GTX 780?

    What is wrong with that PSU? Tell me? No it was not a mistake.
    Maybe that face do not know much. 450w is enough for 4670k/4770k and GTX 760 550w is really enough for 4670k /4770K + 770 or 780

    And that rosewill psu is GOLD version five year warranty, SLI + CF ready. And it will delivery over 600w to full load.
    And it have really good efficiency.

    Looking at your knowledge about brands I had this -

    Sure Rosewill's ( not Rosewell's ) low end PSU are bad , their higher end PSU's have some great qualities. Also about your other post , you are just another egoist guy thinking he is smart. You have to learn a lot more my friend , A LOT.
  9. But hey he is just a cpu expert. Maybe he just getting to understand hoe PSU works or how much new builds really needs :)

    Nope , anybody can earn those CPU expert badges , real easy , just get 5 best answers on threads with the CPU in tags.

    haha I did not know here is system like that :D
  12. It is just because a 550W PSU would not be able to handle any future upgrades at all. Also the reason why i selected the 750W PSU is because the 600W PSU's from good companies were a lot higher prices, that is why i went for the XFX PSU as it is :
    1. 80 Plus Gold Certified
    2. XFX is a good PSU brand
    3. Having extra wattage is not a bad thing at all
    4. Extra wattage means more future room for future upgrades
    5. I know that 750W is an overkill but since the other 650W 80 plus gold PSU's from good companies like Corsair, Seasonic, XFX are above 100 dollars that is why i went for the 750W PSU. It is just 89 dollars after all.

    It is cheaper and not much different. That's why.


    Quote:

    Future games definitely would take advantage of it. The advantage of it might be felt after 2-3 years when the 770 would not be powerful enough to run every game at ultra at smooth FPS, but at that time (after 2-3 years) the 780 still would be able to.

    Also it is better to have more power. It helps in the future.

    ______________________________

    And for the PSU i went for this PSU because it was the cheapest 600W+ PSU from a brand that i trust for a PSU. Also it is fully modular, so would help with the cable management. You can see the image below :

    Capstone is tier 2, so it's pretty good. You might have too little power, but it's a good PSU.
  14. Guys, do not just make fun of me. There is no denying that the build i selected is a beast. I do not understand why am i being mocked. My task was to recommend someone a good build, so i did. Also it is a powerful build. If i am wrong please do correct me.

    Am i being mocked for suggesting him a good PSU? or am i being mocked for suggesting him a powerful 780 over a 770 while still being in the budget? Guys please don't be rude towards me, my intention is to just help. And i just posted a build that i found good for that budget, so guys please do not mock me as i am also trying to help.

    I going to show you how much wattage build takes.
    video card takes this much


    and build takes when you play BF3 build was 3770k + GTX 770 SSD + 16GB ram and so on:

  17. Okay, so it has two more Sata 3 ports!! Now that looks like a big difference, doesn't it? (No.)

    Also i do not understand why are you showing me the power consumption of graphics card? They all could be easily handled by the 750W PSU easily, so why are you showing me there charts? i do not understand?

    Also, i have clearly said that the reason why i went for the 750W PSU is because i was not able to find any 600W PSU cheaper than that and also of good quality. Is it bad to have extra wattage? (No.)

    Tell me why he needs 900w power he build takes only bit over 200w when he plays a game like BF3
    If he do have 770 or 780 4770k is taking less power because it do have better voltage and power saving aplications.
    And this you not understand. He do not need more than 550w :D

    But he would not be able to SLI or upgrade much with a 550W PSU in the future and even if he would, then the PSU might be working at full load, that is why i was looking for a 650W PSU but i was not able to find any in that price range. Believe me having extra wattage is not a bad thing.

    Just answer this thing : Do you believe that having extra wattage is bad for computer? Do you??

    Did he say he is going to do that? No I do not think so. Then 650w is good. But you suggestion was a 900w psu.
    Now remember seasonic (xfx) gives over 900w and this you need only if you have 3 or 4 way SLI :D
    PSU optimal working is about 60 to 80 % load. And this is a fact. Is your 900w even near that? No.

    You should not insult someone, as you do not have even one badge yourself, it is not as easy as it looks like. I would not say anything more on this thing, i think the pic below is enough as a reply to what you said.

    I just think you need to grow up a bit :)

    It kind of is. If a computer isn't running at around 80%, it's not reaching maximum efficiency, resulting in slightly higher degradation in the PSU. I'm not saying you're wrong, I'm just pointing it out.

    900W? What are you talking about. Brother, i am damn sure that i never said or recommended anything like a 900W PSU. That would be like insanely stupid. You should go read all my posts in this thread again, i never ever talked about having a 900W PSU. You should read my posts again. I would not ever say anyone to go for a 900W PSU as you are right one would need a 900W PSU only if he is going for 3 or 4 way SLI, but that would again be stupid because in 3x or 4x SLI the Scaling would be very very bad.

    I do not know where you got that 900W thing from? I never ever mentioned like 900W PSU. I am not that stupid to not know how much wattage does a system needs. I am sure there is some confusion because i would stick to saying this that i never ever mentioned anything like a 900W PSU. From the starting i am recommending a 750W PSU.

    Just press "Ctrl+F" and type in "900" and none of the search are from my posts. You are the only one who is talking about the 900W PSU from the starting.

    God.. Finally the confusion is over. (which i never created)

    First I m not your brother. Second you did.
    goodle test out of that PSU or look here:
    http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/Seasonic-X-Series-750-W-Power-Supply-Review/1591/9
    giver 937w to 100% load. And that seasonic giver that much too.

  28. Sangeet , Your build is top notch , and would be a BEAST of a system.
  29. best for PSU at least. It gives total 950w

    But hope he has some stock of the electric company. No one else is not going to make any benefit out of that build :D

    See , I mocked ( wait , what ? I just uhhh , anyways ) your claim that the Rosewill Capstone is a bad choice for the PSU. Also your the one who gets angry much faster , I know you said that " I don't give a f*ck" Why you care now then ?
  31. The capstone series is actually pretty decent.

    It is good to hear that from the top ranked guy. Now i would not have to reply to the guys here who somehow find 950W in a 750W PSU now that i know that there is no problem with my build.
  33. Okay since Haswell CPU's aren't a good choice for overclocking ( due the fact of high temps , instability , etc ) an average i5-4670K is going to hit a rock bottom on above 4.3GHz ( luck if you get there ) So here's a Ivy Bridge CPU based build that will be a better choice for the longer run and can beat the i5-4670K any day , in every thing.

    Note that you get RAM with the motherboard , so get the motherboard ASAP , if you want this build.
    If you want to stick with Haswell , get this one ( not gonna OC well though )

    The choice is yours. Also if you don't OC anything , both rigs can have a SLI of the GTX 780 which will be awesome.
  34. Also here's a beastly build with the i5-3570K and a GTX 770 SLI -

    Before someone says , let me say it , the VRAM per GPU might be a issue , but that's the case if you have multiple monitors. If you have a single monitor below 27inch , the GTX 770SLI will just be good and beat the GTX 780 anyday. If you have multiple monitor setups , get one of those builds , mentioned above.

    But hey he is just a cpu expert. Maybe he just getting to understand hoe PSU works or how much new builds really needs :)

    Nope , anybody can earn those CPU expert badges , real easy , just get 5 best answers on threads with the CPU in tags.


    You should not insult someone, as you do not have even one badge yourself, it is not as easy as it looks like. I would not say anything more on this thing, i think the pic below is enough as a reply to what you said.



    Yeah , keep bragging about that. Leader board's are for bragging rights. Meanwhile I am building PC's and earning some from it. Also I am not insulting you. You said me to f**k off , thats what actually insulting is.

    If you are here to get to the leader boards and look at people's capacity by their best answers and ranks , you are insane. Here's my reaction -

    Again you blowed my head off. Most guys post for helping others and not best answer's and leader board ranks. Grow up , and help other truly and not for your own benefit.

  37. I never said anything like "f**k you". You can read all the posts again, i do not know where you got that from. I completely deny that since i never said that.

    Also i shared the leader boards pic because he pretended that i know nothing about hardware and made fun of my badges. One cannot be simply just ranked no. 10 on a forums like TomsHardware if he does not know about hardware.

    I am not doing these things for ranks, and my aim would still be to help the guys. And i still believe that the build i selected is very good and i still have no doubt in it.

    Also if the guy who started this thread finds my answer useful then it would help him. So you cannot just blame someone for like "You are doing this for ranking" . I believe you are the one who needs to grow up because you are making things in air.

    And i guess i would not reply anymore to you because i do not like to feed trolls. I had to post a build for him, so i did. Bye Bye!! .l.

    You remind me of kids playing games just for stats and not even enjoying it. Oh and here's the proof -


    The thread -
    http://www.tomshardware.com/answers/id-1736176/gaming-build-500.html

    And yeah , one can't be ranked , but you are showing off your skills the wrong way. Suggest something beastly in the first place ( sure your build was impressive ) so that others realise how good you are. Also I am not overexaggerating things , just telling my honest opinion , if you don't like it , don't read it and don't mess with me.
  39. That is not from this thread, talk about this thread, why are you bringing old things here? You were the one to start fighting in that thread too...

    A fight ? So speaking my opinion is fighting ? You are the only person soo crazy to say that. You post case photos on the build which isn't needed. Also I didn't start that fight. Read the thread properly. Also you were the only one to use abusive language. Me and envy14tpe were speaking politely and you were much harsher and rude. If I speak my honest opinion about you , I am sure you will be butthurt. And anyways , I don't speak anything abusive and offensive in real life and online unlike you. Wondering how you are in real life.

    If you have 30" 2560 *1440 or better monitor. Yes. If you do not have then no.

    juse21 said:

    IMHO yes , it is. The GTX 780 is a superb performer and should last longer than the GTX 770 ( I mean in terms of performance ) Also it is the way to go for SLI. I mean the GTX 770 isn't a good SLI performer for multiple monitors , 3D or even 30+ inches monitors having 2560x1440. The GTX 780 is a GPU meant for SLI. It can utilise VRAM much more effectively than the GK104. Also it is better off the GTX 780 in terms of OCing and has a better cooling.
  44. Maybe this helps:

    GTX 780 single / SLI: http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/NVIDIA/GeForce_GTX_780_SLI/5.html

    Look chart that what is your priority games and then make selection.

    The reference 770, 780, and Titan all use the same cooling/design. Just saying.

    I had heard somewhere that the GTX 780 has a better cooler ( I know the reference cooler is the same for these both ) Also I heard its fan is a bit tad faster than the GTX 770. Don't go for the looks only.
