Hi, I am new to the PC gaming. I am wanting to build myself a Gaming PC that will last me a while and is spectacular quality. I have a budget of 2000 to 3000 max and I want it to including everything like monitors, headphones, keyboard etc etc and I was hoping someone could give me the basics of gaming PCs, like overclocking, how many monitors I should have, and what components I should put into my PC like video card, CPU, Motherboard etc etc If someone could help me it would be much appreciated. Note I live In Australia.

if you spend more than 2000 on this, you are wasting your time and money for a gaming rig

Do you think something like this would do the job?

replace the 780s with 770s to free up budget for the monitors and OS

How much would I save if I used 770s and would I be reducing the graphics quality significantly.

first of all have you tried out multi-monitor gaming? second, does it actually improve your gaming results. 3rd, do you have enough desk space to even house 3 monitors,and 4, are you going to blow 600 dollars on monitors alone?

dont even start thinking about multi monitors with 770s. the 2gb edition doesnt have enough vram and the 4gb edition is a waste of time when the GPU itself cant use the vram. if you want multi-monitor, you better be going with 780s

Yes i have plenty of desk space, no I havent tried multiple moniters and I am prepared to spend 600 I will buy one moniter at a time and save up.

no. id suggest you go find a triple monitor setup, try it out, and then decide if you want a rig that is ready for that. you waste money that way as you end up buying something that you dont need

however u could save 400$ going for 77os 4GB in SLI instead of 780s
July 24, 2013 6:04:39 AM

Would the 770s make the graphics quality drop significlty.

no they won't, 770s are just about 15% weaker that 780s however remember get 4GB as u will require that much memory for the SLI to be effective

the extra vram will not help when your GPUs arent powerful enough. you can run them in SLI however much you want but in the end its going to perform around the same as a 770 2gb SLI

SLi does not suddenly make your GPU that isnt powerful enough to drive the vram, drive that extra vram.

i agree to that, but the 2 770s together are powerful enough to make use of the shared 4GB

thats not how it works. SLI works by sharing the workload between 2 GPUs. adding more vram does not help either one of the GPUs perform better because they are still limited from themselves.
