I'm not seeing the 3930k for your streaming / gaming .... I do the Maximus Formula and 4770k

A $30 Cooler on a $500+ cpu ????? Get a Phanteks
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Twin 770s will toast that 780 .... and that 780 is very limited in OC potential. Great cooler but chinsy reference VRM and PCB limits OC abilty

RAM - $140 - (2 x 8GB) Muskin CAS 9 DDR3-1866 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

HAF 932 was long on my fav list .... but it's a bit long in the tooth.
Level 10 GT, STorm Stryker, Corsair 500R .... and my new fav .... Phanteks Enthoo woiuld be better choices IMO

New Build
Intel Core i7-4770K - $339.99
Phanteks CPU Cooler - $79.99
ASUS Maximus VI Formula Motherboard - $329.99
Gigabyte Windforce GTX 770 w/ 4GB Vram - $459.99 (I'll probably get a second one later)
16GB G.Skill Ripjaw X Series 1866 Mhz RAM - $114.99
128GB Samsung Pro Series SSD - $139.99
1TB Western Digital Blue HDD - $64.99
Cooler Master HAF 932 Advanced Full Tower Case - $159.99
Corsair Professional Series HX750W PSU - $129.99
Subtotal - $1,819.91
I want to stream Skyrim, Minecraft, Euro Truck Simulator 2, Terraria, and a few others. I'll probably just play Crysis 3, Farcry 3, Metro, etc. alone since they aren't that popular on Twitch. It'll be single monitor 1920x1080, might upgrade to 2560x1440 about a month after I get this.

Id only invest in the 4GB GFX if ya going with 2560 res or above.

Can't support the Blue

That RAM is 40mm hi .... IIRC, those Mushkins are 38 ... both will fit

750 watts is small for twin 770s w/ overclocking

http://www.guru3d.com/articles_pages/msi_geforce_gtx_77...

Quote:
Here is Guru3D's power supply recommendation:

GeForce GTX 770 - On your average system the card requires you to have a 550 Watt power supply unit.
GeForce GTX 770 2-way SLI - On your average system the cards require you to have a 750 Watt power supply unit as minimum.
GeForce GTX 770 3-way SLI - On your average system the cards require you to have a 1000 Watt power supply unit as minimum.

If you are going to overclock your GPU or processor, then we do recommend you purchase something with some more stamina.


$390 for ya case / PSU combo
$210 for this one .... bigger PSU, better case IMO
