Building a new computer but I need your help

Hi all!

I have picked some parts to my new built and because this is my first time I'm not sure are these parts compatible with each others.

Case: Cooler Master HAF-X Gaming Full Tower Case
CPU: Intel Haswell i7-4770K, LGA1150, 3.5GHz, 8MB
Motherboard: Asus Maximus VI Formula, LGA1150, Intel Z87, DDR3, ATX
Memory: G.Skill KIT (2x8GB) 16GSR Sniper
Video Card: PNY NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780
Power Supply Upgrade: ?
Hard Drive: Sandisk 256GB SSD, 2.5"
Data Hard Drive: Western Digital 1TB Westerm Digital VelociRaptor
Optical drive: DVW BluRay LiteOn BD-ROM/DVD-Writer 12x black bulk


Which wattage for PSU?

I might upgrade that one GPU to 2-way SLI but I will start with just one for now and when I have 2 graphic cards I will need more from PSU, so is it possible to get PSU enough to run 2 GPUs but for now use it for just one?

I have found these parts on stock in my country (4 different sites) and I'm ready to pay what they cost but if possible to get same (or better) performance motherboard and CPU with less money go ahead and suggest.

Thank you in advantage!

  1. whats ur budget????
  2. an 800-850W PSU should do the trick. but make sure they are from well known brand's like antec corsair seasonic OCZ xfx ,silverstone etc.

    Thanks for the answer

    Ok.. so 800-850W would handle 2-way sli in th future.. but is it too much for one gtx 780? Is there any problems if there is too high wattage?
  5. @Saku Tuppurainen no there won't be any problems.
  6. Hi, here's your entire specs in PC part picker http://pcpartpicker.com/p/1qJLH there all definitely compatible. I've picked out a 850 watt psu that will definitely be enough power for sli in the future and I've added a CPU cooler because i assumed you bought the k version so you were going to overclock it. just click the pc part picker link to see the suggested parts I've picked and alter them how you like, PC part picker tells you if your parts aren't compatible so feel free to mess about.
    Overall build will be great for running the latest games on ultra without hesitation.
    Hope i helped if you have any problems feel free to reply to this post.

  8. oh and also about the build, i think you should replace that 10000RPM raptor, instead get a bigger SSD with a cheap 1TB one.

    how about this???


    Thank you very much

    I changed the motherboard, added the CPU cooler and I found these 2 PSU (about a half of that 1050W PSU in my country) but which would be better of these 850W PSUs

    XFX 850W 80+ BRONZE CERTIFIED WIRE
    or
    CORSAIR PSU TX V2 850W 14CM ATX2.31 80+ Bronze

    Also should I use more for SSD because I have Buffalo 1,5 TB external storage and leave Data hard drive empty for this time?
  11. get a xfx psu as it is a tier 1 psu


    get a better ssd and rule out the hdd and use the external storage
  12. dont forget to close the post
