Hey There, I am going to be building a rig for my course that i am undertaking right now and i will need a good mavhine to do so.
The course i am doing right now is Architecture and i will be using various CAD softwares and also be using various rendering softwares and be using alot of Photoshop too.
I have been looking into various of items and also looked at various reviews.
Case: Cooler Master Storm trooper
CPU: Intel Core i7 4770K
GPU: ASUS GTX 770 2GB
(i could get a PALIT JETSTREAM GTX 770 4GB for a bit more if that would help my rendering to quicken up faster or for having a maximum of 3 screens attached in the future. i am planning on using one/2 screens at the moment)
RAM: now the tricky part, i dont know what i should go for, i really like the corsair vengeance pro series and i would go for 16GB but i dont know whether to go for a 1600Mhz or a 2166MHz or a 2400Mhz.. I am absoluetely clueless on whether it will make a major difference or not?
Motherboard: MSI Z87-GD65-GAMING ATX Motherboard
Cooling: H100i if it decides to fit straight into the case or a H80i to cool down the processor.
PSU: Corsair HX850.. now will this one be enough for anything i will put into the mashine or should i invest into a lower PSU? this is the only one i have heard which would be stable to run at literally anything?
i will also be running a Crucial M4 SSD in this machine.
thanks for the quick reply
well basically i have chosen the motherboard as it has really performed well for overclocking as it can automatically address overclocking with one button, i am not very experienced with overclocking and wont be able to spend time to check what temperatues my cpu will be working on. this is why i thought the MSI Z87-GD65-GAMING ATX Motherboard would be best for my RIG.
also i can see you have mentioned that i should go for the 2133** Ram option. will it make a significant difference between the 1600 and the 2400? as its not much of a price difference in the UK. £100 for the 1600 - £125 for the 2133 and £150 mark for the 2400. question is, would i really need to go all the way out or will there be much of a difference between the 1600 and the 2133Mhz. i am thinking of buying 2x 8GB sticks so that future upgrades are possible.
