3,800$ High End gaming and editing PC, tell me what you think?

The PC (Hardware) -
Total cost = 3,800

I do have a question though.....Should I be worried about parts getting hot?

Hello everyone, thanks to everyone who has helped me with all my questions about hardware, recommending me parts and just being a big help in general. Thanks

PS. I finally agreed on these parts because I wanted to be able to have a power computer that will easily be able to run the new releases on max settings with still great FPS. I also needed a good CPU and RAM for video editing and being able to keep high frames while recording the gameplay.

Tell me what you think? (I won't be buying all of this right away because I still need to save up all the money). Thanks a lot everyone! :)

    Should I be worried about heat? I only have the case fans and CPU cooler? Thanks
  3. Is this a repost ? feels like I answered this an hour ago or so ....

    1. The 3930k doesn't game as well as Haswell ....lotta wasted cash for less performance.

    2. The 900D is case for someone using 3-4 water cooling radiators....wasted w/ the useless H100i. used real WC below with < 20dba noise (H100 is 38 dba advertised / as high as 60 on youtube)

    Case - $250 - Phanteks Enthoo
    PSU - $240 - Seasonic X-1250

    MoBo - $300 - Asus Maximus VI Formula
    CPU - $330 - Intel Core i7-4770k

    RAM - $140 - (2 x 8GB) Muskin CAS 9 DDR3-1866

    Cooler - $130 - CM Eisberg Presige 240L
    TIM - $7 - Shin Etsu

    GFX - $780 - EVGA WC GeForce GTX 780 3GB
    GFX - $780 - EVGA WC GeForce GTX 780 3GBB

    SSD - $213 - Samsung 840 Pro 128GB from orig build
    HD - $135 Seagate 7200.14 from orig build
    OS - $125.00 - Win 7-64 pro from orig build

    DVD Writer - $58 - Asus Blue Ray Player

    That's only $3488 BTW and faster .....

    And it doesnt include the three Asus 144 Hz monitors and .... I didnt spec out the WC loop for the water cooled GFX cards as that's another thread :)
  4. yup, he's right ^

    ivy bridge e will be coming out soon as well and it doesnt look like it will be a drastic improvement over sandy bridge e, if you are set on the 3930k and arent buying soon, might be worth it to wait for the 4930k.

    i would say stick with the 256 gb ssd for video editing, can never have enough cache or ssd space for cs6 :)

    agree with maximus VI or even sabretooth.

    32gb of 2133 sounds like a hell of a deal, depending on your program you use, might be worth it..
  5. Thanks guys, where should I buy the water cooling tube and anything else I will need for the water cooling?
