Building new Gaming PC with Nvidia GTX770.

Not sure what monitor to go with..
Any suggestions?

I was thinking this one: (for 3D)
BenQ XL2720T (3D 120Hz) 27" 1ms HDMI Full HD LED Gaming Monitor

Or these: (without 3D)
ASUS VX279Q Black 27" 5ms
SAMSUNG C570 S27C570H Glossy Black 27" 5ms
Dell S2740L Black 27" 7ms

More about : monitors suggestions

And the EVGA GTX 770 SC w/ ACX http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00CZIQXBA/ref=as_li_q... would power that monitor nicely.


That's the GPU i'm getting, but i don't want my monitor shipped from somewhere else. So i'm looking at monitors here in Australia. I think i'm going to go with BENQ xl2411T 24". It has 3d, 120 Hz, and good picture quality.
But i'm confused on how to connect it. Do i use DVI, HDMI or DIsplay port :S ?

For 120hz, you need a Dual Link DVI connection.

Ok thanks.
I'm now deciding on speakers.
I've narrowed it down to 2 I like.
Any recommendations?

WHARFEDALE MOVIESTAR DX-1 - SUB/SAT SPEAKER SYSTEM- WHITE

LOGITECH z906 - 5.1ch Surround Speakers

I really like the first one, it's a home theater system and its been reviewed very well. (wheres the best pc one i could find was z906 and was reviewed badly)


I honestly think at 27" you should go 1440p. Monitors at 27" 1080p looks stretched/pixelated and you should really take a look at this video which explains before buying

I thought about that, and besides with 27" you'd have to sit further back, so 1080p wouldn't look as good.
I've already decided on a 24" monitor.
It's a BENQ XL2411T (a 3D monitor) (I chose not to get IPS, because i read that colour quality difference is negligible)
You approve of it?

Also, what do you think of the speakers I mentioned?
Should I use Home Theater speakers with my pc?

Also, Someone told me maybe I should SLI with 2 gtx760 instead of 1 gtx770
Both below are EVGA GeForce SC ACX 2GB:
Price of 1 gtx770 is $500AUD. of 1 gtx760 is $329AUD. (so $660 for 2)
Which do you think I should go with?

IPS is better then TN/TFT panel and 2x 760s would be a WAY better value imo which would give you more then a gtx 780 performance at 1080p which is the route i would take and those 2 would smoke 1x 770 for sure. Its a bit overkill yes but you will be able to hang on to those cards for a long time and get into some of the more demanding games such as crysis 3/last light etc

I went with Logitech z906. The home theater system was a headache (had to get an amp etc)

But I have a new problem, my build is complete but missing a monitor again..

My $2000 build is as follows. I was almost finished, and was gonna go with
Monitor: $429 BenQ XL2411T (3D 144Hz) 24"
but then I changed my mind lol.

So instead of that monitor I now want a "2560 by 1440" one.

1. What I want to know is is my build below good enough?
(Do I have to get a 4GB GTX770 GPU? Which one is good out of Gigabyte OC, Gainward Phantom and Palit Jetstream?)
2. Is this a good monitor or should I look elsewhere? Monitor: $800 Dell U2713H 27"

SSD: $214 Samsung 2.5" 250GB 840 EVO Series
HDD: $140 Seagate Barracuda 3TB
CPU: $269 Intel Core i5 4670K Processor
GPU: $499 EVGA GeForce GTX 770 Superclocked ACX 2GB Video Card
RAM: $99 Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2x 4GB) 1600MHz DDR3 Low-Profile Black
Mobo: $189 ASRock Z87-EXTREME4
PSU: $229 Corsair 850W HX850
Cooling: $159 H110 Water Cooler
Case: $180 Cooler Master Storm Trooper

Keyboard: $185 Corsair Vengeance K95
Mouse: $65 Corsair Vengeance M65
Speakers: $280 LOGITECH Z906 5.1ch Surround Speakers
Surge Protector: $30 APC P5B-AZ

I like your build and i would recommend the 780 superclocked ACX and the resolution being at 1440p you would most def benefit from the extra VRAM and higher memory bandwidth pushing at that resolution. The gtx 770 really isnt ment for 1440p imo and heres the link below to the gpu

PLS>IPS and i mean you could go for a lower resolution for the tradeoff of 120MHZ but imo from the reviews and vids ive seen unless you really competitive in FPS it isnt a deal breaker honestly. Going up to 1440p to me seems more worth it if you got the specs to run it. Web surfing photoshop gaming, muti tasking the space you get on the screen is insane with the higher resolution

I've decided i'm going with 1440p and 4gb GPU\
I wonder are the korean one monitors reliable?
I've decided on http://www.mwave.com.au/product/sku-aa32343-asus_pb278q...

So am I all set now?
I just need to switch the 2gb graphics card for a 4gb one?
Or should I grab the Gigabyte gtx 780? which costs $230 more?
Are the rest of my parts ok with the 1440p monitor?

We can save you some money if your in the us you can get the same monitor from here

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

As far as the korean brand they pretty much hit and miss me personally i wouldnt get one even tho their cheaper but ive seen so many issues with them on youtube with the screen blanking out-flickering and its a hassle if you have a certain amount of dead pixels and im just not to set on getting one my self. For the gpu i think you was mentioning the 770 it will work but if you want the best gpu for 1440p getting a 780 then SLI would get you towards a gtx 690 which again will benefit you in the long run and saving you from having to upgrade so soon when the next wave of gpus come out. Im in the same process as you i have a 780 and getting a 1440p monitor as well n recently had the gtx 770 but i wanted something a bit more powerful and i dont have the mobo to sli 2x 770s at the moment so i went with the 780

I've deicided to go with the 770, I don't mind turning the settings down a bit
With the monitor, if you convert the USD to AUD it comes to be the same cost, so i'm lucky!
(But the GPU costs $54US more here than in the US :( 

Thanks for helps, i've purchased all my parts.
Next stage will be... overclocking! I hope I don't need to come back for help with that.
