Need feedback on the PC I'm going to build (Going for quiet high end gaming and editing PC)

Hello everyone, I am currently saving up money for a car and a custom built gaming and editing PC for when I go to college. I am aware this is overkill, I want it to be. (The large amount of RAM and powerful CPU will help me be able to use Sony Vegas fast and effectively, as well as be able to record while I play and still sustain very high FPS on Max settings.)

I will be using this PC for my YouTube channel (playing and recording my gameplay while also doing post and live commentaries.)
I won't be able to buy a high end custom water cooling set up for quite a while considering all the money thats going into this, and with the fact that I am still saving up for my car.


My two concerns about the PC parts I am about to buy is this....

1. My PC will be making too much noise (I don't want my viewers to hear my PC making noise, I am striving for my mic quality to be as best as possible)

2. That the parts within my PC will get too hot and/or overheat. (I will not be overclocking my CPU until I get high end water cooling, but I am worried my GTX 780 in 2 way SLI non overclocked will get extremely hot)

3. I need a reliable and powerful enough Power Supply for overclocking/future upgrades etc... ais the one that I choose match all of the things I need out of it?

Heres my PC parts -

  1. Best answer
    There also the newer be quiet fans out there. For a silent pc use a fan controller to turn off or down unneeded fans. A good unit is 30.
  2. Thanks do you mind linking me those quieter fans? and fan control? and what do you mean by 30? 30 fans or? lol sorry my mind got confused haha. Thanks for replying by the way
  3. What's your monitor resolution?
    The Corsair H100i is quite loud due to it's pump. You definitely want to stick with air-cooling for quietness until you get your own custom loop going.
    Here's a much better quality psu: http://www.amazon.com/XFX-PRO1050W-Compatible-Certified-P11050BEFX/dp/B0066AH46G/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1378088830&sr=1-1&keywords=xfx+1050w
    For fans, Noctua makes great fans that are both efficient and quiet. However, they are quite the ugly fans: http://www.amazon.com/Noctua-NF-P12-Premium-Bearing-PWM/dp/B006GDDV2E/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top
  4. Thanks the monitor I'm going with is either -
    1. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005BZNDOO/ref=ox_sc_act_title_2?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=A33Y0YQUZ2NYD5
    or
    2. http://www.amazon.com/VG248QE-24-Inch-Screen-LED-lit-Monitor/dp/B00B2HH7G0

    Ill be using 3 monitors in total, but only 2 will be hooked up to my PC, the 3rd will be on my PS4. ....and out of the 2monitors that will be hooked up to my PC, only one will be displaying the game in full screen, the other monitor that will be hooked up to my PC will have either sony vegas or YouTube or google chrome pulled up on it.

    so in short answer ...lol 1920x1080
  5. A single GTX 780 should be fine enough for you. What I would do is buy a single GTX 780 for now and test it out. If you feel like you're not getting the performance you want, you can always buy another 780 a couple of days after you build your system.
  6. also is the PSU very very quiet and very good and reliable?
  7. Yes. XFX psus are great quality and quiet.
  8. Ok thanks man, just another question
    Whats a great cpu air heat sink that is very quiet?
  9. and I am probably going to go with the 2 way SLI GTX 780's over a single because I am looking for the best FPS I can buy with my money, thanks for the concern on that issue though. I appreciate it
