Thinking of building my own computer, need help!

Hey,

I am thinking of building my own computer and this would be my first time and I am not sure if all the parts would fit together. I would greatly appreciate anyones help and or advice. The parts I was thinking of are as follows.

Corsair Carbide Series 300R
Intel Core i7 4770K Quad Core
Asus Z87-K
Corsair Memory Vengeance Jet Black 8GB DDR3 1866 MHz
Corsair 120mm Hydro Series H80i
Samsung 840 Series 120GB SSD
Western Digital 1TB internal Hard Drive
LG ELECTRONICS GH24NS95 LG CD drive
Nvidia GeForce GTX Titan 6GB GDDR5
Corsair CX750 Builder Series CX 750W

Would these parts work well together?

  1. It's a good build and will work well together. However, I noticed that you picked a GTX Titan alongside an Asus Z87-K. That motherboard only supports crossfire. I would suggest that you get an Asus Z87-A which supports both crossfire and SLI. Having an SLI motherboard is important if you wish to have 2-way sli GTX Titan in the future.
  2. Thanks a lot for your reply! I would like to ask what you think of the EVGA Nvidia GeForce GTX780 Superclocked, it is a lot cheaper and I have read that it is nearly equal in performance with the titan
  3. If you're going to spend that much, I would get a nicer power supply. Corsair is fine but try one of their enthusiast lines instead of the CX series.
  4. would Corsair TX750V2 Enthusiast Series 750W be a better choice?

    The GTX 780 is more bang for the buck. It's a lot cheaper for an almost similar performance. I would most definitely say yes to that. The only reason why the GTX Titan is so expensive because it is Nvidia's epeen. It's the most powerful single video card in the world and packs a "real 6GB VRAM" unlike the HD 7990 wherein they advertise it as 6GB VRAM but you can only use 3GB VRAM. But nevertheless, if I were you, I would pick the GTX 780 because it simply gives you more bang for the buck.

    Cool thanks I will go for that then. Regarding the case which case do you recommend? I was looking at the Coolermaster Storm Enforcer Mid Tower ATX Case or Corsair Carbide Series 400R

    Well, it boils down to personal preference. However, the Coolermaster is more appealing to me.

    Here is a good reference to take a look at, but yeah Corsair TX and AX are generally preferred to CX unless you are doing a budget machine.
