Hello, A good friend of mine has hired me to build a gaming PC for him, he is going to be recording himself for youtube/ live streaming on it.
Approximate Purchase Date: 2-3 weeks
Budget Range: ~2100, can go a little over for shipping and what not, but would prefer to stay under
System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, recording/editing, everything else
Are you buying a monitor: Yes
Do you need to buy OS: Yes
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Newegg
Location: Northern Ohio, USA
Parts Preferences: Intel and Nvidia
SLI or Crossfire: Yes
Your Monitor Resolution 1920x1080, but will be upgrading to 3 1080 monitor in the future
Additional Comments: Alright, my friend has requested that he has multipul graphics cards in it, that it has an i7 processor,Nvidia graphics card, that it has a dedicated sound card, that the case is a Thor V2 ( Rosewell, I think makes it), and that everything is overclocked as high as it will go.
I already have a build in mind for him, but I would like to see what the community comes up with.
sorry if this inst formatted correctly, im kinda new ( although i've been building PCs for people for a while)
The build I had in mind, was
Roswell Thor V2 case
2 Seagate Barracuda 2TB in RAID 0
2 zotac Gtx 770s ( 2GB)
an EVGA 1000w modular PSU
Crosair vengance 16GB ram DDR3 1600 ( 2x8 sticks)
GIGABYTE GA-Z87X-OC motherboard
Intel i7- 4770K Cpu
He is selecting a mouse/keyboard/monitor. and for a CPU cooler im not sure.
if anyone has any advise, then feel free, or if you have a better build also feel free to say. Thanks.
P.s. sorry for any typos, it's ~2 am ( my PC's time is off by a bit) and im very tired, but I cant sleep ( mild insomnia)
For a cooler, depending on the OC planned , up to 4.4 or 4.5 a Hyper 212 EVO is good beyond than look at the Phanteks, I'd change the mobo to the Asus Hero, Asus seems to have the best handle on the Z87/Haswells. You don't mention what DRAM would suggest 1866/2133, not so much for gaming, but for the other apps - could prob drop the PSU a bit and might look to add a SSD for OS and apps
