Solved New build advice Tags: New Build Build Motherboards Systems Last response: October 30, 2013 8:03 PM in Systems Share theDoItYourselfAmeture October 30, 2013 7:43:19 PM So with the nvidea price cuts the 780 is now only $540 (Nvidea fan) and iv heard some rumors that broadwell will require new motherboards wile still on the 1150 socket will require a new mobo http://www.geek.com/chips/upgrading-from-haswell-to-bro... http://news.techeye.net/chips/intels-broadwell-will-mea... I want to build a system that will rock on for next four years (going to college, bad time to build I know) and want the best parts to last that long. and I want to know a few things Should I just wait for the 780ti and a little more cash, I know its overkill for a single monitor, but I like really good parts (Nvidea fan, but open to 290x if new coolers come out) Is Haswell really worth getting over Ivy with lower prices on Ivy and with new motherboard going to be needed for Broadwell. I want to do low to medium overclock eventually and Ill buy a cpu cooler when I decide to overclock. using a single 24' monitor 60ghz refresh rate this is my build and budget is $1600 although it goes over I going to see if I can scrounge up some pennies from under the couch.
