First custom workstation build – Compatibility check and feedback

Hey all,

This is my first custom workstation build for video editing, color grading and 3D generalism. I would appreciate if you could tell me whether there is everything that I need and if parts are compatible. I feel a bit overwhelmed after building my first system. Thank you so much in advance!

All parts from www.mindfactory.de

    Lovely build, if only the rest of us could afford it. You could go with another GPU like a Nvidia 780 Ti, which is better and over in the UK, is cheaper. You don't need the PSU that powerful, you could reduce to a 1000W and run everything fine

    Thank you for reply.

    I changed my CPU to: 1000 Watt Corsair RM Series Modular 80+ Gold

    Also I was about to get GTX 780 as a secondary GPU that I will swap if required for certain purpose.
  3. Sounds good
