New High End Build, $1500 Budget (3 Monitor Gaming, Video Editing)

Last response: in Systems

December 2, 2013 2:14:29 PM

My cousin Nick wants to build a high end PC intended for 3 1080p monitor gaming and some light video editing. I'm in charge of ordering his parts and building the PC. I already have a Corsair CX500 PSU, 8GB of Kingston Hyper-X Blu Memory, and a 1TB Seagate Barracuda 7200RPM Drive that I would like to use in the build. I also have a Windows 7 Home Premium copy for him. He also prefers Intel CPU's.

That that leaves us to need a new CPU, GPU, CASE, MOBO, SSD (120GB approx), Keyboard (Needs to be mechanical), Mouse, a Headset, and three 1080p 21.5-22" monitors. We prefer to buy from only Canadian/American retailers as we are from Michigan of the USA. His budget is $1500 including shipping (give or take $100) Keep in mind that all this hardware needs to be compatible with the 500W PSU that I already have.

The ultimate goal of this build is to able to play BF4 with 3 monitors on Ultra Settings with at least 60FPS. If you have any questions, please let me know. Also as a side note, I already somewhat have a case in mind. The Corsair 200r. If you could add that into the budget that would be great! Thank you so much everyone!

3x1080p ultra 60+ fps not possible.
Try high settings 50+ fps

You might have a bit of a limitation on that PSU. 500W is plenty for a mid-high end system with a single graphics card, but to get a 3 monitor gaming build up and running, you are going to be looking at either a single very expensive graphics card or a combination of two mid-high end ones. If you want to overclock the processor, this could easily amount to 750-900W requirement.
Additionally, there isn't much on the market that can handle BF4 at over 60fps in 5760*1080.

As everyone else is likely to focus on things you can't afford, I'll try to look at things that you can. This setup is only good for a single monitor setup really. It won't get 60fps on Ultra with MSAA maxxed, but it'll give perfectly playable framerates and won't require a PSU swap. I went for the 330R over the 200R because its cheaper right now. Neither are the greatest in terms of airflow, but if you are just running one graphics card, you should be fine.

Obviously increasing the graphics card by much requires a change of PSU.

60 FPS with 3 monitors on ultra with at least 60 fps, 500W psu will not be enough. You need an 850W PSU minimum.

Basically what you need is at least a GTX770 in SLI. Which by itself eats up about $650 from your budget.

If your memory can be used and the HDD, then this would be able to do it. However also needing to get those 3 monitors, i would say that if you scratch the 2nd GPU and just get the monitors from below, you might get that.
But anyway this should list what you need to be looking at to get that far. Most likely you need R9 290X's to get that FPS.
Here is the link to BF4 at 2560x1440 which is approx 2/3 of the pixels in the 3x 1080p setup.

Capacity aside, what kind of 500W PSU do you have? How big is the 12V rail, what kind of PCIe cables does it have and how many? Whether or not 500W is enough, if the thing doesn't have at least one 6-pin cable and one 6+2-pin cable, it won't work for any current higher-end GPU.

Below is what I'd call a barebones machine for BF4 across three displays. It leaves you about $400 for monitors and peripherals.

PCPartPicker part list

CPU: Intel Core i5-4440 3.1GHz Quad-Core Processor ($178.98 @ SuperBiiz)
Motherboard: ASRock Z87 Extreme4 ATX LGA1150 Motherboard ($127.99 @ Newegg)
Storage: Crucial M500 120GB 2.5" Solid State Disk ($89.99 @ Newegg)
Video Card: Gigabyte GeForce GTX 760 4GB Video Card (2-Way SLI) ($289.99 @ Newegg)
Video Card: Gigabyte GeForce GTX 760 4GB Video Card (2-Way SLI) ($289.99 @ Newegg)
Case: Corsair 200R ATX Mid Tower Case ($59.99 @ Amazon)
Power Supply: SeaSonic 650W 80+ Gold Certified Semi-Modular ATX Power Supply ($59.99 @ Newegg)
Total: $1096.92

First, add the i5 of your choice. I think a 4440 is fine. Other's will complain, saying it can't overclock, but the fact is that BF4 will not tax a stock i5. You'd need twin 780s or triple 770s before a stock i5 would be the bottleneck. So I say grab a 4440 and save the money on both chip and CPU cooling to put toward other hardware.

Next, how seriously will you be video editing on this thing? If it's a big priority, I recommend upping your RAM to 16GB at least.

Twin 760s will be ok for triple screens around medium details. If you want better performance, dual 770s will add $200 to the price above. And since you're playing such high resolution, you might want to look into 4GB GPUs. But as others have said, the graphic hardware necessary to really max BF4 on three screens costs $1500 on it's own, let alone the rest of the system.

Now back to the PSU. A GTX 760 tops out around 160W ( though gaming draw is closer to 150W. ) A 770 and 780 run 250W max ( though again, gaming draw on each is closer to 200W. ) So a good 650W PSU is enough to SLI any of these three cards ( if you're heavily overclocking your hardware, bump it up to a 750W. ) But you don't need to go above 750W unless you XFire 290Xs ( and even that is debatable. )

The 500W PSU won't cut it for a gtx 780.

Alright, thanks for the quick response! What would you recommend I do then? Just get a new PSU and future proof it? Or.. get a lower costing GPU and send the extra cash on peripherals?

You can run a GTX780 on a CX500. Should you? Probably not.
Realistically, your load power draw is likely to be somewhere in the region of 350-400W before you touch overclocking. As soon as you do that, power reqs are a little harder to predict. The CX500 has a 38A 12V rail, so 456W maximum 12V capacity. 50W sounds like a comfortable amount of headroom, but that's approaching 90% capacity. It's probably not a good idea.

As for your build, if you want to overclock at some point, then you'll need to pick a Z87 motherboard. If you don't want to overclock, then save yourself some cash on the processor and drop to pretty much any other i5.

On a performance note, as we all said above, a GTX780 won't cut it for BF4 at 5760*1080P. Realistically, with all the settings turned up, you'll get maybe 20-25fps average.
