---------------------------------------------

Apologies for the clutter. I've done my pseudo research and i've found all parts to be compatible, i'm expecting to be able to play almost any game on atleast High-Ultra. I'm also wondering if my PSU is sufficient to support another GTX760 for SLI? Thanks in advance for your responses and let me know if anything is wrong, or conversely, if things are very right! Also, any suggestions on noticeable upgrades over my choices at similar price levels will be greatly appreciated!

  1. cool build, yeah the psu is enough for 2 760 ,im just gonna recomend the samsung evo 120 gb for the ssd ,but it is personal preference lol
  2. It will support the 760 in sli:)


    If it is going to be your first build i recommend reading this thoroughly
    http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/faq/id-1657114/step-step-guide-building.html

    and watching this

  3. Thanks for the responses :) glad to know I wont need to replace my PSU for SLI then! I'll be using the written guide on tomshardware that you linked as guidance(can't use too much help!), even though i've made a few rigs before(this is my first from scratch, piece by piece, all chosen by me xD) hehe.

    Do you guys reckon its a great build? One a hardcore gamer would be proud of owning? Cause thats what i'm hoping for! Been gaming all my life but this is the first time I can afford my "near dream" rig, i'm just hoping its universally "dreamy" :D

    yeah its a cool one, but im suggesting for one powerfull card than SLI, cause SLI can cause a lot of problem in some games

    It will be a great build:D
    I recommend overclocking your CPU to 4Ghz using the multiplier setting in the bios. You will need to disable turbo core.It should be easy:)

    I have the same CPU and have it running at 4Ghz.

    I hope you have a lot of fun gaming on it and have a Happy New Year:D
