Hey and thanks in advanced for any assistance you can give on the build. I am looking to put together a PC for Gaming, Live Streaming and Editing as this is a huge part of my life it will be doing these things daily and will need to be able to handle all I throw at it!

These is what iv been looking towards so far -

Case - COOLERMASTER CM690 MKII ADVANCED CASE
Processor (CPU) - Intel i7-4770k
CPU Cooler - Noctua NH-D14
Motherboard - ASUS MAXIMUS VI HERO
Memory - 16GB KINGSTON HYPERX BEAST DUAL-DDR3 2400MHz (2 x 8GB KIT)
Graphics Card - 2GB NVIDIA GEFORCE GTX 770 EVGA
HDD - 1TB WD CAVIAR BLACK (Have another 1TB in my current PC that I will be using in the new one as well)
PSU - CORSAIR 750W RM SERIES GOLD

Total cost is looking aroun £1000-£1100

The I7 is more for the rendering/streaming side, I know it does little for the gaming compared to the I5. I do a lot of multitasking so thats why I went more towards the 16GB of ram.

Once again thanks for any advice on what iv currently got together!

For 1100 you can get the best single GPU on the market:

Hey thanks for the reply. On that list I notice the Ram doesn't seem to have a price or be added into the overall price. Also is it worth downgrading the HDD to the one you use on that list for what I plan on using the PC for?

Ok changed the build a little, was looking at the 780 TI but it seems its a waste of time if you don't plan on using a resolution over 1080p (Which I don't) or if you are planning on using 3 monitors (again I don't)

How is that list looking right now? Also missing a PSU and CPU cooler, will plan on doing some light overclocking and in terms of the PSU I wouldn't mind having the option to SLI later down the line so having a little more juice wouldn't be a bad thing.

Slightly over my budget but that was because I threw in a SSD which I originally didn't plan on getting. So how does that look over? Any recommendations on changes would be appreciated, if its all good then I will start ordering!

Looks solid, I would personally spend less on the motherboard, this UD4H is very well reviewed and Gigabyte really has done a great job with their 1150 boards. I also upgraded you to faster RAM which will make a difference with your multitasking and editing.

Perfect! Thanks for the confirmation on my choices and the change in mobo/ram. Will begin shopping around to get each part!
