http://pcpartpicker.com/user/Makchevy/saved/3roC

Well here is what I got so far let me know if i can shift money around or whats up.

Looking for a gaming pc and burning videos.
Budget is about 2500, can push to 3000.

No need for monitor or keyboard or mouse.

Also would rather have a aluminum case.

Also this will be build in the next couple months so if any new better parts coming out let me know and ill hold on for it.

    Is this build better? Also im planning to make ot water cooled later and is 1 graphic card enough?
  2. $3000 budget? Would you actually spend this or is it just what you "I cannot spend ANY more than this"?
  3. Here is your build a little modified...

    A better CPU for the same price (better OC as well)
    A better GPU for the same price + Second for sli ;) (can OC as well)
    A better SSD for less (same space)
    A stronger PSU for the sli (about same price)
    A second set of ram (4x4gb) to speed up processes.
    The case may not be exactly what you asked for but it blows everything out of the water at its price range.

  4. Yeah thats better, in fact monster build.
    With motherboard, Z87-Pro has WiFi/ BT in it whereas maximus VI Hero has better Audio and used for heavy gaming and overclocking.
    At last, gtx780ti will not be problem in any game or burning videos and will max out on each and every high end gaming platform. One card will be sufficient for your needs.
    Good luck :)
  5. Sorry, extra post.

    with gtx760, 2 gb vram, i think upcoming future games will use more than that.

    I would COMPLETELY agree with you. I didn't want to approach his $3000 limit without the OK. I tried to just upgrade his original without increasing the price too much. I still think the M500 960gb is the best ssd though and he might as well do a RAID with a couple 2tb hdds to give him space to keep that SSD free of clutter forever.(elitegamingcomputers.com & tomshardware.com)

    thanks for agreeing with me there. I think gtx 780ti will be enough for him though as he can have a room for sli if he ever wants in future. And m500 has nice reviews too and its up to him if he wants to RAID or not, we are here just to express our views and move him in right direction :D

    never gave a thought about that :D
    best answer should be one which helps other users visiting the forum in the similar situation
  11. Asus VS247H-P 23.6-Inch Full-HD LED-Lit LCD Monitor

    Yes I Would spend it. Also I am planning to water cool it in the future. Here is the monitors Ill be running. 2 of em for now but might go to 3 in a few months
  12. Also what do yall think about this case

    http://www.coolermaster.com/case/mid-tower-silent-series/silencio652/

    Also no need for fans besides cpu cooler, fans controlls already picked out and so as temp gages.
    That will be separate purchase

    Oh, alright. Well, that case should do fine. I picked the one I did because of its highly recommended status for cooling. All of our ideas are just suggestions. Anything in that range should do beautifully as long as you know what your doing. :)

    With a 3k budget, your computer is going to rock pretty much anyway you spend it. It should stay in ultra/high settings for awhile.

    Anything else you would like help on with this build? I am kind of lost at this point, haha.
  14. GoT another build to try see what u think also ill ne adding water cooling and 2nd 780 ti card in a couple of months

    No to the Velco drive. With your SSD its pretty much useless. Id get a 2tb 7200 like a barracuda for storage instead. Other than that, pretty solid.
  16. Yup, agree with Direxec. Get a best reliable hdd for your storage as you have SSD for all your loading work to be handled.
    Good luck :D

    Holy..... A second 780ti? This build just went from crazy to insane. I guess to each their own but would you really need that card? I'd just save it for the next upgrade cycle.
