Hey guys, I need your help. I have spent around a month looking at reviews, and comparisons on parts to build a system i can keep for a long time. Last time I built a system I was pretty broke, so I want to get one now that will be able to run anything i throw at it for the next couple of years.

This PC will be used more for gaming with games like SC2/ BF4/ TitanFall (when it comes out)/ and so on. I also want to be able to use iTunes when I play Starcraft 2 which i hear is harder on Windows. I do use my computer as my media center which is why i chose such a big hard drive.

Here is what i use:


CPU: Intel Core i7-4770K 3.5GHz Quad-Core Processor ($279.99 @ Micro Center)
CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-D14 65.0 CFM CPU Cooler ($73.75 @ Amazon)
Motherboard: Asus Maximus VI Hero ATX LGA1150 Motherboard ($189.99 @ NCIX US)
Memory: Corsair Vengeance LP 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($144.99 @ Amazon)
Storage: Samsung 840 EVO 250GB 2.5" Solid State Disk ($169.98 @ OutletPC)
Storage: Seagate Barracuda 3TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($114.99 @ Newegg)
Video Card: EVGA GeForce GTX 780 3GB Video Card ($505.91 @ Newegg)
Case: Corsair 600T Mesh (Black) ATX Mid Tower Case ($139.99 @ Newegg)
Power Supply: EVGA SuperNOVA 650W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply ($94.99 @ NCIX US)
Optical Drive: LG WH16NS40 Blu-Ray/DVD/CD Writer ($75.98 @ Newegg)
Monitor: Asus VG248QE 144Hz 24.0" Monitor ($263.99 @ Amazon)
Total: $2080.54
(Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available.)

Based on your wanting to have this Pc last for several years there is one thing I would change and that is the video card. I would go with the GTX 780Ti.

I thought that the GTX 780Ti was only 5% better than the GTX780. Do you think that the $200 price hike is worth it?

Depending on the game being played and the resolution it will be from 10% to 20% better. With a rebate or sale price that difference in price can be reduced to about $150 and that makes it worth it.

The lowest I found is EVGA 03G-P4-2881-KR at $699.99 at NewEgg. I'll take note and change it to the Ti then. Thanks for the help.

Pretty much everything in your system is great and will last for years. Although i would change the psu to either a Seasonic or a Corsair. When running a high end system, i would go for one of the most reliably based brand of psu on the market. I haven't heard anything about Evga psu's, but iv heard nothing but good things about Corsair and Seasonic.
