More about 1400 dollar build expert
  1. What's the purpose of this build?
  2. I would suggest a better PSU... I don't trust cheap parts with high end parts. Use (1) Antec, (2) EVGA, (3) Corsair, (4) Cooler Master, anything below Cooler Master is asking for it... I pick Antec first over anything... Other than that your build looks good...
  3. Since you are just using it for gaming I recommend using the I5 4670K CPU. No reason to get a I7 for gaming. I would also only get 8gb of ram since this is a gaming build. Take that extra savings and get a GTX 780TI.

    i'm sorry i made a few adjustments i've been working on this build for a while now and I must of forgotten to save last time i edited it
  13. oh it has a i7 i see. yea you should stay away from recommending peoples pc mr 'realchaos' he wants a gaming rig. why would you spend more money on the processor then the gpu. what a JOKE. also don't forget to buy some case fans that I didn't include for that build. that is a full tower case tons of room for cooling
  14. Waiting on your email Drake
  15. Did you even read this thread. He is going to be using this computer for "gaming,editing,work etc"
    It's not ONLY GAMING. He does work and editing on it too, which is where the i7 and 16gb of ram will help. A GTX 770 can already max out anything at 1080p anyways.
    Not to mention that the OP is in Canada and you're using U.S.A. prices. Components in Canada are more expensive. Next time, please read the thread. Or at least the first post.
