I am looking for some help in building my first PC. My budget for this build is £1100 maximum.
I have been looking around and have a fairly good idea of what i want.
What i have so far is:
CPU:Intel I5 4670k or Intel I7 4770k
Motherboard: Don't know exactly but i have been looking at the better z87 motherboards
Case:Been looking at one of the NZXT Phantom cases but i am open to suggestions(Looking for good cooling and silent fans)
Ram:Corsair Vengeance Pro 2x4Gb
PSU:Corsair 750W 80+ gold
SSD:Kingston 120gb HyperX 3K SSD bundle
HDD:Seagate 2TB Desktop 3.5inch 8GB SSD SSHD
OS:I am capable of getting hold of Windows 8.1 Pro for £50
Disc Drive: Suggestions Please
SoundCard: Asus Xonar DG 5.1 surround sound card
This PC will not be upgraded for about 3-4 years so i am looking for it to be able to last that long with decent performance. The PC will be used for normal computing, gaming and maybe some video editing. Please modify my choices if you believe that i can get better components as i am open to suggestions.Thanks
If you're not going to go for sli is the 750watt psu to much imo.A good 550watt would be enough and 650 would be more than enough.
With a ssd for your o.s. imo you don't need a hybrid hdd.It is more expensive and doesn't really add something since the pc already will for instance boot fast because of that ssd.
I havent specified a case, but there is £90 left in the budget for one.
Upgraded the Gfx Card and SSD, put a different PSU in with lower power but higher quality, it is still too powerful, but currently the 650 is cheaper than the 550, so take the overkill route. Swapped the RAM to a cheaper but very well reviewed set of 2X4Gb.
Im not sure on the Sound card, I have an old X-FI but use usb 5.1 headphones so I dont use it that much. Cant comment on your choice.
I also dropped the SSHD in favour of a standard 2TB hdd, but this could be changed around for not much extra cost. Depends what case you choose.
