GTX 780/i5-4670K build, Kindly help me decide on rest of the parts.


Building a gaming PC for MMO's , Entertainments & 3D .

I don't plan to overclock , add another GPU card , or modify the system in any way.

I'll buy all parts from this site :, So far i decided on:

Price is 2191 AED/597$

Price is 973AED/ 265$

So, This is what i need to know:

1- Is this GPU an overkill for MMO's and 3d?"I only change PC's once every 4 years".

2-Can you help me pick a PSU, Case, MOBO ,HDD & 8GB RAM from same site ""? my budget for them is 1800AED/500$

I'll pick best answer and rate , thank you in advance :)

  1. If you don't plan to overclock then there is no need for a k series processor, however, MMOs are CPU heavy so OCing down the line wouldn't be a bad idea.
  2. Best answer
    I think for 4 years this card is a good choice as it will be able to play the newest games in 4 years time (on lowered settings of course). Here are the rest of the parts i recommend:

    Also, as mentioned above, you do not need a K series CPU (in fact the motherboard suggested in my post cannot overlock)
    I suggest you go with an i5 4570. This way you will be saving 100AED while having nearly the same performance.
  3. Gamz4 ,Thank you . I'll do that if i feel the need , I wanted to buy the best CPU for GTX 780 , and this CPU was recommended here in the forums :)
  4. Thank you so much H4X3R!

    I got what i need now , time to shop:)
  5. 1- not overkill gpu, mmo like planetside 2 forces antialiasing and stress a 780 to it max.

    2- psu:
    case: and get 1 more 140mm fractal fans to put in front
  6. @Plushthinking Iq:
    1) The power supply series GM from cooler master SUCK! The forton i suggest is both cheaper and made by a REPUTABLE PSU maker, FSP (also make corsair HX and TX power supplies as well as other high tier branded PSUs).
    2) That case is too expensive and would go above his budget.
