I am mostly going to use it for BF4, CSGO, Black Ops and a few other games.

Some browsing, some movies, music. but mostly gaming.

Just deciding if i should go dual 780ti.

Budget - $3500


- MSI Z87-MPOWER
- i7-4770K
- 3G GTX 780 Ti MSI-TwinFrozer
- 16G Kit 2133(8Gx2) G.Skill Trident-X
- Samsung 840 EVO Series SATA3 1TB
- 1ms Benq XL2420TE(144Hz)
- CC600T White
- Corsair 80Plus Gold RM1000

I don't have anything bad to say about that build :) 

You could save money on the CPU since the i7 shouldn't be much better for gaming than an i5. With a build like that you could set up a second monitor to stream while you are gaming, which is what I plan on doing with my not-quite-so-good build :p 

Edit: SLI 780 TIs? Think you are trying to make me cry :p  I don't think you particularly need them unless you are trying to play your games on a cinema screen.

With that build you will be able to run BF4 maxed out 60+ FPS all day long (you will run on higher FPS) ;) . As BF4 is the most intensive game you mentioned, others will run even smoother!

Why a 1TB SSD? 250 to 500 GB will be fine for most games ? You could better spend the extra 150-250$ on something else =).
Just buy a 1TB WD caviar black + 250 GB SSD and you should run games fine as well. I know that new games like BF4 take up a lot of space, but you are mainly going to buy an SSD for faster loading times in your case... Some games that don't require so much power (780ti/4770k) won't even need the SSD =).

Also, why the i7? Are you going to stream/host a lot? The i5 4670k is pretty much the same for gaming =) You will loose a bit of performance when browsing (not that you are going to notice with a system like that), but it won't decrease your FPS when gaming.

For the dual 780ti, it won't be needed for your build unless you actually NEED the extra FPS for your monitor =). You are playing on 1080p or higher?

Main reason I was going for the i7 was there was very little difference in price, from memory it was 100ish dollars.

Hahah.. yeh the reason for the second card, was thinking if i get it, it will pull even better and more consistent FPS. Wouldn't mind seeing it at 100FPS consistent..

Plus this will be my last build for quite a while.. So thought while I have 'permission slip' from the missus, might as well go for it :)

True on the harddrive, but thought since i have the budget why not :)  and this build won't happen again for quite a while.. :)  needs to last me. hehehe

At this stage.. yeh, would just be 1080p...
