Is this PC good for 2200$ only gaming

Like the title says but is the PSU good enough? And anything else that could be optimised?

    When you are on your partlist, there is a spot near the top-left that lists a link to the build. Your link is from your browser address bar, and takes us to the build we are personally working on, not what you have selected.
  6. what the main purpose of your build? What's the resolution of your monitor and how many you have them? How far will you be overclocking your processor?

    Resolution of the monitor: 1920x1080 one monitor ASUS 24 inch. Only learning how to OC maybe get better at it in the future. The main purpose is only for gaming. Also I when and if I start overclocking I won't be pushing it far only in the future though for now I will be doing light OC. When a better CPU is needed for games I will learn how to OC quite a bit.

    Is the H100i from Corsair an overkill? I'm guessing that in another 2-3 years the games might demand more from the CPU that's when I would start practicing heavy overclocking.
  8. Actually everything looks good. You could save a few bucks here and there, but all solid, good-quality parts. I would only change to the Antec HCG 850w because it's a bit higher quality for only $5 more.

    That said, I just noticed you're on a single 1080p monitor. Are you planning to go with 3 monitors for gaming in the future? If you're sticking with a single 1080p monitor, dual 780s is way overkill.

    Sorry for info I have 2 of the same ASUS monitors but I thought using only one would be good. Should I use two instead? BTW they are 24 inch 1920x1080.

    Also would a hyper 212 evo be sufficent enough for me now? (For only light OCing at the moment.
  10. Best answer
    For light overclocking, the 212 EVO is about the best value out there. And no, 2 monitor gaming is awkward lol If you're using a single 1080p screen a single 780 would be more than plenty. If you want to get a third monitor, we can definitely move some parts around to get you a 3rd monitor as well.

  11. Going with single monitor for now, i would pick GTX 780 Ti for now. Here is what i would recommend:

    If you are going to add another GTX 780 Ti afterwards+going for water cooling and getting 3rd display anytime then pick up the above configuration. Asus is the best known to handle OC components with great stability and provides you the best out of it.

    If you are going to stay with single card, then change the psu to
    Antec HCG M 750W: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/antec-power-supply-hcg750m

    For light overclocking of your cpu, Hyper 212 Evo is the best.

    Wow awesome thanks for the great build! I forgot to put the monitor model though but it's the right one. I have just one more question though would a windows 7 ultimate sp1 64bit be better for gaming than a windows 8.1?
  13. Thanks all for your help!
  14. No, Widnows 8.1 is generally better performance-wise for gaming. Windows 7 Ultimate is a waste for gaming.

    And good guess on the monitor lol It just happened to fit the budget. Dual 780s on 3x1080p monitors will give you 50+ fps with high/ultra details in everything, and looks freaking awesome doing it lol

    I don't want to see a $2,200 budget go into a single 1080p screen for gaming, you won't get the joy out of it :P lol
