oh btw, if your going to be overclocking this beast, get some Scythe Ultra Kaze fans for the CPU cooler, dont use the noctua ones, i could only get it up to 3.6GHz with the noctua fans. http://www.amazon.com/Scythe-DFS123812H-3000-Ultra-Kaze...

Power supply will allow SLI 780ti's in the future.

780ti is the best board out there now, or at least comparable to the R9 290X.
16GB RAM is plenty for any conceivable gaming for years to come.
Quick monitor to boost first person shooter game response.
Noctua cooler for future overclocking of CPU.

Get a GTX 780 Ti, you do not need 32GB of ram, or two DVD/CD writers. Also, you can a NZXT source 530 full tower which is so much cheaper than the Corsair 750D.

What's with these builds. Since this is a gaming rig, there is absolutely no need for a socket LGA 2011 build. They are expensive and meant for workstations. Haswell is a lot cheaper and plenty enough for a gaming build. Also, 16gb of ram is overkill for games as well. Games do not even used 8gb of ram.

-i7-4770k is plenty for gaming. Right now, games still can't fully utilize the hyper threading of an i7-4770k, so it's not even close to utilizing the 4930k.
-8gb of ram is enough.
-Better quality SSD. Never go with the Kingston V300 SSD. After changing the NAND, the V300 series are one of the slowest SSDs on the market.
-Better version of the GTX 780 ti with an aftermarket cooler.
-No need for blu-ray drive, but if you really need one then you can add it back in.
-Windows 8.1 is more optimized.

this build is ~$700 cheaper than everything here and will still perform the same in games.

You need 16GB of if you want to run a server and also be able to play games, and also from my experience with running servers, the server uses 7-8GB of ram. Also the LGA 2011 sockets are great for servers and gaming/video editting.

I've been able to successfully run a minecraft server and play games with no problems with my 8gb of ram and FX-6300, so an i7 and 8gb of ram should be fine. The OP can always add more ram if 8gb is insufficient anyways.

Still definitely no need for socket LGA 2011, more so the expensive and over-rated Sabertooth motherboard. Doesn't matter if you're hosting a minecraft server, it's still a waste of money.
Also, I would highly recommend the Gigabyte GTX 780 ti that I posted above. Not only is it cheaper, but it has better cooling due to it having an aftermarket cooler over the reference cooler found on the EVGA one you posted.

Yes, but SLI 780s are an extra $350 over a single 780 ti. A single 780 ti can already max out every game so there is no need for extra power. Also, a single 780 ti gives him the option to SLI in the future as an upgrade instead of having to throw away both of the 780s, resulting in better performance.

this is true to a point. when this computer is needing an upgrade there will be a new higher gpu out anyways. sli 780's "if he can afford it" would be the best route to go, i understand that theres not really a "future proofing" but sli 780's may last alot longer in the gaming word than a single 780ti and he wouldnt have to spend any more cash down the road.

Thanks. Per reviews, the GTX 780TI is just fast enough for the latest games to hit 60FPS at high settings. However, going into the future this will not hold. Also if he wants to upgrade his display or go multi-display then the 780TI will not max all out.

I would say if you are dead set on keeping your 1920X1080 display, then the GTX 780ti is great. However, I upgraded myself to 30 inch displays with 2560X1600 displays and really, really like them. I have a GTX Titan and am okay with performance. I cannot max out everything, but it is acceptable. My upgrade prospects are complex.

I assume you are kidding. If not, you want to use another graphics card. The Titan has very fast precision floating point math capability. Something not needed for gaming. So it is wasteful if you don't need this function. With three displays you are starting to hit 3GB RAM limits. You may want to consider the R9 290 & R9 290X with their 4GB memory. Otherwise you always have the Titan Black, which is the Titan with all 15 cores running.

A reminder:

Titan Black & 780ti 15 cores
Titan 14 cores
780 12 cores

Im going single display.
So should i take a 2 way sli with 780? or one 780 ti


I would say if you are dead set on keeping your 1920X1080 display, then the GTX 780ti is great. However, I upgraded myself to 30 inch displays with 2560X1600 displays and really, really like them. I have a GTX Titan and am okay with performance. I cannot max out everything, but it is acceptable. My upgrade prospects are complex.



ive been thinking myself when i get my new displays about going 3 way sli titans.....cant wait.


I assume you are kidding. If not, you want to use another graphics card. The Titan has very fast precision floating point math capability. Something not needed for gaming. So it is wasteful if you don't need this function. With three displays you are starting to hit 3GB RAM limits. You may want to consider the R9 290 & R9 290X with their 4GB memory. Otherwise you always have the Titan Black, which is the Titan with all 15 cores running.

A reminder:

Titan Black & 780ti 15 cores
Titan 14 cores
780 12 cores




ill be getting the newest and baddest.....so yes the titan black or better.


Titan series are meant for developing games cuz it has the quadro series DNA in it. and if your planning on getting one of the Titan series why not wait get the Titan Z $3000 USD.
