Gaming/Work PC build suggestions/help

Hi there,

I am currently working on building myself a pc (my first build of my own), the general purpose will be for gaming. but it will also be used for things such as photo editiing, video editing and 3D rendering.

Here is list of items so far:

Mobo: ASUS SABERTOOTH X79
PSU: Corsair RM850 850W
Cooler: Noctua NH-D14 SE2011
GPU: ASUS GTX780TI DC2OC 3GD5
CPU: Intel-Core i7 4930K 3.4GHz Box
Ram: vengeance cml16gx3m4a1600c9
SSD: Samsung-840-Evo-MZ-7TE500-500GB
HDD: Seagate Barracuda ST3000DM001 3TB
Case: Cooler Master Storm Trooper
Optic drive: Samsung SH 224DB

Now the goal of this build is having a solid build, running everything smooth and possibilities for expanding/upgrading later on (maybe for another GPU)

1. will my stuff fit in the case i chose? (i'm very open minded to changing case if not)
2. i tried to find some low profile ram to make sure they would fit under the cooler. will they fit?
3. suggestions for upgrades or such.

Thanks alot for reading.

/K

    Hi,
    -Better get Corsair AX unit. RM units use Ltec low noise Caps on them which have a bad reputation.
    -Low profile RAM will fit, no worries
    -I would get more elegant and quiet solution for Case, such as NZXT H440 or Fractal Design Define R4

    Instead of AXi get AX, they are made by SeaSonic, much better quality

  4. once again thanks for the response, i'll add that to my list.

    So about expanding later on, would i be good to go with another gpu later on?

    also what would be worth upgrading later on?

  5. Yes, you can install another GPU later on. But with single GTX780Ti you are already on the top, so i don't think it will be necessary to install another GTX 780Ti.
    As far as other upgrades go, i would say that i7 4930k will surely serve your needs for at least 2-3 years or maybe more. I can't be certain what the future holds for upcoming CPUs, GPUs and other hardware.
    Hope this helps.
