Will this build work?

hello, i'm new in computer gaming and i would like to build my own computer. It all had to be as cheap as possible(because i'm a student and will pay 100%), but ofcourse the computer has to last for a while.

so i did a lot of research, and i finally came up with this build:

1) GRAPICS CARD:2x Gigabyte NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770 (PCI-e, 2GB GDDR5, 2x DVI, HDMI, DP, 1 GPU)

2) PROCESOR: Intel Core i7-3770 third generation (3,4GHz, L3-Cache, Sockel LGA 1155, 77W TDP)

3) MOTHERBOARD: Gigabyte GA-Z77X-D3H Mainboard Sockel 1155 (ATX, Intel Z77, 3x PCI-e 3.0, 4x DDR3, 2x SATA III, 6x USB 3.0, DVI, HDMI, VGA)

4) CASE: Corsair Carbide 300R

5) POWERSUPPLY: Corsair CX Series 750Watt

6) COOLING: 3x fans of 140mm + Thermaltake Water 2.0 Pro

7) HARD DRIVE: samsung HD154UI SATA disk drive (this comes from my original pc, so i won't have to buy this)

8) MEMORY: 16GB DDR3 (also, i already have this)

Now my question, is this build alright and will it work ? Do you have any remarks? Have you any tips
i could use and did i forgot somethings?

many thanks !

greetings Arno!

  1. Best answer
    PSU is not recommended . cx series uses cheap capacitors . go for better option like xfx xtr 650 or if have budget so ax760i...
    any specific reason to go for 1155. . why not 1150
  2. Why are you wanting to do dual 770s instead of a single 780 Ti? And if you're trying to save some money, just get an i5 and a cheaper Z87 board? Going the single 780 Ti and i5 will be maxing out everything at 1080p for a long time, and be cheaper, use less power, be quieter, and be cooler.
  3. better go with haswell and if you dont plan to o/c then 4770 paired with h87 should be fine or then 4770k with Z87 for such cpu cooler to make sence. make that corsair 750w an xfx and you are good to go! also as already suggested better go with single gpu config like 780ti and you can also make the psu an 650w one!(and avoid any stattering issues due to sli)
  4. thanks everybody ! verry helpfull :D!
