Wow, that looks like a nice computer. May I ask what the primary use (and any other uses) you intend it for?


I can see that one of the uses will most certainly be gaming. I was just wondering if you are planning on video editing or photography etc. as well.

Hey, just wanted to say good looking build! It looks to be very powerful all round. If you're going for extreme performance may I suggest that instead of getting one 256gb ssd that you get two 128gb ssd's and run them in raid zero? This will increase performance even more and will help more than a single ssd. Also, about the graphics cards I recently built a new build aswell. I was originally going to use two 770's in Ali but I decided on using one 780ti. This will help with future proofing your system and at the moment the 780ti will handle anything you throw at it. It you're using more than 2 monitors though then the 770's would be more useful. Other than those two things though I think it looks great and will be a very enjoyable machine for whatever you use it for!

raid 0 on 2 ssds wont give you any performance increase. ssds are already extremely fast, the raid 0 will just increase the odds of one failing (which is extremely low already with an ssd)

i would suggest a different psu, the rm series from corsair isnt that great. any psu from xfx, seasonic, antec, corsair(not rm, cx or cs line) will be great.

finally, for the parts list, you have to copy the permalink, not the url. the permalink is at the top of your list
