  1. Would a Z87 + i5-4670k and a r9 290 be out of the question for the 1440p build? See no need for the i7, and you could probably go cheaper (and better quality) in your PSU. If I recall, OCZ has stopped making PSUs; don't remember if their warranty/customer support is staying, though.
  2. oh thanks for the heads up ocz is selling psu online in my country,so if they don't manufacturer their psu anymore i will buy seasonic's psu.

    nah that asus monitor cost as much as 780 gtx like **edit 600$ so even if i go for 4670k difference would be of less than of 80$ so no point
  3. i think you should look up reviews and benchmarks on what systems can achieve what on a 1440p monitor.
    also depends what settings you expect to play games at.

    some of hte most demanding games, with a 280x you'll be playing on medium... it'll take two 280x's to play on ultra.
  4. i have gone through techspot.com , in their benchmarks 280x was able to maintain 35+ fps on maximum setting in most of the games last year like thief, bf4 (avg around 40fps), only game that punished 280x on ultra was crysis 3 just pulling 22 fps.
  5. i can go for asrock b85m motherboard by changing my psu from seasonic 650w to corsair 650w vp. b85 supports crossfire i can put another 280x later around Christmas.

    I would go with the 2nd build personally. However since the other build you have has a ASUS panel what about the PB238Q its the little brother to the 27 inch and is a solid panel. I use it on a daily basis :)

    I'd also go down to a 4670k if you aren't doing anything production wise in terms of professional work just gaming stick to your high end i5's.
  7. @big shooter , yeah man i went with the 2nd build bought those parts from the store , i replaced 4770 with xeon e3 1230v3 and used that money to buy nice 24" benq xl 120hz 3d monitor . i know i 4670k will be enough but i m not much of a overclocker also overclocking will cost me more z87 quality motherboard, liquid cooler nice air flow cabinet etc :)

    That isn't a half bad way to go. I can understand going with the Xeon chip a good replacement if you aren't concerned with overclocking.

    Benq does make some pretty boss 3d panels. The only reason why I'm not to hot on the 3d panels is because they are still TN panels however still very high quality panels with BenQ so you did fine there.
