Tags: GPUs Nvidia CPUs Systems Intel Last response: May 24, 2014 11:57 AM in Systems Share hayden_s May 24, 2014 11:38:34 AM I know the gpus and cpus don't change drastically every year but is it worth waiting a couple months (from now) for the next gen of each company in cpus and gpus?

Something is always coming that makes your build obsolete. This is why I prefer to recommend mid-range builds over high end. Your build selection is good and well balanced except the PSU is way overkill. You could get away with a good 550W unit.

Regardless, I would build using a more modern Z97 based motherboard. On your build, 120gb for the ssd is starting to look a bit small; can you do 240gb? Perhaps defer on the hard drive until you need bulk storage space. I don't like liquid coolers when a decent air cooler will do the job equally well and be quieter and more reliable in the process.
