Hello,
I would need an advice on the following PC build:
CPU: Intel i7-3930K
GPU: MSI GTX 780
RAM: corsair vegance 16gb (2x8)
MOBO: Asus Z87 PRO LGA
PSU:Corsair CX series 750 Watt
I'd also like to know if these parts fit into the Cooler Master HAF X case...
Thank you

Your motherboard and CPU are not compatible. Your CPU is LGA 2011 (X79) and you motherboard is LGA 1150 (z87).

That build deserves a better power supply. I'd recommend at least a 650W model from XFX, Antec, Seasonic, or Corsair (TX, HX, and AX series only).

I agree. Also, if you are going to be spending GTX780 level money, why not get an i7 4770k cpu? It would work great with that motherboard.

What about the Intel i7-4930K? It should perform better.

Depends on what you're doing with the PC. If you're not doing heavy editing and/or rendering all the time, the 4770k is more than enough.

The 4930k still needs an LGA 2011 motherboard though.
