I’m looking to replace my q6600 combined with the geforce 8600 gts which I’ve had for several years now.
I’ve looked up various components from various suppliers and was wondering if this would be any good to last me 2 to 4 years:
intel 4670K (161.99)
Asus Z97-A (105.50)
G.Skill TridentX series 16GB (8GBx2) DDR3 1600MHz Memory (121.65)
Refurbished Corsair Hydro H100i cpu cooler (44.99)
PSU crosair CS750M (71.17)
Aerocool VS-92 Black ATX for the H100i watercooling (36.30)
crucial 240GB M500 (79.99)
I'm debating whether to get the
powercolor r9 290 pcs 4gb (269.99)
SAPPHIRE Radeon R9 280X Dual-X OC 3GB GDDR5 for 169.99
The asrock MB sounds good, i'm not sure why you would drop from a 750W psu to a 650 PSU though?
I've not mentioned this before but I choose for a higher psu to be able to crosfire the gpu in future. PC partpicker calculated that the total watts consumed for 2x r9 290 cards in this system is 678 watts. Should I still go for a better one as this one is already 80+ gold rated?
I had a look at the 4690k before but didn't think is worth the money for 0.1ghz faster compared to the 4670k. I've noticed that the difference is only 9 pounds now so might go for the 4690k
A friend of mine told me that I should stick to the stock cooler as I'm probably not going to OC. This way I could save some money as it would be unnecessary.
I'm not sure yet but might want to game on 3 screens in the near future. Would 16gb of ram still be too much then?
