New Gaming Computer - Build in Progress - Need Help!
Im looking to create a good gaming computer that can run most games with max graphics settings. Take a look at what ive selected so far, and let me know what you guys think needs to be changed or is missing.
Why the i7 4790? Why not the k? Or the i5 4690k?
If you stick with the non k, you won't need a custom cooler.
Try ASRock Z97 or Asus Z97-A per http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/mainstream-gaming-z97-motherboard,3824.html
The ram is too expensive. Just get 2 x 4gb 1.5v, cl9 1866 ram
NEVER get a case with a power supply. Especially Raidmax. Case might be OK. But not the psu.
Get a good 500+W psu from tiers 1, 2a or 2b of http://www.tomshardware.com/answers/id-1804779/power-supply-unit-tier-list.html eg Seasonic 520, XFX 550 or Antec HCG 520M

Ok man ill look into that, thanks. Do you think that the motherboard is good enough? and do i need a sound card?
The Mobo is very good.. As for the sound card, you wont need it
1.What's the point of getting a 4790 rather than a 4690k/4670k ?
2.What's th point of getting a DDR3-2400 memory? 1866/2133 is enough and deliver the same gaming performance.
3.2TB HDD along with that SSD? That's a wastage of money.
4.Case that includes a PSU and that too from rosewill and you are thinking it pairing with the gtx760??
5.No O.S ?
I will leave 250$ for the monitor and other accessories and do the build:
