Been planning this build for a while, and now need final reviews and opinions.
I have a few of these parts thanks to some deals, and a shell shocker, but I've opened nothing and am within the return policy.
I am trying to stay within the 1,500 range and this build comes out to about 1,300.
I plan to try to overclock (never done it before) and will mostly use this computer to game and to do photoshop (massive files).
Do you already have that video card? You also didn't state what you got as a shell shocker so I don't know the price of those nor the other stuff you also have. Do you need a OS or monitor?
I kept the case, assuming you like the design, but there are good options with a lower price. Since you have an ssd, the 2tb hdd will only be for storage so I put a cheaper one. You don't need 850w so I changed to a 650w. The ram is currently 25% off so I put 2kits of those. You said yes to OC so I changed to the "K" version. You put no to sli/cf so I changed to a lower priced mobo.
Thanks a lot,
Actually i got the 16gb of ram and the video card already... I can return the ram if its bad for this build or it doesn't work out. I haven't opened it.
Do you really think I only need 650W? It seems too little for the amount of stuff I am going to put into this computer.
You are right. The HD is only for storage, thank you for the samsung link, gonna be picking that one up!
Now while I said no to SLI, I don't want to save 40 dollars or so to lose that option.
Is that the only thing that I am losing when I go with your motherboard?
The parts you have are good if you got them for a good price. You just didn't say what you already had and what price. If they are better prices than the current deals then keep them. Sli/cf is a good option to have just in case you want to later and can definitely fit in your budget.
