Hey guys, i've been looking around to build myself a new system, i'm a software developer so use my computer extensively for all kinds of things (Not so great at the hardware side of things though ) so i need a fairly powerful computer, however i'm hoping all you guys with your expert knowledge can trim the fat on this build a bit to shave off some money on un-needed things. (For instance I realise the PSU is robably WAAAAY too high)
I'm planning on using a small 64GB SSD for the OS and critical apps, and a 3TB green drive for data storage (Have these already)
Also any recommendations on a GPU would be good Doesn't need to be too powerful, however i do tinker with direct X and openGL from time to time, so it needs to be able to process games at a playable level (but graphic quality etc is really not that important - just speed!)
Any help would be fantastic And I really am open to any and all suggestions - even if it means a rethink of the entire system
I think you can cut out the i7-2700k and get a 2600k. The 2700k was just released and is still overpriced. Also, 1200w seems like WAY too much. I'm not a computer super genius, but I do know quite a bit. Finally, you have a lot of top of the line thing you're buying. I'm wondering if you really need them. What RAM do you have?
