Critique First Time Builder's $1,500 Video/Gaming/Office Computer

Although it's never had a problem, I've outgrown my 9 year old Dell (long ago.) Since Dell quit making the XPS Studio 9100 they don't make a computer I'd want to buy. In fact, I can't find a pre-built unit anywhere that I'd want to buy. So build it, I must.

Here it is. Please critique it and tell me if there are any conflicting parts or other potential pitfalls or problem areas.

Approximate Purchase Date: Before March 15th

Budget Range: $1,500 after rebates

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Business applications (MS Office, Peachtree accounting), video editing, gaming, photo editing

Parts Not Required: Speakers

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg.com, microcenter.com (have Microcenter store in my area.), amazon.com

Country: U.S.A.

Parts Preferences: Intel CPU, Radeon graphics card

Overclocking: Probably

SLI or Crossfire: Maybe

Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080

Additional Comments: First time builder. Want to future proof as much as possible. Can’t stand slow loading programs, hence the SSD. Might want to add TV tuner card later.

  8. Wow, this board moves fast.

    The reason I selected the i7 CPU was because I will be doing video editing, mostly of stuff that I shoot myself. I don't think it will rise to the quality of Premiere Pro software though. Also I don't want buyer's remorse as in, "I coulda had an i7!"

    I went with Radeon because I've had bad luck with nVidea's in the past (parents and friends computers)

    Case was selected on good reviews and smaller width (computer will be on floor under my desk.) Also I like the streamlined looks. Otherwise I was thinking Corsair 400R.

    PSU was selected in case I wanted to go Crossfire in the future. And I want modular so I don't have leftover cables clogging up the case. I ran a power supply requirement worksheet somewhere on the web and it said I would need 630 watts with two graphics cards so I simply went with the 750 watt unit.


    QuietPC: You mentioned low profile RAM. Will I need that with the CPU cooler? (Good point on Windows transferability, thanks, something to mull over.)

    I never go with the high rise heat spreaders just in case. Each mobo is differnet so the placement of the ram slots, whether there are 2 or 4 and whether you will use 2 or 4 make a difference. Its more notiecable on mico-atm mobo's but I just don't take the chance. Besides, people tend to buy the tall spreaders because they look cool but inside the case they are never seen
  10. Space limited...hmm You should make space for at least 27" monitor. You would love it.
    If it helps I cut the top of my desk for my 30" lol
    Good setup but I would probably go with ASUS or Gigabyte motherboard. Also for now 8 gigs of DDR3 is more than enough actually 4Gb will be more than enough for your needs.
    You can always get more
  11. If video editing is a significant part of your usage, then yes I would get a HT enabled CPU. But, if ya willing to pay $100 more for the 2600k over the 2500k, I really can't see not spending an additional $40 for the 2700k. So ..... if gaming's the thing, that determines the pick, get the 2500k ...... if it's video editing, then it's the 2700k....the 2600k really doesn't "have a place anymore" with current pricing.

    In a $1,000 - 1,200 build, I'd use the Hyper 212 ..... a $1,500 build warrants something better and for that extra 5-7C I'd recommend the Hyper 612 PWM or Scythe Mugen 3.... at $45-50.

    Dump the tall toothy heat sinks whose only cooling function is to "look cool"..... not to mention that they hit the Hyper 212 and most other large 3rd party heat sinks. Again, video editing eats up RAM quite fast and you will definitely "feel" the difference.....in gaming, not so much.

    No CUDA kinda kills the ATI option for most video editing enthusiasts:

    For me, especially with video editing on the table, the lack of a front USB case port kills the CM690.

    The 750 watter is fine for two stock 560's / 69xx / 79xx cards .... if more than moderately overlclocking the CPU and 2 GFX tho, I'd want 850 for voltage stability.

    Hmmm.. the i7-2700K is only $299 at microcenter.com, or $20 more than the 2600K. Might have to change my plan here.

    Consider the tall toothy heat sinks to be dumped. Low profile is in.

    I'm kind of set on a separate SSD. I agree with your philosophy on buy one of those brands on sale. Another consideration for me is the newegg feedback ratings. I look at those units with a lot of reviews, those units with the highest overall rating AND the fewest percentage of 1 star rating, which is typically DOA units.

    That means Asus, Gigabyte or MSI, correct? Any suggestions in the $175-$180 range?

    That's a nice case, I like the firewire connection up front for my legacy video cam connection and it's a bit smaller (thinner) than the CM690-II, but it's kind of spendy. There is a new style front header for the 690-II that has USB 3.0

    OK, I found the site where I plugged in my build and it spits out a recommended wattage for a PSU.

    Just for yuks, if I put in 2 Radeon 6870 cards, overclock a i7-2700K CPU, an SSD ,an HDD, put in a couple more fans, a fan controller, throw a non-graphics device in a PCI slot, add a TV tuner, I only get a need for 578 watts.

    http://extreme.outervision.com/PSUEngine

    Interesting that the 2700K CPU uses 20 watts less than the 2600K CPU.
  15. I would get 2 sets of 2x4GB at 1600 for 35-40 each, instead of a 4x4GB kit for 90 bucks... easy savings there. Other than that, I agree to either get the 2700k or the 2500k.

    Take those wattage calculators with a grain of salt. For dual 6870's you want a 650w psu. For dual monitors you want a 2GB card for the extra V-RAM. And lose the 2700K. If you want hyper threading save yourself a few dollars and go with the 2600K and bump it up. The 2700K is a hose job.

    I would get 2 sets of 2x4GB at 1600 for 35-40 each, instead of a 4x4GB kit for 90 bucks... easy savings there. Other than that, I agree to either get the 2700k or the 2500k.



    I don't see how.

    Corsair Vengeance 2 X 4 GB per set = $49.99; Two sets = $99.98
    Corsair Vengeance 4 X 4 GB per set = $94.99;

    G.Skill Ares 2 X 4 GB per set = $44.99; Two sets = $89.98
    G.Skill Ares 4 X 4 GB per set = $88.99

    Yeah, I think 650w would be the starting point. So, assuming a very efficient power supply, i.e. Corsair Professional or Seasonic X do I need 750w or 650w?

    I won't be using 2 monitors unless I get a new office desk setup. LOL.

    +1

    I don't see the need to spend $40 more on the CPU for +100Mhz, just overclock it yourself and save $40.
