Hi all,

I'm about to pull the trigger on the parts to build my first PC, and wanted to get your feedback if possible.
It will be used for 3d / motion graphics, & graphic design.

I do plan to over clock the CPU.

Please let me know if you'de change anything, and if I'm missing any parts. Any and all feedback is greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance, gents!

something to take note of

-the keyboard isnt on sale at the moment. it sometimes sells for 59.99 after MIR at newegg
-you are better off with a quadro card if you are doing 3d work. also take note that nvidia is coming out with new workstation cards at the end of the year which are a lot faster
-the monitor is suited for professional use so that would be a better choice. also, the monitor usually sells for 229.99 after MIR but not on sale this week

Thanks guys.
BigTroll, Ill look at the quadro, but alot of the other changes you picked seem arbitrary. Can you elaborate on the case/keyboard changes, etc?

Thanks guys!

- the keyboard is mechanical therefore much better for typing and gaming. they dont feel cheap
-the ram because its cheap
-the tpc and the d14 are about the same to me. whichever you want. just the tpc is a bit louder and is 20 bucks cheaper. either one is good
-seagate drives and WD drives are about the same to me. had better experience with seagate
-the p9x79 pro board offers the same features as the sabertooth if not more and is cheaper
-the case because its dam cheap right now and is a quiet case. favourite case of all time.
