Hey guys I am a really new when it comes to building a desktop, so please bear with me. I have been looking around at some prebuilt desktops and they all seem to be lacking in computer graphics and performance and so I have decided I want to build my own. Mainly, I am going to be using this computer to play games like Starcraft 2 and Diablo 3 and would like to run these games on ultra graphic setting without any fps lag. Also the ability to easily multi-task would be an added bonus as well because I am a student and I will have some online classes to take care of in the near future. I have put together a build from people who have recommended a lot of these parts and I was wondering if I could get some feedback on how good it will run games on maxed graphics. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Also is it easy to build a computer, I have heard some different things about it. Thanks!
If your not going to crossfire that card down the road, then i'd go with a 550watt or 650 PSU. With that build i believe its more then capable of playing SC2 and DB3 maxed on Ultra. Its a nice build, I'm sure some other people will point you to the right direction. As far as the build that looks great minus the PSU whether you crossfire or not. Good luck.
unless you have plans to run your GPU in SLI, 600-650W is more than enough. getting a cheaper 80 plus Bronze PSU is an option as well.
it is KINDA easy building a PC, though it is highly recommended that you read the manual slowly all the way through. when in doubt, send the parts in to be build by a trusted third party for a price.
also check the motherboard manufacturer's website for your motherboard's compatibility with the RAM model you chose. yes, that is, and can actually be a problem.
you may or may not experience some hiccups so expect to RMA some of the parts at the very worst, the forum being a testament to that. if you're lucky, you may not need to troubleshoot anything and everything runs fine at first boot.
All I'd change is the Mobo to ASRock z77 Extreme4. I doubt he'll need the extra stuff from the GA-Z77X-UD3H. + the ASRock has an intergrated LAN chipset already.
Thanks however as much hype as that mobo gets i don't think i would sleep well at night without letting OP know Asrock try to skimp on this mobo a bit to much i don't respect that or want to help encourage them to think it's o.k. to pull bs like they did with the Extreme4 in the future it slips outside of typical ATX specifications. It’s 3cm thinner than a standard ATX motherboard and as a result may lack secure mounting on the far side since this isn’t a common size, which also means you should be very careful when plugging in the 24-pin ATX motherboard power – as the motherboard may flex.
