New pc build

Hi i was wondering what you guys thought of this build. This machine will be used mainly for gaming. I know it might be a little overkill but thats how i like it. I also would like to do a little overclocking but i am a little afraid of watercooling since i have never done it b4. And thats y i chose the v10 aircooler. I know it needs the bracket to fit the lga2011 socket. I also was wondering if i would have any height clearance issues with the ram i have chosen. Any advice would be appreciated. Well here is the list

  1. Whats your budget man? and yea that build will destroy anything. and why are you getting 6gb 7970?
  2. This topic has been moved from the section CPU & Components to section Systems by Proximon
  3. I would go for the Noctua NH-D14 over watercooling to be honest.

    Also, you don't need the 6GB card unless you are running like a zillion monitors.

    Also, even if this is overkill, 1200W is way way too much. Just go for like 800 or 900.
  4. well i was doing the 6gb card cause i plan on doing 3 monitors and last i read this was a good card to get and as for the psu i was over doing it cause of the issue i had with my current set up which made me go through 3 psu's before i got a 650 watt corsair psu. and for the cpu cooler would there be ram clearance issues with the Noctua NH-D14. i have read the v10 has some issues with certain ram sticks. and to answer budget issue its a little over $2300
  5. It's way more than overkill, mate. For close to $1000, you're getting about 10% better performance in games than if you spend $350 for an i5 and a motherboard. Since basically no games are CPU bottlenecked with an i5, this is a complete waste of money that you could use on a second graphics card that WOULD actually give you better performance.

    Or.... build a computer that'll max out any current game and play most future ones on high, and save your money to do it again a while later. Instead of a very very expensive, obsolete computer nobody wants in five years, you're always keeping up with the tech.
