Hi there community, I am buying some new computer parts. I have limited experience but prefer to buy something that will last over time by spend a little more $. I have picked out some parts listed below and was wondering if I could get advice on three things.
1. will these parts all work together, fit on motherboard, fit in case, have enough power etc, is it sufficient cooling...
2. did i pick any bad parts/bad company manufacturer or parts that can be beaten by a competitor in performance for roughly similar price or less?
3. is any parts i missed?
System Usage from Most to Least Important:
i play lot of computer game at semi professional level and i like to stream them through twitch tv without any performance drop
Case: Expensive but good.
UPS: Not necessary, but not a bad idea.
PSU: Go with a Corsair TX 750W
RAM: 16GB would be more than enough. 2x8GB DDR3 1600MHz
MOBO: Why not go with Z77 and get a 3770k?
CPU: Switch to 3770k to save a lot of money
GPU: Best you can get, but either get 3x1080p monitors or a 2560x1600. It will be a waste to game on one 1080P monitor.
HDD: Slow but a lot of space
Cooling: With the money saved from switching to Z77 why not do a custom water loop?
The reason I said 3770k over the 3970x is the difference of ~$650. Also, the z77 mobo will be cheaper. You could take this extra money and put it towards a better monitor. I just got a 2560x1440 monitor and highly recommend it. You will notice no difference in gaming between the 3770k and 3970x. If you don't feel comfortable build a water loop then just get a good air cooler like a noctua.
In gaming there is virtually no difference between 1333 MHz and 2133 MHz besides price. 1600 and 1333 cost pretty much the same so might as well get 1600. Did you change your mind on the monitor situation?
things have gone bad in the past when i tried to change the ram, install an ssd and change the cpu fan... wow it ended bad... i broke clips, destroyed the ram-cause i was following an online tutorial that was running on the PC that i was changing the ram in... :-/ bent pins... Heh =.=''
