I just finished my new build for a gaming computer around $1400.
I saw that most of my components have been chosen or advised in other threads, but as everyone, before I order the parts this week, I would like your inputs or thoughts on this build to be sure I'm not missing something.
Also, in a close future, I would like to add an extra gpu in crossfire probably the same card, that's why I tried to pick components (especially a 750 W PSU) that should allow that - let me know if I'm wrong. In the meantime, Do you think a 750W is too much with only 1 GPU ?
For the memory I will stick to the cheapest one.
For the SSD, I finally decided to pick the samsung even if I have to pay a little more.
For the PSU, I was thinking to switch to a SeaSonic - Let me know what you think: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
For the monitor, I didn't want to spend a lot so I don't know if I should just pick a cheap ASUS VS248H-P Black 24. But I kind of like the new Asus VG248QE so for the moment I have picked it even though I'm not sure it worth it. Let me know what you guys think about that. I will probably buy a second IPS monitor in a year, that's why I don't want to spend too much but at the same time I don't want to have a bad monitor with a 7950...
I still need to chose cheap speakers, if someone have any thought.
For the moment, I am almost $300 over budget but when I look at my build I'm not sure where I can save: probably a cheaper PSU (but I will lost the Modular feature) or pick the 7870 XT.
