I'm trying to put a PC together over the next couple weeks. I've already bought some parts but I'm holding out on others for better prices. I'm working on 3D modeling and some photo editing and possibly video editing as well. Render times and multitasking some pretty intensive programs is key. I'm looking at somewhere between $1500 to $1800.
So here are the parts I've already bought:
Case - Rosewell Thor 2 - $130
PSU - Corsair HX850 Modular - $160
SSD - Samsung 840 120GB - $95
RAM - G.Skill Trident X 2x8GB - $118
OS - Windows 7 OEM - $85
Not looking at overclocking or SLI (yet). Also I'm planning to upgrade later, because I have a price limit right now. So I'm looking for a base system that can also kick some ass and have plenty of options to upgrade.
Mainly looking for suggestions on where I can cut some corners but not at a loss of performance, i.e. Am I buying too much RAM or should I get a different brand. Also looking for incompatibility concerns. I think I did well matching up all the parts but if I missed something let me know.
Well if you are not looking to overcloxk, why spend $110 on the h100i? Since you already bought tje psu I cant say much, but that is a waste of 850W, you arent going to SLI and oc and you are using gtx 660ti. You could have save around $80 and could have use the saved $190 to buy the 3930k.Buy the 2x8gb ram since you said intensive multitasking.
