Looking for an opinion on a new gaming PC I'm building.

Hello, my last PC's motherboard crashed on me, so I took this as a chance to build a completely new one, as the last one was pretty old. (The monitor, keyboard, and mouse were also old so I'm replacing those as well.) I would just like for an opinion on if my build would work well and if there is anything I could do better.

I'm new to PC building as my last one was just a prebuilt, so be gentle. My budget is $1700 but I'm alright with going over a little, but only a little. Thanks in advance.

Thats nice build you have built there. But here are some changes i can suggest:

You can decide between the LED, you can go with yours or the one i suggest. It's up to you as the only major difference other than size, inbuilt accessories is of Pixel pitch, Asus VS228H-P has better than Asus VS247H-P. And you won't find Motherboard at that price range better than Asus's Maximus VI Hero. About Graphics card, Asus is best in temps and runs silent than almost all other gtx 770 gpus. Power Supply, you will be more than enough with 750watts if you won't sli in future and RM series is going to provide more than enough performance for your gaming build. SSD Samsung 840 Evo will be all you will need because it also uses MLC NAND like 840 Pro than just 840 which uses TLC.
Good luck :)

I think that if you check again that you'll find that the Evo uses TLC nand, not MLC.

Just look at this website: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
I will make sure again by searching other areas too. Thanks for giving your opinion :)

I believe that the info posted on the Newegg site is in error.

Check this info from Tom's review of the Evo:

Quote:
Samsung 840 EVO
120 GB
250 GB
500 GB
750 GB
1 TB
MSRP
$110
$190
$370
$530
$650
Controller
400 MHz Samsung MEX, three-core ARM Cortex-R4
NAND
19 nm Samsung Toggle-mode NAND (400 Mb/s), three-bit-per-cell
End Quote.

"three-bit-per-cell" = Triple Level Cell (TLC) nand.

Thanks,

Yogi

thanks for your time, and the correction. I looked for other resources now it said it is TLC. Thanks again.

If you are looking to buy an affordable PC, I would suggest buying Invincible series by My Extreme Gaming PC. They are just awesome. I bought one through Snapdeal and their performance are out of the world. Real value for money. It cost me around $1000 but a great rig for the price we pay. I use them mostly for playing games and I do not switch off the system for a week continuously for more than 8 hrs per day and believe me there is no noise.
