Hey guys, I've taken on the task of building my first desktop, and I've been given quite a generous budget. I need some tips on specifically the CPU and mobo options that I have. Right now what I'm thinking is:
Asus MAXIMUS VI Formula
Corsair Vengeance 2x8gb ddr3-2133
2 x Samsung 840 evo 250gb ssd
EVGA GeForce GTX 780 Ti
NZXT Phantom 410
corsair 120mm quiet edition fan and a 140mm one too
and I've already got the power supply and optical drive
Ill be using it for heavy gaming, bf4, hopefully titanfall, and then pretty much everyday use with some demanding CAD and pic editing software etc...
I've heard from a friend that the haswell cpu's are sort of known to fail at gaming applications. And he recommended the i7-4930k ivy bridge. The asus vi formula is a lga 1150 mobo and the haswell also. That would mean if i wanted the i7-4930k i would have to change the mobo to a lga 2011 one. Do you guys think that the more expensive processor and then changing the mobo is worth it? Some reviews i read said the haswell is perfectly capable, and sometimes not even necessary, for gaming.
Lastly, the RAM I picked runs at 2133, and is 1.5v. Is this alright? because Ive heard some say It'll run hot and I should just get some 1866 ones.
