    As in the topic I want new PC I have been searching for like 1-2 weeks I want new parts so it will last longer and can be upgradable :D but look at the price as well
    I have got almost everything but there is 3 thing that I couldn't decide so what should I pick
    here is the link to what I have build but its not completed yet so advice me about what should I change in mu build or adding anything I have missed and choose from the choice that I have given u and if there is better tell me :D My Computer Build

    1- Video card
    I have had 3 choice I want GTX 690 and after years it become weak ill put another GTX 690 by SLI so its great thing I think ill get boos up to 70%-90% right ? :D or I will use one of the blew :|
    A- GeForce GTX 690 (I want this)
    B- AMD Radeon™ HD 7990 (not really interst in it )
    C- GeForce GTX TITAN (its a bit less than GTX 690 so no not this )
    D- or I will wait for GTX 8** or something the new video card

    2- CPU Cooler
    I don't know what is good for Intel® Core™ i7-4790K ill boost it and maybe O.C later so idk what should I pick
    I don't have any experience in CPU coolers

    3- Power Supply Unite
    I would pick any thing but since I have GTX690 or I will use SLI/Crossfire I will need a good PSU(Power Supply Unite)
    and I don't have any experience in PSU(Power Supply Unite)

    About the Case
    if there is better case tell me and I don't want it to be very expensive so keep an eye on price as well

    SLI or Crossfire is simply you will use 2 or 3 or 4 Video card as the motherboard support it

    The poll should also have a 'none of the above' point, as I would +1 to the 780Ti as well.

    This.

    And if you are planning to run just a 24" inch monitor, likely at 1080/1200p you don't need multi GPUs. 650w-750w would be fine.

    Evga Supernova G2's are awesome PSUs.

    Also you don't need to keep spelling out what PSU is or any other sort of acronym when it comes to PC parts. We all know what they mean.

    HD 7990, R9 290X or 780 Ti the Titan and 690 are both overpriced in comparison to the first 3 cards I listed.
    BTW the HD7990 is the fastest if it stays cool.

    First of all where you are buying from? Not sure why you want a 690 at this time and date, and you won't get %90 scaling on Quad-SLi. That said, get a 780 or a 780 Ti like others mentioned. For the CPU cooler, look into the Swiftech H320/220 or the CM Eisberg/Glacer 240L. And you chose a very cheap case. For that type of setup I'd at least be looking at a 650D or something of that caliber.

    Another good couple of CPU coolers to consider is a Phanteks PHTC14PE, Noctua NH-D14, NH-D15, Thermalright Silverarrow, Cry Orig R1.

    Power Supply depends on what you end up picking, single card or two separate cards (or a doubled GPU card like a 690/7990).

    If you want overkill, SeaSonic X-SERIES X-1050 maybe?

    If you are only getting one card a 700 to 800 watt would be more than fine.

    Seriously dude, the answer to your question about the 780Ti can be found in every review on the internet. Simple answer. yes. Especially at 1080p.

    Have a read through this. http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/NVIDIA/GeForce_GTX_780_Ti/

    Id honestly get a 120hz monitor if you plan to pair a GPU like the 780Ti on a 1080p screen.

    Power Supply: Corsair, Seasonic, Antec, Enermax, Evga

    780Ti also gets my vote; for 1080p gaming it will last a looong time. Or you could wait a little for the 880 and get even more power.

    For cooling the CPU I think a Hyper 212 will be enough. Haswell isn't know for its OC potential.

    For the PSU: Silverstone, Seasonic and Corsair are my to go brands. You can pick any PSU from them and all will be of high quality. Corsair uses capacitors from second tier suppliers on their CX line so you might want to skip those but they all come with a 3 year warranty.

    From Antec, High Current and Earthwatts models are good.

    From Coolermaster, Silent Pro and V models are good. Avoid the Elite, Extreme and GS models.

    I can't comment on other brands.

    The GTX690 is used, that is why its cheaper. Id still get the 780Ti, the 690 is just 2 GTX680s that are underclocked a bit on one PCB.

    Additionally the 690 only has 2 GB of actual vram, so it might be fast but eventually it will be a limiting factor for games with big texture files. Each GPU on the 690's circuit board has 2GB, for 4 GB total. The VGA ram is not additive, its mirrored across the two GPUs on the board.
    7990 is same thing but 3GB.

    The most hassle free experience is to buy a single GPU card like a 780TI.

    +1 for a 780, 780Ti. A single powerful gpu is the way to go and Titan is overpriced
    The 690 is essentially 2x 680's in SLI on one pcb. So you have to worry about SLI scaling efficiencies in every game you play and the gpus are clocked lower on 690 compared to 680. The 690 also costs more than a 780, 780Ti.
    I have a 780Ti and i game @ 1440P. It plays every game I've thrown at it with ultra settings and high fps.

    If price is a big issue you can always step back to 780, or even 770. Plenty of power for 1080p even with the future considered. Here's a good chart of the relative performance http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/MSI/R9_280X_Gaming_6_GB/24.html

    You haven't listed a motherboard you will be using, but if SLi is supported you can just grab another.

    As for CPU, it can be overclocked, max freq depends on skill and luck. Temps play a big part too, you might want to keep a close tab on that. I wouldn't recommend OC'ing the CPU if all you do is just playing games. Maybe in the future, but definitely not now.

    is this a good choice ? http://pcpartpicker.com/part/gigabyte-video-card-gvn78tghz3gd

    Yes. That Gigabyte card has the Windforce cooler and a nice factory OC.
    Make sure that your case has good airflow for this card though. That windforce cooler will dump a lot of heat inside your system. The Nvidia reference cooler won't.

    Ya about O.C is not now maybe after 3,6, or even 9 years :D. 4GHz and 8threads is too much for gaming but some other stuff it will be good and fast like video editing, Photoshop and I want thinks just run fast :D.

    OK now I think I have built my computer right ? I have missed anything just pls tell me here is the link to my build
    http://pcpartpicker.com/p/7hm6qs
    pls see the nots blow at the end of specs page and if you can fix it pls tell me how

    only one thing left PSU
    1- what is the difference between 80+ gold silver bronze Titanium and Platinum
    2- again what is your current PSU company
    3- if u have time go to http://pcpartpicker.com/parts/power-supply/#qq=1&W=850,1600 and pick one PSU for me :D

    1- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/80_Plus basically, Titanum>Platinum>Gold>Silver>Bronze. Most Platinum and Titanium PSUs are severely overpriced. Stick with Gold, the 2-4% difference in efficiency doesn't matter much.
    2- Seasonic, Silverstone and Corsair are my to go brands.
    3- Lots of good stuff there. Considering you might SLI in the future, I would go for the Corsair AX860, or the HX850 if there's no stock of the AX.

    Sounds like a lot of GPU performance is being wasted on such a low resolution and low hz monitor. You don't need 2 780Ti let alone, a single 780Ti all together for a 1080p screen. Maybe if you were going to run surround with 3 monitors it might make sense, but one. sounds like a waste. No matter what you get, hardware won't last forever, itll only last as long as it is able to play the games you want to play, and with respectable performance. Getting more of that specific piece of hardware (multi GPU) is not really the way to go about it IMO, and can cause unwanted problems as well. Its impossible to future proof computers.

    My recommendation for this would be to get a single GTX780 (non ti), power the system with an EVGA Supernova G2 750-850w PSU. I also don't recommend going anywhere below 24" for the monitor.
