    I'd get a 1440P monitor. Agree with you on the rest.

    I'd get a Z97 motherboard if you can. I'm a little unsure if that Z87 board will be compatible with a DC processor. I've read that some Z87 boards are compatible with DC processors through a BIOS update though.


    And I'd just get the one video card for now and if you must get a second, wait till the 800 series comes out and judge whether it is worth getting another 780ti (or non-ti if you go for a normal gtx780 which personally I think would be more ideal for your build) for cheap or just going for an upgrade to an 800 series card and sell the 780ti. Yeh and as phenom said I wouldn't go for anything below 24". Personally I think if you go below 24" you'll spoil your gaming experience.

    Gold PSUs are the sweet spot for pricing now at this juncture and are middle of the road when it comes to efficiency - being that titanium & platinum are better, silver & bronze are worse.

    Also I'd get a better case than what you've chosen. It doesn't make sense to me that one would have over a $2000 build in a $50 case.

    For FHD 60hz display you can buy only one 780ti, get a man`s "SWIFT PG278Q features a 27-inch WQHD (2560 x 1440) resolution, fast 120+ Hz refresh rate, 1ms response time, full range ergonomic adjustments, ASUS GamePlus and NVIDIA® G-SYNC™ technologies that are designed to deliver the ultimate gaming experience. ", or FHD but 144hz display+ g-sync, its necessary for best exp, big difference. WD purple for a video storage purposes, choose WD black HDD. Lack of SSD memory , get bigger one, 250gb at least, you can stick with 8 gb RAM but for gaming need better ssd, some kingston hyperx or samsung 840 evo - good p/p.

    Ok I had some free time and this is what I came up with;
    http://pcpartpicker.com/p/fV4XYJ

    Feel free to add more ram. If you choose to go with 16GB, I'd go for a 2X8gb setup rather than a 4X4gb setup purely for upgradeability options and also clearance for cpu coolers.

    Your CPU cooler is fine but if you want to do some heavy overclocking the one I've chosen in that build is great or you can go for an AIO liquid cooler like a Corsair H90 or something. Also feel free to change the case around, it just seemed weird you choosing a $50 cheap ass case for a build worth over $2000.

    Corsair RM series for power supplies seem really nice at the moment, great price/performance and super quiet too. Also I wouldn't touch coolermaster case fans. The ones I've worked with before die within 6 months and a pretty noisy.

    Obviously feel free to add another graphics card if you want a second one. Although I really like Gigabyte cards (and I've had good experiences with them), they seem to have had a decline in quality in recent times hence why I chose an EVGA card in that build.

    As far as monitors go, Benq's XL2420TE has had AMAZING reviews - just about everyone seems to love them (for a 3D gaming monitor at least). PCpartspicker didn't have the "TE" model so I've chosen the next best. Try and get the TE model if you can though.

    I've also changed your Z87 board to a Z97 board because of being the newer chipset.

    And don't forget to include windows too in the price.

    Best be wait until the games are out as you never know they might screw them up or end up not being so demanding.. Better still wait until newegg sales are going on around November early December time.

    he be better of waiting until the 20nm shit comes out lol.

    well that computer was bought on 2005, I thought that I should buy a new one but no I wasn't expert and I didnt spend a lot of my time on computer so I didnt bother my self to buy or upgrade it, I have bought better CPU and Video card and extra ram so it was fine i think in 2008 it was fine and until mid 2012 I started to play games so I thought I should buy new computer but it will take 70%-90% of my time because I play a lot therefore i wont be able to study so I think now its really really old I should buy a new one its bios last update was on 2012 :(

    HEY HEY I have the most oldest PC and my brother have better PC
    i7 3770 @ 3.40GHz
    1080P monitor :D
    GeForce GTX 670

    so I like the 1080P but I dont know if any bigger monitor will be big for me I sit on 30-50CM away from my monitor

    G-sync>144hz>1ms GTG response time>r. higher than 1080p>ips displays(60-75hz, big delay). If you mostly play online games, better 1080p because online games aimed on all people and on most common resolution.

    +1 for the monitors - any of them should be just fine

    apart from that as a newb to this conversation I dont mean to be judgy, but shouldn't you list our your priorities? You talk about a rig, watercooling, LED fans etc.

    I'd first look at allocating a reasonable budget for your main rig, and think of watecooling later (especially if you're not going to be OCing anytime soon).

    yep i did have a look at the specs and as others have said, looks good to go :)

    If you are thinking of watercooling solely to avoid dust, Im afraid it wouldnt make much of a difference as you will still have dust build up around the radiator, unless you do simple cleanups periodically
