Original Post:

Hi all! New to the forum, I was recommended by a friend to go here for advice on building my computer. This is my first time building a computer, and as a current computer science major, I think it's been long enough ;) I'd love to get some advice on parts to build, general guidelines. I've looked at some of the stickies on the site, but a lot of them seem to be outdated, so I decided just to post my own thread.

Below is a rough list of the things I'm looking for:

My budget is $2000-3000.

Must:
3 monitor support. So I can have ultimate productiveness when programming :D
It must be good at multitasking(chrome, visual studios, iTunes, mathematics all running at same time)
I want this to be a gaming and work computer. So I want to be able to do 3Dmodeling, gaming, heavy programming, ect.
I want a good graphics card for gaming. Maybe not the best, but 2nd-to-3rd best would be nice. Something I can use to play max graphics for most games.
I want a SSD so I can have fast boot and load times for programs.
I want a lot of ram(probably 32gb) in order to achieve good multitasking, gaming, ect.
Mechanical Keyboard and a nice gaming mouse are also requirements.

Nice to Have:
I would like this computer to be upgradable in the future, so this would most like factor into the motherboard I'd need to buy.
I am interested in overclocking my processor, but I'm unsure how risky that can be.
I don't really a lot of disk space(1 TB is good, 500GB is OK too) This can be a mixture of SSD and regular HD.

Cool:
A cool case would be nice, but is not necessary.
Water cooling would be "cool" (haha) also, but air cooling is fine.

Dont really care:
I don't know much about power supplies, so whatever works is good enough.
I don't need a fancy sound card.
Don't need any CD/DVD/BluRay drives.



To summarize: gaming, multitasking, 3 monitor support, SSD. Everything else is secondary.

Any help or advice would be appreciated. Thanks! :toast:

You defintly want an i7 3770k since it seems you would benefit from hyper threding and ofcourse a z77 board along with it also 16gb of ram.

I'm putting together a build for you. AMD cards are better at multi-monitor support as they can support up to 6 monitors with a single card.

Do you want to be able to overclock?

Overclocking would be nice. I don't know enough about it as of now, but I'd like to have the feature available for later when I read up on it

Do you already have the OS and K-Board + Mouse? or do you literally mean you need EVERYTHING?

EDIT: you want a case too :?

Upgradability ... Intel's going to be changing to another new socket soon (next year), so the CPU's upgradability is limited if you go Intel.

AMD "Might" stick with their socket as they always do though. I'm inclined to think Piledriver at this time.

Add the OS of your choice, whether Windows 7 or 8. I didn't suggest a case because alot of picking a case has to do with personal choice. Better you go look at cases, then come back here with acouple choices for a case and let us pick from those cases that you picked out.

512gb SSD added as requested. Changed suggested 7970 for one with a better heatsink and about $40 less expensive.

@PLS

I'm a student, so I get MSDNAA and all the good(or bad, depending) microsoft products for free ;)


And I still need a mouse and a keyboard as well. As I said I've never built a computer, so never really had a need for any good mice/keyboard setups. Suggestions are welcome.


@BarbaricSoul

Thanks a bunch! I'll take a look over what you posted.

Any good suggestion for places to shop for cases? (Online or in person)

Newegg.com


BTW, The system I laid out will have very close to the same performance as my current 2600k system. The 3770k cpu is about 10% faster than my 2600k. The motherboard I suggested has to do with how happy I've been with my MSI motherboard. XFX puts out some very good video cards and I'm extremely happy with my XFX HD7970. I've heard OCZ SSDs are not the best available when it comes to reliability, but I've had two OCZ SSDs now, and never had a problem with either.


Opps, forgot to list the cost of my build. Without an OS or case, your looking at $1527.89

Didn't even break my $2000 budget. You can spend more than that! :D


A few things:

You said the graphics cards come with 6 games, but I don't really need that. I'd rather go a step up. Plus I'm unsure if that supports 3 monitors? I need to be sure before I buy.

I can't tell if the keyboard is mechanical? I'm a sucker for the clicky-clack sound :)

The SSD you suggest is kinda small, I was thinking more along the lines of 250 gb...

Everything else looks good. Love the mouse :D

I thought since he wanted a GPU that can push 3 monitor, he wanted 3 monitors....

Back to topic: Why aren't we suggesting the LGA2011 socket?

Reread my build, I've added three 26 inch monitors and I'm just barely over $2000. The 7970 I listed has connections for up to 5 monitors and will support that many monitors. Three won't be a problem. Also, the 7970 is AMD's best single GPU video card, and is atleast equal to if not better than(depending on the application) Nvidia's top single GPU card, which is the GTX680. The keyboard is mechanical(I wouldn't suggest anyother type). As for the SSD, I'll adjust my build and include a larger SSD.

I don't think a 7990 is needed honestly. I play alot of games, and even on my 2560*1600 30" monitor, my single 7970 does great. Only way I'd suggest the 7990 is if the OP was going to run three 2560*1600 monitors.

@PLS (your original post)

The monitor I found was the same price as yours after mail in rebate, but I think it has slightly better performance(better response time @ 2ms)

Again I think I could go a bit pricier with the SSD/graphics card

And I want to stay away from the Phantom case. Not trying to be hipster, but they're not terribly original (even for a guy who hasn't built a PC before!) :)

Also, would I be able to overclock with the setup? I'm not terribly familiar, so I'm not sure what kinda of cooling system I would need

Thanks btw!


EDIT: of course if getting a better graphics card won't be noticeable at the display I'm at, then I'd rather just save the money :)
