Of course it won't be the very most cost efficient build, but I'm just worried the CPU, GPU, and MOBO won't be good enough? I really am clueless concerning this sort of thing and am still learning!

Good enough for what?

Are you using your PC for video editing/photoshop/other heavy programs or for gaming?

it'll work, but you can spend your money more wisely.

Performing pretty well during some more taxing games using dual monitors >.>
And perhaps streaming some.

Just gaming really. Maybe some music recording, but my current PC does well enough at that atm.

Ah, alright.

Just letting you know that the motherboard in that build is for the LGA 2011 socket.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LGA_2011

It's just like it says, for the most high enthusiasts or those who need it for applications that have heavy CPU usage.


Otherwise, for the average joe you can look for an LGA 1155 motherboard and CPU.

That should be an Ivy Bridge CPU and a Z77 platform motherboard.

This is basically something you would want to look for.

In the build you listed, there's plenty of things that could be changed to save you a lot of money (well the first thing to do to save more is to build the pc yourself).

- 16GB memory is unnecessary for gaming.

- 850W power supply wouldn't be necessary for that entire system. It's more than overkill.

- Case is.. bleh.

- You could use an air cooler instead of the liquid cooler in that build for overclocking.



Just how much exactly is that build anyway?

Looking to change around the mobo and cooler. What Watt power supply do you think would be more suited? I am just trying to play it safe here! I'll get back to you on the price after some changes! :)

edit: and how is the processor btw?!

I am looking through these selection btw http://www.cyberpowerpc.com/system/CyberPower_X79_Configurator/ >.<
