$3200 for my new build and I haven't even picked a video card yet...

Too bad it won't perform like you would expect from $3200.


Well considering he said he spent a good portion of his budget on peripherals and a chair...


What kind of chair? I don't think that should be part of the "build".

The 4930K doesn't appear on my list, even if I have compatibility mode off. I'm not up-to-date enough on hardware to know when to go outside of this site to find newer parts.

A mechanical keyboard would be fun. I grew up with them in the 90s. I don't think they offer much other than a satisfying clunk sound.


The 4930K literally just came out; PCPartpicker will update it in a few days.

Also, just imo, but the case is a little cheap (not the price) for the build. I'd keep an eye out for Corsair's 750D that should be releasing in the next few weeks.

Since you can have quad-channel, you might want to switch to 4x4GB RAM sticks, the difference might not be much, but the possibility is there.

I'm just curious why you are buying such an expensive motherboard, are you running 3x cards? Also why not pick up a cheap korean 27" monitor for under $300?

Going with a closed loop cooler on a $3,200 build? At least get the Swiftech H220 or something. I also have to agree with Snuckie on the case. You could also switch to a Maximus VI Extreme and a 4770k and save about $250 for a negligible performance difference.

Corsair is releasing a 750D? Is it an 800 replacement, or is it gonna be between the 650 and 800?

Thanks for all the suggestions, guys. As soon as I get time tonight I'll make a few changes and update my list.

Snuckie linked me an article a while back about the H220 being bullied out of the US market, and it hasn't been available on newegg since, and Amazon only has it from private vendors with ridiculous price inflation, you can buy it on the UK site but it's still $200 before shipping. I don't see it being worth a 100% premium over something readily available like a corsair H100i/110

Why not SLI Windows 8 as well? I heard it gives you the performance of Windows 13.

There's nothing wrong with the H100i for this build especially if you don't plan to overclock. I have a 3 year old H70 sitting on it's second CPU in that time and is cooling my 3570K @ 4.5Ghz just fine. That said, if this is strictly a gaming machine and general use, that hex core is a waste of money. Unless you are doing a lot of video editing/encoding, photo editing etc. those extra cores won't be put to good use while gaming. Even a 3770K or 4770K doesn't get used fully with just running games. Even down the road it's not likely for games to use more then 4 cores effectively for quite a while. You'd get better performance from a chip like mine and overclock it (much easier now with K chips then it used to be) , save the money or put it toward more GPU power that can actually make a big difference in gaming performance. Especially if you are looking at high resolution displays. Hex core's won't help you get better framerates in 1440p.

Of course, like I said, if this is strictly a gaming machine.
