Putting together a new computer

#1ironklad2002Posted 12/8/2013 3:59:28 AM
I am putting together a new computer and would like some advice on parts.

that's what i am thinking of at the moment, but I'm a little unsure the case and the motherboard. Can anyone think of a better case and motherboard to go with or is that build okay as is?

Why not go Haswell? Also I'd recommend a case from either: Corsair, Fractal Design or NZXT. Those guys are way ahead of the competition.

Thanks, will have a look into haswell and corsair cases.

You don't need to go haswell....

Good build

I wouldn't recommend a 4770k over a 3770k if you going to overclock higher price for equal/lower performance

You might want to get a better psu though

LGA 1155 socket is nearing the end of its lifetime though. 1150 will at least still support Broadwell processor in the future.

NZXT is meh in my opinion I would say corsair, FD, or cooler master case.

Edit: That case you have is perfectly great as well
#7BowsaaPosted 12/8/2013 7:46:13 PM
Get a Corsair case. Definitely the way to go imo.

Not bad but u need a better power supply
#9BeefCastlePosted 12/8/2013 8:25:46 PM
The 780ti is a beast, no doubt. But good god I couldn't spend 700 on a single card. I would go AMD, better bang for your buck. The 290x perhaps.

Pretty much don't listen to anyone about a case ever unless they're talking purely functional. Different cases do have different things etc. My point is, go here http://www.newegg.com/Computer-Cases/Category/ID-9 and find a case that speaks to you
