Could a kind member double check my build to ensure compatibility?

#1Aeon320Posted 2/6/2014 11:09:07 AM
Good afternoon all,

I was wondering if you could take the time to double check my final build - I'm going to be picking up all the parts when income tax comes in. I already have a 750W OCZ PSU, and 4x4GB RAM (probably 1333Mhz). I need to make sure that everything will fit (which it should, only concern is GPU) and will be compatible. I've already checked myself, but I'd feel better with almost a 'proof-read'. Thanks for your time.

Case: Corsair Carbide Series Air 540
PSU: (750W OCZ)
Mobo: ASUS Maximum VI Formula LGA1150 Z87
CPU: Intel i7-4770k 3.5Ghz
GPU: EVGA Geforce GTX 780TI SC 3GB
RAM: (4x4GB 1333Mhz)
Storage: Samsung Pro 256GB SSD & (5400RPM HDD)
*Parentheses indicate reused parts.

I appreciate all of your help, and I can provide any other information please let me know?

Looks fine. Mobo socket is correct and it can take 1333 RAM. Do you know the exact RAM model you have? Only issue I can think is bolts but I doubt you'll run into an issue there.

A ballpark guess from me would be somewhere around ~$1600 or more.

It is like $1750 all together with shipping, and without any sales. That is without a PSU, RAM, or HDD involved in the price.

Looks fine. Any particular reason you need a $300 motherboard?

I don't /: Could you elaborate on what 'bolts' you are referring to?

Nothing in particular - just the included sound seems to be an upgrade over the Hero's, and I will eventually SLI. Should I opt for the Hero instead?

If you want to spend money on your sound, don't pour it into the motherboard. Just get a separate sound card. A $70 Sound Blaster Z is going to be better than what you get on the $300 board and will give you more flexibility.
