I get 60 FPS with Ultra settings and Sweetfx at about 65 degrees. What is your price range? the 770 is on newegg for like $240 and the 780 is going for $293.

Thank ya! Yeah the GPU will drop to $320 for a bit I think. Also, sometimes Newegg will include a free game with the purchase so you might look for that. Even if you don't like the game you might be able to sell it for 10 bucks on eBay or something like that.

I'm really not that crazy about the motherboard. Make sure it's fitting your needs well before buying it.

Also what type of case are you looking at?

For desktop speakers? Absolutely not unless you really have too much money to know what to do with.

Update those prices. $328.55 for speakers is almost to buy a 4gb 770.

A few suggestions off the top of my head:

-Better RAM model. -Don't spend $280 on a 270 whatever you do. You can get a GTX 770 for $30 more. And a $760 for $30 less. -Would get a Fractal Design R4 that often fluctuates under a hundred bucks. But that's a personal opinion. -Don't pay $70 for that PSU. You can get it for much less.

Oh yeah and put this in forums :P

Good luck!

Awesome. Firstly, when do you need it? Because I'll need to buy a new case before I ship this one out, ya know?

That build looks awesome. Except one thing, that PSU is wayyyyy too much! You don't need 860 platinum unless you are running SLI and heavy overclocking. You can easily save 100 bucks right there to put towards something else.

Also, I'm looking to swap my case for a new one because there's a part I'm going to get that won't fit in this storm enforcer. Would you be interested to buy mine? I can give you 3 200mm red LED megaflows as well! I bought one for the top, and got a replacement for the front for free, just because it's a bit loud.

Samsung 840 evo seems to be the best. I've seen it at $140 U.S. a few times for the 256GB model.

This is a great looking build. I see you put a lot of effort in it and you've done great for your first go around!

Something I noticed, your evo fan is backwards. From the picture, it seems to be pushing air back inside the case, when you want it pushing air out the rear. You can use the arrows on the fan to help you. Also, since you're moving it, pushing air out is more effective than pulling air out, so put the fan on the right side of the evo as well.

So flip and switch the fan on there:P It'll help your airflow!

I have a cathode, I don't really mind the converter as much as I thought I would. Really depends on your case actually.

You're right, vram will never change the games frame rate. But in the future, as in a couple years, we don't know if some games will require 3gb of vram as opposed to 2gb, which it is now for some games. So buying the 4gb basically future proofs your card, so that's why from now on, if you want to SLI, you should strongly consider 3gb of vram on each card.

Nice build man! You got a great deal on that monitor for sure, you should update the prices of everything you bought.

Also, reading your last statement, this site isn't about making the most extreme i7 4960K Quad Titan SLI and showing it off with a 900d and personal water coolant. (although we'll drool over it) We appreciate practicality as well! Good prices and parts along with plentiful pictures and a good description of your experience is what it's all about! And you've done that. +1 Enjoy it!

Ahh I see. Well the cables are very sleek so it really isn't that big of a deal compared to the regular cables of some PSU's.

Wow where'd you get those deals on the CPU and GPU? You shaved $100 just off those two components alone!

Tidy up those cables! It makes such a difference.

I love black and white themed builds; very aesthetically pleasing. Great part selections here as well.

You should update those prices for what you paid!

Also, is there no case slot to wire the CPU power cable through so it's not running across the motherboard? That'd be my only suggestion on this amazing build. Enjoy it! +1

Syzygy. I don't have a profile pic. I should probably put one on there. I played recently Black Ops, Loadout, Skyrim and DayZ. If you can't find me, I'll just search your's if that's easier.

And awesome man! You should upload it to the site!

Also a tip, make your first picture one showcasing the beauty of the build! That's the one people see on the list of completed builds. No one wants to click on a mousepad :P They want to see this great looking system!

And yes hindsight is 20/20, but I still think this build is great, especially with those two upgrades!

Very clean build with great cable management, plentiful pictures and description. +1

You seem to very critical of your build, but I think you've done a good job personally. I agree maybe you could have gone with a better CPU, but otherwise everything looks great and you got some great prices.

I think money saved towards a 760, 280x or 770 would match the quality of the rest of your internal components and the peripherals you have.

And maybe an LED to go into there to make it all the more beautiful? :P

Seriously though, a great build. You were really critical of your choices and I got to respect the approach you took when making this. Enjoy it!

Where'd you get the deals on that CPU and Motherboard? Those are some great prices.

3,000 dollar system with an i5 and stock cooler. I'd definitely overclock and get a nice liquid cooler.

Really didn't think you could fit a Noctua cooler into a BitFenix, very well done! I agree with you when you say you maybe over did a bit with the motherboard, but besides this, really spot on part selection and prices. Another impressive first build, enjoy it!
