    Your CPU won't fit in that motherboard.

    How can I fix that?

    You can change it to something like a MSI Z87-G55.
    As for the power supply if you're not over volting those 780Tis you can spend about $100 - $120 on a Rosewill Capstone/m 750w or Rosewill Fortress 750w.

    I would also dump that 4771 and get a 4770k instead. You'll be able to get quite a bit more performance out of a 4770k. I'd also upgrade the PSU a bit after that change because you'll need to compensate for the increased power requirements of overclocking the CPU. Even if you don't overclock at the beginning you should still get it so you have the option. The price difference is minimal.

    So what should I use for the PSU?

    Or just get a 4670/k because even the 4770k is hardly a bargin.
    Now really, the default bios for the 780Ti has a TDP limit of 250w, you're looking at <700w absolute maximum system power consumption.

    Again, that's if you're not overvolting and flashing custom bios.

    I'm a little confused on your RAM configuration.
    I think you want 2x8GB, not 4x4GB like I think you have listed.

    That's a bit much for gaming.
    The Rosewill Capstone 750 is on sale on newegg for $70 and the MSI GD65 is on sale too. Both good options at good prices right now.

    I have the Rosewill and I am also going to be editing. What is the MSI GD65?

    Personally since you have the money, I would suggest having someone else build this for you because its one of those things that if you run into problems you might be in a bit of trouble. My suggestion would be to go with Cyberpower or iBuypower over Origin as they are much better PC builders.

    Try something like this:
    http://www.cyberpowerpc.com/
    http://www.ibuypower.com

    They will not let you put something together that wont work. You can choose lots of options and have them pre-overclock things and pick up certain parts on sale.

    So, again, for a gaming computer, I'd pick a 4670 and 16GB of RAM.

    Well, I am going to be editing too so I want a bit more RAM.

    • Change HDD to WD Black
    • 64GB RAM is overkill, get 4x sticks at most ....
    • Which OS you planning on using?
    • Get more HDDs if you're going to be editing. Two more in fact.
    • You're missing a SSD.

    Windows 8. Is SSD really worth it? Okay getting more HDDs and so 32 gigs?

    Whats wd black?
     
  22. St1ckM4n

    St1ckM4n TS Evangelist Posts: 3,475   +624

    You chose: HDD - 1TB Western Digital Caviar Blue. You want the Black version instead (faster, better performance).

    Yes, you need SSD. Spending this must money on a pimp rig, only to have to wait on a slow hard drive? With SSD, everything is insanely snappy (opening programs, booting up, etc). Get 120GB SSD at minimum.

    You need extra hard drives for this reason: install OS + editing software on SSD; have the source files on WDBlack#1, use WDBlack#2 (or SSD...) for the 'scratch drive'; use WDBlack#3 to export the finished product to. This way you maximise the performance.

    32GB RAM is overkill for gaming, and should be plenty for video editing too. You can always purchase another pack of RAM to put in at a later time, if you need to.

    Not really. Perhaps post the full build here before clicking 'purchase'.
