    Question $1,800 PC Build

    I $900 which I'm going to spend on getting parts and refunding it and spending the other $900 for the rest of the parts.

    I looked around YouTube and the closest set up to my budget was this one:



    Part List:

    • CPU-Intel Core i7-4790K 4.0GHz Quad-Core Processor
    • RAM-G.Skill Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory
    • GPU- Asus GeForce GTX 970 4GB STRIX Video Card (2-Way SLI)
    • Motherboard-MSI Z97-GAMING 5 ATX LGA1150 Motherboard
    • HDD-Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM
    • Case-NZXT H440 (Black/Red) ATX Mid Tower Case
    • PSU-Rosewill Hive 750W 80+ Bronze Certified Semi-Modular ATX Power Supply


    Is it good or could I be getting something better with my budget?

    Cool
    You should probably choose another GPU. Either change your i7 to i5 and use that graphics card or change the GPU to GTX 980. Otherwise, it will be bottle necking.

    How can we reccomend parts if we don't know what you're going to do with your rig? Are you into editing, or is it mostly a gaming-pc, how long are you planning on using it etc. etc.

    For pure gaming, you're looking at an i5-4690k along with a good cooler. Also I'd get 16GB's of ram, pick up an ssd and GTX 980/980Ti. Those GPU's bring the most bang for your buck around the $550-$650 range for graphics cards.

    Go for a GTX980 or SLI GTX 970 (If you're playing on >1080p) and a nice i7-4790K with water cooling. (H100i) As Tatenashi Sarashiki said, get a SSD. A rig worth 1800 must have a SSD. You won't regret it.

    Deffo going to need a custom cooler with the 4790k without question. I was hitting close to the TJMax with the stock one (i.e. sometimes around 90c just through basic multitasking!); the chip has a notorious reputation. Either pick a decent air cooler or go water (I personally avoid mixing water with electrical equipment at any cost lol). Went with a noctua NH-D15 in the end (BRILLIANT piece of kit; you would think it was made by Mercedes Benz if it didn't have the noctua logo on it).

    Also AVOID SLI with the 970's in particular. Many people complaining of stuttering/lag/tearing due to the whole RAM-gate thing. I have a 970 in my other system and went with the EVGA 970 FTW+ and would recommend it as it's a re-vamped version of their initial 970 FTW and considered the best "type" of 970 available etc. (So make sure to check out the "plus" version if EVGA is your thing or go with a 980).

    Skylake is completely not worth it. You will notice no performance difference in gaming between an i7 4790K and a i7 6700K.
