    My New PC Build for 2014

    I've decided to sell my current PC to a friend and get a brand new completely different PC build and I wanted to run it by you guy to see what you think.

    MSI Z87-G43 Intel Z87
    Intel Core i5-4670K 3.40GHz
    Cooler Master Seidon 120M
    PALIT JetStream GeForce GTX 760 OC 2048MB GDDR5 Graphics Card x2
    Corsair Vengeance Pro Blue 8GB (2x4GB)
    850W XFX Pro XXX Edition 80PLUS [P1-850X-XXB9]
    2TB Seagate Barracuda
    500GB Western Digital (Current Hardrive)
    Fractal Design Define R4
    BenQ XL2411T

    The build will cost £1350 or $2057.94 if you're in 'murica.

    What do you guys think of the build, any suggestions would be nice, thanks!

    ​I'd suggest bumping that PSU to a little bit higher wattage.
    When the earth is changed into a humid dungeon,
    In which Hope like a bat
    Goes beating the walls with her timid wings
    And knocking her head against the rotten ceiling;
    When the rain stretching out its endless train
    Imitates the bars of a vast prison
    And a silent horde of loathsome spiders
    Comes to spin their webs in the depths of our brains,
    All at once the bells leap with rage
    And hurl a frightful roar at heaven,
    Even as wandering spirits with no country
    Burst into a stubborn, whimpering cry.
    — And without drums or music, long hearses
    Pass by slowly in my soul; Hope, vanquished,
    Weeps, and atrocious, despotic Anguish
    On my bowed skull plants her black flag.

    Like a 800W or 850W? I think that a 750W or 800W would be just fine for this but I could bump up the PSU.

    I would recommend getting at least 10gb of RAM. Do you plan on overclocking?

    10GB? Why do you say that, and yes I will be overclocking.

    Personal preference, i once had a computer with 8gb of RAM and found that it would sometimes be "slower" or not as capable to do some actions that a computer with at least 10gb's of RAM can. Overall, its an amazing build. Hope you enjoy it!

    lol 10gb of ram. Sorry buddy but that ain't possible without some seriously missmatched RAM modules.

    @II-SKOTTIE-II piss off the 500gb Western Digital and get a Samsung 840 Pro 128GB SSD for your OS + Steam. Seriously you'll thank me later. Also don't get 2 GTX 760's, just get one GTX 770 or GTX 780. 8GB should be fine if you're just gaming but I suggest bumping up to 12GB if you do a lot of multitasking and/or rendering.

    I'd suggest at least 1000W to be safe with a build like this.

    A 1000W is definitely overkill for this, a 850W would be going safe with it.

    I'm getting 2 760's because out of all the reviews and benchmarks SLI 760's perform better than a TITAN in most games and the games that were being benchmarked are all games that I play frequently like BF3, Crysis and Metro, all of which are demanding games, BF3 isn't that demanding but it's still a tough game to run. I'm going to stick with 2 760's and that's not gonna change.
