My first build, any advice's?

KPECTOK
Level 7
So, i'm about to by a new PC and before i will i would to know the Pros and Cons on the build or the parts so if you guys have something to say, please do.

Case: Corsair Graphite Series 600T
MB: ASUS Maximus VI Formula
CPU: Intel i7 4770k
CPU Cooler: H100i
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 8GB 1866 CL9
GPU: ASUS GTX 780 Ti DCU2OC
PSU: AX860i
HDD: WD Black 1TB
SSD: Asus Raidr Express 240GB
OD: ASUS BW-16D1HT

The reason i chose the AX860i is because i will do an SLI with the same kind of GPU.
I will not do an OC to the GPU/CPU (at least right away, maybe in the future)
I will mostly do some gaming and a bit of video editing but not the professional kind. (i think the RAM should do it)

If you are having some kind of problems with any of those components please tell me.

Thanks, KPECTOK.

Thanks, i don't think i really need 16GB RAM but if there will be a price drop... maybe
If any of you knows a good case (Black and Red theme) with a side window to see what is inside please suggest.

BTW: what do you think about the Corsair Vengeance C70 case?


Don't tell Dr. Z, but I don't like the C70.

Good black/red case is the new NZXT H440.
Say hi to the next generation.

Haha - I got the case for next to nothing - my first choice was a Corsair 900d or a nice and expandable CaseLabs rig. I have grown attached to my c70, though, even though I had to make a few cuts to fit everything properly.

@KPECTOK: Here's a link to my c70 setup if you want to see how I've managed with it.

Don't get such a giant SSD. I don't even do them this big when I quote clients on all-flash SANs. You get greatly decreased perf. after the disk is 1/2 full at 1TB in size. You may just want to get a 240/256 or a 512 SSD + a 1 or 2TB WDD Black/RE4 drive.

New H440 from NZXT has no 5.25 bays so be careful if that's not what you want.

Make sure you don't get the WD Black 2. That is an HDD+SSD.
