You should build one @DzjengisKhan, it’s really easy. 6-9 parts, and you can’t put stuff in the wrong place, the parts will only go in one slot, one certain way. Only two things to worry about building a PC, is make sure you touched something metal before touching the motherboard, and to not play with the CPU cooler outside of it’s casing (The thermal paste will get dust in it, and will make the CPU temps higher)
I can put a good build for you together. Also, I wouldn’t get two 780’s. I’d get two R9 290’s, as one beats a 780, so two would beat two 780’s :b
You could wait a few months, when the new generation of GPU’s come out (GTX 8xx/R7/9 3xx), and the older stuff will be cheaper, or you can get the new hardware. Supposed to be insane fast.
I wouldn’t get more than 8GB’s of ram. Me and a few friends did a test, on rendering two long videos, having a photoshop open, about 50 tabs in chrome(with random news sites open), and 2 games running in the background, and it only used about 15GB’s of ram.
Now, chrome probably took up the most of it, at about 5GB’s of ram, the two games probably took up 3 together, that leaves 7 to render two videos and photoshop open. So, you do not need anymore than 8, and when the time comes that you need more than 8, we will have DDR4.
I’d also drop one HDD, and get a SSD, you’ll notice a huge difference in load/boot up times, not only in your OS, but in your programs.
And I wouldn’t get Windows 7. Mainstream support ends in a few months, so you can’t even buy it after that. And if something messes up with it, you can’t call up Microsoft asking for help, as they can’t help you unless you pay them. I’d go with 8.1, as it’s faster in games, a 5-25% performance increase, and if you don’t use the metro screen, it feels identical to 7. (Source: I use 8.1)
