Been a very long time since I got my paws down and dirty into a system, and I think it's high time for me to build one again.
Rig will be used for gaming, and all other times for SETI and BOINC computing most likely around the clock. I've been doing research for maybe a week or two now, and my budget is going to be right around $2000-2200 USD. Definitely looking into OC'ing, nothing immense, but definitely going for it. Liquid cooling is a definite, but IDK if I should go with a big kit and route it to the GPU as well since I'll be clocking that too, or should I just stick with a liquid cooler for the CPU and get some good case fans for everything else.
Now, I don't need the system just yet, so I can wait a few months if I have to, I'm definitely not in a rush, so as always the prices are liable to change.
This is the list I have put together so far, any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. No need to sugar coat anything either
Was thinking about going with a 770 SLI setup, but decided on just the single 780 w/ clocking.
Please and thank you, ladies and gents.
Edit: I was also looking into deliding the haswell chip and repasting it, seems like Intel skimped out on that, would you guys recommend it?
Edit 2: Also looked into the Asus Sabertooth z87 Mobo as well, only thing is that it seems ASUS's RMA process is a major pain in the neck to deal with if anything goes wrong. Any recent experiences?
