Well my old system just isnt doing enough for me anymore.... rather old and im pretty sure the motherboard is on its way out!

anyway any tips before I attempt to build it as the parts all arrived today....

(above graphics card isnt mine, Bought it for my mate who im swapping with as he couldnt water cool the gtx 760 he bought last week and mines just a closed cooler for processor without graphics cooling)

Ive helped build a mates which was a similar spec but wanted to ask some of you comp nerds for some tips or tricks... should be a bit of a beast once completed though

spec as follows

Intel Core i7 4820K 3.70GHz
Gigabyte GA-X79-UP4
Corsair RM 750W Fully Modular 80+ Gold Power Supply
Corsair Hydro Series H110 280mm High Performance Liquid CPU Cooler
Corsair Vengeance Pro 32gb
Ocz Vertex 460 240gb Ssd (main windows drive)
Sandisk 120gb ssd (old ssd from other comp - using it as scratch disk)
Toshiba 3TB 3.5" (for photography storage)
WD 2TB 3.5''(my old comp storage)
Gigabyte GTX 760 OC 4GB GDDR5 Graphics Card (with a free copy of watchdogs so looking forward to playing that!
Zotac GTX 750 Ti OC 2GB GDDR5 (its my old graphics card so thinking of just using this as a physx card??? any light on this as im not quite sure on how its done) but could be usefull with watchdogs?

and its all going in this lovely case
Carbide Series Air 540 Arctic White





and the two screens i have bought are pretty awesome (mounted on vesa dual arms)




also ive bought some really fine mesh and adhesive magnet strips to stop the dust from getting in as apparently there is only one filter on the front of the case.
and some leds to light the inner of the box I feel like a kid at christmas but dont want to fuck it up

Cases with windows were popular about 8 years ago.

OCZ ssd drive hope you like warranties.

Other than that 8/10 would build

I just really liked that case, and never done the build thing before so its probably like a new kid getting a corsa (with no knowledge of the 'scene' and buying a big body kit ha!)

as for the comments with the ocz drive, I did hear of things before about these drives but apparently since being bought out by tobisha these new drives are getting really good reviews ... i guess time will tell (await my ''ssd is fucked and lost loads of data thread'')

Lovely spec. And I think the case is cool, personally.

Curious why you wouldn't choose a/some proper monitors if you work with photography. And in any case, why 21:9 screens?

I cant afford £1k + for something like the decent eizo monitors. and these monitors are great. once I calibrate them they offer everything i need for now. got them for a steal too for like 500 the pair. 21:9 - Well they just looked great. and were on offer

also ill be selling my old system (minus graphics card and hd if anyone wants it. will be letting it go for cheap cheap. cost me 1200 in 2010...

PCS MAELSTROM T900 BLACK GAMING CASE (dusty and bleh but still good.)

ASUS® P6X58D-E: DDR3, USB 3.0, SATA 6.0GB/s, 3-Way SLI

Intel® Core™i7 Quad Core Processor i7-950 (3.06GHz) 4.8GTs/8MB Cache

12GB KINGSTON HYPER-X TRI-DDR3 1600MHz, X.M.P (6 x 2GB KIT)

450W Quiet 80 PLUS Dual Rail PSU + 120mm Case Fan

SUPER QUIET 22dBA TRIPLE COPPER HEATPIPE CPU COOLER

I do have a 1GB NVIDIA GEFORCE GT430 PCI EXPRESS - DirectX® 11 which id also throw in, but not sure how good it is anymore as i upgraded a while back....


looking for like 300 ono as im not sure why it was playing up. runs perfect minus on photoshop where it lags when you use the clone stamp and things like that - didnt have enough time to find out the issue as such and wanted to upgrade to something really good anyway so was an excuse. ive read it could be the ram, motherboard or graphics card... or even cus of the new massive dual screen setup... come to think of it. its probably that and the graphics card... only happened since i bought the screens two weeks ago...
