So, hello everyone.
Since my laptop is about to break apart I decided to search for a new PC.
I want to use the following software with it:
Adobe: After Effects, Premiere, Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator
Modern games with at least medium resolution settings
Additionally, I want that PC to last me a couple of years and be still at least a little bit up-to-date.
More so, I want to OC my CPU - not much, just about 0.5 Ghz above standard.
So, here are the parts I chose:
Intel i7 4790k, 4x 4.00GHz
Thermalright True Spirit 140 Power
ASUS R9290-DC2OC-4GD5 DirectCU II OC, Radeon R9 290, 4GB GDDR5, 2x DVI, HDMI, DisplayPort
Western Digital WD Blue 1TB, 64MB Cache, SATA 6Gb/s
Samsung 120GB SSD (currently in my Laptop)
MSI Z87-G41 PC Mate
Mushkin Enhanced Blackline Ridgeback DIMM 8GB, DDR3-2133
Fractal Design Arc Midi R2
Corsair CS Series Modular CS650M 650W ATX 2.3
I know that I should build in 16GB of RAM, but I would probably wait with that a couple of weeks to keep the initial budget low.
I am not sure about the Motherboard - I dont think that I need anything else than the things this Motherboard offers, so there would be no reason to pay more for one, or is there?
Please tell me what you think about that setup, it's my first build and I am am afraid that I forgot something...
