Hey everyone, I am looking for your opinion on my first build. Please help me with any suggestions or feedback you might have.
I decided to switch over from console gaming after many years to the master race of pc and thus figured I needed a better rig. I plan to also do some video editing/rendering in the future. I want my first build to allow for upgraded in the future, such as SLI. I went for an almost all white color scheme for the build for the nice clean look and I will attempt to overclock all that i can. Since it's near the holidays i would like to try to drop the price as much as possible to maybe 3000$ or more so plz suggest anything such as deals or changeable parts on the following build:
CPU: I picked the 5820k over the rest because I really only needed 28 PCIe lanes and the hexa core really interested me for other future applications. I also had read that having direct x12 in windows 10 with the extra threads, they will be used more for even gaming pretty soon.
CPU Cooler: I picked the kraken because my case could fit it and many people had recommended it. If needed to save $ I will change to the H100i.
MOBO: the x99 platform really caught my eye especially this which had almost all the same features as the much higher costing deluxe or pro versions imo. I also plan to utilize the m.2 slot for a faster SSD in the future such as the 950 pro in RAID O format.
RAM: the Geil I chose is currently out of stock in white but it works great with the mobo's quad reader as to why I chose 4x4GB.
Storage: the HDD was just a good price by a company I trust and the SSD was highly recommended to me for a good size/price.
GPU: I read up a lot on which to pick and the 980 ti seemed the best in my price range and thus i chose the hybrid by EVGA for their great customer service and because I plan to do some major overclocking. I plan to eventually buy a 2nd hybrid and I'll get the SLI bridge then.
Case: Nice white to match the scheme and the cable management and size are perfect for everything else. Plus those LED's just are too nice to pass down. I read the internal fan hub that came with the case could sometimes keep them fans running at max rpm, so i went with the Sentry 3 controller.
PSU: i was able to get this on sale early so why not and it's by EVGA.
Fans: This may seem like a lot but I plan to replace the stock fans on the kraken and hybrids and set up some push/pull configurations. Kraken as top exhaust and hybrid as front intake.
Mouse/keyboard: I really wanted an LED show in my room at night so why no other than the best for that. And anyway the black widow has all that i want including 5 macro keys because I'll be playing mostly mmo's and thus i chose the naga. But unless it drops in price, I'll probably go with the deathadder that I currently have.
Monitor: I really want to get the most of my pc gaming experience with 144Hz, <4 ms RT, 1440p, and g-sync but unless the S2716DG or other of equal specs drop in price I may need to downgrade it to lower the total.
Lastly for the rest of the others I wanted to customize the pc to my liking in white and those extra LED's because why not?
Thank you for reading and thanks in advance for any replies and help!
