My work in progress, did some further organizing and realigned my H60 since the pic. New Corsair modular PSU is in the works as well.

Thanks! I'm hoping after the new (read: much nicer) modular PSU, I will be able to really clean it up a bit more, but so far I've been pretty pleased with it. Just with the Corsair H60 and better cable management I dropped my CPU temps by 10*C at peak load.

Won't regret it. I'm sort of a Corsair whore but I really like their PSU's, buddy got an HX750 and I helped him put his shit together, realllllly liked it.

no reason whatsoever for a $400 motherboard when you're running one video card and not pushing ridiculous over clocking.

i got this one the other day for $120 ish, should do the trick on most builds pretty well, and has "killer nic" and some sort of integrated sound blaster solution.

http://us.msi.com/product/mb/Z87-G45....html#overview

i'd get a bigger hard drive too, 240 gb ssd are cheap now,

i have a 120 on my mac mini for os drive, even with extra drives for media and no games it gets a bit tight.

i don't know whats good with modern gaming cards, but a 800ish watt power supply, 16gb ram and i5 seem like they would carry you, no idea what that case is either but a good case will outlive any other hardware at least till atx is dead. I shelled out for an awesome lian li case about 10 years ago, still using it today, has seen every one of my pc builds since.

The mother board is at $180 actually

Will look at that MSI one.

Might spring up to the 240 ssd then for future games

they have the extreme thats like 400 +

Bro. I built my PC just to play SWTOR, but back in 2011 at release date. Do you really like the game enough to build a whole PC for it? Maybe I would reroll with you just to play. It's definitely a fun game. What class were you trying to play as?

Update.

bought parts. decided to go a little more heavy duty.
will be playing MMO's on this rig. such as SWTOR. Elder Scrolls Online. and Diablo 3.

MOBO: Asus Maximus VI Formula
CPU: Intel i5 4670k
Mem: Corsair Vengeance Pro 16gb
GPU: Asus GTX 780 DC2OC-3GD5
HD: Samsung 840 Evo 250 SSD / Western Digital 1tb HDD
PSU: Corsair ax860
Case: Corsair air 540
OS: Windows 7

also got an assortment of corsair fans along with their h105 cooler. and a bunch of BitFenix cables to make it look pretty. and a corsair keyboard/mouse.

in future will probably buy a second GTX 780 for SLI, and another 16gb of ram, along with a nicer gaming monitor.

should be a good looking rig. will post pics of pc hopefully by next weekend if everything comes in quickly.

Dude. Those gfx cards will be more than enough for any MMO out there. MMOs are always on the lighter side for system requirements. How much did you pay for that 780? The specs on those are insane. 3gb DDR5 will be good, I can't imagine any game that would require you to have two of those.

haha totally agree. but i like to overkill it.

i currently use my iMac for all of my image post processing shiz, but i'll probably buy software to do it on this pc once i get a better monitor, so having huge ass GPU's will be awesome for that.


the 780 was ~$500

Your PC looks awesome, are those the cables that came with the PSU or did you do something to them? (edit: nvm I used google lol) Obviously awesome specs, but you can't beat that look
