Default Gaming PC Build

Sometime next year I will build a gaming pc and I wondered if these parts are a good choice. Note that I would want to overclock a lot.

CASE- Corsair Obsidian 750D ATX Full Tower Case $150

MOBO- ASUS Rampage IV Extreme LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 $430

CPU- Intel Core i7-4930K Ivy Bridge-E 3.4GHz LGA 2011 130W Six-Core Desktop Processor $580

FAN- CORSAIR Hydro Series H100i Extreme Performance Water/Liquid CPU Cooler $100

GPU- EVGA 03G-P4-2883-KR GeForce GTX 780 Ti Superclocked 3GB 384-bit $730

PSU- CORSAIR AXi series AX1200i 1200W Digital ATX12V v2.31 and EPS 2.92 SLI Ready $320

SSD- SAMSUNG 840 Pro Series MZ-7PD256BW 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal SSD $220

HDD- Western Digital Red NAS Hard Drive WD30EFRX 3TB IntelliPower 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb $130

RAM- G.SKILL Trident X Series 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2400 $180

OD- ASUS 24X DVD Burner $20

OS- Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64-bit OEM $190

TOTAL- Around $3000



This might be overkill so tell me what you think.

Looks like a nice build. I couldn't help but notice that you have high performance components, but the storage drive is what WD calls Intellipower. I would go with a desktop hard drive with a spindle speed of 7200RPM to speed up file access.

if i were you go with the rampage 4 extreme black edition, since that one has a easier color scheme to match with. i have the regular extreme edition there and it is so beast. just to let you know when you are putting it together, plug in the v-ram pin connector and the 4-pin at the top before you mount the radiator. it was a headache when i forgot to plug them in. i would suggest to get a consair 800d or something of the same size because this board is extremely huge. with this mobo go with at least 2 way- sli or it would be a waste. also consider going with a hybrid clc like a consair h60 to be mounted on the video card with a aftermarket mount since you are considering overclocking.

Btw, it is not the most overkill for the rampage 4 extreme build. Primordia madusa was pushing $9.5k.

Thanks guys about the case should I go with a Corsair 900D because I know it has plenty of room or a different case entirely.

I looked into it and it seems that a 700D would be plenty big, and the 900D is $175 more expensive. I think i'll just go with a 700D
