I have probably posted this in the wrong area so if I have, I apologise and could a mod please move the thread for me?
I have figured out vaguely what I would like to have in my pc, I will be using it for coding, 3D modelling and very, very heavy duty multitasking! I don't game very often, if I do, it will be COD4 or flight simulator. Flight sim is fine, my chose cpu will give me good enough quality on it, my gpu should ace COD 4 so I should be fine there. I have a rough budget of around 2K all inclusive. The cpu will always be on max as I will be folding the whole time as well and I may conisder an o/c! Anyway, here is my spec, I have just posted links to sites where I can get the part but I don't really know whether the sites I have chosen are a good choice or not, I am in the UK by the way! Anyway, please tell me what you think and what I have missed! Here is the spec: Case:
I will be building my own out of 10mm acrylic, it will be open! Does this sound OK, I will build it after I receive the parts to allow it to fit everything! CPU:
Intel i7 3930k Intel BX80619I73930K Core i7-3930K 6-Core Processor (3.2GHz (3.8GHz Turbo), Socket 2011, 12MB L3 Cache, Turbo Boost 2.0): Amazon.co.uk: Computers & Accessories Mobo:
I am still not certain on this part! I am thinking Asus P9X79 pro?http://www.amazon.co.uk/Asus-P9X79-P.../dp/B006665HCS RAM:
4 x 4GB corsair vengeance quad channel ddr3 @ 1600mhz http://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Compo...ource=googleps GPU:
2GB AMD 7850 HIS HD 7850 2GB GDDR5 DVI HDMI Dual Mini DisplayPort.. | Ebuyer.com 1st HDD:
90GB Corsair Force GT http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B005HG4T0...SIN=B005HG4T0E 2nd HDD:
1.5TB caviar black http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B004CSIFG...SIN=B004CSIFG2
Will probably add another of these later, would it be possible to RAID them in RAID 0? Disk Drive:
Really don't know what to get! Anything cheap and simple, recommend something guys! Just needs to be able to re-write CDs and DVDs! PSU:
Not certain here, I am sure 1000w is overkill but it seems a good psu at a decent price: OCZ ZX Series 1000W 80+ GOLD PSU Fully Modular Single.. | Ebuyer.com
Not a great fan of the brand but you can't have everything! CPU cooling:
Am still tossing up between liquid and air! Liquid cos it is quiet, air for peace of mind! I think I would rather go with air! Possibly this: Noctua NH-D14 Dual Radiator Quiet CPU Cooler - Aria Technology
Am really not sure though! Please advise me! Thermal compound:
Am thinking mx-4? Any ideas? I want something easy to apply! Might get this one in a local shop rather than the internet. Sound card:
I probably don't need one but I do like my music! How about the asus xonar DG? It is supposed to be a great card and it has a good price. http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B003ZXDOL...SIN=B003ZXDOL6 OS:
Win 7 home premium...no need for any higher! 1st, 2nd & 3rd monitors:
iiyama ProLite E2473HDS 24 inch I like the look of these monitors, what do you think? I have used an iiyama before and loved it! Iiyama ProLite E2473HDS 24 inch LED Monitor - PLE2473HDS-B1 - CCL Computers 4th Monitor:
Now, this has to be a touch screen! I researched it and apparently optical touch is the best. I am open to opinions here but I do like the look of the iiyama T2451MTS-B 24". Iiyama ProLite T2451MTS-B 24" Widescreen MultiTouch LCD Monitor - Black [T2451MTS] Keyboard, mouse etc:
I have a mouse, I would need a wireless keyboard, something relatively cheap please! What do you guys recommend?
I think I ought to explain how this is going to work! I am going to build a whole workstation for myself
! I am going to build a desk that will accomodate the tower or maybe shelf on the left with plenty of cooling! Then on top, three monitors at the back. At the front, in front of where I would sit would be a touchscreen monitor embedded into the desk so that it is flat and I look down upon it. I am hoping I can put the iiyama flat or embed it somehow but I still need to look into this! I also have a surge protector at home. finally, I realise I will need to eyefinity display adapters, I couldn't find where to get these, help here would be appreciated! I also have some speakers. Now, what have I missed?! Any help would be much appreciated!
This would all come to ~£2,150 which is just about OK, I will wait for IVY bridge to arrive for the cpu to drop in price. Is there anywhere you guys think I could save some money? I am considering dropping the touchscreen entirely.
