Trying not to overkill it, this PC still blows through games in 1080p at MAX SETTINGS. And has a lot of room for upgrades. Tried to stay within my budget of $1,000, and this is what I came up with. Let me know what you think!
PC Specs (built by me):
The guts of the system:
CASE: Corsair Obsidian 750D
GPU: GeForce GTX 770 2GB w/ ACX Cooling (overclocked settings I found the most stable - core clock offset- +75, mem clock offset- +450)
CPU: Intel Core i5-4670k (overclocked from 3.4 to 4.4 GHz)
RAM: Crucial 8GB (4GBx2) DDR3
POWER SUPPLY: Corsair CX750M (750 watt)
MOBO: AsRock Z87 PRO4
HDD: Toshiba 1TB 7200 RPM
Extra stuff in the system:
OS: Windows 8.1
LIQUID COOLING for CPU: Corsair H80i
WIRELESS: TPLink WRLS-N300
OPTICAL DRIVE: LGELECOEM LG 14X SATA BD BURNER
EXTRA FANS: Corsair AF120 (3) and AF140 (2) w/ Red LED
LED Lighting Kit: Logisys LED w/ Remote Control (x2)
If you want to make it around $1100, just remove all the extra stuff (separate led fans, led light kit, wireless, etc.). I just bought that stuff to pimp it out. Personal preference...
GPU stays under 75C while under full load, CPU stays under 65C while under full load.
