Guest RET.LT.Padarom=US= Posted February 7, 2015 Share Posted February 7, 2015 I've decided to update my rig this year and would rather do it sooner than later. These are my current specs (not including peripherals): CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 955 (4x3.2 GHz)Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper TX3 EvoGPU: GTX 660 Ti OC WindforceRAM: TeamGroup Elite DDR3-1333 CL9 2x4GBMobo: BioStar TA770XE3 (AM3)Case: Sharkoon T28PSU: Arctic Fusion 550R (550W)Disks:Samsung SSD 840 PRO (128GB)Samsung HD103SI 1TB HDDSeagate Barracuda 3TB HDD What I'm thinking of for my new build: CPU: Intel i7-4790K (4x4.0 GHz, 4c/8t)Cooler: Corsair Hydro H100i water coolingGPU: GTX 970RAM: Some DDR3-1600 CL9 8GBMobo: ASRock Z97M (mATX, Intel 1150)Case: Corsair Carbide Air 240PSU: Cooler Master GX-Lite 700WDisks: Will keep the current onesSoundcard: ASUS Xonar DGX PCI-Express CPU is supposed to get OC'ed once I get the cooling. Originally I wanted to go with the Corsair Air 540, but that's about twice the price (and size) of the 240, and everything I want should also fit in there. I'm running two 27'' (1080p) screens and clone one of them to my 40'' TV. I'd start of with just buying the CPU, Mobo and Case - Using my current GPU, PSU and RAM - and getting the other components later down the line. This way I don't have to pay ~1000€ right off the bat and it initially "only" costs me half the price. Any thoughts, improvements, suggestions? Thanks!
