Does this build look nice? (Feedback needed!)

Hey guys!



First time on the forums and since no one is helping me out on Twitter, then I'll just ask out here!

Please tell me if my build is solid for Gaming and general use over all. And as a question, will I need to buy an adapter to make a H100i work with Haswell? Or will it work no matter what. Links please if I need to buy something like an adapter!

And PLEASE anwer my questions that I have for the products. I put them in CAPS and in parantheses next to the product title.

PLEASE comment if something is NOT compatible. Tell me if I needed a higher Wattage PSU. I don't know if 850watts is enough for haswell + 2 GTX 770's in SLI.

I also want recommendations on ~23 inch monitors that are 1080p, IPS, and are GREAT for triple monitor Nvidia surround besides the one I have below listed, because it's almost out of stock and stuff.


QUESTION: Is it okay if I buy products from other sellers instead from Amazon? I live in Kansas so I have to pay a lot of tax.. I'd rather buy from other sellers that are 90%+ feedback, since they are similar prices as Amazon, BUT no tax. So, I save up to like $300 from not buying directly from Amazon. I'm planning on buying a LOT of my components that are expensive (CPU, Mobo, storage, etc.) from 3rd party sellers on Amazon, since I save a LOT of money since I don't have to pay tax for 3rd party amazon sellers.


Here are my parts I'm planning on buying (I read the rules and I found nothing on posting links to Amazon, so here goes..):

Intel Core i7-4770k Quad Core -

Asus Sabertooth Z87 Mobo -

H100i Liquid Cooler -

Samsung 840 series 120GB SSD -

Seagate Barracuda 2TB Hard Drive -

EVGA GTX 770 Superclocked with AXC Cooling (2 of them for SLI!) -

Corsair Vengeance 32GB DDR3 1866mhz RAM -

Corsair Professional Series AX 850 Watt Modular PSU -

Asus PCI Wifi Adapter/Card -

Corsair Air Series AF140 Quiet Series Single Fan -

Asus 24xDVD RW Internal OEM Drive -

NZXT HUE LED Changing Controller (I REALLY want coo LIGHTS in my system, so I REALLY WANT THESE)-

Fractal Design R4 Windowed Black Pearl -


Here are some additional accesories I am also buying with the PC at the same time:

CM Storm QuickFire Stealth Cherry MX Blue Switches Mechanical Keyboard -

Corsair Vengeance M60 Performance Mouse -

SteelSeries 4HD Professional Series Gaming Mouse Pad -

Cyber Acoustics Subwoofer Satellite System Speakers -

Arctic Silver 5 Polysynthetic Thermal Paste -

Cables To Go Cable Ties -

Cat6 Patch Cable (PLEASE ANSWER: Isn't this just an ethernet cable for internet? I hope it is, that's why I'm buying it.) -



I hope you can answer most, if not all my questions I have.

Very hectic build. A lot of stuff I'm buying. I can't really upgrade in the future, hence the reason why I'm kind of going over kill. And, I want to get nvidia surround. :D



First of all, make a PcPartPicker list, and secondly, please tell us your budget.

ok not being lazy and reading your post.... sounds pretty beefy

$3k ish total budget. Probably $3.3k MAX with tax. I'll try to go there and do it.

So sorry.

First build after a LONG time. Need as much help as I can get.

I can't afford to send things back or waste time, or buy things that won't work together.
