Didn't see one in the catalog. Share your builds, give suggestions, etc.

I'm new to this, and this is my first attempt at a build (based heavily on logicalincrements) so feel free to rip me apart. Looking to make a PC for gaming, video editing, and programming (potential VM usage). Budget $1000-1500.

Is there a way I can upgrade this for 400 dollars or less?

4690k + Asus H97-M = $319 at microcenter.

Reuse memory and video card.

Enjoy a power quadcore that is only 3% weaker than skylake.

Microcenter doesn't sell 4690 non-K

But the $20 bundle discount makes it equivalent to a 4690 price-wise.

>>52482213
You're gimping yourself for 20$, you could get a Z mobo and actually OC that 4690k

kinda.

You went with a ganked "8-core" processor that won't really benefit you much - even in video editing and rendering.

But it's not the end of the world. AMD is still solid for gaming.

I will build this in the spring, mainly for design work(3d, photoshop animation and some games).

You do realize 1 980 Ti is stronger than 2x970's right? And only $30 more expensive.

Need a recommendation for a decent full tower case.

Literally the only thing from me pulling the trigger on my purchase.

My PSU just died (because I was a dumb fuckface and I cheaped out on it) so now I'm getting an RM750i.

Then I decided to also grab a new case since I'm fucking done with my Z11 plus, so I'm getting an NZXT H440.

Did I do good? I'm mostly interested in the PSU since I don't want it to die on me again.
