New gaming PC


Dec 14, 2014
Hi All,,

I do everything on my PC from gaming, audio/video editing and virtual machines. Unlikely to overclock.

I'm looking to purchase this at the end of this month.

CPU: Intel Core i7-4790K 4.0GHz Quad-Core Processor
CPU Cooler: Corsair H100i 77.0 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z97X-UD3H ATX LGA1150 Motherboard
Memory: Corsair Vengeance Pro 32GB (4 x 8GB) DDR3-1600 Memory
Storage: Samsung 840 EVO 1TB Solid State Drive
Storage: Western Digital BLACK SERIES 4TB 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive
Case: Corsair 750D ATX Full Tower Case
Power Supply: Corsair 750W 80+ Platinum Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply

GPU: nvida GTX 970 (already purchased)

Any suggestions?


No point to ever get a 1tb SSD for gaming.
Lowered the latency of the RAM
Do not bother getting 32Gb of RAM. 16 is the most you will need for 5+ years. Even in editing it provides <5% benefit.
Get another 970. It will help more with the other parts reduced.

Go with an XFX 650W or Seasonic 620W power supply as you should save some money.
