What's happening with the games that makes them unplayable? Black screens or something like fps?

He's right, but honestly if you have $4k to spend, get the 4930K, 16GB of RAM, and the 840 EVO, but he's right on the rest of it, you don't need all the adapters and sound cards. I'd get the Wi-fi adapter though, it comes in handy. Get the 1000W PSU. I was an idiot when I built my rig and I got a 750W PSU thinking I wouldn't want to upgrade and I was wrong, so now I have to replace the whole unit.

You're going to want an unlocked (K) processor. Look for the i7s or i5s with the K on the end of them like the 4930K and the 4820K.

If you're not getting the 4930K and want a cheaper LGA 2011 processor, get the 4820K. It's cheaper than the 4930K and is better than the 3820 and is also unlocked.

Dual monitors are basically personal preference, but I like mine because I can be surfing the web for mods or other things while I'm playing games on one screen, and if your game supports it, dual monitor gaming is really engaging and eye popping.

Just as an extra, the monitor you've chosen, the Asus VG248QE, is the only monitor in the world right now that supports NVIDIA G-Sync. G-Sync is really hard to explain, but check out the video that explains it by NVIDIA: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EMsRjSOLw3M

Basically it makes your games stutter free and makes them look freaking amazing. You can by the G-Sync chip and mod your monitor yourself, or you can buy a modded Asus VG248QE with G-Sync for I think about $100 to $200 more than a regular Asus VG248QE. Just check it out:

Well now I feel weird that an i5-4670K is overkill and I have a i7-4930K in my rig...

Well you had a budget didn't you? I'm from the US so you spent like $4 or $5k on it right?

I personally have a i7-4930K in my rig and I love it to death. Those 6 cores come in handy.

How's the 780 Ti? It's a monster. I have dual 770's in my rig which basically is a little more powerful than a 780 Ti. You should've waited until October, when the new GTX 800 series cards are supposedly coming out. The new GTX 880 is going to be faster and cheaper than the 780 Ti.

32GB of RAM? Dude, I'm pretty sure you need only 16GB, but whatever floats your boat.

Personally I would've not gotten the sound card cause I have that mobo on my rig and the sound is fine to me.

You really needed a wired AND wireless adapter? Alright man XD

I would've gotten dual monitors if I was spending that much, but its basically personal preference. I like a lot of space on my screen so I purchased two 24" monitors.

On a final note, WHY IS YOUR OPTICAL DRIVE SO EXPENSIVE?!? It's over $100!

You must be made out of money! I'm jelly of your rig though. :D

Nice build. Here is my opinion:

CPU: Nice, solid CPU. Good for gaming. I personally am an Intel fanboy but for that price the FX-6300 is great.

Motherboard: Seems like a good motherboard, but for the same price I would've gone with the Asus M5A78L-M/USB3

Memory: 4GB is good for some levels of gaming, but if you really want to take advantage of some great games like GTA and Watch_Dogs I would've gone with 8GB or at least 6GB.

Storage: I'm a little confused why you only ordered an SSD. I like to order an SSD on top of my HDD, like icing on a cake. You payed $89 for an SSD, but you could've gotten a 1TB HDD for around $50 and added on to it.

Video Card: The GeForce GTX 750 Ti is a great card for the price, I don't have any negative opinion on what you chose. Great job.

Case: Why did you get an ATX Mid Tower case for a MicroATX mobo? I would've gone with an ATX Mid Tower case with an ATX mobo. It seems like a good, decent, solid case though. If it was in your budget I would've gone with Corsair.

Power Supply: 430W is a little low though, but Corsair is a great brand. I would've gone with the Rosewill Hive 550W Semi-Modular PS. It's a great PS with a little more juice in it.

Optical Drive: Personally I would've gone with ASUS, but your drive looks pretty solid to me.

Monitor: I am not familiar with BenQ, so I would've gone with a brand like ASUS or LG, but tell me how it works out.

The rest of your parts are basically personal preference, so I don't really know how to give my opinion on it. I kinda assumed that you were using it for gaming because you didn't say what you were going to use it for. You hive a nice build there. Reply on how it works out! Cheers!

The Maximus VI Formula is pretty much my dream mobo, and it was within my budget so I thought, why not? Also, it has wifi which is pretty important to me.

Haha, I decided to go with the Formula because (other than it is my dream motherboard) it was within my budget and had great performance.

Is there a significant performance difference?

Should I go for the Classified or the FTW Edition? FTW is a little cheaper.

No limit.

It has to be a 780 or under, though.

The EVGA FTW edition has a higher clock rate. Should I go for the EVGA because of this?

How much performance would I loose or would I loose any at all by going from:

i7 to i5 2133 memory to 1600 (or 1866) memory GD-65 to GD-45

Thanks, I think I'm going to go with the GD-65

The one main reason I didn't go wight the ASUS was that it did not have easy overclockability.

Is wifi a necessity that would swing me from one motherboard to another though?

Ok thank you for the explanation, I think I'm going to go with the 770 because I need to save that $100 and I don't think I need so much raw power.

Is the 290 better than the 770 2GB?

Thanks! I'll go with the 2GB then.

Thanks for the response. I'll definitely change to the 2GB of ram.

And as for GTA V: A man can dream can't he? Also I'm pretty certain it's gonna come out, maybe around November-ish
