So i've been owning my first PC gaming for over 5 years now. So think it's time for me to get a new one.


I'm planning on getting something around 1500 $ this time. A friend recommended me a build on NCIX Canada.


Here are the specs :

CPU :  Intel Core i5 4670K Unlocked Quad Core 3.4GHZ

Motherboards : ASUS Z87-PLUS ATX LGA1150 Z87 DDR3 3PCI-E16 2PCI-E1 2PCI SLI SATA3 USB3.0 DVI HDMI Motherboard

Memory : Kingston HyperX Fury Memory Black 8GB 2X4GB DDR3-1600 CL10 Dual Channel Memory Kit

Video Card

GPU : ASUS GeForce Striker GTX 760 1150MHZ 4GB DDR5 DVI HDMI PCI-E Video Card

Hard Drive : Seagate Barracuda 2TB 7200RPM SATA3 64MB Cache 3.5IN Internal Hard Drive

Power Supply : Corsair CX Series CX750M 750W ATX 12V 80 Plus Bronze Modular Power Supply

Operating system : Windows 8.1


So far it sounds good, I'm probably going to order it Pre-built thought.


I'm not so sure about the video card. Should i get a GTX 770 2GB instead ? Any other suggestions are welcome.

I threw it together here:



At this point I wouldn't buy any GTX700 series since 970 and 980 just came out with far more vram that will be very nice with all these games now asking for 3GB+


Just noticed the 760 is 4GB though. Would still recommend 970. Don't know when the 960 will be out though.

William Dogood: No...not the juice!
