  1. I'll be interested. What kind of designs do you have in mind?
  2. Just noticed how overpriced that TX650 is... I would replace it with one of these: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/rosewill-power-supply-capstone650 http://pcpartpicker.com/part/seasonic-power-supply-ssr650rm http://pcpartpicker.com/part/rosewill-power-supply-capstone750 http://pcpartpicker.com/part/seasonic-power-supply-ssr750rm http://pcpartpicker.com/part/seasonic-power-supply-s12g750
  3. 650w is enough for two 780s. You really only need a quality 450w PSU to run a single 780.
  4. Yes it is very solid. It has 8 true phases and uses some of the same drivers as the Extreme board ($100 more). More details can be found on this list: http://www.sinhardware.com/images/vrmlist.png

  6. Looks like a solid build to me :) 650w is perfectly capable of two 770s, if you want to add another one in the future.
  7. Um I'm too familiar with the world of water cooling, so I might not be able to help you with much :( I just know you need to have a res, a pump, and a few radiators lol. Air cooling is still a great option and it's maintenance free
  8. A custom loop is better for thermals and noise since you choose each part of the loop individually, though it requires a lot of work and maintenance. An AIO is like the H100i, H50, etc. It's pre-filled with fluid and super easy to install with no maintenance. The downside is that they are usually louder since you can't replace their pump and they usually ship with mediocre fans. Also they only work with CPUs out of the box though you could buy a Kraken G10 to install one on the GPU.

  10. The 780 is definitely worth the $500. It's much faster than the 280x or the 770. If you like AMD you could change the 780 for the 290x. Liquid cooling isn't necessary if you aren't overclocking but since you did choose the 4770k I assumed you were going to overclock it.

  12. That is actually a pretty solid build. You could probably buy a lower wattage PSU if you aren't planning to go SLI and save a little bit. Other than that it looks great.
  13. Ok if you can afford and justify the price your build should be fine after you change that CPU to a 4930k.
