Hey guys, been researching a build to replace my old computer for a couple of months now and wanted to run the parts by you to some feedback. I'll be using the pc for video/photo editing, storing/streaming my media collection and general office work. I wanted it to be fairly high end as I want to be able to run it for the next five years or so without having to make any major upgrades. I'll give a rational for why I choose each part. This will be my first build so any feedback is appreciated. I plan to start buying parts (case, PSU) in May and begin the build in August/September. Thanks again for your feedback!
CPU: i7-5830k- picked a six core chip since I'll be editing and rendering. Choose to go with this over the 5820 since I'll get 40 pcie lanes as opposed to 28. Figured this would be better for future expansion.
Cooler: be quiet Dark Rock Pro 3- don't really want to go with watercooling as I fear leakage. Saw very good reviews for this cooler with the only negative being the installation. Linus from linus tech tips made it look easy so I decided to go with it.
Motherboard: At first was considering the Gigabyte ga-x99p-sli, but am thinking the Asus Deluxe or Asus x99e-ws would give me more options for future expansion (more storage, sound cards, etc.). I'll likely go with one of the Asus boards as of now.
Memory: Cosair Vengence LPX 32gb (4x8gb)- guess ram doesn't really matter as long as it's from a major brand. Decided to go with 32gb over 16gb since some of the projects I'll be working on will involve 4k video and the extra ram will help.
Storage: Samsung 850 evo 250gb, Samsung 950 pro 512, WD Red 4tb(x3)- the 850 will be the os drive and store the programs (adobe, office, etc.); the 950 will house my project work; the WD drives will be used to store my media collection and I'll stream it to my tv using plex. I was going to either build or buy a nas to do this, but figured I might as well use my main rig to do it since it'll be on must of the time anyway giving me access to the files for streaming.
GPU: EVGA gtx 980 Ti- using the rig for editing and wanted a good card to help with that. Don't plan on gaming, but again trying to be future minded.
PSU: EVGA SuperNOVA P2 750W 80+ Platinum- wanted a good psu to power everything. Don't think I'll need a 1000w one even considering future expansion, but maybe I should get an 850w just to be sure?
Case: Phanteks Enthoo Pro- really like the looks of the case and it'll fit the Asus x99e-ws if I decide to get that board. Either way it should fit my needs.
Monitor: Definitely want to go ultrawide 3440x1440. Will probably get the Dell U3415 or LG 34uc87.
