4K PC Build Help!


#1

Hello all! I’ve been a console gamer for so many years, and now it’s finally time for me to switch over from console to PC. I decided to go for a beautiful 4K build, and after doing some extensive research, I’ve managed to grab me a case and motherboard, but I refuse to buy other parts because… I KNOW NOTHING XD

Is anybody here tech smart with building a PC, or anything? I would like to have a convo to confirm the parts I have listed down will make my PC run 4K resolution on a smooth 60FPS.


#2

Important first question. What…is your budget. Also, can you link your case and mobo?


#3

Budget is wide open, so don’t worry about that.

As for motherboard, I got ( ASUS Z170-A ) and the case ( Corsair Graphite Series 780T Full Tower )


#4

These are already purchased items?


#5

Yes, were they bad options? :sweat_smile:


#6

Oh, no just wanted to make sure that everything is compatible! I’ll throw out my suggestions and then the forum and pick it apart and fix anything I may have missed. :smile:


#7

I know you said budget is wide open, but do you really need a 4K gaming set up?


#8

No, I dont NEED it, but I do want it. I absolutely adore a game in it’s max settings, especially Rise of the Tomb Raider

@TheMountainThatRoars Alright, thanks so much! I would have done this myself, but I barely know much about PC, besides a VERY little about graphics cards.


#9

I thought Rise of the Tomb Raider was an Xbox exclusive? :open_mouth:


#10

Good enough for me.


#11

Timed Exclusive.


#12

Is it? o.O I thought the last one was a timed exclusive only


#13

Oh okay! That’s awesome!! :smile:


#14

Here’s my guess. This is based off a build I am working on, codenamed “Behemoth”.

@RCSRex @LaggerCZE and @Slewey Care to pick it apart?

Would this be a good gaming PC?
#15

I think this is too subtle.I mean if the budget is wide open i could go for a Titan or 980ti SLI

Again if the money aint no problem ;p


#16

Fair enough!

#17

Now thats more like it.I would also put the Gigabyte G1 ones since they are more OC’ed if im not mistaken.But its not a big deal.

Now all you need is an expensive monitor and the PC is ready for 4K


#18

He already has the MOBO in that build. Same with the case.

As for the monitor…


#19

Oh my, that’s an expensive monitor


#20

Also, @Kawaii_Dumpling if you do get this or something close…I want a build video.

I want the computer too…but I could live vicariously through the build video.
