Obit’s $3560 PC Build
This is the first build I have done for a while, so I thought why not make it a special one. This build stocks one of the latest Intel Core i7’s as well as the new GTX 780. Will provide plenty of grunt for anything you throw at it.
This build has a nice price tag to match as well :P, coming in at $3559.88. The Hard drive space is plentiful, with two 2TB Mechanical Hard drives as well as a 230GB Solid State Drive. Water Cooling included to keep ultra cool.
3Dmark Result can be seen at http://www.3dmark.com/fs/517103 , Note: the 3Dmark test used is FireStrike rather than the usual 3Dmark 11 performance test. There is a massive difference in score between Corey’s $2000 build – (http://www.3dmark.com/fs/522372) and this one (You get that though when there is a $1600 difference).

Also would a 4670k bottleneck SLI GTX 770s. Thanks again.
No this should not happen even with the i5 4670k.
quick question, would the 860i PSU be able to support two 780s instead of the 1200i? Thanks.
From what I can read, The Cooling System on the card (http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=4621#ov) uses 450W alone. So 2 of them is 900W. I wouldn’t expect an 860i to go to well with 2 of them along with the rest of the hardware.
The 860i actually should be able to support two of the 780’s – as per this article ( http://hexus.net/tech/reviews/graphics/55577-kfa2-geforce-gtx-780-sli/ ). I had to do some digging myself though to make sure.
Well HELLO BEAUTIFUL!
You said it man.
