A $3560 PC Build – Obit's PC Build Article June/July 2013

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).
