    Hello everyone,

    I'm building a new computer. I have a budget of 1600$ (CAN) for the computer tower itself, I already have a monitor, keyboard, etc.

    I live in Canada, and will be ordering from or It's for 3D modelling and rendering, and other heavy applications.

    Here's what I made :

    Processor/Motherboard - Intel i7-4770k + MSI MPower Z87 (combo pack)

    Video card - Gigabyte GTX770 2Gb

    Memory - Corsair Vengeance 16Gb (2x8) Pc3-12800

    Case - Fractal Design Define R4 (with window)

    PSU - Corsair TX650W 80+ Bronze

    HDD - Seagate Barracuda 1Tb - 7200Rpm

    SSD - Samsung 840 Pro 128Gb

    And that's it! I have a CD/DVD burner and a Wifi card. I'll use the stock heatsink for now, and get a BeQuiet Dark Rock Pro 2 in a few months.

    What do you think of the build ? I want something that is silent and that has good cooling, hence why I chosed the Define R4 and the Gigabyte GTX770.

    What could/should I upgrade to have a better build ?

    Total price : 1540$, 1670$ with taxes and shipping

    Thanks a lot!
