    As for the CPU: It really sounds like an i7-7700K would be the best choice for you then. Ryzen CPUs are good if you either get workstation loads regularly and/or when you go below a certain value budget-wise (<200 bucks). I think Ryzen would not be optimal for you, adn a 6850K would be even less so. Trust me when I tell you that a 7700K will perform better at your chosen task (gaming)  in 99.9% of the time, while costing you less. Which leaves you more cash to spend on a super--duper bling-bling mainboard, if you need all those little extra features. If you still feel like you need something more expensive, I recommend you to wait for Intel to release their Kaby Lake X CPUs (i7-7740K and upwards), they'll probably be even better. As for the PSU; As I said, unless you're planning on getting 3+ high-end GPUs and overclock both all those GPUs and you CPU heavily, 1200W is more than you'll ever possibly be able of using. Invest in a 1000W top quality PSU (e.g. the Super Flower Leadex 1000W with 80+ Platinum), and you'll be more than safe, even if you chose to run 2x 1080 Ti's and a 150W CPU, and overclock them on top. For a single 1080 Ti build, I'd recommend a 550-650W PSU. Add the 300W a second 1080 Ti could theoretically pull (which is almost never going to be the case), and you land at 850-950W. 1000W is the max I'd think about. Last but not least, with a 1200W PSU, you'll not only pay more for the PSU itself, but also while running the rig, because the typical load it would receive would make it very inefficient, meaning it would require more power to deliver than a lower-wattage PSU would at the same load. Please do reconsider, or go for a 3-4x 1080 Ti build straight :mrgreen: Haha well im planning on eventually have 3 of the 32 inch screens so i might have to haha ill keep it in mind though might wait for the new cpus, thanks

    Mostly gaming ive been tossing and turning on the iasue you raised with the 6850k stoll not sure where i stand i might wait for intels new cpus like you said never had Ryzen before nor hear much about them which is why im not hugely keen on them. with the psu its over kill to allow for any future changes and additions i dont mind paying the extra for it

    High pitch noise is most likely the wattage is too high per channel or total for the controller, seen that complaint a few times Having just revied the ml120s and ml140s power draw apparently the Nzxt lx lcd fan controller will do it (id looked for different fans and wattage was to high) whats peoples opinions on that one?

    F1 2014 G27 Users on PC PLEASE READ

    ive always had to race with V-sync on with my g27 otherwise it suddenly pulls left and gives me full 360 steering (try driving a f1 car with full steering quite funny sometimes hahaha)

    A Step Forward

    Honestly i think codies have put a bit more work into this game then people think the handling is far better, the cars are far from glued to the track, the A.I whilst still being pathetic at getting out of the way when needed and very slow on the first lap is improved in their racing ability, the graphics have been touched up and honestly im waiting to find a bug yet, this is the first f1 since probably 2010 that i actually enjoy sitting down and driving the cars is actually challenging and fun personally i think if they follow and build on this for 2015 then 2015 will be an absolutely epic game. btw dont trust "big magazines" they get paid to do it and half of em talk more crap out of their arse in 1 article then a normal people does in their whole life, the only way to judge a game is to play it urself specially racing games.

    Eurogamer review OUCH

    how is a pc a hassle?  you plug it in and dont move it again least it doesnt try and update every 2 seconds and when it does it doesnt stop you from playing for hours lol
