Nice rig. By the way i see you upgrade your PC you will be doing many audio upgrades :D . Have you listened to the HD800 or the TH-900. My 2 favorite headphones with my PC.

Depends on what sound signature you like.

 

If you like HPs with a strong low-end frequencies and a full sound around the $500 mark i like the Denon D5000, TH-600.

 

If you like HPs with a more neutral sound sig i like the HD650, HE500, 

 

And a tad over the $500 mark ($700 used) i like the LCD2 and Beyerdynamic T1.

 

Each headphones is different, you have to find the one(or 2 in my case) that best fits your needs and sound preference. Its a great journey to audio bliss. But so so good when you get there. Enjoy.

 

PS dont forget about your source/dac/amp. Without a good quality source any of these great headphones will sound like crud.

Such an awesome rig. +Kudos

Wow there are some serious systems going on in here!! My rig barely holds a candle. I'm guessing these are all pretty much directed at gaming?

Mine's way back. It was built for light gaming but is used mainly as a workstation/Photoshop/anything-else-I-can-think-of.

 

Gaming lost it's appeal around the time I built it.

Here are some pics of my little slice of tech heaven.

 

3930K on Rampage IV Extreme with 3 GTX Titans in Tri-SLI all water cooled and overclocked.

3 2560x1440 120Hz monitors running 4320x2560 in portrait surround 

 

Funny thing is I dont even game that much anymore. Only some light BF4 at times(still amazing with this setup). 

In the process of selling some Titans to fund some more audio upgrades. :beerchug:

Hotdun I just realized your computer looks like a time bomb.

post #8922 of 9452

going over to a friends tomorrow to assemble my new tower, parts list

 

Asus p8z77 v pro lga 1155 intel z77 motherboard

samsung 120 gig SSD for OS and 500 gig SSD for storage

intel core lga 1155 i7 3770 processor

corsair vengeance 16 gb ddr31600mhz ram

NZXT phantom 410 tower case in white

Corsair RM series 850 watt power supply

Samsung blue ray drive

VGA asus gtx 760 video card

 

I'm excited, it will definitely be an upgrade from my HP touchsmart that is like 5 years old and barely survived a car stop sign demolition derby

 

probably more PC than I'll ever need since all I'll do with it is play music movies and surf the web

Awsanderson you know you don't need a dedicated graphics card for only surfing and music. You can use the 3770k integrated graphics. If there might be some gaming in your future then your rig would work out great.

Yes you just use your hdmi or DVI output on your motherboard I/O panel. Also hate to spring this on you the day before install, but your PSU is extreme overkill. Your PC setup (minus the 760) will only pull a max of 200-250 watts from the wall. I would go with this Corsair 430w (for $19.99 after rebate) and that will cover plenty of upgrades you happen to do in the future, including a dedicated graphics card. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?SID=B8f6MqDTEeOIZ-r7UEsVTAgTj3_MKFz3_0_0_0&AID=10440897&PID=1225267&nm_mc=AFC-C8Junction&cm_mmc=AFC-C8Junction-_-cables-_-na-_-na&Item=N82E16817139026&cm_sp=


I understand if want to go ahead and put your rig together and it won't hurt if you use your 800w PSU, just trying to save you some cash so you can put it towards audio. smily_headphones1.gif
