HyperX Predator M.2 PCIe 240gb or Samsung 960 EVO M.2 256gb

 

On paper Samsung specs are a lot higher.

Eg, read iops for Samsung are near 400000 while Predator are down around 120000.

Not sure if you are going with SLI since you don't list your video card.  If you are not, just be sure the PSU will accommodate a second GPU down the road should you decide to upgrade.  Not saying it won't but best to make sure you're not limited.  Otherwise, looks fine.

Thanks guys. I did not list GPUs indeed. This is because i will reuse my two GTX 970s in SLI.

 

Doug, I am preaty sure this 850W will handle this SLI but you re right, i will check manufacturer's specs on the website. Thanks!

 

GB, agree re Predator. Its just that Samsung is not yet on the market. However i think i should wait for it...

 

Kind regards,

I have an almost identical build - with a single nvidia 970 - runs fine on an old Corsair TX650

 

If you are in doubt about what power supply is needed - check out this site:

The R5 is a fantastic case - 4 x USB on the front panel makes a big difference for hardware controllers that don't like sharing a hub.

Thanks for the link Tony. Great tool. Now i am wondering if 850w is not too much. The load calculated for CPU running at 4,5GHz and GPUs 10% overpowered gives me 624W.

It never hurts to have some headroom with electronics.  You have the makings for a sweet system.  Hope you enjoy it.
