  1. I'd get an SSD into the build say 120GB or bigger, also you need a cpu heat sink/fan, the 3820 doesn't come with one
  2. Yes, this is fine for high end games and will max out most anything you throw at it.
  3. Yep that will play high end games pretty good
    though if your gaming only you would be better served LGA1155 socket based system running on a i5-3570k
  4. Best answer
    First off you'd want an i5(3570k), not an i7. It saves you 100 bucks and you only lose hyper-threading which i doubt you would use.

    Do you plan to encode video or do anything of that sort? If not just stick with 1155.

    Secondly, for a power supply more watts does not equal higher quality, so make sure you choose a good power supply especially if you want to overclock.
  5. Looks good, except for the PSU which may be shady but it's 80+ certified so I'm giving it some slack
  6. There is little point in getting that platform unless you want to run 3 graphics cards and get a 6 core CPU. Otherwise get an 1155 based setup it will perform identically and cost less.
