  1. What do you want to use it for?
  2. If you build this yourself save some money and buy the intel i7 3960x
    BTW this seems like the ingredients for a badass system so i would go and get 2x8gb ram so it is upgradeable.
    get the samsung 840 pro 256gb or 512gb ssd
    ditch the overclocking service and do it yourself, get rid of the intel safe tuning thing
    also dont cheap out on a cooler and get something like a hyper 212 evo or some good liquid cooling.

    How is that going to save money?

    If gaming is the primary use for this PC you don't come out ahead with an X79 rig.
  4. If this is just for gaming/surfing/normal day to day, swap out for a Z77 chipset with a 3570K to save some money and get the same performance.

    Are you running multiple larger monitors in games? If not, either get a 2GB 670 or a 3GB 7970 - the 680 is a lot more with little gain in performance.

    Don't need faster than 1600MHz dual channel ram - no real world difference.

    You'd be fine with a 750W bronze power supply, even with SLI or CF.

    Do you need a BR burner or just a DVD burner? Backing up to a HDD is faster and more cost effective.

    If gaming and no media (storing music or movies) I'd get a 250GB SSD and leave the HDD out completely.
  5. no i know you dont need x79, even a 3570k would be good enough for games, just saying that if he builds himself instead of cyberpower he could afford more powerful parts.

    That's definitely true but a $1K CPU will not save you money and you won't come out ahead by purchasing one on a gaming rig. Too much investment for very little performance gain. Better would be to get a GTX Titan or a pair of GTX 670s.
  10. Any time!

    One other thing - look at the pics of the various available GPUs - do NOT get one with a single blower-style fan. They are extremely loud under load with little thermal room to raise the clockspeeds. Look for one with a 2- or 3-fan setup (Gigabyte Windforce, ASUS Direct CUII, etc). I regret getting a reference cooled card every time I fire up a game.

  15. Only need to post the revised build once ><. No on that mobo for any reason. A $140 ASRock Extreme4 will perform with 1-2 frames in games. See this:
    http://www.anandtech.com/show/6697/asrock-fatal1ty-x79-champion-and-x79-professional-review-from-a-gamer-to-gamers/11
    "High end" mobos are a complete ripoff unless you need the PLX chip to run 3 or 4 GPUs.

    The hyperthreading of the 3770K gets you nothing in most games, a couple frames in others. It's not a hedge against next gen consoles since they will likely be 8-core at 1.8GHz (still TBD). If that's the case, the 4-core 3570K at 3.6 will still be able to keep up.

    SRT is a waste in such an expensive build. You'd be so much better off with a real SSD.

    Again, that 680 is a complete ripoff for the 5% or so performance gain on the 670 or equal performance from the 7970.

    No reason to pay them to overclock. Their "extreme 20% OC" is only 4.2 and easily reachable by even an untrained monkey (like myself).

    Still, it's your dime and a nice system!
