Fill out this form and then ask again, helps a lot so you can get the most out of your build:

pproximate Purchase Date: e.g.: this week (the closer the better)

Budget Range: (e.g.: 300-400) Before / After Rebates; Before / After Shipping

System Usage from Most to Least Important: (e.g.: Folding@Home, gaming, surfing the internet, watching movies)

Are you buying a monitor: Yes / No



Parts to Upgrade: (e.g.: CPU, mobo, RAM) **Include Power Supply Make & Model If Re-using**

Do you need to buy OS: Yes / No
Please note that if you're using an OEM license of Windows, you will need a new one when buying a new motherboard.

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: (e.g.: newegg.com, ncix.com -- to show us selection & pricing)

Location: City, State/Region, Country - we need to know where these parts are being assembled and whether there are good store-only deals available

Parts Preferences: by brand or type (e.g.: I would like to upgrade to Intel CPU)

Overclocking: Yes / No / Maybe

SLI or Crossfire: Yes / No / Maybe

Your Monitor Resolution: (e.g.: 1024x768, 1280x1024, 1440x900, 1600x1200, 1680x1050, 1920x1080, 1920x1200 or if you're upgrading please state what you'd want to get)

Additional Comments: (e.g.: Need to have a window and lots of bling, I would like a quiet PC. Please also list specific software or games you're using)

And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: (e.g. I'm having trouble running game X or my PSU broke)

A 3770k for gaming? Are you ignorant or foolish? An i7 is an i5 with HT-ing. HT-ing is either useless or detrimental to games. An i5 would serve you better.

And then, why would you get a quad core now? The PS4 has 8 cores, so most likely, any ports will also use a substantial number of cores. I say get this combo instead:

AMD FX-8320
ASRock 970 Pro3

You'll save a butt-load of money for a rather paltry performance decrease; this can be negated by getting an aftermarket cooler and overclocking.

You can also find 7970's for the same price as a 670. I say go get the 7970 instead.

Hi the reason I want the i7 is because I do YouTube editing Sony Vegas and fraps and I also heard a lot of bad things with the and 8 core

Yes it's a great build.A few tips Core i5 3570K. For those who know me and have me do their builds, you’ll know that it’s just about the best processor you can get for the money today. With plenty of performance, top notch overclocking capability and enough horsepower to run any game you throw at it, the choice is a no brainer.The 670 and 7970 perform basically the same at stock up to 1080p resolution, trading blows depending on the game. The 7970 most likely will OC better and it will murder the 670 at high resolution (and has way more compute power), the 670 gives you CUDA , PhysX, TXAA, FXAA, ADap. Vsync etc and lower power draw. Both are solid buys.I have two 670's and love them i don't have any issues.If you still can't decide which card to take try looking at the games that you play or specific features that you want.If cost really matter to you then you might want to go with whatever is cheaper to you. HardOCP did a full review on adaptive vsync, was impressed with it if you want to know further details about ihttp://www.hardocp.com/article/2012/04/16/nvidia_adapti...


Why not the i7 3770K you may ask? Well the i7 3770K merely adds Hyper-Threading and a higher clock speed to the equation. Though these two improvements are fantastic in CPU intensive tasks such as video encoding and 3D modeling, in gaming scenarios it doesn’t really do a whole lot. Games these days are much more graphics intensive than CPU intensive, so it’s a much better idea to invest the extra dough into the graphics card.

That said, those of you out there looking to do live streaming or other tasks which require any sort of video encoding, feel free to pick up an Intel Core i7 3770K instead.

im with majincry get a 8350 and 7970. New consoles are using amd, so expect new games to actually utilize amd parts. you should definetly buy the parts all together so if you have a non working part you will know and be able to send it in. Also if you have more money to spend buy dual 7970's and youll be maxing out games for years to come. (fyi i can record minecraft with 256x256 hd texture pack and maxing out all advanced settings using optifine and i record with fraps 60 fps constant, if you get a 8350/7970 youll definitely be able to no hiccups)

Not only is this rude but it reeks of fanboy motivated writing. More games are coming out that are taking advantage of treading technology so who know's the bloke may benefit from and i7.

Yes, right now the i5-3570k is absolutely the best bang for the buck. However, if you want to protect yourself from some unforseen variables you can get the i7-3770k- in the end its your money.

Here's the thing, I would stay with the i7 (im paranoid and like to cover my bases), and put some of that extra 550 in a 680 (as others have recommended you put more money in your GPU). The caveat to that, however, is that 75% of the people on this site will say "dont go with the 680, it only gives you 5% more graphics performance for 25% more cost!"

So where are you supposed to put that money? The answer is, wherever you want it.
