(Generated by PCPartPicker 2013-05-13 13:21 EDT-0400) Few Notes: Yes, I need the 3770k for video rendering. I might wait for gtx 770, not sure yet. Would it be worth the wait? I dont need keyboard, mouse, or OS. Also, the 3770k wont be bought at microcenter so the build total is $80 more than it shows on here. Any revisions or is that the best i can get for $1500?

XFX is just a re brand of Seasonic, just go from Seasonic directly. Although that promo for the XFX is pretty good, it's up to you. Samsung SSD are fanastic. Share g-unit1111 May 13, 2013 11:29:37 AM Switch out your SSD with a Samsung 840 Pro or OCZ Vector otherwise that build looks good to me. Although if you want the NVIDIA 7XX series, you're going to be waiting a while. Production delays on the chips have pushed the cards back to late September, early October at the latest. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
