    For the price, i love your components. Excellent build, but don't forget Cooler Master Evo to keep that overclock cool.

    You didn't mention where you live in your post.
    And 3570k >>> 6300.
    But 7870 < 7870 XT.
    So I'd obviously recommend you to look for a 3570k.
  5. Yeah, stick with the 7870XT. And don't sweat not having a microcenter. Most people don't.
    However, look for combo deals on newegg. sometimes they pair a CPU with RAM or motherboard at discount.
  6. You will love this system. Obviously you have done your homework. enjoy.
