CORSAIR 800D (I plan on watercooling in the future, and this will last me a long time, so it's worth the investment
WD 1TB BLUE
ASUS VX238H (1ms response time monitor)
ASUS GTX 770
INTEL i7 3770k
CORSAIR AX 850 with individually sleeved red cables ($60 extra)
G Skill RipJaws 8gb (2x4)
COOLER MASTER HYPER 212 (Just to last me until I pull $400 together for my watercooling loop)
SAMSUNG 840 120GB SSD
4x Corsair SP120mm fans to match the black and red theme of the build
Windows 7 (Have to buy it for $85 because I don't have my disc anymore )
Aesthetics were important to me in this build and I picked up what I thought I would want/need. I will mainly be playing bf4 whenever It comes out so I figured a 770 could push ultra at 60 fps ( doesn't necessarily need 4x MSAA).
Any additional things that could make this build better for around the same price? Thanks?
The new Intel Haswell chipset is the newest but that doesn't necessarily mean better. I'd stick with the 3rd gen 3770, the price difference inst worth the slight advancement the the Haswell has over the Ivy Bridge chipset.
Yes definitely get the new GTX 7xx, Im a little partial to EVGA but they are worth the money. That seems like a very solid build, you'll be very happy with that setup.
