I am looking at getting the 770 because it's a cheap alternative to the Titan and 690 and can still run most games at high graphics and if i need to i can SLI/ or wait for their 800series to release next year. Anyone have any info that can help me with making sure this would be a great steup?

Here's some benchmarks.

Overall, the 770 seems to be a slight improvement to the 680 at a lower price, so it's a great deal right now.


Thanks for the article. The 770 does seem to be the best of the 700 series for the price offered. Now i just need to find a compatible PSU, CPU, Motherboard and I'll be fine.

Give me a budget and all of the parts you need and I'll come up with a build for you.

Well then, it looks like you've got it pretty much handled. I prefer the aesthetics of the nzxt phantom 820 myself, but case choice is all about preference. Any questions I could help with?

I'll check out the case you prefer. I just like the futuristic and modular case that thermal offers.
Well all i really need for now is to fix any compatiblity issues i may have with what i chose. And size dimensions if they fit for the case i want. Also a compatible motherboard for everything. Asus and AsRock seem to be my best choices.. idk what board to choose though that offers the best feautures.

Did check this out- i like the design and how it draws air in the front and out the back.

One thing you forgot was a cpu cooler. If you want to do liquid cooling, check out the corsair hydro H100i. If not, look at the noctua D14 or the phanteks PH-TC14PE.

Pretty much any cpu cooler will fit in a full tower case like the level 10 gt or the phantom 820, so there shouldn't be any compatibility issues with the cooler.

As for the motherboard, I'd definitely go asus if you're looking for a high end board. If not, the decision gets more difficult. What do you want to spend on it and do you ever see yourself doing more than 2-way sli?

Ok I'll check up on thoise 3 CPU coolers you just showed me. Case design is always picky for me. The Limited Edition Level 10s they made i miss...but i found that your Nzxt and StealthMachines makes good cases to.
I know a CPU heat sync and thermal paste is a must. Well i can spend upwards to 400 or so on a motherboard, but if i can find one thats cheaper and offers close to the same I'll go for that. I just know Asus seems to be adding a lot more protection/ plating to their boards lately. I will most likely be running a 2way SLI in the future, and i need a board with a 1150socket, and that's compatible with a Haswell CPU.

Normally the z87 sabertooth would be fine, but it doesn't support your memory's speeds natively, so I can't recommend it.

Instead, here are a couple awesome asus z87 motherboards that would be great for your system:

I would choose the Maximus VI because it is geared more toward gamers instead of professional users, has most of the features of the deluxe, and has a lower price.

Checked out the Gamers Republic motherboard and you're right, it offers most the feautures especially the ones I'd need vs the professional work or so. Added it to my notes of which motherboard to def look at buying. Thanks for the info.
