  1. The 80$ off LGA1150 CPU + mobo on Newegg right now just make it much easier for us to chose the good parts:

    PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant / Benchmarks

    CPU: Intel Core i5-4670K 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor ($239.99 @ Newegg)
    Motherboard: MSI Z87-G45 Gaming ATX LGA1150 Motherboard ($159.99 @ Newegg)
    Memory: Corsair XMS3 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($57.99 @ Microcenter)
    Video Card: Sapphire Radeon HD 7950 3GB Video Card ($259.99 @ Newegg)

    I hope that your case isn't too small for those parts to be put in.

    If you want to OC ASAP and not in the future, consider dropping RAM to 4gb and grab a 30$ Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo instead.
  2. Few question...USA for parts...or your country code so we can find computer parts vendors. If your in the us are you close to a micro center store.

    I noticed that I could get some of the parts for cheaper than some of the sites your had?
    Dont plan on overclocking till its starts struggling with new games so a couple of years or so.
    My case isnt small so im guessing it should fit. If it doesnt then ill just hav to buy a new one.

    Would have been better if you told us that you're from Aus, you know ;)

    I think this setup would do:

    AMD FX-6300 6 Core Black Edition Processor
    ASRock 970 Extreme4 Motherboard
    Kingston HyperX KHX1600C9D3B1K2/8GX 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3
    Gigabyte Radeon HD7950 3GB Overclocked
    Silverstone Strider 500W ST50F-ES

    Sub-Total: $693.00 ( Pccasegear )

    If you want to lower the price then just get 4gb ram instead. RAM is the easiest thing to upgrade later anyway.
  6. Yeah my bad.

    So you think i would be better off with a FX-6300 than an i5?
  7. Since it's 100$ cheaper, why not? That means more money to get a better VGA. You won't lose much gaming performance compared to an i5, anyway.
  8. Better get enermax psu, that silverstone is bad, only 80+ certified and not the best brand. Enermax 80+ bronze certified and good brand

    Ah, nice fine. A bit higher than the Silverstone one in the PSU ranking list.
  10. AMD FX-6300 6 Core Black Edition Processor
    ASRock 970 Extreme4 Motherboard
    Kingston HyperX KHX1600C9D3B1K2/8GX 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3
    Gigabyte Radeon HD7950 3GB Overclocked
    Plus that enermax psu.

    Altgough the enermax pushes my budget a bit it looks like this will be my build.

    Thanks.
