Would everything be compatible?
Now I think I've arranged a pretty decent and awesome build here, but then again I am no expert.
Very nice GPU with the new 770 and with a MOBO that supports SLI so I can add another 770 in a year or something.
(That's also why I went for the 750W PSU, to be ready for a SLI).
I think the R4 is a really decent case.
I would like to get some advice as well on if I would want the Asrock Z77 Extreme3 or the Extreme4. It is only 15€ deerer. But what would I get for it? An eSata slot what I probably will never use?
Now I know this build doesn't include an SSD.
I do want an SSD, but it's not a requirement for me to start off. I can buy an SSD maybe two or three months later.
If I want to add an SSD to my build now, it's going to be a ~120GB one, due to budget.
If I add it a little later, it can be a ~250GB one.
How much would I want my SSD to be?
Operating system and my favorite games I suppose.
Oh and also, would you want to get a PCI audio card?
Now there is still some room in the budget.
Any thoughts, concerns and advice is greatly appreciated.
Better go for Haswell i5 4670K and hence the Z87 motherboard. That would be more future proof. I don't see why anyone would put so much money on a dead LGA 1155 socket. Haswell is the way to go buddy. There is no point in going for Ivy Bridge.
- All links are to a store based in Ireland (saves on shipping among other things)
- Upgraded CPU to Haswell
- Case remains the same but swapped PSU to something much better
- Went with Z87 motherboard and EVGA GPU
