Gaming PC Compatible Parts

Hello everyone, I am going to build a gaming PC and so far I've decided on my processor, an Intel i5 3570k and my graphics card, Nvidia GTX 770.

I need some suggestions/recommendations for the other parts I'd need, such as the motherboard. My budget is around $1000 but I don't mind going over as long as I'm getting the best out of my money. Thanks in advance.

    8GB Corsair Vengeance RAM
    Asus Sabertooth X79 Mobo
    Seasonic 860 Watt PSU
    128GB Samsung SSD
    1TB WD Black



    Ok but is there a substitute for that mobo? Because my budget is $1000 and just the video card, CPU and mobo together reaches it.

    Bah, actually that mobo that he put in there (LGA 2011) ain't compatible with your i5-3570K (LGA 1155) so screw that. :lol:

    Look into the AsRock Z77 Extreme4 if you want to overclock. I think that's the cheapest one. If you're not gonna overclock at all then probably just get an H77 one.

    And also, are you planning to SLI in the future? Because I think an 860W PSU is overkill. You can probably do with just 700W or even 600W if not.
  3. that CPU will NOT fit into an X79 mobo get a Z77 like this one Gigabyte GA-Z77X-D3H
    drop the SSD it will not be useful in gaming

    Ok great! I'll do some research on that z77. Also, what exactly is the SSD
    ?
  6. Solid State Drive, its a faster (but much more expensive) alternative to hard drives, but games will not benefit from it so i said drop it

    Actually, it'll speed up loading times on games. So that's one thing. But then again, the expensive price tag ain't worth it, I think.

    Also, cut down a bit on the PSU. And look for an H77 board instead if you're not looking to overclock to save more money.

    Am I the only one to use this site? For me, it's a must to build new rigs lol...it gives you all the big retailer price...it tells you if it's compatible and it has a benchmark for your build!

    Also, the search bar for parts is pretty nice tho!
  10. +1 to PartPicker
    if u don't wanna overclock get the non-K version of the CPU and an H77 board, and keep the stock CPU Cooler
