More about 1st build
  1. i would go for a gtx 760 everything else seems fine but i really dont know the prices in bangladesh
  2. Don't buy a z77 motherboard with a locked processor, buy an h77 motherboard.
    You also don't have to buy nearly such an expensive one. - the 5h and sabertooth are overkill even for an i5-3570k.

    Go with the 760 like hopelessnoob suggested - it's far better for less money.

    Since the price between PSUs doesn't seem to be much, go with the HX; it's much better made.

    Consider buying a small SSD to put windows on; it does make a very noticeable, nice difference.
  3. Here

    A ~$1080 after shipping including a GTX770 with 1080p monitor. You could really throw in a 128GB SSD if you still have extra left.

    im not sure whether gtx 760 is available here. have to check the market.

    cant buy SSD right now. already thought about it, but budget is tight. so if i get 760 then SSD have to wait for a while.

    any suggetions for a cheaper mobo with sli support?
  7. That is an excellent motherboard. Why do you need SLI support? It's more cost effective to sell the used card and buy a new one, especially since you're buying cards that are already starting to disappear - it'll be hard to find another 660 in a while.
  8. Best answer
    Good board and good CPU choice, Cygor, but much simple overclock with asrock board, with non-K OC feature for extra 400MHz. But you may also require cooler like Xigamatek Gaia or CM TX3 to cool down your chip.
    ASRock Z77 Extreme 3 or 4 is most recommended.
    Buy either graphic card that cheaper in your country among your choices stated above.
