  1. do not overclock unless you have a good aftermarket cooler, i recommend a sealed liquid cooler :)
    don't skimp out on the motherboard, spend a good amount on it, its incharge of your whole computer after all :)
  2. whats ur budget and location
  3. I would get a MoBo with dual channel memory and get 2x4GB RAM. And if you have the money you should get a 64 or 128 GB SSD to put your operating system and frequently used apps on because its much faster. Also 850 watts is a lot of power if you have a 7870 and an 3570K. Its not bad but you dont need that much power unless you are using CrossFire or SLI.
  4. budget n location???
