    OK thanks a lot for the quick response. So there is no huge substantial difference in terms of gaming between the two processors?

    No, you will not notice any increase in performance regarding the 4770k, check this out for more details http://www.ocaholic.ch/modules/smartsection/item.php?itemid=1061 . By the way, i think this psu is overkill for these specs( if you consider getting the 4670k), unless you are planning to sli in the future and dont want to spend money on new psu.

    Thanks for the link, it was helpful. I do not intended on having SLI in the future, which PSU do you recommend? someone had told me that the TX series was better than the CX.
  7. Since your cpu is consuming 100W, your gpu 200W, and some other things will draw up power, then i dont think what so ever that you will need a psu about 650W (especially you mentioned you have no intentions for SLI). Here are some high quality 650w psus, http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817182132

    Thanks a lot for the reply I will look at them, I can save some cash now as well!
  9. There's not much difference between the i7 4770K and the i5 4670K with respect to gaming. They'll both perform excellently, and they're both unlocked processors so you can squeeze more juice out of them if you need it.

    All in all, it looks like you've got the right idea in terms of the not-so-easily-replaceable hardware (MB, CPU). The H80i will do an excellent job of cooling the Haswell (which runs hot anyway), up to about a ~4.5GHz overclock. The H80i is a thick cooler since it has twice the fans, and twice the radiator as it's younger brother (H60), so make sure you can mount it safely in the case without interfering with anything inside.
