  1. Either is fine for gaming, more than adequate. I like the better SATA 6Gbps and SATA III for the Z87 (socket 1150) boards, so personally I would go Haswell for that reason.
  2. Get an i5-4670K or i3-4340, which ever one is in your price point and pick out a corresponding Z87 1150 motherboard with good ratings in your price point
  3. IB (3xxx) overclocks about 6% better on average then HW (4xxx) but HW is 10+% faster at stock so IB never quite catches up. In addition, socket 1155 has officially reached end-of-life" status, limiting your future upgrade ability and availability of replacement parts.

    I don’t think there’s any compelling reason to move from an Ivy Bridge or even a Sandy Bridge based system to a Haswell system– there simply isn’t enough performance and feature differential to justify it. On the other hand, if you’re building a new rig from scratch, there’s little point in investing in end-of-life platforms, so going Haswell/Z87 makes sense.


    Id also strongly recommend a board with 2 PCIE 3 slots so as to allow the option of a 2nd GFX card to improve performance and extend system life. This build is $18 over ya $1,000 budget and has A SSD built into the HD, PSU and MoBo capable of adding a 2nd GFX card

    MoBo - $354 - MSI Z87-G45 http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.1440496
    CPU - included - Intel Core i5-4670k

    Case - $150 - Corsair 500R http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.1390812
    PSU - included - Corsair TX750 $20 off w/ promo code EMCXLVN57, ends 10/3

    RAM - $95 - (2 x 4GB) Muskin CAS 9 DDR3-1866 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820226223

    HD - $140 - Seagate SSHD 2 TB http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822178380

    GFX - $260 - MSI Gaming N760 TF 2GD5/OC GeForce GTX 760 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127745

    DVD Writer - $19 - Asus DVD Burner http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16827135304
  4. There really isn't much point of getting a Z87 board if you do not intend to overclock.
  5. Hey Guys , thank you for the quick respond

    but here is the problem

    i bought gpu and the case without power supply

    and i want good power , what power should i buy 500 , 600 , 700 , 730 or 750 from corsiar , thermaltake or cooler master

    and what about the cpu ? i want to upgrade the cpu one/two year/s later

    and i cannot pre order online

    and about the cpu i will not overclock it , should i buy a haswell cpu for the future ?

    thanks
  6. Corsair of 600w or better would be my pick. With the small improvements Intel is making as of late to performance, even an Ivy chip would be fine till skylake.
  7. With Z87 motherboard and i5 Haswell CPU, you don' t need to worry about upgrading in the future. It will already be a very good system. With that graphics card, get a power supply around 700W and it should be good and plenty of power for any possible future upgrades.

    Thank you

    I have the i5-4570 and highly recommend it. Especially if you're not going to be overclocking. IMO it's not worth the extra $40 for the 4670 non-K which is only 200mhz faster and really, you won't notice the difference otherwise. But it's your money. ;) If this is a new system (not an upgrade from a previous Intel platform) then go with the latest technology and go with Haswell. The cost difference is negligible.

    Also you won't have to upgrade this for quite some time. Probably well beyond 3 years at least.

    PSU go with at least 600watts and a good reputable brand and go for one that is at least 80 plus bronze rating. I have the Cooler Master GX RS650w (80 plus bronze) and it's a very good unit for the price.
