Hey guys,I'd like to ask for some advice over my new build that I'm planning to buy this november-late october.First off I'm from Hungary and this build is what I have put together after reading up a LOT on forums and stuff like that.

Here is the build: http://.

My budget is 1200 USA Dollars.The build costs 1100 bucks in 'Murrica but here in Hungary It costs something like 1200 bucks

I will be using this PC mainly for gaming.

I am planning on OCing.Not much though.
I really like the parts red and plack color scheme :D 
I have got some part preferences: Intel,Nvidia
Also I absolutely fell in love with this case after seeing it at one of my firends house,so I will probably not change that.

So,I'd like to hear you guyses suggestions on this one.

Thanks in advanced,

Chris

Same speed processor just not the "K" version and unless your all about pushing your pc to the extreme limits by over clocking then you will never notice a difference. Also you can save money on your hard drive by switching to Seagate, just as reliable just cheaper prices, lastly never go with a gigabyte if you can afford an Asus or ASrock, they are better and way more reliable. I also upgraded your power supply to a 750 watt (overkill) power supply so in the future if you want to SLI two cards you will not have to worry about that, plus XFX is a majorly trusted brand. Also please remember to select your best answer so that others may learn from your thread. Remember that you can contact me anytime about any questions or concerns you might have about things in the future. Thank you for your time and have a pleasant day/night.

Also i would advise against getting the new "AMD" graphics card in the beginning as with most electronics they will have bugs in the 1st and 2nd generations.

Trust me, your second build is really well balanced and will last you some time in the future. Try adding a 120GB SSD in your build, though not absolutely required, it ll load things in a jiffy

K your choice, listen to someone that has been building pcs for years and studying them for years, or the people who "just want best answers" either way do what you want its your money. Enough said, I'm out of this thread, apparently saving people money is just to hard for some people to accept, oh well.

Yea dude. k series cpu aren't needed at all. The extra price and the level of overclockability (that too with the extra tdp) doesn't cut it. The perfomance difference is marginal too

This isn't true, a cheaper motherboard and CPU always usually makes the difference, sure most games use the GPU for most load, but they also don't function worth anything if they don't have a decent CPU and motherboard for the backup. Also the motherboard and CPU you picked out has a nice color scheme, however thats about all they have....any of the boards that I suggest would be just as good at over clocking as a 300.00+ board.
