Hi guys. Long time reader, first time poster. I come to you guys with some questions that may have been asked before but as you all know all builds and bugets are different. I'm building a new pc which is going to be used for gaming, photoshop & video editing (Sony Vegas). Here's what I have.
PSU - PC Power & Cooling Silencer MK III Silencer 850W
Mobo - ASRock Z77 Extreme4
CPU - i5 3570K
HDD - Seagate Barracuda 1TB x2
For the RAM I have GEIL 2GB PC3 10660 x4 that I'm going to use untill I can buy something better.
Now here are the questions.
For this kind of build, which type/brand/model would you recomend? I want to get two 8gb cards so that in the future I can upgrade to 32gb in the future.
I know I need a GPU, which one would you guys recomend for my needs? I was tempted by the GTX 670.
As for the case im using a simple mid tower I have which I know im going to upgrade in the future. I really dont know anything about overclocking, should I look into this?
As for a budget, each part will be purchaed individually so a $300 -$400 for each part (ram x4 counting as one) is ok.
Thanks in advance for every and all the advice I get.
I was looking at the cpu coolers linked but reading about them in combination with the board it turns out that it will not fit well with 4 ram cards (I haven't decided about upgrading to 32 gb). As an option I was thinking about the Corsair H100i. Would anyone recommend this type of cpu cooler?
About the ram cards. If I decide to overclock the pc, would the G.Skill Ripjaws X Series recommended work with and without overclocking?
Looking at the gpu I saw a lot of diferent brands with thw GTX 770. ASUS, EVGA, MSI, ZOTAC, Galaxy to name a few. Are they all the same or do they differ? Should I get 2 for better results?
