    Nay. No reason to pay that kind of money for old hardware. Get an i5-4670K and a Z87 motherboard. Also you don't need 16GB of RAM (assuming the system is for gaming purposes). And then with the money you save upgrade your GPU to a GTX 780TI. Also throw in an SSD and a Noctua NH-U9B in the mix and then I would say it's good to go.

    Awesome, thanks for the advice. This would be a fairly high-end gaming rig, correct?
  3. Make sure you have a good PSU but other than that take G-Unit's suggestion and be god for a couple years.

    The 780TI will max out anything for the next couple years and is a very overclock friendly card.
  5. cut back on the RAM to 2 x 4GB and maybe you can squeeze a SSD in there for the OS. also +1 on the i5 4670k for gaming. i7 will be better for gaming AND say HD photo/video editing..etc
  6. Water cooler is kinda pointless here. Is say stick with a good air cooler then th build is perfect
