  1. in most cases, at stock, an FX-8320 doesn't fare much compared to an i5 in gaming (Skyrim, Arma II&III. SC2 being the most severe case), though they still meet acceptable performance for the price. in some games, usually third-person action games (Sleeping Dogs, Tomb Raider) & some not so demanding FPS (CoD, Call of Juarez) from what i've seen, performance don't differ that much, if not completely equal.

    note that price for the 3570K at Microcenter is pick up only. consider a 4670K if they don't costs that differently. if you're picking up from a nearby Microcenter, the 4670K costs 189.99 as well.

    if you're sticking with the 3570K & the Z75 board, just don't expect much off the latter. being a budget Z75, it has a decent enough no. of chokes for a stable, mild OC. for the price, i do have to question the quality of those chokes. if you're going with a 4670K, you may be able to get an H87 board for a few dollars more & OC with it provided it doesn't come with Intel's update that restricts OCing an unlocked CPU via multiplier. alternatively, if you're not looking to OC straight away, you can drop the Hyper212 EVO for now and get it a month or two later, & get a decent Z77/Z87 for ~$110 for the time being.

    recheck for any up to date RAM deals on a 2x4GB DDR3-1600 kit. there should be some under $65. deals changes every day.
  2. Here are some other builds I found. I know nothing about Desktops. I'm a laptop person.

    if you're looking to save up, you're better off ordering from multiple sites to shave off a few dollars.
  4. Nope, just looking for something I can upgrade later down the road. ATM I only have so much money. maybe some with SLI
  5. I also want to get i7 down the road. Not sure how long the GTX 770 will last

    I'd take the final build except for the power supply, would replace it with CORSAIR CX600M here: http://www.amazon.com/Corsair-Modular-Bronze-ATX12V-CX600M/dp/B00ALYOPSS/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1397560163&sr=1-1&keywords=corsair+cx600m
    good luck! :D
