Will the cpu work with this build?

I was looking around while playing to build a pc and stumbled here. I just want to ask if the 3750k with the 760 work with the rest?! Any input will be really awesome!

Oh and I'm going to this from a Samsung qx410 laptop I got back in 10 heh this will prolly be my system for the next 2-4 yrs XD

  1. Yes. The CPU and motherboard are compatible. The graphics card will fit into the case. The CPU cooler will fit as well. So all looks good to me.

    If you haven't bought it yet, you may want to consider Haswell.
  2. Best answer
    All components are compatible. No issue there. I agree with Ksham, to consider Haswell or Haswell refresh if you have budget.

  3. Oooooh thank you very much! The reason why I have the 3570k is because this was a list I put up a long time ago heh xD one thing is the asus z97a better than a z97 version of the extreme6? And is the cx750 not sufficient enough compared to the evga 600?
    Please excuse me if I ask too many questions..

    Extreme VI is ROG series board of Asus whereas Z97-A is not ROG board. Z97 Extreme-VII has not yet been announced. Even Formula VII is expected in markets in Q3 of 2014. As such comparison is not possible. Needless to say Z97-A is a better mobo from Asus. If you are into ROG then get Asus Hero VII or wait for Asus Formula VII
  5. @EasyLover: Extreme6 could be a reference to the ASRock Z97 Extreme6.

    @Bluberry: Both the CX and EVGA B1 series power supplies are low-end. I personally don't recommend either one. I would recommend a XFX TS 550W. The power supply is the most important component in a build. It has to supply power to all components. If the PSU is poorly built, it can crap out under heavy load or worse, blow up by fire or sparks. It is dangerous. The rule of thumb when it comes to power supply is quality over quantity. Quality first, quantity second.
  6. That psu would be more than enough for this rig right? And sorry about that for not clarifying yes I was talking about the asrock z97 extreme6. Which is this one
  7. Yes. It will be more than sufficient for the build that you posted and the one that @EasyLover posted.
  8. My bad as well for not taking into consideration of ASRock extreme series. Read this review on Extreme 6.

    I would recommend Asus Hero VII. Read the review here
  9. Thank you so much to the two of you! (/^-^)/
    One last no two questions... is the hero vii worth the extra 60 over the 97a and after a while I might get another 760 to use will the ts 550 able to power up 2 of the 760?
  10. No; it's not worth the extra price. Alternatively, I would go with a Gigabyte GA-Z97X-Gaming 3. It's just as good.

    For GTX 760 SLI, get this power supply.
  11. Thank you both very much for your time and knowledge! I just went with the gaming 5 since it's 2 more than the 3. Now that everything is all set just need to work my ass off finish this! Thank you again and goodnight!
  12. Hero VII is definitely worth the price. Anyhow, you have made great choice with gaming 5 series. Good luck dear. Glad to assist.
  13. I've been reading a lot of threads this whole time and I still can't quite understand the difference between the 2 and 4 gb versions of the cards. Like since this pc is going to be used for the next 3-5 years would it be better to stick with the 4gb one or go with the $50 cheaper 2gb card? I do plan on getting another one to dual in the future if that helps. Sorry if I'm asking questions again
  14. No issue in asking questions dear. 2GB or 4GB that would largly depend upon if you are gonna use single monitor or multiple monitors with your build, also at high resolution like 4k.

    If you are using single monitor and playing at 1080p then 2GB is adequate. But there is an exception with Watch Dogs. This game requires lot of VRAM and even with 3GB VRAM cards have suffered in giving smooth play at high settings.

    If you are playing at 1080p and using single monitor then stick with 2GB version. Though having more VRAM for future games may come in handy.
  15. Ooooh yeah I'm planning to pay watch dogs with this rig. Another thing I noticed that the 770 is actually within my budget and so there a high chance I'm going with the 770. Will the seasonic 620 be enough for it? And possibly sli down the road? If not what would be a psu for this plan? Thankssss
  16. Seasonic 620 will be ok with single 770. For SLI of two cards you would need 850W PSU
  17. So the difference between 760 sli and 770 sli is that much huh. What 85w0 psu would you recommend that would not break the bank (pref closer to 100 but yeh) that is of not bad quality?
  18. Thank you very much!!!!! Finally gots my list completed without anymore corners cut! Or is there still some cut corners? Idk heres the updated list hahaha

    Another thing is that I read somewhere that the 4th gen cpu works better with 1866 ram than 1600 is that true?
  19. Looks solid. Good luck dear.
