Why are you going with that i7 3820? That is way overkill for gaming. My i7 is way over kill for gaming. Are you going to do any hyper threading? The i5 2550k is more than enough for the type of gaming of to day.
The i7 doesn't even use 40%, and that is running full out. With your liquid cooling get the 2x 120mm push and pull fan. You will wish you had gotten that. Last but least your PSU 800w
There are certin brands you want don't get the Xtrem gear PSU 800w. These are the brand names you want to get. Corsair, Antec, Seasonic, and XFX. But I think Cyberpower only offers Corsair.
Do not get the thermaltake PSU either. Oh the case you should get a full size case. Because later on down the line you are going to wish you had gotten the bigger case. I have 7 case fans in my full tower.
All my temps stay very cool. Other than that you have the makings of a fine rig. I would have said something about your GPU but you are getting two of them so you should be good. Good luck to you on this build.
thanks i'll check into the psu and liquid cooling , but i figure i'll stick with the i7 i run a macro on several clients with 7-10 accounts at a time on an mmo that i play and i want to be able to also still be able to play diablo 3 while those are going, just want to be sure i'll be fine and stick with the i7, plus on the black pearl build that i'm using they dont offer i5 .. also thanks for the input appreciate it
Processor may be overkill, but think of the future man I overclocked my i7 2600k to 4.4ghz and did not gain 1 fps from doing so with my gtx 570 running overclocked as well. This makes me confident this processor will last me another 4 years These are some fast chips.
Id go with at least a 2600k, I made the mistake of buying a mid/low range CPU about 4.5 years ago and it blew up in my face this fall lol. It had a good run, but if I had gotten a quad core I would probably still be using it :P
mustachio27 said:also do you think it would be better to get 1 NVIDIA GeForce GTX 570 HD 2.5GB 16X PCIe Video Card rather than 2x AMD Radeon HD 7770 1GB 16X PCIe Video Card??
I don't know. I guess you could find bench marks to compare. I think two of the HD 7770 in CF are about the same of the 570. This benchmark only shows 570 vs 7770. But two of the 7770 would be just about even.
cyberpower and all similar companies are so funny. extreme i7 cpu solutions go great with 7770 gpu's right?
At least you'd never have to worry about bottlenecking.
And OP no, that is a horribly unbalanced build with the lion's share of the budget being spent on the parts that they managed to get OEM deals on. Listen to DM186. He's on the right track on this topic.
