Closed Need help on what to choose for first gaming rig Tags: Chipsets Gaming Cooler Master Motherboards Last response: May 2, 2012 10:37 AM in Motherboards Share zin466 May 1, 2012 2:19:58 AM Ive been choosing parts for my new gaming rig and and having a bit of an issue with which mobo and cpu to pick since the new IB came out. So far i've chosen: 1. I7 2600k 2. Asus P8Z68-V Pro Intel Z68 1155 Motherboard 3. Cooler Master Silent Pro Gold 1000W Power Supply 4. Cooler Master HAF X Flagship Full Tower ATX Computer Case RC-942-KKN1 5. EVGA GTX 570 2560 mb 6. Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 1600MHz DDR3 240-Pin Desktop Memory Now Im stuck whether i should get a new i7 3770k IB with a z77 board or if I should stick with the 2600k. I will mainly be using this for gaming and partially for work. Any advice on the rest of my specs would be appreciated.

There both good items it just depends on your budget. | Report abuse zin466 May 1, 2012 10:07:36 PM Best answer selected by zin466. | Report abuse nikorr Gaming Expert Motherboard Master May 2, 2012 10:37:29 AM This topic has been closed by Nikorr | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Motherboards>Need help on what to choose for first gaming rig> Related ressources: ForumNeed a high tier graphic card(s) for my first gaming rig .
