New pc build and this is the last part.
Currently i have a big case, a seasonic m12II 620, 8gb 1600 ram (4x2), 2 750gb hdd. I will be adding a 3570k to this, 1 video card and 1 ssd.
I'm going to order the cpu/mb likely from newegg and I'd like to do it today and want to get the most bang for my buck. The PC will be used to play diablo 3 and serve up movies on the tv, I will likely never run any sli configuration and will not be doing any extreme overclocking, moderate or slight overclocking at most. The most important feature i need from the board is reliability, so if i have to pay an extra $40 for the same features but a better made, more reliable board I'm willing to do that. I've heard the asus boards are pretty much on the top of the heap, but havent ever owned one. Looking to stay under 200 w/ any combo pricing, so I think the highest end board that would fall into that is the asus p8z77-v pro board that will come to 189 w/ the cpu order.
I just dont want to toss out a bunch of extra money for things im never going to use. Any opinions are appreciated, thanks much!
Yeah, I have that one (blue one) myself, they are very stable and quality RAM sticks.
Good choice there.
We got also the same PSU : )
Great minds think alike!
would there be any benefit to upgrading to the extreme6? I see its $25 more but doesn't look to have much of a feature dif, you know offhand if that's may be any better parts or anything? I'm willing to dump the money now to make sure I don't end up having to spend a lot more down the road here.
