Price goes little higher but its good
i5 3570k have hd4000 inbulit + pcie 3.0 support that i5 2500k not having

May 14, 2012, 6:14 PM
what's name of manufacture and series that'll help me
May 14, 2012, 6:32 PM
how about this one?
May 15, 2012, 1:17 PM
I checked it it's quiet good but thing is it's z68 not z77 if you put IB in z68 mobo it'll not boot up until you upgrade bios to support IB but it needs SB
May 15, 2012, 1:19 PM
Asrock z77 extreme 4 is in price same as above but it's z77 instead z68
May 15, 2012, 1:22 PM
Are you already bought i5 2500K SB or ?
If yes then also take z77 cause it'll run them bot without need of flashing
May 15, 2012, 2:06 PM
just checked microcenter center again,. they got the asrock ext 4 z77 u recommended in stock again. i should hurry there after work.

will this psu work well with the 3570k, asrock ext 4 mobo and future 7850 xfire upgrades?
May 15, 2012, 4:13 PM
That'll work fine but if you mean crossfire then it'll not gonna work at 700w
May 15, 2012, 4:16 PM
May 15, 2012, 4:19 PM
well your gpu requirements needs 600w i would highly suggest you to get 1000w but 850 will also good
