I need a computer for 3d rendering and slight gaming and ive been researching alot and reading up and watching tutorials. I was hoping to keep it around $1000, note that this is going to be my first build and i need advice on options based past series of chipsets and so on.

cpu: I7 3770k Ivy Bridge $332

mobo: Gigabyte z77-ud5 $200-$235? (or ud4)

gpu: Kepler based video card around $270?

cpu cooler: Phanteks PH-TC14PE $90 or Corsair H100 (if i get the Carbide 500r) $120

ram: 8gb ddr3 1600mhz $50

optical drive: DVD drive $20

psu: Corsair tx 750 $100 [bought]

case: NZXT Gamma $35 [bought] (will probably upgrade to the Corsair Carbide 500r in white)

monitor: Two acer 21.5in monitors [already own]

Mouse keyboard and OS already own.

It's approx. $997 without tax and shipping. and with the h100 and 500r approx. $1147

If anything you know of that is going to be released in the april-may that would be usefull to me please inform me and critique my build. Thank You.

We can not really comment or suggest on hardware that has not been released and tested.

You have jumped the gun by 4 months.

Why do you want a $120 cpu cooler? Do you plan on OCing the processor?

You will learn to stop assuming things if you stick around long enough.
