Hello,

Here is my current desktop which i will be rebuilding. :

Coolermaster Haf 932 case
AMD Phenom X4 9950 Black Edition Quadcore 2.66ghz
Coolermaster V8 heatsink
8gb PC 800 DDr2 Ram
Asus M3a Motherboard
Nvidia GTX 560 ti
OCZ Summit 128 GB SSD
2 X 1.5 TB Seagate Barracuda 7200RPM 32mb buffer
LG Bluray burner
Antec 500 Watt power supply
HP 30 inch 2560X1600 IPS Display

I am rebuilding this computer for diablo 3..i am aware that diablo 3 is not going to need such hardware to run at max settings but i do not want any reason to lag and like to do things the right way.

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. I am going to be building a new desktop gaming computer with in the next few days. The processor i will be using is going to be a i7 3770K processor. I did not choose which motherboard yet..I am looking between The Asus Sabertooth Z77 and the ASUS P8Z77-V DELUXE. I am also open to other motherboards but from what i read these 2 have the best features. I dont think i will need to upgrade my video card. I am pretty sure i will be upgrading my PSU. ANy ideas on what wattage i should be looking at? I was looking at 700 watts.. figured they would be more than enough..I have had good experiences with coolermaster...I am considering overclocking because the processor and motherboard are made for it..I was looking at upgrading my SSD to the
Intel 510 Series (Elm Crest) SSDSC2MH120A2K5 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC
Im ont sure if i missed anything. Please let me know if you think anything else should be upgraded..I have not had the chance to do much research on RAM for this setup.. I would want something that high performance since the board can support an over clock to 2800 mhz... Any suggestions are greatly appreciated, Thank You..

Good call on the processor and the Asus Mobo. I've been happy with my P8P67 Deluxe and I think Asus has some of the best software support.

I've also been happy with my lower CAS Gskill 1600s: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

EDIT: just noticed your comment on memory overclock -- you would need a higher end model than this!
Edit 2.0: Seems like the memory you are looking for: http://www.tomshardware.com/news/trident-gskill-ddr3-iv...

With regard to PSU for a high end build I would suggest the gold rated Seasonic x650 or x750. I own the X650 - its fantastic quality. It stays silent most of the time and rarely generates heat even with my 6950+overclock. The higher end Corsair models are good too. You don't need more than 600w if its a high quality unit, but personally I like some extra room so its running around 50% capacity most of the time.
