So far i got these two for my motherboard and CPU. I need a good video card that would run well with these two that is around the same price. Give me suggestions please. Also let me know if which CPU would be best only for my need of Gaming
ASUS Sabertooth Z77 - $240
Intel Core i7-3770k- 290 or (i5 3570k - 190) or (i7 3770 - $260.)
I would go with a GTX 680 if you have the dough, but a nVidia 580/570 is a sure choice and will serve you greatly. I agree with Gaming, i 3770k. I would research hyperthreading, that's the difference between i7 and i5. (Some you know, more GHz, etc.)
Asus Sabertooth's are awesome boards, worth every penny if you ask me.
Mine obviously is an AMD one, but the principle still holds true. The only regret I have was that I didn't go for the big 1100T 6 core instead of my 975 quad core. Not that the 975 hasn't done well for me, but in my opinion whether your need the performance of not, this is the varsity year for the LGA 1155 socket, I say get the best CPU the budget allows. But yes, its correct, for gaming there is absolutely no advantage of the i7 over the i5.
