More about looking spend 1500 rate build please
  1. What is the purpose of this build? Gaming?

    I wouldn't go with a liquid cooler unless you want to OC an extreme amount. Stick to a Hyper 212 EVO or similar air cooler setup.

    Definitely go with the GTX 670 if you can fit it into your budget. It's worth the extra coin over the 560, for sure if you are an avid gamer.
  2. Well I'm assuming he's going to be overclocking a lot because he's going 2500k instead of 3570k.

    It depends on what games you are playing. The GTX 670 seems the best deal out there right now, for some games it might be overkill, but it will be able to keep up with intensive games now and future games.
  3. I don't know if I would make the leap that he is planning high OC's.

    I guess we would know if he filled out the build advice form. For now, we await his reply.
  4. Overclocking is something i do plan on doing, but as opposed to the water cooling looking into getting a akasa venom cooler for my processor? I've heard a decent heatsink can potentially be better than a liquid set up? And yes gaming the function for my build, so im going to suck it up and go for the 670. Anything else you guys could suggest?
