Gaming PC $1300-$1600

Approximate Purchase Date: The future. I'll probably wait for some sales around he in Aus and then buy my parts.

Budget Range: $1300-$1600

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, Gaming and more Gaming

Parts Not Required: Monitor, keyboard and mouse.

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: umart.com.au

Country: Australia

Parts Preferences: Intel and Nvidia

Overclocking: More than likely with the parts I'm getting

SLI or Crossfire: Maybe

Monitor Resolution: 1440x900 for now but later on after the build I will be getting a 1920x1080

Additional Comments: Don't give two shits about anything other than functionality


So basically here are the parts I've assembled so far.

PSU: Need help
Case: NZXT PHANTOM Full Tower case w No PSU Black
RAM: Corsair Vengeance CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3
CPU: Intel Core i5 2500K Processor LGA1155 3.3GHz CPU
Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO w Transparent 12cm
Mobo: Need help
HDD: Western Digital 1TB SATA3 64M(WD1002FAEX)
GPU: Asus GF GTX670 DirectCU II TOP Edition

So that's it so far, basically I need recommendations for a motherboard and a PSU. I want nice quality gear for both but at a budgety sort of nice price.

  1. get i5 3570k. ivy bridge is better

    if you are getting ivy bridge, get something like the asrock extreme4 or the gigabyte z77x-ud3h

    seagate baracuda 1tb with 64mb of cache is cheaper and the same speed as the black drive if not faster

    pick up a xfx 650-750w power supply. they are cheaper than seasonic (seasonic=best power supplies) and they are built by seasonic.
  2. if you llike asus, get the p8z77-lk mobo
