Mushkin won out on a toms hardware memory shootout awhile back for that kit, all the reviews seem positive (both pro and consumer reviews) and the price is unbeatable. Sli is a possibility, so i spec'd out a 1kw unit.
Drop to 3570K since 3770k brings nothing to the gaming table.
Do you need bells and whistles on Pro mobo? Have you looked at the LE?
Unless you do a RAM disk of some kind, anything over 8GB will not be used (max used is normally around 4-5GB). Also, there's no real-world difference if you get 1.5V 1600MHz RAM at 9-9-9-24.
Again if only gaming and surfing the HDD is not needed. If you want to back up your SSD, get a cheap 500GB HDD.
THe PSU is overkill unless you go tri-SLI. Max you need is 750W, could go 850W if you really feel you need to.
well I already bought the mobo and cpu, and I got them for with a heavy discount at a local store. I do keep a lot of music and movies on my computer so I would like having 1 tb, plus the difference in price between 0.5 and 1 tb is like $30.
Is 1000w really overkill for dual overclocked gtx670's
Would 16gb of 2133mhz ram make the system more future proof than 8 gigs of 1600?
Didn't see movies/music in your original post so by all means snag a HDD.
Unless you can point to a specific app (not game) you need to run that is memory bandwidth sensitive, 1600, 1.5V is the way to go. If you can spare the money, 16GB is fine but it's certainly overkill for the forseeable future.
Two 670s overclocked, a 3770K overclocked, plus random system components *might* pull 600W so 750W is a nice buffer. You could go 850W if the trend reverses and some GPUs come along that start creeping back up in power consumption.
Ok, so I ordered all the parts. Ended up going with a g.skill 16 gig 1600mhz 1.5v 9-9-9-24 kit that was $90, and I bought the 1kw power supply even though everybody said it was way overkill. I like power
