Go with i5-3570K and Z77. It's more than enough for gaming. Spend the money you save on a cheaper CPU on a better GPU and/or a SSD for OS and most used programs (I recommend Crucial m4). | Report abuse Faex June 15, 2012 2:11:21 AM Best answer selected by Faex. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Systems>1700$ pc overlook> Related ressources: ForumBuilding PC , did I overlook anything?
