Approximate Purchase Date: At the end of July

Budget Range: $1000

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, photoshop

Parts Not Required: monitor

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: any Canadian website (tigerdirect.ca., newegg.ca)

Country: Canada

Parts Preferences: for sure 100% GTX 670. 90% intel core i5-2500k

Overclocking: Maybe

SLI or Crossfire: No

Additional Comments: don't give a crap about noise or the looks of the gaming rig. just performance. (no fugly cases though, just average good looking ones)



Here's the link to an approximation of what the computer will look like. Looking mostly for feedback if anything is severely bottlenecking my gtx 670. Thanks.

edit: I also have a question: hwo do you get more usb slots? I need at least 3 ports.

You can also try NCIX.com (usually much better prices than newegg.ca)

What monitor are you currently using?

this isnt happening. the cpu, the mobo, the gpu will already cost 800 dollars. here is the build that i put together with your preferences. (z68 boards cost more than z77 boards)

http://pcpartpicker.com/ca/p/9BOD

it is 1200 dollars. to get the 1000 mark, downgrade the gpu to a 7850 and a 550w power suply

Well without windows I shave off another 100 but do I really need to have that case? The Cooler Master Elite 310 ATX Mid Tower Case is $30 cheaper. Also what was inadequate with the Gigabyte GA-H61M-S2H Micro ATX LGA1155 Motherboard? It doesn't fit the gtx?

1: will the 10.5 inch gtx 670 fit? if it does, go ahead if not, dont
2: the h61 will not do. you are running ivy bridge and the board is a crippled sandy bridge chipset. you basically lose the point of having ivy bridge. also not to mention it work overclock. h77 is the way to go for non-overclocking and z77 for overclocking. i can already imagine how stupid it would look if you put a 80 dollar board with a 400 dollar graphics card ;)

Honestly, I don't care about overclocking since it may damage my parts but I just want the downright best performance for $1,000. (I also somewhat lean towards nvidia since it supports PhysX and I like its catalyst ability to insert random graphic setting pretty useful. Not to mention the txaa that's coming out)

Hmm.. interesting points. Will a MSI Z77A-G43 do? it's $30 cheaper. Oh and as I stated, I'll buy this at the end of july so perhaps it can be more than $1000 considering it'll realisticly go down to $1000 by august.

This is without the vid card. Maybe you can find a cheaper board at NCIX.
