I prefer buying in Poland(possible problems with service etc.). What non-avaliable parts have you meant?

Well, how about this one: http://www.agito.pl/plyta-glowna-asrock-z77-extreme4-79-554052.html. It's got more USB 3.0 ports, POST display, and I've got an portable eSATA hard-disk, so motherboard must got eSATA port. Is this one OK? Maybe MSI or ASUS will be better?

Could you find something with modular cables? What about the one which I've suggested: Thermaltake Toughpower XT 675W?

Quote:
GTX 670


How is the difference in performance between GTX 670 and GTX 680? 10%? 20%? And which manufacturer should I choose?

I thought about 8GB of RAM, but maybe I'll buy 16GB, ok.

Cooler Master RR-H612-13FK-R1


Is this cooler good enough to overclocking?

Next - hard disks. You recommend WD Caviar, Mushkin(I don't know this), why this ones? What differences are between disks which I've chosen at the start of this topic(Samsung F3, Samsung 830) and yours suggestions?

And a good blu-ray recorder. Is this http://www.morele.net/lg-blue-ray-x10-black-retail-lightscribe-bh10ls38-rbb-bulk-428150/ take the test?
June 11, 2012 7:29:10 PM

The gtx 670 runs head to head with the gtx 680 and AMD 7970 yet does it for $100 USD cheaper. Asus, Gigabyte, EVGA, and MSI.

This board down below has two eSATA ports.

Thermaltake psu's aren't recommended on this board for the fact they lack in quality. This Seasonic down below is quality and it's modular.

Also that CM cpu h/s will allow you a nice o/c.

The WD hard drives have a 5 - 7 year warranty and are #1. Also 16GB of RAM would be a big help for editing.

mATX? I prefer full-ATX. Why not ASRock Z77 Extreme4??

Ok, understood. What about SSD disks(Samsung 830 vs Mushkin)?

June 14, 2012 1:12:11 PM

Why nobody replies?
June 14, 2012 1:15:07 PM

samsung is more consistent with their stuff while mushkin has good prices for great performance
June 14, 2012 1:32:31 PM

Ok, but unfortunately there aren't any Mushkin's disks in Poland, and I won't buy it abroad. Please tell me if that Samsung will take the test.
June 14, 2012 1:44:30 PM

samsung is good as intel so get it when it is cheap
June 14, 2012 2:09:47 PM

Ok, what about the rest of questions?
June 14, 2012 2:12:43 PM

if you like full-size atx, there isnt any problem with getting it
June 14, 2012 2:23:36 PM

So ASRock Z77 Extreme4 will be good? Is it a good manufacturer? What about OC features?
June 14, 2012 3:37:51 PM

it will oc pretty well. asrock has been pretty good with their stuff and have yet to see any of their product failing alot
June 14, 2012 6:27:00 PM

There is an one another problem. I've heard that WD hard disks are very loud and "scratch" a lot. Is this true?
June 14, 2012 6:29:13 PM

No.
June 14, 2012 6:40:45 PM

It's very strange, about 50% opinions I've seen saids that's very loud. So WD Caviar Black 7200RPM is the best choice today? Maybe Seagate?
June 14, 2012 9:17:24 PM

I've always used Seagate drives, mine is incredibly quiet. I do have an anti-vibration mount for it though.
August 6, 2012 2:19:17 PM

Sorry for this long silence. Now, I have a bigger budget(up to 2400$) and some problems.

At first, here's the list of parts:

1. Intel Core i7-3770K \ i7-2600K
2. Geforce GTX 670
3. Mainboard - MSI Z77-GD65
4. Corsair DDR3 1600MHz CL10
5. WD Caviar Black 2TB
6. Samsung SSD830 128GB
7. Be Quiet! BN197
8. Blue-Ray LG BH10LS38
9. LG BH10LS38 - LED monitor
10. Microsoft Natural Ergo 7000 Wireless Desktop
11. Microlab 2.1 FC530U speakers
12. Noctua NH-D14

Here's basket from morele.net: http://www.morele.net/inventory/info/fmOyCg/

1. Are these speakers, mouse&keyboard and display good??
2. I don't know what should I choose: 3770K or 2600K? I'm planning OC and I've read that Ivy Bridge processors have problems with heat, they don't give heat to the cooler. Look at this comparision: http://www.tweaktown.com/articles/4621/intel_ivy_bridge... . 2600K at 5.2GHz is 20C hotter than 3770K at 4.8GHz. For me, 4,5GHz on Ivy will be enough and I want to know how temperatures will I have on Noctua's cooler. I've read a lot, lot of articles about this topic, and I still don't know what should I choose and why. On Poland forums people advices that I should choose 2600K, on abroad forums(even at Tom's) - 3770K, but I don't know why... Help people!

3. The last problem is choosing chasis. What about CM HAF 922?
