J_E_D_70 June 14, 2012 9:53:09 PM For what purpose? If just gaming, can drop down to the 3570 (K if you want to overclock) and a much, much cheaper mobo like the ASRock Extreme4 (Pro4 if you do not plan to SLI). May take th savings to buy an SSD - best. investment. ever. Related resources Will this setup work - Forum Will this Nvidia GTX 650 ti work with my setup ?

Get the answer Best solution Shinseina June 14, 2012 9:54:33 PM Downgrade the power supply to a 620 W. SeaSonic S12II 620 Bronze 620W ATX12V V2.3 / EPS 12V V2.91 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply - 86.99 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Seasonic produces very good power supply's. And frankly you don't need 700W for one GTX 670. Also is there a good reason why you need an i7? If you just plan on gaming then go for something like this. If you overclock: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... If you dont: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Also 16 GB of RAM is a bit of an overkill unless you plan on running multiple VM's. 8 GB of 1600 Mhz should do you good. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Also you might consider an SSD for your OS/Games. They are leaps and bounds faster than a HDD. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Everything else looks great! Good luck and happy building, Shinseina Lucien Lahcchance June 14, 2012 9:55:53 PM no i use it for recording while playing too and i render at the same time and download games on steam sooooo i practically rape my current pc Lucien Lahcchance June 14, 2012 10:02:24 PM Best answer selected by Lucien Lahcchance. Lucien Lahcchance June 14, 2012 10:58:19 PM oh and by the way is CPU compatible with the Motherboard? Shinseina June 15, 2012 12:56:23 AM No you will need a 1155 socket motherboard for any of the Ivy Bridge/Sandy Bridge CPU's. Here's what I recommend for your needs: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... This motherboard has been reviewed in the mid-range z77 priced motherboard reviews and has proven to hold it's own against similarly priced motherboards. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
