  1. indeed, such a beast rig.
  2. 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.

    Downgrade the power supply to a 620 W.

    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:

    If you dont:

    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.

    Also you might consider an SSD for your OS/Games. They are leaps and bounds faster than a HDD.

    Everything else looks great!


    Good luck and happy building,

  6. oh and by the way is CPU compatible with the Motherboard?
  7. 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:
