  1. If you live by a micro center the CPU is 189.99 for a i5 3570K and 50 off any Z77 MOBO

    Windows 7 home will do 30 bucks cheeper

    MoBos if you need SLI ( can be cheeper for a single 670 setup )

    PSU is OVER KILL for a single GPU a good QL 550W will do ( SLI a good QL 750W )

    a CM EVO cpu Cooler for 30 bucks will do for a 4.2 OC ( less you want the water cooler for lookss )

    WD Black 100 bucks


    Your rig is nice, but yes a bit over priced at frys M8 ( They dont price match there ? My local micro center price matched me anything at newegg and i dont have to pay shipping .


    you could save about 2 bills
  2. Frys priced matched everything on newegg and other websites. I went back up there today And they rewarded the price for the harddrive. I need windows pro and I bought the psu because it was 25.00 dollars cheaper and a $15.00 rebate. Also the psu has a 7 year warranty. Also I choose frys because I had 250 dollars in gift cards. Also I had a coupon for 5% off on purchases 500 up 10% for 1000 and up.

    No I don't have a micro center near me.
  3. Your topic said you need help?

    I don't think you need that H80. What were your thoughts there?

    Your PSU is also way overkill. You could save some money on a smaller/cheaper one there if you wanted.
  4. For the PSU, you don't need 850W. A Corsair AX750W is seriously too expensive as well, but if you want quality quality and quality, get it!
    As someone else said - 500-550W will do for 1x 670, 750W will do for 2x 670.

    Also, that case is expensive! You can get a Cooler Master HAF 912 for 55$ on FRYS. Have it myself - awesome case!

    You could probably find a cheaper motherboard too without losing any performance at all.

    Liquid cooling is overkill for most normal user systems. I'd recommend a Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO fan.

    If you consider taking some of the parts back, buy a SSD!

    Your build is not bad (it's AWESOME), but you could absolutely save $ on some of your parts without losing any performance.
  5. As much as I hate Frys and their dishonesty - that's a pretty sweet build. The only thing I'd do would be to switch the H80 for a Noctua D14 but that would be it.
