Here is my initial build. Please let me know if there are compatibility issues or if there's a better part suited for its usage with the build. I am open to all suggestions, just let me know why I would like this build to last me 5+ years
You have 1/5 of your budget going to a motherboard that won't help you one single iota when it comes to the purpose of your build. You are spending more on a motherboard than you are on a GPU for a gaming build.
Lose the sabertooth and get an Asrock Extreme4.
Lose the 16gb an get 8gb for half the price.
For a PSU, get a 750W or higher if you want the option to CF/SLI later.
Lose that Vertex 3 in favor of a Crucial or Mushkin SSD.
Lastly, take all the saved money there and upgrade to at least a 7850, if not a GTX670.
@chulex67, is there a psu that you would recommend?
@cranked, is this the ASRock board and GTX670 you are referring to?
With the change from vertex 3 to mushkin SSD, the price is the same and crucial is only about 30 bucks more. Is there a performance difference between vertex 3 when compared to mushkin/crucial?
What is the difference between GTX670 and 7850? Is the $200 difference because the GTX670 is purely faster? (GTX670 1006MHZ/6.2GHZ vs 7850 860MHZ/4.8GHZ)
Sorry for all these questions!
Thanks once again though, the more info I get, the more of a better product I can put together
For a PSU, look at Corsair, Seasonic, Antec or XFX. If you are not going to CF, look at something in the range of 550-600W. For future CF, look at something in the neighborhood of 750W.
Yes that was the Asrock board I was reffering to. Most anything in that price range from Asrock, ASUS or Gigabyte will be about the same quality and features.
Most any 670 will do yah good if you go that route. EVGA, Gigabyte or ASUS are the ones I would look at.
The difference between the 670 and 7850 is a lot. The 670 is a monster. The 7850 is a great card that is on the high end of the performance/price ratio. I would get the 670 if you can afford it. After that, I wouldn't get anything else in between, but that's my opinion.
