  1. All of the games you specifically mentioned can be played easily by ANY modern CPU. An i7 would be ridiculous overkill for it, just so you know that going in.

    I'd ask you to fill out the form here:

  2. I would look into a Z77 MOBO with 2 PCI E 3.0

    i5 3570K or 2500K

    8 GB of DDR3 1600

    7850 or GTX 670

    1 TB HDD

    240s SSD

    GOOD QL PSU 750W

    CPU Cooler CM evo
  3. Yeah I got the i7-3930k, the 3820 isnt worth it over a i7-3770k and on a X79 board why would you bother with a quad-core SB-E?
    You can easily use even a i7-2500 and use the saving from not getting X79 to pair with a better graphics card and that would boost your games more than a hex-core with a weaker card.

    You won't notice the difference of PciE 3.0 vs 2.0 unless you SLI for now but then Gen 3 PciE doesnt add any real cost. You would need a AMD 7x series or Nvidia 6x to really use 3.0 anyway.

    Absolutely the GTX670 over a 7850, the GTX670 is more on par with 7970. That could be paid off just with the lower cost Z77 board differences...
  4. ok hey im looking at spending more than $1000 for a new sestym to start out with buti still kind want the newest motherbored so i can upgrade it easly later n thanks for thehelp guys
  5. im also looking to not over clock but i would like a system that had the option to just incase i ever might need to

    how much would this sistem cost and if you know a good one im would rather not overclock i dot have the money to replais the cpu or mother borde if something were to happen to it and im looking for a start up system for around $800 to $1000 but I want to be able to upgrade thats why i liked the X79 better than the X77. So if you got anything else to say now that I've come up with what I'm really looking for please coment and thank you for the advice.

    First off with a 800 to 1000 budget, going with a X79 vs Z77 and a i7 VS i5 is not a good way to go. You will be spending money in the wrong places for a gaming rig.

    Do you really need a mobo that supports 64 GB of ram, when 4 GB is enough for a gaming setup ? also 8 GB is a sweet spot so you still can add 24more GB

    Also the Z77 has 8x 8x support VS 16x 16x on the X79 ( sure it all looks good on paper ) but there really isn't much of a difference with 8x/8x or 16x/16x when scaling two single gpu cards ( if you even do get a 2nd GPU down the road.

    Now for a Gaming rig, its best to get the best Single GPU you can afford ( Why ? ) because sli/crossfire don,t always give you 100% the FPS as a Single GPU will. i.e. if a single GPU gives you 40 FPS two GPUs might give you 53 FPS, also not all games work well with 2 GPUs

    Now for a no BS 995.92 build that will give you the best FPS for your money. ( You could also do 4 GB of ram and a 500 GB HDD to shave a bit more off the cost )

    All the parts are good QL and IMO will be a grate gaming rig under 1 K
