I am getting a new build end of May and I'm wondering which is better:
Sapphire 7870 OC version PLUS an intel 520 ssd vs. Gigabyte Windforce 670 OC version
The rest of my build is as following:
Gigabyte GA-Z77-D3H Intel Z77 Ivy Bridge Motherboard
Intel Core i5 3570K Ivy Bridge 3.40Ghz 6MB 95W LGA1155
Corsair Hydro Series H100 Extreme Performance Liquid CPU Cooler
Patriot Viper Xtreme 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3-1866 CL9 (PXD38G1866ELK)
Western Digital Caviar Black WD1002FAEX 1TB 64MB Cache SATA3
ASUS DRW-24B3ST 24X DVD Writer SATA
Corsair Obsidion Series 650D Full Tower Chassis
Corsair TX750M Enthusiast Series Modular Power Supply
ASUS VS239H 23" IPS 5ms Monitor
Microsoft Windows 7 OEM Home Premium 64Bit
The GTX 670's are not out yet nor has a date been set so you may be waiting for the release , plus there are no benchmarks out to compare to other cards so we don't know the performance.
The new Ivy Bridge cpu's consume less watts so they run a lot cooler and you could get a much less expensive cpu cooler.
It looks like you went and picked out high priced extreme parts and you do need to have some feedback on your build so your not wasting money on parts you don't need.
