Gaming computer 1000 euros

Hi there,

So... It's my first build and I would like to have advices regarding some parts of my next computer!

Only for information, my 5 years old computer is :

CPU : Intel® Core™2 Quad Processor Q9450
GPU : Nvidia 9800GTX
RAM : 8GB DDR2 Corsair

Time to change :p

Approximate Purchase Date: Up to 1 or 2 months

Budget Range: less than 1k euros

System Usage from Most to Least Important: gaming and basic stuff

Parts Not Required: keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers, OS, Power Supply

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Any which delivers in France or Belgium (Amazon, Cdiscount, Pixmania...)

Country: France

Parts Preferences: Check after

Overclocking: No

SLI or Crossfire: No

Monitor Resolution: Not above 1920x...

Additional Comments: I want to keep this computer for at least 3 years with minor adjustements or 4 years without.
So just one word : reliability.

Here is what I have atm, nothing is blocked, feel free to comment any choice :

CPU i5-3570K
Ventirad? Noctua?

GPU EVGA GTX560-Ti Superclocked

MoBo H77 or Z77??

HD none
SSD OCZ Vertex 3 120GB

RAM Corsair 8Go DDR3 1600MHz C9 Vengeance

Power supply Corsair VX550W enough?

Case Depend of MoBo

Total 670e without Mobo

I should be ok regarding price as only MoBo is missing. It's my weak point, I have read a few things but I'm a bit lost.

Main question should be H77 or Z77 right?

Is this setup ok anyway?

Many thanks!

  1. Dis build rite hurr:

    i5 3570k
    ASUS P8V77 - LK
    Corsair vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600
    EVGA GTX 670
    Corsair H60 watercooler
    Antec gaming series one case
    Corsair 750w powersupply
    Crucial M4 256GB SSD
    ASUS DVD/CD combo drive

    This is a pretty sweet setup for $1260 (~1000 eu), a 3570k/GTX 670 combo will rip through games while the single fast SSD is large enough as long as you don't go crazy with HD movies or anything like that. The mobo and psu will both accommodate overclocking and a second GTX 670 as a future upgrade.
