    1. I'd go ahead and get a third generation core i7 processor since there is a fairly big performance increase, and if you don't want to pay more money, then go with the 3770 (not overclockable).
    NEVERMIND, DIDN'T SEE THAT YOU WANTED TO OVERCLOCK

    2. Evga cards are always the best overall from a neutral standpoint, basically you can't go wrong with it. And, its cheaper!

    3. You can never co wrong with corsair vengence ram:
    http://www.ncix.ca/products/?sku=57078&vpn=CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9&manufacture=Corsair

    This is also available in a 16 gb package (also in blue or red which is a little better but more expensive)

    4. Obviously if you want to run sli you will have to upgrade your psu.


    Other than that, the pc build looks fine, hope you have sucess!!!

    thank you for the reply
  3. heres what im gonna build. take a look into it

    the z77x-ud5h should help with live streaming as it has dual networking cards

    i dont see the point of getting a i7 unless you plan to do a lot of video editing

    http://pcpartpicker.com/ca/p/buow


    those are the parts and the prices may not be the lowest possible. go to ncix and look through their weekly sale
  4. most full time live streamers use an i7 and thegunrun recommends i7 2600k


    how does dual network cards improve streaming?

    i will be price matching most items
  5. well if you need a i7, go ahead and get the 7 3770k. its currently 349.99 at ncix.

    price match everything at ncix and then you can pick it up at their stores. you cant price match anything with a MIR though

    if you have dual network cards, you can allocate one specifically for gaming and one specifically for streaming. keep in mind that you might cause a bottleneck if you dont have a fast enough internet connection or your router does a poor job allocating the bandwidth
