Will These Parts Work?

I have never built a pc before, and have looked through a few websites searching for information on how to choose parts that will work together. I think these parts will work fine, but wanted some opinions from people more qualified than me. Any suggestions would be great as well. Thanks in advance.

  3. Are you planning on strictly going for gaming? If so, drop the 2700K and go for the 2500K or the 3570K.

    They will all work together fine, though why the "K" Processor and H77 motherboard? The K means it can overclock but the H on the motherboard wont let you.

    Also the 2700K is Sandy Bridge while the H/Z77 platform is more optimized for the newer Ivy Bridge. The 3770k will work better in the motherboard.

    And the Z77 version motherboard will let you overclock it.

    To overclock it you will need an aftermarket heatsink. The standard go to cooler is the CM Hyper 212 EVO.

    I assume that you picked the i7 because you will be video editing. If your only gaming you should get the i5-3570k. Games wont take advantage of an i7's Hyperthreading.

    If you are video editing, you will need more RAM, 16GB of it. This kit is good and wont conflict with any CPU cooler you may put in.

    On to the graphics card. For the same price you can get a HD7950, which performs better and doesn't consume as much power.

    Though if you can stretch your dollar get a GTX670.

    This HDD is a couple dollars cheaper and as far as I can tell are identical.

  6. Great. Drop the 2700K and use the money for a better GPU. If you go for a 3570K, then you'll save $80 right there. Kick in an extra $40 with that $80 you just saved, and you can get a nVidia GTX 670 instead of the GTX 570. Your choice though.
  7. Thank you both for your incite.
