I'm planning on buying all the parts within the next month or two, and I tried my best to research all the parts and make sure they'd play nice, but it is my first build so I thought I'd ask for some outside opinions as well.
Right now the set up I'm planning is going to cost me right at $1230 and I don't want to go much higher than that unless necessary
I'll pretty much just be using my new computer for gaming and surfing the internet and watching movies
I'm going to do all of my shopping off of NewEgg unless someone has a better deal somewhere else (I'll search around before the final purchase) and I'm ordering all of my things from the US
omm how about a big fat no on the 550 that will do nothing you want it wont game or watch movies with any real quality. Get a 560 ti at the least 16 gb of ram is overkill as well as the psu 8 gb is fine and 750 watt is still overkill 600watt would be plenty with most graphics card:) get the i5-3570k it will perform the same as the i7 the i3,i5 and i7 is a core indication which doesnt matter in gaming then you should be good!
I read a bunch of good reviews on the Sabertooth (the only bad reviews being DOA boards) and I thought the Z77 series was released inline with the Ivy Bridge
actually, amuffin managed to play bf3 at ultra with a 550ti in multiplayer with 30-50fps
Big troll we think so much alike
the 550 was the highest rated video card in my price range on new egg, so I thought it'd suffice, lol
What is your price range??? if you go with thebigtroll's rig you might want to hug him because it is a very nice build....DO IT!!!! It is the best thing to do
no thanks bro. im in canada
TheBigTroll's build does seem really nice. It's a shame I spent two days putting mine together and it gets destroyed in a matter of minutes XD
Oh well that is disapointing.
BigTroll nailed it. Wish there was a way to get an SSD in there but I'm not seeing it. I'd recommend you save up and that be the very next thing you drop in there.
Alright, well you guys have been great. I'll start building this as I feel financially ready XD
