This will be a system that I hope to keep for 5-10 years so what might be overkill today may not be down the road. This won't be used for games, but a lot of multitasking, maybe some video editing and resource intensive applications. The only thing I've bought so far is the case and an additional case fan.
i7-3770K (not planning to overclock initially)
MSI Z77A-G41 Intel 7 Series Z77 Motherboard - ATX, LGA 1155, Intel Z77 Chipset, 2133(OC) DDR3, SATA 6 Gb/s, RAID, 8-CH Audio, Gigabit LAN, USB 3.0, Crossfire Ready
Looking for feedback on the motherboard. Something that supports 32 GB ram and preferably 3rd gen intel processors with SATA 6GB for around $100-$150. Any recommended brands or models would be appreciated. Most of what I have seen only support gen 2 processors.
16GB Ram (maybe 32 if I find a good deal)
512 GB SSD, brand depends on what's on sale and reviews.
1TB Toshiba 7200 HD
Corsair 600W builder class PSU (is that enough power?)
GPU (don't plan on playing games, only using this to get better appearance, maybe take a little strain off CPU):
Thanks very much o1die, I was also considering a 3750, but I think I would go with an unlocked K version. I'll definitely look at a smaller SSD like you mentioned and save the majority of my files on the HD. All of the msi 210 video cards I have seen seem to have fans. I have been debating if I even need a card, but I guess it wouldn't hurt. I love the price of the board you sent the link for, but some of the reviews scare me. I appreciate the feedback.
