Hey, I'm about to build my first pc within the next 2-3 months. I have done a fair amount of research and have compiled a list of components. Please let me know if I am doing something wrong or if you recommend something different. Also, I am on the fence between a gigabyte 7970 oc and a evga gtx 680 sc. However, the evga is 60 dollars more on newegg.
Anyways, let me know.
CPU: intel i7 3770k
Mobo: Asus p8z77 v-pro
GPU: Gigabyte 7970 oc or evga gtx680 oc
Ram: gskills ripjaws x series 8 gb
Storage: WD caviar black 1tb 7200rpm
Case: rose will blackhawk mid tower atx
Optical drive: asus Blu ray
Power supply: corsair tx650 v2
CPU cooler: CM hyper 212 evo
Ok thanks, I'll look into the 3570k thatll save me a considerable chunk of change. Quick question though, i thought the 3770k produces higher fps results in games thanthe i5. I could be wrong though. And Does everything else look alright? How far would you oc the 7970 with stability being the highest priority?
Thanks. I think I'm gunna stick with the gigabyte 7970 oc though and maybe over clock a little bit, but not much. Any other recommendations? I also couldn't decide between ripjaws ram and corsair vengeance. Not aware of any differences between the two though.
