Hello, I'm a noob when it comes to computers in general so I'm just wondering whether my build will be compatible.
Motherboard: AsRock z77 - extreme4
CPU: intel i5 3570
GPU: Gigabyte 2G GTX 670
RAM: 8G 1600 G.skill sniper
SSD: samsung 830 series 128gb
HDD: WD Green 1tb
Case: Antec 902v3
PSU: Corsair HX750
Also, can the gtx 670 run dual monitors? (one monitor for gaming and the other for forums/guides/facebook) The two monitors im planning to use is the 23" LG E2351VR. How much drop in performance will this cause for the GTX 670? The games i will mostly be playing are BF3 and GW2.
I ask because you may run into clearence issues on the memory with some coolers. If there are plans to OC you'll want to grab the 3570K.
In the foreseeable future I don't intend on overclocking.
and as CPU cooling goes, i was hoping the stock fan will suffice, but if i need to get an aftermarket heatsink, im going to purchase the Coolermaster Universal Hyper 212 EVO (what manofchalk suggested)
Dont get a Green drive, they are slow by design and the energy savings are negligible. Get a proper 7200RPM drive like the WD Caviar Black or Seagate Barracuda. Often a proper drive is cheaper as well, though I have no idea why.
Is it really that much slower? =/ I was thinking about getting the Caviar black but from what i've heard they are relatively loud. As far as performance goes, will the caviar blue suffice?
