What do you think of this 3000 dollar build Tags: Build Systems Product Last response: July 28, 2012 12:04 AM in Systems Share itchytoo July 27, 2012 11:49:05 PM These are the parts that I got for my 3000 dollar gaming build. I will be using it for gaming and video editing. I will be using a 1080p 3d monitor. Here are the parts. CPU: Intel core i7-3770k Video cards: Evga GeForce gtx 670 4gb dual sli Motherboard: Asus sabertooth z77 Memory: Corsair vengeance 1600 16GB (4 x4) CPU cooler: Corsar h100 Power supply: Seasonic X-series 1050 watt Storage: Corsair force series 240 GB sata 3 ssd | Western digital caviar black 7200 RPM sata 3 2TB Case: Corsair obsidian Series 650D Optical drive: Plextor black 12x blue-ray writer | HP half height 16x DVD-RW Tell me what you think of this build and how I could improve it More about : 3000 dollar build Temile July 27, 2012 11:55:10 PM I see $2000-2500 worth of parts...not $3000. Other than that, you've got more psu than you need, but nothing wrong with that. m 0 l g-unit1111 July 27, 2012 11:57:19 PM Drop the H100 - don't use a plastic block. The Plextor BD-R burner is outrageously expensive for what you get (yeah I have one, I know), and the 1KW PSU is major overkill. You could pay 1/2 that and get a system that performs just as well.
