More about buying tonight final opinions
  1. a last generation graphics card

    a psu thats way over kill

    a cpu that wont improve gaming performance over a 3570k

    and expensive and unneeded water cooler and an ssd thats too small for more than 1 or 2 games
  2. Personally id drop to a 2600k and put a bit more into the gpu if possible
  3. There are a lot of wrong things in this build. Unless you don't care about gaming so much, don't mind spending a lot of money, and will use it mostly for multi-core intensive professional applications, you're paying double what you should for half the gaming performance (not even kidding here).

    I would HIGHLY recommend starting the build over and telling us EXACTLY what you mean to do with it.
  4. Ok. So I dropped the H100, SSD, 3770K, and ASRock Fatal1ty Professional Z77. And this is mostly for gaming. So I put in an i7 2700K, and got the same MOBO, except the Z68 chipset, instead of Z77. I got rid of the GTX 570, and got a GTX 670. And now it's cheaper than before. Thanks guys. Oh, and I got a 750W instead of an 850W, because I will SLI 2 GTX 670's in the future, and that should be enough wattage.
  5. do you need an i7? from what I've researched, i5 is plety enough for games at the moment.
