So I've recently moved to Moscow and am building a new gaming rig. I mention the Moscow thing because certain parts aren't available which means I might have to sacrifice in some places, but also I might be asking about taking parts on planes!
Firstly, are all of these parts compatible with one another?
Secondly, is this CPU cooler good enough? I don't think I'm going to be overclocking, but the games I'm really looking at are BF3 and the total war series, so if you guys think I should i'd love to hear opinions.
I haven't added an SSD to the build as right now I don't think a faster boot time justifies the price.
Tell me what you think of the build, and huge thanks in advance!
All the parts are compatible.. Good job, this is quite a good build and yes, they are all compatible. However, i'd suggest a few changes
Firstly, The CPU Cooler is good, but the 212 EVO is better.
Secondly, I suggest ditching the sound card, its not worth the money, period.
Get an SSD instead.
The case is just perfect along with the rest of the parts. Except for.. the Ram, PSU, CPU..
You should get the 3570K, it is of much better value than the 3770K.
The 680 is hard to find, expensive and not worth it compared to the other keppler GPUs. The 660Ti (which is $100 cheaper than 670, which is $100 cheaper than 680).
Anyway, if you wish to get the 680, go ahead.. but i myself have been waiting for the 660Ti. If not the 660Ti, the 670 is the best bet anyday.
