Hi everyone i wanna build a new PC. Although i had buy some computers before i have little experience on building a system
This are the parts i decided on an they are kinda at my budget limit.
Some parts are cheap so i'm not sure if i made the right choices or i screwed big time.
I want to use the system for gaming an would want to play most of the games out there at high details.
I never done OC but i will probably try it.
Upgrades i can do later(in the following years) would be
-use crossfire with the mentioned video card(probably will need a new motherboard then since although it does has crossfire don't think it's supports this particular setup)
I'm interested if
-everything fits together well(chassis is big enough, parts are compatible),
-what is the bottleneck of this system(what i need to upgrade first)
-all of this will be ordered online so would i have all the "building parts"?(cables, screws..)
-well, any other advice
Intel Core i7-3770K IvyBridge 3.5 GHz box or i7-3770 (don't think i need to link these)
if i get 3770 i could afford a better motherboard
Go for the unlocked processor, the price difference is negligible but the performance difference can be huge (with adequate cooling).
How much space are you taking up on your current drive? If storage capacity isn't an issue, go for an SSD. They've been dropping in price quite a bit recently, and the performance difference is gigantic.
HDD wd caviar blue http://www.cclonline.com/product/45603/WD10EALX/Hard-Dr...
OR HDD Seagate Barracuda 1TB SATA3 32MB 7200rpm (cheaper an don't know if hdd matters at this point)
From what i read SSD don't improve game performance. Only loading time and most games are trying to eliminate even those. And i play a little of a lot of online games(on an off). So i don't want low space.
Out of the psu you listed I'd get the antec basiq 550w. I like wd more than seagate but either should be ok. For a case you could go with the segotap c2r or the aerocool vs-4 they both look ok and will have more than enough space. Yes two 6870 would be better than a 7870 but I think it would be better to get the asrock z77 pro 4 and the 7870 then save for 6 months or so and get another 7870. The 7870 should be going strong for years the 6870 not so much.
