Next time, please post in the System section of the forum for anything build related :) 

What is your intended use for this system? And what is your budget? Also please state your country so we know which sites to look at for parts :) 

I feel you are investing money in the wrong areas, thus not giving you the performance you could potentially have.

I agree. If gaming go with the i5 3570k and upgrade your GPU to a GTX 670. :) 

Just my two cents.


Exactly what I was thinking :) 

He may also want to change his RAM configuration to 2x4GB along with investing in an SSD.

An i7 will give you no benefits over the i5 in gaming. Most games nowadays still utilise only around 2-3 cores with the exception of a few games (Battlefield 3 being one of them).

I would prefer to spend the $100 saved by getting the i5 over the i7 on something else :)  Let's say, an SSD boot drive? Or perhaps you could invest in another GTX560 Ti to SLI to yield even more performance (though I wouldn't really recommend).

uhm im in canada and i already have the card and dont want to buy a new one and i think having the i7 would be better

My thoughts again.

Especailly if your going to stick with the 560ti, save yourself a hundred bucks, the i5 3570 is well above adequate.

I agree.

Once overclocked, the i5 3570k will shred anything in its path. Pair it with a beefy GPU (which the 560 Ti is) and you have yourself a monster rig :lol:

I have pretty much the build you listed, with the exception of of the i7. I use the i5 3570k and its runs great. If you need more power from it, which the 560 ti, which i also have really wont need, you could always overclock. The i7 uses hyperthreading which is more useful for rendering and editing. Save some money on the CPU and grab a decent SSD. Make sure its not an old one that doesnt utilise SATA 3 and run it as a boot drive. Im still amazed at just how quickly that thing boots up.

Another item you may wany to stick in there is a wifi adapater if you cant run ethernet cables to the unit. I got a pci one over usb to keep it compact.

Two words - Power Line :lol: 

If OP were to invest in a router, why can't he invest in a power line? They're about the same cost :lol:

Why such a large power supply!?
August 29, 2012 5:43:34 AM

Well that would depend on what he already has set up, we had a wifi network already so went with that, but getting on his network is something he may have overlooked.

Besides that have you also accounted for an operating system?
August 29, 2012 5:47:12 AM

^ Good point :)

bump someone please answer that question and some pci ports i should get
August 31, 2012 5:31:52 PM

The GTX 560 ti is a better version of the GTX 560. For example on the higharchy of GPU's it goes HD 6850, GTX 560, HD 6870, GTX 560 ti. So thats the only difference.

Now SLI is running 2 cards in tandem with eachother. It gives a signifigant performance boost. You need an sli bridge and a large enough power supply. But it is often a cheaper solution to get a second GTX 560 (or ti in your case) and SLI it with your existing card then just upgrading to like a GTX 670.

As for the rest of it, they were just cracking jokes at your PSU. Its a bit large for your setup. But in my opinin thats not a bad thing, just increases your options for future upgrades. :) 

Hope i answered your questions.

Cheers.
