I am thinking of building a new gaming PC and I was wondering how this one looks as of now? The 2 SSDs are for both operating systems I plan on running, Win 7 and Linux. I bought a large power supply in hopes of SLI in the future. Let me know!

Without OS it's about the same price as Troll's build. Although I notice that Troll's build didn't include motherboard or RAM.

Remember to get a GTX 670 with a non-reference cooler. Gigabyte, MSI Power Edition or ASUS.

Here is his build:
http://secure.newegg.com/WishList/PublicWishDetail.aspx...

I'd drop the Motherboard. It is not worth the price. Get the ASRock Z77 Extreme4.
Drop the 3770k. It is not going to help you in gaming.
Drop the wasteful 1kW PSU. A 750W will SLI that 670 with plenty of juice to spare.

Sounds like someone just browsed Newegg and got all the five star rated items (classic rookie mistake) - I wouldn't get an Antec 900 because it's so outdated and I would never purchase a Cooler Master PSU.

I agree it's not worth it and here something to look at benchmarks for you to see the ud5h don't play around lol i don't recommend the ASRock Z77 Extreme4 unless your looking for a decent budget mobo then i do but i would suggest if you want top notch mid high end mobo:GIGABYTE GA-Z77X-UD5H LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

The v pro is top notch as well one thing i notice benchmarks differ on sites so it's hard to figure out which are right like i see th has the asrock 6 besting it but on other sites i see it doesn't so not sure what to believe :pfff:  i do know for a fact no matter what benchmarks say the v pro is a awesome mobo for gaming and oc because my ousin has it and i used it many times asus just needs to lower price to about $179.99.

the performance difference from motherboard to motherboard is negligible. people should buy motherboard for its features

they are great boards (best software and ease of use) but asus does charge a very heavy penny for that

as for world records, the one for ivy bridge is 7.103ghz with a gigabyte z77x-up7 (the tank with 32 phase power). the one before that i think was on a z77x-ud3h

Yeah i forgot about that i was thinking sandy bridge my bad still i count quite a big record and you know Asus ego has now been bruised Asus won't put up with gigabyte having that for very long :lol:  although i agree the pricing is almost to the point people should just stop buying so they knock it off and get right
