just looking for last minute compatibility check and part suggestions before i buy. especially motherboard and ram even though i think i have what i want i love to get a good 2nd opinion.
i have a nice coolermaster case that i will be reusing as well as an hd 6950 so i wont be needing graphics either. i also just bought a 950w watt psu on shellshocker the other day that will be going into this build. my old ssd and hdd will be reused also untill i want to shell out for new ones. i also have a full versoin of windows 7 from my previous build that i will use on this.
ok with all that being said...
GIGABYTE GA-Z77X-UD5H LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
gaming is focus mostly but i figured for the extra hundred i would go for the i7. i will probably have this for a long time
edit: also bragging rights of course :-)
You won't get bragging rights with a 3770K - at most people will give you a hard time for purchasing a CPU that's $100 more with features you don't need and will never use. You're better off investing in a stronger GPU - that's where you will get bragging rights.
