My to be bought in 2 days build - checkup needed

Hello,

I've been over tons of hardware over the past month and learned a lot while trying to figure out what would be a good multi-purpose build for me.

Well this is what I came up with:
Intel Core i7-3770K
Gigabyte Z77X-UD3H Mobo - http://www.gigabyte.com/products/p [...] id=4153#na
Gigabyte OC GTX 670 (SLI in the future) - http://www.gigabyte.eu/products/pr [...] id=4211#sp
Noctua NH-D14 CPU Cooler - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod [...] 6835608018
Crucial M4 2.5" SSD - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod [...] 6820148442
Seasonic X-760 Gold PSU - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod [...] 6817151103
WD 1TB Caviar Black HDD
NZXT Phantom 410 case

I think this is a really solid build. I would though appreciate suggestions and insights regarding this build.

Thank you

  1. For gaming, the PSU and CPU are too much/overkill.

    PSU - would need that if I plan to go SLI afaik
    CPU - I said it's a multi-purpose build, I'll consider though downgrading to 3570k and save the cash
  3. No, you do not need a gold rated PSU for SLIng. A TX750 V2 is plenty.
  4. Thanks for your replies.

    Correct me if I'm wrong but having a gold rated PSU simply means the same amount of wattage will be delivered but with less power loss. When I commented on my PSU I meant to say I need the 760W for SLI.
    The gold rated is just a bonus to save cash on my electricity bill.
    My local vendor offers the TX750 v2 for 35$ less but its not modular. It also offers the TX750M for 19$ less but its semi-modular and bronze. I personally think the 19$ is worth it.

    Any other thoughts on my build would be appreciated.
  5. Gold and Bronze will not save you much $ as the difference in their price will negate any savings you get.

    I agree though I feel like paying for the brand of Seasonic is worth it.
  7. Just get Bronze. Gold isn't worth it. SeaSonic is great, but PC Power and Cooling, Corsair, Antec, and Silverstone are all on the same level as SeaSonic.
