  1. Best answer
    The motherboard link you gave redirects to a mATX. Anyway, I changed that to an ASRock z75 Pro3.
    The video card link doesn't go anywhere. The 7770 should perform better at a bit cheaper price.
    I gave a cheaper, more efficient casing.
    Found a cheaper 16gb RAM that's still good quality.
    Great SSD choice.
    You forgot a PSU. Added one for you.

    And here it is,
    http://pcpartpicker.com/p/iFIJ
    $671.91 after rebates.
  2. Skip the 3570K on that budget and go for a 3450. 16GB of RAM isn't needed either.

    For that budget I'd go for something like this:

    PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant / Benchmarks

    CPU: Intel Core i5-3450 3.1GHz Quad-Core Processor ($179.99 @ Newegg)
    Motherboard: ASRock H77 Pro4/MVP ATX LGA1155 Motherboard ($87.55 @ Newegg)
    Memory: G.Skill Ares Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($39.99 @ Newegg)
    Storage: Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($86.98 @ Newegg)

    Excella in the "Parts to upgrade" i mentioned i would be reusing my Corsair VX 550W I fixed the video link please
    take a look, if you still like yours better, please indicate this. So now we can subtract your Rosewill Green PSU and
    the price is looking even better. Let me know what you think about the graphics card.

    G-Unit I really want my Intel Core i5-3570K. I didn't mention storage because I have a 1TB Western Digital Caviar Black already, I only mentioned the SSD in this thread cause that's all I need. I don't need a Power Supply, please see "Parts to Upgrade" section, and I don't need an optical drive. Now if your choice was a reasonably priced BluRay Burner I would definitely consider it. Can we now edit the part picker results? Thanks so much for responding!
  4. Which Graphics Card is better??

    They're pretty even. See this comparison

    I'd go with the 7770 since it's newer tech.

    Thanks buddie!
  7. Well i kinda took Excella's recommendation and edited it a little and came up with this build>>

    http://pcpartpicker.com/p/iIwc
  8. Looks good. Only thing I would question is that Blu Ray burner (which is OOS at the moment FYI).

    Cheaper options:

    LG Black 14X BD-R 2X BD-RE 16X DVD+R 5X DVD-RAM 12X BD-ROM 4MB Cache SATA BDXL Blu-ray Burner,3D Play Back (WH14NS40) - OEM $75

    Speaking of cheap i found this , what do you think?

    Pioneer BDR207DBK 12x Internal Blu-ray Burner - Bare Drive
    http://www.microcenter.com/product/399290/Pioneer_BDR207DBK_12x_Internal_Blu-ray_Burner_-_Bare_Drive $59.99
  10. It should work. It looks like shipping will be extra unless you have a Microcenter nearby. The LG I linked to above does appear to be slightly faster and it has a couple of extra features that you'll probably never use (Plays 3D discs and DVD-RAM).
  11. Oh. Apologies for missing your post regarding the PSU.
    I agree the Blu-ray you picked isn't worth the money. One of the ones suggested above would be a wiser choice.
  12. Ok thanks guys, i decided to go with Micro Center so i can just walk in purchase my hardware immediately. All of the following hardware is in stock, please chime in with what you think. If you want to chime in any changes please use the Micro Center site. I tried to do my new build on http://pcpartpicker.com with all Microcenter hardware but it would not display a price, can anyone show me how to do it, as i am new to http://pcpartpicker.com.

  13. The RAM you chose is $30 more than the one I suggested, and it's only 1333MHz.
    The Vertex 3 SSD isn't very good. Please reconsider the Vertex 4 I listed.
    There are better cases out there in the $50-60 range(i.e Rosewill Challenger and CM HAF 912, respectively) that's alot better than your $70 MSI.

    Can you find something on the microcenter.com site please? Cause i need to walk in that store for my hardware, thanks.

    My priority is cooling, this unit has impressive bays and options but only one fan, the one i picked has three, i really don't want to be installing fans.
  17. It has two: 1 rear, 1 front.
    An extra 3rd fan doesn't necessarily mean better airflow.
    But okay, give me a few hours I'll look into other options when I get home.

    Take your time man, i appreciate all your help, but i only see one fan and i read all the specs "Case Fans Intake 1) Front 120mm Fan"
  19. This case comes with 2 fans and also has front USB 3.0 ports:

    I am going to go with the first one you suggested Cooler Master HAF912 Mid Tower ATX Computer Case I read the reviews this time, it has two 120mm fans I am ok with that. Can you find me a SSD a little less the Vertex 4, and better RAM??

    I am retiring for the night, but will read your replies in the morning, thanks again man!
  21. I dont know why you want a 3570K and Z77 if you arent even OCing. Waste of money if you ask me, can be put to a more powerful video card. I know you arent gaming, but a 7850 will play anything on your resolution.

    Same with 16Gbs of RAM.

    Yeah... lighter17 and I are different people. :P

    Anyway, I find it slightly amusing how microcenter doesn't have any G.Skill products. Also, their RAM is a bit more expensive than Newegg.
    This is probably as good as it gets, if you don't mind shelling out $5 more.
    Corsair Vengeance 16gb (2x8gb)
    Crucial Ballistix Sport 16gb (2x8gb)

    I would just order from Newegg though. :P

    This Sandisk is $20 cheaper.

    My apologies Excella for confusing you. I am going to go with the Corsair Vengeance, why do you like the Sandisk over the Vertex 3 cause of the storage space?
  24. Just get the normal 3570 without the K then. You could spend/save more money.

    If you're getting the 3570, get the unlocked version or not at all. If you're not going to overclock get the 3470. There's no noticeable difference between 3.2 and 3.4GHz on a locked CPU.

    Oh I didn't see you already had a HD. That cuts down on the cost significantly then. Then you have room to get the 3570K and a low cost Z77 motherboard like the Asrock Pro 4 and then go for a Radeon 7870. That will be a good combo. You can always add a BD-R burner later after you get your system, it's really easy to do so.

    Theres no use in using an unlocked one. OP already mentioned he wasnt going to OC. Although, I do agree, but I guess the OP wants as much speed as he can get lol.

    Correct, i want as fast as i can get without overclocking. I have made a decision on all my hardware except the SSD, Excella likes the vertex three that i selected above, he likes the Sandisk, i am trying to find out why?
  28. Is there a reason to get a video card if you're not gaming. I think the Intel HD 4000 will do the work, won't it?

    Again the speed differences between 3.2 and 3.4GHz are so moot that it isn't worth spending the extra money. Here's a benchmark that shows what I am talking about: http://www.cpu-world.com/Compare/499/Intel_Core_i5_i5-3450_vs_Intel_Core_i5_i5-3570K.html

    The HD 4000 is mainly for diagnostic purposes, you can try to run off the CPU but you'll put a huge strain on most of your system. It's better to have a dedicated GPU in that regard.
  30. Vertex 3? Get the Vertex 4. Sandisk is quite a nice brand for SSDs, same goes for; Crucial, Mushkin, Samsung. You might want to check which ones will fit in your budget.

    The vertex 4 is not within my budget, the vertex 3 is Excella implies the sandisk is better then the vertex 3

    Also, isn't 16gb RAM alot? I would go 8gb ram and use the money for a better case, or get an aftermarket CPU cooler. Remember aftermarket CPU coolers can have problems with the heatspreaders of RAM so I would get Low Profile RAM such as the G.Skill Ares, and maybe the Cooler Master Hyper 212 if you plan overclocking.

    I can only get whats at microcenter.com cause i am walking in, you can never have enough ram, i will take my chances, i just need a SSD and i am good

    I didn't say I like the Vertex 3. Not saying I dislike it either though. It's a good SSD.
    Also, it's she* :P

    The Vertex 3 90gb you chose is $59.99, the 120gb is $109.99.
    The SanDisk 128gb is $79.99, they are all close in terms of performance.
  35. I would go Sandisk on this one. Most OCZ SSDs have quite high failure rates due to firmware updates and all that. (except the Vertex 4)

  42. Sorry if I missed an earlier post that explained this, but...
    *Why do you need a 60 dollar optical drive? You can save 40 getting a cheaper one.
    *From what you said, it doesn't seem like you need 16gb of RAM.

    Besides that, I think it looks good!
  43. ^It's a Blue-ray burner. The one he got is as cheap as those can get.
