Hello I need some new input on a new computer. I will use it for gaming (1080 resolution), some advanced excel and some database tasks. I am Norwegian and the biggest PC component site here is komplett.no also kelkoo.no is like a price search engine which can be used if komplett doesn't have some parts or they are cheaper elsewere, I also included link to all the part categories under so you can hopefully navigate the site easily. My budget is roughly 12.000 kr (including monitor) which I think is roughly equally to 1000-1400$ (for pc parts), but I can spend over that if some parts make a big difference etc.
So the first thing I need some help with is if this pack is worth it. The parts included cost 6.433 bought seperately and the pack cost 5.795 which is a nice discount.
It contains: CPU: Intel® LGA1155 Core i5-3570K Motherboard: ASUS P8Z77-V LX, Socket-1155, ATX, Z77, DDR3, 1xG3+1xG2-PCIe-x16, CFX, VGA, DVI, HDMI, UEFI Ram: Corsair XMS3 1600MHz 16GB Vengeance CL9 GPU: Gainward GeForce GTX670 2GB GDDR5 PCI-E
I'm no expert and I just picked some parts that I have heard is good in some reviews so feel free to change anything, also will the CPU cooler fit with this RAM and motherboard?
The build looks very nice.
I would not change a thing.
At 1080P a GTX670 is very good.
If replacing the pack costs you anything more(net) to get a GTX680, it is probably not worth it.
There is very little advantage to the GTX680 @1080P compared to the GTX670.
