  1. ♦ cheaper psu : $47.99 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139028

    ♦ Cheaper motherboard and u still can overclock easily $94.99
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157297

    now you saved $67

    the other parts you cant play with its prices.

    good luck ;)
  2. Thank you, i only needed that!
    lol we just gave advice on the same topic btw xD
  3. Just one more question, since I live in Germany, (American Military) and i HAVE to buy a gigabyte board because mobos dont ship here, what do u suggest?
  4. if you want a gigabyte board with z77 chipset to overclock with low price then you should go with this -> http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128547

    Or this -> http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128543

    and for $134 you can get the z77x-d3h which is amazing board for overclocking :)

    just trust me and hit the best answer lol
  5. You could easily run that build on the EA-380D even with overclocking. You're going to pull like 250W max even with overclocking.
  6. How do i hit best answer? i cant find it #imanoob
  7. you will find it at the right of any of my answers :) (Select As Best Answer)
  8. You don't want Kingston RAM. It runs at 1.65V and voids warranty on intel CPUs.

    I'd seriously suggest getting a B75/H77 board, i3-3220, and a good GPU.

    ♦ dude i think your wrong the kingston 4 gb ram runs at 1.65V but he wants the 8 gigs and the 8 gigs single module run at 1.5V.
    ♦ and about the cpu since he wants the i5 3570k the i3 3220 will be a big drop of performance.
  10. You don't want single module as it is single channel only. Plus 2x4GB: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820104173
    1x8GB does run at 1.5V, but halves performance compared to 2x4GB.

    If it's main purpose is gaming then the 3220 won't bottleneck any current single-GPU card. It's still pretty fast at other stuff assuming you aren't doing major photoshop/video work. What's it going to be used for?

    ♦ i agree that the i3 3220 will not bottleneck and i am not underestimate the dual core cpu's but if i can afford the 3570k why should i get the 3220.
    ♦ about the ram i completely agree with you that getting a dual channel ram like this -> http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233144 is a way better than a single module.
  12. My point is that if it is for gaming and you have a choice between i3 + 7870 or i5 and 7770 the 7870 is the better option.

    That RAM is good.
  13. Not all Kingston RAM runs at 1.65v. true that he will want 1.5v though.

    MSI boards facing alot of problems these !



    I bought one, I am happy with it.

    I know not the greatest board out there, but z77 that offers (admittedly limited) overclocking for $70 is hard to argue with.
  15. I put an ASUS board in my friend's PC and that was a nightmare. Coil whine and crappy drivers. Swapped it out for an MSI board and it hasn't missed a beat. You'll find that most motherboard manufacturers are OK, some just have good or bad experiences with particular ones. In general I have had terrible experiences with ASUS and Foxconn but ASRock, MSI and Gigabyte have been great.
  16. This will be used for Battlefield 3 Multiplayer, and I've done my research, and I know that I will need a true quad core for overclocking. Plus I want to overclock, and there isn't an i5 3xxxk is there? ( i would so buy tho xD)

    The ram, is there another company? i will b using 2 sticks i think
  17. Kingston is fine, just make sure it's 1.5v or lower.

    The i5-3570K IS a true quad core and you can overclock with it. With a high air flow case and a decent CPU cooler, 4.5Ghz shouldn't be too much of a problem.
  18. trust me and go with this dual channel i tried them and it performs nicely

    I have a 3570k running on that $70 msi board i linked to earlier, a $60 antec water cooler and running smoothly at 4.2 ghz in a $40 antec one case that came with 4 case fans
  20. Cool thanks, im going to log in and out to see if best answer appears xD
  21. Nope. this happened to me on another thread too :(
  22. lol its a big fatty button at the right of all users answers :D
