help me rebuild...what to keep and what to sell!!

Hello all im looking for advice for my new rebuild...I have two systems up and running and want all the best in one and am gonna sell the other...ill list all the parts and you tell me what goes in the machine I keep :)

Keep in mind I want to run atleast 4.4ghz!

Also i will be keeping all SSD's listed just let me know what one to use for OS/games/programs/storage/etc... :)

2x Intel i5 3750k - Gee wich one to keep?! LOL

EVGA GTX 580 1.5GB
EVGA 670 2GB Reference

Asrock Extreme4 Gen3
Asus P8z77 Pro

Pyro III 60GB
Intel 320 series 120GB
OCZ Vertex 3 120GB
Crucial M4 256GB

WD Raptor Sata III 10k 600GB
WD 2TB Black

Corsair HX850
Coolermaster Silent Pro 850

CPU Cooler's
**The H100 only fits the case i dont like as much so whats the real differnce in temps?

Both systems running 4x4GB (16GB) Corsair vengance 1600mhz

Now to me the Asrock mobo seems higher end and actually supports pcie 3.0 but no native usb 3 controller? (z67?)
The other being z77 supports pcie 3.0 and uses the ivy bridge for usb 3..? is that the only true difference?

Keep in mind if i keep the 670 i will sli later on...

Thanks for the feed back..!

  1. 670
    Pyro - OS
    HDD - up to you
    There isn't much of a difference. (H80 v H100)
  2. so pyro is better than the M4? and why the choice of motherboard? Just newer up to date...overall better?

    Ivy Bridge is sometimes a little finicky with Sandy Bridge chipsets. Z77 also natively supports USB 3.0 and PCI Express 3.0.

    The Pyro has faster read/write times, last time I checked. It's best to keep the files away from the OS, too. Windows will use up that 60 GB in 5 years. ;)
