  1. It should run fine. Here's a little revision, cut costs where I could but didn't sacrifice quality and efficiency.

    Click the price breakdown link if you wish only to buy from Newegg Canada. It would have a sum of $792.92, though at the amount you saved, you can upgrade the GPU to a much more powerful 7870.

    P.S - With your budget, don't bother with a 1gb 7850.
  2. If you're overclocking with the 3570K, you are definitely going to want to install a CPU cooler, so you don't have to do it later.

    Other than that, it looks good.

    And excella, I can't believe you're addict status already!
  3. :lol: I'm quite surprised as well, got it a few days ago and I didn't notice it at once. :P
  4. Instead of that 7850 on excella's build, get a 7870.

  5. It's good, but the ASUS I linked is cheaper and they're basically the same thing.
