So heres my build sofar. I am not planning to overclock so thats not an issue to be considered. Gonna be using for gaming mostly. What i would like to get some help with is, i read that the 3770 is better then the 3820 on stock settings, right?
If so, is that motherboard going to be a good choice?
thanks in advance
The i5-3450 will give 98% of the gaming performance of an i7-3770 for like $120 less. You could put that cash towards a better PSU firstly, 500W is fine but I'd get something reputable like a Seasonic or something. After that you could either bump of the GPU to the GTX 660Ti or similar, get a SSD or a better case.
