Is it possible to make a rig using the i5 3570k around/under 900$? Here is my list I made on newegg.com. The on request I have is it to not go over 950$ and use an intel processor (preferably the i53570k). Is there anything I can do to this list to make it cheaper?
Get lower power supply, that is overkill for you. Get the evo instead its 5 dollars more than the plus, but cools better on ivy bridge. You can find cheaper hard drives. You can spend a little more money on Gpu for a nicer one. Be wary of high profile ram and compatibility with the hyper series. You can downgrade mobo a bit of you are not going to overclock hardcore.
You should be able to overclock any of those combos easily and all of the brands there are fairly good. With this set up you can easily overclock and or crossfire in the future if you want to all you would need to do is get more airflow in your case than you already do by adding aftermarket fans. The 7950 is a nicer card than the 7870 and will last you longer, but both are leaps above your original. I would advise you to get the 7950, but if budget is your concern get the 7870.
