You get a free DVD burner with it . bigcyco1 November 26, 2012 2:27:28 AM I would go for this one if your planing on overclocking your gpu http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Ask ! Get the answer nvalhalla November 26, 2012 2:29:09 AM RAM is fine. Love the PSU, the DVD drive makes it a no-brainer nvalhalla November 26, 2012 2:31:03 AM The SeaSonic is nice, little more efficient. No DVD drive, so it's a lesser value, but the extra Amps on the 12v rail are nice. The PC P&C is modular though, which is nice. Either way, both are plenty of power. dotsilent November 26, 2012 2:31:50 AM Definitely overclocking the GPU so http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... is looking pretty good. Any suggestions on RAM. Is the one I picked a good quality? nvalhalla November 26, 2012 2:33:13 AM Just noticed the SeaSonic is modular too, so there you go, another point for that one. I guess I would go with the SeaSonic, extra amps and 80+ Gold wins it nvalhalla November 26, 2012 2:34:52 AM Yeah, RAM is nice, great price. 9-9-9-24 timing at 1600 and 1.5v is very nice Best solution nvalhalla November 26, 2012 2:40:07 AM If you want to cut out Amazon and save on shipping, this is comparable http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... bigcyco1 November 26, 2012 2:40:12 AM Your choice on ram is fine.I use it in my other build works great! dotsilent November 26, 2012 3:29:52 AM Do you guys think I should replace the motherboard I chose with this one. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Because it comes with the free ram it wouldnt be that much more then the current one I picked. DarkSable November 26, 2012 3:30:18 AM You can save yourself some money by getting an H77 chipset motherboard instead of a z77 one - the only reasons for z77 are overclocking and SLI/Xfire. dotsilent November 26, 2012 3:34:00 AM I plan on overclocking my graphics card and adding another 670 later one next year. Sorry I should have mentioned that. Im just wondering if the extreme 6 is worth the $30 upgrade cutebeans November 26, 2012 3:41:21 AM Get a Corsair TX750 which is on sale right now. nvalhalla November 26, 2012 3:42:30 AM Link is broken. What was the MB you are looking at? dotsilent November 26, 2012 3:44:54 AM ASRock Z77 Extreme6 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard $160 Is the one im looking at on newegg. It comes with a free 8gb of ram which I would be spending $30 on so total the upgrade from the extreme3 would cost me $30 dotsilent November 26, 2012 3:51:44 AM Pretty much I have a leftover $100 to spend so if you see anything worth the upgrade i could go for it. Graphics card wise id like to stick to nvidia though. bigcyco1 November 26, 2012 3:53:09 AM It's worth it if you buy the i5-3570k otherwise it's pretty pointless investment imo. dotsilent November 26, 2012 4:18:05 AM Parts ordered thank you for all of your help everyone. dotsilent November 26, 2012 4:20:10 AM Best answer selected by dotsilent. bigcyco1 November 26, 2012 4:22:59 AM Your welcome.What did you end up getting?
