New gear.

I am currently overhauling my build. I plan on buying the following parts but I would love input or preferences on brands and models. Maybe completely different parts. - MB - Prossesor - Video Card

Anything wrong with compatibility maybe know faulty models or anything? I do not want to make same mistake as my last build.

Thanks in advance.

  1. need to know all the parts

    and i7s are not for games
  2. The other parts are basic.
    750W PSU
    Windows 7 OS
    16G of RAM
    550gig HDD

    If specific models are needed i can get them.

    Whats wrong with i7s?
  3. Best answer
    ok then. just change out the i7 for a i5 3570k if you are not doing at least 3hrs of work a day involving video editing and rendering
  4. that work then?

    How about motherboard i paying to much for one or is that about right?
    And any preference on the video card?
  5. didnt notice the one i linked did not have a "K" would this be better?
  6. k would mean overclocking. without the k would mean no overclocking.

    if you are not to be overclocking this rig, id suggest getting a different motherboard
  7. It wont hurt performence if I do not over clock with this board dose it? I want to have the option but if i never do, I do not want it to back fire
  8. its just saving money thats about it. if you are going to buy a k chip without overclocking, it would mean 40 dollars wasted on the CPU and another 20-40 on the motherboard
  9. Ill just stick with this so i have the option thanks for the help! No last opinions on the video card?
  10. Quck question (i know socket change) but is this:
    Prossesor better than the one im getting?
  11. just change the CPU to a i5 of some sort. no i7s

    and no, the i5 670 wont perform as well. its 3 generations old from what i know
  12. Alright thanks again!
