You don't need that sound card. It's a mid-range sound card and your motherboard will have equal or better audio. The only improvement to make for sound would be spending $75-$150 on a sound card which I deem unnecessary.

Which model of Coolermaster power supply is that? The only good 650w they make is the Silent Pro, if its not a Silent Pro then do not buy. Unless you're handy with a fire extinguisher. Your build would get by fine on 500w. Get something like this...

SeaSonic S12II 520 Bronze 520W

THAT is a power supply.

Yes you have all the parts you need. Good choice on the motherboard and CPU. For GPU I would probably go with the HD7870 because its the same price and offers better performance in most titles. But that's up to you.

I would but it won't be that fast, for the same price get an i5 3570k and an ssd, or upgrade the gpu to a gtx 670 or radeon hd 7950

If you are planning on playing with high anti-aliasing, I would get the 7870 instead, if you are looking to overclock get a 7950.

The new catalyst drivers improve the 7870, however if you get a gtx 660 you can get a 500 watt psu.

The gtx 660 is not a bad choice though.

Hmmm, I see 7870 winning 80% of the titles. And on the ones where the 660 wins AA is not used or really low settings. Unless in your original post you meant to type 660ti. Which yes the 660ti is generally better but its also the same price as the 7950 which is better. Also AMD cards overclock better than 660 series cards.

http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/548?vs=660

You do not need 650w. The 660 does not use very much power, neither does your CPU. I run a system similar to yours with a 7870, 5 hard drives, a half dozen fans, and 2 light strips and I pull 375w from the wall at full load. 500w is more than enough.

Okay, if you are rendering stick with the i7, if you are not planning on extreme gaming, the 660 is good.

You will max out WoW easily. Crysis 3 you can maybe play on high settings. It's hard to tell when it hasnt been released yet. I played the BETA on a FX-8320 and a GTX560ti and I had to play on medium. The BETA isn't optimized yet but looking at the projected recommened specs for Crysis 3 you should be alright.

Well that still only leaves you with $250 for GPU so your options are 7870 or GTX660...

This uses a 7950 but goes $35 over budget.

Yeah the 7950 is top notch. Really high overclock potential too.

Okay but the case will not work because it doesn't have a spot for the front panel 3.0 usb so any suggestions on a case you can spend a little more because you can deduct $75 dollars from the bill because if you go to the micro center and buy the motherboard and gpu you $75 dollars off which some of that can be put to a better case that has front panel 3.0 usb

Well this one has USB 3.0 front panel and isn't very expensive. I actually am using one right now for my latest build.

This one is great too:

Corsair Carbide Series 300R
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Same one only with a windowed side panel.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

These are nice too, come in a variety of colors and with without windows
Fractal Design Define R4 with Window Titanium Grey
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

There's a ton of cases that fit your $50-$125 case budget with front panel USB 3.0. Cases are really a matter of personal taste.

for a case, consider the antec three hundred two(similar features as haf 912 but also has front panel usb 3.0 ports).

And OP, if you want to post a potential build from pcpartpicker.com, click the bbcode markup button at the top after you are finished building. A window will pop up. cut and past the info from that window into the text box on this forum. when you hit preview, you will get a nice condensed post with working links that doesn't take forever and a day to scroll up and down through.

I would go with three i7-3770k and a Z77 board. If you do a lot of rendering, you can make good use of Quick Sync which is only available on Ivy Bridge.
m

December 5, 2012 11:13:35 AM

uh, quick sync is accelerated video encoding and decoding(nothing to do with 3d? rendering). sandy bridge has quick sync too, it's just somewhat slower than ivy in that regard. No reason to get z77 when a z75 will overclock an unlocked i7 and is cheaper.

whats better for gaming and rendering from a non biased opinion the amd hd 3gb 7950 or the nvidia 660 3gb and why its better thanks!!!

December 7, 2012 3:50:22 AM

whether you mean gtx660ti or gtx660(non ti), the hd7950 is probably better at games(some would say it matches gtx670 in that regard).

For rendering, it depends on the programming language. The gtx660(ti) has cuda support, but performs worse than the previous generation.

The HD7000 series(hd7750 and up) are compute monsters(very good at compute). Again it depends what rendering software you use.

Not a big audiophile, so I'm not sure. generally a sound card should have no trouble fitting in a decent size case like a haf 922. You probably have at least 2 optical bays as well(one for an optical drive, one for a front audio panel that came with the sound card if it's one of that expensive breed).
