    for a $1500 budget, and i assume that's US Dollars & hence you're buying in the US, you definitely deserve a 3570K in there.

    you can use a USB wifi dongle or a built-in PCI/PCIe wifi card, preferably with an antenna or two. i remember them not costing more $50 at worse, last i checked.

    not sure if you'll be needing a mouse, keyboard and monitor.
  2. ^ The build above is pretty good. Just be careful when you get Patriot memory. Evwn though they claim it's "100% hand tested" the failure rate is high as a motha. I ordered 2 4GB sticks from them, 1 came DOA. Seems it's been happening to a lot of people.

  3. For $1500 your build isn't very good.

    don't know how much that adds up with your keyboard + mouse, but if you're over budget, consider grabbing Asrock's Z77 extreme4 motherboard instead or the extreme3 if you're willing. if that still doesn't work out, then you need to decide whether you can go by without the SSD or go one GPU price tier lower (660ti/7950)
