Since the holiday sell is going on, this build is only $1014.00
But i have a few questions
I do not plan on upgrading or SLCing or overclocking.
Would any of the parts bottleneck my rig? judging by the specs i listed above?
Should i keep on waiting? I know the 700 nividia series are coming out next year so the gtx 670 is gonna get cheaper soon but how long would i have to wait before this same build becomes even cheaper than the $1014.00 holiday special price listed above? The holiday special is only gonna last 2 more days so i wanna decide before its over.
Since i do not plan on OCing, there should be no improvement between a i5 3570 and a i5 3570k right?
Could this build run BF3, Crysis 3, GTA 5 and Far Cry 3 on max settings on a 1680x1024 resolution with good fps? if not than how bout a 1280x1024 resolution?
drop the water cooling system since you dont plan to OC, you dont need any aftermarket cooler.
I could get a Intel Certified CPU Fan & Heatsink for 20 bucks less on the selection menu but i'll rather get the Asetek 510LC Liquid Cooler since it'll be more silent and my landlord doesn't allow me to use a AC during the summer.
That build is way better for only 80 dollars more, you get an ultra fast SSD to put your games/OS on, a 64mb cache/7200RPM drive. A better motherboard(that's ATX, not mATX, never buy mATX unless you have to), you get dual channel memory. And a good case.
Also a Hyper Evo and any other air cooler around that price range like a 212+ or Xigmatek Dark Knight will easily beat that mediocre closed loop unit you currently have. Cheap closed loop units tend to cool very badly, and they also carry the risks associated with water, such as leaking and corrosion. Additionally the 212 Evo is quiter at 9-36dbls, the average noise of a case fan. Also the H77 ASRock board has support for Gen3 speeds, meaning your GPU can be faster and won't be bottlenecked by Gen2 speeds.
