Alright so considering my 4 year old PC I have right now and some cash i have I want to build a gaming PC with a 950$ budget.
Here is what I put together this and I want advice on it.
Mobo: Gigabyte Z77M-U3H-MVp CPU: i5 3570k-3.4 Ghz planning to OC GPU: Sapphire Redeon 7870 2GB after I get some more money I plan on getting a second Card. PSU: Corsair CX600 Builder Series 600w Case: Cooler Master Elite 430 RAM: Kingston HyperX Blu 4x8GB 1600mhz CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO HDD: I have a spare 1TB 7200RPM WD Black at home

I'd go for a 2x8 gb kit of ram for around $60. You won't benefit with 32 gb, and it wastes valuable space on small capacity ssd's. Use the money saved for an ssd; I almost got a 64 gb one for $30 on craigslist yesterday, but was too late to respond.
30$?! I thought about an SSD for my OS but it sounds like something ill get sometime in the future.
Gigabyte Z77M-U3H-MV is not best performer for overclocking it limits your 35700k potential
go for any 150ish z77 board. asrock z77 extreme series is the cheapest solution
Well Im not going to Oc it much. maybe to 3.8Ghz So thats K I guess and should I OC my GPU?
I rebuilt it in PC Part Picker and I got this. Kingston HyperX 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory operating voltage of 1.65V exceeds Intel Ivy Bridge CPU recommended maximum of 1.5V.
Intel Core i5-3570K 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor and Kingston HyperX 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory are not compatible.
Something tells me They are wrong
^ lol yeah it is good that you notice 1,65 volt thing
swap it with corsair or gskill one, they are popular with intel i5 build and has 1,5v
I think Ill replace it with the G.Skill 2x4GB 8Gb 1600Ghz I forgot I ordered the mobo,ram and Cpu since it was ridiculously cheap but thats fine Once the hyperX's come in ill return them and get G.Skills, Thx for verifying.
