I want to build my own system. I want to game with it, use it for desinging programs such as SolidWorks CAD etc. and i want a fast PC when i am not gaming. but just fast when i enter my files etc.

These are the hardware i choose:
Motherboard: Asus Sabertooth z77
CPU: Intel i7-3770k
Ram: Corsair Vengeance DD3, 1600-8Gb KIT
Graphicscard: Sapphire Radeon HD7950 Boost, 3GB
PSU: Cooler master GX 650 watt
HDD: Seagate Barracuda 1 TB
SSD: Sandisk stander 64GB


are there any Bottlenecks? will this be a powerfull build? what are your oppinions of this build?

I look forward to your answers,

Jellyvish,

Assuming the CAD can use the hyperthreads and you do it enough to make it worth the extra $100 then the 3770k is fine. But, since you have the K you may as well throw in a $35 air cooler to allow easy overclocking now or down the road.

I agree the Sabertooth is complete overkill. A $130-$150 would serve you well, $180 if you really feel the need.

@J_E_D_70 +1 Isn't the i7-3770k a little over-kill?

try this bench here and if u really think that the $100 more is needed, then go for it,although the over-clocked i5-3570k may reach the i7 level.

My suggestion build - You can overclock the cpu by increasing BLCK to 125MHz. If you can change the max multiplier to 36 then you have 4,5GHz when one core is active and 4,2Ghz when all are. You will need to try. Or you can add i7-3930K and increase the multiplier as it's unlocked.

Nah keep the I7. Dont listen to the people that tell you to get an I5. I7 is faster and overclocks alot more. My I5-3570k cant go over 4.3ghz (some are flawed). I am now waiting for I7-4770k. Get the I7. Also try and get 128MB SSD. 64 will go out quick. If you can though.

Well for RAM-intensive programs like Solid Works it would benefit more from having a faster CPU than anything else you can get, so that's where the i7-3930K would be warranted. If this were a gaming rig I'd say i5, but this is where you would benefit.

You don't benefit from purchasing a Sabertooth - it's an expensive overrated gimmick board and that thermal armor traps the heat it and recirculates it when it was designed to prevent it.

Since I don't know his budget I can't make any real recommendation; My personally recommendation is i7-3930K, 32GB Quadchannel, AMD W7000 - 50% if it's the users first purchase and the rest parts that within my suggest build (storage config, cooler and psu)

I think you should consider replacing your PSU if youre gonna be Overclocking :) 
Try brands like seasonic, corsair or silverstone :)
