  1. whats it for?

    if gaming you only need a 3570k

    and only need 8gb ram

    and a gtx670 is near enough as fast as a gtx680 but a fair bit cheaper

    do you use blu ray? if not just get a dvd burner
  2. Just gaming that is all it will be used for and no i do not watch blue ray. Thank you for the feedback.
  3. The games it will be used for are World of Warcraft, Firefall, Diablo 3, and Etc. Those are the main games it will be playing.
  4. do you need thunderbolt?

    could also save money on the motherboard if you dont

    not in the usa but sure you can save quite a few hundred dollars

    no doubt a usa member can give you a parts list

    edit--

    would guess you could save about $400 or so and still have a really good gaming pc
  5. I doubt i do but it was referred to by a friend. If i was to go without the thunderbolt would you recommend (GIGABYTE GA-Z77-DS3H LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard)? $109.99
  6. I'll take a look thank you.

    With a $2000 limit, you can SLI the 670's. But I would save the money.
