I want to build a new desk top. I can get the i5-3570k at a cheap price(internal price).
so I am asking a build with i5-3570k. The budget is 600$ without cpu. Thanks a lot.
Happy new year. it is my build below, welcome to attack my old idea and correct something I missed

Gigabyte GA-Z77-D3H
Core i5 3570k @
Antec Kuhler h2o 620 28 Degrees C
8 GB DDR3-1600 PC3-12800 Corsair XMS-3 4x2gb

But I can get it cheaper than this one, why I have to pay more to buy a low level one?

i dont really know what you mean. if you can pick up the i5 3570k for cheaper, sure it can work, but then you would have to pay for a hyper 212 evo (120mm thin radiator liquid cooling systems suck) and a decent z77 chipset board to make use of a the k chip. otherwise there is no reason to get a i5 3570k



December 29, 2012 10:34:52 PM

can you just suggest me a build with i5-3570k, budget is 600$ excluding the cpu. Right now I have a free i5-3570k. I don't need too expensive Graphics card. 6770 or 7770 is enough for me to play diablo3.

Best solution

ok so you HAVE a i5 3570k on hand.

well if you are fine with a 6770 for gaming, why would you bother with a i5 3570k if a i3 would be "enough" for you? once you put that i5 with a 6770, you have a instant bottleneck.

gaming is not my main use for PC. and I already have the i5 3570k, as you said I want to max out the i5-3570k. but I don't really need a very decent graphics card

Thanks anyway.

This will get you high-ultra settings in most games out there...

If you want to lower the price some more, you can give the Sapphire 7870 a shot. Be warned, some people have had issues with this particular card. I'm fairly certain the issue has been resolved by now; however, if you would like to have that extra reliablity you can just go with the Gigabyte HD 7870.

what do you mean by Gigabyte? you mean replace the mother board or video card.
Can I just replace the 7870 to 7770 and spend more money on other parts to get more reliability? how about Samsung 30 nm Green PC3-12800 Low Profile 1.35 V DDR3, some one says it is better to overlock.
December 30, 2012 1:52:07 AM

You don't need to overclock your RAM. The performance increase will be insignificant.

And I was referring to the Gigabyte HD 7870 GPU. The Sapphire GPU should be just fine though.

I would just go with the build I or TheBigTroll recommended above. These builds are far faster in games than any build that has a HD 7770.

Diablo 3 is entirely about the graphics card. IMHO, even if you want to utterly cheap out on the graphics, the lowest new card you should buy is the 7850 2GB. That's rock bottom, or you're going to be missing out on some of the effects and smoothness at highest settings.

So start with a 7850 2GB (not 1GB), and then work from there. If you must increase your budget slightly, then do so. The 7770 will play D3, but it will lag and stutter on some scenes on highest settings. That's all there is to it. I also approve of the Antec 620, as it's better than any air cooler, and quieter, and it can often be found on special for cheap (like ~$50). I have this cooler, and it's great for most CPUs (my current FX-8350 will need a heavier duty water cooler, but that 3570K will be fine with the 620). I also approve of the Gigabyte motherboard, the 1GB WD Black HD, and the corsair power supply!
December 30, 2012 2:39:25 AM

some one says GA-Z77-D3H , gskill are more reliable. what do you think?
December 30, 2012 6:22:57 AM

how about the memory? which is better? gskill or Corsair?
December 30, 2012 6:37:53 AM

Doesn't matter. Both are good.

Just make sure you get low profile. If you decide to add a bulky CPU cooler to your system, you may run into clearance issues with RAM that has tall heatspreaders.
December 30, 2012 12:28:08 PM

samsung ram is the best stuff but then you dont need it so grab the cheapest (which is currenty the viper 3 from patriot)
December 30, 2012 2:36:04 PM

Excuse me , what is low profile? is MSI Z77A-G41 ATX LGA1155 Motherboard reliable?
Another guy suggest not buy MSI, purchase bGA or AsRock. Can you tell me more about it? I am worried about the reliability
December 30, 2012 3:40:11 PM

MSI is a great company. Their motherboards are highly reliable. I would suggest this motherboard. It's great for your needs and is only $85.

ASRock Z75 PRO3

This is low profile RAM...


This is NOT low profile RAM...
December 31, 2012 5:04:30 PM

I still have a question about the fan. Is it enough to overlock the CPU to 5.0 G(cpu is i5-3570k)
Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler
December 31, 2012 5:23:29 PM

so is it low profile of Patriot Viper 3 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory?
December 31, 2012 5:27:39 PM

you will need a custom loop to hit 5ghz. a hyper 212 is decent enough for 4.2-4.5ghz

its low profile enough. it fits under the noctua d14, which is the best heatsink you can get pretty much. that will reach 4.6-4.8ghz depending on the quality of the chip
December 31, 2012 6:55:12 PM

I am buying parts according your build plan, but Antec One ATX Mid Tower Case is out of stock. I want to get it done today to enjoy the rebate.
December 31, 2012 6:56:40 PM

XFX Core Edition PRO550W (P1-550S-XXB9) 550W ATX12V 2.2 & ESP12V 2.91 SLI is also out of sock.
December 31, 2012 6:58:08 PM

well they are both out of stock everywhere
December 31, 2012 6:59:28 PM

so can you give me a new build plan?
December 31, 2012 7:13:57 PM

only 500W, is it enough for 7870?
December 31, 2012 7:18:23 PM

how about this ? Corsair CX Series CX600 600W ATX 12V 80 Plus Bronze Power
December 31, 2012 7:33:06 PM

That PSU would be fine.

And 500w would be plenty for your setup. Even with overclocking you'll barely break the 400w threshold.
December 31, 2012 7:53:06 PM

but only the video card says it needs 500w. XFX Double D FX-787A-CDFC Radeon HD 7870

That's a recommendation for an entire build. Not solely for the video card.

The video card won't draw anymore than 200w under load.
December 31, 2012 8:10:20 PM

and ncix's shipping seems very slow. I prefer newegg

the corsair cx series are under the xfx in terms of quality and efficiency.

ncix shipping would be the same as others. they both use UPS
December 31, 2012 8:28:48 PM

And the blue drive is also not available now.
December 31, 2012 8:30:00 PM

new egg is 2-days free shipping(30days trial) and I have membership of amazon.

Thanks,I choose Antec NEO ECO 520C 520W
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod [...] 0neo%20520

I have a question about video card, can I replace it with ASUS HD7850-DC2-2GD5-V2 Radeon HD 7850 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
December 31, 2012 10:36:10 PM

Yes, you can replace it. You can do anything you want, but you're going to lose performance.

If I were you, I'd wait a while longer for supplies to be restocked and better deals.
December 31, 2012 11:18:49 PM

you lose about 15% performance by going to a 7850
December 31, 2012 11:56:12 PM

but it is out of stock. I don't want to wait. any option?
January 1, 2013 12:02:09 AM

I don't really know the diff bettween cards below? which is better?

XFX Core Edition FX-787A-CNFC Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

or
XFX Double D FX-787A-CDBC Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition Black Edition 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
January 1, 2013 12:12:14 AM

the double dissipation, the one i recommended.

onboard graphics will do until it gets back in stock. it takes about a week
January 1, 2013 12:18:48 AM

or HIS H787Q2G2M?
January 1, 2013 12:21:21 AM

ok, I got it, you mean the gpu inside i5-3570k.
