  1. not getting you a i5 3570k when your graphics card cant play stuff well at medium settings

    this will max it out no problem

  2. But I can get it cheaper than this one, why I have to pay more to buy a low level one?
  3. 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
  4. 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.
  5. Best answer
    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.

  6. 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
  7. Thanks anyway.
  8. 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.

    SAPPHIRE 100354OCL Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition 2GB
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814202010&nm_mc=AFC-C8Junction&cm_mmc=AFC-C8Junction-_-na-_-na-_-na&AID=10446076&PID=3938566&SID=
  9. 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.
  10. 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!
  12. some one says GA-Z77-D3H , gskill are more reliable. what do you think?
  13. how about the memory? which is better? gskill or Corsair?
  14. 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.
  15. samsung ram is the best stuff but then you dont need it so grab the cheapest (which is currenty the viper 3 from patriot)
  16. 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
  17. 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
    http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007P709YI/?tag=pcpapi-20

    This is low profile RAM...


    This is NOT low profile RAM...
  18. 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
  19. so is it low profile of Patriot Viper 3 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory?
  20. 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
  21. 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.
  22. XFX Core Edition PRO550W (P1-550S-XXB9) 550W ATX12V 2.2 & ESP12V 2.91 SLI is also out of sock.
  23. well they are both out of stock everywhere
  24. so can you give me a new build plan?
  25. you can get this case. if your cart goes over 50 bucks, you get free shipping. keep that in mind when ordering

    http://us.ncix.com/products/?sku=55583&vpn=RC-912-KKN1&manufacture=COOLERMASTER&promoid=1033

    psu can be replaced by this. more expensive, but it is now modular.
    http://us.ncix.com/products/?sku=65318&vpn=PPCMK3S500&manufacture=PC%20Power%20%26%20Cooling
  26. only 500W, is it enough for 7870?
  27. how about this ? Corsair CX Series CX600 600W ATX 12V 80 Plus Bronze Power
  28. That PSU would be fine.

    And 500w would be plenty for your setup. Even with overclocking you'll barely break the 400w threshold.
  29. but only the video card says it needs 500w. XFX Double D FX-787A-CDFC Radeon HD 7870
  30. There is another issue, this power supply is not available.

    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.
  32. and ncix's shipping seems very slow. I prefer newegg
  33. Thanks a lot , but it is not available. I want to build it up this weekend.
  34. 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
  35. And the blue drive is also not available now.
  36. new egg is 2-days free shipping(30days trial) and I have membership of amazon.
  37. but the xfx is out of stock.
  38. I mean this psu is not available now and the blue drive
    http://us.ncix.com/products/?sku=6 [...] %20Cooling
  39. it is out of stock too. ...XFX Double D FX-787A-CDFC Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  40. 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
  41. 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.
  42. you lose about 15% performance by going to a 7850
  43. but it is out of stock. I don't want to wait. any option?
  44. 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
  45. the double dissipation, the one i recommended.

    onboard graphics will do until it gets back in stock. it takes about a week
  46. or HIS H787Q2G2M?
  47. ok, I got it, you mean the gpu inside i5-3570k.
