Do you need to buy OS: Windows 7 home premium (I have windows 8 on my laptop and I prefer 7)
SLI or Crossfire: No
Need help selecting mobo, as I'm not sure if it worth getting a Sabertooth Z77 for the build I am doing.
Also looking at a fan control panel (Not sure what they are called, due to the amount of fans in the Haf x and noise levels is a concern, but I'm not really that fussed about that, unless it sounds like a jumbo jet.)
Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($38.99 @ NCIX US)
Storage: Crucial M4 64GB 2.5" Solid State Disk ($72.45 @ B&H) (Just putting my OS and a bit of editing software on here)
Storage: Seagate Barracuda 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($67.99 @ NCIX US)
Video Card: MSI Radeon HD 7770 GHz Edition 1GB Video Card ($117.55 @ Newegg)
Case: Cooler Master HAF X ATX Full Tower Case ($149.99 @ Newegg)
Power Supply: OCZ ModXStream Pro 700W 80 PLUS Certified ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply ($59.99 @ Newegg)
It is a LOT faster.
The only real sacrifice is that it features a rather generic case so assembling it will won't really be fun.And it's cooling performance is suboptimal but that can be fixed by adding a front fan.
I reccomend this one http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1683...
